ASUS Gimbal G3M-B1

ASUS G3M-B1 is the first foldable gimbal stabilizer for smartphones that lets users capture smooth, professional-quality video of their precious moments anytime, anywhere. With 3-axis stabilization technology, 360-degree horizontal pan and intuitive operation via integrated buttons or the companion smartphone app, ASUS Gimbal G3M-B1 provides exceptional control and ease of use. Its ultraportable, compact form factor and minimalist design offer the perfect combination of features, aesthetics and mobility for users who want to capture the best-quality video with their smartphone.


ASUS VG49V is an impressive 49-inch Dual Full HD gaming monitor. The monitor’s VA panel stretches a super-ultra-wide 32:9 aspect ratio over an 1800R curve that brings the far edges closer for a more immersive experience. The 3840 x 1080 resolution is exactly twice as wide as 1080p, which is why it’s dubbed Double Full HD or DFHD. Users get double the horizontal space of a Full HD monitor, which is tons of width to expand games deep into their periphery and view multiple open windows and tabs.
