  • The Asus PA249Q delivers the rich, accurate colors that graphics professionals require and it's jam-packed with features but it has trouble at the dark end of the grayscale, and it's expensive.


  • The Asus VG248QE is a 24-inch gaming monitor featuring a 144Hz refresh rate, a speedy pixel response, and a highly adjustable stand. It's a good performer but could use a few more gamer-centric features.


  • I think most of us will agree that a decent 120-144Hz screen is a rather desirable little gaming panel, minus forking out for an Nvidia 3D Vision bundle. Sure, Asus has got some impressive screen technology in its monitor range, but it needs to get a lot more competitive on the price front given the value on offer from both BenQ and Iiyama at the moment.

  • Rating Unavailable

    ASUS are fairly unambiguous in their marketing of the VG248QE on their website, on their printed materials and on the base of the monitor itself. This is designed to be a gaming monitor that delivers a super-responsive experience in fast paced games. With its super-low input lag, very good pixel responsiveness (with configurable overdrive) and 144Hz refresh rate the monitor does deliver a superbly smooth gaming experience.


  • Well-priced and powerful, the Asus PB278Q is the best entry point for those seeking an extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price.


  • While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong color and viewing angle performance for around $500 less, and it has a highly adjustable stand and an audio input, both of which are missing from the Series 9. The Series 9 has a USB hub, however, while the PB278Q doesn't. The IPS-based Dell UltraSharp 2713HM offers similar performance and a more robust feature set at a competitive price, which is why it remains our Editors' Choice for big-screen monitors.


  • Asus' PB278Q is quite nice indeed for the price, offering a no-frills premium panel for those who are looking to save pennies.
