Best gaming LCD I've seen
urchased this from B&HPhotoVideo store at $265 shipped, installed a few days ago and 144Hz works flawlessly with my 670 SLI! haven't tested most demanding games, but now surely I can finally turn off Vsync (even adaptive) completely in some games to eliminate any kind of lag (adaptive vsync) or tearing (e.g. vsync off on 60hz monitor).
I love the stand, it's very stable and allows for all direction adjustments, similar to my former most favorite Dell Ultrasharp kind.
Good colour reproduction, Tilt and roation adjustment
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.
Matte screen surface offered good glare-reduction
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.
Fast response time
Looking at the features and user reviews, it looks like they made good job manufacturing this ASUS VG248QE. It's obviously made with gamers and movie & sports viewers on mind because of fast response and refresh rates. For professional image editing, it might not be optimal though. That said, for most uses the monitor is great.
Refresh rate of 144 Hz
The ASUS VG248QE is not perfect. There might be some color leakage at the back but this is the best quality gaming monitor you will get at this price. If gaming is your top priority then this monitor will complete your gaming setup to the fullest.
Nice build quality
The ASUS VG248QE 144hz monitor is an excellent screen for 3D gaming. In this regard it is a worthwhile purchase and will cost around £100 less than the bigger 27inch ASUS VG278HE 144hz which we reviewed back in October 2012.
While we can't find the VG248QE on sale yet in the United Kingdom, ASUS informed us that it will be priced around the £300-£320 mark, inc vat. At this price it does face stiff competition, especially from products already in the ASUS portfolio.
Decent color accuracy and contrast
While the ViewSonic TD2340 is most definitely a niche product, the asking price is fair, and the quality of the hardware is a commendable step in the right direction.
Great monitor for the price
OK, so i really think that this is absolutely a great product. other reviews made no justice with it.
but first i need to mention a weak point: this really makes no sense to add a regular analog monitor cable and dismiss the HDMI cable. so you get this great looking monitor and you need to wait until you get to buy a new cable to use it... benq, common ,it is a digital world!
Looks good, feels okay
was really skeptical when I first saw this deal. A stylish, cheap, and IPS monitor. After a few decent reviews I decided to order and give AOC a try.
When I first opened up the box, everything looked amazing and gorgeous. Once I started to put it together, I began to have my doubts. I assembled everything together, however my monitor was slightly tilted. When I checked the stand, I noticed that the monitor was not completely locked into place.
Nice IPS monitor for the price, but there are caveats
My reliable HP 2509m monitor got the black screen of death after 3 years of use. I began researching IPS monitors and I had narrowed my selections to Asus, Dell and Viewsonic, but at the last moment HP released the Xi series of IPS monitors with great specs: an IPS LED-lit panel with an almost bezeless screen, with HDMI, DVI and VGA, all for less than the price of competitors I researched.
An Excellent Screen
I'm very pleased with this purchase. The one issue I was mildly concerned about, the stand, is actually no problem at all. The screen is mounted on a swivel that gives a (for my needs) adequate range - you can tilt it so the screen is slightly inclined toward the front, or back slightly. Otherwise, it pairs without problem with my MacBook. Good stuff.
A solid monitor, with great upsides, and some downsides as well
This monitor is great. I feel like I am staring into another universe when using it. Doesn't feel like I am looking at a screen.
It looks nice, especially when turned off (because the bezel looks so thin... its not actually that thin).
The color is great. Pictures I have seen for years all of a sudden look better, Like I am seeing them for the first time (and my last monitor wasnt even bad... it just wasn't IPS i guess)
It is nice and thin as well.
