Killer Pro Photo & Graphics Monitor
I personally would recommend this monitor to anyone needing to see truly accurate photos and graphics in their work. I will also tell you everything else looks wonderful as well. All my email, word processing, spreadsheet and browser programs shine with clear and very sharp, accurate, super readable fonts. The extra real estate I get with my Windows 7 Pro desktop is greatly appreciated as well. It's native 1920 x 1200 resolution is a joy.
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.
The monitor works great easy to use and setup and looks very good. I bought it mostly to play my PS3 and switch to my desktop computer. The monitor supports 2 simultaneous hdmi connections (up to 3 total if you also use the vga connection for a pc) which makes it easy to enjoy the highest settings on my devices. When you stop nit-picking everything and realize that game menus aren't everything, the graphics look great on my games and cpu and above all performance is VERY SMOOTH .
I picked up this monitor a few weeks ago to replace a 60hz Asus 27" monitor that I had. I have eyes that are pretty sensitive and after viewing anything for a few hours on my other monitor I could get a headache fairly easily. I used to never get a headache with my old 160hz CRT. When I heard Asus was going to take their 3D monitor, drop the 3D stuff that came with it and produce a 144hz version of their 120hz 3D monitor I was pretty pumped.
Good for the price
It's pretty much perfect. They send a installation cd in the box but you don't need to use it it's just for if ever there's a problem where the monitor has to be completly reconfigured, but not like for image adjustment. The only real problem for some people would be that you can't adjust the height and angle of the monitor, and it's very slightly tilted forward but you can't tell unless your stare at it from the side.
Poor color uniformity
The ViewSonic V3D231 monitor is another way to get 3D if you want an alternative to active 3D. With the choice between active and passive 3D I would tend to use passive myself, but that would be with monitors that were equal in other regards. The ViewSonic unfortunately underperformed on the bench with poor color uniformity, very poor low light grayscale performance, and a lack of peak light output. It also has a contrast ratio that is very poor for the screen size and lighting technology used.
Delivers snappy visuals and surprisingly good 3D for PC gaming.
Priced at around $399, the 23" V3D231offers a sharp, vibrant picture and looks outstanding in any dimension. For PC games that are not native 3D applications however, be prepared to spend some time getting them to work properly with the V3D231 and the TriDef 3D software.
Again, this isn't entirely the fault of Viewsonic or TriDef 3D-it's just the lamentable lack of a universal, standardized technology for 3D PC gaming.
