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.
Loaded with features, Energy efficient
For businesses seeking a full featured monitor that is budget-friendly and inexpensive to operate, the Viewsonic VG2437mc-LED is a good bet. It offers good colour and greyscale performance and lots of features, including an ergonomic stand and a built-in webcam. Its motion handling prowess makes it ideal for after-hours use as well.
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 purchased this monitor to hook up to a retina MacBook Pro. Although it is not the super high-res of the retina, it displays the colors well and looks great. My only problem with it is that although the screen looks like it goes almost to the edge and the bevel is so small, there is still about 1/4" of black around the sides and top so that the image does not go all the way to the bevel. It's not a huge deal, but it would be awesome if it did.
I bought this as a 2nd monitor since I do a lot of work where I need the desktop space (writing a dissertation). This one blows the doors off of my main monitor (Asus VW266H) in terms of color, contrast, and brightness. I did not expect this to be so nice. It's very thin and light and thanks to LEDs it uses very little power (cool to the touch, front and back).
Great monitor for the price
I currently use three of these monitors for a surround setup on my gaming PC, and haven't had a single complaint yet. The resolution is good, even though it isn't 1080p (which wasn't a concern of mine). None of them have any dead or bright pixels, color is good, and refresh rate is excellent. There's nothing else that even compares in this price range.
