One of the best non gsync 1080p gaming monitors.
Posted by: BestbuyGuy from: on
This is a great gaming monitor with almost all the bells and whistles minus gsync. I have a gtx 1070 running this monitor an average 100+ frames per second on every game at 1080p ultra settings. It comes with a dual link DVI cable if your video card has that output which allows you to do 144hz. If you want sound and 144hz then you will need to purchase a separate display port cable. This is a great monitor for consoles as well as you have decreased input lag compared to a television and low gray to gray pixel shift. Max frames per second over HDMI is 60 for console gaming. To increase the hz from 60 - 144 requires a few button clicks on the monitor then adjusting your display settings on your PC. I gave it 4/5 stars because toggling your way through the menus is a chore and to get the best picture settings might require you to download some profiles from online. 144hz is absolutely needed for any type of competitive online fps like overwatch or counterstrike. All in all this monitor does everything you would need and then some. It's priced competitively for a non gsync monitor and it's the biggest screen size you would want for 1080p. Anything bigger than 24inches at 1080p will decrease the DPI and cause you to see the pixels and make text look horrible. If you're looking at something bigger than 24 inches then you should look at 1440p monitors.

Awesome Monitor! Great for Bright Colors!
Posted by: davinmotioncity from: on
I tried this monitor out in-store with the VR display. It looked wonderful in-store and it's been pretty great with my new desktop as well. Putting it side-by-side with my old laptop, I did see the differences. This monitor handles bright colors really well, but some scenery pictures and such aren't quite as detailed as my laptop. There are a few different screen modes available though which can help with finding a balance that works best for you. I also love that I can heighten and lower it very easily - great for posture! I enjoy its size, color, and display overall; great purchase!

Nice Gaming Monitor with options
Posted by: mazdaboi from: Virginia on
Ive gone through numerous monitors over the past month. Couldn't decide on exactly what I wanted or needed. I game, not a lot, but I do. Recently I upgraded my video card to push more frames per second (FPS) and coming from my first 8ms basic ACER 20" monitor I kept upgrading. AOC 23.6" IPS 5ms, and then i saw this one (as i purchased my AOC IPS monitor. The AOC was beautiful, but this ASUS has built in speakers (not very good but something) is 144hz, 1MS response time has Display Port (DP), HDMI (for console gaming as HDMI is ONLY 60hz max, highly recommend not using it for pc gaming) and DVI (if you don't have a DP cable handy). 24" gives you plenty of realestate for desktop applications, 1080 is honestly all anyone needs today for gaming. 4K would be too taxing and not many games support it.
Price is a little steep, but you get what you pay for. I've been very happy with the quality and build. You do need to modify the color/brightness settings because it looks washed out and bright off the start, but a few minutes of settings changes and its easily rectified.
Nothing to not like besides the price.

This is a very good monitor for the money. No ghosting, no lag, excellent resolution and clarity and very good color. It is true that at 144 Hz the colors initially look washed out, but this is very easy to compensate for by adjusting Gamma (1.10), Brightness (-20) and Contrast (105). This worked well for me. Also have mode set to sRGB. Gaming and video look great!

Crisp and Clean!!
Posted by: OGGamer from: on
Bought this for a new gaming rig I just built (my first build). I needed something to keep up with the speed of my rig. I felt I wouldn't get the full experience with a 60HZ 6ms response time monitor. After careful consideration and reading many reviews I chose the ASUS VG248QE which offered 144HZ and 1ms response times.
I was slightly annoyed that I would have to use HDMI temporarily, which is only capable of 60HZ, because a display port cable wasn't included with the monitor. Display port is the way to go nowadays as it's capable of 144HZ and is a much better option than DVI due to taking up much less space. While the picture with HDMI was stunning I still had to order a DP cable for around $10 to get the full effect of 144HZ.
Everything looks amazing on this monitor as it makes AAA games come to life in vivid breathtaking detail. The screen has nice ergonomic functions for your viewing comfort. And it's a very nice looking monitor.
Highly recommended if you would like to get the most out of your gaming experience and don't mind spending a little more. I caught a good sale so I'm a happy camper.
P.S. Make sure to set your display setting via Windows to 144HZ if using display port.

Best Monitor for the Price
Posted by: MCLY from: on
I am a console gamer and use this monitor primarily for first person shooters. I have Benq monitors as well and they are great, but I think this one is better. The Benq models I have are around $400 dollars, so they aren't the lower end models. I would recommend this monitor to anybody but would wait for it to go on sale. You should be able to find one for around $250.00.

You won't want to go back.

I can't find a bad thing to say about this monitor. Let's start from the top. The moment I opened the case, there were two massive styrofoam molds holding this monitor in place. After removing the molds, that were extremely tight inside the box, I had removed the monitor from the packaging. Installation was a breeze as it was drop the monitor on the base and screw in. Simple! Once I removed all the shrink wrap, I had to find the included cables at the bottom of the packaging. There wasn't anything fancy about the cable placement, they just threw it in the bottom of the package. The included cables are the stereo to monitor for external speakers, DVI-D for 60/100/120 & 144hz display and lastly, the power cable. The power and DVI-D cable are about 1m / 3ft in length, nothing special. Once I booted it up, cranked down the brightness, since it blinded me, with the easy to navigate menu buttons on the bottom right of the monitor; I was ready to change my monitor to function at 144hz. Instantly when I changed it, I was hooked! Something as moving the mouse was smoother and looked much better than the same cursor on my 60hz Vizio TV or my LG 20" monitor. Onto playing games!
I booted up CS:GO for two hours and everything was crisp. Colors were vibrant, and screen tearing was nonexistent. I then played Battlefield 4 for a couple hours as well, and everything felt smoother and provided a true gaming experience. It sounds far fetched, but once you play on this monitor, you will understand what I'm saying. The most noticeable thing during gameplay that I will never get over is how smooth everything looks. It doesn't matter if it's games or Microsoft Word, everything feels more responsive in workstation use or gaming use. The massive 24" display is amazing and has no issues swiveling, tilting or rotating up to 90 degrees. This monitor is perfection, and my only cons are that the bezels are bigger than I would personally want, but that's my opinion.
10/10, everything is extremely flawless on this monitor. I recommended it to my friend within 10 minutes of use. This monitor will be my daily driver for years to come, and I hope to pick up a second one later down the road for a triple monitor setup.

well worth the money
Posted by: ShadowStorm from: on
I was using a 32" tv for gaming on my pc, and noticed screen lag and just overall screen tearing. I looked up different monitors and chose this one based on price other reviews and just the name Asus, you know its quality. This monitor has a picture that just out of this world.. gaming k/d ratio has increased dramatically in BattleFront.. the best thing about this monitor is the 144hz just cant be beat. and the GamePlus lets you choose between 4 crosshair overlays if you don't like the one in the game... Blu-Ray movies, youtube videos, and graphics in game are uncomparable with this monitor...I plan on buying 2 more to run 3 screen setup..

Excellent for ps4 and Call of Duty
Posted by: MrBucket from: on
After reading several reviews about ghosting and 144mhz, and being thoroughly confused, i went ahead, bought the monitor, and will review to try and provide clarity to others like me. Don't worry about the 144mhz. ps4 outputs in 60hz, and using an HDMI cable, the monitor refreshes at 60hz. It will only go into 144mhz when using a DVI or the display cable. The 1ms response time is fantastic. I have poor internet. 6 down, 1 up (best offered in my neighborhood), and i still get the drop on other people. I used this monitor to replace my old 5ms Gateway LCD monitor, which is no slouch. The sound from the speakers are dismal though, barely good enough to use for watching netflix,, but I use an astro headset for gaming, so it's a moot point. Color pops, and there is no lag, no ghosting etc. It's worth the money i spent on it , $260. Also, it comes with a feature, where you can put a tiny crosshair on screen. If you play Hardcore modes in COD, like I do, it's amazing, almost cheating. EX: Outrider's Sparrow in Black Ops 3, dead accurate across the map on the crosshairs. hipfire your shotgun, without ever even thinking of ADS. Don't be scared off by people saying it's too expensive, it's not, the 1ms response time is well worth it.
As for 3d, I doesn't seem like it will work with the ps4, You seem to need to use a pc, and an nvidia 3d kit (glasses and emitter). If I'm wrong though, someone let me know on that.

Bought three for Iracing
Posted by: iracing from: North Carolina on
I can't believe the difference going from 60hz to 144hz. FYI, you have to use dvi or display port cables to reach the 144hz. HDMI will not work.
