    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.

    After seven years, one of my monitors had begun to fail and after some searching, I came across these ASUS monitors. I was hesitant at first because I didn't know anything about ASUS monitors, but the Best Buy rep assured me that unless I was going for super high-end, these would not disappoint. After limping along with one failing monitor, I was able to score these on black Friday at a whopping $179 each, way below my budget. Many others have noted that the colors are a bit "off" out of the box, but some fine tuning of color controls and you get some stunning picture quality. I myself have also made use of nVidia's control panel to further adjust the colors to something more close to what they should be. ASUS boasts the ability to use these monitors in any position you want, however they are stretching the truth just a bit since these monitors are not IPS. Turning them on their sides in vertical view gives you washed out and inverted colors. It's not terrible, if you're just using Excel or Word, you should be fine, but for someone like me doing graphics work, having any kind of incorrect colors is a bad thing. The quality is both clear and crisp. While not 4K, stepping up from seven year old LED monitors gives me a nice view of how badly everything looks on the internet due to lousy camera phone quality. Low-res video will also seem more pixelated just because everything is just so much clearer. While not IPS, the screens do have a decent range so you can view them at fairly angled positions. You begin to notice whites turning yellow as you get beyond 35-45 degree angles. Blacks could be a lot more black, they do suffer from some slight washout of the back lights, but only noticeable if you have a black background like me or during system boots. The monitors support 144Hz refresh rates, but can be adjusted lower, suiting your own personal needs. Currently, with dual monitors, my GTX970 does not support anything higher than 60Hz on a second monitor, regardless if it is plugged into the Display Port or HDMI. The GTX970 doesn't come with two DVI ports, I cannot test if it's the card or the software. However, since my gaming and most movies are shown on my main monitor running 144Hz, this was not a deal breaker. However, the second monitor plugged into the Display Port does give some extra/advanced color and visual options that do not show up in DVI or HDMI under nVidia's control panel. I believe these are if you are running the monitor as a TV. The 1ms response time is also very nice, my old monitors were 2ms (not bad for seven years old). There is an option to change the amount of "tracing" you get when things move across the screen, I notice on older games like WoW, this affects it in a negative way, so I leave it down on the factory setting of 60. There are other options I haven't even played with yet, there's all sorts of them, I would recommend doing some research on them if you get these. I have not tested the speakers with these monitors, but other reviews do make mention of them. They are not on the sides or bottom, rather behind the monitor facing left and right. What I am most glad for is not only having the audio in for using the speakers, but you also have an audio out for headphones. I run a Bluray player through HDMI on one monitor with headphones out the other side. Both my monitors are hanging on a dual arm monitor stand. It's a bit on the cheaper side, but even with these monitors being a bit heftier than what I'm used to, the stand seems to support them just fine. You don't have the bulky power blocks, everything is built into the monitor. Overall, if you have a chance to get these before they are discontinued, you won't be disappointed. They have very nice feature, nice quality and are easier on the wallet than some other monitors with similar features.

    Asus - 24" LED FHD Monitor - Black

    Posted
    Dylan

    Asus - 24" LED FHD Monitor - Black By Dylan Mohne I recently purchased the Asus 24” LED FHD Monitor that has an adjustable stand with capabilities of going to 144hz. If you don’t know what hertz are an example is 144hz=1/144 meaning for every one second, there is 144 frames drawn on the screen. The average monitor is clocked at 60 hz so you are getting more than twice the frames per second. If you are looking to play video games and wanting to step up your level, this is a monitor you should look at. I will be going over a few different aspects regarding price, picture quality, and gaming. Picture Quality For picture quality, this asus monitor is absolutely stunning! Out of the box the picture was very vivid while the monitor felt alive. Playing different games feels more crisp on this monitor while it is set to 144hz. The smoothness of the 144hz is very noticeable as everything feels faster compared to 60hz. This is by far one of the best 1080p monitors I have ever owned and you should go for this monitor if you are looking for a better picture quality. Functionality For people that are looking to pick up an entry monitor that is 144hz to play games on, this is your monitor. If you are looking to play any type of game competitively or trying to push that ladder this monitor will help you in the right direction. When you move to 144hz you can not move back to 60hz! The stand is very durable as you can move the stand very simply and turn it another direction. You can also move the stand up and down which makes it more convenient to the person. If you are taller you can move the monitor up to meet a better eye level. Price I bought this monitor during black friday when it was on sale for roughly $90 cheaper. It was one of the best investments I have made! The normal price for this monitor is $279.99. For a 144hz monitor this is still a very good monitor for the price. Final Thoughts Overall, this is a very good monitor to own even if you don’t play games and are looking for a good daily monitor to surf the internet. The picture quality is astonishing for the price and it seems very durable and has not had any issues. For people that plan on playing games competitively and want to that one up on the competition, this is your monitor that will help you get one step closer on beating your competitors.

    Excellent Monitor!!

    I bought this monitor primarily for console gaming. I wanted a monitor with low input lag and high response time and refresh rate. I mostly play FPS games so having a quick response time and low input lag is very important to me. I have been using this monitor for a couple of months now and I am very pleased with it. The picture is beautiful, and the monitor only required minor tweaking out of the box for the optimal picture settings. Colors are not washed out and are represented nicely. The LED back-lighting makes colors "pop". Aesthetically, this monitor is gorgeous. The cable management on the back of the stand is Ferrari red and the rest of the monitor is black. Overall, I am very happy with this monitor. It is exactly what I needed for gaming. I also have my computer hooked up to this monitor via the DVI input (PS4 is using the HDMI); switching between the two inputs is easy as there is a "source" button. There is a slight 3-4 seconds lag between switching inputs, but this doesn't bother me. My only complaint with this monitor has to do with the speakers. Even at 100% volume, the speakers are relatively quiet. Though I didn't buy this monitor for its speaker quality, it would have been nice to have a more powerful set of speakers. Also, there is no dedicated volume buttons, so adjusting the volume quickly is not an option. You need to enter the on-screen menu and navigate to the volume controls. Having dedicated volume buttons would have been a nice feature to have. I use a set of Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 for my computer and Skullcandy Plyr 1 for gaming, so my volume is always turned off anyway. I played around a little with the on-screen reticle overlay. It was a neat feature to have, but not something I plan on using. It was neat playing Ghosts and having the reticle on-screen allowing me to open-scope and hip-fire accurately. Also, the on-screen timer is kinda neat; this is something I will use now and again. If you are looking for an incredibly fast, low input lag, high refresh rate monitor, you really can't go wrong with this. I would not suggest using this as a primary TV though simply because of the quiet speakers and lack of volume buttons.

    Excellent for ps4 and Call of Duty

    Ok, 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.

    One of the best non gsync 1080p gaming monitors.

    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.

    Beautiful quality monitor for gaming!

    Posted
    SilentNova

    I am in love with this monitor! The image quality looks beautiful, the 144HZ is unreal and while gaming you REALLY do notice the difference between 60hz vs 144hz (night and day difference) The price is great, the 1ms response time is perfect for gaming, its great! Comes with all the necessary ports, DVI Cable (needed in order to output 144HZ, doesnt work with HDMI), HDMI Cable, and an Audio Cable (please read on as there is a major issue in regards to the audio) I only had this monitor for about a week, and i noticed an odd "STATIC NOISE" COMING FROM THE MONITOR WHILE SCROLLING WITH MY MOUSE. Furthermore, i noticed when i exceeded anything past 70 frame rate while playing a game (i.e. Destiny 2), i heard a MAJOR LOUD NOISE coming from the monitor, initially i thought my PC was giving me issues, or perhaps the monitor is just busted, nope, turns out, all you need to do is LOWER THE MONITORS SOUND VIA ITS ON-SCREEN MENU, restart the monitor and it COMPLETELY ELIMINATED BOTH ISSUES. This issue really, really caused me a lot of headache, but I'm glad i worked around it. Despite the annoyance of not being able to use this monitors speaker (by lowering the volume, it eliminated the issue, but on the other hand, i cant hear audio, which isn't all that bad because regardless most people who game on monitors use headphones so, no harm no foul) I'm in love with the image quality and how responsive the monitor is. Hope I've helped.

    Amazing Gaming Monitor

    Posted
    KyleG1A

    The single best thing about this monitor is the blazing fast 144hz refresh rate. If you're buying this monitor for any other reasons, you're looking at the wrong monitor. Pros: As I said above, the high refresh rate is the biggest plus of this monitor. This is really the only way I can describe it: imagine watching the 48FPS version of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit for the first time and translating it into a game. The only problem this brings is that you have to have the power to run games at a framerate that high. I can see a noticeable improvement with my Radeon HD 7950 in most games, but to get true 144FPS in everything you need to be boasting a GTX Titan or a 780TI (or use CrossFire/SLI). Cons: Blacks and viewing angles. Blacks often appear grey, and the viewing angle is awful; dead center is the only way to view the screen without color distortion. The viewing angle is even worse if most of the screen is covered in dark colors: unless your face is right on the monitor there is distortion along the edges of the monitor. These are the usual downsides of a TN panel. Color reproduction however is so-so; I use a configuration that boosts the saturation so I don't notice much of a problem there at all. Conclusion: If you're a gamer, get this monitor if you have the cash to shell out for it. It's a hell-of-a-lot more expensive than standard 24-inch monitors, but for the virtually non-existent input lag and response time it's worth it. Even if you can't drive 144FPS across the board, this monitor will future-proof your system if you end up getting hardware that can. As for photo/video enthusiasts: I don't know why you're even considering a TN panel monitor. Go for IPS. And as for speakers: they're the typical junk. Slightly better than your average monitor speaker, but not something you'd want for regular use.
