    I picked up this monitor a week and a half ago after reading great reviews, and this would be an amazing monitor if it didn't seem that the later production runs didn't have defective TN panels. First, let's look at the GREAT things about this monitor: - 144Hz - Fast refresh rate - G-sync is *amazing* and everything people claim it is. - Colors, once calibrated, are decent (BUT... they don't stay that way) What's wrong here: Upon setting up the monitor, I noticed that the gamma was *extremely* high. Everything was washed out. No big deal, I just need to calibrate the monitor, right? So I spend an hour fiddling with the settings and finally find a color/gamma/brightness/contrast setting where the washed-out nature of the colors was acceptable, but there was still a yellow tint at the top of the monitor and the white was still so bright (even with *very low* brightness/gamma/contrast and color temp settings) that it hurt my eyes. After scouring the Internet and trying every calibration option I could find, there was no way to fix it. On top of which, the screen backlight created a white fog effect on any setting which was contributing to the wash-out effect. I was also getting significant color banding effects and pixelation on some content which was making it look terrible. The final straw was that the monitor seemed to be inconsistent and seemed to have a warm-up time (30-60 minutes - which is very long and hard to plan for) - My calibration settings would end up off every now and again. Every time I adjusted them and made it right, if the monitor sat on for a while or went to sleep, the gamma, contrast and brightness on the panel (not in the settings) would change, meaning there was no real way to calibrate the monitor consistently. A few days ago I started searching the Internet and found a decent number of people experiencing the *exact* same issues with this monitoring starting with monitors produced in the middle of last year. Asus support RMAed the monitor for several of these people and after several monitors, people reported that there was no resolution to the issue. I love Asus products, and I loved the G-sync effect (which made my games extremely fluid and easy on the eyes) but the calibration problems with this TN panel are a HUGE problem. I'm returning the monitor today and given the consistent problems others have had, I don't intend on playing monitor roulette. Back to the drawing board for a new gaming monitor. :(

    Great g-sync monitor

    This monitor is for gamers. If you don't game, forget it. Just get a IPS panel. I've been looking for a 1080p g-sync monitor for awhile. I was hesitant to order from Amazon or New Egg because of the shipping return policy. I basically didn't want to go through the hassle of shipping stuff back if defects were found. When I heard Best Buy was selling g-sync monitors, I knew this was where I was going to buy one. My monitor was perfect. I was using an old sony 3d PS3 tv as my monitor before. The leap to g-sync made a big difference. The animation in games are more fluid. I could definitely see more frames. I would get dizzy and noxious after playing Doom for an hour on my old monitor. I did not get any headaches on the Asus Rog even after playing Doom for 3 hours. So G-Sync is definitely worth it for eliminating my headaches alone. About the 1ms response time, I didn't think it mattered when playing online. I thought ping was king. However, with this monitor, I can tell the difference. When playing WOW with the same ping as before, my actions felt quicker. It just seems magical. The build quality is excellent. The only settings I changed to get a good picture from initial settings were: Brightness - 35 Color Temp - Normal Turn off DisplayPort Deep Sleep. Then I used the Windows 10 calibrate display color app afterwards. This is definitely the best monitor I have ever owned. You will not regret your purchase.

    Super nice 1080 monitor

    I have been using the same LG monitor for years at 1680x1050 maximum resolution. My old rig has served me well but I'm finding it hard to play the newest games so... time to upgrade. I have all the new parts lined up on pc parts picker but decided to pull the trigger on a new monitor before purchasing the rest. I've been doing a lot of searching for what I thought would serve me well and landed on this beauty. This is a Best Buy exclusive and it came in under the $400 price range that I decided to spend. My son just upgraded his rig with a gtx 1070 and an i5 skylake processor but no new monitor. We hooked up this monitor and cloned it with his monitor to his new system for comparison. He fell in love with it playing the first game we tried (Battlefield 1). He showed me the massive screen tearing that he gets playing fps games and you really can tell the difference in screen quality and colors with this monitor. It's also much brighter than his. Needless to say, he didn't want to give it up and played on it for the rest of the evening. What I like: 144hz 1 ms response time Gsync!! Easy height adjustment, pivot, and angle adjustments Solid base Crisp picture with good colors The red light ring on the base is a nice touch What I didn't like: 1920x1080 (actually looking for QHD) 1080 wasn't a very noticeable upgrade in resolution. It's a tn display so the viewing angles leave a lot to be desired but that's nitpicking. I'm always sitting centered on the screen when using my computer so like I said, it's not an issue for me. To date, this is the best monitor I've owned. You won't find a better gaming monitor with these specs and gsync at this low of a price! This was also a monitor that they had in-store so no shipping or waiting for it. Sweet! Buy it already!

    Great Monitor

    Posted
    FUFLP

    As a hardcore FPS gamer I am really enjoying this monitor. The screen is good, colors out of the box are better than most TN panels which typically require a lot of tweaking. Response time and Input lag feel similar to my BenQ RL2455HM which is good. The refresh rate is what really makes this monitor special, that being said most people won't notice a difference overclocking above 144hz. (myself included) One of my favorite features of the monitor is the OSD controlled by the joystick, it is like night and day tweaking settings in this monitor compared to my BenQ. Build quality is great, no defects and all features work as described. My only complaint is that the monitor is overpriced for a 1080p TN panel, although G-Sync does typically add $100 to most monitors. At the time of this review Best Buy is the only Retailer in the US selling the PG248Q. Lastly I would like to warn potential buyers that this monitor ships in it's manufacturer packaging increasing the chance of theft. I would be cautious about choosing home delivery.

    Smooth Gameplay, Terrible Colors

    I have been using an ASUS VG248QE for months before I bought this monitor. My VG24 is a 144hz with great picture quality. The main selling point for this monitor was it was G-Sync capable, in which it did deliver. If you can push the frames, 144hz with GSYNC is AMAZING. But there is only one problem I have with the ROG, and it's a BIG problem. The picture is absolutely atrocious. Compared to my VG, and considering it is made by the same company, the picture quality is flat out bad. The only way I can describe it is that on the ROG, the picture quality is dull. The color on my VG just *pops* more, if that makes sense. Black on the ROG is not really black, the color just isn't deep enough. I've tried for over a month to accept the color scheme, after weeks of messing with settings, and I just can't get over it. As much as I wanted to love this monitor for how smooth gameplay is, I just couldn't love it, and trust me, I really tried. Maybe my VG spoiled me, and if I never had it next to this one, I probably wouldn't ever had noticed, but it's there and for the price I paid for this monitor, the atrocious colors are simply unacceptable. I am returning this monitor this weekend, and while I will miss the smoothness, I still want my games to look good. It's a bittersweet trade-off, but I expect quality when I pay $500 dollars, especially when it cost 2x as much as my VG24.

    Buttery Smooth Gameplay

    Months ago, even though I was achieving 60 frames per second in all of my games, I still wasn't satisfied. When I moved the camera around my character in an RPG, the background looked jarring. When turning quickly in first person shooters, it was hard to make out enemies. I learned that there were monitors on the market that would let you have frame rates higher than 60 frames per second and so I bought the PG248Q after doing some research. It was a great decision. The difference between a 60Hz monitor and a 144Hz monitor is insane. When either I'm moving or someone else is moving, it feels much more lifelike. Although the monitor does let you overclock it, my screen looks a little pixelated at 180Hz so I keep it at 144Hz. The colors look very good for a TN panel (but still nothing on an IPS) and the 24 inch display is actually a little larger than I would like since I sit less than three feet away from the screen normally. With a resolution of 1080p, my GTX 1080 easily takes advantage of the high refresh rate, getting the full 144 frames per second in games. To take full advantage of this monitor, you should be using it with a pc that has an Nvidia card to use G-Sync. If you're looking for a monitor for your PlayStation, Xbox, or pc with an AMD card, I'd pass on this one since the reason it costs this much is because of the 144Hz and the G-Sync. So yeah. Let your Nvidia card use this and enjoy some really beautiful gameplay.

    Perfect for any competitive gamer wanting an edge. Once you game at 144hz+ with 1ms gtg response time, 60hz isn't acceptable anymore. Everything seems so responsive and fluid. Monitor comes with a nice sturdy stand that's very adjustable. Has good appeal as well. The colors need tweaking out the box. After that the colors aren't washed out. Almost comparable to my IPS panel. The viewing angles are pretty horrible, but this doesn't effect gaming since your head on with the display. G-sync is cool and nice for games like witcher and such, but I have it turned off for my competitive gaming to reduce input lag. I got this monitor on sale for 349.99. The price is a little steep if you can't grab it on sale. I'd still recommend this monitor however.

    Great monitor and great price (When it's on sale)

    I picked up this monitor in store on Friday the 18th and used it that night and the following morning. The Good: It's blazing fast and smooth with it's high refresh rate, gsync and its 1ms responce time. At 1080p it's a great match for my GTX1070. I played a few games of Overwatch and CS:GO on it at 180hz and it felt amazing. It's a TN panel so colors aren't going to be as great as an IPS but out of the box the colors are pretty darn good for a TN. In game and during use, it's hardly an issue. The pro's definitely outweigh the con's in this regard. The Bad: The reason I'm giving this monitor 4 stars is because my unit ended up being defective (mildly) and i had to exchange it. Not a huge deal breaker but still pretty annoying(not something you expect to have to do when spending $350-$450 on a monitor, but stuff happens). It had a faint gray horizontal line across the top third of the screen that appeared only when using DisplayPort (the only input that allows for the high refresh rate and gsync). The issue didn't show up on HDMI. So the issue wasn't purely panel damage. I enjoyed it while I had it despite the line issue, and am looking forward to getting my replacement in 2 days.
