ASUS MX299Q Monitor Review

Perfect for laptop users


My laptop is my primary computer and needed an extra monitor for multi-tasking. The 21:9 aspect ratio allows me to have 3 windows open (2 split on the Asus, and one on the laptop monitor). Very few laptop allow dual monitors and use of the internal...

Nice Built in speakers and cool aesthetics

No VESA mount
