Asus MX299Q

 

The Asus MX299Q is a sharp-looking, 29-inch, ultra-wide monitor that delivers good overall image performance and powerful audio output.

Good audio output. Solid gray-scale and viewing-angle performance. Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)-compatible input

Middling color accuracy. Lacks USB ports. Finicky function buttons

Whether you're looking to replace your dual-monitor setup or just want more screen real estate, the Asus MX299Q ($469) offers a stylish solution at a reasonable price. This 29-inch, ultra-wide monitor boasts an Advanced High Performance In-Plane...

ASUS MX299Q Monitor Review

 

The panel does not make the monitor. As I saw in my last 21:9 monitor review, even if you have the exact same panel in two displays, a whole lot more makes the display good or bad. One might assume that all the 21:9 displays now hitting the market are...

After recently reviewing a pair of 21:9 displays I have some mixed feelings about the monitors overall. On the positive side, they seem to be excellent gaming displays. They have low lag, offer accurate colors, wide viewing angles, and a bigger...

Asus MX299Q review - Widescreen space that's ideal for multiple applications

 

An ultra-wide AH-IPS monitor that also offers stylish good looks

Stylish good looks, ultra-wide display, full sRGB coverage, excellent brightness, very good colour accuracy, largely uniform display except for one area, good price, wide range of inputs, Bang & Olufsen audio

Bottom right corner shows darkening and minor variation in brightness. Bottom third shows colour variation, on screen menus are fiddly

Not only does the Asus MX299Q offer the kind of widescreen space that’s ideal for multiple applications, the quality of the display itself is also surprisingly good. When you match that with a good built-in sound system and stylish looks, you have an...

Great product and wonderful display

 

Yes, I'd buy it again.

The screen is beautiful. It's also, light, and easy to set up. I've had it for a year now and it's been trouble free and just as bright as the day I bought it. It might not be 4K; but, it's great nonetheless.

It's not 4K. It cost more when I bought it.

Not working at all

 

Since not working, NO

Monitor can't display at all. Keep show "display port no signal" when I using HDMI or DVI cable ; Tested it under two PC with video card GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 660 Ti. Under dual screen's help, both PC/card can find this monitor and can modify the...

Was great then...

 

I am not sure if I just got a "bad egg" but when the monitor was new it was working amazing; shortly after using it (less than 300 hours) it began to "act up." I purchased this monitor when it was still relatively new to the market and now I no longer...

Really big, nice viewing angle. The speakers are not bad if you have nothing else to use. Great color and picture quality.

Well I have owned this for a little over a year, and within the first 4 months of owing this monitor it started to burn the image(s) into the screen. If Im playing a game which has a stay in place bar (i.e health bar, action bar ect.) the image will...

Great Monitor

 

The arm that connects to the stand is pushed flat in the box and requires some pulling to move it from it's initial position. I was worried that it was either broken or that I would break the monitor by pulling on it too hard, but once I got it loose I...

The ultra wide 2560x1080 resolution is great for multi-tasking. You can have multiple windows open at the same time without compromising the size of the windows ; The screen is crisp and bright

The sound isn't the greatest through line-in, but I have a separate sound system so it's not a huge issue. I haven't tried the audio through HDMI, but would assume it's the same

Good panel, poor case

 

ASUS doesn't actually manufacture the panel itself, so you can get the exact same screen with all the pros without the poor construction.Additionally, the back of the monitor doesn't seem to be compatible with third party multi-monitor stands and wall...

Excellent LCD panel. Bright, clear, with an amazing amount of work space and lots of options for managing color, etc. 2560X1080 is the way to go if you use lots of screen space when working

The buttons on the front are not mechanical in any way - just brushing them with your finger will activate them, which can be very frustrating in a tight work space. It happens alot, enough to make me wish I bought this from another manufacturer ;...
