Asus VG248QE


The Asus VG248QE is a 24-inch gaming monitor featuring a 144Hz refresh rate, a speedy pixel response, and a highly adjustable stand. It's a good performer but could use a few more gamer-centric features.

Fast pixel response. 144Hz refresh rate. Ergonomic stand

Narrow viewing angles. 3D gear not included. No USB ports

Ask any hardcore gamer what matters most and nine out of 10 times you'll get a one-word answer—speed. It's no secret that fast frame rates not only give you smoother game play but they can also give you an edge over those unfortunate souls who have to...

Asus VG248QE: A 24-Inch, 144 Hz Gaming Monitor Under $300


Every performance-oriented gaming rig needs a speedy display to keep up with cutting-edge GPUs. Asus delivers up to 144 Hz with its VG248QE 24-inch TN-based monitor. Is its display performance as impressive as the company's sub-$300 price tag?

Just Do It


So you can go ahead and add this to your cart now... The refresh rate is noticeable everywhere. Windows animations, fast typing feels like butter (especially in Office 2013 with those improved animations), Gaming is a whole new world. I see people...

Stop thinking. Just do it. I bought this monitor with 0 regrets whatsoever. On sale, full price.... just buy it ; 144Hz refresh rate is unreal. Whoever says 60Hz to 144Hz makes little to no difference must think no different of a Fiat to a Ferrari....

To me, this monitor blissfully perfect. I noticed with crumby pictures you will notice the "sharpness" setting as you change it in the monitors settings. This is particularly noticeable with Windows 8.1 default background (the orange-yellow boxes)....

Great value


Stand is vesa-mounted, so when you remove the stand to mount to a monitor mounting mechanism, you have a universally compatible stand good for most monitors ; Stand is *very* nice, includes cable management and has a built-in swivel mechanism, as well...

Monitor rotation doesn't appear to be lockable. Not very noticeable if this is your only monitor, but putting two of them next to each other is nearly impossible to align perfectly ; Includes speakers. I'd rather not pay for them, and I certainly won't...

Good for FPS gaming.


If you want a monitor for competitive FPS gaming this is great, for slower paced or more casual gaming get a nice IPS panel.

This does exactly what it promises with no ghosting and zero input lag

The colours out of the box are terrible, even after calibration they're still not great and it has typical bad TN viewing angles

Consumer review by:

Excellent monitor


Great colors at 144hz, even compared to dell IPS as the second monitor. 24" good gaming size. Lightboost makes colors very washed out. I went back to 144hz with no lightboost after a week of trying it. Any game you play where fps is >60 hz you will...

High refresh rate, good colors, decent user interface, nvidia lightboost works if desired

nvidia lightboost very washed out if utilized

Gaming Monitor


To utilize this monitor, you must use a DL-DVI cable (provided with monitor) OR a display port cable. (not-provided)

As a heavy gamer, I love this monitor. 144Hz is amazing. The difference is very clear over a 60Hz 1ms monitor ; Make sure you tell your graphics card in the software (Nvidia Control Panel), (Intel Graphics Control), or (Catalyst Control Center) to use...

Colors are exceptionally bad, even for a TN panel. Like everyone else said, turn the brightness down. I run ; Brightness 42 ; Contrast: 75 ; Saturation: 40 ; Normal Color Temp ; Natural Skin Tone ; ASCR Off ; Lightboost Hacked to be enabled to 2D Mode....

Excellent gaming monitor


My recommended settings in OSD: Brightness 20% Contrast 80% RGB all 100% Tracefree 80% for Nvidia control panel color settings Brightness 40% Contrast 50% digital vibrance 60% you may need to mess around in your windows color management and disable any...

Overall its a great gaming monitor. By now I had it for several months and I'm simply loving it, its everything I expected from a monitor of this sort. For general windows usage the 144hz refresh + 1ms response time definitely improve the experience...

It was a pain in the A to get the brightness and contrast right ratio right, but once you dial it in its really hard to complain about the quality. Now the main con I have with this monitor is the vertical viewing angle. I have a slightly more elevated...

Good monitor for the price


Colors are bright. Only thing I found not outstanding is: using HDMI cable and speakers are not loud enough
