    -Quality Control-
    I bought three of this exact monitor. I got three monitors with three very different looking colors, particularly with three very different depths of black. I expected the colors to be inaccurate- just about every review brings that up, but I (incorrectly) assumed three of the same monitor would be inaccurate in exactly the same way. I think the problem is each has a slightly different backlight intensity, and this cannot be fixed by any brightness/contrast/gamma settings. They don’t look the same and they will never be identical. This makes me sad. I’m taking one star off for this- yeah 3 monitors is a small sample size, but, well, they sure aren’t cherry-picking the production line.
    Update: Of the three of these monitors I purchased, two of them had dead pixels. I have gone through the lengthy process of exchanging both (amazon’s service was lovely, newegg on the other hand was quite slow in comparison, and newegg makes you send the product back before they ship you the replacement, whereas amazon just shipped me a new monitor instantly and told me to send the old one back by the end of the month) and have finally gotten three functioning monitors. However… I’m just not very satisfied with the quality of these monitors. I never knew what “bad colors” before buying these monitors, and I thought that it was only important to people who work in photography, or the snobby “has to be perfect” crowd. I figured, “bad colors!? I don’t care about that”. I was wrong. Everything just looks so washed out and pale, and there really is an obscene amount of lightbleed around the edges. Sometimes I see image retention artifacts on these monitors! If I weren’t so lazy I would return these monitors and try out the BenQ model that supports 2D lightboost. My previous monitors lasted me 6 years, and I only upgraded because I wanted higher framerates and lightboost… but I don’t see myself keeping these monitors for 6 years. Full disclosure, the room where I keep these monitors is rather cold (it’s 12C right now) and the display is definitely adversely affected by the cold, things get a bit better when they warm up. Maybe all my complaints will be resolved in the summer when the weather is hot. My previous monitors had no issues unless the temperature fell below 0C.

    My computer only has two DVI inputs, one displayport, and one hdmi port. This monitor comes with a rather short DVI cable. In my attempts to hook up the third monitor with stuff I had laying around the house, I discovered the following: The HDMI port will not carry signals higher than 60Hz. I tried using a DVI to HDMI adapter, but since my GPU doesn’t accept higher than 60Hz over HDMI, I used HDMI to displayport. This did not allow me to go higher than 60Hz. The fault could have either been the HDMI cable itself, or one of the adapters I used. I ended up having to buy a displayport cable and it carries up to 144Hz perfectly fine. tl;dr: You should not buy this monitor unless you have DVI or displayport on your PC. The DVI cable it comes with is on the shorter side.

    I cannot, and therefore will not, talk about screen quality because I am not knowledgeable enough. I will say that there is a little bit of motion-ghosting, but I have never seen a monitor that doesn’t have a little ghosting.

    -High refresh rate 120Hz/144Hz-
    I love it. It’s gorgeous, it’s significantly better than 60Hz, and very much worth buying into. Use this to watch videos in 144FPS- it fixes video stuttering (how on earth the general population still thinks 24fps is acceptable for video is beyond my comprehension) but will introduce some other artifacts. It’s a trade off… personally I prefer perfect visual fluidity with an artifact here and there vs every single second looking like garbage because 24FPS.
    Update: SVP works better at 60Hz than at 120Hz or higher. Consistent framerates are much more important than high framerates- if you can’t get a stable 120FPS, the frequent changing of the framerate will be a lot more annoying than a consistent 60FPS. SVP works by generating new frames by averaging two existing frames. The generated frame is then inserted between the two existing frames. SVP’s engine does this very well for 60Hz/FPS displays where the source video is 24FPS, however its success is limited at 120FPS. Some scenes look amazing. Others don’t. While the entire video is technically 120FPS, the extra generated frames required to get to 120FPS may not be different enough (or accurate enough) to translate into worthwhile data, and the result is a perceived inconsistent framerate. If your source video was captured in 60FPS, however, I suspect SVP will succeed in rendering it at 120FPS.

    This is a godsend. It only supports 100Hz-120Hz, but 120Hz with lightboost is vastly superior to 144Hz without. Use google chrome to view this page, once without lightboost, once with (firefox can’t maintain 120fps and IE doesn’t seem to support 120fps). It’s a bit hard to explain, but I’ll try: This monitor has a pixel response time of 2ms (the advertised 1ms is false- never trust manufacturer specs, look for monitor benchmarks). Pixel response is how long it takes for a pixel to receive a command and change colors. 2ms is incredibly fast, but it still is not an instantaneous change. When an object is moving on your screen very fast, the pixels can only update no faster than once every 2ms and what ends up happening is motion blur; an object appears blurry because the pixels it was just on haven’t fully changed to reflect it is no longer there, and the pixels it is on haven’t fully changed to reflect that it IS there. Enter LightBoost: LightBoost turns off the backlight in between screen refreshes, and the end result is that the backlight is only on AFTER the pixels have fully changed. Without the backlight on, there is no light to carry information to your eyes. So in effect, LightBoost works by not transmitting incomplete data. The only light that ever enters your eyes contains complete images, you don’t see the 2ms of pixel transitioning from one color to another. The end result is mind blowing*, and I am SO HAPPY that I accidentally bought a monitor that happens to support this LightBoost feature- if you’re thinking of buying a 120Hz-144Hz monitor, either get this one or another one that you can verify supports LightBoost! LightBoost is not a feature that you can just turn on, it has to be enabled by third party tools and might only work for nvidia cards, I’m not sure… I just know that it’s used to help nvidia 3Dvision look better in some way, so using it for regular 2D isn’t strictly a supported feature- but the 3D restriction is completely arbitrary. Read more about it, and download the tool for unlocking 2D LightBoost here**:
    *I haven’t used a CRT in years, OK!?
    **I suppose I should put up a warning here: if you have epilepsy, know that this feature is blinking the monitor backlight, REALLY, REALLY FAST. This also reportedly causes eyestrain and other discomforts for certain people. I get eyestrain looking at a normal monitor, and I find that gunnar optiks glasses really help- maybe they’ll work for you if you find LightBoost causing discomfort.

    It’s good I guess, though I don’t really know why they have the base swivel limited when it could have easily been designed to pivot 360 degrees- perhaps so the cables aren’t being tugged on, but I’d rather have that than have to worry about centering a disc I can’t see, but I never move my monitors or change orientation so it doesn’t really bother me. The adjustable height is nice.

    This is a monitor. There is no monitor in the history of the universe that is paired with good speakers. I can’t imagine why anyone would choose to use them, but they’re there should you need them. If you don’t own speakers, they’re better than no sound at all. I saw some reviews complaining that the speakers on this are poor. No, the only thing poor here is your IQ. That’s like complaining about the poor performance of an integrated GPU or audio card.

    This monitor is good if you require only 1080p and for gaming and editing. But you instead get a 27-inch 2k 144hz monitor at same price. They can be way better compared with it and better value for money.

    edito : al instalar drivers Nvidia penultimos por lo visto dejo de funcionar el displayport de mi pc por eso no lo detectaba. me di cuenta al ver que en dispositivos de sistema habian dos dispositivos sin drivers. .. cosa rara en mi . vi había nueva actualizacion drivers nvidia y ya se soluciono problema. Lo.que pasa que ya tenia un viewsonic nuevo que tampoco detectaba el displayport y por eso sospeche que algo oasaba en portatil. y por eso descubri no era probkema del.asus. la unica pega que tenia eran altavoces se oian muy poco y con viewsonic bastante mas fuerte y por eso me quede con viewsonic.
    Si habeis leido alguna opinión de otro cliente, yo no di mucha credibilidad pero va y me ha pasado a mi también. Ayer lo recogí y lo puse por displayport para aprovechar los 144hz, ya que hdmi solo soporta 60. Mi sorpresa la mia que hoy no va ni a la de tres el displayport pone sin señal. Y el cable también fue recogido a la vez que el monitor y tiene un dia de vida por lo que la opinion que leí que se fastidiaba el displayport al breve de tenerlo es cierto. No hay manera de que vuelva a funcionar, algun defecto de fábrica tiene. Y encima voy a pedir uno de reemplazo y me dicen que ya no les queda , cosa que no creo ya que veo que se vende con otro enlace mismo modelo por amazon también pero ha subido de precio. Pienso que tenian una remesa con algunos defectuosos y me ha tocado a mi. Ahora me toca buscar otro monitor decente ya no me fio de este modelo encima no me lo quieren mandar de reemplazo porque ha subido de precio. Lo siento por ASUS iba muy bien ayer pero al dia se fastidió Displayport. De momento voy tirando con HDMI hasta que lo devuelva, voy a ir mirando otras marcas a vez, desde luego descarto ASUS.,,, y mira que e sabe mal porque tnego el portatil ASUS ROG STRIX y me salio muy bien de precio este año pasado en AMAZON y es una pasada .

    En su día allá por 2017 adquirimos dos de estos monitores de 24 pulgadas, funcionan a 144Hz a 1080p lo cual está genial para juego ocasional y trabajo, el panel que tienen es de bastante calidad, además contaban con la tecnología NVIDIA 3D Vision.

    La cuestión y como ya me ha pasado más de una vez con el fabricante y ensamblador ASUS, es que me veo obligado a mencionar que tienen un servicio de soporte y postventa nefasto (desde mi punto de vista). Me reemplazaron 2 veces los monitores, incluso en 2018 compré un tercer monitor porque uno de los dos empezó a presentar artefactos entre otros problemas (tuve que grabar hasta videos de como aparecía una leve linea horizontal que apenas se veía y el soporte técnico dudaba en hasta si creerme) tras varias semanas de lucha por fin me cambiaron el monitor y sorpresa, el de reemplazo vino mal también… La cosa es que entre reemplazos de Amazon y ASUS creo que por mis manos han pasado ya 4 monitores de este tipo por lo menos.

    Además de esto, yo no se cual es el problema con ASUS, pero siempre, cuando recién acaba su garantía las cosas vuelven a romperse… podemos llamarlo obsolescencia programada o calidad mediocre, no quiero entrar en debates, pero estamos hablando de un monitor que en su día rondaba los 250-300€, y lo peor es que esto me ha pasado con GPUs, portátiles, monitores… por suerte pude arreglármelas esta vez yo mismo para reparar uno de ellos y todavía funcionan los dos perfectamente, pero vaya tela.

    Siento que tuve mala suerte, lo admito. Eso, o los primeros monitores tenían fallas que luego corrigieron en futuras unidades, aunque lo cierto es que he utilizado muchos años estos monitores como principales metiendo más de 12 horas al día de trabajo y ocio, por lo que considero que están más que amortizados.

    Por suerte hoy día hay mejores opciones, aunque si el precio es bajo es interesante si no necesitas nada mejor… en mi caso, y después de las malas experiencias con el servicio técnico de ASUS, no volvería a adquirir este producto.

    Since Amazon lumps multiple models together on one review list, and search results eliminate the section which identifies which model is being reviewed:
    This is for the ASUS VG248QE 24″ Full HD 1920×1080 144Hz 1ms HDMI Gaming Monitor. It also has Display Port (DP) and DVI-D Dual Link (although I thought it is DVI-I Dual Link, but I don’t want to unhook the cable to verify, so I’ll go with the listing details).

    “Last purchased Feb 2, 2014, Style: 24″ FHD 1ms 144Hz Height Adjustable | Pattern Name: Gaming Monitor”

    After owning this monitor for nearly NINE YEARS, I am still very pleased by it. Overall, there is a lot to like, and not much to dislike about this monitor. I primarily use it for gaming, working, and other typical computer use. The image is crisp, the colors are vivid, the blacks are deep, and can be made even deeper using ASCR, there is barely any backlight bleeding, ZERO dead pixels (no green, black, or bright pixels – nothing at all wrong with the image), fast 1ms response time, high 144hz refresh rate – there really is very much to like. (Other than something I did – my own fault – to slightly damage the surface with a sharp object one time about 7 years ago) the monitor is visually and cosmetically flawless.

    I only have two very small complaints after almost a decade of constant use:

    1. The frame on the top is just barely starting to lift off the top in a short portion of the middle, and occasionally allows a bit of the backlight to shine through – but even this issue, I think, is going away after I have worked on pushing the frame back in place and it seems to no longer have the issue anymore. It might also have to do with temperature differences due to changing seasons resulting in slight expanding or contracting of the material. Really not a big deal, and almost not worth mentioning, but I want to give an honest, fair, and complete review.

    2. The height adjustment has recently (within the last year or so – i.e. after about 8 years of use) started to lose its ability to hold the monitor at its position. However, this comes with three pertinent caveats:
    – First, my wife and daughter very often use my computer when I am away and move the monitor down, and then I have to move it back up when I get back, so it experiences a lot of wear and tear.
    – Second, I have my very heavy Logitech gaming headset conveniently hanging on the back of the monitor (because it has such a perfectly shaped section which, although probably not designed for this, perfectly holds my headset in place) which significantly adds to the overall weight of the monitor hanging on the height-adjustment mechanism.
    – Third, even with the problem existing, by moving the monitor to the desired position and holding it in place for a few moments, it will typically hold its position, even with the heavy headset hanging on the back.

    So, that’s it. No other cons. I haven’t read many of the other reviews, but I did see something about color issues: this is fairly easily addressable via monitor settings, and if needed, Nvidia Control Center settings (or the equivalent AMD settings).

    Also, if you have any issues with Ghosting, I suggest adjusting your Trace Free setting to either 60 or 80. I advise not using 100, as that seems to overcorrect the issue and introduce inverse ghosting, if I recall correctly from previous testing. Setting it too low (i.e. 40 or below) doesn’t seem to correct it enough, but it could work for some people.

    The only reason I am shopping around for another monitor at this point is because my wife’s monitor (different brand/model) died and so I am giving her this monitor. Otherwise, I would plan to just keep using this monitor for years to come.

    I highly recommend buying this monitor.

    Purchased this monitor for my daughter for her new pc. The monitor seems to perform and have a lot of the expected features of a modern gaming monitor. It’s a competent IPS display with a 165hz refresh rate and support for AMD Freesync and Nvidia Gsync (although the monitor doesn’t seem to be validated on Nvidia’s list of Gsync compatible monitors). It offers smooth, stutter and tear free motion during the games I’ve played. For the price, it’s proven to be very capable.

    The colors appear very vibrant and, provides a host of presets and color options to get the ideal viewing experience. Nothing seemed too dark,dull or washed out or otherwise off during my usage.

    I will say that there does seem to be a pronounced amount of backlight bleed or IPS glow coming from this monitor. It’s not at all noticeable in normal lighting conditions, and only really stands out when the screen is all black during a game. The other blemish was that the monitor seems to have shipped with 2 dead pixels. I didn’t notice them at all until i did a screen test where i noticed these small specs that didn’t go away. I thought they were a part of my daughters wallpaper art.

    Screen quality aside, I’d say it’s a very capable monitor if you can get it on sale.

    UPDATE: I am happy to report that what looked like dead pixels may have actually been just stuck pixels. I conducted the screen test again, and the dark dots were no longer present! This does not change the Overall rating that I gave the monitor because it was still an obnoxious issue to deal with and took a few weeks to sort itself out.

    mis componentes son gama de entrada pero con una grafica gtx 1650 super consigue la resolucion 1080p a 144 hrz y es un gran cambio ya qr yo vengo de una pantalla 720p a 60hrz la verdad me encanto igual ya sea nvidia o amd le puedes modificar los colores a tu gusto, a lo mejor de ahi que la gente opine diferente y depende a lo que quieras jugar, pero para mi fue una gran compra no e tenido ningun problema al usarlo y recuerda si quieres llegar a la mejor tasa de refresco ya sea 144hz o 165hz necesitas si o si el display port que algo qur agradezco es que venga el monitor con display port y hdmi
