5 out of 5 eggsAmazing monitor, especially for the price.

Pros: - Obviously the main feature of this monitor, the 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG response time. Even when just using the desktop it's pretty noticeable, dragging windows and the mouse around looks super smooth. Nothing looks choppy and headache inducing anymore. Gaming looks even better, everything looks surreal and smooth.
- Vibrant and crisp colors (once you configure them), which impressed me considering this is of course a TN panel. (NOTE: don't get this monitor if you're looking for good color accuracy for professional photo editing and other things like that)
- The little cable management hook in the back is actually pretty helpful for keeping a clean look.
- Easily slides up and down without force, same with tilting and pivoting.
- Good build quality with attention to detail.
- Responsive buttons which actually click, none of that awful touch sensitive stuff. They're also on the underside of the monitor bezel, so no fingerprint marks and distracting LEDs while gaming or during general use.
- Side to side viewing angles are actually quite good for a TN panel, which is useful for Eyefinity or Surround setups.

Cons: - Included power cable and DVI cable are incredibly short. This wasn't necessarily a con for me but it may be for some, so keep that in mind.
- As everyone else has said, this isn't a plug and play monitor. You'll need to go to your Nvidia/AMD graphics control panel and set this monitor to 144Hz, it will be 60Hz the first time you plug it in. Also the colors are pretty horrid out of the box, but this is easily fixed with some adjustments (small tutorial in "Other Thoughts")
- Poor up and down viewing angles, though it is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Try to keep the monitor center to where you are looking at it from. Moving your head around a little won't make much of a difference so you don't have to sit dead still.
- Some dithering is rarely noticeable in some situations, but only if I really focus on it. Again, this is a TN panel so no eggs deducted.

Other Thoughts: Overall a fantastic monitor, especially for the price. I downgraded from a 27" monitor I've had for about a year, and I don't regret it one bit. 24" is the perfect size and it has definitely helped with my eye strain, not to mention the incredible fluidity. The colors may seem a bit strange at first but they don't look bad in my opinion; you should adjust to them quickly.


Color settings:

Splendid mode: Theater
Brightness: 90 (adjust this to your liking, I have it very high because theater mode can be dark at times)
Contrast: 80
Saturation: 50
Color temp: User Mode -
Red - 96
Green - 94
Blue - 88

Skin tone: Reddish
Smart View: Off
Sharpness: 50
Trace Free: 60

Then Google "Reddit glorious VG248QE" and click the first link. There should be a download link in the post to an ICC profile, download that and save it to your desktop. Next, search for "Color Management" which should be found in the control panel and open it. There should be 3 tabs at the top, "Devices", "All Profiles", and "Advanced". Click on "All Profiles". Look towards the bottom for an "Add" button and click that. Find the ICC profile you downloaded on your desktop, select it, and click add. Next download a program called "DisplayProfile.exe". Once you're done downloading that, open it and find the ICC profile titled "asus_vg248qe_svet" and click it. You should be done from there.

I went with theater mode because it really helps bring out those vibrant and dark colors, but you could also try it with standard mode.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Great refresh rate, colors, dark blacks for an LCD.

Cons: Poor viewing angle, especially vertically. G-sync is unavailable for this monitor due to chips not being manufactured anymore (and those produced were all bought by modders selling this monitor with them pre-installed for a huge markup).

Other Thoughts: This monitor is phenomenal for gaming and has been one of the best choices at 1920x1080 for a long time.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible!

Pros: * Everything

Cons: * Nothing

Other Thoughts: * The experience of 144Hz is incredible, coming from 60Hz. You must set your desktop preferences to USE 144Hz - the monitor does not auto select this for you. You must also use either a dual-link DVI cable (included), or a DisplayPort cable to link this monitor and run 144Hz.
* People claiming there is no difference between this and a regular monitor likely did not change the refresh rate to 144Hz. There is a CLEAR difference, and it is incredible for gaming. Much easier on your eyes as well.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for the buck

Pros: 1. Build quality is really nice and sturdy
2. 144hz with tons of optional features like G-sync MOD, 3D vision
3. It has a speaker (although not that great but its better when you go out with you friends lan party you have everything in one monitor)
4. The monitor base is a swivel type so you can turn the monitor side with lifting it

Cons: 1. The colors but I already know that prior purchasing this
2. The power cord is so short I find it hard to swivel it around or tilt it because the cord is so short.
3. The monitor is Heavy compare to other ASUS monitor that I have used.

Other Thoughts: Wish they have provided a long power cord It is really short, nothing much I can say about it I am really please to have this monitor for my FPS gaming really see a difference on a 60hz monitor. I you have a money to spare get this monitor you wont be disappointed.

Pros: Big, Cheap, and fast refresh.

Cons: Bright...extremely bright out of the box, to the point it blinds you if you're not in a brightly lit area.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Monitor

Pros: - Possibility of G-Sync modification
- Low input lag
- Very high response time with LightBoost
- Includes speakers

Cons: - Horrific colors even for a TN monitor
- Impossible to accurately calibrate grayscale due to dithering
- Very low contrast ratio & very high black point level
- Speakers pick up coil whine and are of terribly low quality
- There are many non-functional settings in this monitor's service menu
- Very bad calibration controls for a monitor with such bad colors

Other Thoughts: - This monitor is PURELY for highly competitive online MultiPlayer video gaming where graphics is completely disregarded. It is not meant for those who like to enjoy eye-candy in video games.
- Please don't be fooled by ASUS claims that you can download an ICC profile to achieve a better image quality. You may achieve somewhat better accuracy with a generic ICC profile, but you will need to buy at least i1Display Pro or ColorMunki Display to get a semi-bearable picture. Each monitor unit needs its own calibration. An ICC profile made for another unit may actually worsen your unit's image quality.
- No color accuracy improvement will improve the actual perception of colors on this monitor due to incredibly high black point level and incredibly low contrast ratio.
- There are better TN monitors out there, so please do not limit yourself to this model. Sure, a TN screen is a TN screen, not meant for photography and has plenty of disadvantages such as gamma shift and uniformity, but there are great TN monitors out there too. This isn't one of them! AVOID at all costs if you like videogame graphics!!!
- I ended up hating this monitor and switched to Eizo Foris FG2421, which outperformed this monitor in every single way, except for maybe input lag.

5 out of 5 eggsReview for ASUS VG248QE

Pros: This monitor has a great refresh rate obviously but also the images are impossibly clear. Very sharp and colorful. Not what one would expect from TN panel. Very impressed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Volume is a bit annoying to navigate without a remote. Have to go through the entire menu to get to it. Not a very big deal for me though as I have 2.1 speakers that I use.
