5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor!

Pros: Amazing monitor, colors are good, and the 144Hz refresh rate is really good, not to mention the response time. I also love the 3d swiveling, easy to adjust. Great price, too. Sound was good, despite what others have said.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsReceived Broken

Pros: The stand seemed sturdy and was easy to adjust.

Cons: It was broken either before or during shipping. The box was beat up pretty good. Pretty sure the monitor wasn't new also. Didn't have any protective film on the shiny plastic frame as usual. Fingerprints on both the screen and base.

Other Thoughts: Maybe not Neweggs fault. On hold waiting for customer service currently.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read about your new ASUS LCD arriving with damage. If the outside of the packaging was damaged along with the LCD, it more than likely happened during shipping. Since it was shipped from Newegg's warehouse, they should be able to provide you with a new replacement. If you have any questions or inquiries regarding your manufactures warranty, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150288862.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

Best regards,
Jolene

5 out of 5 eggsCrisis averted

Pros: This is just another update. My DisplayPort wasn't bad after all. I just needed to power cycle the display for several minutes. Thanks for the feedback, Jolene!

Cons: None so far, as long as this DisplayPort issue does act up again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Visuals, Poor Audio

Pros: The option to use 144Hz refresh rate

The design of the monitor itself is aesthetically pleasing

Having speakers is sort of a plus...I'll get into that in a second

Cons: The color is very washed out the way it comes from Asus

The speakers suck and are very quiet when they work like they should.

Other Thoughts: The monitor makes an awful buzzing noise in games. If I plug headphones into my PC so all the noise comes out of my headphones, the monitor still buzzes. If I pull the 3.5mm audio cord out of the monitor, the noise stops. Also, if I turn the monitor volume to 0 it goes away. But again, lots of hassle for a product I paid around $300 for.

So I spent this much on a monitor and have to buy separate speakers too. After a quick google search, I found that this seems to be a pretty common problem, which is too bad.

The washed out colors on the other hand, CAN be fixed by getting an ICC profile from the web, a quick google search will yield good results.

Other than the problem I could fix, and the one I've band-aided the monitor is pretty good. Would I recommend it? Only if your budget allows for a decent set of desktop speakers to go with it.

5 out of 5 eggsAn awesome upgrade

Pros: 144hz refresh rate, adjustable, comes with DisplayPort support... This monitor is just sweet. Out of the box some setting tweaks are needed, but the screen is amazing for gaming. Not just PC gaming either. Plugged my PS3 up to the monitor and have been having a ball with GT6.

Cons: As some have mentioned already, darks and brights are a bit... Lacking. Also, while TraceFree does make things look nicer, when turned up it does cause some weird ghosting effects on some games. Finally, HDMI is NOT capable of anything above 60hz. Fine for console games, but for those who want more, you probably wanna hook your video card up to either DisplayPort or DVI.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tested: 3D (those nVidia kits are TOO expensive right now... Also, seeing that you need a kit for 3D just for PC, I doubt 3D will work with console games using an HDMI to DVI converter.)

My settings for those who are curious:
Splendid: Standard Mode
Brightness: 35
Contrast: 80
Color Temp: User Mode - R: 96; G:94; B:88
Smart View: Off
TraceFree: 40
ECO Mode: Off

1 out of 5 eggsDamaged out of box

Pros: 144hz, movement is very smooth with movies and games that have the framerate.

Cons: Damaged out of box, a line of dead/discolored pixels running from top to bottom. I contacted ASUS support, but they would not even listen to my issue, say I should return it instead of contacting them. That means $30 to ship it back on top of the original cost, for a defective unit.

In addition, the colors are washed out and the brightness seems off. It takes a lot of tweaking to make it look decent.

Other Thoughts: One of the reasons I went with ASUS was because I heard they had excellent customer support and I thought they would cover issues like this. If you decide to get one, I recommend going with a store with a local location so that if you end up with a defective unit, you can easily return it without the shipping charges.
It doesn't seem right for customers to eat the cost of shipping back defective merchandise.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Whompy,

Thank you for your purchase of an ASUS LCD display. I do apologize for the unfortunate damages you received your LCD with. If it was was received like that upon opening the box, New Egg is held accountable for those damages, as it was shipped to you from their warehouse. Your manufactures warranty only covers hardware and software related issues. I do apologize again for this negative experience. I wish Newegg could have helped you with the return shipping fee's too, however ever company is different. If you ever have any inquires or questions about an ASUS product feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N150266587.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

Best regards,

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor But...

Pros: Great monitor overall, I really do love it.

Much better image quality than my old Asus 60hz 1080p monitor, which I truly wasn't expecting considering that this one is the same resolution.

The 144hz refresh rate, plus the very low response time; make this monitor amazingly smooth on the eyes, as the movement on the screen is so fluid. I don't think I can ever go back to 60hz refresh rate!

Cons: Sadly I will have to give three stars instead of five, because mines has a really annoying red dead pixel close to the center of the screen. It didn't have it when I first opened the monitor, then a few days later it just came out of nowhere.

I really hate this, and I wasn't able to RMA because I haven't had the time. So I'll have to take this up with Asus.

Other Thoughts: Dead pixels are a pain!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am very happy to read that you are overall happy with your ASUS LCD, besides the fact of the red pixel. For this particular model series, in order to qualify for a dead pixel RMA, there would have to be 3 or more pixels present on the screen. I would be more than happy to further discuss ASUS's RMA process with you. Feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N150266671.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best regards,
Jolene

1 out of 5 eggsASUS VG248QE (QUALITY ERROR)

Pros: 144 Hz is absolutely incredible.
Picture is great.
Almost zero motion blur.
One heavy draw back however..
Use a DVI cable to keep your 144Hz if your DisplayPort is bust.

Cons: Be ready to RMA.. (I RMA'd one of my two and am looking to re-RMA the first, as well as RMA'ing the second one.)
I have used three different brand names of DisplayPort cable providers, and I have recently made the switch from an EVGA 780 Ti to DUAL EVGA 980 FTW edition graphics cards, the only thing that remained the same were the monitors I purchased. (I bought two of these sadly) Both monitors I have (one was sent back on an RMA) have the same issue, the Display Port is poorly made. As stated, I've tried three different brand displayport cables, as well as display port 1.1 and 1.2 and nothing seems to work right. Conclusion being after my troubleshooting that it is the monitor itself. Poor quality control which is sad because I have been a long time fan of ASUS for their motherboards. But two different monitors with the same results, as well as many others reviewing the same results as I have encountered.. Even after they RMA"d one it came back and within several weeks began doing the same thing.

Other Thoughts: Get used to seeing this............ *headache*

Manufacturer Response:

Dear MatthewTheGreat,

I do apologize for the inconveniences your two ASUS VG248QE monitors have given you. Have you tried unplugging your LCD monitors power cord from both the monitor and wall outlet? Please leave it unplugged for a minutes and then try restarting your monitor. Also, are you trying to use both LCD's to create a dual display for one computer? Is the display port on your graphics card at all bent? I would also suggest updating your graphics card to the most recent drivers as well, and see if you experience the same problem. If you would like to discuss this matter further please feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150259400.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

Best regards,
Jolene
