3 out of 5 eggsNot really .8mm bazel

Pros: 29:9, aspect, ratio, sound, DP, IN, port

Cons: contrast, bazel, no VESA hookup, no DP OUT

Other Thoughts: Bit disappointed, ASUS advertizes MX299Q as a 0,8mm bezel thickness screen and we all know what it means.


Good for making display walls, right?
Not in ASUS shop, add 10mm or so of dark unlit LCD screen and you get gaps of 22mm

Also no Display Port OUT only IN, I had to buy DP 3 way splitter.

Splitter works but you need to power off and on all screens to get it recognized each time you shut down computer. Some DP splitters have rescan button that forces DP splitter to recognize the DP attached to it again after shutdown of computer. Didn’t try other DP attached screen but it is what is happening with this screens and my DP splitter.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor!

Pros: Backlit LED with super high resolution! Brought whole new life to my High Def Photoshop work I did on normal LCD's. Starcraft 2 looks great everything looks great no complaints! This thing will emulate to whatever native resolution you have hooked up to it automatically.

Cons: None that I can think of. This is just what I am looking for. Extra wide makes it so you can have more windows open and view more scrolling horizontal so decreases needs for multiple monitors.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Good

Pros: Just Like having 2 monitors , but no SEAM in the Middle .

Cons: WARNING !!!
#1. You must have a Video Card that supports 2560 x 1080 Resolution .
#2. You must be plugged into the right input or it will not work . After You get it to work , You can change the input selection from the menu .

Other Thoughts: I always put Glass on front of All my Monitors & TV , I am going to do that with this one too . I Like the 2560 x 1080 Res , but I think 29" is just a little too small , I would Gladly pay an extra $100 for a 39" , Also this one is only 5 ms , I think they could have done a better job & made it 3 ms And yes I would gladly pay another $100 for a 1 ms

3 out of 5 eggsLooks nice. Build quality is lacking.

Pros: The screen is beautiful. Viewing angles are great. Colors really pop out at you. The emersion with this screen is super nice, especially when playing an FPS.

Cons: The stand is a bit wobbly. The buttons are located in the worst possible position, bottom right of the screen. The buttons are all touch based so my hand would sometimes just barely touch the screen when moving the mouse around on the desk. this causes the screen to shut off. really annoying. the plasticky covering left a residue on the stand which had to be cleaned off.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Image Bad craftmanship

Pros: The quality of the IPS panel is great. Colors are true and Movies on it are amazing. Didn't suffer any ghosting while playing BF3 at 2560x1080.

Cons: The way the screen was put together shows signs of it falling apart over time. I had the screen for about 2 weeks used it 9 hours a day and the front silver bezel unglued it self from just the heat the monitor was producing. It was such a major disappointment as the quality of the image was amazing. But having a high end monitor start falling apart within 2 weeks is so wrong. I just hope asus reads this and steps up there Quality control or revises the monitor bezel to have clips instead of being glued.

Other Thoughts: Would by again if its revised.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mario,

If you are using this monitor for gaming, this unit is designed to provide wider panorama views and HD graphics. It is ideal for entertainment and multimedia such as watching movies. For intense, extended hours of gaming, you may want to look into the VG Series (gaming monitors) or VN Series (these are the panels with thin bezels). If you require assistance with ASUS monitors, please contact me at and include case#3032094 in the subject line. ASUS Customer Loyalty is here to listen and respond to your concerns and to help you with a positive ASUS experience.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but panel is off?

Pros: Very good quality
Great IPS panel.
Very sharp
Everything pops out at you.
Great for gaming mostly MMO's.

Cons: None so far but other thoughts may be of importance to consumers.

Other Thoughts: Ummm the monitor i got is a bit weird. The top corner of the panel has a bit of space left inside where if u press against it itll move inward. Its sort of popping out a bit i guess. If you look at it from the side you will see the panel lined up perfectly until you slowly move towards the top.This may be a quality issue. I have not experienced a monitor that does that but it might be based on how it was designed. It doesnt stick out like a sore thumb, but i noticed it stuck out a bit as i was checking out the monitor. The pictures provided by newegg also shows it too.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Monitor

Pros: Very Good Color
No Input Lag
Even runs at 120hz (overclock)
very nice FOV in games that support it

Cons: Not all videos and games are 21:9

Other Thoughts: The design of the monitor is very nice. Picture quality is good too. I was really surprised that the monitor was able to overclock to 120hz. The only drawback would be the content available. If you are watching movies on bluray with 21:9, it looks REALLY nice. Pictures pop up etc. But if you are watching or gaming with 16:9 content, it can be a little distracting with black bars on the sides. (4:3 content too) Streaming movies or tv shows will show black bars on both sides. Still a very nice monitor with good design, picture.
