Beauty Beyond Boundaries

The ASUS MX Series design was inspired by the concentric style of a sundial — a masterpiece of innovation created over a millennia ago. The ASUS design processes follow a similar line of thinking: simple yet innovative, natural yet empowering. The ASUS Design Team found inspiration in the sundial concept, and crafted a stand that symbolizes complete flexibility, professionalism, and meticulous art.

ASUS Designo Series

A masterful culmination of advanced technology and artistic design, the Designo Series MX299Q Ultra-wide 21:9 Cinematic monitor represents the current state of the art in PC monitors. A sleek 29in. AH-IPS display with an ultra-wide 21:9 ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution, the MX229Q delivers a 33% larger display area compared to a Full HD monitor for the best theater-like home entertainment. What's more, the MX299Q has an edge-to-edge, frameless cinematic display for an ideal multi display setup and stylish design.

Ultra-Wide Resolution Enhances Work and Play

With a display area equivalent to that of two 17in. (5:4 aspect ratio) monitors placed alongside each other, the ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultra-wide 21:9 Cinematic monitor has a display area 33% wider than a Full HD monitor.

ASUS Designo Series

The 21:9 aspect ratio gives you more screen real estate for working with multiple windows side-by-side as you would with a secondary display. The 2560 x 1080 resolution also means there are no black bars above and below the image when watching widescreen 2.35:1 movies and gamers can also enjoy games in immersive cinematic widescreen.

ASUS Designo Series

The LED-backlit AH-IPS display has extremely accurate color reproduction that makes the MX299Q ideally suited for both professional and home use. A 178° wide viewing angle also ensures minimal color distortion for enhanced screen sharing.

Incredibly Subtle yet Sophisticated
ASUS Designo Series

The MX299Q features an ultra-slim profile measuring just 16.4mm at its thinnest point. ASUS Designo Series MX monitors have received numerous design accolades that include the 2012 Japan Good Design Award. The MX299Q also won a 2013 CES Innovations Awards in the Video Displays category.

Premium, Immersive SonicMaster Audio, Co-Developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEPower®

The ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultra-wide 21:9 Cinematic monitor features ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. A combination of advanced audio hardware and professional audio processing, SonicMaster refines every acoustic detail to deliver crystal clear sound with richer, more distinct vocals and wide frequency range. The MX299Q has an embedded Bang & Olufsen ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip that delivers incredible audio fidelity through the two built-in 3W stereo speakers for rich and satisfying sound.

Considering its slender form factor, adding powerful audio to the MX299Q presented a challenge. Nonetheless, the display features up to 32mm diameter speakers for greater and smoother sound impact with better bass performance. It also offers a resonance chamber of up to 100cc, expanding monitor sound range to new extremes.

A built-in amplifier powers speaker sound reproduction, just like a car engine with more horsepower means better performance can be attained. MX299Q uses up to 5W amplifiers per channel, with speakers embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more powerful and striking sound.

Robust Connectivity
ASUS Designo Series

With a variety of video input options ranging from DisplayPort, Dual-link DVI and HDMI/MHL, and with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) providing a single-cable video and power connection for compatible smartphones and tablets, you can connect almost any multimedia device to your MX299Q Ultra-wide 21:9 Cinematic monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsWas great then...

Pros: Really big, nice viewing angle. The speakers are not bad if you have nothing else to use. Great color and picture quality.

Cons: Well I have owned this for a little over a year, and within the first 4 months of owing this monitor it started to burn the image(s) into the screen. If Im playing a game which has a stay in place bar (i.e health bar, action bar ect.) the image will burn into the screen in little time at all (less than 5 minutes). The background burns into the screen as well, after trying to play a game for 30 minutes the screen becomes so disgusting looking from all the burn imaging and it makes it extremely hard to play games, watch movies ect.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure if I just got a "bad egg" but when the monitor was new it was working amazing; shortly after using it (less than 300 hours) it began to "act up." I purchased this monitor when it was still relatively new to the market and now I no longer use this monitor anymore so now it is just collecting dust in the box it came in. I purchased another monitor. I would love to keep using this monitor if it did not burn the images into the screen. If I were able to I would send this monitor back in hopes of being able to switch it out with a replacement one. Anyways I hope this review does not make people not want to get this monitor as it is a GREAT monitor (when mine was working properly).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: The ultra wide 2560x1080 resolution is great for multi-tasking. You can have multiple windows open at the same time without compromising the size of the windows.

The screen is crisp and bright.

Cons: The sound isn't the greatest through line-in, but I have a separate sound system so it's not a huge issue. I haven't tried the audio through HDMI, but would assume it's the same.

Other Thoughts: The arm that connects to the stand is pushed flat in the box and requires some pulling to move it from it's initial position. I was worried that it was either broken or that I would break the monitor by pulling on it too hard, but once I got it loose I haven't had any problems.

3 out of 5 eggsGood panel, poor case

Pros: Excellent LCD panel. Bright, clear, with an amazing amount of work space and lots of options for managing color, etc. 2560X1080 is the way to go if you use lots of screen space when working.

Cons: The buttons on the front are not mechanical in any way - just brushing them with your finger will activate them, which can be very frustrating in a tight work space. It happens alot, enough to make me wish I bought this from another manufacturer.

There is a metal trim strip at the bottom of the monitor that fell off a few months after I got it. It was just tacked on with cheap glue.

Other Thoughts: ASUS doesn't actually manufacture the panel itself, so you can get the exact same screen with all the pros without the poor construction.Additionally, the back of the monitor doesn't seem to be compatible with third party multi-monitor stands and wall mounts, so keep that in mind if you are thinking of getting one.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing monitor

Pros: Huge screen space
great AH-IPS panel
fast no ghosting
Great for gaming
Gets compliments and questions :)

Cons: None really....kinda big for my gaming space but thats my own fault because I use a chest and not a regular desk.

Other Thoughts: Just an amazing monitor. Ive never seen one like it and Ive used many monitors over the years. Im a pure hard core gamer and for that it is performing great. Everything Ive played so far.....even older titles from mid 2005 or so....have supported the 2560x1080 res. It is very bright and has amazing colors. The design of it is very futuristic too. Glad I bought it...thanks to my wife. :) I very much recommend giving it a look if you're in the market for a new monitor.
I went from an Asus VW266H 1920x1200 to this one and was worried very much so about losing that extra inch of viewing space in the verticle. But after using this one a few hours I didn't miss it at all. Thank goodness. So all and all a great buy at $400. Thanks Asus.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful image

Pros: This monitor has the best image of any monitor that I have owned in 30 years. Works well with games as well as applications. I have had no problems with the workmanship on mine. I bought this after researching the best computer monitor on the internet (C.R.) and I have not been disappointed.

Cons: After reading the reviews at this time, it appears that others are having trouble with the build quality of their monitors. I would suggest sending them back and getting a new one. Possibly spotty quality control but mine has been perfect. Quality control is not typical of Asus.

Other Thoughts: You will get used to the odd aspect ratio quickly and after a while prefer it. You can easily do side-by-side documents or internet or whatever.

2 out of 5 eggsOwned for 5 Months

Pros: - it's wide.

Cons: - Overly sensitive buttons in bad position. (-1 egg)
- Poor quality. (-2 eggs)

Other Thoughts: I've owned this monitor for over five months now. For the majority of the time, I've thought the quality was pretty decent, and that others that had posted about shoddy quality had gotten lemons. Then today, I walked into my office, and found that the faceplate/bezel on the bottom of the monitor had fallen off. FELL... OFF.... OVERNIGHT. WHEN I WASN'T EVEN USING THE THING, AND IT WAS IN SLEEP MODE. I was able to stick it back on, and will probably just fix the problem with superglue... but this is honestly the first time in thirty years of purchasing computers that I've *ever* seen parts just falling off of a monitor. And it's not like I'm a heavy gamer or anything - I'm old! I don't even use the speakers in the monitor most of the time, so I can't conceive of any possible vibrations loosening this faceplate. I would not have expected this from an Asus product given their otherwise spotless record with me.

Manufacturer Response:

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
