ASUS VG248QE Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I love this monitor! If you've never gamed at higher frame rates you will be amazed and will never be able to play on a 60hz lcd again. The screen contrast is the best I've had in a monitor and results in a sharp, crisp picture for this resolution and at this size. If you have a fast rig you will really notice the 1 ms timing as it is soooo smooth! I also had NO DEAD Pixels! With an i7 3820 and gtx 690, I noticed that the 27" had screen delays that were gone with the vg248qe. This monitor gives me the best gaming experience ever! The stand is great too! Oh yeah, the prices is great too.

Cons: You kidding...none.

Other Thoughts: I bought the vg278he first and after playing on it for a few months I was just too unhappy with the resolution at 27" as it looked horrible to me. From 24" to 27" my games took a real hit in visual quality. Also, 27" was just too big for fast paced fps type games and made me feel motion sickness if sitting too close. 24" is the perfect size for gaming in my opinion. I buy tons of computer hardware and

ASUS VG248QE Black 24

Pros: Awesome contrast, obviously 144hz is sweet, good sharpness, but the 1ms response time is the clincher! The stand is the best I've ever had and adjusts in every way possibly needed. Killer price too! No dead pixels!

Cons: You kidding? NONE!

Other Thoughts: Important! Please read: A few months ago I bought the vg278he and was very happy with the refresh rate and contrast, but that was it. I was very disappointed with the resolution at that size. My games no longer had a nice sharp look...ever! More importantly, I was noticing missing textures in Borderlands 2 and lagging physx effects. For instance, when firing weapons some of the projectiles would just be white squares. Also explosions and splatters of fluids from exploding creatures was not smooth looking. I tried all kinds of game tweaks, overclocked my i7 3820, tweaked my geforce 690 and nothing; Problems persisted. Long story short, immediately after setting this 24" up in place of the 27" things are perfect. No graphics lags anymore and everything is awesome! I am very, very happy! IMO 27" is too big for fps gaming. This is the best lcd option today with the exception of maybe the benq 144hz which is said to have a slightly better picture but is easily more expensive and is not available at yet. Buy this! I'm ordering another one as soon as I finish this review.

ASUS VG278HE Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great contrast and nice bright colors after careful calibration. 144Hz is nice, though really no better than 120Hz. Height adjustment is really convenient. Pretty sturdy stand and no dead pixels--even though this monitor is sold with a zero dead pixel or you can exchange policy which is awesome Comes with ddvi cable that is required to run the increased refresh rate.

Cons: I hate to say it, but the resolution is very disappointing! 1080P @ 27" is just too fuzzy for me. I'm often reminded of the old dot matrix printers because the image is that poor; especially with text. Also, sharpness can only be adjusted in jumps of 10x (10, 20, 30,...100) which does not allow fine tuning. I don't know why they did this but it feels very limiting. Color uniformity is also a big con and you are likely to see some color distortion with blue.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my Asus 24" there is a complete loss of "wow" factor graphics wise. I never find myself impressed with how sharp and focused in-game objects and/or textures look. However, gaming at the high resolution is amazing and I notice that I can see things such as bullets and bullet tracers, and grenades, etc. coming at me and whizzing past me in a way that I had never even known was possible. At 60Hz, I never realized how much I was missing. It truly enhances 1st person shooters to a remarkable level. I could NEVER go back to 60Hz. I was ready to RMA this monitor the first night, but there really is no better alternative at this time. There is no 27" 120Hz with a better resolution. Until 1440P 27" LCDs are available with 120Hz or higher this is what one has to settle with.
