Asus ROG SWIFT PG248Q 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Best bang for your buck! 12/13/2016

This review is from: Asus ROG SWIFT PG248Q 24" 3D LED HD GSync Monitor

Pros: -A lot of the current top perks - G-Sync, 144hz, OC to 180hz, blue light filter adjustment, 1ms, 3D Vision compatible
-Excellent size. 24" is enough, 27" is a bit too much if you're farsighted (like me)
-No more "splash" screen when turning on and off! Yay.
-USB ports are useful, I connected my mouse and usb cable for phone
-Awesome style, the red ring is a nice touch since my LEDs for my PC theme are red
-Really, really love the FPS counter.
-"Joystick" knob, buttons to calibrate are very easy to use

I love this monitor! I got lucky and received mine with ZERO dead pixels. Cosmetically it's flawless , there are no scratches or anything, as if this monitor was brand new. Games now run as smooth as butter. G-Sync + 144hz? It's an amazing experience. If you are on 60hz (like I was) and have any 2nd thoughts or anything whatsoever, stop thinking and BUY this monitor now. This is a $650-$700 monitor for half the price. You'll regret it once it's gone.

Cons: -No protective film on the screen when received. It was at risk to scratches.
-No protective styrofoam bag on it when received
-No HDMI cable, instructions booklet or CD driver
-Colors and contrast could be better
-You have to level your eye sight directly to the monitor to clearly see
-Blue Light Filter could be better. I still like Flux more
-Sometimes I notice some flickering, but rarely

I can't think of anything else to say. I am really happy with this monitor.

ASUS Transformer Book T100 - Intel Z3740 Quad Core 2GB RAM 32GB SSD + 500GB HDD 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Compact
-Lightweight
-Battery life is very, very decent
-Win8 & Office 2013 FREE forever, just don't lose the card.
-Slick design, very nice grey color
-Screen is reasonably bright
-Screen easily docks to keyboard (unlike the TF300T's)
-2-in-1! (Tablet + Laptop...what could be better??)
-Win8 runs anything I throw at it
-500GB in the keyboard! Amazing value.
-Great price ($380 + tax + shipping)

I'm incredibly happy with this purchase. I couldn't stand the Asus TF300T any longer due to unit sucking after an update, so I bought this and I haven't looked back. Win8 runs fantastic and I have no issues whatsoever other than a hotkey driver issue I had.

From a productive side, this Office version is very good, lots of helpful apps in the store (the ones pre-installed are awesome too like the Finance and Mail one). I'd trust this unit to do some serious work on.

From an entertainment side, I installed every game I played from the 90's and early 00's onto the 500GB (CS 1.6, Diablo 2, Rollercoaster tycoon, etc.) and much, much more. The games run superb!! Wish I had this baby in 2002. Also if you're into comics, DL 'cover' it's only $3 but it's a very nice comic app, better than Android's Perfect Viewer.


Oh and the keyboard isn't that bad. I can type at the same rate as on my desktop.

Cons: -Build quality is entirely plastic but the keyboard doesn't feel that bad.

-32GB isn't much at all... I have about 7GB left after updates, essential apps and whatnot (games and such go to the 500GB). Do NOT purchase the 64GB though. I will not come with the 500GB keyboard HD.

-Fingerprints easily print onto the screen, but that's what screen protectors are for.

-It could use another USB port.

-Mini-USB port too close to the HDMI port, it can get confusing at times.

-I don't like the feel of the volume, Windows, and power buttons. They feel too sunk in making it hard to push.

-No rear camera, but that's not important.

-MousePad left/right click feels way too firm

-Windows Apps CANNOT be installed elsewhere but in the main C drive. Not Asus' fault however, it's Microsoft's.

-The App store isn't as good as Android's.

Other Thoughts: If you decide to purchase it do the following:

1) Buy the Poetic' leather case along with a screen protector immediately after purchasing here or wherever. You'll thank me later.

2) Once you've obtain the unit, UPDATE! Update Windows AND Asus drivers, especially the Bios. You might have to install the ATK (Hotkey) drivers again. Mine got corrupted; the brightness hotkeys wouldn't response.

3) LEARN the Win8 start menu! It isn't that bad at all. I like it now.

No way should this have 3/5 stars!
