What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS MG248Q 24-inch 144Hz Full HD FreeSync Gaming 3D Monitor
  • Wow... I had put off upgrading from my 19" CRT (1600x1200 @ 75hz) for so long because I was THAT scared of input lag and flat screen monitors. I absolutely can't stand even a hint of input lag, it kills me in first person shooter games.
  • At 144hz, there is, also, absolutely, positively ZERO screen tearing. Games look and play amazing. It actually improved my skill immediately. If you have an AMD video card, you need to enable AdaptiveSync to turn on FreeSync via the Crimson drivers.
  • One of the best monitors for gamers. Screen size is perfect and screen is fully adjustable. Controls are easy for color, depth of black and eco mode, smart mode, blue light filter, etc. Reaction time is incredible.
  • This is the second monitor for my dual-monitor setup. I absolutely love it because it can handle a lot going on at once, has a large screen, and is easy on the eyes. One thing I did right away was turn down the brightness on it when I set it up because it's super bright by default.
  • The colors get better when you run it on 60hz, but get noticeably worse at 144hz - which I'm assuming is the main feature people want out of a monitor like this.
Acer XF240H Full HD
  • The display is crisp and stays at 144hz once it is set.
  • As long as there is a clear picture at 1080p and it works, no problem.
  • the refresh rate is bomb, the picture is sharp, the lots of picture control
  • Perfect no flaws, running at 144 Hz, games are at 144 fps match. Monitor is very nice, I believe I was expecting more from 144 fps.
  • 4 inch screen - really is a noticeable difference upgrade from 21.5. 120/144 Hz refresh - can choose - noticeably more fluid game-play. Colors do look good for a TN panel after adjustment

What customers say about "Display"
ASUS MG248Q 24-inch 144Hz Full HD FreeSync Gaming 3D Monitor
  • Color wise, you can fix the settings however you like, but as far as I'm concerned, the colors look great and it has PLENTY of brightness.
  • The MG248Q colors look fine out of the box, but I'll try calibrating at some point. It has adaptive-sync, I still don't know what that is even after researching, but I turn off v-sync in my games and I have yet to see any screen tearing whatsoever.
  • Out of box gamma setting is very bad, needs immediate adjustment
  • The problem is, the colors are just awful. The whites are never white and the blacks are never black. It looks so washed out.
Acer XF240H Full HD
  • Color and quality matches perfectly more or less 'out the box' from screen to screen in multi-monitor setup.
  • Colors look good, no dead pixels. I don't have any back light bleed like others are talking about.
  • The picture is stunning....really beautiful and bright. It has all the ports you would want...
  • Bright monitor, excellent response time and crisp pictures/videos. I have no complaints with this purchase.
  • The brightness was a bit high and the colors not that good out of the box but I was able to tune it to the point where it looks pretty close to my previous ips monitor.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS MG248Q 24-inch 144Hz Full HD FreeSync Gaming 3D Monitor
  • Built in menu is super user-friendly using the joystick-style control on the back of the monitor
  • It looks very sleek and is clearly well made. I found the stand to be very nice and the build to be solid. Thin bezels are nice took look at.
  • Sometimes very visible scanlines can be seen after waking monitor from standby, power cycle required to get rid of them (happens about 3 times out of 10)
  • Speakers are garbage, don't bother with them.
  • My only worry is the little menu joystick on the back of the monitor for controlling the monitor settings, it sticks out a bit and I can see someone accidentally swiping it while cleaning and breaking it off.
Acer XF240H Full HD
  • Bought for gaming. Am using it for work. 24" is a good size. Nice big base. No more screen tearing, no stutter stepping. Smooth.
  • I really really liked the monitor stand that came with this as it is very sturdy while offering very customization screen positioning. The first monitor I ordered was not actually mine, but for my brother who has never bought one before and asked me for a recommendation.
  • Setup was ok, The monitor was three separate parts that attached together easily.
  • Smooth gameplay with AMD's FreeSync, even at lower framerates with LFC (Low Framerate Compensation).

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS MG248Q 24-inch 144Hz Full HD FreeSync Gaming 3D Monitor
  • It comes with a display port cable, unlike the DVI-D the BenQ would use. One of the games I tested was Witcher 3 with max settings on my 1070, so even with around 80 fps and no v-sync I can't notice any tearing.
  • Well, to cut to the chase, everything worked perfectly straight out of the box. It had a DisplayPort cable and HDMI cable included.
  • Monitor is very stylish, but had issues with connectivity through a DVI cable so had to switch out to older video card and use the Display Port cable.
  • It is unfortunate that there is no audio output port on this device to connect to external speakers, but what can you expect from customer insensitive, moronic enginering!
  • If you use any kind of hdmi display or 4k tv it still does not compete with the zippy refresh rate of 144hz from a display port for gaming. Must have!
Acer XF240H Full HD
  • Comes with a DP, HDMI, and a DVI cable so don't buy a separate one like I did.
  • The monitor does support hdmi single link Dvi and display port and will only support 144 with display port. The HDMI supports 60 and dvi is the 120. They give you a display port with this product.
  • The assembly was EASY! I didn't read the manual so it took me a total of 5 min. The display is non glossy so that's REALLY good!
  • Included in the box was an HDMI cable, DVI cable, and Displayport cable - this was convenient as I wasn't sure if these would be included and it was nice to avoid running to the store to pick up cables myself.
  • HDMI works but will only go to 60hz with hdmi.
