Product Comparison: ASUS VG248QE vs ASUS MG248Q
- I'm using this for my recently built gaming PC. It is awesome! The response time, the refresh rate, oh man.
- The monitor looks great. I love the size and how crisp everything looks. I use it for gaming and as soon as I started it made the game look a hundred times better.
- This monitor is amazing. 144hz and 1ms response times. I back ordered it and considering the price I paid it was well worth the wait.
- 1ms response time, 144hz refresh rate, great color display and constrast ratio, are just some of the features that this screen brags about.
- The mounting is fantastic, the display is vibrant, the refresh rate is fantastic (I've never seen a refresh rate at 144Hz), and the response time is exactly what a FPS gamer wants.
- 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.
- Once again asus has hit it out of the park with this monitor. The picture quality is awesome an very crisp. Was easy to set up. The price was excellent an would highly recommend this monitor.
- Exactly what I want from a 144hz 24'' monitor. People say that the color contrast is not as great as they would like, but for the price and 144hz, the pros greatly outweigh the cons.
- Everthing is so bright, sharp and clear. Not to mention BIG. Images in the landscape format look great as is, and to view portrait format images I simply rotate the monitor ninety degrees.
- From stock, the coloring and the contrast arent the best, but that is easily fixable with just a little bit of fine tuning and looking up other peoples setups.
- Good monitor but colors washed out, and had a blue pixel, im waiting to get refunded.
- 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.
- No problems, good adjustment options, easy to navigate settings.
- I bought two of these monitors and the colors look great with some fine adjustments. I really like the mobility of the stands. Tilt motion and able to spin into portrait mode.
- The monitor setup was very easy. It is hooked up to an iMac mini. The first thing I notice is the text is not all that sharp. I guess I am rather spoiled by retina displays. I love the height adjustment and the rotation ability.
- It can swivel, tilt, and stuff. Only thing it can't do is give you a full body massage. Its perfect in all my uses.
- The sound from the built-in speakers is good too. I am very pleased with this purchase!
- 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.
- This monitor has everything to offer right out the box with cables that you need to connect to your graphics card. I really like the height adjustment feature that most entry monitors dont have.
- Has a HDMI, DVI, and old school VGA connection. HDMI worked great, basically plug and play. Great price and great quality!
- VGA... the two HDMI ports are a plus but I would have liked to see a DVI-D or Displayport here, that would have made this monitor future proof in my opinion.
- The DVI-D port needed very careful alignment and the male end needed to be very tightly fastened down. This indicates that the port itself was poorly manufactured, but still functional.
- First of all I had to replace my monitor because it had some sort of connection issue, when I turned it on I would get static(noise).
- 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!
