ASUS VG249Q Specifications
Many users have been crying out for affordable ~24″ high refresh rate IPS panels. Models such as the well-rounded AOC 24G2(U) enter the market now after a long wait. TUF gaming monitor series ASUS VG249Q brings a different option to the market. The styling is similar to that of other recent series members. A rather understated look, with lots of matt black plastic and no ambitious elements of styling. The bezels are very slim, a dual-stage design consisting of a very slender panel border which is flush with the remainder of the screen and a slender outer hard plastic portion. Along the undeside of the bottom bezel, to the right, the OSD (Along Screen Display) is operated by pressable buttons. For a little visual pleasure these and the corresponding button labels are dark red. There’s also a dark red ring surrounding where the stand neck and base meet.
The monitor uses an IPS-type 23.8′′ (In-Plane Switching or similar) panel with resolution 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) and refresh rate 144HZ. Based around the LC238LF1F Panda, as used on the 24G2(U) with a custom wide backlight. Adaptive-Sync is supported, including AMD FreeSync support, with a refresh rate range of 48-144Hz and LFC support. A typical static contrast ratio of 1000:1, horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 178 °, and 8-bit (6-bit + FRC) color support is specified. A flicker-free WLED backlight is available with a typical maximum luminance of 250 cd / m2 and space coverage of ~sRGB colour. This is a key AOC differentiator, which provides DCI-P3 coverage of ~92 per cent. A 1ms MPRT response time is specified with the monitor using its ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) strobe backlight setting. The included stand provides maximum ergonomic versatility – this can be removed and replaced with an alternative solution that is compatible with VESA 100 x 100 mm. AC power input (internal power converter), DP 1.2a, HDMI 1.4, VGA and a 3.5 mm headphone jack are included in the ports face down. Includes 2 x 2W speakers for the basic sound quality.
