Asus VG248QE Gaming Monitor Review: My Verdict!

Today marks the day as the end of 6 months that I have been using the Asus VG249QE gaming monitor. Here’s what I liked about this particular monitor, and the things I didn’t (that they don’t tell you about). Let’s get started! If you are out there looking for a brand new monitor to buy for the best gaming experience, you might like to consider the Asus VG248QE monitor which has been recently launched by the company. It is a huge screen gaming monitor that takes care of all your gaming requirements. It offers 144Hz refresh rate, full HD resolution, 1ms response time and what not.

The new Asus VG248QE measures 24 inches with 1920 x 1080 resolutions. In one look you will observe that it offers a lot crispier and clearer image when we compared to other similar monitors. There are a lot of ports as well that allow the user to connect it to consoles, PC etc. However, despite of all these impressive specifications, here we are with a complete review of this new gaming screen and after we tested the monitor for various aspects, here is what we found:

Asus VG248QE 144Hz Gaming Monitor

Refresh Rate

You obviously expect great color variations and great viewing angles from a monitor and VG248QE is a display that is not going to disappoint you. The monitor picks a perfect road between the both and offers you great 144Hz refresh rate at a very cheap price. It maintains the smoothness during heavy gaming and there is no sign of stuttering and frame breaking at all.

Colour Contrast

It would be wrong to say that Asus VG248 QE offers the best colour sharpness among its competitors. But, it offers some great colours that go along with the performance that is very hard to resist. However, if you want a monitor for a really high gaming experience with excellent colours, you will have to compromise in that scenario if you go with this new monitor.

High FPS Gaming

Gone are those days when the games didn’t cross 60fps. The current games are so advanced and detailed that you need a monitor with at least 120fps rate to play them properly. Well, the 144Hz refresh rate is pretty good and the monitor is capable of processing and viewing the game frames smoothly. This much high refresh rate helps the player in performing the actions much precisely and without any delay, in the games. 144Hz refresh rate also eliminates the in-frame blurring and produces impeccable images.

Inputs and Outputs

One awesome thing about this Asus monitor is that it comes with an HDMI port as well as a display port which can help you to crank up the existing frame rate. There is another Dul link DVI input which supports all the older cards. One back point is that there is no VGA port in the monitor. But you can easily take care of that problem by making use of a VGA adaptor.

Asus VG248 takes care of your audio needs as well. There are a couple of speakers on both side of the monitor which offer great stereo sound to your ears. But the speaker are only only 2W speakers, so you must not expect bass or loud sound from them. However, they are perfect for listening to soft music and watching movies and videos. There is also a 3.5 mm jack on the side for connecting earphones, headphones or speakers to the screen.

Additional Items

There is an adjustable stand that you get along with this Asus Gaming monitor. You can adjust the height as per your desire. The adjustable stand can move upward and downwards. You don’t have to worry about the viewing angles as they can also be adjusted easily. Obviously, such big screen is very hard to handle and adjust. It looks like Asus took care of this problem as well.

Gaming Performance

Until now, we discussed the various features that VG248 QE offers, but the screen is a beast in terms of performance as well. It pairs perfectly with various graphics cards and the high frame refresh rate kills all kinds of motion blur and tearing problems. The games run as they should, i.e. seamlessly. The only problem is with the colors which could have been vibrant which could have improved the viewing angles as well. But that is something we can adjust to at this price tag.


Asus has brought this monitor especially for gamers with superb refresh rate which will take your gaming experience to a whole new level. Asus VG248 QE has all the required inputs, is solid, has a perfect adjustable stand, and what else would you ask from a 24-inch gaming monitor.

Asus could have added some more inputs and could have improved the color contrast but still, it is perfect for a high end gaming experience.
