This monitor doesn’t provide a multitasking feature however its small screen size is suitable if you have to open two or three windows at a time. The ergonomic feature of this monitor is terrible, you can’t keep the monitor at a comfortable viewing option. This monitor is also less beneficial for content creators because doesn’t cover all sRGB color space which makes the yellow color look inaccurate during working on it.

This monitor has a mediocre contrast ratio of 1000:1 because that black appears like grey in a deep dark room. This monitor lacks support HDR but out-of-the-box accuracy is great. The Asus vg249q SDR color gamut is great but has decent Adobe RGB coverage which makes it unsuitable for a professional photographer.

Build and Design

The Asus vg249q monitor looks stylist with its Matte-finished look. Black matte chassis helps in easy cleaning of dust. The screen on three sides is bezel-free which helps the user to watch movies, play games, and do other activities without distraction. This 24-inches model is portable and takes less space on the desk.

The downfall of this monitor is its absence of a joystick. Instead of a joystick, the company offered OSD buttons. The stand of the monitor is v-shaped and the material of the stand is generic plastic that does not seem like premium material however it supports the stand effectively.

However, its classic look and decent style make your living room more attractive.

Image Quality

The Asus vg249q monitor supports IPS panel technology that provides a quality image as compared to the monitor that supports the TN panel. The monitor tends to cover 100% color gamut. Although the monitor has decent SDR peak brightness.

The Asus vg249q exceeds its brightness when it reaches 295 cd/m². At 60% of brightness the contrast ratio it’s 1050:1 which seems to be great for an IPS panel but instead of that, it fails to improve its black luminance. Instead of doing all the color settings, the image looks grey when the black image appears in the display, especially at in the night and darkroom.

The monitor gives uniformity of panel as light doesn’t leak when the black light spread. Although the corner of the monitor looks cloudy special when the screen is off. The 23.8 inches with 1920*1080 resolution gives a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees resulting in minimal distortion when you see from an extreme position.

Performance

The monitor has a 144 Hz refresh rate that gives perfect look and a buttery smooth display view that makes it perfect for the fast-paced game. The monitor is featured with extreme low motion blur technology that eliminates motion blur and smearing with 1ms MPRT. This feature helps to provide a sharp image even if the image is in motion. That helps the gamer to respond quickly in action games.

It has flicker-free technology that eliminates the duplication of motion and also helps in protecting from eye strain. At Max refresh rate the Asus vg249q gives superb response time and gives a clear image even the object is moving at a faster speed. At the setting of 40, it gives the fastest response time, and at the setting of 100, you reach a 1ms response time however after all sets the total response time is still slower.
