Whilst some prefer large screens with high resolutions, others are perfectly content with smaller screens of a more limited resolution. The ASUS VG247Q1A offers this, with a 23.8″ Full HD screen that focuses on responsiveness and contrast. The monitor has the fairly rugged styling synonymous with the TUF Gaming series to which it belongs. A thick dark grey matte plastic Y-shaped stand base is used, along with a fairly thick bottom bezel of similar material. The top and side bezels are slender, with a dual-stage design that includes a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen. Plus a slim hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick and accompanying buttons at the rear of the monitor, towards the right side as viewed from in front.
A 23.8″ 1920 x 1080 (Full HD or 1080p) VA panel is used. A matte anti-glare screen surface is employed with a 3500:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 8-bit colour specified. A 165Hz refresh rate is offered, with support for Adaptive-Sync. This includes AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia’s ‘G-SYNC Compatible Mode’ with a 48 – 165Hz VRR range (plus LFC). A flicker-free WLED backlight is used with Low Blue Light (LBL) settings offered to promote viewing comfort. A 350 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and ~sRGB colour gamut is offered. A 1ms MPRT response time is specified using the ELMB (Enhanced Local Motion Blur) strobe backlight setting which can be used instead of Adaptive-Sync. As usual, pay little attention to this specified response time. The included stand is tilt-only, whilst 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards and include; AC power (internal power converter), DP 1.2, 2 HDMI 1.4 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 1920 x 1080 @120Hz is supported on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. 2 x 2W speakers are included for basic sound output.
Further details are available on the manufacturer’s website. Information on price and availability still forthcoming.
