A wide range of ~24″ Full HD options are available. A lot of recent focus in this segment has been on IPS options which provide a good mixture of speed and image quality. The ASUS VG248Q1B offers something of a blast from the past, with a focus primarily on speed from its TN panel. Diverging from many recent designs, the monitor adopts relatively thick bezels with dark matte plastic and nothing more than a sliver of panel border visible. As typical for models in the TUF Gaming series, a chunky plastic stand is also adopted. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by buttons on the underside of the bottom bezel, towards the right side.
A 24” 1920 x 1080 (Full HD or 1080p) TN panel is adopted, with support for a 165Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-Sync also features, including AMD FreeSync Premium with 48 – 165Hz VRR range plus LFC. Other aspects of note include a matte anti-glare screen surface, 170° horizontal and 160° vertical viewing angles, 1000:1 static contrast ratio and 8-bit colour support. A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 350 cd/m² typical luminance and ~sRGB colour gamut. Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included to promote a more relaxing viewing experience.
A 0.5ms grey to grey response time is specified, which as usual you shouldn’t put too much weight on. ELMB is included, a strobe backlight setting which can be used instead of Adaptive-Sync. The included stand is tilt-only, though 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 1.4 ports, DP 1.2a and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$170 USD.
