Manufacturers have recently started releasing a range of models with ~24″ Full HD 144Hz IPS panels. This combination of price and performance is exactly what some users are after. The ASUS VP249QGR is one such model, featuring the simple and sleek design members of the company’s VP series are known for. The top and side bezels are very slim, with a dual-stage design. This combines a very slender panel border with a slim hard plastic outer component. The bottom bezel is thicker, dark grey matte plastic with a brushed texture. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by pressable buttons on the underside of the bottom bezel, towards the right side. There are also some dark red button labels on the bottom bezel.

This features a 144Hz refresh rate and support for Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync, with a 48 – 144Hz variable refresh rate range (plus LFC support). Other specifications of note include a 1000:1 specified static contrast ratio and 178°/178° horizontal/vertical viewing angles.

The monitor supports 8-bit colour (6-bit + FRC dithering) and features a WLED backlight with a standard colour gamut (~sRGB) and a typical maximum luminance of 250 cd/m². To aid relaxing viewing, Low Blue Light (LBL) settings feature. A 4ms grey to grey response time is specified.
