Asus Monitors: The Best and Most Reliable Models for Better Experience

Best Asus Monitors

When choosing a brand-new Monitor, some people concentrate on display specifications, whatever the brand, while others strictly adhere to the brand they're knowledgeable about.

Whether you had a nice experience with customer service, are a satisfied owner of other devices by ASUS or are simply searching for something fresh, ASUS monitors live up to their reputation.

The screens in this guide are tested and approved; so long as you stick with our guidelines about what specs match your needs, you will have peace of mind with whatever you choose to buy.

As you may have already worked out, there are plenty of ASUS monitors available. Keep on reading to learn what each specification implies, so that you don't end up with something that has unnecessary features, but instead with something ideal for you.

Everyday Monitors

It’s possible you can get a high quality Full HD monitor for only around $100. There is, of course, still a wide range of options; we advise that you put your money into an IPS screen rather than going for a TN.

IPS panels don’t cost that much compared to TN anymore, particularly the cheaper ones but the benefits are very much worthwhile. You will have a screen with perfect viewing angles and far more vibrant and intense colors.

  • 3W x 2 stereo, RMS, with 5Wx2 Amplifier, SonicMaster sound optimization technology was co-developed by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower for premium immersive audio

If you're looking for a greater IPS display that you could also use in multi-monitor setups, the more recent Designo MX259H is a stunning yet reasonably priced Complete HD ASUS monitors.

It includes an IPS panel with authentic 8-bit color service and 5ms response time. It is not VESA mount compatible and can only be tilted by -5, 20 levels, but it offers 2x3W built-in speakers and 2x5W amplifiers for superior audio quality. You will find two HDMI 1.4 ports and a VGA.

You will also have access to an Exclusive QuickFit feature, which lets you place a digital grid on-screen to format your documents and photos.

The ASUS MX259H screen is also available in various sizes, but the 25-inch is the cheapest and will have the best picture quality as for 1920×1080 resolution – we wouldn’t recommend the 27-inch size, as the image comes out pixelated.

ASUS Designo MX27AQ 27" Monitor WQHD 2560x1440 IPS DP HDMI Eye Care...
  • 27" Wqhd (2560 x 1440) resolution. Ah-ips technology with wide 178° viewing angles, minimize color shifting.

The difference Involving 1440p and 1080p resolutions is important. On a 1440p screen, you do not only get more screen real estate, which lets you comfortably view two browsers near each other, but the picture becomes much clearer and detailed as a result of the higher pixel density.

The ASUS MX27AQ is essentially a 27-inch 1440p edition of the MX259H version, except that it features a DisplayPort rather than the VGA interface, and an excess HDMI with MHL support for content streaming of your MHL compatible devices.

In addition, the ASUS Designo MX27AQ comes with unique gaming features, like GamePlus, consisting of customizable overlays or an onscreen timer. There is also the MultiFrame software for simpler multitasking.

Rather than splashing out on another mounting adapter for which you’ll need a VESA compatible screen, you can pick up an ASUS PB278Q, saving yourself $40.

Additionally, the monitor features height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments, 2x3W integrated speakers, plus plenty of connectivity options such as a DisplayPort, VGA, HDMI and Dual-Link DVI. The 32-inch edition, the ASUS PB328Q is also quite cost-effective, with thinner bezels and immersive picture quality.

ASUS Designo MX299Q 29”(21:9) Monitor UWQHD (2560 x 1080) IPS DP...
  • 29" Ultra-wide 21:9 Quad HD (2560 x 1080) resolution for pristine cinematic experience and enhanced productivity.
  • ASUS Eye Care technology with Flicker free for less Eye fatigue
  • 3W x 2 stereo, RMS, with 5Wx2 Amplifier, SonicMaster sound optimization technology was co-developed by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower for premium immersive audio

Here we have yet another ASUS Display in the stunning Designo range, this one is an ultrawide screen making use of 21:9 aspect and an 2560×1080 resolution.

The MX299Q is the perfect display if you love watching movies and playing video games because it will give you a more immersive viewing experience. Be certain to check whether your favorite games permit the 21:9 aspect ratio, or else you will be playing with black borders on the sides.

Some movies are actually shot in 2.39:1 aspect ratio, although particular Blu-rays provide you with the ability to choose between 16:9 and ultra-wide formats for the best movie watching experience.

The ASUS MX299Q ultra-wide screen could take some time getting used to, as it appears as though you had put two 17-inch 5:4 monitors next to each other. However, as soon as you get used to it, you will enjoy the extra horizontal space and the fantastic pixel density of 96 pixels per inch.

For multitasking and productivity, you are still better off with two 1080p monitors that you can get for the same price. The ASUS MX299Q IPS screen is mostly intended for engaging video entertainment at home.

Additionally, it includes two speakers with amplifiers like the rest of the Designo monitors. It is not VESA mount compatible and it is tilt-only. There's a HDMI 1.4 interface including MHL support, as well as a DisplayPort 1.2. The IPS panel uses 95 percent sRGB color space coverage, 5ms response time, and 178-degree viewing angles.

The ASUS Designo series provides a 34-inch ultra-wide screen, with 3440×1440 resolution, but it is twice the cost of the 29-inch model, because it also supplies FreeSync and a 100Hz refresh rate. If you are a passionate gamer, it is definitely worth it, but it is a little much for everyday use.

ASUS’s PB287Q 4K monitor isn’t too expensive, but it uses a TN panel while only being 28-inch. Its HDMI port maxes out at 30Hz in 4K, so it is not suggested for 4K console gaming. An IPS 1440p monitor would still have a much better picture quality overall because of the striking colors.

On top of this, playing games and more is definitely much less demanding using 1440p than when using 4K.

Another good pick for an ASUS 4K monitor is the PB279Q with an IPS, but it is pricier than some picks that are just as good, or in some cases better 4K monitors on the market. In the case that you truly need a high-quality ASUS 4K monitor, we suggest that you save up for a relevant 4K model.

How to Choose the Right Monitor

4K Computer monitor

Finding the perfect monitor can be difficult, particularly when there’s plenty of specific terminology being used. While it may seem fairly simple on the outside, there are a great deal of features and options to watch out for when purchasing a monitor, so you get the one that fits your needs and requirements.

1. What aspect and resolution ratio do I need?

There are two major specs to looking for a monitor: the resolution and its aspect ratio. The resolution is defined as only dimensions the display has in pixels; aspect ratios denote the relationship between them.

Currently, no there is not a monitor good enough that will include a resolution less than 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (Total HD). Complete HD displays have an aspect ratio of 16:9, meaning they're wider than they are tall and will be the exact same shape as TVs.

This resolution and is an acceptable size for overall Windows tasks and for gambling, in addition to fitting the Kinect HD standard.

If you would like a bit more vertical Resolution, a 1,920 x 1,200 monitor can do just fine, although these are rather rare. If you would like to get a little more space on the Windows Desktop, in addition to making it easier to work on two files side by side, you should find a higher-resolution screen.

2. What refresh rate do I want?

The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the amount is how many times your screen refreshes per second. To put it differently, it is the frame rate of the screen: the higher the number, the smoother things will appear.

You should expect any screen you buy to have at least a 60Hz refresh rate. But some displays have faster refresh rates like 120Hz, 144Hz and even up to 200Hz.

These will provide you noticeably smoother performance in Windows applications, but are mostly aimed at players, and you will require a powerful graphics card for your PC to handle them.

3. Is the response time important?

Response time is the time it requires a pixel to change color. On older displays, slow reaction times could result in ghosting effects, due to pixels trying to keep up with motion in the picture; however, this is an issue that doesn't affect modern displays using their 1-4ms reaction times.

These very small differences are not likely to be noticed by even the keenest observer, even though it's always worth checking the spec sheet on the off-chance the reaction time of a display is very slow.

Input lag is just another thing to keep an eye out for and is not to be confused with reaction time. It must be noted that this is not recorded by producers; input lag is the time it takes for your monitor to react to an input signal, often being a mouse click or swipe.

4. How do I judge picture quality?

Ultimately, however, the top priority to get a monitor is picture quality. Basically, any monitor's quality can be broken down into color accuracy and contrast levels (and technically, black too).

We can examine the accuracy of color by measuring the percent of the sRGB standard color gamut a screen can display. A high percentage, such as 95 percent or above, shows the display is capable of displaying a wide assortment of color, which should cause an accurate reproduction of pictures.

For higher-end panels, we also examine the bigger Adobe RGB gamut. Generally reserved for specialist applications like design for printing, displays that may cover a high proportion of the Adobe RGB gamut are extremely costly.

With specialist monitors, we also focus on color temperature, since this can be especially important when working with photos.
