Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
- Didn't have to adjust much other than the obscenely high brightness that every monitor seems to come with nowadays.
- ELMB is surprisingly good even though it seems to lock the overdrive. If I had to guess it would be overdrive 60 since it's the default setting of the monitor. I had only heard bad things about ELMB from reviews on other models so I was glad to see it's at least a little bit useful here.
- No grainy text or anything of that sort. Menu is easy to navigate and the OSD joystick is of good quality.
- Really good stand which fortunately seems to be a staple of recent Asus monitors.
- The speakers are well, monitor speakers. If you've heard monitor speakers, you've mostly heard them all.
Also I'm not sure if this is a feature on every 240hz monitor since this is my first one but I found it interesting that Windows registers the panel as 10 bit color if you use it below 240hz. And for the people worried about 60hz performance, sorry. I don't have any equipment to measure exact numbers. All I can say is that when I played my PS4/Switch I didn't notice anything off.
All in all, I highly recommend the monitor if you're on the lookout for a 240hz panel. To be honest the price ($319) is almost too good to be true when you compare it to other gaming monitors in the price range. I tried a 1440p monitor and didn't think the performance hit was worth the minuscule fidelity gain. If you're looking for a monitor you'll strictly use for gaming/browsing, I really think you're better off sticking with the tried and true 24"/1080p combo so that you can utilize higher frame rates and not have to worry about messing with Windows scaling to have easily readable text. Maybe get a 1440p (or bigger) as a secondary? I dunno. Everyone has different needs so I'll just shut up and end this crappy review here.
Assembly was silly easy. Attach base, plug in power, plug in HDMI or DP cable, and you're in business. Only gripe I have at this point is the IO ports on the back are a little close to the monitor backplate. I was originally going to use a Cable Matters DP cable that had locks on it, but the thicker plug on that one necessitated I use the cable that came with the monitor. It also was really difficult to get the cable to click into the monitor due to the same close tolerances. Finally got it in place, and the monitor fired right up.
Ran the Heaven benchmark in order to tweak the settings to where I wanted them, and also see how the monitor performs. Initially, there was a bit of flickering. Opened up Windows Display settings and maxed the Hz at QHD, and it seemed to dramatically reduce it, but there was still a teeny bit of zig zagging in shadow borders. I found the OC option in the Monitor's menu, and that immediately resolved the issue. I still followed up by maxing the Hz selection under both Windows Display options and Nvidia Control Panel, haven't looked back.
I was able to OC the monitor using Nvidia to 165(!)Hz, and have had zero flickering or stuttering. Color me impressed! I know the monitor is advertised to 155Hz, so being able to push it beyond that is a nice add on.
The ELMB function is pretty amazing too! image is buttery smooth, and I can read text on windows while moving them around. I wouldn't say it's crystal clear, but it's definitely nice!
IPS Panel looks amazing sitting next to my 4K IPS monitor as well, color between the two on default settings are very similiar, brightness is about the same as well.
I expect for the money, the backlights will hold up better than the other monitor I purchased. If anything changes or this monitor quits, I'll update this review, but I think ASUS hit the nail on the head with this one. Very happy with the monitor!
Well, in practice, it's actually awful. ELMB causes noticeable artifacting around an object moving on the screen. TFT Central shows this same problem for the IPS monitor that has ELMB, if you want a reference. Trading motion blur for reduced brightness as well as the ELMB artifacting is simply not worth the trade-off, in my opinion.
The display settings are obnoxious. There's no "normal" display mode. All of the display modes are some sort of "GameVisual" mode, except for sRGB, which disables the setting of Brightness, Contrast, etc. This makes it difficult to calibrate the display optimally.
The icing on the cake, and the reason I am ultimately returning this monitor, is the dead pixel issue I encountered. This could easily be just an unlucky panel, but I personally do not wish to have a monitor with pixels noticeably not working.

Les plus :
- La dalle IPS procure de belles couleurs, contrairement aux dalles TN. Si vous voulez un moniteur de jeu mais aussi pour pouvoir l'utiliser quotidiennement, c'est agréable.
- 280hz : c'est vraiment super smooth, venant d'un 144hz, on voit vraiment la différence (ceux disent qu'il n'y en a pas mentent ou n'en ont jamais utilisé). Même sans activer le blur reduction, 280hz c'est assez élevé pour ne pas avoir trop de flous de mouvement. Je n'utilise pas l'adaptive sync, car je joue surtout à des jeux compétitifs.
- L'ergonomie et la qualité de fabrication : je ne m'attendais pas moins de Asus, on peut le tourner dans tous les sens. Le moniteur est beau et bien construit.
- L'OSD : plein de paramètres pour pouvoir le configurer comme il faut.
Les moins :
- Parfois, après que l'écran s'allume ou revient de veille, il se peut que l'écran devienne noir puis revient à la normal (serait-ce du à l'overclocking en 280hz). Ca me le fait 1 fois puis plus rien.
- Trop d'overshooting en overdrive 100 : pour atteindre 1ms de temps réponse, il faut mettre l'overdrive à 100. Trop de ghosting avec ce paramètre. en 80, plus de ghosting mais c'est toujours assez rapide.
- La petite diode qui montre que l'écran est allumé, et bien elle éclaire pas beaucoup !
C'est vraiment un super écran gamer, mais aussi à l'aise avec d'autre utilisation. J'ai fait pas mal de recherche sur les derniers écrans IPS 240hz+, et je suis plus que satisfait d'avoir pris celui là, même si le MSI Optix MAG251RX est plus rapide (voir forum blurbusters), a de meilleurs couleurs (possibilité d'avoir 10 bits en couleurs), j'ai préféré celui ci car plus sobre et meilleur ergonomie. J'avais envisagé aussi le Alienware AW2520HF, mais apparemment c'est le moins bon des trois.
Au final, pour ceux qui jouent à des jeux compétitifs et qui peuvent atteindre plus de 280 fps, sans pour autant sacrifier le côté utilisation bureautique, foncez !
Creo que fue una mala compra, también note que de lado pierde el color a pesar de tener un ángulo de 178 de visión, las bocinas son una broma no se escuchan aunque tengas todo el volumen, tal vez si no hubiera comprado el otro monitor podría decir que este es regular pero sinceramente al comprarlos esta muy por debajo, mi antiguo monitor Asus tiene mejor colores que esté, solo lo compré porque quería más hz pero al comprar con mi otro monitor de los mismos hz clonar las pantallas y poner un juego, este monitor no tuvo la misma calidad y hasta dudo que tenga los 165 hz porque notaba muy entrecortada la imagen. No lo recomiendo mejor compra algo de más calidad
From 144hz to 280hz was not a night and day difference but you could see that everything was more buttery smooth.
Bezels are very clean.
IPS is great.
I’m just here to recommend you this monitor
However this is where you begin seeing diminishing returns.
60 -> 144 = Dear god I can see in slow motion and there's huge reduction in input lag. My movements feel so light!
144 -> 240/280 = yeah stuff is noticeably smoother and things feel a tad more responsive I guess
240 vs. 280 = I can barely tell the difference between the two settings.
Say for instance I'm lost in thought walking down the street and there's just some dude with a monitor standing at the corner. They offer me a reward if I could correctly tell if it's 240 or 280hz. There would be a 50/50 chance that I'd answer correctly.
-280hz. That's why you're buying this, right?
-IPS. This too, probably.
-G-Sync VRR. No more tearing.
-No thick power cord to route along a desk
-Relatively affordable for what it is
-Joystick on the monitor for easy OSD navigation. Every monitor should have one of these.
-Can only adjust overdrive in increments of 20 to a max of 100
-No in-menu gamma adjustment
-HDR reproduction is meh. Treat this as a normal monitor with perks.
-Can't adjust overdrive when ELMB backlight strobing is enabled.
-Noticeable crosstalk when ELMB is enabled at framerates below 280. Very visible artifacts and ghosting.
-Backlight uniformity on my unit isn't perfect. Not enough to bother me in-game but enough to notice on white web pages (like now as I'm typing this review).
A noticeable upgrade from 144? Sure why not.
