The Asus VE248H is a middle-priced monitor. It features a twisted nematic (TN) display which is considered as one of the best for gaming due to its fast responsiveness and low motion blur. While most monitors go with a 1-year warranty, Asus ships this model with a 3-year warranty which suggests high build quality.
The display diagonal is 24 inches and the monitor itself is 22.4 x 16.1 x 7.9 inches. With such a size, it still weighs less than 10 pounds.
The Asus VE248H has a Full HD 1080 resolution with LED backlight. It features a quick response time of 2ms which means that it works great in reducing ghosting, providing a smoother image. Playing racing video games is a real pleasure with this monitor. However, it has a standard 60Hz refresh rate, but powerful processors are intended to work with monitors that have higher refresh rate value.
The VE248H appears to be universal for many types of content thanks to the aspect control feature which includes 6 preset video modes: Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB, and Standard. The intelligent splendid video technology uses a special smart system to automatically optimize the picture quality with better brightness, sharpness, etc.
The monitor also features a high 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio thanks to which it’s able to reproduce a dynamic and lifelike picture.
However, among all these pleasant Asus VE248H specs, there is also one significant drawback. Since it has a TN panel, the viewing angle isn't wide, so you need to sit right in front of the monitor to see a clear picture.
The Asus VE248H monitor includes a couple of 1W stereo RMS speakers. Obviously, they are quite weak, but still will probably be appreciated by those who value versatility.
The monitor stands on a pretty unusual, rounded stand. Thanks to such a shape, it uses free space on the desk more economically. However, the stand is easily detachable, so the monitor can also be mounted on the monitor arms or wall via 100 x 100 VESA mount. Plus, the monitor has a slim design. If you look at it in the profile, you will notice that it has an almost uniform thickness and isn’t bulky at all. It allows for more placement opportunities.
The frame around the screen has an average thickness. The whole monitor’s casing is made of thick and durable black-colored plastic which ensures stability and durability. The frame, as well as the stand, have a glossy black finish.
The speakers can be found on the monitor’s top panel. The ports, located on the rear panel of the monitor, include such connectivity options: HDMI, VGA, DVI-D, and audio out (3.5mm).
On the right side of the bottom bezel, you will see 6 control buttons. They allow you to turn the monitor on/off, open up the menu with video modes, etc. (you can find out about the other buttons’ functions from the Asus VE248H manual).
Finishing this Asus VE248H review, I would like to note that this monitor is a great solution for those who don’t search for a 4K model with bells and whistles. The VE248H is a simple Full HD monitor that offers those basic features that you expect to get for the price and even some more. Thanks to the TN panel, you will get your video games looking great. 6 different viewing modes will improve the picture in accordance with the kind of content that you are watching.
