Review Asus VP249QGR. Talking about gaming, several vendors have provided various related products through independent sub-brands. This also applies to monitors.
However, the reality is that not all products that provide features and capabilities suitable for gaming are included in this sub-brand. One of them is the Asus VP249QGR. It is not included in the ROG family, but the features it has are arguably worthy of accompanying consumers to play games. Here’s a full performance review Asus VP249QGR.
Review Asus VP249QGR Design
In fact, the Asus VP249QGR monitor has a casual design that is no different from monitors in general. Wrapped in black, it comes with a 23.8-inch screen with a fairly thin bezel apart from the bottom side. On the underside of this is the Asus logo which is quite visible, along with the DisplayPort logo and monitor indicators.
This monitor uses a circular leg, with a single lock system on the leg. Even though they are made of plastic, the legs and the support base do not require a screwdriver. The locking bolt can be tightened by hand thanks to a specially sized handle. These feet also provide an angle of movement, with 20 to 5 degrees.
Facilities & Features
Asus VP249QGR still provides the power button, and next to it there are also several other buttons for further settings. One interesting feature is Splendid, which from the start includes several profiles to suit your usage. Some of these profiles or modes consist of games, scenery, theater, sRGB, standard, night view, reading, and darkroom.
Quite a number of profiles are available, and during use differences in settings such as exposure, sharpness, or color saturation are quite noticeable. You can also adjust the intensity of the blue color so that the eyes don’t get tired quickly. If all the profiles in Splendid are not suitable, you can adjust them yourself in Settings.
To prove gaming support, the Asus VP249QGR panel with IPS comes with several features. One of them can be seen directly on the GamePlus menu via physical buttons. This monitor can display crosshairs or shots for playing FPS games, not forgetting the timer and FPS counter.
You can also directly adjust the display to more than one screen with this button. While other features that have only been seen while playing games are 144Hz refresh rate support via Adaptive-Sync and AMD FreeSync. As far as the gaming experience goes, the screen refresh rate is proven to be adaptable to games that support more than 60Hz.

For other physical interfaces, the Asus VP249QGR is quite complete. It has one DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA port each. Quite unique in the presence of a VGA port because you could say this port is very long. On the other hand, it seems that not only Asus is thinking of keeping it installed.
This monitor also supports Vesa mounting, or standard for direct mounting on walls. On the rear body, four holes are immediately visible for attaching brackets. One more thing that shouldn’t be overlooked is the 2W stereo speakers, a solution for users who don’t have extra speakers or just use a headset.
Now is the time to talk about user experience. Asus VP249QGR runs at the highest resolution Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels with a response time of 4ms. For playing games, it is able to produce slick visual quality, even on par with gaming monitors in general. Likewise, the color sharpness is quite accurate, not forgetting the simple Splendid profile settings.
The response time available can still support you to play several online games to those that are competitive. When used for watching videos, this monitor is able to display the right color palette, especially if you use the Theater Mode profile which offers blue predominantly. The thin bezel concept also makes the screen experience more extensive.
The only drawback that we saw was the loss of support for lifting or lowering the screen position. This capability in our opinion should be available on monitors that start at USD205 for the market in my country. On the other hand, the price of the Asus VP249QGR is one of the affordable ones in its class, especially when we compare it to the features and screen size.
Our final conclusion, the Asus VP249QGR can be an option for consumers who want to have a monitor with gaming capabilities, but the available funds do not reach the price of a gaming monitor on the market today.
