Consensus

our Verdict

Reviewers were pleased with the ASUS VG246H, recommending it for entry-level gaming and general office use. They found that this unit’s 60Hz native refresh rate can be overclocked to 75Hz and contended that it’s suitable for casual gaming. Tests revealed that the text is clear enough for office users. Serious gamers seeking a monitor with a higher refresh rate should check out our ASUS TUF Gaming VG249Q1A review. Analysts at RTINGS praised this monitor’s decent peak brightness and reflection handling, recommending it for general use. They hailed this unit’s FreeSync technology, saying that it reduces screen tearing. Additionally, they praised the stand, which supports a wide range of adjustments. Monitor Nerds analysts applauded the wide IPS viewing angles of this 24-inch gaming monitor, noting that this model is suitable for co-op gaming, and provides wider viewing angles than TN panel-type monitors such as the ASUS TUF Gaming VG258QM. However, they were unimpressed by this monitor’s 60Hz native refresh rate, and they were unhappy with the absence of USB and DisplayPort ports on this unit.
