Ohhhh we love a good value gaming monitor and Asus have a great one releasing right now in NZ called the VE248HR!
Living up to the epic reviews set by the previous generation VE248H (no R) is going to be tough but Asus have kitted this new monitor with a faster refresh rate now hitting that coveted 1ms response time for the smoothest visuals even in your most action packed moments 🙂
While this might not be the slimmest 1920×1080 gaming monitor that Asus makes it stands solid on a desk and can take a decent knock, the buttons along the lower left protrude so you can easily hit the right ones without having to turn the monitor to see them and the matt panel does a good job defusing reflections while producing some great colours 🙂 It’s also sporting 100×100 VESA mounts for those of us that enjoy multi monitor madness and even has a pair of small built in 1-watt speakers. Inputs and outputs wise you’ll find a HDMI (no MHL sorry), a DVI and even a VGA – I can understand why they kept a VGA with this one as the monitor is really well priced and would make a fine choice in an office, even if it’s just a little overkill for most!
We loved the previous model and we’re pretty sure this new one will be equally enjoyable – keep your eyes on the GGPC Computers Blog for the latest updates, gameplay tests and more!
Update: The Asus VE248HR Gaming Monitor is available now!
