Product Overview **SCAN EXCLUSIVE** G-Sync enabled! No more tearing in games!!

Please note, these cannot be guaranteed next day delivery!

Supplied with displayport cable

Conventional 60Hz LCDs show extensive motion blur, and can be distracting when playing games with fast movement.

NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ eliminates screen tearing, VSync input lag, and stutter. To achieve this revolutionary feat, we build a G-SYNC module into the monitor, allowing G-SYNC to synchronize the monitor to the output of the GPU, instead of the GPU to the monitor, resulting in a tear-free, faster, smoother experience that redefines gaming. Features • Ultra smooth action with 144Hz rapid refresh rate and 1ms (GTG) response time
• With an 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) and 350cd/m² of brightness, the ASUS VG248QE delivers life-like visuals in Full HD 1920 x 1080
• A comfortable viewing with ergonomic design for swivel, tilt, pivot, and height adjustment

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

NVIDIA G-Sync
NVIDIA G-Sync
Date Issued: 17th Dec 2013

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

3XS Modified 24" Asus VG248QE, G-SYNC, Black LED Monitor, 1920x1080, 80000000:1, 350cd/m², 1ms, VESA, DPort is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 11/10 This monitor is brilliant. I bought this simply because I spent 2k+ on the rest of my rig and it would have killed me to see a single tear or stutter. Like the other reviews have said this screen is BRIGHT when first turned on. Before I adjusted any setting within the control panel I had turn the thing right down. Ketsuekiame's setting I agree with but I have the digital vibrancy set a little lower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for gamers I was looking to a new monitor and came across this monitor. This monitor offers no stuttering, lag or tearing. Since i have got the monitor i don't think i could ever go back to a normal monitor. Its worthy to be on any desk. Scan have produced a quality modded monitor without any problems thus far, so i would recommend getting it from scan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You won't be able to go back to a "normal" monitor. I'll start by saying I will mostly be reviewing the GSYNC modification rather than the VG248QE as there are enough reviews of this monitor out there already. However, there are a couple of things about the monitor itself I think need pointing out. The first thing I noticed when I turned this monitor on was that it burned with the brightness of a thousand suns. This monitor is *ridiculously* bright and washed out under the default settings. The second thing I noticed, is that there is minimal OSD control. You can only adjust brightness. Do not be dismayed, after spending an hour setting the monitor up using the nVidia control panel I'm more than happy with the result. For those interested, I will provide instructions on how I've set mine up. Open nVidia control panel and go to "Adjust Desktop Colour Settings" making sure the "Use NVIDIA settings" option is selected. Switch the colour channel to "All Channels". Set Brightness to +35% Set Contrast to +27% Then modify each individual colour channel gamma setting: Red: 0.61 Green: 0.69 Blue: 0.75 Finally, set "Digital vibrance" to +60% and Hue to 0. On the monitor OSD, set the brightness to 25. Be warned, every time you update the nVidia driver, these settings are lost. Ok, so onto the GSYNC modification, I set the monitor refresh rate to 144hz (why wouldn't you!) and enabled VRR in the nVidia control panel. This is the first time I've had a high refresh rate monitor, so even the smoothness of the mouse and window movement on the desktop was a pleasant surprise! But to really see GSYNC in action, I decided to open up a couple of benchmarks. I used the Benchmark built into BioShock Infinity and a free benchmarking application call Valley Benchmark. Both of these pieces of software have framerates that range (with highest settings) from 27fps to 150fps The first to run was BioShock Infinite. I sat here and stared intensely at the monitor, waiting to see any tear or stutter, but it never came. In fact, it ran that smooth I thought I'd set the benchmark up wrong, so I double checked the settings and ran it again. Nothing, it appeared to me as though the frame rate was vsync'd at around 70-75fps. I checked the benchmark log to check the min/max fps. Min 44fps, Max 137fps I ran the Valley benchmark (which has an fps counter) and during the benchmark could see the frame-rate fluctuating quite largely through each scene and for the most part, GSYNC handled this as well as it did in the BioShock Infinite benchmark. There was a slight stutter in the Valley benchmark as it hit 25fps. Having read up on GSYNC, this was expected as it doesn't really work below 30fps. However, the stuttering was not as pronounced as you expect. As I was watching for it, I could see it. If I hadn't been, I might have raised the question "Did it just stutter?" But I wouldn't have been sure. Within the operating limits given by nVidia, GSYNC performed flawlessly in removing tearing and stuttering. The next thing I had to do was, test this in an actual game. Battlefield 4 was the favourite, high quality graphics, fluctuating frame-rates, lots of action! So into the settings I went, set everything as high as it would go and, importantly, you have to set the refresh rate in game as 144 with vsync enabled. Without doing this, it won't work. As soon as the game loaded, there was an immediate, noticeable difference going from 60fps vsync to 144(max) GSYNC. According to the fps counter in game, the FPS was sitting 80-100fps depending on what was happening around me (this was a fairly big map). The biggest improvement noticed though, the disappearance of input lag. It was just simply, gone. Moving the mouse around in circles as well, also showed that as the fps changed, there was no tearing or stuttering to be seen, but at the moment I was in high frame-rate territory, so I connected to a server with a massive amount of players in a smaller map. At this point, the fps was fluctuating wildly between 40 to 100fps and *you could not tell*. There was nothing to indicate that your fps was anything other than synced to your monitor refresh rate. No stutter, no tearing, no input lag. Only the fps counter let me know what was truly happening to the frame-rate. I cried a tear of joy, before fully launching myself into battle. If I had to say anything negative about this; 1. The monitor is too bright. the first switch on is like detonating a nuclear warhead in your room and you have to rely on the nVidia control panel to get good colour settings. 2. The GSYNC power adapter in the monitor makes a high-pitch whining noise. Turning the monitor off with the monitor power button stops this, but it is annoying. Two other people have told me they can't hear it and one other person told me they could. It may be just above most people's threshold of hearing. 3. It's expensive. The mod itself almost doubles the price of the monitor. I'm hoping as this becomes more popular, the price will come down. Everyone (who's into gaming) needs a GSYNC monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade for gamers Well what can I say? Needed to upgrade my gaming monitor from some very tired looking old LCD monitors (pre-LED models) and this is such a step up even on image quality and brightness alone. Then the icing on the cake is the GSYNC, no tearing at all in sight on any game I have played - running over 100fps on BF4 for example and it is a smooth as butter throughout. Even in Windows desktop the enhanced refresh rate is immediately apparent dragging application windows around. Matches up well with high DPI gaming mice, the action on screen is like you are connected directly to the game with no lag at all. 3D Vision is also a nice to have, though quite costly when you factor in the glasses after the monitor purchase - but it certainly adds a dimension to even some of my older games. Very happy with the purchase, only real downside is the loss of DVI/HDMI for other devices but can always use one of my old screens for that now ;)

Do you include a display port cable with this product?

Asked by: Mich01
It does include a display port, but make sure your GPU is normal display port, my GTX 690 has a mini - display port, thus i had to buy another wire that fits into my GPU and monitor.
