Sentiment Score 30%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
ASUS TUF Gaming VG249Q1A is great for gaming because it has a low input lag, a high refresh rate, and superb response times. The smaller screen size and 1080p resolution are somewhat limiting for work and media consumption because there's less space for multitasking. It isn't recommended for content creation because it doesn't have full sRGB coverage, and it has trouble displaying yellows accurately, even after calibration.
