Product Description

Product Description

Inspired by millennia of artistic legacy, the new Designo MX Series sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design. The MX239H features an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ technology for incredible visuals. In addition, built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers immersive premium audio performance. The 2012 Good Design Award-winning ultra-slim and ergonomic design can be tilted to provide you highly comfortable viewing experiences, while dual HDMI offers extensive connectivity options.

ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with MX239H measuring just 14.5mm at its thinnest point– thereby minimizing desk space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.

Designo MX239H features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved color accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.

Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX239H provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion during gameplay.

With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX239H augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.

ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the MX239H, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.

The Designo MX239H features ASUS SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. This ASUS-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.

Considering its slender form factor, adding powerful audio to MX239H presented a challenge. Nonetheless, the display features up to 32mm diameter speakers for greater and smoother sound impact with better bass performance. It also offers a resonance chamber of up to 100cc, expanding monitor sound range to new extremes. A built-in amplifier powers speaker sound reproduction, just like a car engine with more horsepower means better performance can be attained. MX239H uses up to 5W amplifiers per channel, with speakers embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more powerful and striking sound.

ASUS MX239H delivers outstanding images and stunning graphics that deserve superior sound to complete multimedia experiences whether watching movies, gaming, or listening to music. It features state-of-the-art audio technology from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, with great sound packed into its slim form factor to create incredibly engaging sound quality. This means no investment in additional speakers is needed.

Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® technology on MX239H has been developed specifically for compact media products to create excellent sound even in confined spaces. The superior sound quality is a result of innovative technology, ample power delivery, and months of optimizing and fine-tuning by audio engineers. Typically, powerful sound equals high energy consumption, but that’s not the case with MX239H. The screen’s embedded Class D MobileSound 3 technology is highly energy efficient, converting up to 92 % of power input to useful audio output.

The Designo MX239H supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras to enrich users’ entertainment experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, with minor niggles here and there 10 Aug 2013
By Jake
Verified Purchase
Overall, this is a great monitor. Great image/colour, great for gaming (Xbox & PC), visually very pleasing and the Sound is great.

There was a few reasons I decided to go with this monitor:

- Lowest response time for an IPS panel (5ms) which "supposedly" makes a bit of difference for gaming - Less ghosting, less input lag.
- 60hz. I am primarily using this for Xbox and mid end PC gaming, so I would not see 'any'? difference with a 120hz TN monitor - Xbox is locked at 60hz and the games I play on PC are rarely capable of above 60fps.
- IPS has better colour than TN panels - Yay for good colour.
- The dual HDMI comes in great use for me - Have my laptop and Xbox hooked up at the same time.
- Looks very slick - Best looking monitor I could find?
- Good sound quality - Sound like any built in TV speakers as far as I can tell.
- It had good reviews - No reviews of dead pixels, bleeding etc. I'd rather spend that little bit extra to have everything working smoothly.
- Good size and resolution. Picture looks sharp - Wouldn't recommend going above 24" for 1920x1080.

The reason I haven't rated this 5 stars is for a hand full of little reasons:

- No button to instantly mute the volume.
- Touch buttons can be accidentally pressed.
- I think mine has a slight lean to the left which irritates me a bit.
- Straight from the package, I had great trouble adjusting the monitor. The adjustment stand seem to be stuck. There is a small white mark on the edge of the screen due to the struggle I had with it (Also might have caused the slight lean).
- When I was playing fifa I noticed ALLOT of ghosting. It was so obvious I don't even think you could label it as ghosting. There was a faint white mist behind players.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful monitor that is a joy to look at 25 Jan 2013
needed a quality monitor to go with my new 2012 mac mini and windows 8 old laptop and decided to go with this monitor based on its looks and specs. and wow this monitor is stunning to look at - every other monitor looks so dull in comparison.

pros:
-beautifully designed - in fact i think it is the best in the market, yes even better looking than a mac monitor but at a fraction of price. the bezel around the edge of the screen has to be seen to believed. sleek and beautiful.
-stunning screen - excellent advanced IPS screen with range of --vibrant colours and tempatures to suit ur needs.
-energy efficient
-range of inputs and outputs including 2 hdmi inputs
-excellent sound - of course external speakers are better sound wise and can be added if necessary, but the sound in the monitor here is still good enough to give a good rich sound and listen to music. so good ive decided to ditch my external speakers and keep my desk clutter free.
-lovely touch sensitive buttons
-takes up little space

cons
-not height adjustable

all in all, the best monitor you are likely to get under £250. worth every penny. way, way better looking both design wise and spec wise than the competition. Well done to the design team at Asus!

1.0 out of 5 stars Screen burned-in and flickering on one side 28 Jun 2014
By GaryT
Verified Purchase
Exactly 12 months and 1 week (1week out of warranty), the screen started to show burned-in and flickering on left-mid side of the screen. I could clearly see my Outlook email client burned into the screen. I use the screen for work only and expected this screen to last at least 3-4 years. Looking at this now I'm severely disappointed.

If asus expected this product to work as a work/multi-input device (for games etc) they should use a better display.
I'm using 2 other monitors (Dell) which are cheaper models in a 3 monitor setup, only asus have problems.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be a very good monitor 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I ordered two of these at the same time in order to use in a dual screen setup. Initially everything was good and I was very impressed with the picture quality and look of the monitor. My only slight niggle at this stage was the touch sensitive controls for the On Screen Menus and on/off which take a bit of getting used to.

After a few days one of the two monitors started refusing to turn on and the only way around this was to remove the power supply lead from the back and then put it back in again. This seemed to perform a reset and allow the monitor to turn on. This started happening more frequently so sent the monitor back to Amazon for a replacement. The other monitor of the two remained working very well.

The replacement arrived very quickly and immediately upon setting it up I noticed a quite strong yellow hue to the display and even with all settings identical to the other monitor it was clearly a much poorer screen quality or possibly a fault. Again I contacted Amazon and arranged for a replacement which was delivered quickly.

Upon setting up the 2nd replacement I soon realised that it had a different firmware installed to the other monitor which had performed excellently since day 1. There was even an important option on the on screen menus completely missing. I researched on the web if I could update the firmware without success. I then contacted ASUS and was told that updating the firmware could not be done by the user.

At this point I decided that I had no choice but to return both monitors to Amazon and after some challenges with arranging a collection they have now both gone back and I have ordered a different make and pair of monitors.

A very disappointing experience as one of the two monitors was perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touch controls
Its worth mentioning the touch controls are embossed. so rather than a difficult to use flat surface, each "button" is embossed slightly.
