Enhanced Design and Technology

The Asus MX Series design was inspired by the concentric style of a sundial created over a millennia ago. The Asus design processes follow a similar line of thinking: simple yet empowering.

The Asus design team found inspiration in the sundial concept, and crafted a stand that symbolises complete flexibility, professionalism, and meticulous art.

A masterful culmination of enhanced technology and artistic design, the Designo series MX299Q ultra-wide 21:9 cinematic monitor represents the current state of the art in PC monitors.

Ultra-wide Resolution Enhances Work and Play

With a display area equivalent to that of two 17-inch (5:4 aspect ratio) monitors placed alongside each other, the Asus designo series MX299Q ultra-wide 21:9 cinematic monitor has a display area 33 per cent wider than a Full HD monitor.

A sleek 29-inch AH-IPS display with an ultra-wide 21:9 ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution, the MX229Q delivers a 33 per cent larger display area compared to a full HD monitor for the better theater-like home entertainment. What’s more, the MX299Q has an edge-to-edge, frameless cinematic display for an ideal multi display setup and better design.

Better viewing experience

The 21:9 aspect ratio gives you more screen real estate for working with multiple windows side-by-side as you would with a secondary display.

The 2560 x 1080 resolution also means there are no black bars above and below the image when watching widescreen 2.35:1 movies and gamers can also enjoy games in immersive cinematic widescreen.

The LED-backlit AH-IPS display has very accurate colour reproduction that makes the MX299Q ideally suited for both professional and home use. A 178-degree wide viewing angles also ensures minimal colour distortion for enhanced screen sharing.

Highly subtle

The MX299Q features an ultra-slim profile measuring just 16.4 mm at its thinnest point.

Exclusive Asus features give you the most versatility.

Asus MultiFrame software to keep your desktop neat and organised when managing multiple windows at once.

QuickFit virtual scale functionality comes with a simple hotkey, so you can preview your photos and documents on screen in their actual sizes prior to printing; or work with an alignment grid to ensure everything is straight and true.

Premium, immersive SonicMaster audio, co-developed with Bang an Olufsen ICEpower

This monitor features Asus SonicMaster audio technology, co-developed with Bang and Olufsen ICEpower. A combination of enhanced audio hardware and professional audio processing, SonicMaster refines every acoustic detail to deliver crystal clear sound with richer, more distinct vocals and wide frequency range. The MX299Q has an embedded Bang and Olufsen ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip that delivers higher audio fidelity through the two built-in 3-watt stereo speakers for rich and satisfying sound.

Comes with Asus Splendid, that is built upon a colour engine that automatically analyses and determines the nature and parameters of current visual tasks, adjusting display parameters to ensure optimal colour accuracy and image fidelity.

Robust Connectivity

The Asus MX299Q ultra-wide 21:9 cinematic monitor display has an array of connectivity options for wide compatibility with a range of multimedia devices. Video inputs include DisplayPort, Dual-link DVI and HDMI/MHL, with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) providing a single-cable video and power connection for compatible smartphones and tablets.

I've had this several months now and thought it better to write the review after the honeymoon period:)
This monitor has *very* good colour rendering, a better contrast ratio than lots of other models (that overstate the contrast ratio in marketing hype) and of course it looks very nice on a desk.
Touch Sensitive controls take some getting used to.

What it does cope with really well is photographic material and high definition multimedia with small to moderate changes in horizontal panning.
Text is extremely clear and pin sharp in static images,display brightness is more than adequate and easy on the eye with far less eyestrain.

Another reviewer mentioned they get slight light bleed on this panel.
I can also confirm that on mine the bottom left (when displaying a black raster) does appear to allow more white led light through the lcd.
I'm of the opinion this is a panel seating issue getting past QC.

On the whole I'm happy with this when compared to other offerings at similar prices and find it suits well for everyday use.
The screen is far more readable for text than other monitors I've used at the same price,resolution and size.
It is also is nice to look at something designed in a way that is unobtrusive rather than the usual obligatory black plastic box.

PSU is rated at 64.98 watts,so I imagine this panels improved image quality/technology requires a little more power.
There is an Eco setting in the menu at the cost of performance,turning it on seems fine,if not better for the eyes at night when watching catch up tv online etc.

Style Name: 2 x HDMI VGASize: 23-inch 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.

Style Name: 2 x HDMI VGASize: 27-inch Verified Purchase
I purchased this screen because I fancied an upgrade from my previous 23" TN panel that i had been using for around 2 years previously. It did come with a European plug as someone has previously stated, so you can use a spare clover cable, EU to UK adapter or do what I did and rewire the existing lead to a UK plug.

-One of the main features I was looking for was an IPS/PLS panel on the new screen as some of my friends have the Samsung
Galaxy S3 (Highly Recommended) which has a beautiful picture on it! The colours on IPS panels just jump out at you, there is such a difference between this and a cheap TN screen. That's one of the primary reasons I chose this. I haven't seen any signs of ghosting on this except the tiniest amount when going quickly from red to green (Opposite on the spectrum) not a big enough point to sway my 5/5 decision

-The 1080p resolution is more than enough for me. I use this screen for both Xbox and light PC gaming, and the Xbox only outputs 1080p. 27 inches is a good size for any desk, although you definitely shouldn't be setting with your eyes inches from this thing. In terms of I/O on the back you have 2 x HDMI, VGA, 3.5mm input and output. For those of you looking to use a DVI connection the screen comes with a DVI to HDMI included.

-The speakers have a lot of promotion behind them and I must say they are impressive. I haven't looked into the technology, however I can tell you they manage to fill my room which I was stunned by. It doesn't sound anything like the tinny speakers that you'd expect to come free on a monitor. Sound levels are good too, I usually have it on around 70/100 as I find this a comfortable volume to listen at. Another handy addition is the 3.
