PG259QNR is a 24-inch 16:9 display and therefore has a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 or 1080p. The bezel on this display is extremely thin, measuring just a few mm. The bottom-edge is somewhat thicker but this can still be regarded as sleek and minimalist. It should be noted when inside Windows, there is a 5mm black digital border between the edge and the usable area. The viewable area does not fit precisely to the very edge as you can see on the “Viewing Angles Page”.
Opting for a flat surface rather than a curve which has now become very popular, the surface texture avoids being reflective which we’re very pleased to see – instead we have a smooth, lustreless display.
Not straying from the gaming-esque design which this monitor is intended for, the reverse of the panel has a multi-texture style to it which looks great, it’s just a shame this will be hidden from sight during usage.
The ROG team has also equipped our monitor to feature a large ROG logo which has RGB functionality – this can also be tuned into Aura Sync to coordinate with the rest of your ASUS components.
The stand features a sliding mechanism which allows for ~120mm of height adjustment ,-5°~20° of tilt movement is also available.
To access the OSD settings there is a small bronze joystick on the back panel with a series of buttons which allows navigation through the menu system.
ASUS provide two methods to make use of this monitor – by attaching to the desk with the provided clamp, or by using the conventional method of using feet to rest on the desk.
These feet are sturdy, strong and consume very little space on the desk.
Tucked away underneath the backpanel there are an interesting assortment of ports. Available here we have:
• 1x Power port
• 1x Headphone jack
• 1x HDMI 2.0 ports
• 1x DisplayPort 1.4
• 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type A
• 1x USB Type-B
This should satisfy most needs but we do expect to see HDMI 2.1 on a new display like this, especially since recently released graphics cards are arriving with this new standard.
