Really good price. Haven't seen a 24" w/ these specs before so it looks to be a new panel. $229 is a fantastic price given current conditions.

I'm curious how this compares to the ASUS VG249Q, I just bought that but think I'll give this one a try as well and see which I like better

Is there anyone that owns this monitor that can give some feedback? Can't find many online reviews but seems like a good price.

Got this monitor for about 2 weeks now, replacing a 60hz tn panel. Im impressed with the colors. Speakers are terrible and to be expected. HDR mode is meh. Its bright even for 250nits. And for $230 it's a good deal. Very satisfied with this monitor.

Just got one and set it up, thanks to the OP!

Its a nice monitor, only issue I have is the arm that holds the monitor up is very skinny, so the monitor shakes a bit when I type.

Also, the best buy site shows there's 2 USB 3.0 on the side of the monitor, but there isn't any on mine.

Anyone else have these issues?

I recommend an iPad Pro with an otterbox case and screen protector for a child. The experience is cheaper and better than Windows alternatives. Also, you can probably pick up a Used 2018 iPad Pro off Kijiji for about $800-950 depending on the size.

It's not 1440.. Awesome refresh rate but annoying resolution, means seeing less stuffs in the screen.

Sold out but you guys didn't miss anything in this deal.
