SonicMaster MX299Q 29" 2560x1080 IPS Ultra Widescreen Ultra Slim Bezel LED Monitor - Black with

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% wider than a Full HD monitor.

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 extremely accurate color reproduction that makes the MX299Q ideally suited for both professional and home use. A 178-degree wide viewing angles also ensures minimal color distortion for enhanced screen sharing.

The MX299Q features an ultra-slim profile measuring just 16.4mm at its thinnest point. ASUS Designo Series MX monitors have received numerous design accolades that include the 2012 Japan Good Design Award. The MX299Q also won a 2013 CES Innovations Awards in the Video Displays category.

The ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultra-wide 21:9 Cinematic monitor features ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. A combination of advanced 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 & Olufsen ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip that delivers incredible audio fidelity through the two built-in 3-watt stereo speakers for rich and satisfying sound.

Considering its slender form factor, adding powerful audio to MX299Q 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. MX299Q uses up to 5W amplifiers per channel, with speakers embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more powerful and striking sound.

Reviews helped

So after reading the reviews on this monitor I at first didn't buy this... however the monitor I did buy was out of stock so ended up with it anyway. I read 1 review before about it falling to bits... now I'm not sure what he was doing with it... dragging it through a field or whatever.

I have now used this monitor for a while... switching between its DVI and HD port on a daily basis. From working and playing games everything seems perfect for what I need. Speakers give good quality sound. Picture and colour is great. The only problem is I now want to buy another...


Poor quality

Screen itself is great, but quality of structure could be improved.

After having used mine for a year soon, things are starting to fall apart. The front silver panel (which is useless anyway) suddenly just fell off one day. Though, it was easy to put back with glue.
Now I can start noticing other parts become more loose aswell, there's a little gap between a plate of plastic and the screen itself on the sides. And the single arm is starting to become loose from the bottom stand.
Another issue I've been having is that the screen tends to wiggle when typing with the keyboard or using the mouse, since the stand is not very robust.

There's perhaps not very much to expect from a pair of monitor speakers, but they're really not any good.


First Impressions

I don't normally write reviews but I have to with this one. I do a lot of work at home and in the office using spreadsheets, my office setup is two monitors. Someone suggested getting a large screen and looking through the Overclockers site and reading the recommendations on this monitor I opted to buy.
Delivery great (as is normal with Overclockers). I had one query with tech support when it arrived before I had opened the box and that was cleared up in no time, the guys that answer the phone are very very good and know their stuff.
So, connecting etc, very simple and looks good. But when I first started up with Windows 8.1 was simply amazed at the clarity, it is running on full res and is crystal clear. Working on two spreadsheets is a breeze and much simpler than two screens.
I connected the speakers, and being no expert, I do not notice any difference from my old speaker setup when playing music from ITunes, it is perfectly good enough for me. I also save space as I do not have speakers to position on my desk.
Any of you looking at a two screen setup should seriously think about looking at a screen like this, the cost of two screens and this one is comparable.
I received this today and notice on the Overclockers site that this is now out of stock so I consider myself lucky. Let's hope they get more of the same quality in as I am sure that this is a seller.

p.s. Thanks to the other reviewers who helped me decide to buy this monitor!


Simply amazing

Coming from a 120Hz monitor to this I was worried that I wouldn't be able to 'change' but I didn't have to worry. The image quality, colours and viewing angles more than make up for the lack of smoothness in games.

The built in speakers are pretty decent too.


Buy one now!!!

Mine arrived this morning...

I'm now basking in the radiance of it's perfection :D

All I can say is it's picture quality is truly mind blowing!!!!!


Love this monitor soooo MUCH !!!!

Was a BIG Ascer Fan boy, then friend told be about this beauty.... It's money worth spending and Titanfall looks so F**King Amazing.



fantastic moniter this is the next natural step up for a gammer from a 24 inch moniter its brilliant .if your gonna get a 29 inch for gamming this has got to be the one picture is supurb



As others have said, this is a brilliant monitor. Something to bare in mind is that 2560x1080p only runs on DVI not HDMI. Apart from that 10/10, no issues at all, looks amazing and performs even better. A****


Very nice!

As the previous review described this is one cool monitor, especially if you use AutoCAD or any design software.
The extra screen real estate is strange at first but running windows 8 you soon embrace the 21:9 format.

I did think of getting a double screen set up but I much prefere this screen instead, no black bars or room taking from your desk that two monitors would bring.

The speakers are nice, better than standard but no replacement for a good setup. Tho most people now use a good set of head phones, I am still happy with the sound from the monitor.

I did want a better res than 1080p but the form factor lends itself well,
All in all a good buy and I highly recommend this monitor!



This thing is absolutely amazing.

The monitor itself is a work of art. Looks beautiful.
I can't complain about the quality of the images/video, as they are spot on and really sharp.
I haven't tried the onboard sound system as I'm using headphones, but there's no reason why I shouldn't trust it to be good.
