ASUS has unveiled a new monitor to their wide range of LCD monitors some time ago, with the unveiling of the ASUS MX25AQ. This 25-inch monitor has a beautiful, frameless and minimalistic design and can be used in any context and living space. The ultra-slim profile occupies very little desktop space and the bezel is just 0.1 cm thick, like other ASUS Designo MX Series displays such as the larger ASUS MX27AQ.
The panel is an AH-IPS LED-backlight monitor, which will offer you great colors and viewing angles (178/178 in fact). Furthermore, the resolution is 2560 x 1440 pixels (WQHD), which is great for a 25-inch monitor and you’ll get plenty of screen real estate and benefit from sharper images than a similarly sized 1080p monitor (Full HD). The cheaper, older 1080p model, ASUS MX259H, has over 1000 reviews on Amazon.com with an average of 4.3 stars, which is very good, and this monitor will probably do even better.
Brightness is 300 cd/m2, which is standard and it has a 5ms response time, which should be unnoticeable for most people. Also, 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut is covered by this monitor.
The ASUS MX25AQ has two HDMI inputs, one HDMI/MHL input and one DisplayPort 1.2 port, which is plenty and allows you to connect the monitor to multiple devices. The monitor is also flicker-free, which is a must-have for many people due to headaches and eyestrain. ASUS Eye Care Technology with Low Blue Light is also supported, if you want to take extra good care of your precious eyes and protect them from harmful blue light. Also note that the stand can be tilt-adjusted only.
Since this monitor is not intended to be used for gaming purposes exclusively, it also comes equipped with two built-in 3W stereo speakers, providing great and rich sound, and has ASUS SonicMaster technology, which is co-devoloped with ICEpower and Bang & Olufsen technology, for an exclusive, premium and immersive sound. This is very handy for people who don’t use headsets or headphones and do not need to have dedicated PC speakers connected to the PC all the time.
The price for this monitor is currently around $350 and is widely available around the world.
