Asus has launched the MX229Q, a 29” monitor that first made an appearance at this year’s Computex conference. It features an AH-IPS panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 21:9 that offers a substantial increase to horizontal work space and matches the human field of view.
The MX229Q also provides a brightness of 300 cd/m2, 178° / 178° viewing angles, a dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000,000:1 and should offer comparable performance to the LG EA93 (opens in new tab) since it also features a LG manufactured panel. The monitor also includes 3W stereo speakers, a tilt range of +20° to -5° and offers DisplayPort, dual-link DVI, HDMI and 3.5 mm audio inputs.
The ASUS MX229Q will be on sale with a retail price of €470 ($614).
