Asus unveiled a new ultra-wide 29-inch LED monitor at CES 2013. The widescreen MX299Q boasts a 21:9 aspect ratio, 2,560×1,080 IPS panel, and should be available for sale in the first quarter of 2013 at $599.
The MX299Q monitor has a slim profile with sundial-style stand, a frameless edge-to-edge screen, and built-in speakers co-developed by Bang & Olufsen, ICEpower, and Asus. Ports on the monitor include HDMI/MHL, dual-link DVI, and DisplayPort.
The MX299Q’s 2,560×1,080 resolution falls short of the 2,560×1,440 resolution other “extreme definition” monitors have but when compared to the Dell UltraSharp U2711 the Asus MX299Q looks like a worthy competitor for its price range.
