From an ASUS press release:

ASUS ZenScreen MB249C is designed to give multitasking a boost. Its large, frameless 23.8-inch 1080p IPS panel offers 178° viewing angles for multiple users and an anti-glare coating for more comfortable work in bright environments. Meanwhile, a sleek 7.6 mm profile, 2.8 kg weight and integrated carrying handle offer easy portability around the home, office and co-working spaces. Plus, multiple stand options offer wide versatility, so users can configure the MB249C to meet a variety of needs. Additionally, twin 1 W speakers with amplifier technology deliver immersive sound when watching videos, listening to music, or gaming. Its flexibility can turn nearly any space into a nook for both productivity and entertainment.

ZenScreen MB249C is designed to enable users to make the most out of nearly any workspace or living space. It features a fold-out kickstand that also doubles as a carrying handle, a C-clamp arm, and a partition hook kit. The kickstand securely props the monitor up at 12–60° on any flat surface for quick and easy setup in the home, office, or in shared co-working spaces. The monitor can also be clamped to the edge of a table or mounted on a cubicle partition to maximize desktop space. The C-clamp arm offers 5–20° tilt, -15–20° swivel, 0–90° pivot, and extension/retraction adjustments of up to 180 mm. A quick-release mechanism on the arm makes it easy to mount or detach the monitor. The partition hook kit offers 150 mm of height adjustment, so ZenScreen MB249C can be raised or lowered to eye level for perfect viewing.

ZenScreen MB249C is bristling with connectivity features including a full-function USB-C port with 60 W power delivery, an HDMI port, and an earphone jack. It also includes the TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Blue Light Filter and ASUS Flicker-Free technology. The Blue Light Filter protects viewers from potentially harmful blue light, while Flicker-Free technology allows for more comfortable viewing, especially when spending long hours in front of the display.

ZenScreen MB249C is extremely power-efficient and meets ENERGY STAR certification requirements. Plus, the monitor is FSC Mix-certified, thanks to its sustainable packaging.
