4 out of 5 eggsExcellent computer monitor

Pros: Big, clean, no dead pixels, buttons are easy to use, adjustable height, can rotate in all directions, sturdy, produces little heat, excellent packaging and cables for all supported connectors included.
There is an aspect control option in the menu to switch from full screen to 1:1 for people planning on playing 1080p console games via HDMI so that the image does not appear vertically stretched.

Cons: 720p console games games cannot be stretched to fit the screen while maintaining their 16:9 aspect ratio. You have to play them shrunk to 1:1, or vertically stretched to 16:10.

Other Thoughts: I subtracted an egg because of the minor con I mentioned, which is one o the main reasons I bought this monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Display, So Much Better Than a Gaming LCD.

Pros: -1920X1200 resolution is clear and crisp
-Colors are accurate and vibrant
-Even back light is a treat with dark images

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is hands down my favorite monitor ever. If you aren't a super hardcore gamer, then this is much better to play games on then those 120Hz TN panels. You'll get much more enjoyment out of the deeper colors and higher quality than you will out of a 120Hz display.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor overall, with a couple of problems

Pros: Beautiful colors, no dead or stuck pixels, pivotable to portrait mode, and 1920x1200 (that extra vertical space makes a big difference to me).

Cons: 1st problem, only happened once: when I first connected and ran it a little under two years ago, suddenly the picture dimmed to almost nothing and a little puff of smoke rose from the back of the monitor! Kind of freaked me out, but it didn't smell like electrical smoke, the picture came back fine and it had a 5 year warranty so I figured I'd give it a chance. No recurrence of that issue--maybe it was just lint in there or something, who knows. But now I'm wondering whether that was related to this next problem, which does come back. Read on.

2nd problem: every once in a while I'll use one of the four built-in USB 3.0 ports to hook up a flash drive (usually a USB 2 device, although I recently bought a USB 3 drive and tested it as well just now) and transfer a video file to it. When the problem occurs, the USB 2 drive transfer rate is something ridiculous like 1 MB/second, and just now I tested the USB 3 drive (a Corsair Slider 64GB) and was only getting 19-20 MB/second--I think the spec for USB 3.0 is quite a bit higher, right?

You're maybe thinking, well, the drive is the problem--thing is, I took the USB 2 drive and plugged it into a USB 2 port on the front of the machine, and the estimated transfer time went from a reported 35 minutes for 2 files (total of about 2.3 GB) on the monitor's port to about 1/10 of that on the other port.

In the past the only way to fix this has been to unplug/replug the USB cable going from the monitor to the computer. Don't know whether to blame the monitor's port or the motherboard's (an ASUS P8Z68-V-LE). I know I am connected to the USB 3 port on the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Monitor

Pros: Beautiful sRGB color right out of the box! NO surreal blueish-white LED background! Great for post-processing online images. A 24" monitor with 1960x1200 ddi.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Crisp, clear, great color reproduction
USB 3.0 hub.
Easy landscape/portrait rotation.
Very stable, reliable stand.
Stand adjustments are easy and keep the monitor where positioned.
No dead pixels almost 2 years after purchase.

Cons: Rotation into portrait orientation puts USB cables at the top of the monitor.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this monitor for almost two years and have really enjoyed using it. Aside from the USB cables positioned to connect to the top of the monitor when in portrait mode, there's nothing bad to say about this monitor. Really excellent. I might have deducted one egg for the USB thing, but it does so well in every other area of performance, where it really counts, that I give it 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent sRGB Monitor

Pros: Excellent color, tonal scale, contrast and stability. USB-3 ports really come in handy for external HDs or Toasters. IPS viewing angle is outstanding. 1900X1200 screen is very nice, and makes me want another one of these to replace my tools & grid monitor that is only 1900X1080.

Cons: sRGB instead of Adobe 1998, but I knew about that before hand and no egg deducted. Also, my printer and workflow actually has to step down to sRGB for the printer anyway so that is a non-issue.

Other Thoughts: I use this monitor as the primary for photography post processing. It came out of the box way too bright and contrasty. I run a multi-monitor system and all monitors are calibrated in-house. This unit calibrated very easily, and prints come out as perfect matches to my printers. This monitor calibrated to my system perfectly on the first pass. This monitor matches my Soft Proofing image to my printer perfectly every time and saves me a ton of paper.
Several other photographers have commented on how much better this monitor looks compared to their much more expensive monitors. I have recommended this unit often.

5 out of 5 eggsBest monitor I've had.

Pros: This has really become the monitor of choice! It has been my main monitor since it has arrived, and I'm quite impressed by the monitor. I had a thought whether I wanted a 1920x1080 gaming monitor or this 1920x1200 ProArt, but I'm glad I chose the ProArt monitor. The IPS panel is fantastic! I'm not a serious gamer in the PC world, so if you're not a gamer, IPS monitor is probably the best choice, and for such an IPS monitor the PA248Q delivers great value. I do use the PS3 for Gran Turismo 7, and so far, nothing very serious about the "lag" that IPS panels tend to have while gaming or showing fast-motion pictures. This monitor also has DisplayPort, and I'm using that input for my computer with a recently installed GTX 750 Ti; it looks simply awesome. Anyways, the "blinking" issue...not seeing that yet, so it's performing nicely.

Cons: So far nothing goes major. I do use picture-in-picture; while I am gaming on HDMI with the windowed screen is the computer, no aspect ratio change, but the other way around it's a bit stretched vertically. I wish Asus had a 1:1 aspect ratio matching for PIP. Also, this is a 1920x1200 monitor, so if you're seeing a 16:9 video you will see black bars on top and bottom (without being stretched); do consider that if you often watch 16:9 videos, but that isn't a major issue.

Other Thoughts: Anyways, this is a great IPS monitor to own. In fact, this is the best computer monitor I've ever owned! The USB 3.0 ports are a convenient add-on as well. VGA, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort...all the inputs necessary to connect to just about any computer. Asus do really make quite good monitors, so if you are planning or about to order this monitor, prepare to be amazed!

3 out of 5 eggsIPS panel

Pros: Has many desirable features like LCD back lighting.

Cons: The panel technology has a property that some users may find disagreeable. There is a noticeable dark area between the pixels. This makes displayed pictures and text look grainy.

5 out of 5 eggsVIEWING ANGLE

Pros: The viewing angle is a 178* and its a true 178*

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: I have been searching for a monitor in the sub $400 range for a couple of years. I wanted something that was just above the $300 range since I had to purchase 9 monitors. I went from HP to NEC which all said 178* viewing angle and was disappointed every time. I knew i could get these great monitors for $600 and up but since the monitor is not a critical viewing device like the Sony PVM productions monitors it wasn't worth sending them back. Now I found this monitor and this is all I'm using from now on.
