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!READ FULL REVIEW
