The True Color
Pre-calibrated right out-of box
The out-of-box settings are impressive as each PA248Q is pre-calibrated at factory to prove the best color accuracy. To ensure that each PA248Q produces the most accurate and consistent color, we carefully measure its ?E and gamma value and track its gray-scaling. It even supports both Gamma 2.2 for PC and Gamma 1.8 for Mac – offering users more flexibilities to work with.
Each PA248Q guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, having been calibrated to minimize color difference to ?E (Delta E) of less than 5 – ensuring precise reading of color input and guarantees excellent color fidelity.
Optimal HD A+ IPS Panel
The ASUS PA248Q features a 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920 x 1200 A+ IPS LED-backlit panel for 100% sRGB and 72% NTSC color reproduction; addititionally, along with a 178° wide viewing angle, it ensures quality visuals and minimal onscreen color shift from almost any viewing position.
ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 300cd/m² of brightness, the ASUS PA248Q enhances display contrast and sharpness – by adjusting the luminance of the backlight to achieve the darkness black and brightest white – delivering lifelike visuals.
Customized Color Adjustment
Customized hue and saturation control with 6 color adjustment allows user to adjust six colors (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) independently without effecting other colors.
ASUS PA248Q also delivers ultra-smooth visuals thanks to a 6ms (GTG) response time – ensuring users have a lag-free viewing experience when it comes to watching movies or playing games. Games played under the PA248Q are more vivid – as all details can be seen and true color can be shown with the PA248Q.

Great monitor for the price, adjusts for just about any height or angle. Fun to have usb ports on there as well. It would be nice to have some form of cable management on the stand although the monitor does come with cable ties.
physically it's the best looking monitor on the market, with adjustable tilt, swivel, height and portrait/landscape. completely customizable display settings, but works flawlessly right out of the box. the 4xUSB 3.0 hub is a bonus too. love Asus products, and own many.
tested out a little gaming on this, 16:10 definitely makes a difference, the colours make a huge difference. No regrets whatsoever, I've got mine sat next to the 23" which is in Portrait mode, loads more area to work with.
I am a CG artist and i have used Dell Ultrasharp 24 " at work for more than 5 years and always want to replace my home monitor with Dell's. Thanks to Asus for manufacturing this beautiful monitor with HDMI, USB 3 included at a very lower cost. The image on this monitor is superior and I'd highly recommend to anyone, either for work or home.
Bought this for a client because she wanted an IPS Screen. If you want an IPS screen and are willing to pay for it, then this screen is great! It looks beautiful and has great functionality. And for an IPS screen the price is very good, in fact its the cheapest I've seen. But these prices will probably drop quiet a bit in the next little while as the technology ages. With that said, I feel IPS is almost a gimmick and is really only useful in a niche market like for photo editing where color accuracy is important. For gaming or everyday use, just get a good LED monitor for less then half the price, heck you could buy two for the price of one of these and dually it up!
I really love this thing! No dead pixel whatsoever, it came with all cables including HDMI which is rare. Asus got rid of the red line on the front bezel (was bothering some people I guess).
Reactivity is great, screen is fast enough for Battlefield 3, MOH Warfighter and other fast titles. Faster that D(H)ell U2412 for games. No imput lag. Came calibrated from the factory. I just set the TRACE-FREE option to 40 (recommended in reviews if you're a gamer). got an awesome Week-end-only deal from NCIX!
