This monitor is crisp, and professional Posted by: from: on I used this as a second monitor to my imac for my editing station and it is a great addition. I spent a few weeks looking for the right monitor with features that had creativity in mind and this one checked all the boxes. Plenty of inputs to choose from, a great menu to fine tune to your preference and it even looks good on the desk. The only issue i have with it is sometimes when my computer goes to sleep, the monitor will sleep along with it, but when i wake the computer up, the monitor doesnt follow. other than that im very very glad with the purchase!

Great monitor, but Common ASUS issue Posted by: from: Michigan on These are great monitors. The Colors on them are great. I compared them with a few others on my setup within the range and returned the others because this was the best one. bought three more to complete my 4 monitor setup (3 across and one on top). I noticed right away but thought it was a graphics issue and didn't have time to troubleshoot earlier. There is a common issue with this monitor from ASUS in that the screen has a flickering issue where you will either lose signal for a second or you get a video distortion for a split second. It seems to be random and does not happen every time I am on my computer. this issue exists with 2 of my four monitors. Bought Geeksquad warranty on one of the four just so i had a backup for at least one monitor if it broke later. Geek squad works as normal bring it in and order the new one. 5 star for Geek Squad plans. I should have brought them in right away and i would have been able to do both within best buy. the second one i'll be sending back to Asus. -1 star for broken monitors from Asus. otherwise 5 star for the functioning ones

Graphic Artists Rejoice! Posted by: from: on Solid build quality, larger workspace, and ability to rotate the monitor vertically makes this ProArt a must buy for any graphic artist of all levels. First off, this monitor aspect ratio is 16:10 which gives you more space from top to bottom when viewed horizontally. This is very useful because there is more room for workspace especially if you are using graphics software. Second, the neat feature the monitor is the ability to rotate it vertically. This is very useful if you are doing photo touch-ups, graphic design, or illustration work that requires a portrait orientation. The monitor sRGB colors are excellent and are able to be reproduced very close when output to print. Overall, this is an excellent Monitor if you are looking for a quality-built monitor for design work. There are also a lot of neat features on the monitor that enables you to switch to theater/gaming mode and there is a ruler that is subtly engraved into the monitor's bottom ledge.

Great monitor! Posted by: from: on Being a pro photographer, having accurate color reproduction is very important to me and the color on this monitor was spot on right out of the box.

Selected for Photography Posted by: from: Atlanta, GA on I selected this monitor mostly for photography purposes. Otherwise I would have chosen a different, less expensive monitor that didn't have to be an IPS monitor. I have not found it to be overly bright like some reviews, and have noticed no pixel problems on the edges. It was easy to set up and use immediately, and seems to be a good size: not too large, not too small. I may have rated even higher if I had not felt my other computer components were possibly pulling this monitor down some.

Awesome screen for photo editing Posted by: from: Honolulu, HI on I got this monitor to pair with my mac mini and it's just perfect. Pre-calibrated from the factory its already pretty accurate, but it did benefit from the use of the X-rite display calibrator. Smooth movement also makes it great for multiple viewing positions.

Great Monitor Posted by: from: Ithaca, NY on Great Monitor, with numerous inputs, unlike most new displays. Colors are very good, and the unit has a very in-depth menu. Plus this monitor properly handles 4:3 aspect ratio.

outstanding monitor! Posted by: from: Houston on Outstanding resolution, but I do not believe my video card does it justice. I believe a better video card than my radeon hd 5670 would even be more spectacular.

Great Monitor for color for certified color! Posted by: from: on Asus Pro Art is an excellent choice for color accuracy and certified. It's not often that electronics come with factory certification these days. Plenty of USB expandability as well. No unwanted edge shadowing or backlight edge bleed. I would recommend the Asus PA248Q to any photography professional. The price and quality is outstanding.
