    I truly wanted to love this monitor when it arrived but I was actually kind of let-down by it. The overall build quality of it was awesome and I can't express how much I truly loved the swivel and height adjust features. They made this hard for me to return. I had a couple problems though. First, my USB ports on this would not work. They were just...dead. This wasn't a HUGE deal to me but it was strike one against the PB238Q. The next issue was that despite countless attempts at adjusting the settings I could not seem to fix the white balance of the screen. It was always a bit yellow and murky. It didn't look as crisp as it could have. I think a professional calibration tool was required but I could not afford that. The final strike for me was when I went to play a couple games. I know this is an IPS monitor and they aren't the #1 choice for high action gaming but I had previously been using a 10 year old Dell monitor that blew this out of the water in terms of how it looked while playing. I had massive ghosting and blurry haze while playing on this screen. So much so that I couldn't even continue playing. I actually got dizzy. Something that hasn't happened to me in a long time with gaming on a PC. This went back. I just ordered another Dell monitor and I'm hoping it has a more crisp, clean look to the screen and that gaming isn't as blurry (even though it's not a gaming monitor). Sad about this. Loved the build of it but let down by yellow screen and bad ghosting.

    Asus PA238Q review
    With its fully adjustable stand, a wide choice of inputs, a 4-port USB hub and an IPS panel, the Asus PA238Q is one serious piece of kit. Asus claims a 100% sRGB colour palette, and in our calibration tests the PA238Q came very close - with aFull Review
