Asus PA249Q


The Asus PA249Q delivers the rich, accurate colors that graphics professionals require and it's jam-packed with features but it has trouble at the dark end of the grayscale, and it's expensive.

Excellent color accuracy and viewing angles. Versatile stand. Generous port selection

Pricey. Mediocre dark grayscale performance. No auto rotate

Geared toward graphics professionals who depend on accurate color representation, the Asus PA249Q is the latest addition to the company's Pro Art line of professional grade monitors. This 24-inch model is loaded with features and offers excellent color...

Asus PA249Q ProArt LCD Monitor: An Affordable Professional Display


“Over the last few years seeking monitor/display units that serve to perform with adjustment and color management to resolve the problems of too bright LCD displays causing too dark prints, my reaction has usually been mixed. I have to report that this...

Consumer review by:



Purchased this monitor looking to upgrade my current 16:9 to a 16:10 for some extra screen real estate. Also wanted a wide color gamut for photographic work (hobby). Read many online reviews and narrowed it down to this and the Dell U2413. Decided on...

Beautiful Picture ; Sturdy stand ; Menu Joystick

High pitched noise

Promising monitor, not so great experience


Too good to be true again? We'll see. I hope this one is better built. The previous PA monitor I have Stopped having an image on the screen after 2 1/2 years. It is a nightmare to figure out how to get the warranty working. I am unable to get to speak...

Antiglare, initial purchase price, 10 bit support (not "real " 10 bit, but nevertheless, supported), screen proportions ; Before my ASUS RT56U expensive modem was hacked due to firmware and my precious ASUS PA246 suddenly stopped working in the same...

OSD is very unintuitive and the buttons are not ergonomically for fast selection in semobscurity (these monitors are to be used in low light conditions, radiology PACS workstations, photo - print situations, the buttons should be big and clear to use...

High Pitch Sound


There is a noise when the monitor is turned on. Not too bad. But when I plug any 2.0 or 3.0 device into the USB 3.0 ports on the side of the monitor there is a high pitched sound. The sound disappears when I unplug the device. This is in unsat. You can...

Picture is clear and color accuracy seems ok. Text is clear

High pitched sound, especially loud when something is plugged into 3.0 USB on side of monitor

Great display - 1 major issue


I really wish this monitor had speakers and higher resolution, but for the price range it's feature packed.

Great IPS display! Looks great and has USB 3.0 with tilt and swivel stand

When monitor is in sleep mode there is an annoying high pitch whine from the back of the monitor. If this wasn't a problem I would have given the display a higher rating. For what you pay for this monitor you would think there wouldn't be issues like...

Great picture but one major flaw


Very clear picture. No major ghosting issues and high response rate. Great all-around monitor for photo editing, games, movies, programming etc

This monitor makes a VERY high-pitched sound when idle. It sits in my bedroom so it makes it hard to sleep sometimes without turning off the power switch (located on the back of the monitor) ; The monitor is also not completely uniform which is a bit...
