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...

Asus ProArt PA249Q 24″ AH-IPS LCD Monitor Review


There are a number of monitors out there on the market that have made me think, “wow that looks amazing”, but now that I’ve seen the supreme quality that the PA249Q from Asus can give, I am left standing beside myself in amazement. The major thing that...

Beautiful Display


I have owned this monitor for almost 2 years. This is a very high quality monitor. I didn't have the high pitch sound like others have. I suffered for a few months before I decided to dial down the brightness control to less bright. I turned it the...

No dead or stuck pixels ; Beautifully vibrant, saturated, and even colors ; Lots more screen area than my previous 20 in. monitor ; Text is very crisp ; No backlight bleeding ; Very well built, sturdy, and stable construction

Way too bright out of the box, but can be adjusted down ; No complaints whatsoever

Dear Colorists,


TLDR; Out of the box, this display gives you accurate sRGB & Adobe RGB 8 Bit Color (DVI & VGA). If you want these accurate color spaces in 10 Bit (HDMI & DisplayPort) you must calibrate them yourself in the User Mode 1 & 2 profiles of the display. - I...

High Quality Panel ; Matte Finish ; Number of Inputs ; Great Color Accuracy

Very very subtle high pitch sound. Don't let this be the decision maker

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...
