Summary: WARNING: This is NOT a PA238Q for sale, it is the PA238QR for sale. This is a different model entirely. Read comparisons between the two carefully before you buy. ALSO, this box came extremely dirty and taped over several times.... obviously it was returned and badly stored. Buyer beware!
Summary: Two years ago I bought one of these monitors to play as my second monitor with my iMac. About a month back I upgraded to a Mac Mini and needed a second display and decided to go with another one of Asus's Pro Art series monitors. I love these monitors and everything on the box and in the description is true. This display works flawlessly and is an amazing piece of work all it's own. However, the box the package came in was assemble horribly and was just unacceptable.
Summary: The considerable bleed through on the lower right side of the monitor was noticeable enough to render it unacceptable. This is a common problem with this model and Asus is aware of the issue. Item was returned.
Summary: I've become addicted to having an extra monitor for my laptop at one location, the ViewSonic VP2655wb 25.5" pivot LCD. I like the pivot feature and Amazon had a good price back when I bought it, but it's awfully large and so when I went shopping for a monitor for my other location, I looked smaller and cheaper, but wanted pivot. I found this ASUS monitor at $253 -- quite cheaper than the ViewSonic (and smaller) and really had little expectations.
Summary: On 5th of May I bought ASUS PA238Q monitor from Amazon.co.uk. I chose this monitor because I am a software designer and sometimes do some UI design works. The other reason was that I am sensitive to backlight PWM flickering issues and it was reported by many review labs that PA238Q has high PWM frequency which should help my eyes to avoid unnecessary strain. I also have heard that some people report backlight bleeding but I hoped that they just were unlucky.
Summary: I've had this monitor for about a month and haven't had a single issue. The IPS panel is amazing and delivers high resolution with crisp, clean colors. I do a lot of gaming and the graphics looks great especially compared to my old TN panel monitor. For an IPS panel monitor this is a very reasonable price and another fine asus product. It has a multitude of inputs and even has usb. The design is very simple and clean.
