ASUS PA246Q 24" ProArt Monitor: No Adjustments Needed?
2 July 2012
Conclusion: The ASUS PA246Q comes designed to compete at the higher end of LCDs, with a 16:10 aspect ratio, AdobeRGB color gamut, 10-bit panel (using ARFC to extend a native 8-bit panel), and a fully adjustable stand. It also promises better performance out of the box than other displays, so you don’t need to own calibration equipment to get a more accurate image, and has a full CMS that you don’t see on PC monitors very often.
Summary: ASUS PA246Q offers a really good value at the price of Rs. 29,000 especially since it is a professional grade monitor, which generally cost much higher. The image quality is top notch, HD movie viewing experience is quite good except for the minor backlight bleeding. Also features such as Quick Fit button, connectivity ports, exhaustive tweaking options work in its favour. A recommended monitor for those looking at a budget professional grade monitor.
Pros: Exhaustive tweaking options in OSD, 1920x1200 pixels, Sturdy stand with tilt, swivel and pivot mechanism
Summary: The Editors' Choice Award-winning Asus PA246Q is a professional-class monitor with a satisfying number of features at an affordable price.
Pros: The Asus PA246Q has terrific performance with vibrant colors in games and movies. Its robust OSD offers detailed customization options and a unique overlay feature that provides extra graphical precision. Lastly, the monitor has full ergonomic support and a relatively affordable price.
Cons: The PA246Q's powerful backlight prevents really deep blacks from being attained, and there's a consistent color imperfection that gives most images a slight reddish hue. More connection options would have been useful.

Excerpt: 3 Flares 3 Flares × If you are fortunate enough to have just bought one of the new series of AMD or Nvidia discrete graphics solutions then today’s review product might be of interest. Asus have released a new 24 inch IPS screen, set to target discerning users who want to move up from their current mainstream TN monitor. Are you flush with cash and wanting an upgrade? then read on.
Conclusion: In a sea of mediocrity - and low quality 16:9 panels - the ASUS PA246Q truly is an island of excellence. While not absolutely perfect “out of the box” it requires only a few minor tweaks to rival the performance of some of the best monitors on the market. Asus seems to be one of the few companies that understand not everyone wants a 16:9 panel which sacrifices vertical space to achieve a lower price.
Summary: Uma vez mais, a ASUS provou que não brinca em serviço! O desafio foi criar um monitor que satisfizesse as exigências de qualquer profissional de design/fotografia, e o resultado foi um monitor onde a qualidade, funcionamento e opções estão bastante acima da média. Não sendo um dos monitores com painel IPS mais baratos do mercado (custa cerca de 500€), este ASUS ProArt PA246Q é, com certeza, um dos que oferece mais opções e qualidade de imagem.
