Summary: I have had this monitor well over a year now. I loved the color for photo processing. I really loved taking my SD card out of my camera and putting it directly into the reader on the side of the monitor.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my old LCD that was ok but just didnt give me the wide gamut I needed to work on my photos. The color on this monitor is excellent and when calibrated I do get a 100% SRGB and 98% Adobe RGB which is right in line with the specs.
Summary: Maybe that's the problem--no, wait, the problem was, with unit #1, a piece of something trapped under the coating that looked like a check mark in the middle of the screen. That, and a horrible coloration to everything depicted on the screen.
Summary: My unit arrived in perfect condition. I use this as an extended monitor for photography work; the IPS screen allows me to view my photos from top to bottom with no hint of washout as you'd find in standard monitors. I can also pivot the screen 90 degrees for my vertical shots.
Summary: I spent a lot of time looking into which monitor to purchase. I have been incredibly impressed with this machine! The color reproduction is incredibly spot on for a monitor that costs under $1000. The added benefit of having multiple ports to utilize is excellent.
Summary: I have little to add on top of other reviews. I just want to mention that the side USB ports are powered down if you power off the monitor. I had a trivial reason for briefly shutting off my monitor. When I resumed power (and my work), I realized I had lost my connection to my encrypted USB drive.
Summary: As others have complained about the PA246Q, mine started to flicker. It goes black for a half second. It does this many times an hour, which is super-annoying. I got the same results with the monitor attached to 2 other computers.
Summary: The colors on this monitor are bright and vivid: it astounded me when I first turned it on. The colors were so incredible that even some games looked as though they were being presented in 3D when, obviously, this monitor does not have such a function.
Summary: When your computer goes to sleep or into idle mode, somehow the monitor looses connection and starts flickering, it takes an amount of troubleshooting to get the image back. I need Asus to replace this monitor, and in all honesty I'm not happy with the performance of this product.
Summary: I'm loving the monitor. Side by side with a much older and cheaper LED on VGA connection, it's really a treat. If you're new to hooking up a digital display, use the HDMI cable only - it's the one they don't supply! Otherwise you will not be digitally connected. So order a cable with it.
