Inconsistent

Brent Peterson, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this monitor because I already had one and wanted a 2nd for dual screen purposes. The screens do not match in color at all. I tried manually adjusting and using spyder express to calibrate them and they will not even come close to the same color balance. Not cool.

My monitor started flickering!

Roger A., Newegg
27 December 2012
  • Summary: Asus better start resolving the service issues with these monitors or they will continue to lose customers.
  • Pros: Great while it worked. Incredible color calibration and great price.
  • Cons: I bought this monitor for my wife who is a graphic artist. Now after about 6 months of use the screen is flickering and going black. I am calling ASUS tomorrow for a rapid replacement. If ASUS does not fix my problem I will never purchase another ASUS product. It is ridiculus how many people have...

Was a good monitor

Charles V., Newegg
19 December 2012
  • Summary: Don't know if I want to mess with ASUS support based on the experience of other reviewers. Don't want a refurbished monitor that I paid full price for and it seems that others have received replacement monitors with the same problem.
  • Pros: While it worked well it was a great display; bright, great colors.
  • Cons: After three months the monitor would flicker when first powered on or awaking from sleep. It has gradually gotten worse in the last month. The symptoms seem to indicate that the power supply is going bad.

Beware...

Anonymous, Newegg
4 November 2012
  • Summary: This is the second time I've been burned by Asus' monitors and at this point I just don't trust them in that regard. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one experiencing the flickering/blanking on this monitor.
  • Pros: 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. Awesome tilt control and ergonomics, with a ...
  • Cons: One of the first things I noticed was that with the brightness set fairly high the screen will experience burn-in. This is easy enough to notice by simply bringing up the monitor's OSD and leaving it on screen for a few seconds. I figured this was something that I could live with and set the brig...

Isa M., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • Summary: my next monitor will definitely be a dell UltraSharp model.
  • Pros: its either a hit or miss with this monitor, i am currently stationed in Hawaii, and shipping it back is not worth it, so ill keep it even dough it has an ridiculous amount of backlight bleeding...i would give it a 2.5 if i could.
  • Cons: backlight bleeding, very annoying.....i really wish they fix before they sell to the general public....

IT's P-IPS but don't believe what ASUS tells you about the calibration

Jason T. Miller "jmiller", Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I have two of these. When I got the first one I thought it was awesome for the money. I just set it to SRGB mode and forgot about it. It was supposed to have been calibrated at the factory so I thought I would be fine until I finally got around to calibrating it myself.

Great monitor backed by a worthless company

Tristan R., Newegg
11 November 2011
  • Summary: While it is an awesome product, beware of ASUS and their fake warranty. If you still want this product, then go for it, but trust me, you don't want to deal with ASUS and their less than caring support team.
  • Pros: The PA246Q is a fantastic monitor that produces nearly 100% of the adobe RBG color spectrum, and it shows. I am seeing details in my work that I have been missing and it has made a world of difference in the quality of my work. It also performs surprisingly well for games too, although it may not...
  • Cons: When it arrives, immediately and thoroughly check for any defects, such as dead pixels. The reason being that it is way easier to exchange though the retailer than it is to RMA though ASUS. Although ASUS claims to have changed their policy regarding dead pixels, it simply has not held true. I ord...

Great monitor backed by a less than great company

triscuit256, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: The ASUS PA246Q is an awesome affordable accurate monitor that, when calibrated, will produce close to 100% of the Adobe RGB spectrum. I recently bought 2 and both have helped me create and analyze my work at a far more critical level than I was able to before.

Quality issue and too bright

ItemPurchaser, Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Pros: The monitor feels well built, and colors are quite good. sRGB is spot on (as verified by a full calibration). Print colors have been spot on. Cons: It is too bright and even at 0 brightness is more than the 120 cdm you are looking for when dealing with print.
