Summary: While the monitor initially performed fairly well, it (right around the product expiration date), started flickering and, subsequently "blacked out" intermittently. While the product - especially because of its being on the pricey side - may be of good quality (at least, that was my expectation),...
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.
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.
IT's P-IPS but don't believe what ASUS tells you about the calibration

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.
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.
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.
Summary: I needed an inexpensive but decent monitor for a non-critical print station. I figured with the feature set (10 bit panel used in the NEC PA241W and a 12 bit monitor LUT as well as DDC support) it offered that it would at least be halfway decent.
Excerpt: С удовольствием купила бы опять такой же, если бы была гарантия что снова не столкнусь с проблемой "моргания".
Pros: - отличная заводская калибровка профиля sRGB, цвета на 98% соответствуют печатному оттиску. - у меня плохое зрение, и от работы за любым бюджетным монитром появлялась головная боль и без бутылька Визина глаза уставали ужасно. За этим монитором удобство для глаз конечно пониже чем при работе с ЭЛТ...
Cons: через 6 дней после покупки экран монитора начал "моргать", в ютюбовском ролике хорошо видно что это за пакость, называется ролик "ASUS-PA246Q flickering" Так что пока не закончился 14-ти дневный срок сдала моник в магазин. Очень жаль, ни одной альтернативы в таком ценовом диапазоне не вижу.
