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), Asus customer service is virtually non-existent. I tried calling them (long distance in Indiana - no call-free service) several times, experienced long wait periods.
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. I would've sent it back but I couldn't find any other seller of this monitor.
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. I saw other people on the internets complaining aout this problem (see examples on youtube), so after doing everything Asus support suggested (via e-mail), I returned it to Asus for repair.
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. Awesome tilt control and ergonomics, with a lot of ports and options for the artistically inclined. However...
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. The 2nd monitor came today and after setting it to SRGB mode as well the two do not match at all color-wise.
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. For someone who works with many forms of media day in and out, this is a huge plus! Both monitors have been awesome in almost every single respect, except for one thing.
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. I didn't think it was that big of a deal, but even knowing it I ordered my first batch of prints to find them a bit dimmer than I had hoped. be ware.
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. I certainly didn't expect NEC quality but unfortunately Asus really missed the mark with this one. The first problem is that this monitor is far too bright for professional use.
