Summary: I use this monitor professionally, and it has served me unswervingly well. Now, my impression might be skewed considering this monitor was replacing, a pretty terrible 6 year old monitor but I really do love working with this screen.
Excerpt: The monitor is very good, but it has a problem when using two monitors. When the Asus monitor is my main display, it sometimes does not function correctly when being woken up from sleep. There will be rainbow lines across the monitor. This does not happen when it is the secondary display.
Summary: Easy to set up and install. It took less than 30 minutes from opening the box to use. The clarity and color of the picture is an obvious upgrade from my old monitors. I love the size of the screen as well, I run a dual screen set up and usually have many documents open at once.
Excerpt: I'm a marketing director. I work on every kind of application, from reading lots of text, approving proofs of marketing materials, website design and work on budgets. This monitor is perfect for the multitasker who's looking for color accuracy. Nothing here has been compromised.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance
Summary: First comes the excitement... then a big disappointment. I was very impressed by the display quality of this monitor. It was so pleasing to look at that I was even looking forward to come home and doing some work on it. The colors are crisp and bright but easy to look at - no eye strain.
Excerpt: Working part time in the US and in Europe I need a computer in both places for photo editing and book publishing. I am using a late 2014 mac mini, 16 GB memory with 500 GB SSD internal storage to process Photoshop and Indesign.
Summary: The Asus PA249Q is an entry-level computer monitor intended for photographers who want to view their images in the Adobe RGB color space. To make the best use of the monitor, users will need to be well versed in color management and have the software tools necessary to color-manage their images all...
Excerpt: I own a NEC 27" monitor, use it mainly when shooting tethered and when editing my work. Bought this ASUS for a friend, and tested it before. Was surprised by its performance, not quite as good as my NEC, but great value for the money.
Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area
Update to review. Clicking noise went away. As mentioned before, the colors of this monitor are great. 5 stars.

Summary: monitor colors are great, however after the 2nd day of use, there is a low volume clicking sound coming from the monitor. My monitor did not come with a brick, assuming it does not require one. Anyone else experiencing the clicking sound? All cables are included, nice color rendering for photo work.
Summary: This Asus delivers the rich, accurate colors that graphics professionals require and it's jam-packed with features but it has trouble at the dark end of the grayscale, and it's expensive. Pros: + Excellent color accuracy and viewing angles. + Versatile stand. + Generous port selection.
