Great Graphic Design Monitor for Price

Allison, B&H Photo
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I am not a professional graphic designer, but I needed a new monitor for a project at work. I noticed immediately the improvement over my previous monitor in terms of color and clarity. I'm putting all my trust in the pre-calibration for color accuracy! Stand is sturdy; adjusting and switching color profiles is super easy and quick. The one issue I have is the high pitched whine that comes from the top of the monitor when on standby.
  • Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Preset Color Modes
  • Cons: Noise When On Standby, Very Very Bright

Great Monitor

Caroline S. Hardison, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Great monitor, and consistent color and brightness from edge to edge. I'm a photographer and I needed to upgrade my main monitor for more accurate color and contrast. I'm in front of my computer edited photos about 40 hours a week. So far I've not have had to adjust any settings after the first calibration I did 2 months ago. Compared to my old monitor, which I paid over $600 for 5 years ago, the images are sharper and my prints are true to the monitor.

Pay a little more for a lot more quality

Little Old Prof, B&H Photo
10 November 2014
  • Excerpt: My CRT was starting to fail so I plugged a low-cost 19 inch flat screen in to my computer. Picture quality was OK, but text was very poor. Reviews of the PA249Q promised high quality images and overall rating higher than monitors with much higher prices. The ratings proved correct. This is, in my opinion, a high quality monitor, although it is not intended as a video game monitor and I don't use it that way.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Lacks Adjustability

Windows 7 desktop themes never looked so good

Paul I., Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: Displaying with detailed precision, vivid colors, and with the ability to rotate the monitor side ways, it's perfect for looking at magazine quality photos. There is some pattern loss on some photos with the blue and grey though, but most of the time, it's barely even noticeable. There is also very little color loss with this monitor. Windows 7 desktop themes never looked so good.

Excellent monitor with one Mac issue.

RGomezPhotos, B&H Photo
30 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Great monitor! All kinds of great features and flexible setup. Colors are fantastic. The only thing is with a Mac, you'll need another cable not supplied. You'll need a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable/adapter. It would be nice to go direct from Thunderbolt to DisplayPort. Not a big deal but wanted to make sure you knew this.
  • Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint

My New Monitor

M. W. Thomas "MT", Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Tuned it up with my i1 profiler and the display is beautiful and the prints from my Epson R2000 printer with Photoshop 5 Extended or Photoshop Elements 12 are just like I see on the screen. It is a winner in my opinion.
