Asus PA249Q

Anonymous, Newegg
24 December 2015
  • Summary: I've purchased several of these monitors, mainly for work; there is a high-pitched noise for certain at least for the ones I've worked with. I work as a technical designer in the circuit / components industry in Silicon Valley.
  • Pros: - beautiful picture - excellent color calibration
  • Cons: - extremely high pitched noise (can be easily Quantifiable by a noise-measuring dB device) - Asus splash logo displays when powered on and there is no way to disable it. - however, despite these serious problems, the Merits of the display far outweighs the Cons

Pity

Peter M., Newegg
14 May 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this monitor looking to upgrade my current 16:9 to a 16:10 for some extra screen real estate. Also wanted a wide color gamut for photographic work (hobby). Read many online reviews and narrowed it down to this and the Dell U2413.
  • Pros: Beautiful Picture Sturdy stand Menu Joystick
  • Cons: High pitched noise!

Great monitor -- IF it doesn't have a persistent high-pitched tone and you don't get caught in the ninth circle of Asus support

Helen Gould, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: #donotbuyASUS This monitor is beautiful. Very good colors, very easy to set up and use. Lived up to the reviews. Until ONE MONTH LATER, when the high-pitched tone started. At first, it was for just 5 minutes or so, right after the monitor went idle.

Promising monitor, not so great experience

Amberg I., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: Too good to be true again? We'll see. I hope this one is better built. The previous PA monitor I have Stopped having an image on the screen after 2 1/2 years. It is a nightmare to figure out how to get the warranty working. I am unable to get to speak or a reply from somebody at Asus.
  • Pros: Antiglare, initial purchase price, 10 bit support (not "real " 10 bit, but nevertheless, supported), screen proportions. Before my ASUS RT56U expensive modem was hacked due to firmware and my precious ASUS PA246 suddenly stopped working in the same week, I would have said brand. Colors are fairly...
  • Cons: OSD is very unintuitive and the buttons are not ergonomically for fast selection in semobscurity (these monitors are to be used in low light conditions, radiology PACS workstations, photo - print situations, the buttons should be big and clear to use and have a great tactile feeling ) Company doe...

Reiterate: Mac users don't bother

T. Merrill, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I'll reiterate what two other reviewers have said so far: connecting this monitor to a Mac is a crapshoot. Having researched monitors for a while, I so wanted to like this monitor, but when the display flickers off and on, and pretty consistently will then go into a random pixel snow field on the...

Connection issues are its downfall

Omega Hsu, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: I just purchased this monitor with high hopes, only to have them dashed. The connection issue that others have noted were its undoing. With VGA connection from the mini-display port of an iMac, the picture displayed intermittent waving lines.

The worst LCD I have seen!!

Shuping Yu, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: The LCD always looks too bright to read document or write code! And there is no way to tune it to a comfortable brightness. This never happened to me before. I tried to wear an PL sunglasses to make it comfortable for my eyes, and found it was too dark to see anything any thing on the screen!

Don't buy this awful thing.

Mr. Christopher Williams, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: For a bit of background, I am a professional graphic designer and I purchased this as a way to build my home office. I'd done a moderate bit of research and the 10-bit panel built into this device seemed exactly what I was looking for.
