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! I tried to change my position and found when my eye looked at screen with an 30+ degree, and it looked better. This never happens with the same PL sunglasses!!
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 display, I have to rate it the worst possible rating because it is unreliable. I've tried two different cables from two different manufacturers as well.
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. Using the Bluerigger mini-display port to DVI input that others have used was the real let down.
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

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. And then it was whenever the monitor wasn't in active use. Yes, all the time. The only way to make it stop was to unplug it. Thankfully, it didn't make the sound when I was using it. But still.
High pitched noise from back of monitor render it unuseable
31 March 2014
Summary: In both the originally purchased unit, and the one that was given as a replacement under the IPR, a loud, high-pitched squealing noise comes from the back of the monitor. It is loud enough to make the monitor unusable in even a moderately quiet environment. If the replacement monitor did not also exhibit this behavior, I would give the product a high rating. Do not buy this monitor.
Pros: good display
Cons: Loud, high-pitched squealing noise emanating from back of unit.
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. To the monitors credit, the picture quality is pretty good and the colour reproduction (as far as I can tell since I've not had enough time to try it thoroughly) is good too. Everything about it is like the PA248Q which my partner has.
Summary: Questa mattina il corriere DHL mi consegna il tanto agognato monitor che mi serviva per fini lavorativi....ma le cose non sono andate come dovevano...il monitor era palesemente usato e non nuovo. Io adesso vi chiedo...se uno compra un articolo nuovo e gli arriva un articolo PALESEMENTE USATO ( cavi messi alla rinfusa , cd aperto e carta strappata....ditate sulle istruzioni...E mi fermo qui..! ). La serietà deve essere alla base della compravendita...
