Excerpt: It's a good professional monitor. But it has 2 big issues. 1. bad pixels. 2. very clear blue and green on the bottom corner of the screen. In other words, the Asus monitor are very low quality.
Summary: I purchased one of these monitors. The high pitched squealing noise I described in the "Cons" section made it impossible to use because I work in a quiet environment. I returned the monitor and was given a replacement. The replacement monitor also emits the awful squealing noise.
Pros: High quality display.
Cons: High pitched squealing noise emanates from the back of the monitor. It is loud enough to render the monitor essentially unusable.
Pros: Very clear picture. No major ghosting issues and high response rate. Great all-around monitor for photo editing, games, movies, programming etc.
Cons: This monitor makes a VERY high-pitched sound when idle. It sits in my bedroom so it makes it hard to sleep sometimes without turning off the power switch (located on the back of the monitor). The monitor is also not completely uniform which is a bit annoying - it goes from red to a yellowish hue....
Summary: -A green tinge that I couldn't remove in the blacks -Light bleeding on edges or corner -Really wanted to keep it but the display quality was not what I expected especially for the price -Slow boot up
Not as accurate as advertised - 249q and 248q render significantly different

Summary: I purchased this monitor and a ASUS 248q, both advertised as 100% color accurate. When I have them both connected to the same display card, using identical cables, both set to sRGB, their color rendition is significantly different.
Summary: Very difficult monitor to assess. If you can find a good one (it's a lottery as ever with TV and Computer monitor panels), then the display is excellent: great colours and great consistency. However, the display flicks itself on and off if used via DVI, so make sure you use DisplayPort and/or HDMI.
Gibt leider lautes und sehr störendes Piep-Geräusch von sich.

Summary: Der Monitor macht zwar einen wertigen Eindruck und zeigt auch ein schönes Bild, allerdings gibt er leider auch ein lautes und sehr störendes hohes Piep-Geräusch von sich. Zum arbeiten daher leider völlig ungeeignet.
Summary: ho ricevuto il monitor spedito e consegnato in maniera perfetta. Appena provato, ho notato dei tenui aloni bluastri agli angoli inferiori. ho fatto qualche prova per capire se andavano via ma niente da fare.
