great new monitor

John, B&H Photo
15 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I am very pleased with the color rendition and the match with my Epson R2880. It is quite bright - so good in a lighted room. Only annoyance is the problem switching inputs. You have to be in one mode before you can switch to another. I wish I could simply switch to what I have just plugged in.Very easy on the eyes and pleasant for long editing sessions.
  • Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint

Great Monitor

  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these monitors and they're great for both photo and video work. Being able to easily switch between inputs also allows me to have dual monitors on one desktop while also being able to quickly switch my 2nd monitor to my 2nd desktop, or use the picture in picture function, for tasks.
  • Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Decent Price, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance

Not for a beginner ? Maybe it is.

  • Excerpt: This monitor is the pivot point in my digital darkroom. I use it exclusively as Iwork on my images with Lightroom and Photoshop - and send them to my printer. I am a retired photography teacher. The factory calibration is a wonderful starting point for a somewhat experienced worker who took advantage of it's qualities.

Good monitor

Chips, B&H Photo
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the PA249Q primarily for photography. Has excellent colors and seemingly a wide range of tones. Large screen which is more than adequate for my work. When received and plugged in the screen was very, very bright but have adjusted that so it is fine now. I use this in conjunction with a Mac. Suspect Windows users would have a wider range of adjustments but really not sure about that. I would not hesitate to recommend the monitor to others.

All very good and easy to set up

  • Excerpt: The default adobe RGB setting works just fine for me on both my mac and PC, althrough I turn down the brightness to minimum. You need to fiddle with the menu settings to get it just right, but it's more intuitive than most monitors I've had before. I bought this preceisely becuase of its wide adobe rgb gamut vs. its price point.
  • Pros: Great picture quality

Accurate colors, sharp image

  • Excerpt: This monitor is the tops for accurate colors, sharpness, minimal footprint. I had no problems installing this monitor to my Linux system and using it with GIMP to get images ready for the Epson R3000. Being precalibrated, the PA249Q 24" has cut down the time I previously spent screwing around with color and density balances. Thank you for the fine product. As always, thank you, BH, for your quick delivery and exceptional customer service.
  • Pros: Adjustable Viewing Angles, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Precalibrated Color, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint

Asus 24" LED

warbonnets, B&H Photo
13 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Right out of the box the color is over saturated but after I set the moniter to sRGB and my video card to sRGB the color improved greatly. I use this for editing photos and so far am happy with it. It has four video connections so it should work with any video card. It also has four USB 3.0 ports for additional connectivity.
  • Pros: Accurate color, Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image

The best value at this price point.

  • Summary: I have personally tried every 24 inch monitor under $500 including the Dell 2413 Premier Color and the Asus is the best. Side-by- side with the Dell you can clearly see the difference. The Asus's colors are deeper and more vibrant. The Dell may have been slightly sharper but the Asus was so much more rich and pleasing that I sent back the Dell after 1 day.
