good for the money

BobS, Walmart

  • Summary: For the price it's pretty good. Probably the best buy in this size range. The trend is now towards bigger monitors and higher resolution but if this is the size you want it's a good buy.

User Review

rhodin, NCIX.com
26 July 2014
  • Summary: Although the latency isn't great, as a designer and photographer, I care more about accuracy than speed. This has good colour right out of the box, which got better when I switched to the sRGB mode.
  • Pros: Colour accuracy and built-in sRGB mode; menu system is better than others I've used; accessories/cables; rotation and height adjustment.
  • Cons: Wiggles when desk is bumped; height adjustment can be tempermental; lack of HDMI cable when all others were included.

ASUS IPS Display

Mark T., Newegg
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I need to test if the USB ports will work on the side even when the USB passthrough is not plugged in. It'd be nice to be able to plugin a phone to charge without having to connect that cable.
  • Pros: IPS Display, running at 1920x1080. IPS meaning that you'll get very good picture quality out of the box much better than that of your standard TN type displays. If you're looking for an accurate picture you'll need one of these. The bezel on this display is very nice, great if you want to buy mul...
  • Cons: The black level is not that great to be honest and it MASSIVELY needs to be calibrated out of the box. The red is too bright, and needs to be adjusted down, once that is done, it's easily in line with some of the best displays out there. I'm very hard on the monitors that I buy when it comes to p...

Pivot feature works great!

Nicholas H., Newegg
13 June 2014
  • Summary: Very nice. In retrospect maybe the product is slightly overpriced? But that's not really for me to decide, is it...
  • Pros: I've used two of these for about 9 months and they work very well. I chose these monitors almost entirely for the PIVOT feature, which is very unique and lives up to my expectations. I have one monitor in landscape and one monitor in portrait right next to each other, and they look great. The sta...
  • Cons: The built-in speakers are absolutely horrendous (but who cares, that wasn't why I purchased these). The bezel is quite large. And the default color/brightness configurations are pretty weird.

Pretty good, but...

Gentry H., Newegg
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm not going to hold the button malfunction against this too hard yet, but it would be nice if it just worked. This is my 3rd ASUS screen and the first 2 are still going strong.
  • Pros: The IPS panel is a clear step up from TN, after experiencing this I don't want to go back to using TN panels. You can get both dark blacks and bright whites, much more range than a TN screen. The biggest plus is the minimized color/value shifting due to viewing angle. If you're an artist this is ...
  • Cons: The menu buttons are a little odd to use being in a vertical setup and not ordered intuitively. This makes it a bit of a pain to calibrate, but once that's done you don't need them. After 6 months one of those buttons malfunctioned and jammed the screen on a bad color mode. It's currently being R...

Great monitor with ergonomic stand.

Yao L., Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I've used this monitor for about 2 years now. My favorite feature is the very solid stand that allows the monitor to be tiled 90 degrees. This is great in multi monitor setups for viewing long documents, write code, and other applications that benefit from very long vertical resolution.

  • Summary: Great to have a matte display choice at a favorable price. Used to buy viewsonic but their warranty terms aren't customer friendly. Hoping for better from asus.

A nice monitor

C. Bartley, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I upgraded from two Samsung P2450H Monitors to two ASUS PB238Q Monitors. I had a chance to compare the two brands side by side. The PB238Q's color and contrast are superior. The difference in their corresponding brightness is imperceptible.

Great monitor with excellent multiple functions, but Asus instructions a nightmare, and help/support pitiful.

Char, Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: Monitor has great style-features-functions. But manual lacked clear details. Also, OSD too complicated, difficult. Email customer service is inept,useless--could not solve problems. Rep did not understand my questions, and seemingly replied with guesswork from a manual, with a topic of no relation.
