The PA249Q 24" LED Backlit IPS Widescreen Monitor from ASUS comes pre-calibrated right out of the box with a variety of features including a 1920 x 1200 resolution, a 6 ms response time, multiple connectivity ports and four USB 3.0 ports

The Splendid Video Intelligence technology allows for optimal viewing based upon your content. With seven available preset modes including scenery, standard, theater, sRGB, Adobe RGB and two user modes, you can view the display accurately. You can also utilize the picture-in-picture ability to see displays from two different signals.

Wide Color Gamut Reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB Color Space
The ASUS PA249Q is pre-calibrated at the factory for high accuracy and outstanding color space reproduction - 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB and 120% NTSC. With a wide color gamut of 99% Adobe RGB, the colors seen in photos will be reproduced faithfully and consistently in a way that cannot otherwise be on monitors with just an sRGB color space.
10-Bit Color for Smoother Gradations
With a 10-bit display color for over one billion onscreen colors and 12-bit internal lookup table (LUT) support, the monitor gives smoother gradations and a more natural transition between hues.
Pre-Calibrated Right Out of the Box
The monitor guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, having been pre-calibrated to minimize the color difference to Delta E of less than 3, ensuring precise reading of color input and guarantees excellent color fidelity.
Next-Generation IPS Display Technology
It also features AH-IPS (Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching) display technology for superior color accuracy, a brighter image from increased backlight transmission and lower power consumption. The monitor also features a brightness rated at 350cd/m² and an 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for enhanced image contrast.
6-Axis Independent Color Adjustment
Customized hue and saturation control with 6 color adjustment allows you to adjust six colors (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) independently without affecting other colors.
Robust Connectivity
The monitor provides faster connectivity with four USB 3.0 ports, so you can easily plug in your devices and experience ultra-fast data transmission speeds that are up to 10 times that of current USB 2.0 standards.
An extensive array of connectivity and high compatibility options, including DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, and D-sub, is available; you can use up to two or three displays simultaneously.
Splendid Video Intelligence Technology
ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence technology is built upon a color engine that automatically analyzes and determines the nature of the user's current task, thereafter adjusting the display's parameters accordingly to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity. Seven preset modes (scenery, theater, Adobe RGB, sRGB, standard and two user modes) can be selected via a designated hotkey.
Intuitive 5-Way Navigation Key
A 5-way navigation key acts as a joystick to provide access to the QuickFit Virtual Scale function along with all on-screen display functions and settings.
Customizable On-Screen Display Shortcuts
Two user-customizable shortcuts for frequently used monitor controls help you eliminate the need to navigate the full on-screen menu system.
Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture
ASUS exclusive innovations, Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP), allow you to view images from almost any signal you want. PIP and PBP also allow you to switch between the main and PIP source, including audio, easily.
QuickFit Virtual Scale Function
This ASUS monitor comes with the QuickFit Virtual Scale function, allowing you to preview photos and documents on screen in their actual sizes prior to printing. It can be activated via a hotkey on the monitor and used as a guide to accurately view and edit photos. Additionally, you can choose seven different background colors of your choice.

      This wide-screen monitor is a great alternative to using dual monitors if you are considering that, for example, if you are a documentation or other writing professional. This is the high-end version of a cheaper 24" LED backlit IPS monitor by Asus (PA248Q), and among other things, it has none of the light bleeding reported by users of the cheaper model. However, the PA248Q is an excellent, more cost-effective alternative if you do not care about the light bleeding issue and do not want (or need) the superior color fidelity of the PA249Q.

      As others have noted, it is extremely simple to set up (with minor caveats) and provides pretty much all the connection and adjustment options you could ever want in a monitor, and all of that is true of the PA248Q as well.

      The minor caveats for me (a new Asus monitor user) include two set up issues: 1) I did not immediately realize that the top control (a stick-like button) on the right-hand control panel was the "joy stick" for navigating the monitor menus. I spent a bit of time looking around for how to do that until I took a closer look at the Quick Setup guide. This guide is multi-lingual (with the same instructions listed for a single diagram with over a dozen languages), and I did not see the English one right away, although it is the first one in the long list! Once I realized what it was, it took only a couple minutes of practice to figure out how to use it. Probably, prior Asus users would have no trouble with this.

      2) This monitor has an automatic setup option for VGA connections. However, I was surprised to note that this automatic feature horizontally centered the screen with a bright white line down the right-hand vertical edge of the screen. I soon discovered that all I needed to fix this was to use the menu to move the image position to the right by 2%. Unfortunately, the VGA auto-setup does not seem to learn this new position. So, if you have a reason to temporarily adjust some other feature, you cannot use the VGA auto setup to return to your preferred settings. It always goes back to its default, with the white vertical line on the right. It would be a nice enhancement to be able to save settings for the VGA auto setup, with an option to return to the defaults if you want to start from scratch.

      One nice workaround for this last problem is that you can program one of two soft buttons to take you immediately to the image position setting in order to quickly center the screen after a VGA auto setup.

      One other thing I have yet to try. There is a monitor software disk that comes in the package, but I am currently using Windows XP and the disk only works with Windows 7 or 8. However, I will shortly be moving to a Windows 7 system and will see if the software provides any better support for the VGA auto setup feature.

      But these caveats are all very minor from my viewpoint and I only mention them as a potential heads up. Generally speaking, I love this monitor.

      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.

      The monitor was easy to set and was already calibrated. Excellent color and tone. The manual on the included CD gives a brief description of each of the buttons, but no discussion, recommendations or examples. In particular, examples of the QuickFit option would have been useful.

      Comments about ASUS PA249Q 24" LED Backlit IPS Widescreen Monitor:

      I have been putting off getting a better monitor for image editing, spending any extra money on lenses, etc. But last month my wife gave me a nice gift card so I thought I would upgrade my older 22" Dell. I did plety of research on monitors in this price range and based on all the reviews and feature sets chose the ASUS. I'm glad I did. The design, color, and features are beautiful. I really didn't know what I was missing until now. The stock calibraton is spot on with little to no warm up time as well. The height adjustment is really nice and it was easy to figure out all the controls. Needless to say I'm very satisfied so far.

I have several taken in challenging lighting situations and had only seen them on a smallish old monitor and was so disappointed in the pictures I took. Then I saw them on this monitor and everything I wanted was there. This reaffirmed my joy in making the photos I want to make, like this is really possible within my budget. Thank you ASUS!

          This was a gift for my daughter and her family and will used by them for general computer use with occasional photo editing. When I visit it will be used for heavy editing with Photoshop CC. I am using a monitor at home that cost twice as much a couple of years ago and the Asus is just as good. And, because it uses LED's instead of the older fluorescent back lighting there is no warm-up time.

            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.

                  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. I had a little more I wanted to learn about tweaking color and having such a good display gave me a lot of confidence in the moves I made - and I expect to be looking at this screen for many years. My prior Display was a LaCie with a CRT which went blank while I was working and I don't think I'll see [?] that happen again.

                      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.

                        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.

                          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.

                            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.

                            Comments about ASUS PA249Q 24" LED Backlit IPS Widescreen Monitor:

                            I use this product for its ability to emulate the Adobe RGB color space, which I prefer to use in Photoshop, and for the price it's hard to beat. The screen is bright (though maybe just a little too bright) and quite evenly lit, and the factory calibration, in both Adobe and sRGB, is excellent. The screen is easily adjustable, the controls are intuitive, and there are more than enough connections for my needs. It's not the ideal multimedia monitor (for that I have a television), but it's adequate for most fast-moving video.

                            I do have a few minor quibbles: calibrating is not as easy as it should be, because this monitor lacks the internals that some of the more expensive models have, and as I said above, the screen is a little too bright. It could also use an auto-rotate feature for working in portrait orientation.

                            That aside, I'm very pleased, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fairly-priced monitor that does Adobe RGB and can jump easily between colorspaces.

                            I primarily use this for photography and it has great sharpness and color reproduction. I really do like that it is color calibrated at the factory, even though i haven't used a third party system to check it. I've found the menu system very useful along with the 4 usb 3.0 ports. I'm thinking about buying another one.
