    ASUS PB238Q Reviews

    PB238Q 23" Widescreen LED Backlit IPS LCD Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very pleased with this monitor I've had this monitor hooked up to my Macbook Pro for about a week and it has performed well. The picture is sharp and bright. The sRGB setting is just what I need for photo editing. The setup was easy, but it comes with VGA set as the default connection. That can be changed, but you have to connect the monitor to your computer before you can access the setup controls. There seems to be no way to modify the default video input with the monitor off-line. Also, for Macs with a mini-display port, you will need to get a third party cable, if you want to use that input. The Display Port cable that is included is a full size DP to DP cable. All-in-all, I am happy with the unit, now that I have it connected correctly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor at good price Monitors are not all created equal. If you need to do graphics work, it's best to avoid so-called business monitors. It was important for me to have a monitor with even illumination across the screen, and from a wide range of viewing angles. This monitor has good top-bottom, left-right even illumination, which was why I bought it. It has a bright, vibrant display. The control buttons are conveniently located along the right edge of the frame, where they are easier to manipulate. The menus are easy to navigate. The base is solid and sturdy. The monitor has good flexibility; i.e., can be pivoted or turned to practically any viewing angle. No cons so far. Hopefully, it will be operable well past its 1-year warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome monitor I was skeptical about getting this monitor because of the low amount of reviews, but its definitely a very, very nice monitor. The matte finish for the screen prevents glares, the non-glossy matrerial is fresh and different from asus' mainstream models, and the tilt/swivel display is an AWESOME BONUS!!! As far as display performance, the quality is very clear, and its a great ips monitor for its price. No dead pixels here, and the shipping and handeling from B&H is top-notch! All in all this is a more-than-adequate monitor, and would recommend it to even gamers and casuals alike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good monitor Very good monitor. Great for browsing and photo editing. Wide port selection. Easy tilting and shifting. The non-reflective coating helps a lot. The The only complaint is that it's too bright for prolonged typing/reading and decreasing brightness really hurts the picture quality. Otherwise it's the best bang for the buck. The only difference between this monitor and more expensive Asus PA238Q is that the later is factory color pre-calibrated which only matters if you are a professional graphic designer.Then again: if you do this kind of work you'll probably go for a much more expensive monitor that provide a true 8-bit color depth and will cost 3-4 times more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice monitor, but be careful with rebate This is a very nice monitor for the price. Be very careful when submitting a rebate. I've never had a company reject a rebate when submitting a B&H order details or confirmation e-mail. (Most companies just need to ensure that you actually purchased the product from a company authorized to offer the rebate.) To qualify for the rebate's requirement of a Copy of Receipt/Invoice or Packing List, Asus requires an order history print of the order containing the words Invoice Date, or the packing list. Asus does not consider the order details or confirmation e-mail to be a receipt or invoice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Monitor Went from 17 CRT 4:3 to this 23 and it looks great. Narrowed search by monitors that swivel, tilt and had height adjustment. The swivel & tilt are very smooth and hold their position. The base has a good grip on the desk so I don't have to hold it down while swivelling with one hand. The height adjustment is OK but could be a little bit tighter and I would prefer that it lower about another 2 inches. It lowers to about 3.75 above the desk. That would put it more in the sweet spot of my bifocals. It does rotate to portrait but that was not important to me. The screen is not glossy and has decent anti-glare. I have a large door-wall 8' behind me facing east and get a lot of sunlight. I change the tilt to help with direct sunlight or high glare off the snow. It has a good number of hook-up options and the 4 USB ports have been handy. So far, I have been very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor I reseached monitors for hours. I looked at the stats, blogs, and pro reviews. In the end, at this price point, this monitor stood above all the rest. B&H Photo Video received my order on a Sunday, and I had the product in a few days. Great service. The monitor is a good size for desk work, and the color and clarity of images and text are a signficant improvement over my older, LCD monitor. Overall, very happy with this purchase and from buying it from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Bright. Well made. We had been putting this purchase off for a long time. I am glad we waited to buy this display. The colors are very nice. The quality is flawless. It also included every cable that you would possibly need. The only con, if the is one, is that it is almost too bright. We have adjusted the color temperature to a darker color and the display is still too dark. When watching dark movies you see the glow of the backlighting.
