I bought this monitor, specifically for photo editing in Adobe Lightroom. For picture editing the screen colours have to be perfect, or the output, especially if printed by a third party can be very hit and miss. Only IPS monitors can really live up to this and even then, they can be very variable as to quality and of course need regular calibration. The Asus comes from the factory with a very good initial calibration, which I have not yet had to alter.

At the very high end of the monitor market are the Eizo and NEC monitors which usually run into the four figure price bracket. Among users though the Asus PA246q had a very good reputation, especially at about a third the cost, this new updated version the, PA248q, takes that monitor and improves on it. Sitting next to an Eizo, I really can't perceive any real-world difference in the image displayed once the brightness level had been set to the 120cms level.

At this price level, the Asus really has only one serious competitor the Dell U2410, but in all of the reviews the Asus just betters the Dell in each small way. I would certainly recommend this monitor for photo work. At this price it really is superb value for money.

I was looking for an affordable monitor that was good for photo editing. I was replacing an Asus I had had for about 5 years and this one seem to fit the bill. After setting it up and looking at my photos with it I never realised how much unnecessary editing I had been doing. I took some fresh photos and needed to do very little editing and had them printed to see if what I was getting on screen was what I could expect from the printed version. The difference was amazing, I no longer need to sit at the computer messing with colours and exposures now as this monitor shows the photos pretty much as they were shot. I always wondered why my top end camera wasn't getting everything quite right.
I will point out that I didn't use the colour profile set on the monitor out of the box, I used a Spider 2 screen calibrator. I use it on any monitor I have, even my laptop. Anyone doing any serious photo editing should calibrate their monitor every 3 months or so.
The other plus of this screen is the viewing angle. You can look at this screen from almost any angle, left, right, up and down and the image stays pretty much the same.
A great monitor for the price and I would really recommend it.

I bought this for my husband so what follows are his comments.

Firstly, a big thank you to my wife for providing this excellent bit of kit.

I use my PC mainly for photo editing and I found it hard using my previous monitor to match prints with what appeared on-screen: prints were always darker than the screen image so a fair amount of guesswork was needed. The old monitor was OK but what I call 'everyday ordinary'.

The Asus is a leap forward. It was simple to install, needing minimal set up - mainly setting the screen at the right height and angle to suit my viewing position. Vertical adjustment and back/forward tilt can be achieved with one-handed, light pressure while rotation from landscape to portrait orientation is easier using both hands (but still easy).

The screen can also be rotated around its vertical axis which would be useful to any user not able to sit directly in front of it; the support column rotates in the weighted base with degree markings etched into the base so if it is moved you can easily return the screen to its original position. Unlike cheaper monitors there's no discernible variation in colour of brightness if you change viewing angle by moving off to one side. The stand is solid and stable and the whole thing has a clean, modern design with a slim, lightly textured, black surround to the screen (and the screen doesn't feel 'spongy' when cleaned, unlike our other two monitors).

All connections are on the back of the monitor, clearly labelled and accessible. I haven't yet found a need to use the four USB3 outlets on the left side of the connection panel but one will be handy in the near future for another external HDD.

After weeks of trying to decide which monitor was right I finally decided to go with two of the PA248Q's.I have had them for 8 months, use them on a daily basis and can honestly say I couldn't be happier with them. I have had no problems with the light leakage or dead pixels. I am a Graphic Designer (yes, a designer who uses PC, shock horror!) who dabbles in Photography and video editing. I'm also a PC gamer and this monitor fits the bill for all three. People say the refresh rate is too slow on them for gaming, well if it is then I've never noticed. I mostly play indie games so maybe I'm not putting them up to much of a challenge however I do play modern FPS and driving games occasionally and have never seen any delays with the response times of the monitor. Websites look great too, text and images are incredibly sharp. Pages I used to regularly visit on my old monitor suddenly sprung to life. I watch a lot of YouTube and it makes some of the 1080p and up videos look incredible! I also use them monitors for watching movies, again no problems here with light leakage. Films look amazing on Blu Ray!!

In hindsight I wish I had bought the 23" model because two 24" monitors is a bit too wide but hey, it's only a small gripe. One other negative I have found is that the colours vary ever so slightly between the two. Now this might not be an issue for all, (especially if you only plan to buy one) but if you're working with colours on a very precise level it sort of defeats the object of the monitors design. My left monitor has a stronger cast of yellow where my right is more red. I have tried everything to reduce this and get them to match but nothing I can do seems to fix it. I noticed it a lot for the first month, dragging images between them I could tell the difference instantly.
