Sports 1920x1200-pixel IPS display.

Asus has unveiled its PA249Q Pro Art monitor during the Consumer Electronics Show 2013.

The 24-inch monitor sports a 1,920x1,200-pixel IPS display, which boasts a 16:10 aspect ratio. It's predominately focused on consumers who require a professional grade monitor.

According to the PC manufacturer, the PA249Q monitor is pre-calibrated to the highest accuracy of any screen in its category. It also boasts 100 percent Adobe RGB color reproduction, joined by customizable color adjustment options and four USB 3.0 ports.

Additionally, Asus QuickFit Virtual Scale is included. The component displays images and documents in their actual size, which the firm brands as "what you see is what you get" accuracy.

While pricing information has yet to be unveiled, the Asus PA249Q Pro Art monitor is currently scheduled for a release during March 2013.

    Well if it is lower in price, better uniformity, and faster response time than the PA248Q and PA246Q then i will seriously consider buying one. Or should i wait for 2500x1600 monitors if such equipment at lower price points ever gonna come out? Intel predicted 2560x1440 to go mainstream this year.

    Currently it's all about price. Until 2560 hits a £180 price point, many people will stay away, more so thant you need a £400 card to game at that native resolution.

    I've been looking into buying a 1920x1200 monitor for gaming (an IPS). What does everyone suggest that isn't too expensive (like over $300/$350)?

    Seriously, 2013 and theycome up with this. What does this offer that my 3 year old DELL 2410 1.07 Billion color art monitor doesn't? Time to make 24" monitors with more than 1920 pixels isn't it?

    Im waiting for UberHD to become more widespread before spending my $3k budget on new monitors.

    I think the difference here is that its not LG, Apple, or Dell with this monitor. Its ASUS. If I had to choose I would get the ASUS purely because its an ASUS.

    Where are all the damn 120hz monitors! Where's the innovation to get IPS quality under 2ms response time!?

    I don't understand why display technology is so stagnant. When LCDs were first coming up they were driving response time down every year. Hell, even 2ms is still too much when you compare that to an old CRT. 120hz monitors finally came out, but they were marketed almost for the wrong reason, and they're overpriced. Yes, you can use them for 3D, but they also allow you to play games WITHOUT VSYNC! So, less mouse lag, no tearing, smoother motion on-screen, and less smearing. All monitors should be moving to this frequency. Of course, the holy grail would be IPS quality at 120hz TN speeds, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon at the pace companies are going.

    The difference between this and the 248q is that the previous is 100% sRGB, whereas this one is 100% Adobe RGB. Big difference.

    I hope that when the review is done, there will be comparison to PA248Q.

    The specs look almost exactly the same. But if the gamut is wider, it may indicate that RGB-LED backlight is used instead of white LED. Let's hope so.

    I used to have PA246Q, but it was broken after 1 year of use (a blue vertical line appeared on screen). Since that model was no more available and there was no replacement, I got full refund.

    Unfortunately PA248Q is downgrade from PA246Q. P-IPS panel replaced with IPS, 10 bit color depth reduced to 8 bit, wide gamut CCFL backlight replaced with white LEDs, no memory card reader.
    Since P-IPS monitors from other manufacturers cost twice as much as PA246Q, I am considering to downgrade to PA248Q or PA249Q.
