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.
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.
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.
