ASUS PA246Q: 24.1-inch P-IPS LCD Monitor

Newegg: The ASUS PA246Q sports a 24.1-inch P-IPS (Professional IPS) TFT LCD with a 1920×1200 pixel format for a 16:10 aspect ratio, proper for professionals. P-IPS LCDs feature a 10-bit panel good for over a billion colors (read IPS, In-Plane Switching). Other specs include:

  • Response Time: 6ms
  • Brightness: 400 nits
  • Contrast Ratio: 50,000: 1 (dynamic)
  • Color Gamut: 98% Adobe RGB
  • Viewing Angles: 178/178
  • Adjustability: Tilt, swivel, height, pivot
  • Connectivity: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA
  • Other: 7-in-1 card reader, USB (2)

As usual the inflated dynamic contrast ratio figure can be completely ignored, unless a full LED backlight is used. In the case of the PA246Q it is not. ASUS focused on accurate color reproduction and included an internal 12-bit LUT (look-up table), which just means it has more colors to pick from. And six colors can be adjusted on the LCD: red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow. The rather well-spec’ed ASUS PA246Q has a fairly reasonable price: US$499.99.
