ASUS PA249Q Pro IPS Monitor Review

ASUS PA249Q Pro IPS Monitor

On-Screen Display

The On Screen Display is well laid out and very easy to navigate. One of the best features is that as well as the flashy movie modes and suchlike that appear on every monitor, there is also a preset for the colour-calibrated version. So no matter how much you tweak and fiddle, or how much somebody else does, you're never more than a couple of clicks away from the factory defaults.

The secret trick up the sleeve of the PA249Q are some preinstalled overlays. There are loads of them, all offering different screen overlays to ensure that you're accurate at all times. Even if you don't understand how to set up your image editing program of choice, you're guaranteed to be able to get your family a nice 8x10 thanks to the ASUS overlay, and it will be well cropped following the rule of thirds thanks to another overlay.

I wish more 24 inch monitors came with this resolution. I sort of miss my old Dell 24 inch that had 1920x1200.

I know what you mean, I liked the little extra, but those were usually 16:10's weren't they?
