I have this and the dell mentioned as an alternative.

It's weird. It's like Asus tried to make a Dell and Dell tried to make an asus. Overall I like the asus better but I like the dell add-on speaker option with the power coming from the monitor.

Is it better to get it from amazon or newegg?
@EliteGeek. Amazon has a better return policy. No restocking fee. If you have Amazon prime you get free 2day shipping (you can start a free trial). Also in my experience Amazon tends to have better customer service.

Is this better than the Dell U2412M??

Asus Warranty sucks ( did I say really really really really sucks ) and this monitor has a lot of issues with bleeding based on the reviews on NE and AMZ.

Could care less about the USB 3.0 Hub. And Dell has decent warranty. I have been happy with their warranty replacement though I never had to replace any of their monitors. The older ones keep running good forever. Not sure about the quality of the cheaper newer ones.

The price is significantly higher than some of the other 'consumer grade' displays, but these displays have value for me. I happen to prefer 1200p over 1080p for just about everything I do on my PC (mostly programming, web browsing, and some gaming). The VESA mounts allowed me to put these on a tri-monitor stand, which affords me some more desk real estate. The HDMI and DisplayPorts make a 3+ display Eyefinity setup possible, which I am utilizing.

If you aren't mounting these, prefer 1080p, and don't need the DisplayPort, yes, you can get a much better deal on a display without these features. Smilie

What's your experience with ASUS warranty? There is a slight amount of bleed on all three of my PA248Qs, but it's only barely noticeable when dark colors are displayed.

You really will have to experience it to realize how bad they are. You will be surprised. It is like being sent to Guantanamo for saying a curse word. But there is a lot of negative comments on their warranty for ages. So the wise thing to do is not buy any of their products with known issues - especially after the AMZ 30 day return policy.

With Technology getting so much easier to manufacture and so easy to Quality control these days, I would rather spend about $300 and get a know brand for the sake of the 1920x1200 resolution. No point in buying an item with known issues to save about 20-30% of the cost. I have 3 of the Dell 2405 ( from 2005 ) and they are still running great considering I paid $630+ for them back then - but have gotten my money's worth.

I bought two of these during last sale.

Please note: DO NOT GET THIS MONITOR if you are using DVI port.

This monitor is known to have flickering/turning black issues with DVI port.

Google Asus PA248Q flickering problem and you will find tons of information.

I'd stay away from ASUS monitors.

Ditto on the value. In addition to the list above, I wanted to be able to turn the monitor to Portrait mode using the included stand. Using a used Dell U2412M from Amazon Marketplace for the last 2 weeks. I will be returning it because of bleeding issues.

Purchased the Asus via Amazon.com. I can always return for free within 30-days. I have to pay tax for both Amazon & Newegg purchases (in CA).

Gooood price. I just got a 2713HM Dell 2560x1440 and two 23" Dells 2312HM in portrait mode.

I wonder if I should unload the 23" Dells and get two of these to run in portrait mode in a tri-monitor set-up.
I figure all dells would be more uniform looking but that 16:10 aspect ratio is pretty good.

New set-up
24 (portrait) - 27 (landscape) - 24 (portrait)

A lot of people seem to single out this monitor for backlight bleeding, but isn't that the most common with IPS monitors? Search "*Insert Monitor Model* Bleeding" into Google Images and you're bound to get results. For example, "Catleap Bleeding" yields: http://bit.ly/14K6Wnr. For me personally, b/c I'm OCD, I'm more concerned with dead / hot pixels. I'd know exactly where they are and would notice them all the time. A risk you take with any monitor, but easier to return versus if you were purchasing a Korean panel from overseas.

I only used the Asus for 5 hours yesterday after purchasing, but so far no flickering on DVI. I'll keep an eye on it. Not sure if that should be apparent immediately or if it becomes a problem over time. I'll test some BF3 on it today to see if it happens.

Had to do a double take on what makes this monitor double the price compared to a smaller, 23" lenovo IPS that didnt make FP http://slickdeals.net/f/6000154-Lenovo-LI2321s-23-IPS-LED-Backlit-Monitor-HDMI-VGA-DVI-1920-x-1080-16-9-14-ms-response-10-000-000-1-DCR-140-frys-shipping-varies-5-1-5-2-13?v=1

Im guessing this 24" is better in every single metric, if you need said features, otherwise, Id hold out for lesser featured IPS sub $200 monitors if you are not pro, gamer, or know what IPS is.
