ASUS PA248Q or Korean Monitor? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Let me know if it gets any better for you as I'm interested in this display. Did you buy it from Newegg? If so, do they pay to ship it back or do you have to pick up the return shipping charges?

Update: After taking an even closer look at the side of the monitor where the light is bleeding the most, I noticed that the bezel is somewhat "pinched" in the middle where the usb ports are on the left. It's almost as if they tightened it too much which is causing the bezel to squeeze in that spot and then making the rest of the bezel not sit as flush. Please excuse my ignorance if I'm using the wrong term when I refer to bezel.

I don't want to chance prying it loose a little just for the sheer fact I might damage it and then lose any chance of getting a refund.

@Jhnlngn: I did buy it from NewEgg and as far and I remember, I think they will be paying for the shipping back. However, I will confirm tomorrow and send you a PM.

Thanks Bricks. I'm thinking of ordering from them and saw their return policies but didn't see any info on shipping charges.

Hi guys, has anyone tried playing their PS3 on this monitor at 1080p/720p? Does it still look good? Do we get black bars on the top and bottom?
I am really not sure how the scaler in this thing works with a 1900x1200 resolution.


I am really inbetween this screen or one of the Korean Shimian 27" IPS screens to use with my video capture card (to record PS3 with)

This is my first post. I joined this site just because of this thread.

So here I am. And I must loudly ask:

WELL??????????!!!!







I can't imagine I'm the only one waiting to hear what happened. It's been more then half a year since the last post in this cliffhanger. What happened?????????????

Did the backlight problem resolve itself, as some people claims happens after a burn-in period?

This thread comes up when Googling the Asus, so I suspect many have come here searching for a real review from a real user who had a few real problems.

However, like tens of thousands of other threads since the earliest days of the internet, it is left unresolved and/or forgotten.

In the name of all that is holy, and for the scores of people over the next many years who will end up hear whilst searching for info about this specific monitor:

CLOSE THE CIRCLE!

I would also be interested to know if the PA248Q is a good monitor when jumping into the 16:10 24" market now that IPS is becoming somewhat affordable. This thread popped up on an OCN search as a "Recent" thread, actually!

EDIT: Also, what's this about only having 720p on dual link DVI? I thought the whole point of dual link was to speed up being able to display high resolutions.

Well, I gave up. Some people are pretty weird in this way. Hoped for an answer.

Mildly irresponsible.

I ended up getting the Asus PA248Q, which is a great monitor, but came with one dead pixel. Bummer. Should have sent it back while I could. It's not terribly easy to see though. So not a huge deal.

I read somewhere that Dell makes essentially the exact same monitor, and they have, supposedly, far better quality control. Maybe I should have got the Dell. Who knows.

Anyway, this thing needed the least amount of tweaking out of the box then any monitor I've ever owned before. And I thought that 16:10 would be weird, wrong! I love it.

Plus, it was cheap. Well, relatively.

Also, I assumed I'd be taking a monumental backwards step in gaming. I had been using a 21" Mitsubishi CRT for gaming, and when you are used to a CRT, everything else sucks! At least, in the world of fast gaming. So I already knew I was going to be bumming over the speed, lag, refresh, all those things which make a FPS experience so crappy if you are switching from a CRT to a current monitor. All I can say is, I was surprised. Not "OMG, ITS TOTALLY BETTER THEN THE CRT" sort of surprised. Just, kind of surprised. It wasn't as horrible a backwards step as I was dreading. I can live with it.
