    Created to meet the needs of graphic designers and other professionals, the IPS-paneled ASUS PA238Q joins the ProArt Series of displays as a 23”, LED-backlit model with native 1920 x 1080 resolution. It reproduces 100% of the sRGB color space, with every individual monitor precision calibrated at the factory to ensure unmatched color accuracy. The PA238Q ships with ASUS-exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale software to display photos and documents in their true size on screen. In terms of ergonomics, a fully adjustable and sturdy stand complements a wide I/O range, which includes HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, D-sub, and multiple USB ports.

    Meticulous factory calibration
    Guaranteeing authentic color performance, the PA238Q’s IPS panel is capable of delivering 100% of the sRGB color space, a feature pivotal in professional graphics work. IPS technology allows for 178° viewing angles, preventing color loss and wash even from extreme vertical and horizontal viewing directions. Precision individual calibration at the factory guarantees an average delta E factor lower than 5 for improved color fidelity. The internal firmware of the PA238Q uses a 10-bit lookup table for RGB coloration, going beyond the standard 8-bit table used in conventional monitors. This results in smoother and more accurate color gradation and reproduction. The contrast ratio comes in an incredible 50,000,000:1, generating true dark/light distinction and spectacular image quality. Combined with a 16:9 screen ratio, these features make the PA238Q a very capable monitor for entertainment applications such as movie viewing and gaming.

    Productivity-boosting features
    ASUS bundles exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale functionality with the PA238Q, powering true-sized displays of photos and documents on the screen. Format sizes supported by the software include A4, letter, 8” x 10”, 5” x 7”, 4” x 6”, 3” x 5”, and 2” x 2”. It also supports alignment, centimeter and inch-based grids for added flexibility. Users can activate QuickFit via a simple hotkey at any time. This goes along picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture viewing for easier multitasking. Additionally, the PA238Q’s stand integrates fully-adjustable height, tilt, swivel, and pivot, making for easier work and enjoyment. The four conveniently-located USB ports on the PA238Q (two on the side, two on the back) afford easy access to a wide range of storage devices and file formats, helping users display content instantly.

    Extensive input/output options
    As a fully-featured high-end monitor, the PA238Q offers a complete port and connector array. HDMI makes it effortless to insert the PA238Q into any modern multimedia and content sharing setup, while the inclusion of DisplayPort, DVI-D, and D-sub maintains connectivity options with a wide range of devices so consumers can use the monitor as a single display for multiple sources.

    this looks a lot like the Dell U2311H, even the button placement, bevel width, base stand, and side USB ports are exactly the same, I wouldn't be surprised if the internals are the same as well. In fact..I wouldn't be surprised if this IS a Dell U2311H with ASUS packaging.

    Other than the different I/O options, a 10-bit LUT and a look that is consistent with another ASUS ProArt display, yeah, it's the same thing.

    ASUS uses less AG coating which is a good thing, this will be better than Dell 2311H, all i'm worried about is that LED illumination.

    What is that weird "pretty for girls" plastic lace pattern around the screen? Is it supposed to be some kind of useful measuring scale?! Seriously :wtf:

    And x1080? This is 2011 not 2007. Yawn.

    I'll wait until they deliver "2560x1440 resolution or higher"

    Ya, it has ruler marks around the inside bezel.

    The styling is similar to Dell, but thats the market they are going after i guess. Its a good screen though, i would buy it over the Dell if i were buying an IPS screen. I'm looking at a 120Hz screen myself.....

    Im still waiting for an affordable IPS 16:10 panel at 1920x1200.
    You can get cheap IPS panels for around £150 but want something with better colour accuracy and you need to go over £200.

    EDIT: The screen in the OP is aesthetically appealing to me.

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if ASUS made Dell's monitor, then released their own.
