Asus ProArt PA249PQ full review

With a rugged, industrial look and superb colour consistency across the entire display, the Asus is one to consider

There’s a certain industrial aesthetic going on with the 24in Asus ProArt PA249PQ, starting with the sturdy stand already fitted in place.

There are one of each of the usual interfaces: HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and VGA, and a clutch of four USB 3.0 ports down the side.

While the frame is fairly thick, the back is rugged but stylish. It all adds up to a heft 10.4kg and a hungry 72W power consumption.

The menu controls are built into the front side panel and, unusually, are large, physical buttons complete with a tiny thumbstick with which to navigate menus. Two of the other buttons are user-configurable shortcuts, defaulting to brightness and contrast. Like other units, you can’t read the labels when the power is on.

It’s worth noting that the display is 16:10 aspect ratio resulting in resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, giving some extra height on the vertical.

However, the ProArt PA249PQ is all about colour with a 10-bit colour display and 12-bit internal LUT.
