Being a smaller version of a superstar monitor is no mean feat. In fact, with its first-rate performances, the Asus PA246Q is a particularly hard act to follow, and expectations are riding high for the Asus PA238Q. Will this 23-inch Full HD IPS-screen monitor be the second display in the Asus ProArt series to bag a five-star review? Time to find out! Asus has clearly understood what made the PA246Q such a great monitor and has carried all that over to the PA238Q. The PA238Q therefore has an unusual but highly practical build, including a fully adjustable stand (portrait mode, height adjustable, swivel base), as well as four of the main video connections—HDMI, DVI, VGA and even DisplayPort. Although it doesn't have built-in speakers, Asus has equipped this monitor with a headphones socket that can be used to transit sound input coming from the HDMI or DisplayPort to a pair of headphones or a 2.1 speaker kit. This monitor also has four USB ports, with two on the side of the screen and another two around the back. Asus has chosen to use an IPS screen panel in this display. As a result, the PA238Q offers wider viewing angles than with frequently used TN panels, and colours remain more consistent across the screen.
Fed up with cheap and not-always-cheerful monitors based on TN panel technology? Then get a load of the new Asus PA238Q. At around £235, it's pricier than your average 23-inch TN screen. But, joy of joys, it's got an IPS panel.IPS stands for in-plane switching and just so happens to be the finest panel technology known to man or beast. That's why Apple, for instance, exclusively uses IPS in its iPhones and iPads. It's simply the best when it comes to colour accuracy and viewing angles.As it happens, colour accuracy is a big part of the remit for the Asus PA238Q. It's pitched as a low-cost screen for graphics professionals. However, Asus is also claiming 6ms response times, which makes for a tantalising all-round package. Could this affordable, colour-accurate screen also be killer for games and at the movies?In order to find out, we made use of the freely available LCD test suite available at www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/. Test pages for everything from white saturation to contrast, viewing angles and even pixel response are provided. Armed with these objective metrics and our own experience, we're able to deliver the definitive verdict on the Asus PA238Q.
