Asus PA246Q display - Asus PA246Q display
Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:26PM | Filed under: Monitors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

We’re witnessing an oversaturation of the wide-use monitor market. The price range has shrunk so much that something simply has to be pushed out on the cheaper end, while something new has to appear to refresh the more expensive one. ASUS’ PA246Q doesn’t seem connected to this story in any way at first. It’s clearly labelled Pro and has a red line on it, so that it matches a DSLR objective, which is all that pros look for, right? The frame around the display contains metric and imperial unit scales, while the stand is optimised for measuring swivel angle in degrees. A separate button, clearly labelled with a removable sticker, calls several different templates, such as the centimetre net or A4 paper format. These are displayed over the image coming from your PC, supposedly significantly speeding up some processes in the graphics editing department. How these are better than the graphics tools on your PC, and why anyone would change the DPI settings of the PC to match those of the monitor, just so as to approximately place the image onto a rarely used paper format in professional publications, remains a mystery to us…
