    brilliant review, you made me want to but it. until I looked at my bank balance. perhaps next month.

    I like the thicker design too, many of them now seem to focus on silly gimmicks like lighting.

    Thats such a nice looking monitor. I can’t believe how much the price has dropped.

    Although im saving for the ARIA 27 inch deal for £500, its only £200 more than this with much higher resolution. it will be all gone probably by the time i can afford it.

    246Q is way better if you look for color accuracity and etcs. because:

    PA26Q uses 10bit P-IPS + 12bit LUT instead of the 8bit e-IPS + 8bit LUT used in 28Q. Also 26Q uses WCG-CCFF which is also better to the cheap WLED.

    WLED = White LED – cheap. It’s not RGB-LED
    WCG-CCFL = Wide Color Gamut Cold Cathode Fluriscent Lamp = WIN

    WLED is only better if we speak about power comsumption and sizes.

    Also I can’t see CARD reader on the monitor, which is very important for the users that is aimed for this monitor. USB 3 is … anyways.

    If you see the prices 28Q is cheaper a lot than 26Q and this is normal.

    So for the end – 26Q outperforms the new 28Q which is orientated for mainstream designer/user.

    Does anyone know how compatible this screen is with gaming systems like PS3 and Xbox360?
    The resolution is 1900×1200, but, does this monitor have a scaler that readily converts 720p or 1080p up to 1900×1200?
    If so, does it generate a noticeable amount of input lag, or create black bars?

    Thanks for the review!

    Ok, based on your review, I just purchased one from BestBuy using the 10% off on-line coupon. If it’s as good as you make it out to be at this price, I likely won’t have too much to complain about.

  • Sybil

    The matt screen is what would stop me from buying this monitor. I really hate AG coating on monitor panels, even if it is considered light. I am looking for a 16:10 IPS, PLS, (or similar), monitor…..with a glossy, semi-glossy, or anti-reflective screen. The choices are very limited right now, but I am hoping that manufactures will start listening to consumers….and start giving us that choice!

  • Pauli

    I wonder if the Black Definition is measured with dynamic contrast enabled? If that is the case, i.e. the black definition is measured with backlight turned OFF, the results are useless.

    BTW, I hate it how low-end monitors are marketed with ridiculous dynamic contrast values such as 80,000,000:1 . Those numbers have nothing to do with reality. They are invented by the advertising department by just picking a number that is bigger than what competitors have advertised.
