IPS, Speakers sound good, 5 video inputs, Pivot stand. 4 port USB Hub.
Human sensor doesn't work with everybody.
No sound out port.
Great monitor, love the IPS, I plugged it in and the colors was perfect. Built-in speakers sound good with no cracking. Monitor's menu is very easy to use. The human sensor is cool, but doesn't work with everyone who sits in front of the screen. best monitor I ever owned, im really happy with this monitor.

Experience: 60 Days
Height adjustable
No dead pixels
High quality
Great IPS monitor for the price. Height adjustable as well, which is perfect. You can't go wrong.

-One of cheapest ips panels you can buy
-colors are decent
-portrait or landscape swivel
-Red bar across bottom of monitor( prefer solid black)
-motion sensor turns the monitor off quite a bit even though you are in front of it. Best to turn the feature off
Bought for a video editing set up. I am surprised of the quality for the price, I have had zero problem with it since purchase.

Experience: 5 Days
All the ports you will ever need. VGA, Display port, HDMI, DVI-D, USBs.
IPS Panel - awesome viewing angles
the best thing that attracted me to this model is the 90 degree pivot feature.. Its great for professional work and reading as it turns into a longer 23 inch monitor - ie it's a widescreen. It is heavy, but I can live with that, amazing build quality. Will last you ages. Really future proof, and for the deal i bought it at, that is just barely 10 over two hundred, this is a steal in it's class. will be more than good for gaming.. 23 inches is big enough for - noting that I use a 19 inch setup at work. Always love to be home :D.

Thanks NCIX for putting the lowest deal on this. trust me i shopped around!

BTW - I got 3.

Experience: 3 Months
Fantastic colour reproduction and the sharpest display I have ever owned.
Stand is totally adjustable and the screen can rotate.
Comes with VGA and DVI cables
Has DisplayPort and HDMI ports.
Four USB 2.0 ports
Three year rapid replacement warranty (with free two-way shipping)
A little pricey (you get what you pay for!)
Two of the USB ports are on the back.
Less features than the PA238Q
After installing the monitor the first thing I did is turn the brightness way down to 50%. The colours on this IPS screen are so much more vibrant than my previous monitors. The controls on the right side of the screen are easy to use. I have no dead pixels and I see no sign of any bleeding that some have reported on the web. I was a little hesitant about paying the extra over a similar sized TN panel, but now that I can compare LCDs side by side, the extra is a worthwhile investment. My next monitor purchase may be its big brother, the PA246Q with a P-IPS display and a 10-bit LUT (1.07 billion colours!)

S-IPS, DisplayPort
speakers suck, dvi cable is no good
the color quality when in sRGB is excellent, bought for video, games and web deveelopment, overall quality is excellent

hdtv is the standard at the moment and this likely will be in use for quite a while and this panel make hdtv look good

the dvi cable was no good, need dual link while the cable was only single link

Fantastic Monitor.Crystal clear.
Getting the settings just right is a little tricky
Use it as a second monitor attached to 18.5" laptop. Would buy another anytime.

Beautiful, amazing colour, fully adjustable stand.
Human sensor is not always entirely accurate.
I thought my Samsung was vibrant and well adjusted until I plugged this in. The difference is unreal, I can't wait for my 24" to show up as well.
Extremely happy.

As far as the human sensor issue goes, it's a smart feature and for a couple days it seemed to work fine, but then one day it shut off while I was sitting right in front of it. I'm not sure if it was the shirt I was wearing playing tricks on it or what. So I just turned the sensor off entirely.

Very crisp image, vibrant colours, awesome viewing angles, very flexible (height adjust, pivot, etc)
On my monitor there are 2 spots where the backlight bleeds on the side. It's not a major issue though, and they are only really noticeable when the screen is dark.
Big upgrade from my old 1440x900 19" Dell LCD. This is my first time using an LED backlit monitor, and I must say, it makes a huge difference.

- inputs (DP, HDMI, DVI)
- colours are crisp and clear
- great alternative to their more expensive Dell counterparts
- DP cable not included
- human sensor can be annoying
- cabling can be an issue if you are trying to run a multi-monitor setup in portrait view (e.g. in a 3 monitor setup: hiding the bezels of the left and right screens behind the middle screen)
I bought 3 of these for an Eyefinity setup at home. You get what you pay for (and cheaper compared to similar Dell monitors). The Displayport (DP) input is a welcome addition for this price range. Would definitely buy 2 more for a 5-monitor setup if my budget permits. Has almost everything you need for single or multi-monitor configurations.

It gets 4 stars because the human sensor is gimmicky and it does not include a DP cable.
