If you decide on a IPS LCD as opposed to the more common TN variety, you obviously care more about proper colour replication that you do your bank account. ASUS seems to have aimed for a middle ground with their 24" 1920×1200 PA246Q ProArt IPS LCD which you can get for under $500. Could ASUS pull off the low price without sacrificing quality?

Unfortunately, stepping up to an IPS-totting panel meant shelling out well over $600 but ASUS is now offering another route. Their ProArt 24" monitor seems to offer the impossible: an IPS panel, factory calibrated settings and good response times for under $500. Is this too good to be true?"
