The Asus PA248Q won't blow your mind with its performance, but with its $330 price, tons of useful OSD features, and plentiful ergonomic options, it may not have to.

The panel can be unscrewed from the foot stand and mounted on a wall.

Don't worry. It swivels to the right as well. Or is that left?

Sorry. I'd already decided to disconnect the connections before I remembered to take a picture of the pivot feature.

Yep. It tilts.

Just in case precise measurements are in order.

For when pinpoint swiveling counts.

Sometimes flat and wide can be a good thing. Like in the case of the PA248Q's foot stand.

The OSD array includes more buttons than it probably needs.

The joystick nub offers some control functionality, but not quite enough.

The grid overlay (accessed by pressing in the nub) can be useful if precision is important to you.

Also useful for determining how your pictures will look at varying sizes before you print.

The actual OSD offers plenty of options beyond the usual suspects.

From left to right: DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, VGA, and a headphone jack.

Four USB 3.0 downstream ports.
