Asus PA238QR vs. PA238Q

After reading some reviews of the PA238Q i'm interested.

I see there is an "R" version that's slightly cheaper.. can anyone help out with the difference?

From what I can tell.. one has a 10 bit look up table vs. an 8 bit. (whatever that is) does this make much of a difference? if you were picking between the 2 which one would you buy?

thanks.

  1. Seconding this question, I ran across this panel in the latest issue of Maxium PC, it was one of their most highly recommended choices. The real deal-maker for me was that the whole thing can pivot into portrait mode (like a giant tablet!)

    And yeah, while browsing NCIX I also saw that there's this odd "R" model. No idea what's different about it.

    There are several differences between the PA2238Q and PA238QR. Both have the same IPS LCD and the button layout is the same on both - on the right side of the display. The button functions differ between models.
    The other differences:
    The QR has speakers and a Line-in port while the Q has a headphone jack
    The QR has a"human presence" detector which turns the monitor on/off if it detects you are in front of it. (Not on Q)
    The Q has an input selector button to switch between HDMI/Displayport (Not on QR)
    The Q has a PIP/PBP mode to view two inputs at once (not on QR)
    The OSD has more control over precise colour adjustment on the Q model.
    The display presets on the QR have a "Game" mode and "Night View" mode (not on Q) The Q has a totally configurable "User" mode.
    The Q model has a"quickfit" button that gives onscreen patterns for grids, paper sizes or photo sizes
    According to documentation, the Q model includes a DisplayPort cable but not included with the QR.

    In general it appears that the PA238Q is made for the serious business user while the PA238QR is geared more toward the home office/gamer user.
    Hope this helps
