2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing product and warranty

Pros: Beautiful display at a good price, especially after MIR, and 3-yr warranty with ASUS taking care of shipping both ways.

Cons: Built in speakers were disappointing, as I ended up using my former little cheap speakers instead. Display only lasted 1.5 yrs before complete failure. Shipping back to the mfr. was apparently very cheap, because it took a full week to get back to mfr., then the mfr. took a full week to turnaround the product, then it took at least a full week (don't have it back yet) to return to me. IMO that is utterly ridiculous! Furthermore, the mfr would not let me expedite the return shipping, even at my own expense, and I was provided no tracking number for the return until the morning of "projected delivery," which was a false alarm after all!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great monitor! Been using it since 2009!

2 out of 5 eggs8 months then died :(

Pros: Good price for size and rez.

Cons: It died on me after only 8 months!

Other Thoughts: Playing some CSGO my monitor randomly goes half green, after the game I turned off my PC when I turned it on again later it continued to speratically display different colors RGB. Something must have happened with the way it displays those primary colors but I have no idea how. Checked my cord and GPU but both worked fine

4 out of 5 eggsStill good

Pros: No significant issues. Looks great.

Cons: It is starting to show its age with a thicker, deeper enclosure. Accidentally hit the button next to the power on/off to cycle the input un-knowingly on occasion. It takes a few seconds to figure out why the screen is black.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Monitor

Pros: Excellent monitor for what it was planned - daily work with all kind of office documents and computer application development.
I have bought two of them during 2012 and both are working almost non-stop. Perfect quality, quick response.
I can recommend it without any hesitations.

Cons: Nothing to complain about.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Size of the monitor is perfect, whether gaming or just browsing the internet. Screen resolution remains with no dead pixels after a year. I have enjoyed the product

Cons: Over the last three months while using the computer in any number of scenarios, it randomly refreshes. Screen goes blank for 1-3 seconds. I cycle the power on it regularly. It happens while gaming, internet use, or system use, kind of annoying.

Other Thoughts: For the price good monitor, good size, minor issues, would recommend to any looking for a basic monitor

5 out of 5 eggsI have 3, boght 2 and the added 1

Pros: Speakers, multiple connection options Great resolution and size. I can wear a headset and get sound from different computers or TV input.

Cons: Difficult to get to the volume control. It would be great if there was separate up/down/mute buttons for when you are using something like a TV input.

Other Thoughts: I have three and I share them across a desktop, laptop and TV input. I use input director and share mouse and keyboard. Depending on what I'm doing I can allocate more screens to a computer or watch TV.
