4 out of 5 eggsReally good monitor

Pros: I've had this monitor for about 4 years now and it's yet to give me a problem.
Great resolution and vivid colors

Cons: Ports are on the bottom, which makes installation a pain at times if you need to move your monitor a lot.
You can't choose where the sound comes from, so if you rely on the built in speakers but also like to use the headphone jack in the monitor, that can be a pain.

Other Thoughts: If it went on sale again, I'd definitely consider getting a couple more.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent monitor for the price, feel there are better deals.

Pros: -Works
-Look breddy gud.

Cons: -HDMI port is incredibly touchy. I can't rotate it at any angle without having to dance with the HDMI cable for minutes on end. Wouldn't buy if I knew this beforehand.
-Speakers are abysmal. Imagine taking a cell phone speaker, placing it in a tin can, and playing a midi version of Metallica's Unforgiven.
-Fairly large and clunky.

Other Thoughts: Had it for about two years now, still working fine save for the HDMI port. The piano black is as always a dust magnet, not a fault of the product.. I think everyone knows this by now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Tyler,

Hello, I would like to thank you for taking your time in writing this review. We certainly value your feedback. It is unfortunate that your HDMI port is touchy, so you have to move it a certain angle to get a picture to show up, and that you are not happy with the speaker quality. Have you tried using a different HDMI cable to see if it isn't just your cable? Sorry for the inconvenience this caused you. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at and I will help you to the best of my abilities. I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is N160461705

Thanks for choosing ASUS

5 out of 5 eggsCheap dependable hidden gemstone monitors

Pros: Our company uses literally 1,000's of these monitors and they have by far the lowest failure rate of any bottom shelf monitor of it's size. I have taken several of these all the way apart and the LCD panel itself is of a quality of most monitor 2X it's price. Comes with all the cables you might want except HDMI and has all the inputs. Also has audio out which is not always mentioned.

Cons: The plastic case is screwless and literally fall apart when hit from the wrong angle. luckily it all snaps right back together. Some of the cables inside are help in place by a cheaper tape than some.

2 out of 5 eggsView Great, Audio BAD

Pros: Video is very good and replaced older units

Cons: Audio is so sub-standard, these monitors should not be listed as "with speakers"

Other Thoughts: Purchased two units for work. Intentionally looked for monitors with speakers to allow employees sounds, but not excess cables or too much/loud sound.

The sound at max volume at all settings would not wake a sleeping baby.

I will keep monitors b/c too difficult to return, but sound is VERY SUB-PAR.

View is good

I give two eggs because it meets it primary purpose as a display very well. If it had basic TV sound I would give full eggs, but that is not the case with this model (we have two of them now and I will here complaints from workers)

Pros: +Decent Design / Stand.
+All cables besides HDMI.
+Felt well made.

Cons: - Visual Quality was substandard.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Solid construction, great picture, no dead pixels, easy setup, very well priced.

Cons: A bit thick but it's acceptable, speakers are extremely weak.

Other Thoughts: Speakers really suck on this thing. Purchased for an office environment and you can barely hear it with the speakers turned all the way up. The speakers and the thickness knock it down from a perfect rating.

2 out of 5 eggsWill Not Run At 75hz

Pros: Great color reproduction.

Cons: Short base. Will not run at specified maximum refresh rate at native resolution.

Other Thoughts: If you're expecting to order a monitor that runs at 75hz or higher this isn't the monitor you are looking for. We purchased this monitor primarily because it's specifications said it supported 75hz.
