5 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor

Pros: - Big screen. The size of the monitor is perfect. I have my tower on top of my desk to prevent a bunch of dog hair getting into the case and a 23" monitor I had before just was dwarfed by the case. This screen is perfect and looks good from about 2 feet away.

- No dead pixels. That is always good. However a lot of people have wrote that they show up after a year. Only time will tell.

- Pretty solid packaging. Everything looked like it was well protected.

- As far as built in speakers go, I felt they were pretty good. I haven't owned any other monitors with built in speakers but I hear everything just fine when it is turned up. But I also have no comparison to judge from.

Cons: - Being a 27" at a 1920x1080, if you get closer than two feet, which obviously not very many people do, it does start to look a little grainy. From where I sit though, it looks good.

Other Thoughts: If you want a big monitor for a decent price, then I would recommend this one. The stand I have found is a 9/10 on sturdiness, unless you really begin to shake the desk.

3 out of 5 eggsStarting to worry

Pros: Big. I can fit a lot more stuff on the screen. Nice center piece to a 3 monitor setup

Cons: Snaps and flickers.

Other Thoughts: Usually once a day I will hear a loud pop, the screen will flicker and everything will be fine. Makes me worry how long it will last.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Norleck,

If you are hearing a loud pop noise coming from your monitor, please email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N150308721. That is something that should not be happening, and if you are still within your manufactures warranty, I would suggest a RMA. If you would like more information, feel free to email me at any time.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

Best regards,
Jolene

2 out of 5 eggsDamaged upon delivery

Pros: The monitor appears to be in working condition even though it was damaged during delivery or in the warehouse prior to delivery.

Cons: The box was damaged upon receipt of delivery. There was tape holding the box together where it had been dropped or crushed by something. The damage was thru the outer box and into the protective Styrofoam damaging the corner of the monitor. The monitor seems to be working however it is damaged. Some sort of discount or refund should be provided. There is a rapid 3 year replacement for this item advertised by ASUS. Pictures were taken of the box prior to opening and examining the contents. Pictures can be provided as proof of damage.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to tread about your LCD being damaged upon receiving it. If you received your LCD damaged from Newegg, please contact them for a replacement. As they would be held accountable for any shipping claims and damages since it was shipped from there warehouse to you. I would advise that you contact them immediately so that they are aware of the situation. Your ASUS manufacturers warranty does not cover any damages on the monitor. The warranty only covers hardware related incidents. If you would like to discuss this issue further feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150259881.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Screen!@

Pros: Had the webcam version of the screen and decided to get two more so I went with the built in speaker versions for the cheaper price. Currently run in NVIDIA surround with no issues!

Cons: The Bezels are think so surround gaming has huge gaps between screens.

Other Thoughts: Overall the screens are great for gaming and if the bezels were thinner would be perfect for surround. I do run them in surround now though and its only a minor inconvenience.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Came extremely well protected. Just about every surface, front and back, was covered by protective film to prevent scratching. Set-up was very easy and on screen adjustments didn't require a high level of knowledge to tweak performance. I'm running an NVIDIA GeForce video card and this monitor just pops with resolution, speed, color, and massive viewing area. Also, NO dead pixels. I'm using the monitors speakers which are located in the back of the screen. I initially thought the location might be a problem but this proved to be false because they sound good to me.
Overall, this monitor really exceeded my expectations.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsGood Response Time, Poor Color and Build

Pros: Great response time
Compatibility with both HDMI and DisplayPort

Cons: Screen shorts out frequently after about a year, will hear loud static and then the screen blacks out resetting power cord usually fixes it
Cannot use hdmi and dvi cables plugged in at same time
Color representation washed out compared to other monitors

Other Thoughts: Worked great for about 14 months and then started to have a lot of issues, not even worth going through the RMA process.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Lex,

I am sorry to hear about the troubles you are having with your ASUS LCD after a years time. Have you tried using a different wall outlet to plug your monitor into to see if it still gives you the same static noises? Do you have a dual monitor set up that you want to use both the DVI and HDMI cable at the same time? The difference between HDMI and DVI is that HDMI supports both video and audio, while DVI only supports video. Have you tried to calibrate your computers graphics card settings to fix the washed out colors? If you would like to speak more about these topics, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com. Please be sure to also include this case number N150118148, in the subject line of your email as well.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a huge 27" monitor that works beautifully. I haven't connected the speakers and don't plan to as I have 5.1 speakers. I have always liked ASUS products, but never bought one of their monitor, I'm glad I did.

Cons: I don't like how hard it is to screw in the screw on the DVI located closer to the stand. I was only able to get one tightened.

Other Thoughts: The monitor was shipped to me without any problems with it.

1 out of 5 eggsI would never think ASUS would do this to one of it's loyal customers.

Pros: - Great Price
- Great Size
- Nice colors
- Work for what I needed (till 5 days later)

Cons: I am a Engineering Major, so when I ordered this monitor on 11/11/2014 I assumed that it would work great for my finals, because it's all online (keep in mind my old monitor stop working). Which it did workout great till 5 days later; the screen went green on one of my finals!

I assumed I could get a return/refund thru newegg mainly for the reason it left a bad taste in my mouth, but hear what happened. ASUS told me when I call them I had to go thru Newegg 30 day policy. Which made perfect sense to me, so I did. Fail to realize that the box cut out for the code was needed for a return, but I had shipped the code out on the rebate. As soon as Newegg saw I didn't have the code like a normal person would have shipped it off for the rebate asap, they sent me back a broken monitor with no refund! I try calling ASUS from their rebate department, but after calling 3 times to figure out if they can send me back the cut out of the serial number.. the line doesn't work.

Has ASUS helped me with my issue yet with their product under the first month of a 3 year warranty? No. Has Newegg did anything to help me? No. And I'm truly disappointed that I have done nothing but buy buy buy from Newegg and ASUS, but when it's time for a return for a 5 days DOA. I get my broken monitor back with no refund in a legit amount of time to actually return it under warranty. I swear ASUS I can't believe your customer service is how it is in the rebate department and if I have to spend more than a week to deal with just figuring out what I can do. I will not buy anything ASUS ever ever ever again.

Other Thoughts: If they help me the way they should've from the start, I will rewrite the review, but as of right now.. it's the truth.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear TruelyKnowBetter,

I do apologize for this current service support experience. Unfortunately, once you have sent us the UPC code for the rebate, we are not authorized to return it back to you. If your monitor is not functioning as it should, I would be more than happy to set you up with an ASUS RMA. Please email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N141281578. And I would be more than happy to help further discuss with you, your ASUS RMA options.

Best regards,
Jolene
