5 out of 5 eggsvery reliable monitor

Pros: I've had this monitor for over 3 years now. I am so happy with it, I came back and bought a second monitor a few months ago for a dual-monitor setup. Both monitors are still flawless and going strong. The built-in speakers are decent, but it's better to have your own separate speakers. I've used several brands in the past and something always broke after 2-3 years. The reliability of these monitors has converted me to an Asus fan and I will definitely choose them next time I buy a monitor of any kind.

Cons: It's an ordinary, decent monitor. If you're looking for 1080p or other fancy things, go elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: I've stacked a couple textbooks underneath my monitors to get them to the correct height for my eye-line. Depending on the height of your desk and chair, you may or may not need to do this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor

Pros: Nice clear resolution. Great monitor for gaming. Stable and speakers are good.

Cons: only have a verrrry small dead pixel dot in the middle of the screen, but it is absolutely unnoticeable and could be just shipping accident. Again, though, its unnoticeable while you are gaming or watching videos so its not a big problem. It's so small it blends in.

Other Thoughts: Recommended to people who wants a good monitor for their computer of any type. Gaming, everyday, business, etc. I give 5/5 eggs.

3 out of 5 eggs"ok"

Pros: Picture is fine
No Dead Pixels!

Cons: Speakers work ok but quality is nothing great and not very loud.
Not 1080p - not that this is a supprise but still a con

Other Thoughts: I'm a big ASUS fan and while this product is ok it is ONLY "ok".
Nothing special, but nothing worng with it either.
I feel like it should be cheaper though. ($89-119 range)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear techit88,

The built-in speakers for this monitor should provide you a decent sound quality, but if you require more sound, then getting hi-fi or desktop external speakers would be the better choice or a monitor that has 3-watts per speaker. For further assistance or if you’d like to discuss this topic, please contact me at and use this ref#1072-10472 in the subject line.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Worked great for a cheap monitor to get with my gaming PC. Have had it for over two years now and it is still going strong though it has been reduced to a secondary monitor since I upgraded to a 1080p ASUS. Def a recommended buy if your not going for HD.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little monitor

Pros: I've had this monitor for 6-7 months now, and I've had no problems.

Cons: It's a little small for me, I'm used to 23 inches and an HDTV. However, this is great for work.
