2 out of 5 eggsASUS support not helpful and confusing

Pros: Monitor works as advertised, audio works isn't great but that's to be expected.

Newegg did a fabulous job for its part of taking my money and shipping me the original monitor. ASUS dropped the ball on the rest.

Cons: My monitor develop a vertical stripe of dead pixels from top to bottom in the middle of the screen. Tested to ensure it was not a cable or video card by using separate computer and cable input.

My biggest gripe was ASUS support overall. First off, I tried chat support for an RMA, they told me I had to call in, no biggie that's their policy that's fine.

I called the first number, 3 menus in this is not the right number for this particular product. Called the second number, this is the right place but not for creating RMA's. Called the third number, got a very helpful tech that got the RMA setup, however they couldn't do advanced RMA on the phone had to be via email so I could sign a document, fine no biggie that's their policy.

I receive the email, fill it out. Guess what? No return fax number or email address to tell me where to send this back to. For those curious its: Call back, sit on hold, menus etc to get to this part.

I received the advanced replacement for my monitor (which at this point my original monitor would no longer turn on, it just crapped out). Swap everything out. Guess what? No return label or instructions on where to send the defective monitor to! And, if I don't get it back within 14 days their policy is to charge you full price and not do anything else about it even if they receive the product on the 15day!

I am very dissapoint with ASUS support. I have always loved their products until this monitor incident.

TL;DR: Monitor had dead pixel veritical line, then died, ASUS support gave me trouble every step of the way for advanced RMA replacement, new monitor from the RMA works like a charm though. Still don't know how to send the old one back and am currently and have been on hold for over an hour to find out where to send it back to before they charge my credit card for not getting back in 14 days.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: So far nothing, will give a better review if it causes problems

Cons: Wobbly stand, took way to long to get here. Bought it on the 22nd, shipped on the 23rd, didn't get it until the 1st nearly 2PM

Other Thoughts: Shipping could be better and the stand could actually be made properly where it doesn't wobble all the time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please refer to page 2-2, “2.3 Detaching the arm/base (for VESA wall mount)”, Figure 2. You’ll have to tighten the two screws to make the stand more stable. If you’d like to discuss this topic with me, please contact me at

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointing

Pros: While it works, it's great.

Cons: After one month had a dead pixel, no big deal but annoying. After two months, monitor dies. I believe the back light went out so the monitor gets so dark it's unusable. RMA it back to ASUS. After two weeks of waiting, they email me back and say nothing is wrong and ship it back to me. I put it up and it appears to be working again for a few hours. The next day it's dead again. I have tried everything to get it working again. It's not my computer, the videocard, or the cables, it's the monitor; I've check everything. Maybe 1 time out of 10 it will suddenly start working, but as soon as it turns off for any reason, It's gone again. ASUS clearly didn't put any effort into finding out what is actually wrong so I guess I'm out my money now.

I have owned (and continue to own) 2 other ASUS displays but now will never buy from them again.

Other Thoughts: Just hope that you don't get a lemon because ASUS doesn't have your back.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: This is a great smaller display. Great back lighting. Display is crisp and clear. Stand was stellar for a display in this price range. Sub 100.00

Cons: Speakers are a little weak. Fine for basic windows sounds.

Not 1080....

Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic display for the price range. LED back lighting is smooth. Looks great and is very stable. Great purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsbad description

Pros: very low power, bright led back lit, no dead pixels

Cons: bad description, it says i can run it at 75Hz which is the reason i got it, called asus and their unskilled poor tech support tell me that my graphics card does not support 75Hz refresh rate... I have a GTX 470 :/ and my older monitor from hp ran fine at 75hz

Other Thoughts: gotta love the free shipping, just multiply the days they say by 2 and that's how long it will take to ship

Manufacturer Response:

Dear agentspaz,

Please refer to page 3-13 to 3-14: “3.4 Supported operating modes” of the User Guide. If you want to discuss this with me further, please contact me at and include ref#1072-8139 in the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsGood colour, solid stand, no 16:9 letterbox

Pros: Colors are nice, LED backlit is nice, decent automatic color presets (though they were a bit bright for me so I used Standard with some changes.)

HDMI works with an HDMI->DVI adapter.

I mounted it on a VESA monitor mount.

Cons: the screen is 16:10, but there is no 16:9 letterbox mode. This means I can't use it for a PS3 ):
