2 out of 5 eggshumming noise

Pros: VERY bright, excellent image quality for office work

Cons: when any grid pattern takes up more than around 10% of the screen you get a noticeable high pitched humming/buzzing sound, for example if you have a spreadsheet open on the screen it makes the sound. As soon as I move the spreadsheet over to my main monitor the sound goes away.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please ensure that you keep any electronic devices away from the monitor. If the noise only occur on certain applications (e.g. spreadsheet), you may want to lower the contrast and check your video card settings. If you would like to discuss more about this topic with me, please contact me at and include ref#1072-10267 in the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice monitor

Pros: Very easy to use. Comes with all the cables you could want.The volume, brightness, and other settings are easy to use. This was pretty crucial to me because I use them near a window so I end up adjusting my brightness every day.

Cons: Price. I think the exact same screen can be had cheaper in a monitor that doesn't have the full height, swivel, pivot, and tilt.
Power cord is a little short.

4 out of 5 eggsbright, nice image

Pros: I would give this 5 stars but for the annoying Splendid "feature" and the awkward menu system.

Image is very bright which is good for me because of the bright office environment I use it in, but I still needed to turn the brightness down. The stand is very sturdy.

Cons: The splendid feature and menu system are annoying, and there is no detailed manual to figure out the features that are greyed out, only a quick start guide. Normally the menu is self explanatory but this one is strange.

I calibrate my monitors with an x-rite monitor calibration sensor and use the rgb controls. If you use the splendid feature it locks out manual controls until you go to the System Setup menu and select All Reset, then you can manually set the rgb. None of this is documented in the Quick Start Guide.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this monitor without the splendid feature but this model has the height adjustable stand.

3 out of 5 eggs3 out of 4 isn't bad

Pros: Good price, great for an office setting.

Cons: 1 out of the four had a huge line going vertically across the screen and we didn't even have it for 2 weeks! Good thing I'm going to RMA it.

Other Thoughts: You get what you paid for. Usually ASUS is a good brand, but not this time around. I hope the other three don't share a similar fate.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Beautiful. Lovely colors, nice brightness settings -- swivel is delightful. I have never been happier with a monitor.

Cons: The speakers are pretty tinny, but what did you really expect?

Other Thoughts: I realize this is out of stock and all, but I just love this monitor so much. I can't help myself.

5 out of 5 eggsEyefinity 3 in Portrait

Pros: Backlight is very bright. First LED monitor and loving it. Vivid colors. Fast refresh rate. Wide range of motion.

Cons: Speakers are weak (almost no bass) but I did not expect much. The speakers are placed on top of the monitor which is a bit weird. The viewing angle horizontally when in portrait mode is strange, screen gets dark at about 40 degrees. This does not seem to be the same in landscape mode. Lack of HDMI.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to go along with my new Sapphire HD6850 and they are beautiful. The bezels are a bit large, but I expected this. One stuck pixel out of 3 screens, can't complain about that. Caution: I have some screen tearing on my HD6850 because of using 2 DVI ports and one Displayport -> DVI adapter. Not a problem with the monitors, but it is quite annoying.

1 out of 5 eggsDVI port broken in less than 2 months

Pros: -Good picture quality

Cons: -no HDMI
-oversaturated colors
-DVI port broken in less than 2 months
-Horrible ASUS service in my country

Other Thoughts: I bought my unit from a local dealer and in less than 2 months, the DVI port broke. I tried my cable with another computer and it works. I connected another monitor using DVI to my system and it also worked so I'm sure that the DVI port of the monitor is the problem since the VGA port still works.

I brought the monitor to an ASUS service center and when they tested the DVI port, it worked fine. They asked me what my graphics card is and when I told them that I'm using an HD 6970, they told me that it is too powerful for the monitor. They told me something about the monitor having less than the necessary number of pins for my graphics card, etc. The thing is, it worked before so it would be stupid to think that compatibility is the problem but they still won't fix my monitor. I'm currently using a VGA adapter temporarily and I'm getting really fuzzy display output.
