4 out of 5 eggsGreat Moniter

Pros: Large screen, can be set very bright, or fairly dim for your lighting needs, has several modes to choose from based on what you want to do at the press of a button, very fast.

Cons: The only con about the product line I can find, is that the Picture in Picture (PIP) mode will only allow you to have either DVI or HDMI paired with either VGA or Display port. You cannot have a DVI and HDMI PIP displayed.

Other Thoughts: With my particular unit, I managed to get a dead pixel exactly 1 week after purchase. After finally getting to chat with an Asus tech (I had troubles navigating the site) he informed me Asus won't do anything until I have 5 or more.

This is a shame. I can understand Asus's stand on something like that, especially since it's a refurb unit, but I wanted to use this display for years to come. Now it seems I'll have to find money to replace it unless I can get more dead pixels, or worse.

I suppose next time I'll spare the extra for a new unit.

2 out of 5 eggsAre you feeling lucky?

Pros: Nice display, great GTG speed. Vibrant color adjustments available, contrast/brightness is good too.

Cons: My refurb model had backlight flickering trouble from initial purchase. Issue has increased in frequency, causing me to call for RMA. Having issues getting RMA because neither the manufacturer nor the responsible party for these first 90-days are taking responsibility. (AKA, I'm getting the run-around). Hopefully the 1-year extended warranty purchase vendor will provide solid support.

Other Thoughts: Buy the extended warranty! Whomever is certifying the refurb status of this model needs more quality control. You will want that extended warranty period to ensure the "refurb" status is a solid one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

If you purchased a refurbished ASUS monitor, the monitor has 90 days of warranty from the date of purchase. Simply provide us your copy of vendor’s invoice or some sort of proof of ownership. Should you require further assistance, please contact me at cl-celeste@asus.com and include ref#1072-7110 in the subject line.

Sincerely,
Celeste

1 out of 5 eggsGood Product, Bad Circumstance

Pros: Great display in genereal. I have owned a similar display, the same monitor with a built in webcam for nearly a year with no issues. Looks great with games and movies.

Cons: None about the product in general, but this specific display I received has issues. Almost 1 month after receiving (but more than 30 days after placing the order; how newegg times their RMAs) the 'refurbished' display began to have problems. The picture flickers out and turns into different colors with vertical lines all over the screen that can only be fixed by unplugging the display and plugging it back in. I am now stuck trying to deal with ASUS warranties and customer service to fix a $300 product that was less than perfect when NewEgg sent to me.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I’m so sorry to hear your situation. If you recently bought an ASUS refurbished monitor, it is usually backed by 90 day warranty. If you would like to discuss this issue with me further, please contact me at cl-celeste@asus.com and include ref#1072-6780 in the subject line.

Sincerely,
Celeste

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic monitor

Pros: I was in the market for a 27" monitor to act as my new primary monitor, retiring my 23" Dell LED Slim that I got a few months back to the secondary monitor. I wanted to stay on a budget of about $250. Initially, I ran across this model at full price, but then I checked for the refurb deal and I'm glad I did. The monitor came boxed and packaged well. It looks and seems like a brand new monitor. No issues at all with it. No dead pixels, no scratches, no blemishes. RIPPIN' deal on the egg!

Cons: The only (small) gripe I have is that the pixel density is not as high as I would have hoped. I came from a 23" monitor with the same resolution as this and the density really does make a difference, however, I knew that was the tradeoff going in and can't take an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: If you are in the market for a 27" behemoth of a monitor, look no further. Plays games well to boot (no ghosting that I can decypher, I play BF3 at max settings)

1 out of 5 eggsA lemon

Pros: Large

Cons: Flickers back and fourth from black screen to normal.

Other Thoughts: I know I ordered a recertified unit, but whoever rectified it should be fired! Sent it back and hope the next one is actually "recertified".
