4 out of 5 eggsWider than expected

Pros: Solid clear monitor. Worked right out of box.

Cons: Since it is so wide, it does not seem as high as a usual monitor. Also, if using 2 monitors you are constantly resizing windows or losing the corners. Not a big deal, but can be annoying depending on what you are doing

Other Thoughts: No real complaints. I would however say that for an office setting, you probably want a slightly bigger one since given its width, height is a little squished up on side by side documents, with left over space on sides if you do edge to edge setting. Minor complaints. Overall, a great monitor, and if a little extra width is what you need, this is the monitor for you.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor

Pros: Great color, all around decent monitor, upgrade from my 17 inch laptop that died on me. I can't comment on the speakers, as I don't use them.

Cons: After a few weeks of use, two faint lines showed up on the right edge. The monitor didn't take any hits or anything, though I do have four cats, so who knows what happened while I was out at work or asleep. That's the only problem I have so far.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent

Pros: Looks nice. Great picture, colors, brightness and contrast. Many picture modes and customization options. Asus name and rapid replacement.

Cons: Wobbly stand. Starts to smell a bit like Styrofoam after a few hours of use. Maybe there's a piece of it from the packaging in there, not sure. Power plug fits loosely. Fairly minor complaints, nothing serious.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Monitor

Pros: Beautiful colors
Able to fine tune each preset
IPS with great angles
No pixel issues

Cons: Wobbly but still sturdy
Dead pixel warranty isn't the best

Other Thoughts: This monitor is awesome. It has beautiful colors that are crystal clear. The presets aren't the best and it'll take a bit of tweaking. I use three presets. One for normal computer operation, one for gaming and one for movies. This took about an hour of tweaking but it's worth it to get the monitor set up correctly to your environment.

It came out of the box without a single pixel issue which is nice. I don't like that you have to have at least 5 dead pixels to be able to replace it though.

This monitor also works great for gaming. I've played everything from Skyrim to Battlefield on it with no noticeable ghosting issues.

Finally, a lot of reviews have stated the stand is a bit wobbly. That's true. It will wobble a bit if the desk is bumped; however, it's not going to fall over. I've tested it a bit and it'll take a more significant force than bumping a desk to knock it over. In fact, it would probably take directly hitting the monitor itself to actually knock it over. So no worries.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor but...

Pros: Crisp & clear image with lots of settings
Low cost for IPS monitor
Decent response time

Cons: One star off due to the stand bracket being canted to one side. This was only noticeable after setting up the stand and realizing the monitor had a lean to one side. I had to disassemble the bracket and manually bend the mounting heads to a level position. QC issue for sure, but everything else is great

4 out of 5 eggsOverall a good monitor

Pros: IPS Panel. No light bleed (on my model), and no dead pixels. HDMI/VGA/DVI-D input. VESA mount.

Cons: Antiglare coating is horrible. Stand is wobbly.

Other Thoughts: This is a e-IPS panel. It may be 6 bit + AFRC. Still a very nice colorful monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Affordable Monitor

Pros: Pros- Affordable pricing, great viewing angle, multitude of input ports, lightweight, thin

Cons: Cons- Starting to think I should have bought two.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor and really affordable. I have not had a single problem with it. Great viewing angles and bright colors. I would recommend it to anyone who asks. I only wish that I would've bought two.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought 2 of these almost a year ago and have no issues with them. They have a very clean, sleek design to them and they are very easy to clean. I like that the controls for the menus are not touch like a good number of monitors are usually now. The displays are easily adjusted. I am planning on buying a third for my 3 screen set-up with these great monitors.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The border/bevel is a little think but that's not really a big deal to me, I can still game with no issues.
