4 out of 5 eggsVery solid general-use monitor

Pros: Packaging was solid. Arrived undamaged and 2 days after ordering despite the standard 4-7 day shipping, as expected from Newegg.

No dead pixels or other defects.

I use this monitor for a 1st-gen MacPro and two Win7 laptops, with the included DVI-HDMI cable connected to the MacPro, and each laptop connected to the other HDMI and VGA inputs separately. As each computer turns on or comes out of sleep/lock mode, the monitor switches to the new input.

Overall picture is very good, and the monitor provides a significant increase in screen real-estate from my old 17" 4:3 VGA monitor.

Speaker quality on par with cheapish laptops, but not better than a cheap 2.1 speaker setup.

Cons: Had to turn down the brightness and contrast, it hurt my eyes at first, but I'm old, so there's that.

Casing finish is glossy, my computer desk faces the middle of the room so I see the back often. Obviously this is not a big deal, I just wish the monitor would "blend in" more to the dark wood in my desk area.

Included DVI-HDMI cable seems to be missing some pins compared to the other DVI-D cables I've used (such as the one with my original Apple display, indicating that it may not be a real DVI-D cable), so I will be replacing it when I can find a better option.

Included power cable is kind of short, I'm using the one from my old monitor as a result.

Picture from the MacPro is not as good as I expected, but is still much better than my old monitor, and better than plugging directly into an HDTV of equivalent size.

Other Thoughts: I did not use the included stand at all, I mounted it directly to the VESA mount that I had already.

None of the computers I have access to can really "game", so I have not been able to test it in that regard.

5 out of 5 eggsYou have to be impressed. I was

Pros: The auto adjust of the monitor was fast, and set up the monitor very well. The colors are great, and were not washed out. Blacks were black. No dead pixels. Fantastic monitor. This is an amazing value for the dollar.

Cons: Have not found any, yet. And, I am looking.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a LG 24" monitor that I loved. So, I was a little leery if this one could be as good as the LG. So far, I could not be happier. This is one FANTASTIC monitor. Like I said, I am trying to find something I don't like, and have not found anything so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good for the price

Pros: good contrast, easy setup, plenty of ports, inexpensive

Cons: picture is slightly stretched due to being 1920x1080 on a screen larger than ~25", though this is only noticeable if you look closely

Other Thoughts: I've had an ASUS VE258Q for a few years now, and got this as a second monitor because I was so pleased with the first one. I've had zero issues with them and would recommend them to anyone needing a good monitor for a low price.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: This thing looks amazing! They packaged it extremely well, simple assembly of the base, it's everything I needed in a monitor!

Cons: The speakers do sound a little bit hollow and tinny, but if you're getting a monitor like this you're likely using some real speakers anyways. The built in headphone/mic ports in the monitor pretty much negate this completely, but if you're looking for high quality audio from your monitor, this isn't it.

Other Thoughts: The audio quality was such a non-issue for me, and in my opinion most people, so I couldn't take an egg off for it. Other than that I highly recommend this monitor!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Screen for a Good Price

Pros: clear

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a good monitor that has included speakers. Those are helpful when you want to show someone a video and not have them wear your headphones. I don't use the speakers for anything else since I mainly game.
Lots of constant usage and this unit has remained reliable.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Got it on Sale.
Plenty of desktop real estate with a great picture.
2X HDMI and 1x VGA give plenty of connection options.

Cons: Wish it were a bit cheaper so I can buy a second one!
Built in speakers sound just as tinny as you'd expect from monitor speakers

5 out of 5 eggsGood Specs BUT !!!!!!!!!

Pros: Has Very Good Spec's for the Price, I've been using mine for about 3 Months Off and On ( I have 3 Monitors ). I've probable used it equal to about 3 Full weeks, if it was the only Monitor I had.

Cons: The first time I turned it on there were about 6-9 Stuck Pixels, I just tapped on them with my fingernail and they became unstuck. That put me on Guard, but after about 3 weeks of use I haven't seen another Stuck or Dead Pixel..

Other Thoughts: After having a few Stuck pixels the first time I turned on the monitor, ever since than when I turn on the Monitor I look for bad Pixels, I would of sent it back after the first I turned it on and had a few stuck pixels. But It comes with a 3yr, Free Shipping Both ways, so I am keeping a Close Eye on the pixels and so far it was just that initial Startup that Showed the few stuck pixels. Otherwise it has a GOOD PICTURE and SOUND..

5 out of 5 eggsAsus 27" Monitor

Pros: I have had this monitor for about a year and have not been disappointed. I use this monitor as my primary computer display as well as my tv on the rare occasion I watch regular tv. I have an hdmi from my verizon TV box to this monitor and a DVI from my computer to this monitor, allowing for easy switching back and forth. The picture quality is amazing and the 2ms response time makes everything look incredible with no ghosting or blurred images or video. And so far I have not had an ounce of trouble with this monitor. I hope to be able to say that again in a few years. Thanks ASUS, I am very happy with all of your products. I am looking to buy a new laptop now and would really like to make it another ASUS because all the products seem to last.

Cons: The built in speakers are pretty awful, which I guess is to be expected. They are very small and very low power. But it is easy enough to plug in external speakers and away you go. I use them for watching TV once in a while and of course have separate speakers hooked up to my computer which is what I use this monitor for mostly. I can't think of any other cons.

Other Thoughts: Good value for the money and an amazing picture. If you want amazing sound though, you may be disappointed. Be prepared to use external speakers.
