3 out of 5 eggsBefore buying

Pros: This product is a very nice and so far reliable product even without current drivers.
I have always held Asus to be a very good choice for computer hardware.

Cons: There is only one problem I have with this product. This would be when I bought this product I was under the impression that I would have drivers for it via disk or an internet available source "without having to buy a program to do so", I was wrong... With several attempts with several sources, including Asus's home driver site, I can not seem to get current drivers and my OS, Win 7 pro, still wants to consider this product a generic device.

Other Thoughts: NO... I do not want to buy 3rd party software to keep a product I bought up to date, nor do I want to use pirated software drivers.
I still hold Asus at a very good choice for computer hardware.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought this monitor to replace my old 21.5" I had been using. This monitor is absolutely perfect! It was a little bright, but there are 6 preset settings that you can easily switch from, or you can fine tune it to what you like. The thing I like the most about it though is that it has a really solid base that helps cut down on shaking if you bump your desk or have a wheel attached to your desk. Very good buy!

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsMy first monitor for console gaming

Pros: I love this clarity, color, and response times of this monitor. I had no idea that a monitor would make this much difference on my conose gaming and graphics. I just never thought that a smaller screen would ever replace my 46 inch led sony bravia tv. I never understood why someone would place games on a desk on a small monitor when they could sit on the couch with a huge screen. Now I understand.

Cons: I found out this little secret so late in my gsming . I wish I knew how much better monitors were over tvs before I purchased my expensive sony bravia led TV.

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
sharp
fast

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
