5 out of 5 eggsNiiiiceeeeeeeee

Pros: Its beautiful to look at. When im browsing Facebook with lighting fast speed my old monitor would fail under the stress of my Facebook posts. Now I can click all those game invites without any screen tearing. I also drink lots of mountain dew with this monitor because it enhances the experience. No for real tho, this is probably the best monitor for the price. A year ago I paid 300ish for it. But it has been totally worth it. No dead pixes, no nothing. I have ONLY bought asus monitors and I have yet to be disappointed. I am not a hardcore gamer or anything but I play TONS of SKYRIM and this monitor makes the landscape and water and everything look beautiful.

Cons: Its not drool proof.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor. The best in its price range.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat...At first

Pros: Sharp image, bright, excellent contrast

Cons: None...for nearly a year, then the contrast started to fade. Over the past couple of weeks, the contrast has gotten pretty bad. It's now like looking through a fog

Other Thoughts: If the contrast haden't failed, I'd consider 5 eggs. The 4 was because of weak audio, and I really didn't find that objectional after a few weeks.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor black quality, very pixelated.

Pros: It is aesthetically pleasing.

Cons: The stand sits a little short, the screen is matte finish, the black quality is AWFUL. the colors are faded beyond correction. if you're using this monitor do write word docs, then this is for you. this is not a monitor for the visually and graphically concerned. Do not buy this for gaming.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

This monitor was designed in mind for everyday internet browsing users. Although this particular monitor does have a great 1ms response time to help eliminate ghosting, the main features of this monitor is its elegant modern design. If you were looking for more of a gaming monitor, I would suggest one of our monitors from our VG series. I would also suggest updating your graphics card drivers to the latest firmware. That may help with the color hue issues you are experiencing. If you have any other inquires about your ASUS LCD, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150259700.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

Best regards,
Jolene

5 out of 5 eggsLots of "Real Estate"

Pros: It's a LOT of desktop if you utilize two of these in parallel to each other (obviously), but in all honesty you won't be disappointed. These things look great, and the clarity is spot on. I've got both of mine running at 2560x1440 which is a bit large, meaning everything is small, but the amount of desktop space utilized by programmes that are open is also very small depending if you have them full screen or not.

Cons: None really...

Other Thoughts: If I were to add one thing, maybe they could have sized the side panels down a bit to not have a gap between the two monitors, but most would be satisfied with just the one monitor, but those who like to have all that "real estate" you may want to consider if having your mouse jump about an inch or so to the other screen would bother you - I can deal with it but it'd be nice to have a thinner boarder.

5 out of 5 eggsWobble???? What wobble?

Pros: Just received and installed on Christmas Eve..... wow, quick shipment Newegg. Sharp, clean picture. Have not gamed with it yet but will for sure tonight. I dont get the comments about a wobbling stand. It mounts rigid and of coarse if you try to use this monitor as a board to fling spitballs, you could make it wobble. It is just fine.. (I suggest folks stop getting cheap desk from IKEA)

Cons: A bit difficult to set up. It is defaulted to vga connection out of the box. This monitor will ONLY look for that connection and if it is not present, you can not get to the menu to change the connection type to HDMI. Lucky for me, I had an adaptor laying around to hook it up to the vga. I then changed the connection type in the menu and voom... worked great. If you are running AMD catalyst control center, you will need to adjust the settings in the display set up. If you don't you will see a screen that is not completely utilized. (Scaling options- Digital Flat Panel)

Other Thoughts: So far . work great..... I will follow up if I notice any performance problems. HEY ASUS.... I love your products but....... Include a HDMI to vga connector OR address this weird layout of menu buttons.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for the money

Pros: Good value - at the time picked up for close to $200 after incentives and rebate
I really like the overall image quality after a little messing with the factory default settings.

Cons: The display adjustment buttons are a little weird. The volume/brightness buttons have shared functionality with the sound/brightness increase. It takes some getting used to to navigate properly.
One of the pixels on the monitor is stuck blue. This isn't a huge deal for me personally. It's almost impossible to notice in the corner unless your right on top of the screen looking at a light colored background, nevertheless it's cost them an egg.

Other Thoughts: Good bargain gaming monitor.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Awesome quality for the price.

Cons: First unit arrived DOA.
Second unit worked perfectly, but died in less than 2 years...

Other Thoughts: Disappointed, because I usually swear by ASUS products. I've had other non-ASUS screens last me 4-5 years without issues.

Doubt I'll re-order an ASUS monitor again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Icetre,

I am sorry to see that your ASUS monitor has died out after only 2 years of use. If you purchased the LCD brand new, you should still be under the three year manufactures warranty. If you would like me to further look into your warranty, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with your display's serial number. Please be sure to also put case number N141182064 in the subject line of your email as well.

We are very happy to hear that you are a fan of our products. And we thank you for you being a loyal ASUS customer.

Best regards,
Jolene

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: It is everything that it is advertised as. Everything works as stated by ASUS. I love the monitor. Its not expensive but I believe is above expectations for the price I paid. Use it for gaming and does a fantastic job.

Cons: Takes a little time to get it set to what an individual wants but when set up works very good. I spent maybe a week getting it the way I wanted it, but that was also for gaming.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this monitor to my closest friends. Not really any cons.
