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 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,
ASUS Customer Loyalty

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat overall for the price

Pros: Great viewing size and easy install.
nice on-screen menu and options
very clear fonts and SUPER LOW ms lag for gaming its fantastic @ 1080

Cons: a bit of bleeding at standard brightness settings.
Black levels feel a bit washed-out, with standard gamma settings.
Weak display stand - monitor shakes as you type on the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I personally have the brightness turned extremely low due to washed out black levels. It feels like the backlighting of the display is a bit week, even with the high contrast. Don't put it in front of a window.

4 out of 5 eggsI am quite happy with this monitor!

Pros: A great monitor for everyday use and even for graphic & webdesign.

Great price.....the best I found around the time of purchase.

No dead pixels and pretty much plug and play.
I did not even have to adjust the monitor settings.

Cons: My only complaint is that Asus should have spent a few dollars more for a better base on this lovely Monitor.
The base really is not the quality it should be, therefore causing a serious wobbling issue on a computer desktop.

I believe the actual Monitor itself is just too heavy for the cheaper base Asus mounted it on.

If you decide to mount this monitor on a wall, then it deserves a 5-star rating.

I am currently using two box wedges on each end of this monitor so no wobbling. If one can live with that.....then no complaints I would say! Not an attractive site, but it works until I wallmount it.

I read so many reviews on this monitor while considering the purchase, and was warned about the wobbling issue, but I thought maybe it was not as bad as discussed in the reviews. So I did not go into the purchase non educated.

If you feel the wobbling base would bother you a lot, find an Asus Model that has a stronger base.

Other Thoughts: Newegg has not let me down so far!

I have made several purchases from them the last couple of years and I get what I expected, it arrives in a very timely fashion and in fine shape. I shop with them because of excellent online prices and fast delivery.

4 out of 5 eggsNice monitor

Pros: Wide screen, high resolution, high contrast, realistic colors, fast update.

Cons: Speakers are anemic, but /i purchased it for the display, not speakers, so it's close to a non issue.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had 2 more.

5 out of 5 eggsTwo is better than one

Pros: Just ordered my second monitor based on my experience with the first. Have owned the first for almost a year and a half.
Sitting next to my Samsung TV/Monitor there is no comparison. The Asus is superior in every way. Color, contrast, blacks, grays and clarity. No dead pixels along with flawless performance for the last sixteen months.
Quite truthfully I didn't expect to find NewEgg still selling this
model. With a significant price difference over the first makes this a super buy.
Only regret I could only buy one. If two is better than one, three has to be better.

Cons: None to speak of according to my experience.
