5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Monitor

Pros: I've had this monitor for a number of months now and find it to be perfect. It's picture is great. I play games and watch movies on it no problem.

I recommend this monitor to anyone who wants a high quality monitor at a decent price.

Cons: I had some issues with iTunes movies at first, but that was resolved once iTunes fixed some connection issues with DRM content.

3 out of 5 eggsHideous Colors

Pros: -144hz works just as it should
-Lightboost works (if you know how to enable it)
-Cant argue with the cost
-Great stand (90degree rotatable)
-Amazing response time

Cons: -The ugliest colors on a monitor I have ever seen

Other Thoughts: You may be thinking, "how can one con take two eggs away from a review?" Well, when talking about a monitor, colors matter. My old monitor was the 8 Year Old Asus MK241 and it absolutely stomps this new monitor colorwise.

Honestly, I have tried all the presets suggested by monitor review but I have come to conclusion that no the closest I can get is still not good enough. I think this may be related to the fact that is a 3D ready monitor.

Either way, If you buy this for 144hz, you're making a good choice. If you want your reds to look red and your blues to look look... look for a different monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsThere is a reason this monitor is a best seller

Pros: What a beautiful display! This monitor has no dead or stuck pixles. 144Hz is amazing for any game espically FPS games, it gives super smooth motion. For people who say the human eye cant tell the difference between 60Hz and 144Hz, you definately can tell the difference.

On a side note, I ordered this on a Friday and recieved it the following Monday. Used Eggsaver shipping method. Thanks Newegg!!

Cons: Wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: As others have said, this monitor comes from the factory with the brightness set to 90 which is way too high. For people who complain about the colors; any monitor anybody buys needs to be properly calibrated. With out proper calibration no monitor looks good. I have yet to buy a monitor that comes straight out of the box calibrated. If you are looking for a monitor to professionally edit photographs, this is not the monitor for you. If you are a true gamer and want the advantage in game, buy this monitor you won't regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Regrets

Pros: Let me start by saying I love this monitor!

-Excellent brightness.
-Incredibly fluid motion on 144hz.
-24" seems to be the perfect size for gaming (for me).
-Headphone pass-through.
-Adjustable stand.
-Portrait mode (this is also handy for connecting audio/video cables).
-The colors on mine looked good when I first hooked it up. I think ASUS may be calibrating these better from the factory now. Or I could just be colorblind. I suppose I could say the colors looked a tad washed out on the default settings, but I think that was probably more a result of how bright the screen is. In any case, I don't think they look nearly as bad as other reviews state (at least mine didn't).
-Matte finish on panel makes reflection and glare a non-issue.
-No bleeding or bright spots; brightness and colors look uniform across the panel.
-Comes with DVI cable.

You will be amazed at the beauty of this monitor.

Cons: -Integral Speakers are abysmal. My eMachines monitor had better speakers, but I shouldn't be using integral speakers anyway.
-No lock on adjustable stand. This can cause the panel to slide around a lot when transporting.
-When switching to portrait mode, it's possible to scratch/scuff the stand base if the panel isn't fully raised.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, 144Hz didn't blow me away when I first got this monitor hooked up. But it has made me considerably better at Battlefield 4. I'm now consistently going positive. I even did better when playing Halo 4 when I hooked up my Xbox 360 to it; even though the frame rate is not even close to 144 fps, I believe the 1ms response time still helps on consoles. There's noticeable input lag when I play on my TV from 2008.

I would compare 144hz to using a mechanical keyboard: you don't really notice how much better it is until you try to go without it.

One thing to consider is that you will have a constant dilemma of turning your graphics settings down to get 120+ fps (unless you have an awesome graphics card).

Also remember that only DVI and DisplayPort can run this monitor at 144Hz. So HDMI is really only useful for consoles and DVD/bluray players.

I tried the lightboost hack, and I really couldn't tell much of a difference even at 144fps. It is neat that ASUS officially supports this lightboost hack on the new 27" version of this monitor (ULMB is what they call it).

One feature I didn't know I'd like is the pass through for headphones. When I plug my headphones directly into my PC, there is sometimes a humming, buzzing, or hissing sound. This also is present if I use the SPDIF cable to connect to the monitor audio. However, if I use the audio through displayport and then plug my headphones into the monitor, there is no buzzing. The trade-off is that the audio sounds a bit muddier.

I upgraded from a 20" 1600x900 60Hz E202H eMachines monitor that I've had for 5 years. There's no comparison. The extra size, brightness, resolution, and refresh rate make all the difference.

In short, this monitor isn't technically perfect, but it's very close, especially for the price. This is the best $250 I've spent in a long time.

3 out of 5 eggsReally nice monitor, but...

Pros: This monitor is great. Has no cons, i really enjoy it but there is one problem, a tiny bug somehow got behind the LCD screen and died and now i have a 1mm sized black dot on my screen.

Cons: Like i said. I was fortunate enough to have an insect crawl under the LCD screen and die. It is impossible to remove without me breaking the whole monitor. I don't know if i am eligible for RMA because of this incident. I love this monitor, i really do but how unlucky can you be to have a bug get inside of your screen and die right near the center...

Other Thoughts: Bugs aside. this monitor was fantastic, now its just giving me anxiety because i know i cant afford another one and that dead bug is driving me insane. I cant stop noticing it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jordan,

I am so happy to see that you are overall happy with your purchase of this ASUS LCD monitor. I do apologize for the unfortunate cause of events. If you would like to set up a RMA with your manufactures RMA, feel free to email me at Please include this reference case number N141046269, in the subject line of your email as well. Thank you again for being a loyal ASUS customer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Read a lot of reviews before purchasing. There were a lot of people complaining about the poor color quality. Frankly, I don't know what they're talking about. The picture looks greats to me. I am no expert at identifying small details/deficiencies for monitors though. I must say I am completely happy with my purchase. All of my games look phenomenal.

Cons: Should have bought another one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: I have experienced a great refresh rate. The colors are realistic. It rotates, in case I want to see the screen in portrait mode.

Cons: I personally don't like that the buttons are on the bottom edge of the monitor. I would prefer them to be up front.

Other Thoughts: The other monitor for my consideration was one from the company that many consider the best LCD manufacturer. This Asus has more features than anything from that company. I don't regret choosing this model.

5 out of 5 eggsRequires calibration, but looks great.

Pros: No dead pixels and looks good after proper calibration. The stand allows you to rotate the monitor easily 90 degrees clockwise into portrait. Also sits on a nice lazy susan to turn left and right. Viewing angles are decent, looking it from below looks bad but is still easy to discern what is on screen.

The menu buttons feel decent and in general feels like a very solid products.

Cons: Required large calibration and using a windows calibration setting I found from other reviews. Im not sure if you could calibrate it correctly for anything not connected to a PC. After all the settings though it looks great, yellow might be a little off but I use f.lux which make everything orange anyways which might be throwing me off on what is actually normal.

The monitor is BRIGHT! It came factory at 90 brightness and I immediately turned it down to 35. It is still very bright at night at that setting so I have turned f.lux up like mad to try and save my eyes at night in a dark room.

Other Thoughts: Normally I wouldn't be happy about the blue lit power button but from normal viewing height you can't see it, and if the monitor is on, it way outshines the blue light because it is a crazy bright monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsLight bleed spots

Pros: It arrived?

Cons: Day one there's a nasty back bleed splotch. Normally backbleed occurs around the corners of the monitor, but sadly, this was a blotch right in the left side of my monitor. Very visible. Very dissapointing.

Other Thoughts: Very washed out when I received it. I guess with some calibration it could be good. But sadly, the defect is too noticeable.

Here's to hoping the turn around for RMA is acceptable.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your purchase of an ASUS LCD display monitor. I am sorry to see that your LCD was received with a back bleed, along with washed out colors. Feel free to email me at with this special case reference number N141022759. If you could also include a copy of your invoice and the LCD's serial number I would be more than happy to make this RMA process a fast and efficient process.

Best regards,
