3 out of 5 eggsGet exactly what you pay for.

Pros: Sleek design looks nice on my desk. Bright, vivid picture is easy on the eyes.

Cons: The OSD is truly a pain. The panel grid shows through the screen. Text is not quite as crisp as I hoped it would be.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I went with this size instead of any of the larger sizes. I'm in grad school and bought this for reading research articles and to type and create documents on. I wish the text were a little sharper. This monitor is not much better than my other 17" LCD monitor that is 8 years old (I paid about $100 for it at the time). This monitor is certainly brighter, but the colors are not significantly better and the text resolution is definitely not better.

Overall, I'm content with this monitor. The screen real estate is nice, but I really wish I could have spent even $50 more. I feel like I could have gotten a significant step up at that price level. At the same time, I feel like I could have spent $50 less and gotten about the same quality as this monitor, but I trust Asus and try to buy their products when I can.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Monitor

Pros: It's very aesthetically pleasing, brilliant color contrast, premium look, feel and build quality, very easy to setup, includes a DVI to HDMI cable, and of course ASUS branding. Absolutely fantastic monitor.

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggsGood monitor for non gamers

Pros: I purchased two of these monitors at the same time.

• The stand is sturdy and monitor is relatively slim
• Monitor is light enough to be easily moved around
• Color is quite nice offering a decent range of settings
• Anti glare layer works very well

Cons: • No VESA mount
• One of the two monitors has tearing when gaming or watching videos
• The bezel is larger than what is pictured

Other Thoughts: I paid $150 each and at that price it's a decent monitor. One of them has tearing which is frustrating. I bet there are better monitors out there with a smaller bezel for the price. I'll probably go with a different brand for my next monitor purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsJust for gaming

Pros: I think some of the pros of this monitor is that its very very light. Another is how it looks modern. Then the display looks amazing in BF4. it really takes advantage of the great resolution of this monitor

Cons: I do have one con, is that the power buttons and all of that stuff are touch sensitive. If there was a remote included this feature would be fine for me.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW! I love this monitor.

Pros: Brightness, colors, clarity, detail. This monitor is higher res than my old one and I am ready to throw my 2nd monitor away and get another one of these.

Cons: Doesn't have a height adjustment. I want the monitor to be more eye level. So I will have to buy some monitor stands.

Other Thoughts: This monitor blows away my 2nd monitor. I wish I had bought one of these sooner.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 months

Pros: It is a decent, small IPS 1080p monitor with a decent brightness and contrast.

Cons: Title says it all - it was a decent monitor, but the image started flickering after about 3 months of use.

Hasn't stopped flickering since - all it does is flicker the image.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't get this monitor again - haven't had great luck with many asus products.

5 out of 5 eggsJust wanted to correct myself

Pros: See other thoughts

Cons: Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Correct something in my previous review. The description does in fact say it comes with 2x HDMI cables, I was only looking at the product photo which clearly didn't show any, so there's that. Sorry to the guy I doubted, you were right, the description has an error, there aren't any HDMI cables included, only VGA and HDMI to DVI (as well as power and audio).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, but some color issues

Pros: Great viewing angles, very sleek, bezels aren't very large, came with all cables advertized (see other thoughts), 2 HDMI ports. It's an IPS display, colors looks great (if you mess with settings, see other thoughts). I DEFINITELY recommend this monitor, it looks good with some tweaks.

Cons: Lacks anything other than HDMI and VGA. I would have liked to see DVI or even Display Port, just for more options. The speakers are okay, maybe if you want to skype with someone they'll work fine, but they aren't amazing for games, music, or movies really. They are usable, just not amazing. Works for occasional YouTube vid, but just use headphones.

There IS an issue with colors, at least for me. They look really off, and the presets look bad, my fix that works for me is in other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: To the guy who is disappointed that it didn't come with two HDMI cables: read the description again, it doesn't. It comes with a VGA and an HDMI to DVI cable (which, if your using this for you computer, you should be able to use most likely).

ALSO, about the color problem. Asus has some presets in the monitors on-screen display, and none of them look good without a lot of tweaking. On some, the blacks aren't deep enough, in others contrast is too high etc, and you cant change any of these in the options on some presets.

I use this for games, and out of the box everything looked washed out on the "game" preset to me and other presets were equally funky. So if you want to know my settings, (requires Nvidia GPU) here they are:

REMEMBER THIS IS TO MY TASTES, FOR GAMING, but may work for you:

In the on-screen display menu:

-Standard mode (in "Splendid" tab, this is important)
-Brightness: 100
-Contrast: 80
-Saturation: 50 (unchangeable)
-Color temp: Normal
-Skin tone: Natural (unchangeable)
-Leave other unchangeable stuff
-Vivid pixel: 0 (annoying sharpening, some people like it)

Now in Nvidia control panel:
(under Display and then Adjust Desktop Color Settings)

-Tick "use Nvidia settings"
-Brightness: 55%
-Contrast: 60%
-Gamma: 0.90
-Digital Vibrance: 72% (because you can't adjust saturation in Standard mode on the monitor, which is washed out)
-Hue: 0 (don't mess with this)
-Digital color format: RGB (see below for more info, important!)
-Content type reported: Desktop program (I just leave it on this)

OK, so Nvidia cards have a problem with RGB, so you need to download a fix or it wont work right and blacks will look bad. Google "nvidia rgb fix" and it will be the first link, or go here to DL: http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?p=83
Use the tool, restart your PC, and it should have full range (0-255) RGB now.

These are the settings I use, and I like them for gaming. Colors look way better than before, especially in Skyrim. Fell free to tweak it to your liking of course, tastes are different, it's just I've found that to work best.

Thanks for reading, I hope I helped someone out.

3 out of 5 eggsPending

Pros: I'm not sure yet

Cons: I'm not sure yet

Other Thoughts: I can't seem to get the base attached, so I can't test the monitor yet. The screw does not seem to be up to the task on my unit. Any feedback on this?

3 out of 5 eggsShould've listened to the other guy

Pros: Lovely design, sleek and attractive. Good use of desk space and solid stand.

Cons: An earlier review said they got no cables for the video input. I got some, but not all of them that were stated on the products page, which, I needed and HDMI cable, and it says there are supposed to be two, but there's none in the box. Now I can't enjoy this monitor till I go out and get one. Huge, inconvenient hassle.

Manufacturer Response:
