Pros: Purchased 3 of these for Eyefinity/triple monitor setup. Eyefinity because I like to play racing games and the triple setup for when I play WoW so I can have my jams going, watch Youtube raid vids and run my voip chat stuff during raids.
Two of the 3 came in Asus original packaging, the other was a generic box. All 3 were packaged very well. Came with dual link DVI cables, 3.5mm audio cables and power cords. Two had owners manuals and all 3 had drivers disk (pff, who needs those).
All 3 register 2560x1440 rez at 120hz on my R9-280 Xfx card through display port and DVI. Please note: the folks complaining that they can not get the 120hz refresh rate are more than likely using HDMI which will only register 60hz (there fault for not using the better DL/DVI cable that came with it). All 3 have zero dead pixels, no ghosting, no flicker. Awesome picture. I have no complaints so far. One of them still had all of the Asus plastic and adverts around the trim ring still. I will say that the audio out is a little heavy sounding but I don't use them. I hooked them all up just to test them. Everything functions on these monitors. I did expect at least one dead/stuck pixel but none at all. I also have my XBone and PS4 on them and they also look sweet. The Division especially and Destiny since updated grfx are flawless.
Newegg was awesome, Ordered them Thursday and got them the next day, didn't expect them till the following Tuesday since I picked 3-5 day shipping, I did pay the extra 3 bucks for rush processing but made for a fun project this weekend setting them up and playing with them.
Folks complaining about the trim scuffs and backs scuffed, get a clue please. These are refurbs. If you get one with a scratch on the screen then you can gripe but Newegg will make it right I promise. Been buying stuff from them for a long time and they have never let me down.
Cons: None what so ever!
Other Thoughts: These look awesome playing Dirt, Tomb Raider, WoW in Eyefinity mode. Really smooth game play. I would so recommend getting one of these. I did opt for the extended warranty just in case something went wrong.
The audio out is a little heavy sounding but I don't use it, just tried it to see how it would sound.
I retired (gave to the wife) an Acer B6 %^& 4k that was horrible. Had ghosting issues, washed out color, no audio outs and speakers that had the worst sound (flip phones have better audio). It was replaced by these three monitors. I should have spent the $500 on these instead of the Acer. Those of you who know monitors know which one I am talking about.
Pros: Beautiful picture, plenty of inputs, USB 3.0 also. PIP is neat. Free DP cable (lol). This monitor surprised me at how great the picture is @4k rez.
Cons: If you plan on using the internal speakers... BUY SOME!!!!
The speakers are horrible. Imagine taking a flip phone and dropping it in a tin can to listen to mp3's. That's the best I can describe the internal speakers of this monitor. I use a sound bar but I almost returned it because I thought they were broke. Then I read the actual review from cnet.com
Other Thoughts: Some of the reviews on Newegg are misleading because they do not know how to use the menus to make adjustment to the picture or their graphics cards do no support 4k rez. Please do not be afraid to purchase this monitor. I have a LG 32" ultra wide I also use but only does 2k rez. Acer has just as good of a pic but not as good sound wise. The other complaints I read are that Windows displays text really small and is useless unless your gaming.... folks need to learn to use Windows. These are very easy adjustments in Windows to change desktop icon, menu text and so forth for higher rez monitors, especially in Windows 10.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing IPS monitor for gaming with the 5ms response time. I have this set up with 2 1080p Insignia LCD TV's from Best Buy and I must say it is night and day. Web pages are amazingly clear and the color is amazing.
Cons: There is about a 3\8 space between the picture and the edge of the panel. This is very deceiving in the picture in the add. I was a very disappointed it is misrepresented by NewEgg and the reason for taking an egg off.
The only other complaint I have are the buttons being on the back of the monitor. But it does come with software to make adjustments on your desktop.
Other Thoughts: I knew this was not wall mountable but I engineered a mount with the black piece that it slips onto and two 3 inch "L" brackets. I do like the way it looks off the stand just sitting up on the desk. I will definitely be buying 2 more and retiring the other two Insignias.READ FULL REVIEW
