This review is from: Coboc 10 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: -Low price
Cons: -Cord is a bit stiff (keeping in mind I've only used it for less than a day).
Other Thoughts: It's an inexpensive digital cable which seems to work. Not sure what else there is to say.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Fast response time (no noticable lag when playing first person shooter games)
-Great customer service (Asus, that is)
-No dead pixels
-No light bleeding at the screen edges
Cons: -Power cord seems a bit shorter than usual normal
-Rebate needed to be sent in
-Hard/impossible to find posted recommended calibration settings for this monitor online
Other Thoughts: -Perpendicular inputs are questionable. (Could be good or could be bad)
-Rather screen bright (but can be turned down in settings)
-Screen seems more blue-ish than I'm used to. Not sure if it is because this monitor is more blue than "true", or if my old one was more yellow, or both.
This was actually my second monitor from them (a replacement). The first one I ordered had a dead pixel in the top, and a clump of dead pixels near the center. However, both Asus and Newegg offered to replace the monitor at no cost, so I don't hold it against them, and if anything give them more credit for it (hence the 5-egg review).
Pros: -Matte screen
-Stand has a nice look and feel to it
-It came broken, but both Asus and Newegg are willing to make it right.
-Easy, "tool-less" assembly (I think all monitors are like that, though).
Cons: -It came with 3-4 dead pixels. One in the top-center, and 2-3 more in the center right. Not the biggest deal except the 2-3 were directly adjacent to each other (looking like a piece of dirt inside the monitor), which made it *very* visible in the center of the screen.
-Lots of strange, advertising-style stickers on the monitor. They can be taken off.
Other Thoughts: The screen was less-than-ideal, with the dead pixels. However, when I called Asus tech support (a hard number to find, by the way), they were more than happy to send out a replacement. Likewise Newegg was willing to send it for replacement as well. Seeing how I'm not in an exceptional hurry, I'm willing to call that a good outcome.
We'll see if I get luckier on the LCD lottery next round. In the mean time, I'll more than willing to give credit for good customer service (both Asus and Newegg).
