Great quality.. while they last

Pros: - Crisp image
- Bright
- Great for movies or gaming

Cons: - A little difficult to get cables plugged in
- DisplayPorts only lasted 4 years

Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these monitors and have been very happy with them until now. I purchased them new 4 years ago and within the past couple months 2 of them have stopped receiving signal on DisplayPort. I swapped cables, swapped ports on the graphics card, and swapped monitors around until I narrowed down the issue to the monitors' DisplayPort. This is particularly frustrating since the warranty only lasts 3 years and these monitors are an expensive purchase. There is an expectation for them to last longer. I just checked about repairs and they quoted me $270 each. With all the planned obsolescence practices being exposed these days, it certainly makes you wonder.

Displays are nicce

Pros: - Really nice color and brightness
- Good size

Cons: - Hard to plug the connections in the back.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of the monitors for use. When I received them, one of the displays has a noticeable area of one or more dead pixels. Really disappointed about it, as I thought it would be less common these days. I've now had the monitors for many months now and the same monitor with the dead pixel(s) display port no longer works. Switch from display port to HDMI. Really frustrating.

I would've given these monitors a higher rating, if it were not for the pixel issue and now the Display Port failing (I tried using the same cable and input on the graphics card as the second monitor that works and vice versa and is definitely a problem with the monitor). Luckily, out of the two, the second doesn't have any problems of which I am aware.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for taking your time in writing this review, we value your feedback. It is unfortunate that your monitor is suffering from dead pixels, and your display port is no longer working. For more information, regarding our Zero Bright Dot policy, please visit: https://www.asus.com/us/support/article/696/. ​ It looks like you have tried another display port cable to no avail. Please try power cycling your monitor. Let me know if this helps.

Wow. Just wow.

Pros: Excellent colors, resolution to size ratio is perfect for my use (casual gaming and workstation). Owned for almost 4 years, still going strong.

Cons: The way the "sleep" function on this works can be frustrating if trying to troubleshoot, as it turns off whenever you lose signal. Small, isolated issue.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again, especially since the price has dropped significantly since I bought it. Good recommendation to anyone looking for a good balance between resolution and image size. Admittedly, I'm no monitor guru, so this is coming from a person who uses the monitor practically, not an industry expert.

Absolutely amazing!

Pros: The size and image quality is absolutely astounding. This thing looks great, totally worth the couple of extra buck I decided to spend. The speakers aren't to darn bad either.

Cons: I don't like how much I love this thing, it's borderline disgusting.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor, everyone should own one. Beautiful.

Quality Control seems to be poor

Pros: Price/Performance
IPS
Can pivot
A lot of ports

Cons: Quality Control

Other Thoughts: We bought a total of 4 of those. 2 of them work great and the 2 others not really. We have one with a hair in it and the other one with a dead pixel. Since we need more than 3 dead pixel we cant rma it and I am not sure about the other one with the hair in it. If you want to buy one of this, maybe a refurb one will have a better quality control

Great picture quality bad QUALITY CONTROL

Pros: The display picture quality is amazing, everything is smooth and crisp.
No backlight bleed.

Cons: Terrible bezel on monitor, the edges of the screen are popping out from the actual panel itself. When looking down onto the monitor you can see the gaps on it. And even the lightest taps to the edges of the screen will wobble the panel itself. Also, height adjustment came kinda messed up but barely noticable. Poor quality in general frames in general.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend you weight your time spent for a decently acceptable version of this monitor. The quality control on this is very poor, own a couple of these monitors and having to replace a few before getting decent ones.
