Going on 10 years of heavy use

Pros: Keeps on keeping on - no dead pixels, pretty much looks like when I got it. Everything seems to work.

Cons: Keeps on keeping on for so long that I'm really dying to get a new monitor but this one just keeps working.

Other Thoughts: Why???

Great while it lasted

Pros: Worked great with nice color and clarity while it lasted

Cons: Never moved it around or touched it all that much but after ~6yrs it started displaying the on-screen menu. I would regularly have to hit the button on the bottom to turn it off. Then it would randomly power off and the power button failed to get it back up. I would have to push the power button multiple times before the screen would toggle back on. After much frustration, I ended up prying the power button out thinking I could perhaps see what the problem was with it.

No fix was possible and it went into the trash at the 7 yr mark. I guess not a bad run but I didn't expect it to fail like that.

Cons: Non that I can think of

Favorite monitor ever

Pros: I've used this monitor for a few years now with absolutely no problems. No dead pixels at all. Monitor still works as well as the day I bought it. I've never had one that I've like as much, so I'm dreading the day I have to buy a different one. I think I will stay with ASUS when the next is needed.

Cons: Wouldn't mind a HDMI input, since that is one of the things I'd like in my next and if it had that I'd use this one till it turned to dust.

Other Thoughts: Asus makes good stuff.

Long lasting, great monitor

Pros: I've owned this monitor since 2008 (now ending 2012) and it's held up with 0 dead pixels. It's just been a champion throughout the years.

Cons: The display sometimes refuses to come back on if I leave the computer on standby. Not really sure what's causing it, as I've replaced the internals of the computer since getting it. I think it's just age.

Other Thoughts: Best monitor I've ever owned.

Worked well, but cheap construction

Pros: Good picture, colors, resolution, and mine didn't have any dead pixels. 22 in. was huge for the price when I bought it 3 years ago.

Cons: The quality of the LCD screen is great, but the case construction is lousy. The micro-switch behind the power button ceased to work completely on me. Granted, it did last three years, but I rarely pushed that button and it really sucks to lose a perfectly good monitor because of one irreplaceable micro-switch. I even opened up the case to pull out the board, but good luck getting that switch off of there without melting it.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to try to figure out the pinout and maybe save this thing... All I need is a way to turn it on! If Asus tech support will work with me a little so I can jump start it once in a while I'll give this more eggs, but I'm so disappointed with the shoddy button construction that it gets 2 for now.

Shame it's deactivated

Pros: Purchased 8/5/2008...it's been up and running nearly 24x7 since 8/9/2008.

Still looks GREAT. No fade, no dead pixels. Even the stickers on it look mint condition ;-)

Cons: Heh, it would've been a steal @ $190.00

Other Thoughts: Progress...ASUS keeps churning out newer models (bigger sizes) for less $'s.

I jumped on another ASUS (23 incher) in the summer of 2009, and it too is working great.

This company knows how to make certain computer products. Monitors are one of those it excels with.
