Ahead of its time

Pros: Bought this monitor in 2009 as well, still use this baby to this day in 2017. Built in speakers and lots of features that were way ahead of its competition back in the late 2000s. I wanna thank ASUS for this product

Cons: None

8 year and still going

Pros: I bought this back in 2009 for a gaming monitor in Iraq. It also made it through Trashghanistan and it is still working like a charm to this day.

Cons: Feels a little cheap but that's about it.

Stood the test of time

Pros: Perfect performance for 5 years.

Cons: No longer available.

Other Thoughts: This review isn't going to be much help for this specific monitor as it's no longer available. I just wanted to come back to report that after 5 years of heavy use this is still my primary monitor and I've had zero issues. Not so much as a single dead pixel. Asus has earned a repeat customer.

Great Monitor

Pros: 1080p Widescreen Monitor with a 2ms response time.
Decently cheap.
OSD is pretty simple to use.
Special viewing modes make whatever your doing look amazing.

Cons: Not IPS

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these one for me and one for the wife, one of them was DOA but newegg fast and response RMA fixe that problem within a week. Power button is still rather wonky on one of them but cant complain.

To explain my CON, I use this primarily for gaming with both PC and consoles. For the most part it looks and acts amazing, but within the last few months I have noticed some Video lag in more fo the graphic intense games, and I fear even with 2ms response time TFT just cant keep up. Regardless this is an amazing monitor will shop ASUS again.

5 years strong!

Pros: Price
Size
Matte Screen
Color quality
3 inputs (VGA, DVI, HDMI)
input lag is super low
has speakers
headphone jack is useful

Cons: starting to feel small
speakers aren't the best around

Other Thoughts: I've had this monitor since 2010. I originally used this for my xbox 360, but since then I mainly use it for my computer. I also have used my ps4, ps3, and wii u on it. This was the perfect monitor to get at the time. The response time is probably the best part of the monitor. I don't think any competitive gaming scene that uses monitors would not allow this monitor, unless they need a bigger size. The image quality is also very good, especially if you prefer a matte screen.

Asus rocks

Pros: This is an excellent monitor, sized just right to fit my desk with amazing color. Asus really makes great products.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The monitor is now out of date, not a touch or 3D screen, but when I upgrade to a newer one I will buy Asus again and keep this older monitor as a third monitor.
