Dead On Arrival

Pros: No pros, a non-functioning dead on arrival monitor.

Cons: Well, not much to say. Arrived with the classic messed up liney/glitchy screen, tested across multiple ports. Really sucks man, nothing like getting excited for your new monitor only to have to deal with disappointment and returns frustration. Sadly this has bumped ASUS down a notch on my previously impeccable record with them.

4K Gaming Brilliance!

Pros: I wanted a high-resolution monitor and boy, did I get it. It also doesn't hurt it has a 1 ms response time so no ghosting or tearing. I am still astounded they could pack in so many features in the monitor for such a low price.

I have a lowly Radeon RX480 8GB video card and I am still able to play Fallout 3 and Skyrim: Special Edition at 2K resolutions. I attribute this to adaptive-sync as the games are smooth as butter. I can't wait to get my Radeon RX Vega 64 for Christmas and try some true 4K gaming. I've read some reviews and it goes head to head with the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti for hundreds of dollars less.

Desktop wise the text is really small and I have to squint when I am blogging and reading blogs. I realize I could easily change this via the scaling, but I am stubborn and want the intended high-resolution.

Cons: I can't for the life of me to get the gameplus frame rate (FPS) counter to work so that is why I gave it four eggs. I've tried different display port cables and different sockets on my video card. I guess I will have to get Fraps.

Overall Review: Best money I've spent gaming wise this year!

Not sure yet as it came in with a Cracked screen...FedEx Im sure.

Pros: To be said once I see.

Cons: I had to pay shipping From Tennessee to City of Industry, Ca. MYSELF !!!!
Even if this Is fixed I shall never buy any Monitor From Newegg or Asus any longer since I have to pay (shipping) for their broken product. I Filed an RMA an hour after receiving Monitor. As soon as I plugged it in it showed the massive crack across the screen this is not something able to be seen when receiving from a FedEx truck.

Overall Review: Quality to be address at a later time but as for shipping I really feel our FedEx and Ups folks have become to Unionized to even care about the end customer.

Great monitor but not for gaming.

Pros: Awesome picture

Cons: I bought this mostly for gaming.This is not a gaming monitor like it says in the title.Only 60 hz refresh rate but I thought since it says its a gaming monitor that it would work.Lags playing BF1 and all of a sudden the game just closes.Im running a Ryzen 1600x and a GTX 1070 gaming x so I have the power to run it.Newegg tells me I have to pay $34.00 shipping fee and $48.00 restocking fee to return it.So now I'm stuck with it because I'm not paying them $82 .00 to return it when I was going to buy another monitor from them.What a rip off.I have ordered lots from Newegg and this is very disapointing and will probably be the last time time I order from them again

Overall Review: I gave it 3 stars because it is a awesome monitor IF your not using it for gaming.

Dear Valued Customer,

Hello, I would like to thank you for taking your time in writing this review. We certainly value your feedback. This monitor is definitely a gaming monitor. It has Adaptive Sync, 4k, and a 1 ms response time. It is unfortunate to hear that you were having issues playing your games. Keep in mind, you're not able to use the key adaptive sync, which is a key feature in this monitor since it requires an AMD card and that is one of the main components in making your games run really smooth. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is N1806143374

Great monitor for PC and XBOX ONE S

Pros: Works in 4K UHD with my XBOX ONE S with the HDMI 1 input, and is my PC Monitor on the Display Port at 3840X2160.

Cons: The Internal speakers have bad audio, but then, all monitors with speakers do, so anything the XBOX plays sounds lousy.
Would be nice if the monitor had an audio pass-through to connect external quality speakers.

Overall Review: XBOX ONE S Plays Blu Ray DVDs once the APP is installed, do not know if the upscaling is working or if it will play a BD UHD DVD as I don't have one yet.

Great deal

Pros: For the price, this monitor is amazing. I have only used it a few times, do I cannot testify to the longevity of the display. I was skeptical upon purchase due to some of the reviews, alas I fell into the roighly 88% of fully satisfied customers. I would highly recommend this monitor for specifically console gaming, as it displays 4k at only 60fps.

Cons: No real cons yet, other than it dropped 14 dollars between purchase and review.
Only mild complaint and more of a suggestion for Asus, in game plus make a red dot aim assist. I would actually use that, versus the giant crosshairs available.

DISMAL sound

Pros: Video

Cons: Two 2W speakers, meaning the monitor does come with sound!
The sound is dismally low even compared to any other (ASUS)
monitors with 2W speakers! I don't know what difference 3W
would make (as suggested by some reviewers) but you'd expect
this 28in. monitor to generate at least an identical
(if not proportional) intensity sound to a 25in. monitor!
It appears obvious that in rushing a video "4K UHD, 1ms"
product to market, the audio system was completely neglected.

Complaints

1. Why do you provide HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity
(as indeed you should at this day and age) if you seem to expect
the user to bypass the intrinsically perfect digital sound
for an amplified, "great" external solution?
Such a monitor must provide, as advertised, at least a decent,
normal quality of sound.

2. No sound settings, whether in software or manual.
I'm comparing this monitor to the one it is supposed to replace,
my ASUS VE258 (25in., SAME SIZE 2W speakers) on the same HDMI cable.
The VE258 creates a normal sound (if not even a little too loud
toward its Max range), subjectively, at least twice the level of
the new MG28U monitor; VE258 audio, clearly reasonable as expected.
What's even more important and telling, the VE258 does have a
manual adjustment (setting) of the sound level, on the OSD menu
(right now set at a confortable 90% !).

For the record: Widows 10, ASUS Strix Z270I motherboard.
Short of a favorable resolution, I expect to send back
the monitor to ASUS under optimal return conditions.

Dear Alex,

Thank you for taking your time in writing this review. We certainly value your feedback. It is unfortunate that you are not happy with your monitor's speakers compared to your previous speakers. There's a chance something is wrong with your speakers as the speakers on this unit is an upgrade compared to the VE258.. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at cl-justin@asus.com, or to speak to an ASUS live support agent 24/7 at http://bit.ly/AsusLiveChat.
