Very Good Monitor. Plenty bright and plenty of options

Pros: 4k, built in gaming options, like the cross-hair, for example. Blue light reduction options for low light use.
Controls are easy to use.

Cons: Only does 60 htz. It's not a high refresh monitor

Overall Review: I bought a refurbished one to save some money. Minus 1 egg because the snap in cable cover on the factory stand was broken.
Luckily I wasn't using the factory stand, and, even if I was, that's not a needed part.
4 inputs.
1 Display Port and 1 HDMI does 4k @ 60 htz.
the other 2 HDMI ports only do 4K @ 30 htz.
Monitor also has USB A & B hookups, but I never tested them.

Minor grievances, good monitor

Pros: - Default brightness is blinding, 70% is more than enough for me in a well lit room, and dims in reasonable increments that will allow for any preference
- Monitor firmware GUI is quite functional, and has the neat feature of being able to turn off the power indicator light
- Bluelight filter is weird, but I have it on good authority it makes nighttime/low light viewing much more comfortable for extended periods
- Windows 10 default magnification (150%) makes everything silky textured, but still legible and functional, 100% is unreadably tiny, but sharp
- Integrated, powered USB3 hub is nice, USB-B plug is block shape instead of wafer shape, which is nicer
- My 3D MMO of choice has less video lag and looks better at 4k on this monitor than it did on my old monitor at 1920x1080. Movement is much smoother, almost no hitch in camera rotation in the middle of traditionally laggy areas

Cons: - Cable management is... weird. The coverplate looks enough like a handle that they labeled the box in five places not to use it as such
- Monitor buttons feel fragile. Won't be fiddling with them much
- Haven't (and won't) test the built in speakers. The fact that they're even included is actually irksome. At least I didn't have to re-train Windows to not use them this time
- Mouse is choppy as hell over HDMI (2.0 port, with supplied cable), but ice smooth over DisplayPort. Pretty obvious which I'll be using going forward
- There is a GUI/firmware feature to allow the USB hub to remain active once the display goes to sleep or is turned off, but this doesn't appear to actually have any effect
- Minor scuff on monitor stand base, no big

Overall Review: - Physically imposing. Only slightly larger than my old display, but *feels* much bigger (replaces ASUS VE278Q Black: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236103)
- "Gamer" features of the GUI include painting crosshairs in one of two colors and styles, a countdown timer, and an FPS counter, none of which I'm likely to ever use
- Came with display drivers on disk (!), always leery of AMD and NVIDIA's bloated installers, but I'm installing the display driver anyway
- Owned and operated for about a week at the time of this review

Your mileage may vary. My system:

MSI X370 GAMING PLUS AM4: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813144030

Great Product, DO NOT buy a refurbished one!

Pros: ~ Build quality is eggcellent. The monitor as well as the stand feel very sturdy and hefty.
~ Refresh rate for a 4k monitor at this price range is pretty solid deal.
~ Pixel Density makes everything look sharper than my previous monitor.
~ Sleek controls and build overall.

Cons: ~ Minor backlight bleeding

Overall Review: Would not recommend buying refurbished product from ASUS. I had an issue with the power button 70ish days into purchase, although it was covered by warranty, it does not cover shipping. I packed it up and brought it to my post office which estimates the cost of $68 to ship. At that price, I wished I have purchased a new one with proper service.

I decided to just eat the lemon and learn from my mistake. ASUS refurbs are a no-no. Don't get me wrong, this is the 4th ASUS monitor in my household, just wouldn't recommend their refurbs after my experience. In the meantime, I have to unplug the monitor whenever I want to power it off, as this is not an issue worth 68 bucks.
