Summary: I also own one of the previous ML-series monitors from ASUS, with the original ring-stand design. This newer version is better in every way, other than the added weight of the stand.
Pros: This monitor violates a lot of the traditional design characteristics of LCD displays: ● TN-Panel; very low latency, much faster than IPS or PVA. Relatively good viewing angles, good color reproduction. ● Unique dual-mode stand: works with or without the lower ring. ● Stand is easily detached, ma...
Cons: ● No height adjustment (ring stand is simple, height isn't the point) ● No VESA mount (would eliminate the ring stand; not the point of this model) ● Only 2 inputs (DVI, D-sub/VGA); no DisplayPort. ● Capacitive buttons can be triggered unintentionally by metallic objects (mouse cable) ● Glossy-bl...
Summary: I just have some words i love this monitor ,came fast and a good delivered ,NICE SCREEN full 1080p HD,i love the touch bottons XD ,and i bought this for play games like the battlefield 3 ! AND the screen looks with very nice colors, the 2ms its very nice :D
Summary: The larger bar at the bottom didnt make much sense until i realized how thin the screen was. It is no thicker than a standard laptop screen. As a direct result the controls, power input etc, need somewhere to go. The bottom bar looks perfectly fine once you remove the sticker(s).
Pros: Zero Ghosting on BF3 (its all i play). I do play at max rez 1920x1080 (with GTX 590). Colors are very bright/crisp and true. Like the review below mentions, whites are white and blacks are..well.. a dark dark grey in gaming mode and black in theater mode. Gaming mode is nice because dark dark roo...
Cons: Switching between DVI and VGA does take 2-3 seconds. Not a big deal but I'm use to faster switches with other models. And really.. how often do you switch? Just when working on the neighbors desktop because they obtained a virus 'somehow!'
Summary: my display is in a dark room but these settings should give you a start on callibrating your new Asus monitor hope it helps [SPLENDID] (Theater Mode) [COLOR] Brightness:(60) Contras:(90) Saturation:(70) ColorTemp:(Warm) SkinTone:(Natural) SmartView:(Off)
Pros: I only review products that are 5/5 eggs to me with that said this is a wonderful display evrything is just perfect color,contras & brightness with the proper tweaking ofcourse.....look at "Other Thoughts" for help
Cons: out of the box this display visually is a mess you need to fidle with the setting if you are not well versed with the menu it could prove to be a daunting task
