You get what you pay for

Steve S., Newegg
11 January 2016
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor to replace a completely different monitor that I've had since 2007, and that monitor didn't have any of the issues that this monitor has. I would be willing to give the benefit of the doubt that some of the issues listed might just be the result of a defective monitor...
  • Pros: A large 27" monitor for a great price. The initial set-up (attaching the stand to the monitor) was very easy.
  • Cons: The menu buttons are very jumpy and difficult to navigate. Speakers don't work at all, certain connections on the back of the monitor fail to connect with my computer (all but one HDMI connection, which at least allowed me to use the monitor). The things mentioned were not really a big deal to me...

  • Summary: Menus are cumbersome because of the touch buttons.
  • Pros: Nice Colors, great picture from a distance
  • Cons: I bought 2 of these for a dual setup. Both have vertical line noise... a lot of it! I set the sharpness to 50 and vertical line noise is obvious on some colors. Set the sharpness to 70 and vertical line noise is obvious on other colors. I'm running DVI to HDMI. I think I will try running it throu...

Awful customer service

Ray R., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Summary: Give me a monitor! i spent nearly $300 and only had it for a day
  • Pros: Great monitor in general Sounds decent for built in speakers Looks good
  • Cons: Worst customer support I've ever dealt with. It would take an incredible long post to list all the times they've fvcked me over during my RMA. Recived the monitor with 4 dead pixels and many that had dead sub pixels. Sent it in almost a month ago and still have not received it. I have been lied t...

Yes and NO, but merely so so

Anonymous, Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: Overall I'd not recommend this monitor to my clients, or friends. I am amazed ASUS released such a poor quality piece of equipment. I'm usually completely satisfied with ASUS. This one fell far from the tree. Then fell in a hole where the floor gave out, and fell some more.
  • Pros: Color depth is amazing while having very little bleeding. Very thin bezel, but I'd still not recommend it for a multi monitor setup side to side. Extremely bright (also a con though) mine had no dead pixels and I've owned it 11 months. I didn't buy it from newegg, it was in a local box store, and...
  • Cons: Every setting is so bright!! It reminds me of the dynamic mode on newer TVs. I dislike that a lot! Things just don't look right. Do NOT bother trying to read text. By far the worst monitor I've ever owned when it comes to the text. Not only are they blurry, but you can see colors surrounding the ...

Dead after 2 weeks

Nick B., Newegg
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Speakers are ok, not the best by any means.
  • Pros: Great looking display for the price,
  • Cons: Died after 2 weeks of use. guess its to be expected when you get a refurbished item, hoping the replacement will last longer.

Relolution is not great

Jairo, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this screen with my MacBook Pro. The screen brings good extra space but the resolution is not so great. I work with graphics and I see most things pixelated on the MX@&(H 27" screen.
  • Pros: Large Viewing Area
  • Cons: Poor picture quality

Annoying Pixelated Line

Andrew C., Newegg
30 September 2013
  • Pros: Beautiful display colors, nice thin bezel and easy setup.
  • Cons: Very annoying pixelated line starting from the bottom then it goes up about three quarters to the top and goes across the rest of the screen. Was very excited to get this monitor because i was upgrading from a very old monitor and was disappointed when i hooked it up only to have to unhook it and...

User Review

Dragica M., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: probably would not get a asus monitor again ...
  • Pros: good design, slim
  • Cons: Two dead pixels upon arrival not really impressed with that, ive owned 3 LG monitors not one had a dead pixel. Especially considering this is asus "high end" line i didnt expect dead pixels..

Extremely disappointed.

jcole, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: Everything on the left and right edges of the screen is dark. Text is blurry in some games even after running auto setup multiple times. Even at 100% brightness and contrast everything (including the stuff in the middle of the screen) still seems dark.

Not worth the price or the frustration

Jason A., Newegg
1 April 2013
  • Summary: The first monitor from Newegg arrived with no sound and the picture was dark even at 100% brightness. ASUS support couldn't figure out the sound issue so I exchanged it for another one. The second arrived with the same problems - no sound and a dark picture. I'm sending this monitor back today.
  • Pros: Nice design, matte finish over the lcd (=no reflections), ASUS support actually has live people in the US.
  • Cons: No sound, picture is dark, controls are too sensitive, not really a true "frameless" design.
