Was great then...

Michael H., Newegg
5 October 2015
  • Summary: I am not sure if I just got a "bad egg" but when the monitor was new it was working amazing; shortly after using it (less than 300 hours) it began to "act up." I purchased this monitor when it was still relatively new to the market and now I no longer use this monitor anymore so now it is just...
  • Pros: Really big, nice viewing angle. The speakers are not bad if you have nothing else to use. Great color and picture quality.
  • Cons: Well I have owned this for a little over a year, and within the first 4 months of owing this monitor it started to burn the image(s) into the screen. If Im playing a game which has a stay in place bar (i.e health bar, action bar ect.) the image will burn into the screen in little time at all (les...

Great Monitor

Eric S., Newegg
12 March 2015
  • Summary: The arm that connects to the stand is pushed flat in the box and requires some pulling to move it from it's initial position. I was worried that it was either broken or that I would break the monitor by pulling on it too hard, but once I got it loose I haven't had any problems.
  • Pros: The ultra wide 2560x1080 resolution is great for multi-tasking. You can have multiple windows open at the same time without compromising the size of the windows. The screen is crisp and bright.
  • Cons: The sound isn't the greatest through line-in, but I have a separate sound system so it's not a huge issue. I haven't tried the audio through HDMI, but would assume it's the same.

Awesome styling/picture. Capacitive buttons are the worst - DisplayPort issue, wont and resume from standby - support sucks

  • Summary: This monitor has a great picture, and the styling is awesome. It "looks" great all around. I ordered on of normal these for a customer and was so impressed with the picture and style that i ordered my own. However, i soon discovered the good stops there.

Good panel, poor case

DavidV S., Newegg
27 January 2015
  • Summary: ASUS doesn't actually manufacture the panel itself, so you can get the exact same screen with all the pros without the poor construction.Additionally, the back of the monitor doesn't seem to be compatible with third party multi-monitor stands and wall mounts, so keep that in mind if you are thinking...
  • Pros: Excellent LCD panel. Bright, clear, with an amazing amount of work space and lots of options for managing color, etc. 2560X1080 is the way to go if you use lots of screen space when working.
  • Cons: The buttons on the front are not mechanical in any way - just brushing them with your finger will activate them, which can be very frustrating in a tight work space. It happens alot, enough to make me wish I bought this from another manufacturer. There is a metal trim strip at the bottom of the m...

Amazing monitor

Donna W., Newegg
4 January 2015
  • Summary: Just an amazing monitor. Ive never seen one like it and Ive used many monitors over the years. Im a pure hard core gamer and for that it is performing great. Everything Ive played so far.....even older titles from mid 2005 or so....have supported the 2560x1080 res.
  • Pros: Huge screen space great AH-IPS panel fast no ghosting Great for gaming Thin Gets compliments and questions :)
  • Cons: None really....kinda big for my gaming space but thats my own fault because I use a chest and not a regular desk.

Wonderful image

Gary S., Newegg
20 December 2014
  • Summary: You will get used to the odd aspect ratio quickly and after a while prefer it. You can easily do side-by-side documents or internet or whatever.
  • Pros: This monitor has the best image of any monitor that I have owned in 30 years. Works well with games as well as applications. I have had no problems with the workmanship on mine. I bought this after researching the best computer monitor on the internet (C.R.) and I have not been disappointed.
  • Cons: After reading the reviews at this time, it appears that others are having trouble with the build quality of their monitors. I would suggest sending them back and getting a new one. Possibly spotty quality control but mine has been perfect. Quality control is not typical of Asus.

Does what it should

Bon, B&H Photo
23 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I've used this for several months since I work remotely. The monitor is on throughout the day while I work and sometimes at night for recreational use.I've had zero problems with it. It works exactly as expected.In my case, I need a single monitor that could support one large RDP maximized window.

  • Pros: - it's wide.
  • Cons: - Overly sensitive buttons in bad position. (-1 egg) - Poor quality. (-2 eggs)

Looks nice but is not compatible with Mac

Mia, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: Looks nice but is not compatible with Mac. Talked to Asus on the phonee and they told me of this issue. On Mac with latest OSX this monitor cannot display in highest resolution modes. If you own a PC looks like a great monitor.
