Hard to beat

Symtec i., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: I went boldly where few have gone: putting the Asus monitor on the road (with the right suitcase and padding) and show off our videos using a DVD player, not a PC. So far, at each exhibition, it seems we have the best screen in the room (in truth, many don't bother and use laptops with not so great...
  • Pros: It's hard to go back to an LG or even a Samsung of similar size right after using this Asus. Initially my various scanners were connected to various computers but it seems that most have migrated to the computer with the Asus screen. I wonder why...
  • Cons: Hard to find: so far no bad pixel, and no need to call Asus.

Inconsistent

Brent Peterson, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this monitor because I already had one and wanted a 2nd for dual screen purposes. The screens do not match in color at all. I tried manually adjusting and using spyder express to calibrate them and they will not even come close to the same color balance. Not cool.

Great until it died

William H., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I had hoped to get more than a year out of this monitor, but it failed on me while I have several shoots to edit, which is a huge inconvenience and hassle. The Asus support line seems like it's set up so that you get lost in the phone tree and give up.
  • Pros: Good color and resolution, until it quit working
  • Cons: I had this monitor for 8 months and then it wouldn't turn on correctly. I would have to unplug it and plug it back in. It wasn't that frequent so I did nothing. A year later it was doing it daily. Now at 1.5 years it won't work at all. I have to send it in and will have to do my work on a backup ...

Best monitor in the price point

David D., Newegg
9 October 2013
  • Summary: I would have given it a 5 rating if it had been updated to the USB 3.0 and it would have been an easy upgrade to retrofit existing product. I see that as an intentional avoidance to recall older stock and update. Financially, times are tight so only a 1 ding for an otherwise flawless monitor.
  • Pros: Not much here as it's the best monitor I've use since 1986. Also, the Adobe RGB color space is awesome.
  • Cons: Since I purchased the monitor in the age of USB 3.0, it would have been nice to have that upgrade instead of the USB 2.0.

Terrible flickering problem

Amazon Customer "Cynthia", Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product from newegg, but felt obliged to warn other prospective buyers here too. The monitor started off well enough, but then started to develop the flickering (screen goes black for 1-3 seconds) that so many others have complained about after a month or two. It keeps getting worse.

Port problems

Dr. Quinton O. Riggins "Old Man", Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: I have had this monitor well over a year now. I loved the color for photo processing. I really loved taking my SD card out of my camera and putting it directly into the reader on the side of the monitor.

Excellent color

Edward V. Velez, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my old LCD that was ok but just didnt give me the wide gamut I needed to work on my photos. The color on this monitor is excellent and when calibrated I do get a 100% SRGB and 98% Adobe RGB which is right in line with the specs.

DO NOT BUY

jim s., Newegg
2 June 2013
  • Summary: Great, I spent all this cash for the perfect screens, I'm still paying them off, and now I have giant eyecatching lines across them. Guess I'll do another round of asus RMA >.< 5th time this year.
  • Pros: Well for the first year my 3 pro art screens worked great...
  • Cons: Well for the first year my 3 pro art screens worked great! .. now 2 out of 3 have whole lines of color appearing on them. One has a giant red line, another has a giant yellow line. Asus is becoming known for shotty quality these days. I don't know anyone who has bought asus and not have had to do...
