Pre-calibration? Not exactly...

PoppySeeds, B&H Photo
20 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I do like the monitor, and trusted the pre-calibration claim. However, since then, I have learned that what is on my screen was not on the other monitors or printers - in fact it was very, very different. Did a test. It was way off.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Portrait Or Landscape, Sharp Image, Sturdy, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Inaccurate Colors

Excellent value, some stability issues

  • Excerpt: The ASUS screen performance for color display is first rate for this price range. The 4 port USB 3 hub works great with an HDMI input to drive a pair of decent USB speakers. Operating in Yosemite, once the screen has gone to sleep, it loses color control if you select your own desktop -- when...

Best monitor I've ever owned... if only it didn't have one problem.

Aleks Mueller, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: Lots of features (namely the 1:1 pixel feature that shows different resolutions at the correct aspect ratio instead of stretching things out), great/accurate color reproduction (the factory calibration is unreal), has lots of hardware bells and whistles like USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and so on, nice...

IPS panel

Rae S., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Pros: Has many desirable features like LCD back lighting.
  • Cons: The panel technology has a property that some users may find disagreeable. There is a noticeable dark area between the pixels. This makes displayed pictures and text look grainy.

  • Pros: Good picture quality, good adjustability of the stand, higher than HD resolution (1200 vs. 1080).
  • Cons: Bad for gaming. The screen goes black for 1-2 seconds whenever the mode changes. Very annoying. I would not have bought this model if I knew that was going to happen.

Decent Monitor, if you find the right one

Lawrence H., Newegg
28 November 2013
  • Summary: ASUS' quality control is pretty bad. The monitor I got from Newegg had horrible backlight bleeding from the corners, mixed in with IPS glow. I returned that monitor, and proceeded to go to a local computer store to buy two more (Two because I know one of them is going to be another lemon).
  • Pros: USB 3.0 Hub, comes with DisplayPort cables, very sturdy stand with pivot, swivel, and tilt. Build quality is decent,. Fast response times compared to others (Dell U2412M for example). Color Calibrated. Great resolution. AG coating isn't aggressive at all. Colors do not shift as viewing angle chan...
  • Cons: Backlight bleeding, viewing angles are not exactly 178, IPS glow is very apparent. Huge variance in quality

  • Summary: Overall, happy with the visual quality of this monitor. I wanted IPS. I wanted 1920x1200 at least and this provides it. Great visual quality but online comments abound regarding DVI signal/blinking issues. I haven't noticed this though.
  • Pros: 16:10 resolution. IPS. Tilt and pivot. Professional Grade
  • Cons: complaints online regarding bleeding backlight/DVI blinking problems. USB hub problem ends up damaging flash drives plugged in.

Good value for photo-editing

JerryG, B&H Photo
6 August 2013
  • Excerpt: My old Samsung 2230 was becoming difficult to calibrate, so I decided to purchase a new monitor for photo-editing. Photography is a hobby for me; I wanted to stay well below the $1000+ price of top-notch dedicated photo-editing monitors.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

little defects

Mathieu M., Newegg
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Would need a 1920x1200 touchscreen for my third monitor which is hard to find.
  • Pros: Great looking.
  • Cons: Every time i move the screens a bit, the power cable comes off. It's really annoying, after spending 330$ I would expect better.
