Extremely pleased after over a year of usage.

Travis Herdt, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this monitor professionally, and it has served me unswervingly well. Now, my impression might be skewed considering this monitor was replacing, a pretty terrible 6 year old monitor but I really do love working with this screen.

Very good, but problem with two monitor setup

  • Excerpt: The monitor is very good, but it has a problem when using two monitors. When the Asus monitor is my main display, it sometimes does not function correctly when being woken up from sleep. There will be rainbow lines across the monitor. This does not happen when it is the secondary display.

Easy set up and install

  • Summary: Easy to set up and install. It took less than 30 minutes from opening the box to use. The clarity and color of the picture is an obvious upgrade from my old monitors. I love the size of the screen as well, I run a dual screen set up and usually have many documents open at once.

Impressive display with cheap power supply :(

  • Summary: First comes the excitement... then a big disappointment. I was very impressed by the display quality of this monitor. It was so pleasing to look at that I was even looking forward to come home and doing some work on it. The colors are crisp and bright but easy to look at - no eye strain.

Nice monitor, surprisingly impressed

Update to review. Clicking noise went away. As mentioned before, the colors of this monitor are great. 5 stars.

Ray Moluski, Amazon
3 March 2015
  • Summary: monitor colors are great, however after the 2nd day of use, there is a low volume clicking sound coming from the monitor. My monitor did not come with a brick, assuming it does not require one. Anyone else experiencing the clicking sound? All cables are included, nice color rendering for photo work.

Delivers the rich, accurate colors...

Stann, Amazon
29 January 2015
  • Summary: This Asus delivers the rich, accurate colors that graphics professionals require and it's jam-packed with features but it has trouble at the dark end of the grayscale, and it's expensive. Pros: + Excellent color accuracy and viewing angles. + Versatile stand. + Generous port selection.
