6 months and dead

C. P. Oda, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: After reading all the reviews, I certainly thought this would be a great purchase. After 6 months the monitor has completely died on me, and won't turn on. I've kept it clean and kept good care of it (never moved it) and it still died. Hopefully Asus will be able to fix it or replace it under warranty.

Great monitor for the price

Greg, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: We had to replace a first generation flat panel apple display, and this one works just fine with our mac. We are artists and don't want to have to think too much about techno stuff, calibration, etc. We're using it plug and play and it seems just fine, sharp and good color.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Two defected? Or just not good?

Bic "Get it? Pen name?", Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this monitor because after weeks of looking and shopping around I finally decided on the Asus PA248Q. Now, I know what you're saying, this isn't that. True. Honestly, the reason I got the PB248Q is because the PA inexplicably jumped in price from 320 dollars to $450 in a five day span. After trying for days to find out the differences between the two I couldn't come up with anything solid that translated to $200 in my head, so I got it.

It stopped working after a month

Efrén Díaz "Efrén Díaz", Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: This is an awesome product, until it fails. Mine worked for about 1 month and then it started changing screen modes on it's own, I was able to get that to stop, and two days ago it started doing the same with the quick fit option, so now I have an useless monitor, that I can't sent for repair because I don't live in the US and I can't get a refund either. Don't buy this, just go for a better brand.

Love the monitor but... support is really, really bad

C B, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: Purchased June 2013 from Amazon. Spent extra $s to get a professional grade monitor with great reviews. Love the monitor but... support is really really bad. If you depend on a monitor to do your work I recommend you steer clear of ASUS. The DVI port failed in October. Now after more than a month, 7 phone calls and multiple on-line support chats... nada. The southern Indiana support people are nice, but nothing comes of it. -10/11, 2013.

Stopped working after a few weeks

Jonathan Kikrham, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: After about 3 weeks of use every time I turned on the monitor all the RGB settings were set to Zero aswell as the contrast and brightness meaning the display was black until I manually changed the settings one by one which became irritating fast. After a week of messing around installing drivers and trying different cable combinations and multiple laptops/PC's I came to the conclusion that it was faulty and had to return to supplier for a refund.

  • Excerpt: Хотел очень этот монитор из за универсальности и хороших отзывов, но ввиду массового брака в плане засвета с левой стороны ....полностью разочаровался в мониторе и производителе.
  • Pros: удобное расположение кнопок, USB, добротно собранная конструкция, звук не пищалки как у LG..
  • Cons: засвет в левом нижнем углу НА ВСЕХ мониторах которые были в магазине.

très déçu

mosso2000, Amazon
9 May 2013
  • Summary: Acheté en remplacement (économique) d'un DELL U3011. Reçu rapidement, construction solide, emballage complet. Cependant le rétro-éclairage était trop forme et pas du tout homogène, et aucun réglage n'y a fait. Remplacé du coup par un écran AOC A-IPS deux fois moins cher et bien meilleur concernant les noirs et l'IPS glow, et tout aussi bon sur les couleurs et la réactivité.

  • Excerpt: Обычная E-IPS матрица, никакой матрицы AH-IPS нет.
  • Pros: Отсутствие глянца на корпусе и экране. Эргономичный корпус. Неплохое качество сборки. Наличие всех современных портов подключения.
  • Cons: Просто ужасная равномерность подсветки, смотрите сами: http://yadi.sk/d/zDsXrLNd0xX8g. Смотрел 3 экземпляра у разных продавцов, проблема подсветки одна. Бледные цвета. Черный скорее серый. Лесенки в градиентах. После старого Samsung 940FN, просто ужасный монитор.
