Beautiful Screen; Speakers Mysteriously Broke

Frank, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: Positive: Beautiful monitor, especially for the price. No dead pixels. The stand is high quality, and every cord I could need was supplied. Negative: The speakers are cheap, and they mysteriously broke on mine. This isn't a big issue for me since I have spare computer speakers and didn't plan on using the integrated speakers anyway. I have no surge protector on this monitor, so I suppose it's possible a surge destroyed the speakers.

  • Summary: Strictly from a picture quality standpoint, this is a decent monitor. The image is bright and crisp. Everything else about it is sub-par; the case looks like it's made from recycled plastic, the base is too light and spins instead of staying in place when you rotate the screen, and the buttons are horribly small and hard to press.
  • Pros: Nice Picture
  • Cons: Cheap Stand, Buttons Too Small, Feels Light & Flimsy

Solid build, but uneven lighting

Max K., Amazon

  • Summary: The stand and casing of the monitor are great, as they are durable and not overly flashy, unlike some of the other monitors out there. I returned this monitor because of a very prevalent back light bleed in the lower left corner. This made it impossible to enjoy anything with darker color, especially movies or certain desktop photos. This was an obvious backlight issue, and not just a typical "IPS glow.

  • Summary: I received the PB238Q for Christmas after giving my family a few monitors to select  from. For whatever reason I never found the PA248Q in my Xmas-list building searches and I really wish I had as its a 1920x1200. NCIX wouldn't do an exchanges citing its in their return policy; ( wow - long list of exceptions in that policy). I should have told my family to not buy from NCIX but from Amazon who have a great return policy. My mistake.
  • Pros: A great monitor at a good price; great specs. I especially like the side usb ports the fully adjustable height and swivel. Nice and bright.
  • Cons: I wish I had told my family about the PA248Q which is 1920x1200

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Billig skärm, men var medveten om att den har väldigt mycket IPS-glow om du inte tittar rakt framifrån. Är osäker på om det gäller samma sak för övriga Asus-skärmar. Bytte från en TN skärm, Samsung SyncMaster 226BW, ( http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?p=151398 ) och färgerna är helt klart mycket bättre på Asus-skärmen.

  • Summary: Backlight bleeding nere i högra hörnet; antagligen pga. LED indikatorn (inte den första som märkt av det). Köpte denna skärm bl.a för att jag trodde den hade samma funktioner i menyn som PA238Q (som bl.a tillåter en att stänga av indikatorn, så jag trodde inte jag skulle ha detta problemet eftersom jag hade planerat att stänga av den i vilket fall som helst), men aj så fel jag hade (hade endast kollat manualen för PA238Q innan jag bestämde mig för denna - dumt...

Bon écran, mais ...

Jmagine, Amazon

  • Summary: la livraison est parfaitement correcte MAIS, on voit que l'écran n'a pas été vérifié. Le connecteur est défectueux - l'écran est rouge -. avec le connecteur HDMI. Sinon j'ai eu le temps de le tester avec le port VGA, l'écran est très beau ( avec quelques réglages ), l'articulation semble robuste ainsi que le châssis. Le fait qu'il puisse pivoter est très agréable pour le travail de bureautique. Les boutons sont bien placés comme les connecteurs.
