Brightness button is non-responsive after less than a month
30 May 2013
Summary: I have had this monitor for less than a month. Today I discovered that the button on the underside of the monitor that controls the brightness and provides navigation through the on screen menu is dead. It is simply unresponsive no matter what I try. It was working previously. This is supposed to be one of the best monitors that Asus makes and it is unacceptable that it would have this type of failure after less than four weeks of use.
Little over 1 month of use, This display as developed mutliple bugs.

Summary: 4 weeks: Up arrow stop working. 5 weeks: Menu Button stop working & Alignment Grid 7 weeks After Display idles to sleep, it does not response to the computer waking up, additionally using the power button does not wake the display from sleep, the power cord must be pulled out. For a 700 dollar "professional" display, this is very amateur...
Summary: The monitor I purchased and returned at the beginning of April 2013 had a large amount of dirt or debris inside the screen. This wasn't the small, random, flecks of dust that can accidentally end up in most monitors, even from a clean room. No, this was as if someone had left the plastic covering the front outside for a day, and dirt accumulated on it before someone took it and pressed it against the front of the screen, sealing it in.
Summary: I ignored the reviews on here about the stuck/dead pixels and the dust behind the screen and decided to purchase this item because I love ASUS and because I want a awesome monitor. Well, that was my mistake. Everyone was right, this unit has some obvious quality control issues. for the $700 you will most likely be paying for this monitor I wouldn't expect issues like this.
Summary: Had to send 3 back till I received one without dead/stuck pixels or dirt under the anti glare coating. This can be a very nice monitor for the money, provided you get one without any QC issues.
Summary: I have just opened up my monitor I haven't even turned it on yet to find it is second hand. I am absolutely furious that I have been deceived. It has blatantly been used before. £450 for a second hand monitor is disgusting. I will be taking this further as a replacement is just not good enough as I am the one being messed around. Not a service I expect from any retailer let alone Amazon!
Too bad its good until there you see dust and stuck pixels

Summary: I really really liked this monitor. I thought I would try my luck and I not have any problems with pixels and dust. At 450 pounds a panel this big and lush looking should be flawless. When I discoverd the fleck of dust I was well hey maybe I can ignore it. Then after just 1 day a red stuck bright sub pixel manifested itself. Buying a monitor can be too stressful having to worried about these things. After all it is made to be looked at.
Fab until menu kept popping up in middle of screen

Summary: So frustrated. I paid over £600 for this monitor in August. It has developed a fault - the pop up on screen monitor keeps appearing and I'm not pressing any buttons. Having unplugged it at the mains, the leads and from my pc it still does it. And the menus skim through one another as though someone is pressing a menu button making it flick through.
