JUNK, because it is nearly impossible to connect cables

  • Excerpt: This monitor is excellent in most respects but fails due to a very significant flaw: the way that the ports on the back are located. Whoever did this design was an idiot in the truest sense of the word.
  • Cons: Difficult to Set Up

  • Summary: I had this monitor out of the box and back into it, ready to be returned, in the span of about two hours. After setting it up, the backlight bleed in all four corners and across the entire bottom edge of the panel was so offensive it warped white into yellow and black into off-green.

VERY POOR QUALITY CONTROL by ASUS

Online East Coast Shopper, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: This would be a good monitor for the price - if it worked. The first one I received broke after less than a week (totally dead, no backlight, nothing). The second arrived with the dreaded "spreading dead pixels".

User Review

Sparkminator, NCIX.com
23 March 2014
  • Summary: I went through 4 of these monitors and they all had issues. The first one had rainbowish backlight bleed at the bottom edge of the monitor. The next 3 all had dust or dirt under the anti-glare coating. Save yourself some trouble and look somewhere else to spend 700$ on a monitor.
  • Pros: Amazing picture quality, nice and solid stand, included cables, matte finish.
  • Cons: Backlight bleeding issues, dust/dirt under the anti-glare coating, poor quality control.

Significant debris inside screen.

Brandon, Amazon
27 April 2013
  • 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.
