Beware quality and shipping

Jim S., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Summary: Ordered a display and cable from Newegg. Newegg quoted one shipping date - apparently the earliest between the two. Display shows up without cable.... When display arrived we notice it doesn't always stay on. The AC power plug is faulty. Barely wiggle a cable and the display winks out.
  • Pros: Monitor video performance is high.
  • Cons: AC power plug doesn't stay connected.

My monitor had pretty bad (at least in my informed opinion) backlight bleed ...

  • Summary: Picked up my version from Microcenter. I knew going into that it would be a monitor lottery, I just didn't realize how much I didn't want to put up with it. My monitor had pretty bad (at least in my informed opinion) backlight bleed in the top right and bottom right of the monitor.

dead pixels

jesus t., Newegg
15 October 2015
  • Pros: Awesome looking monitor and great resolution.
  • Cons: Started with 3 dead pixels and I felt so in love with that I decided to keep it, then after 3 months of use I saw another 3 dead pixels, and now after almost a year of use now I have over 10 dead pixels the worst pat about it 6 of them are in the middle of the screen. This is unacceptable for a m...

Beautiful Picture, Disappointing Featureset

Jesse K., Newegg
28 August 2015
  • Summary: This is the first tech breakup review I've ever written - I didn't want to write it until I tried to turn on the monitor this morning to do some coding. I detest this monitor, even though the color, picture and response times are all great.
  • Pros: Picture is great. ESO, KSP, D3 all look wonderful, as does Brackets/Eclipse for coding. After the brightness/contrast are adjusted properly, it's a great screen to look at from 30 inches away.
  • Cons: -1 star because this monitor doesn't 'sleep'. When the computer sleeps this monitor will flash a blue screen for 10 seconds duration every 2 minutes, stating "No HDMI SIgnal". Same goes for the Display Port. It's annoying regardless of how dark the room is. The engineer in me has calculated the R...

lyndin p., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: I but 95% of my computer parts on newegg, but this time i have to go somewhere else :(
  • Pros: i can tell its nice when it works
  • Cons: so this is my 2nd monitor that has been shipped to me. the first one was damaged due to usp treating my package like a rag doll (not asus or neweggs fault) my 2nd one has 2 dead pixels and a gray dot in the upper mid part of the screen. it appears that it is coming under the panel its self . I lo...

18 mon

Jason M., Newegg
24 June 2015
  • Summary: I will buy a Dell form Dell factory next. (if you want Dell support / warranty buy it from Dell)
  • Pros: Good picture, good stand and adjustment, good performance with GTX680.
  • Cons: Buttons are now non responsive. Support told me to unplug the monitor for 2 hours. Solved the problem for a few days. There is a persistent flaw with my monitor and they know it.

Nice monitor, when it works.

Jonathon N., Newegg
3 June 2015
  • Summary: I have tried calling Asus support and couldn't get through. I will try again when I have a few hours to kill...
  • Pros: Great image. NO tearing. NO glare. Love it
  • Cons: The case came with a rubbed off right corner. It ruins the aesthetics. It wasn't worth the $45 to ship it back and get a clean one. In hindsight, I should have shipped it back. It freakin' flickers. I get static lines across the screen and a loud popping noise. Happens a few times a day. Of cours...

Pixel problems

Jojo, Amazon
10 May 2015
  • Summary: This would be the perfect monitor in this price range if it weren't for a couple issues. My original purchase and several replacements all had 1 stuck colored pixel (bright dot as Asus calls them) Also each had quite a bit of backlight bleed.

amazing monitor if you get a good one

Corey S., Newegg
10 March 2015
  • Summary: I loved this monitor, unfortunately it had a scratch on the screen. Considering it was Refurb that means Asus failed twice on this monitor alone. Very disappointing. Newegg allowed an RMA to replace, but after shipping it back to them via standard (slow) shipping, they finally said they were just...
  • Pros: color, resolution, picture, it's a really awesome screen Stand was the best stand I've had on a monitor to date.
  • Cons: no picture-in-picture which I would have liked to see. Seems like a software issue that should be standard on a 27" monitor in my opinion.

After finding 3+ dead pixels I am not happy!

Geraldine M., Newegg
7 December 2014
  • Summary: If you have the extra money then go with something else. I am now depressed that I have to deal with returning this monitor. My grandson is also very sad because he was going to get my old monitor.
  • Pros: The price is ok..
  • Cons: I have found 3+ dead/stuck pixels in the first 2 days of use.. So I am not happy with this monitor at all. At first when I started it up it was amazing but once I started doing Photo Editing I noticed one purple pixel, then another.. Then a hour after that another one! I thought these Panels wher...
