Looks nice, DP non-functioning

Matt W., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Summary: No sense running a monitor this size without DisplayPort. That input died after a couple weeks of use. Sent it in for repair, it came back and lasted 3 days before it died again. Works fine with DVI. Asus customer service has been very poor and difficult to use.
  • Pros: Nice picture, clear colors
  • Cons: Display Port pooped out, twice.

nice buttons but not for games

Tony D., Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: This is a work monitor. I didn't like it at all for full screen applications like games, and movies. There just isn't enough support for a monitor this shape and frame rates seem to be lower near the edges for some reason I was using 2 GTX 470's at first then I switch to 1 GTX 770 with 2gig vram.

Great monitor but defective unit

Jason, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: The monitor is really great for office work. However, I have received a defective piece, which was showing a red line on the right side of the screen. Returned inside the 30 days and now I am looking for other options.

Not your all-around monitor

Michael R. Baron, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this monitor as a second screen for graphic design work and movie viewing, but the options for viewing are poor: 1:1, Stretch, and Overscan. In 1:1 mode you essentially have a 22.5" monitor, while the other modes distort the picture and are unacceptable for real movie lovers, and the...

Thin green line ruins a good display

EricR, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: After a few days of using this monitor, I had the same issue as other reviewers: a thin green vertical line appeared on the right side of the display. Nothing I did seemed to get it to go away; it would just intermittently pop up and stay for a few minutes and then would leave on its own.

Good if you just need some extra screen real-estate.

Confuzed Win User, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: Wanted to like this monitor... I did like the Matt screen but I could never get good text, and it was grainy and jaggedy even with a Display Port connection. HD Movies did look good, but HDCP will disallow the Duel DVI connection on protected media content. IPS light bleed was also annoying.

Not a good viewing angle like expected

Jez, Amazon
21 October 2015
  • Summary: If you sit about a foot away from the screen, it's hard to read both ends of the screen clearly. Not a good viewing angle like expected. Replaced for 2 x regular 24" screens (duel display). One at an angle. If you must get one screen consider looking at one of the new curved ones.

Der Lichtbringer

Faust, Amazon
11 August 2015
  • Summary: Das wichtigste an einem Monitor ist für mich das Bild, daher hier nur sehr kurz und knapp meine Bekanntschaft mit diesem Monitor: Die Ausleuchtung ist eine einzige Katastrophe! In allen vier Ecken leuchtet und strahlt es als würde jemand von hinten mit der Taschenlampe auf den Monitor leuchten!

  • Excerpt: Пользуюсь монитором 4 месяца, расскажу подробнее про основные недостатки. Во-первых, что хочется сразу отметить, картинка более блеклая по сравнению с моим прошлым монитором dell 2209wa. На градиентных изображениях отчетливо видны полосы. Но самая большая проблема заключается в засветах по углам.
  • Pros: Большая диагональ, корпус из качественного пластика
  • Cons: Блеклость изображения, сильные засветы по углам, подставка, нет usb портов
