Did anyone test this?

  • Summary: I had to give this monitor a 3 egg considering I was battling figuring out what was wrong with my display-port signal. I first thought it to be my pc then the cable itself. But then it turns out this monitor has a bug so annoying that if it goes to sleep with display-port on then it wont regain...
  • Pros: - Beautiful Screen - Ultra wide - Speakers - IPS
  • Cons: - Faulty interface - Display-port is bugged.

Already concerned

  • Summary: I would assume that this issue is most likely software related, so Asus should definitely consider working on a firmware update for this monitor to stop causing it to idle and ignore signal from the DisplayPort connection.
  • Pros: The monitor has a beautiful display without a doubt. Sharp images, great color depth and the ultra wide presentation is awesome for movies and games. Everything seems well built and sturdy, as well as the speakers not having a buzz to them as my previous Asus monitor had.
  • Cons: The main issue that I have with monitor is that it is currently disappointing and buggy when being used for gaming. The PC that it is hooked up to is half for gaming, half for school work. When gaming time comes around, it is for competitive RPG and FPS games at enthusiast level graphics. When th...

Great gaming monitor when it works.

  • Pros: Large display for gaming. Fast response time. Colors mix well. Grey area is not as bad as some other large gaming monitors. Asus brand.
  • Cons: Unfortunately mine is only 2 months old and beginning to act up. It flickers, shows lines sometimes and colors are off. It pops which is the oddest thing. Sending in for repair or replacement so I HOPE Asus replaces it as the cost was high. It hums also. It it was not for this I would rate 5 stars.

  • Excerpt: Брал в сентябре за 17т.р. Проработал он у меня 9 месяцев и начал включаться не с первого раза. При включении просто зависал, не реагировал на нажатия кнопок, подсветка работала, но изображения не было.
  • Pros: Широкий, влезает сразу несколько окон, очень удобно писать код. Регулировка по высоте - на мой взгляд необходимая опция в каждом мониторе для тех, кто много времени проводит за работой. Также хорошая минимальная яркость. Асус часто этим грешит, на некоторых мониторах у них минимальная яркость сли...
  • Cons: Пока работал - во время просмотра фильмов сильно раздражали засветы по углам, особенно слева. Советую обратить на это внимание при покупке. Картинка по сравнению с прошлым монитором AOC i2267Fw более резкая, и в то же время если их поставить рядом, то на этом как пелена какая-та. Возможно дело в ...

Médiocre bien trop cher pour la qualité réelle

  • Excerpt: Cet écran n'est pas un premier prix! Pourtant la qualité de l'image est correcte sans plus, il n'y a aucun un mode d'emploi et même si les premiers réglages sont automatiques pour affiner manuellement c'est plus compliqué.
