Product is fine, but......

Richard, Amazon
20 September 2010
  • Summary: I like the product, but I don't like the fact that it gave me the option to buy 20, but when I did, they shipped 2 at a time over several weeks.

Good Colors, Good Value (except for the Calif. eWaste tax)

Anonymous, Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Summary: -1 egg because of the way the Californa.eWaste recycling tax is handled in checkout, . Newegg should show the Californa. eWaste tax ($16 for this monitor [Greater than or equal to 15 inches but less than 35 inches], it doubled on 1/1/09) early in the checkout process.
  • Pros: Nice looking, bright colors (they "pop"), fairly robust construction, good value for the (low) price. Reasonable selection of video modes. Also has viewing modes: (Standard, Theater, Game, Night Mode, Scenery) I like Theater mode. It's a good inexpensive monitor. Free Shipping.
  • Cons: Typical ASUS cutsyness. ("Splendid! Try me !" stickers) No horizontal or vertical size adjustment (-1 egg) Pray fervently that you never have to contact their support. It's the worst support of any of the Taiwan companies that I deal with. They don't / can't / won't understand your problem. Their...

Fine monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2010
  • Pros: Good packaging. The monitor worked fine. There's picture presets in the menu.
  • Cons: The menu is a little funky to navigate. No DVI, but you can't expect to buy a monitor that doesn't claim to have it and have a DVI monitor show up come shipping day...

Jason L., Newegg

  • Summary: Less stickers please.
  • Pros: Sharp picture, decent refresh rate, great price, and asus makes quality parts.
  • Cons: They decided to stick a bunch of stickers marking the options of the monitor all over it, make for a big mess while trying to clean them off. Otherwise no problems.

Not too bad

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Still worth it for the price but if you have the money, get one that automatically adjusts itself and doesn't have such dodgy colors. Also the menu is pretty annoying.
  • Pros: The price! Also, ASUS makes stuff that just doesn't break. No missing pixels either and this was shipped in -10 degree weather. Easy to assemble and shipped in a very protected box.
  • Cons: No auto adjust button! Even shutting it off and turning it back on won't make the pixels line up perfectly. Changing resolutions won't do it either. The only way is to go to the menu and do a master reset which resets all of the settings. Then it finally resizes itself perfectly. it was stuck wit...

  • Summary: The monitor has a simple and clean look. Spent a few minutes going through the setting and running ClearType to get everything looking just right.
  • Pros: Crisp text, nice color and no dead pixels.
  • Cons: None so far.

Good for the price

bryan j., Newegg
11 October 2008
  • Summary: I can't gripe too much for only paying $135 with free shipping...
  • Pros: I am using this monitor for duel monitors. It has a good native resolution and decent clarity.
  • Cons: The colors are too vibrant!! I tried tuning it on the monitor itself as well as using the ntune and still the colors are just to chromatic. Its not a huge problem for me seen as how its the secondary monitor.
