HDMI Port doesn't Work!

Elizabeth, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: Bought one last year for work. Couldn't get the HDMI port to work. We returned it and asked for an exchange. The 2nd one came in, still said no signal after we plugged in the cable. Since we really need it, we twisted and jiggled and finally, it came to live! Since then, we had no trouble using it. So when it comes to time to replace another monitor in the office, we went ahead bought another Asus with HDMI port. Received it yesterday, SAME PROBLEM!!

Rich audio... no, it's not rich, it's downright terrible

Twainn Mark "Mark Twain", Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: The Amazon sales page claims "Built-in stereo speakers for rich audio quality while saving space" Sorry ASUS, you need to be honest and truthful with your advertising claims. You are well aware the speakers on this monitor are absolutely horrid. My cell phone has louder speakers than this monitor. In fact, I question whether they are actually 1 watt speakers. I've learned my lesson, guys. I hope you do, too.

not that great

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Review, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: pros: cheap (though not anymore) mediocre resolution for price (though not anymore) cons: Horrible blue/gray backlight leakage when the screen is "black", especially around the edges, but as far as 1/3 of the way around the edges. No displayport (not deducting stars for that one).

Don't Buy It

Nicole Wian, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had the display hooked up for exactly 14 days when it quit working. Screen says "No HDMI connection" - the display's menu button will not work. Called The PC Doctor and after various diagnostics and hooking up the old display (which works fine) he gave me the bad news - my new display is bad. I called ASUS Customer Service and was told that my only options are to send it in for repair or get a refurbished replacement. Outrageous! This is a new monitor.

Review of ASUS VE228H LED Monitor

ckb, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: I was looking forward to receiving my new monitor to serve as a second (slave) off my laptop in my home office. I mounted it on the swivel arm attached to my desktop ready to go, then found the monitor had been incorrectly manufactured -- the outside case was installed in such a way as to prevent insertion of any of the plug in cords: power cord, HDMI cord, DVI, etc. -- it looked as if the manufacturer had totally missed any quality check.

7 Dead Pixels Including 2 Bright Red Ones Right In The Center Of The Screen

MJ, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: It looked good out of the box but mine showed signs of poor quality control with 7 dead red and blue pixels. Be sure to load up an all black screen and check it for random dots when you first get a monitor to see if you got a lemon. UPDATE: I sent it back for a replacement but ASUS sent it back claiming there were no dead pixels.

Cheap construction and dead/stuck pixels

Chris Chadwick, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: As soon as I unboxed this monitor, I wasn't too impressed. Although all monitors are plastic these days, somehow this felt especially cheap. The screen bezel wasn't flush against the screen (I could easily insert my finger nail in the gap), and flexed easily, when pressed. However, the worst was yet to come, when I switched it on. It had 3 stuck/dead pixels in the central area of the screen. One was bright green, and stuck out like a sore thumb, on a black background.
