View Great, Audio BAD

Alan K., Newegg
18 March 2016
  • Summary: Purchased two units for work. Intentionally looked for monitors with speakers to allow employees sounds, but not excess cables or too much/loud sound. The sound at max volume at all settings would not wake a sleeping baby. I will keep monitors b/c too difficult to return, but sound is VERY SUB-PAR.
  • Pros: Video is very good and replaced older units
  • Cons: Audio is so sub-standard, these monitors should not be listed as "with speakers"

Will Not Run At 75hz

Bryan B., Newegg
28 August 2015
  • Summary: If you're expecting to order a monitor that runs at 75hz or higher this isn't the monitor you are looking for. We purchased this monitor primarily because it's specifications said it supported 75hz.
  • Pros: Great color reproduction.
  • Cons: Short base. Will not run at specified maximum refresh rate at native resolution.

Short life span?

Derek B., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Pros: This was a reasonably priced monitor for the size and visual quality at the time. I purchased two of these on 5-02-2011 for a dual monitor configuration for a co-worker. Around 01-25-2013 one of the monitors developed a faint grid pattern in the background. I contacted Asus and they replaced it, ...
  • Cons: Possible issue with this particular Asus model or production run around May 2011.

Bad LED strip

N/A, Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: I'd like to see more manufacturers include better speakers in their monitor.
  • Pros: These are usually awesome monitors. They have built-in speakers that are at least as good as those cheaper plastic desktop speakers you might have, so for an office PC with limited sound, like Internet radio, they'll suffice. Picture quality is good, usually pretty evenly lit. Colour quality on S...
  • Cons: I ordered one and got one with a defective LED strip on the right side of the screen (hence the low score, otherwise I would probably rate it a strong 4). The top few inches of the right edge weren't backlit, so I ordered a replacement. Speakers are nothing special (see above). Keep your subwoofe...

Falls a few pixels short.

Alexander E., Newegg
23 June 2014
  • Summary: The first monitor I received had a cluster of dead pixels on it. I sent it back to Newegg (completely hassle free) and just received a new monitor, also with dead pixels. I am very disappointed with the quality of ASUS products.
  • Pros: Compact monitor with full 1080 resolution DVI and HDMI inputs VESA mounting points
  • Cons: Expect dead pixels They should change the specifications to True Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (minus 2 to 5 pixels)

Asus VE228H

Ali B., Newegg
10 May 2014
  • Summary: I got the same monitor over 3 years ago which still works flawlessly today, and where the color is much clearer than the new one. Asus decided to go cheap on the screens with the newer models. The first monitor delivered had a dead pixel, which also shows how low quality the screens have gotten.
  • Pros: Convenient packaging.
  • Cons: Speakers aren't that good. This newer model has a very low quality screen where all the colors have a yellowish tone.

no powercord

GF, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Product was shipped without a power cord. This makes the product essentially unusable until someone from Asus can get a replacement shipped. This is the downside of buying online. I contacted Asus and they refused to take any responsibility for it.

FloridaSr, Walmart
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this moniter because of the built in speakers. What a disappointment to find they do not work. I bought a new sound card and they still do not work.
