Excerpt: I bought this monitor because of the built in speakers. Although the sound isn't so great, the picture well makes up for that. The images are sharp and I can see every detail. I've been playing PC games for a while and after buying this monitor, I have noticed a significant difference in the quality of games that I play. When editing in programs like Premiere or Photoshop, I can see small details that I didn't see on my old monitor.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Summary: I really LOVE this monitor! The colors are BOLD and the screen is plenty big enough for my 53 year old eyeballs. BUT... it is LOUD. As in VERY bright. I haven't messed with the monitors settings much because it doesn't bother me as much as it might bother others who sit directly on top of it. Mine sits on the corner of a 6 foot training table and I am usually at least 4 feet away from it. I have turned down my brightness a little bit within Windows.
Summary: This was a pretty good monitor out of the box, and the speakers were useless like most people say, and it gave me about 3 months of satisfying use. I even gave it a four star review. But I think I've just changed my mind. When I first got the monitor it was hard to get the color scheme right but I figured I could tolerate a unusually bright picture if I was getting 24 inches of 1080p picture, right?
Summary: I got my first monitor in summer of 2012 and still works perfectly, got my other two as I got more into PC gaming and Video Editing. Now nearly 2 years later there are no dead pixels and the monitor still works fine. Leave it to Asus to make another amazing product! As a student in Video production. This was a great way for me to get as much work space as I needed on my screens and still not destroy my bank.
Summary: Great mid-line monitor for gaming. 2ms rate and 1080p clarity, very deep, contrasting, vivid, and just all around amazing colors that blow my mind during video-gameplay. Would love to buy 2 more of these to set up multi-monitors for the ultimate gaming experience. But one is great for now:) oh and speakers (are not good). But I'm leaving them out of the rating because the purpose of a monitor is for the display only. Buy separate speakers if you want good sound!!!
Summary: This monitor is GREAT for the money. I bought it for my PS4 and i'm not disappointed. I like that it has a 2ms response time and that really helps when playing games like CoD. The 1080p display is very vivid and can be tweaked to your liking. Also reviews say it has ghosting but that can be fixed via settings menu.
Excerpt: The image & sound reproduction are very good. I have no way to comment on it being HD or not. But I suppose it is. The controls are really disappointing. Instead of being in front of you, you have to work it out from underneath, with plenty of light. Very weird !! The worst things are the connection ports.
