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.
Excerpt: The monitor was shipped in a box with packaging well suited for safe transit. The monitor and all of its' surfaces were well protected with plastic installed on every surface. The monitor is gloss black and collects finger prints very easily. In all, the looks of the monitor are beautiful. As far as functionality the monitors screen display is fnatastic. For me, one drawback was the "Splendid" feature.
Pros: Adjustable, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Cons: Internal Screen Defect, Low Speaker Volume, Menu And Buttons Difficul
Summary: Got this to replace my gf's second monitor and so far Dell <Asus <LG <Samsung for me. Better than Dell's aging monitor but still worse than Samsung in terms of screen quality. Come to think about it, I think my LG monitor I bought for similar price has better quality than Asus. First Asus product which I wasn't impressed with.
Pros: Cheap (on sale $169.99 - 20 MIR)
Cons: Brightness/quality of the monitor is not up to my expectation
Summary: Instructions provided are useless to anyone who does not already know the operating protocols. This is my first monitor. It has 5 function buttons,some with multiple settings, so a minimum of 120 possibilities. Figure these out by trial and error? Operating instructions are not even part of your product rating. Not cool at all.
Summary: i am not going to compare this with my 27 inch dell ultrasharp u2711 which i paid much much higher price with all cons listed above, this is a very decent monitor at this price range, you could get this for $99 at warehouse sales, too bad it was in BC only
Pros: price is good
Cons: tn panel, viewing angel, resolution, no display port
Summary: This is a LCD monitor with LED backlighting. Picture is mediocre in quality. Picture color is pale in comparison to my ASUS netbook. Sound is low quality. Menu was difficult to adjust sound level. I don't think the auto input feature works well. I had to set the input manually to HDMI. I never could get the sound to work with the sound cable when using VGA. All in all, this is an adequate monitor. It is not what I would consider a high quality monitor.
Summary: Using it daily after my 22" LG died suddenly. It is a good monitor if viewed directly on-axis, but off-axis is a different matter, with very bad colour distortion and loss of contrast. As for 'black' there isn't any. The closest you get is a sort of uneven grey. There are no bad pixels yet though, or other issues. It's got speakers and they work with the HDMI, but are nothing special. For the price, at the time (2013), it wasn't bad and got me out of a hole. Now?
Summary: Good for its price tag. I'm using it next to my MAC Pro laptop as an extra monitor for my work and it certainly does the job, though when compared to the retina screen of the laptop itself, it is just miles behind in terms of crispness and colours. However it's light, stylish and works fine.
