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: Though not the best monitor out there, it is very acceptable for the sale price I purchased it at. They make a great second or third monitor if you are picky, but make a fantastic main monitor if you are on a budget and just don't care about the little things.
Pros: 2ms response time eliminates ghosting, bright, crisp and clear picture, price
Cons: back light bleed through at all the edges (on darker pictures or videos the LED light can be seen [for those wondering what I mean by bleed through]}, speakers are very quiet, if you need sound outside of headphones, buy some.
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: WTH Overdrive? The monitor have this 'LCD overdrive' function that basically controls the screen response time. I was told. By ASUS. IT CAUSES AN AFTERGLOW ON THE SCREEN THAT TRAILS MOVING OBJECTS. It's annoying. I look at spreadsheets and emails all day with black text on white background. Moving the cursor and scrolling causes afterglow havoc all over. QUIT IT.
Pros: -Plenty of screen real estate
Cons: LED is bright out-of-box. But that's easily remedied by wearing sunglasses and going into menu and turning it down. This I think, is why the monitor have back-light bleeding edges though. Your mileage may vary. It's not bad, hard to notice unless you have a black background.
Summary: This can be turned off, however, by turning off the Overdrive feature. This turns the response time to 5ms and eliminates the ghosting. Most people won't notice the difference. However, as this monitor doesn't seem to store that setting it must be turned off each and every time the monitor changes resolution, gets turned off or enters power saver mode. This is a VERY big hassle.
Pros: This monitor is a LED backlight monitor, meaning you will save some money in power and it won't get as hot. The colours are much more vibrant compared to my VH242H, a monitor of the exact same size and resolution from ASUS. Response time is, indeed, 2ms. However, it does this by using their Overdrive feature, which is actually a con (see below).
Cons: As with other reviews, the ghosting on this thing is BAD. While playing video games or even just browsing websites, you will clearly notice the ghosting to an extreme level. When moving the mouse at a slowish level, it leaves roughly a second outline of the mouse cursor.
Summary: i had flickering pixels with my unit, some noise comming of the headphones, colors were washed out when i connected it to PC, but when on PS4 i pretty much enjoyed it, if it woul be in 100-120 range it would be ok for its money, but since its higher, no i would not recommend it
