Summary: Four stars only because while this monitor works beautifully for a very reasonable price, after I installed it, it refused to work at all until I disconnected the HDMI cable from my NVIDIA add on to my TV. I called Asus (Asus customer service speaks American English! HOORAH) and he fiddled with some drivers (deleted and I think added) without positive result. We closed the conversation by playing the blame game; Dell, NVIDIA's or someone else un-named.
Summary: The monitor works great. I only gave it 4 stars because the Key Features section above claims that it comes with Picture-in-Picture mode to see 2 different inputs at once. This does not appear to be the case.
Summary: Standard HDMI cable needed to use on board speakers. Sound quality not the best but it frees up space on a small desk to not have external speakers sitting out. Setup was easy, DVI, VGA, HDMI ports for whatever you want to use. I read other reviews and selected this model, I hope this review helps you. I like this monitor.
Summary: This is a nice monitor for the price. Good quality picture, decent color reproduction. It arrived with all good pixels. The size is perfect for casual desktop use. It's very suitable for gaming. The only real negative to this monitor is the very poor speakers. They are so weak at 100% sound level that you can barely hear them. Any background noise in the room and they are useless.
