Summary: I replaced a new Samsung with this Asus monitor. I had a functionality issue with the Samsung which is generally very good. I am extremely happy with the Asus. Picture is extremely good and the size is great with a small footprint. The speakers are okay; not better but I wasn't looking for super sound; just reasonable function. You can always add externals to suit your needs. Overall, terrific and easy to recommend.
Summary: One stuck pixel (green) near the bottom center of the screen (often hidden by the taskbar). Product still gets five stars because the color quality blows away my other two ASUS monitors, which can't even display a decent white after only a year of use. I'm considering buying two more of these, but am uncertain if all three will fit on my triple monitor stand.
Summary: Asus VE258Q 25" full HD Monitor with Intregated Speakers, Saw it, Wanted it, Bought it. Wanted something to augment my 19 inch HPw1907 monitor that still works great even though it is over six years old. It works great but, but not my eyes and was getting tired of squinting. After searching all over for a monitor that would help out I found the ASUS VE258Q. It has made a world of difference on my reading since I can really expand the size of the screen.
Summary: I'd give this a 4.5 if I could. I bought this a couple weeks ago and I haven't had any problems yet. It worked right out of the box, and was very easy to set up. I don't notice the stand being shaky, nor do I have a problem with blurry text as some have stated. The preset contrast and brightness were a bit high, and so are most the other presets it comes with. This is just a nitpick though, it's easy enough to just turn one or both down to suit your liking.
Speakers are merely ok, monitor quality is very good

Summary: These are the monitors we handout to new staff members and they are generally very good. Setup is easy, they are light, video quality is very good and they are light enough for us to mount them on swing arms for easy manipulation. Our only problem is with the built-in speakers. They are NOT going to give you great sound quality. That being said, they are more than adequate for web video conferences, Skype and other VoIP uses.
Great monitor but beware the marketing - does not daisy chain

Summary: As others have said, this monitor has a great display. The colors are vivid and the picture is clear with no ghosting. What bothered me is that the Asus marketing text for the product is deceptive: "DisplayPort connectivity transmits high-definition visuals to external displays that are superior to DVI and VGA ports, supporting multiple monitors on one cable so you can daisy-chain two or more together." This is flat out deceptive marketing.
