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.
Summary: I recently bought a new macbook pro to use to do some graphics work, and so I bought this monitor to use with it. The thing that attracted me to the monitor was the fact that it was one of the very few monitors that offered a displayport input. After getting it set up with my macbook and using it abit, I'm pretty happy with it. For someone attempting to do the same, what you need is a displayport to displayport mini cable. Then it's just plug-and-play.
Summary: Over four months in and no dead pixels. I was coming from a 26 inch PVA panel HDTV using it as a monitor and I felt that 26 inches was a little too big on the desktop. I am enjoying the 25-inch size and the 1080p resolution and think I could maybe even go down to a 24-inch LCD with no problem.
Summary: This Asus LED image is Quality and I am very pleased with it so far. Have been using it for three weeks and love it. Should have bought the 27"though. I think The Asus is nicer than my high dollar HP.
Summary: I bought this monitor for work. I test various computer components and needed all of the different inputs possible. This monitor has them all! Picture is crisp! PROS: - lots of different inputs to choose from - very well packaged - very crisp picture - self-adjusts when switching between sources CONS: - It isn't at home! WISH LIST: - Menu highlighting would blink to indicate selected. When the menu selection is only 2 items. How do you tell which one is selected?
Excerpt: Цена несколько завышена, в основном за счет наличия динамиков, которые не особо нужны, а другие функции, которые могут быть полезными, вроде USB, возможности регулировать по высоте, отсутствуют. Брал за 11200. В целом хороший монитор с TN матрицей.
Pros: Дизайн. Размер. 25 дюймовых конкурентов можно сказать, что нет. Яркий, контрастный. Реалистичный черный, белый. Насыщенные цвета. Переключения цветовых режимов одной кнопкой. Различные способы подключения: D-sub, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort.
Cons: Не очень реалистичные цвета, особенно заметно на резковатых градиентах. Неудобно настраивать цветопередачу, не все пресеты можно редактировать. Заметны изменения изображения под различными углами обзора, хотя для TN матрицы не критично.
