Summary: Watch out for the description, this monitor cannot be "daisy chained". I was looking forward to "daisy chaining" this monitor via my display port; however, after a call with Asus my concerns were validated. Per Asus, this monitor cannot be daisy chained.
Summary: Monitor is extremely bright, reduced brightness to zero, still cannot be used for programming; after half hour I have pain in my eyes. I have to stare at this monitor for 10 hours a day, it will have to be returned. Maybe good for gaming or watching movies but definitely not for computer programming, even TV content is all to bright. Does anybody else has the same issue or is this a faulty unit?
Pros: Great size monitor, easy menu system, good connectivity with 2 HDMI and one D-SUB
Cons: Extremely bright, cannot be reduced enough; stand too low.
Summary: I returned this monitor because I wasn't happy with the picture quality, but it would probably be ok for casual browsing or office work. Anyone who wants great quality for gaming, movies or photos should probably get something else. On the positive side, it's big and bright. Very bright. You'll probably want to turn down the brightness to avoid eye strain (if you're not in a well lit room.) Here are the problems: - Inaccurate color.
Summary: The monitor is large, and looks really beautiful. The screen is great, stand seemed sturdy enough, and I could adjust the viewing angle better than other monitors I've had. The reason that I gave this item 2 stars is I noticed a dead pixel towards the bottom of the monitor right away. A day or so later I noticed another smaller one. I contacted ASUS customer service and was told that 5 or less dark dots is acceptable for a new LCD monitor.
Summary: So, I will start this review out by saying I wanted to love this monitor. I own ASUS motherboards and graphics cards, and would buy them again in a heartbeat. Sadly to say however, this monitor, while HUGE and good looking when OFF, has several major flaws IMHO. 1. Black level is HORRIBLE! No matter how much I adjusted the settings (which are a pain in the you know what) you can never get rid of this horrible green hue to any blacks. 2. Base is not height adjustable.
