ASUS 27 inch LED Monitor - not that great

Ramin A., Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Ordered a couple of these and both have burnt out pixels in less than a year (I use them all day). Have used ASUS motherboards for years and they are reliable (even though not as well as supported as some more famous brands). However, ASUS monitors obviously are not that great (for example, my DELL 24" HD monitors (2407) are still kicking for 10 years and no burnt pixels yet with everyday use).

Besides this ridiculous flaw the screen itself is very wide and pleasing to the eyes with excellent viewing angles

Earle the Pearl, Amazon
26 October 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this monitor in September of '13 and about 3 months ago the monitor buttons DO NOT WORK. The only function of the buttons at this point is when the monitor is off I can press 'Menu' to turn the monitor. Mind you the 'Power' button does NOT turn the monitor on. I cannot switch inputs or access the monitor's GUI any longer. Any contact with ASUS' customer service has led me into a brick wall of frustration of trying to just explain what is and is not working.

  • 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.

Budget monitor with a budget picture quality

David B., Amazon
19 February 2014
  • 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.

Wanted to love it

T. Myers "TimmyTechTV", Amazon
14 August 2012
  • 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.
