Cannot recommend for MacBook Air user

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 April 2016
  • Summary: I rarely write reviews, but have to for this product. I am so disappointed. I am using MacBook Air (2015) hooked up the monitor with a mini-display to HDMI cable. Two major issues and why I cannot recommend this product if you are planning to use a MacBook Air.

Nice Monitor But Not Without Quirks

Peter O., Newegg
20 March 2016
  • Summary: I've seen other people on the internet with the same exact problem and no solution. If you buy this monitor, beware of it's pitfalls.
  • Pros: Clean looking, bright sharp colors, plethora of control options.
  • Cons: Whenever the computer sleeps, the auto detect continuously sounds the device connect and device disconnect every 4-5 seconds untill you wake the computer from sleep mode. It's enough to drive you crazy. I emailed Asus tech support and got some generic message: "Please check whether you are experi...

crapping out

Luke M., Newegg
11 April 2015
  • Pros: good image and features.
  • Cons: 10 months later, now starting to randomly black out. unplugging and plugging monitor back in fixes it though. extremely annoying at times. its one of three monitors that I have hooked up. The black outs only happen to this monitor and I saw other reviews that this happens to too, around this time...

Don't go to sleep

Seth R., Newegg
29 March 2015
  • Summary: Wishing I had bought a different brand/model.
  • Pros: It turns on, has no dead pixels, and the image is pretty good.
  • Cons: This monitor has something wrong with it when it goes to low power mode. I have it setup as the second monitor for a dual monitor setup. The old 24 inch ASUS monitor had NO problems. This one is literally ruining my computer. It seems to send the computer a signal that makes Windows constantly th...

Damaged upon delivery

Andrew S., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Pros: The monitor appears to be in working condition even though it was damaged during delivery or in the warehouse prior to delivery.
  • Cons: The box was damaged upon receipt of delivery. There was tape holding the box together where it had been dropped or crushed by something. The damage was thru the outer box and into the protective Styrofoam damaging the corner of the monitor. The monitor seems to be working however it is damaged. S...

Disappointing Defects

darryl l., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Summary: 2-eggs instead of 1 because I think this is an isolated issue with this individual monitor, rather than a brand issue. My other DVI version of this same monitor is great.
  • Pros: Physically looks identical to the DVI version of this monitor (which I own and like). No dead pixels.
  • Cons: 1st issue was a washed-out look; blacks were grey and overall it just looked desaturated. I played with settings to no avail. I found some comments online blaming the HDMI, saying that it is defaulting to RGB (correctly) but that the HDMI only works properly in CMYK mode. I switched this in my Nv...

DIsappointed

Sean B., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Summary: This is my second Asus monitor that I've had to send back to get one that was correct. Don't think I'll buy an Asus monitor ever again.
  • Pros: Once I dialed in the settings it looked ok. Great response rate.
  • Cons: As soon as I plugged in the monitor I noticed it looked super washed out compared to my old Asus monitor. It took a while to dial in the settings to get them to look decent. I noticed when I was playing a game and it called for almost all black and dark gray loading up that there was what looked ...
