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.

Great monitor IF you get one that isn't defective.

Alexandru B., Newegg
9 September 2013
  • Summary: I've been buying ASUS's high end products consistently for 10 years and have never seen such atrocious quality control. If my next monitor does not show up in acceptable condition, I will return them all and purchase a competitive product from a local store where I can verify they're fine before I walk out.
  • Pros: Quality image, consistent black levels, very little backlight bleed - for a monitor this price and higher, physical buttons make it easier to set OSD.
  • Cons: First 2 showed up with blemishes inside the screen (on one) and bad pixels (on the other). I RMA'd them with Newegg. Second pair showed up - one monitor is fine, the other has a green stuck pixel in the middle/bottom of the screen. That's 3 out of 4 "bad." Unfortunately, Flexcode.org's bad pixel fix (tapping as well) wasn't able to do anything to get the pixel unstuck.

Ok Monitor. ASUS warranty not so great.

J. A. Perales "Tony", Amazon
15 December 2012
  • 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.

Are you feeling lucky?

christopher t., Newegg

  • Summary: Buy the extended warranty! Whomever is certifying the refurb status of this model needs more quality control. You will want that extended warranty period to ensure the "refurb" status is a solid one.
  • Pros: Nice display, great GTG speed. Vibrant color adjustments available, contrast/brightness is good too.
  • Cons: My refurb model had backlight flickering trouble from initial purchase. Issue has increased in frequency, causing me to call for RMA. Having issues getting RMA because neither the manufacturer nor the responsible party for these first 90-days are taking responsibility. (AKA, I'm getting the run-around). Hopefully the 1-year extended warranty purchase vendor will provide solid support.

Dead Pixel Out of the Box

Aaron G., Newegg
17 October 2012
  • Summary: I would not care so much if the monitor was not about 300 bucks with SH and everything. Do not want to send back since it is another $15-20 dollars just for a dead pixel. So in the end, the monitor would end up being 315-325 bucks. Sucks how you have to spend money on SH to send this thing back when it was their fault for a faulty product!!!
  • Pros: It is a great monitor I guess if you get one without a dead pixel. Been trying to run through pixel programs for a few hours and still pixel is not working. The thing is dead...
  • Cons: I just pulled it out of the box and it had a dead pixel. Apparently no pixel program is fixing it. Going to go ahead and leave programs on for a few hours but I should not have to deal with this with a brand new monitor. I really wish QA would do their job better. Second Asus monitor I have had with first being alright. Usually buy Acer since I have never had a dead pixel out of all 5 monitors from them. Sorry Asus, no more monitors will I buy from you. First MB issue...
