Incredible monitor!

Amazon Customer "A speculative fiction writer..., Amazon
19 July 2013
  • Summary: I'd been avoiding getting a new monitor because I just did not like LCD technology as compared with top-line CRT... This monitor finally combined all the right technologies of LCD monitors to convince me to buy... Just in time, too, because it wasn't much later when my old CRT's finally died.

Killer Deal On A Killer Monitor

  • Summary: This is probably the best monitor you can buy for the cost. Nothing was wrong with it and it runs 120hz like a straight beast.

pretty good monitor

cro, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all what happened to monitors over the last 10 years? We have processors and SSD's that are hundreds of times faster and cost nearly the same as a comparable item 10 years ago. Why is it we've gone in reverse in the monitor/display field? CRT's that pushed as high if not higher resolutions than current LCD's with better color and refresh rates were cheaper, made better, and lasted longer than any of the trash out there now.

A supurb monitor with a massive flaw.

KMX Sales, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I love, buy and use everything Asus. No doubt about it, this is a top-notch monitor. And like a lot of people I had little intention of using it for 3D. There's a lot I have to agree with on all the positive reviews, however... 1. The screen on the VG236 is obscenely glossy. I knew this coming in, but the "Color Shine Technology" might as well be called "Mirror Technology," it simply murdered my eyes just browsing the net.

Great Monitor!!!

Dale Alexander, Amazon
27 February 2012
  • Summary: This monitor is absolutely breathtaking.Once configured to your taste you will fall in love, hell I fell in love before I even turned it on.All games and videos run silky smooth and the monitor itself is well built.I've had no problems with any dead or stuck pixels either.Now I didn't buy it specifically for 3d, but rather the 120hz refresh rate and it is an experience like no other.The 3d aspect I'll dive into sometime in the future but for right now, this is all I...

Never going back.

JR, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: As soon as you get this thing, and switch that refresh rate up, there is no going back to 60hz. Just doing normal desktop work is so much smoother, and gaming -- gaming is incredible. I was going to go with an IPS, but as someone who enjoys games, and also is fairly sensitive to framerates, I decided to go 120hz -- and I'm glad I did. Now there is a downside or two to this specific monitor.

Flawless Monitor--Fluid Performance!

John, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: Let me preface by saying I do not and will not EVER use this monitor for 3D. I am not into that--it gives me headaches and causes sensory overload. I bought this monitor to receive a more "fluid" experience navigating Windows and playing FPS's (mainly bought it for BF3 release). Let me tell you...you WILL notice a difference between 60Hz and 120Hz. The people who claim, "The human eye can't keep up with a higher refresh rate than 60Hz" are pulling your leg.

Quality control leaves alot to be desired.

Scott, Amazon
12 September 2011
  • Summary: The Asus VG236HE is a pretty decent monitor out of the current 120hz monitors out at the moment. I'm currently going on my third one in the last two months. Waiting on Asus to respond to my RMA request. First one I recived had a bunch of dead pixels and horrid backlight bleeding. The second one had pretty bad color uniformity. The top and bottom were alot brighter than the center of the screen, but it wasn't bad enough to return.

Beautiful picture but...

Brian D. Allen, Amazon
29 August 2011
  • Summary: As with most people, I purchased this monitor without consideration of it's 3D capabilities. I only cared for the 120Hz refresh, something unseen in most available monitors. I LOVE the ASUS brand and have no complaints up until now. Approximately one month of owning this beauty, I now have a vertical line of dead pixels. :( This probably won't be the stopping point for me. I am going to RMA it immediately and get it replaced.
