Nice monitor but quality ruined by 3 stuck pixels

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I don't know why anyone would pay extra money for a monitor with stuck pixels, no
  • Pros: - The 144Hz feature looks nice but not with 3 green specks on the screen - probably the only good thing about this monitor
  • Cons: - Monitor shipped with 3 dead pixels that did not work themselves out - All three are a green color and show clearly on a dark screen - seeing as how this is a recurring problem, asus needs to step up their game big time

Product blatantly lies to your face

Nicholas D., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Do not buy this monitor! You can get the same 1080p tech at much better pricepoints from companies that will not lie to your face. Also if you want g-sync... this monitor does not have it and can never have it installed as the part is discontinued. It is NOT g-sync "ready".
  • Pros: 1080p, great response time, great fps, nice adjustable stand.
  • Cons: Says clearly on the box it is "g-sync ready". What it actually means is that "If you buy a $200 part which requires taking apart your entire monitor, removing 3 electric tapes, unplugging your video and audio internal cords, remove your existing board, throw it away (because what are you going to...

Defective Monitor - Bad Power Supply?

John L., Newegg
5 January 2016
  • Summary: I am extremely disappointed. I had received this as my gift for Christmas from my girlfriend and I was relying on this for schoolwork. Not only that, but I threw out the box as it was taking up a lot of space and I live in a small room for school and now have no way of returning this product since I...
  • Pros: The monitor looked amazing and it was easy to set-up with convenient tilting/pivoting that I haven't seen before. I thoroughly was impressed.
  • Cons: Only THREE days after using this monitor, I came home after work and it would not turn on. I thought possibly the outlet in the wall was faulty, or there was a loose connection. I tried different power cords and outlets and other obvious possible fixes (in addition to ensuring 120V in the wall ou...

Was a great monitor. Now bun-in.

Matthew S., Newegg
4 January 2016
  • Summary: As much as I love ASUS products I had to give one egg. I was hoping to have this monitor for at least three years. Also, I'm not looking to RMA (not even sure I can after [over] a year) and being this monitor is no longer made I doubt I could.
  • Pros: Fantastic GTG Great contrast ratio Loads of great settings
  • Cons: Minor issue: Early on when I got this monitor I had a problem with the power button. It would turn the monitor off but it smetimes wouldn't turn the monitor on. I don't know if it was a problem with the monitor itself or the video card not sending the right signal (yes, I'm not very technical) bu...

Terrible product! 2 have broken on me in 3 months time.

Patrick F., Newegg
27 December 2015
  • Summary: To tell you my story, I got one for my birthday (10/18/2015). It had a stuck pixel show up and I returned it (10/25/2015) to the store. I bought another monitor online (10/25/2015) and it had a stuck pixel appear in early December. Now the DisplayPort has gone out on the monitor!
  • Pros: - 144hz - Bright
  • Cons: - Color Sucks - Stuck Pixels (I've owned 2 different panels and it has happened to both) - Monitor Stand isn't the greatest. It takes forever to get the monitor level. - DisplayPort died on one of them -

The greatest, before they ruined them.

shirley l., Newegg
26 December 2015
  • Summary: I would only recommend it if you could find one manufactured in 2013.
  • Pros: I bought 3 of them in 2013. They were gorgeous, had fantastic colors, and 144hz was spectacular.
  • Cons: One day in early 2015 my sister cracked one. When I ordered a replacement it was tinted yellow! I RMA'd it figuring it was broken. when I received my second replacement it was also tinted yellow! They must have changed something in manufacturing to cause it because other people also complained ab...

Sadly, I expect all of them to have Dead Pixels

Brandy T., Newegg
23 December 2015
  • Summary: I expect anyone who ordered this monitor on Cyber Monday most likely got a defective monitor. I sent it back to Newegg for an exchange (expecting the same model but a new one without a dead pixel).
  • Pros: 144hz monitors are always great
  • Cons: Monitor was shipped to me as a Cyber Monday deal for $209.99. It arrived with a dead pixel smack dab right in the middle of the screen.

Huge upgrade from an HP2311x, however it came with 3 dead pixels.

Joseph S., Newegg
20 December 2015
  • Summary: Other than the dead pixels, the monitor would be a 5 egg rating automatically because I really liked it. Hopefully the new replacement will solve this problem and by then I will change the rating to a 5.
  • Pros: Excellent display, very good contrast ratios and color reproduction (once you tune it with an ICC profile and with the manual settings). Everything is easier to see in games, especially in fast paced games like Battlefield 4 you can quickly spot an enemy and react quickly. Everything moves smooth...
  • Cons: Unfortunately not everything was perfect. While browsing a page like facebook, I noticed a small dot in the left mid section of the screen, which seems to look like a speck of dust, I wipe it and it didn't come off. I run a dead pixel test and find two more of what appears to be a total of 3 dead...

Extremely frustrated by Newgg

Derrick C., Newegg
16 December 2015
  • Summary: It would be great if I could just get a working model instead of a refund...
  • Pros: Great monitor overall. Had a dead pixel and had to return it though
  • Cons: When I returned it I had asked for a replacement but Newegg decided to give me a refund instead. The refund amount isn't even enough to buy a new one. If I had known they would pull a cheap move like this I would've never sent the monitor in. Extremely frustrated on why Newegg would do this.

Ditch the TN

Brandon P., Newegg
8 December 2015
  • Summary: Buy an IPS and see what you've been missing out on...you'll be blown away by vibrancy of the colors compared to TN's. I can't even stand to look at my old TN now...it looks so dull in comparison
  • Pros: Response time...really won't see that much of a difference over a 5 ms monitor though
  • Cons: TN
