Crystal clear picture, gamer bf loved it!

Sra, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend since he was using an old small TV monitor from early 2000s for gaming. I did a lot of research on Asus versus Benq, and in the end decided on the Asus because it was more reasonably priced and the picture looks way sharper. The The only thing I was worried about is that the Ben Q has a feature that eliminates eye fatigue while playing and I thought that was pretty cool. But not worth an extra $100 to $300.

Amazing Monitor with a few caveats.

Callan "Callan/!!\nallaC", Amazon

  • Summary: In one sentence I would say: Great monitor, gaming in 60+ fps adds so much to the games you already enjoy. Once I take a minute to think a bit harder about my experience: *Important note*: To get full resolution 1920x1080 @ above 60 you will need to use dual link DVI. The monitor comes with this cable, but you need to make sure you graphics card supports it as well. I first swapped out with my old monitor and used its HDMI cable with my brand new Asus.

Excellent gaming monitor

Stephen Sykes, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: I agree with the other positive reviewers, that this is an excellent gaming monitor. I'm running it off an EVGA GTX780 card with DVI input, and installation couldn't have been simpler. I selected the "standard" screen mode with neutral settings and then used the computer's nVidia driver to fine tune the color and performance.

I have experienced a great refresh rate

Rosarioj, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: Pros: I have experienced a great refresh rate. The colors are realistic. It rotates, in case I want to see the screen in portrait mode. Cons: I personally don't like that the buttons are on the bottom edge of the monitor. I would prefer them to be up front. Other Thoughts: The other monitor for my consideration was one from the company that many consider the best LCD manufacturer. This Asus has more features than anything from that company.

Great gaming monitor

Derek, Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: I got this as a part of my most recent gaming rig, and it took me awhile to warm up to it. I didn't truly appreciate the response time and refresh rate until I went back to using a 60hz 8ms monitor at a buddy's house. The difference is huge if you have a GPU powerful enough to push 144 fps on the games you want to play. It has its flaws.

Great display, awful setup and accessories.

Reid DeProspo, Amazon
1 September 2014
  • Summary: It's a great monitor, but a pain in the ass. The display is amazing and I have not noticed any flickers or dysfunctional pixels. On the other hand, the power input is such an enormous pain, it does not simply plug in and go. No, you have to wiggle it around for about 3 minutes before finding the one perfect spot where it doesn't just uncontrollably make an annoying shocking sound. Also this monitor VERY easily scratches.

User Review

Robert_T, NCIX.com
1 September 2014
  • Summary: Got mine from NCIX about 9 months ago. Brand new but had a stuck red pixel in the top right corner. Seems semi common with these but hard to be sure since the squeaky wheel always gets the grease. Don't hear much from people with smooth operation. I was very upset that it cost 400 and is marketed as a top of the line gaming monitor yet had a stuck pixel. I was extremely lucky because it must not have been stuck hard.
  • Pros: Super smooth motion. Mostly use it for iRacing and Counter-Strike.
  • Cons: Shipped brand new but with a stuck red pixel
