Summary: I really loved this monitor up until the issue appeared.
Pros: A solid monitor with a sharp picture. Menu layout isn't fantastic, but that's only a minor drawback.
Cons: After about 14 or 15 months the monitor developed a sort of green wavy flickering on the right side of the display. Occasionally comes and goes, but also shows even when the monitor is receiving no input.
Nice monitor for the price, but major issues connecting to a Mac

Summary: If you're thinking about connecting this to a Mac, do your research first. I have a new 2013 Mac Mini, and connected this Asus using an Apple HDMI cable. Every time the Mac went to sleep, the monitor would lose connection to the Mac and display a NO HDMI SIGNAL.
Summary: For the price I payed 130$ this was a great deal. The monitor has presets that each save their own settings, cool. the contrast is strong with this monitor so much so infact that most of the times colors seem too saturated at times.
Summary: Bought this at $100 and for that price - Yeah this is good stuff. The speakers are top mounted and mildly tilted away from you, so it will spread the sound all over the place. It should be positioned against a wall unless you want whoever is on the backside to hear better than you what's going on.
Summary: I enjoyed using this monitor,and pleased with other ASUS products, I have been using another monitor. The 'waves' are in fact annoying. I agree with Charles T, I gave it a 3/5 for this wave issue.
Pros: I really liked the monitor Always good to have speakers Slick look
Cons: I was very pleased with the monitor when i recieved it, and was working fine for about 10 months. Yesterday when I came back and woke up my computer, i noticed green waves on the left side(Very similar to Charles T below). Obviously I am past the 30 rma aswell. Ive tried different cables and diff...
Summary: Gave it a 3/5 for the 'green wave' issue, would have been 5 egg's if this had not developed. Otherwise a great monitor. Happy to re-review if I can get this fixed.
Pros: Awesome picture Nice design Features Size Price
Cons: Worked great for about 7 months now. Tonight, after tending to laundry, I sat down and noticed these green 'waves' flowing on the left side of the screen. Or as another person posted 'green gradient'. I'm a bit bummed about this because I'm way past the 30 day return and the green is really, real...
Summary: I bought two of these Monitors, and everything is great. But there is one Dead Pixel on both monitors. I contacted Customer support, but was informed that they were not protected under the Warranty, due to not meeting the minimum of dead pixels in order for it to be.
