Big viewing area, inexpensive, poor color, seems well built, easy to use.
2 September 2012
Summary: I had no prior experience with Asus monitors, and bought this on the recommendation of friends. It's a big viewing area, and it almost eliminates my need for two monitors. However, the color quality is very inferior to monitors I've had in the past. There's no way to fine-tune the white point, or the color balance. It has rich blacks, but the gradation in tones is limited. I need to use a different monitor for graphics if color is at all important.
Summary: I'm using it as a secondary monitor on my MacBookPro. It's not the best monitor in the world, but it's VERY affordable --and if you hook it up using the proper digital cabling it'll give you a decent picture. However, I was unable to create an accurate color profile on this display. The black to white contrast ratio is subpar. Luckily, for the purposes I'm using it for, color accuracy is not required. If you want or need a monitor that renders decent colors, forget this.
