Pros: Although recurbisbed, this monitor this was great to find to match the one I already own. The price was great and it works like new.
Cons: I had to send the first one I ordered back, but when I encountered the same issue with the monitor they sent back I realized it was an issue that I needed to fix on my end with video settings. So for cons, nothing aside from my own mistake.
Summary: Wonderful monitor for the price. clear, sharp. You can watch movies (DVD's) with headphones and not lose any of the experience. The speakers are not overwhelming in sound quality but the picture is ASUS exceptional quality.
Summary: Very nice display. Crisp colors, good black ratio, and having built-in speakers is a handy feature. My only quibble is with the adjustment buttons. The input source selected is crammed right against the power switch and my wife kept pushing the wrong button and wondering why her computer wouldn't...
Summary: I bought this because it is "The Evo Monitor" used by fighting game players and organizers pretty ubiquitously. I had never thought about display lag in gaming before and definitely notice the difference between this and other monitors. Great for gaming but also for general use.
Pros: Extremely fast response time, great color and brightness options. Plenty of ports in the back for connecting multiple devices.
Cons: Hardly ever goes on sale and $200 is a little pricey even though it's so great.
