Received RMA Replacement is a JOKE.

Erika C., Newegg
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I guess it's great that I was even able to get a replacement. But still, to get something back that looks like a dog has been chewing on it, received in such sloppy packaging... it just boggles me.
  • Pros: Very pretty. And it's big.
  • Cons: Did a "fade to white" from bottom to top one day while using it. Returned for RMA in otherwise pristine condition, carefully packed in original retail packaging. Received "replacement" that was beat up, scuffed, and covered in fingerprints and red lint, and packed poorly in bubble wrap.

Don't buy, doesn't last

Vivian F., Newegg
16 March 2013
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: You get what you pay for. I bought 2 of these in Feb of 2012. Had to send them both back within2 months to Asus to be fixed as they suddenly stopped working. So guess what I found when I sat down at my desk this evening...yep mine has died again, just over 1 month past the original purchase date....

Broken monitor and poor customer service

Todd L., Newegg
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Spoke to night manager Dwayne at ASUS to complain about stand issue and was informed there was nothing he could do. Never mind I have been without a monitor for over a month, and now I will have to wait another week or two for the stand.
  • Pros: Good graphics, easy set up
  • Cons: Monitor broke (went black) within a week, so had to send it in for repair (I paid shipping). Got the monitor back minus the stand 3 weeks later, so I called ASUS to inquire and was informed that the stand is considered an accessory. So I would have to pay a seperate shipping charge to get stand b...

Skip this one

Spencer W., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I though with all the good reviews, this would be worth taking a chance on. I was wrong. Even after calibrating, colors were all wrong. Either completely washed out, or over saturated. Even for a TN panel, this thing looks horrible. Used multiple computers and cables.
  • Pros: None. It may have some nice features, but if you can't stand to look at it, then it ultimately is a failure, no?
  • Cons: Colors are way off. Picture isn't sharp at all. Text looks HORRIBLE.

Horrible tearing with motion

Sam W., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Pros: Very little bleed through for a LCD monitor
  • Cons: Can't stand looking at this monitor with any type of motion. Watching any type of video or even slightly scrolling produces huge amounts of tearing and ghosting. Games are total nightmare. Owned many different monitors, this is the first ASUS and i'm disappointed, but I think it might be a bad on...

Walmart
22 July 2010
  • Summary: Problem #1 was my own fault. I mis-read the resolution as 1920x1200 but it was only 1920x1080. Problem #2: It is much harder to read anything on it compared to my previous 22" monitor (A Synaps that I also bought at WalMart) Problem #3: When the screen blanks due to the screen saver turning on,...
