subtle flickering

rachel, Amazon
6 October 2010
  • Summary: This monitor flickered subtly -- it was hard to see except when I displayed something with dark colors, but it was enough to give me an awful headache. I tried to find a better driver, but the ASUS site didn't offer any kind of driver support.

Excellent Monitor... Until it Died a Year Later

N. George, Amazon
31 August 2010
  • Summary: This was an excellent monitor, that I used daily for over a year. Great picture, great look, and overall good quality. UNTIL... You may have heard in other reviews about the "flickering gray screen of death". That is exactly what happened to mine, unexpectedly last week.

User Review

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,...

  • Summary: This monitor has failed twice on me in 11 months, once for a flickering grey screen and now it's not getting a signal. Just a heads up may want to go for another model it's $27 smackers to send it back for repair everytime for shipping.

Gray Flickering Screen

Computer Guy, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought two of these monitors for a video editing machine. One died yesterday, giving me only a gray flickering screen. I checked the monitor with HDMI cable and on two other computers. The problem is with the monitor. I have had them less than 5 months and one is dead.

***BEWARE!*** The flickering gray screen of death...

M. Hennessay, Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: Purchased this monitor via Amazon in June, six months later it flickers gray constantly and clears up after a good (10) hit(s) on the back of it. I get to do this about every 5-10 minutes, and it's getting worse.

Sucks

W. Lee, Amazon
26 October 2009
  • Summary: I got it in 8/09 and after 2 months it restarts by itself. Sometimes it will just not function, power switch does not work etc. I had to unplug the power cord. I called Asus and have to send it back on my dime. This is really bad service.

Similar to other reviews here, worked for two months then died

Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: Well, it was great while it worked, then it up and died after two months. The only option I have is to send it back to Asus to have it repaired, which is what I have opted to do. I have no idea what will be returned to me.
