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, about 10% of the time the screen won't show anything when I press a key or move the mouse. I didn't have this problem with any of my previous monitors on the same PC.

Failed twice in 11 months

  • 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.

Sucks

  • 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

  • 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. Perhaps another one that dies in two months or maybe one that works forever, who knows? But with the hassle of buying a box, packing it up and sending it at my own expense back to ASUS, it's really not worth the hassle.

ASUS 24 inch lcd monitor = joke

Amazon
6 October 2009
  • Summary: I echo "Reviewer's" comments. Worked for a month and then died. No picture, only grey static. Monitor controls were completely unresponsive. ASUS support also unresponsive; tried to blame it on a brand new Dell CPU. The adage "you get what you pay for" applies to ASUS (purveyor of cheap junk).
