No Microphone

Terry D. Raley, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: This monitor was and still is advertised as having a webcam, speakers and a microphone. I have tried every method to activate the mic to no avail.Even ASUS techs couldn't tell me for sure if it had a microphone?? The webcam is excellent, very high quality picture. I just can't imagine a monitor with a webcam and no microphone???

Built-in webcam has no microphone

Frank, Amazon

  • Summary: Good price, nice picture. However, very dissapointed that it is advertised with a built-n HD webcam for all you video conferencing needs, but the webcam doesn't have a built-in microphone like 99% of webcams on the market today.

An OK monitor with a good warranty but be aware there is no mic and no DisplayPort input

  • Summary: I purchased this monitor about a year ago for someone who wanted a monitor with an integral webcam. I've run into two issues: 1. As others have said, there is no microphone. Really odd and I must admit that it never occurred to me to research this. I assumed that if there was a camera there would also be a mic. Just goes to show you the danger of assumptions. 2. More recently, I decided to try to use the monitor as a second monitor for an iMac.

  • Summary: I bought this monitor because of the webcam on it. I thought it had a microphone in the built-in webcam, but it doesn't have the microphone. This is my disappointment unfortunately. It is easy to install, just plug and play. I have installed on my daughter's computer which has an OS Windows XP and works perfect. Also, the speakers are no use, the volume in 100% is way too low. It is better not to use the speakers.

  • Summary: When I bought this product, all of the reviews that I read here were favorable, but there is some problems with the monitor. I bought the product because I was interested in the picture, but also, because it had speakers and a cam. The speakers work, but, at full volume, you can barely hear anything, so if you are buying this monitor because it has speakers, then, don't do it because it is not worth it.

Had to send it back.

  • Summary: Dead on arrival. Design-wise the specs are decent and the price is good. Its compact but definitely high enough resolution for serious power user multitasking. Too bad I had to send mine back.

Camera but no mic

  • Summary: Monitor is fine except for the fact that it has a built in camera.....but no mic. What good is the camera without a mic?

Nice monitor but lacks a few things

Don Rovin, Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Have had this monitor now for one week. Usual rapid amazon delivery via Amazon Prime. I was looking for a 21 - 22 inch monitor and had been looking at the Samsung ones when I came across this monitor described as a multimedia monitor - on the Asus website it describes it as enabling the purchaser "to have live conversations with one friends".
