Died Right After Manufacturer Warranty Had Expired

Paul E., Newegg
2 March 2016
  • Summary: I'm filling this review out now because I am finally looking to get a new monitor and because of this past experience I'm having a hard time deciding if I'd buy Asus again based on quality because they do seem to sell more affordable products.
  • Pros: Screen Size. No dead pixels. Decent price at the time.
  • Cons: This monitor died right around when the manufacturer warranty expired. It would have cost more to replace than just to buy new... It turned off about 1 second after I repeatedly tried turning it back on. I imagine it was the LCD's inverter or capacitors that went bad as others with the same sympt...

  • Summary: Try to find software for webcam! The webcam should work with normal software. I've gotten no help from ASUS. There download sites seem to always on the blink. Don't count on long term support of function for this monitor! Beware!

21 November 2010
  • Pros: Decent picture and features
  • Cons: Webcam: software doesn't work (says that "Lifeframe2 runs on Asus Laptops only"). Also has NO MICROPHONE so even if the software worked the webcam is useless unless you just want to look at yourself on screen

Monitor failed just after 30 days

Peter K., Newegg
4 December 2009
  • Pros: Has built in web cam
  • Cons: Monitor failed after 30 days. Loose connection internally that produces a blue vertical line. Grabbing top right side of monitor and adjusting tilt flexes the display enough to temporarily correct the issue. Display contrast and brightness does not compare to my 2 year old HP LP2465. Display alwa...

Software doesn't work; no microphone

Kindle Customer, Amazon
10 April 2009
  • Summary: This is OK as a display only. However, I bought it mostly for the in-built webcam. It is useless because there is either no built in microphone (or if there is one it doesn't work), and the software supplied for the webcam doesn't work either (it gives a message "Lifeframe works on Asus laptops...
