Built-in webcam w/o mic. Really? It should have called video-only cam not webcam. Other functions work fine, so far.

Summary: It works fine except that even this model with built-in webcam w/o microphone. Really? What were they thinking? They should have said video only cam, not webcam. As I thought of ASUS highly in the past, this series of events. I had to return and purchase this with Amazon's excellent handling though it took a call to a very proficient agent who recognize loyal client and responded accordingly. I have already used my chip on that step.
This Monitor is full HD and works excellent, very nice image so easy to assemble it ...

Summary: This Monitor is full HD and works excellent, very nice image so easy to assemble it and connect it. The only one thing is that the program in the DVD that came with it for the Camera function, I don't even know why my antivirus detect it as Trojan virus and malware. I want to think that my Kaspersky antivirus is exaggerating however I do not plan to use the Camera so the Monitor and speakers work excellent that's all I need.
Summary: Overall I liked the monitor. What I did not like was the setup procedure for the built in webcam. When trying to load the webcam information it would not load. I spent days trying to figure out why. The small CD that came with the webcam did not cover both bits needed - contained only one. One was instructed to download a certain driver - don't mess with drivers unless you know what you are doing. I felt the CD to load should have covered both - not just one.
Summary: got this for my 15 year old son to use with his aileanware desktop computer because his old monitor refresh rate left his games lagging. although he dosent use the video camera he is very happy with the screen. great size not too big but better than average image and size .he uses it almost exclusively for gaming and gives it a 5 of 5. as a dad im very glad I got this ( the right one ) for him.
Summary: Supper high quality on the screen. The web cam isn't too bad. Not amazing pixels but that's ok. I was hesitant about the speakers but they actually surprised me. Not bad quality. Not exactly surround sound either but they work great for listening to music to in the room.
Summary: Shame on me for not reading more carefully but for gosh sake.... no mic. Really? Why in the world would they not put a mic with this thing. I am floored...bad and shame on me for not knowing but shame on them for charging so much and not having a mic.
