Summary: Great picture quality and the webcam video quality is good but the speakers are awful and it has no mic. The monitor also doesn't adjust upwards. It's very low to the base. Since you still need an external mic with this monitor and you'll probably want external speakers you might as well just get a regular monitor and stick a USB webcam on top. The webcam was picked up straight away by Windows 7 which installed the drivers automatically.
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.
Summary: I got this for a system I put together for my Sister, a barebones from Tiger Direct. Everything worked well except I couldn't figure out how to get the external speakers to work after hooking up the headphones. It seems you have to choose one or the other which I found to be a little annoying. Other than that, nice pic and satisfied.
Summary: Monitor does everything it advertises...EXCEPT.... Webcam does not work with Macbook. Computer does not see/recognize webcam for Facetime/Skype. No known fix/driver update for this after reading forums. Also, integrated speakers dont work if you already have other external speakers plugged into computer.
Summary: I am not a very technical person, so I do not know all the terms. But when I was watching movies with this monitor, the colors looked weird. It kinda looked like it was smudged? I don't know. But I did not think that I got a defected one, so I kept it. Also, the quality of speaker is pretty much bad. I know that I cannot expect an awesome sound from a monitor speaker, but it's way too bad in my opinion. When the sound goes up just a little bit, it makes weird noises.
Summary: Wonderful monitor overall, good picture, good price for the feature set, meets all expectations except for one. The description of the monitor states that the webcam may be rotated, so that a user may adjust their camera angle. There is also a promotional photo further down, under Advanced Connectivity, showing the camera tilted upward.
