Summary: Our office got these monitors after an equipment refresh to replace the older 17 inch monitor and laptop in a docking station we were using. Unfortunately we don't utilize the HDMI cables so we are relegated to using the DVI cable that comes with the monitor. Although maybe not as good as using HDMI cables, this monitor still has nice color and contrast and works great with my laptop and docking station and connected with no issues.
Very nice product, but could use workable speaker for skype.

Summary: I bought this item to go along with a new computer. It has a built in camera, which saves me the trouble of hooking one up. The only problem I have is the Hd port from monitor to computer does not work, so I am unable to speak on skype without headphones. If I knew I would have camera only with no voice, I would have opted for possible larger screen and added the camera with the speakers.
Excerpt: I recommended this to my neighbor, who bought a new Mac mini to replace his aging iMac, particularly for the integrated WebCam. In general I'm pleased with it, the camera works with the built in drivers of the Mac, but the camera is missing a microphone. Luckily I had one I could give him. Also the screen doesn't adjust up and down. Because of those two shortcomings, I only gave it four stars.
Summary: There are other monitors that look as good or better at 24", but I haven't found any that look this good AND have a built in webcam. I would've bought a different monitor had I known this webcam would be mostly useless.
Pros: Great monitor for the price. The colors are sharp and make my old Hanns G look washed out. No ghosting or motion blurring. Built in webcam.
Cons: NO MIC! What's the point of the camera without a mic? I should've read more reviews, but when I saw the webcam on it I ASSUMED there would be a mic. A mistake on my part, but an even bigger mistake on the part of ASUS leaving out a mic. I won't be returning it, but I won't be recommending it to friends.
Summary: Perfect size, good definition nice built in camera and decent speakers. If anything is to be critisized this is the speakers. They tremble on loud performance and one can tell the difference with good speakers when playing music. They are fair for most uses, but in my opinion have stolen one star from a magnificent monitor.
Summary: I used to have an all-in one computer for my office and switched to a desktop with monitor. I love this one as it has the built in camera and screen size I need, only issue is that is does not have a built in mic.
