Digital connections not working for me and brightness is very low

Summary: Looks like a great display on paper but it was a very different experience for me when I got it. Was planning to use it with my PS3 and Xbox 360 through HDMI but had to resort to Component and it even through that it looks horrible (Component HD can look great, just as good as HDMI if the display...
Pros: Very large, has built-in camera that works in both PS3 and PC, has a ton of input options, built-in speakers and a AUX-out option is much appreciated for using external speakers with your console
Cons: Maybe I was just unlucky but my display has issues with digital connections, it does not work. Connecting an HDMI or DVI device just shows nothing on the display and connecting through VGA or component, the brightness and color reproduction is very off compared to my other monitors.
Summary: If you are thinking of purchasing this monitor for your Windows 7 system, DON'T!!! The webcam on this monitor is incompatible with Windows 7. It works with XP and Vista, but NOT WINDOWS 7! ASUS doesn't plan to update the driver to solve that problem.
Summary: After receiving a new PC, I connected the ASUS Monitor to my Windows 7 OS and the WEB CAM would not operate. I called ASUS Tech Support and Tech stated to me that the Web Cam and its Software were NOT compatible with the Windows 7 Operating System and that there were no plans in updating the Drivers...
Summary: Generally this is a good monitor, with all the video input selection. Like the 5 buttons OSD, its much better than touch sensitive on Gateway HD2200 I previously own. I Found 1 dead pixel on my unit, which is annoying.
Summary: This monitor is made in China and shows its weakness when the picture is moving.(ie videos or TV). If you are not on a budget you might consider an upgrade. I tried all the settings from low to high. I even copied some online settings. This monitor is hard on the eyes. I ended up buying a Samsung!
Pros: Great for still pictures (photographs). Good for video games. But looses it on some maps.
Cons: Movies are not as crisp as compared to viewing on other monitors. Viewing TV through a USB pvr was terrible! I could only watch for a short time then would have to look away.
Can't Color correct - Don't try to save a few bucks and go get yourself an Ultra Sharp from Dell

Summary: I've always been a fan of Dell's UltraSharp line, I have a 25" UltraSharp from them right now, its great. It was about $120 more than the cost of this screen but, for me its worth it because it can hold a color (unlike this display).
Pros: Its large, and it would make a fine TV for someone who has a bright room.
Cons: If you do any sort of design, layout or video editing and you need close to acurate color and contrast, you need to stay away from this LCD. I used an "Eye-One" color calabrator on it, you can't get it anywhere close to correct. The black levels are way off, and white levels are ether washed out ...
This monitor is not for the discerning connaisseur
15 May 2009
Summary: Save your money, buy this when it's about half the price.... like 150-200 level, then it's worth the horrible quality picture. As for me, I am on the prowl for something much better
Pros: It's big.... and has a webcam.....
Cons: It's resolution and color/contrast/brightness control is horrible. I went from an 20.1 LCD monitor with a dot pitch of .24 to this piece of crud..... There is a difference For those who can't tell what good quality is, feel free to purchase this monitor. For those who can, keep looking because th...
Summary: i am an A+ certified technician with several years experience in the professional field and a hobby enthusiast with performance PC gaming and video. Im not being biased because i bought something i didnt know what i was getting or didn't know how to use, or simply thought i was getting more than i...
Pros: very large and beautifully colored screen, with sharp precision images, in other words no fuzziness of edges. all colors appear as they should in proper hue, and high contrasting colors such as white and black edges appear sharp without bleeding into one another. overall nearly a perfect picture,...
Cons: when tested on the standard VGA port a red hue was painted across the entire screen no matter the color being projected. no calibration of any kind could adjust it to fix it. in my opinion, the vga port simply is not an option for this unit, however its ok as an auxiliary port in case you dont ha...
