-The built-it speakers are terrible. -The screen and display are OK

Northking, Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: WARNING: This product is not Mac compatible, and Asus knows that. When I could not get the webcam to work, I called Asus tech support for assistance . Asus informed me that the webcam is not designed to work with Mac. I asked why it is not advertised that way (i.e., why is it not described as Windows only), Asus replied (astonishingly) "Why would we do that?" Big disappointment--severely damages Asus' credibility. Wecam issue aside: -The built-it speakers are terrible.

Product description says, "With a built-in 2 MP rotatable webcam, microphone, and speakers" - not true!

  • Summary: I like the monitor but very frustrating to find it does not include a microphone as was in the product description; required another purchase.

Okay, but not the best

Rob, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Display is good, but there is one stuck pixel almost dead center. Many hours of trying to unstick it to no avail. Also, I do not like the high gloss finish on the entire monitor, especially in front around the display itself...too many reflections. Much happier with my old Acer which has matte black finish. Will probably not buy Asus again for the finish and also the stuck pixel.

  • Summary: I returned it after being unable to load the webcam driver either from CD come in the box or from ASUS website. After installing from CD, I see a message 'latop only.' Hello??!!! The CD label says 'LCD monitor.' Went through ordeal calling a couple of lousy tech support and sending E-mails for solution-still unresolved. Duriing a call, a lady tells me my PC is infected with worm after she checks it by way of remote connection. Another Hello???!!!

  • Summary: The camera software does not work. I am still trying to get the camera to work with Windows 8. I use my monitor everyday an it looks great. Beside the camera I would recommend it to anyone.

Not for professional use

Glistener, B&H Photo
22 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I am a professional video and photo editor. The specs on this monitor looked decent, so I took a gamble. It would be a good (not great) monitor for nonprofessionals. I calibrated and still could not manage a decent color. The whites are not pure and the blacks crush. The viewing angle is adjustable and they do include a wire for hooking it up to both a PC and Mac (I used a Mac Pro). It was a very light monitor. Oh, and sharpness was not great. You get what you pay for.

B-, Overall A good monitor with one notable weakness

Morg, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: I liked this little monitor. I got it from Amazon Warehouse in original package. The screen quality was good and so was the Camera. Sadly I did not like the backlight bleeding around the bottom of the monitor, and also I have decided to go for a monitor with higher resolution instead.

Un bel écran avec une webcam sans micro!

Pascale, Darty
15 September 2014
  • Summary: L'intérêt principal de cet écran par rapport à la concurrence étant sa webcam, l'absence de micro intégré fait grandement chuter sa note. En dehors de ça, bonne qualité d'image. L'écran est un peu lourd. Il lui manque également un pied réglable mais ça on le sait quand on l'achète.

Gut aber für das Geld nicht gut genug

S. Müller, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: Design sehr ansprechend, auch die Anschlussmöglichkeiten sprechen für sich. Aber das Bild ist nicht so super für das was es heutzutage auf dem Markt gibt (3D etc.). Kann aber auch an dem 4 Jahre alten Laptop und dessen Grafikkarte gelegen haben, da wir nun mit unserem neuen HP ein deutlich besseres Bild haben. Neue Technologie funktioniert eben auch nur mit solcher.

Produit bon rapport qualité prix mais prob technique possible

Tenaka, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: Le produit offre un bon rapport qualité prix (taille d'écran sympathique, qualité d'affichage plutot bon le tout pour un prix correct). Par contre un problème technique semble être récurent : si vous avez eu droit à qq'un sur la chaine d'assemblage qui est professionnel, vous n'aurez aucun souci pour régler l'inclinaison de l'écran, par contre si ce n'est pas le cas, vous aurez droit à un pied réglé en inclinaison basse (votre écran regarde par terre), et le tout sera...
