Update on Warranty Repair

Mark L., Newegg
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Definitely like the monitor performance. Disappointed about the hardware failure, but Asus service did the repair to my satisfaction.
  • Pros: This is an update of a previous review. HDMI display port went out on my a few weeks ago after less than a year of ownership. Asus website "live" chat person issued RMA in first session with them. Mailing back and forth was simple via FedEx. Problem was fixed by replacing bad part. Their packing ...
  • Cons: Shipping took almost a week in travel each way, and a week at repair center. FedEx tried to deliver while I was away from home, and it was a little convoluted figuring out where they were holding my monitor, but that was straightened out after a couple of days. Fortunately I had my (smaller) old ...

Change brightness & color temp

Joseph V., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Summary: If you own this display and dislike the light level/brightness and have AMD Catalyst Control Center you owe it to yourself to Open it>My VGA Displays>Display Color>Color Temperature Control / Brightness Changing the temperature to +7,000 makes this SO MUCH BETTER in a dark room.
  • Pros: Great monitor, love it.
  • Cons: Light bleed around borders docks 1 egg.

I really like the size and image quality of the monitor

Don Winn, Amazon
20 June 2012
  • Summary: I really like the size and image quality of the monitor,which would rate a 5 star review, however the built in speakers are very poor and I ended using separate external speakers instead. Ideally, It would be a great space saver to be able to use the built in speakers.

Great monitor for the price.

Brett M., Amazon
20 June 2012
  • Summary: I've had this monitor for a couple years now and it's still running strong. One pet peeve I have is that the webcam DOES NOT work on Mac's. I've tried multiple programs in attempts to get it to work but nothing seems to work. I've booted into Windows on my Mac and it works fine.

Would be better if it worked with Mac Facetime

Rocky Burger, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: There's no driver to integrate this monitor with Mac OS X Mountain Lion. I'm running a Mac Mini, but I don't like the glossy screen that Apple makes. This one would be perfect if the webcam could integrate with Mac.

Big picture

Voodoo48, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: I love everything about this monitor except for two things...The screen is in a fixed position that is lower than I would like and the controls are not simplistic to use...On the other hand, it is so big and the factory settings are so good that it nearly negates both problems..

Great Monitor

Kevin, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: So I have had this monitor for a few days now. I used it on a new build that I just finished. My other computer has an that I purchased new a few years ago for around $40 cheaper than this monitor. So far I have had zero problems with either Asus monitor. This one is a beast at 27 inches.

Good value

Josh, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Product was accurate to description and photos, picture and contrast is nice and overall a good buy for the price. Complaints: The stand had to be "broken in," as the joint allowing the monitor to tilt was locked tight and not adjustable by hand as described, but required a heavy whack with a...
