Great monitor at a decent price

Mark, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Absolutely love it. I have 2 of these monitors (Owned the first one for about 7 months now and just purchased a second) and the display is awesome. If there was a complaint it would be that the stand only allows you to tilt the screen. The height is fixed. Not a problem if you can get it the way you want it. Outside of that I have only praise for these monitors.

1080P at it's best

Anonymous, Newegg
14 July 2014
  • Summary: With a $30 rebate the price on this panel was a steal and worth the better panel than TN. Though you can save a bit more with TN panel the difference between it and an AMVA+_shows.
  • Pros: AMVA+ with ASUS VividPixel brings 1080p to higher standard then average TN panel. Viewing angle is better. Came without any back light bleed and no white or black dot. All pixels were perfect.
  • Cons: 5ms game play actually not bad at all and worse than TN panel because the colors are more vivid IMO.

Ok for the price

  • Summary: The monitor did arrive with one or two dark pixels which was a disappointment as I do a lot of photo editing and bad pixels make it more difficult. Maybe I have just been lucky, but this is the first of several digital monitors I have had which came with a bad pixel. It also does not come with a manual, just a very basic setup diagram in multiple languages, but no spec sheet, etc.

Needs better Quality Control

Anonymous, Newegg
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall I am very happy with the monitors. I just wish I didn't have to replace 2 out of the 3 that I have purchased to get non-defective products.
  • Pros: The monitor has a great picture and the thin bezel looks great in the multi-monitor setup I am using. The stand is awesome.
  • Cons: I got two of these for work a couple weeks ago and one of them arrived with a stuck pixel. After getting a replacment, everything was great. I decided to order one for my home as well. It arrived yesterday and it had a dead sub-pixel (blue). I am in the process of getting it replaced and hope that the replacement unit isn't defective as well.

Impressive for the price

  • Excerpt: I use this monitor as an extension to my laptop. I needed something that didn't have that washed out, filmed over, look to it. This display has impressed me for the price. Set up was easy, 5 minutes tops. It is large, and crisp. I would recommend to a friends vs spending $+ depending on your needs.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use

Perfect Monitor

Trace, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: This monitor is perfect for what I need. I'm a gamer, and I also do a bit of programming, and this monitor is exactly what I need for both. It has great colors and great response time, but it can also go into portrait mode to display long lines of code while programming. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great display at an unbeatable price.

  • Pros: Looks good thin bezel Came with a lot of cables
  • Cons: DOA so of course I can't really comment on performance but the only con I had before was limited connections no DVI or 2 HDMI just one HDMI and one display the VGA is a joke

a bit disappoint

sik h chan, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: Consider the price is under $300 for a decent 27" monitor, I gave it 3 stars. The control buttons design is horrible, they are at the back and far apart, no manual. There is no "Auto adjust" setting and most of the manual adjustment features are not available like (V-size, H-size, V-position...etc). It has a speaker cable and volumn control but the monitor has no speaker. The only reason I pick this monitor is because I can adjust the height and turn side to side easily.

Avoid this monitor! Dead Pixels and Scratches. No Quality Control.

Adam B., Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: EDIT (UPDATED 6/2/2014) Pros - I absolutely love the design of this Asus monitor. The outer bezel is very thin and aesthetically pleasing. The stand that came with it is very sturdy although I immediately removed it to mount it on my monitor stand. Picture is awesome! CONS I ordered 2 of these monitors and both arrived with a single dead pixel. To troubleshoot to make sure the pixels were in fact dead and not stuck I ran UDpixel on the area for an hour, no luck.
