Summary: I purchased this monitor a few months ago and decided to by another to add to my desktop setup. They sent me one that is a completely different model but has the same model number. The screws do not line up with the monitors I purchased a few months ago. I called ASUS and they could not provide a solution and were confused as to why they have the same model number. They said that they rarely do that, however they will not provide me a refund.
Summary: I have mostly good things to say about this monitor and only a few small issues to bring up. The contrast is absolutely incredible! I play Battlefield 3 on this monitor with my Xbox, and for those of you who are familiar with the game, you know how bright and dark different points can be. I am constantly moving from the super-bright to the super-dark in a way that leaves me feeling like my eyes are actually adjusting to the different light levels, and both feel great!
Summary: Bought this to use not only as a PC monitor but as a TV as well. Hooked up to a Comcast uDTA box via HDMI for picture, and used a MediaBridge male-to-male stereo cable from the headphone jack to the input jack on my speakers. Connected to PC via DVI and all works well. Pros: - Great picture, much better than my other 3 year old LCD monitor. - Easily accessibly buttons and menu. - Fairly sturdy base. - Price, especially for an IPS monitor.
Summary: i purchased this asus monitor in hopes of upgrading the dell monitor that was purchased together with my dell dimension desktop computer (windows 7). unfortunately, the asus did not sync with the dell computer well at all, and after some frustrating hours of attempting to get the picture, print size, etc. to adjust to my liking, i had to give up, and instead gave the monitor to my son. it works fine on his computer, so he is happy.
Summary: I love this monitor! I Prefer the push buttons (which this has) and not the touch sensitive controls. I did replace the stand with a VESA stand I purchased at Staples and now it is very sturdy! This monitor is VESA mount cable and that is all I will buy as the origianl stand was too wobbly for me.
Summary: Very nice build quality on this monitor. Plenty of connectivity options. The only thing I would add to it is speakers, but even that isn't a big deal. The picture quality is excellent. Very affordable 1080p monitor.
