Summary: Vibrant colors, widescreen at a great price. I use it for online gaming, no lag or tearing in the picture. NOTE: Only the DVI cable will power on the screen when you turn on the computer, HDMI will not automatically turn on the monitor. If you use HDMI, you will have to manually turn on the monitor each time. Use DVI!
Summary: Ordered this monitor on the 12th and got it on the 14th super fast shipping. I love this monitor the colors are s vibrant and clear 1080p on movies just blows me away cant wait to plug in my Xbox One on this baby.
Summary: The monitor looks great and works as it should except for one issue. When my computer screen turns off when I'm away from it and I come back to the computer, the monitor will not register my computer. I have to push the button next to the power button, which searches for connections before I can use it. all other monitors that I've used would automatically turn back on when I'm back on my computer.
Pros: Worked great, until a cluster of bad pixels appeared.
Cons: Ordered around the end of Oct 2012. Worked fine, until June 2013, when I turned it on to find 12-13 burned out (not stuck) pixels, in a cluster, well toward the center of my screen. No big deal, it happens. ASUS acknowledged that I was still under warranty, and that they would ship a replacement within 48 hours (as the part was in stock at their warehouse). This was four months, 15+ phone calls, several emails, and one letter to corporate headquarters ago, and I have ...
Summary: Buying this product was a nightmare on all fronts, up until the very end. When I received this item, it came with 2 VGA cables instead of 1 VGA and 1 DVI cable, so I called Amazon hoping for a fix. They said I would need to contact ASUS as Amazon has no dealings with what is inside the box unless it is broken (which is completely understandable).
Summary: The monitor right out of the box is way too bright and contrasty. After walking through the monitor setup in Windows 7 the picture looks great. No dead pixels. The only negative with this monitor is the stand. Way too short and way too shaky even after fully tightening the base. I will be purchasing a monitor mount online. However, even after considering the added cost of the mount this is still a great deal. Very pleased. Would purchase again.
