Might be good for playing games; lousy for working with images.

Summary: After the Asus rebate, I paid about $135.00 for a 24-inch back-up monitor. I expected a mediocrity, and that's what I got. I'm not a gamer, won't use it to watch movies. I spend my day working mostly in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and InDesign. As a 2nd monitor (essentially a place to park tools and menu boxes, to free up space on my primary monitor) it's adequate. Still, it's cheaply made and poorly designed.
Summary: Monitor works OK. Rebate is a scam. I included everything in the envelope including the bar code from the box. Got a response back that it was not included and that I could not resubmit. First time I was ever denied a rebate and last time I will purchase an ASUS product.
Summary: The monitor works, but the picture quality is less than spectacular. At full resolution, the monitor is grainy and the viewable area does not extend to the edge of the screen as it does in lower resolution modes (in which the display goes a few pixels beyond the screen edge, cutting off window buttons - equally annoying. When placed in portrait mode, the display gets even more grainy and doesn't look very good. Hardly HD.
Summary: This review might be a little harsh, but it's something that shouldn't happen. I had a blu ray player plugged into the HDMI plug just to do a firmware update on the player. If the monitor is on the HDMI input and you unplug the HDMI cable it will lock the monitor on that input. it will just say there is no HDMI input and will not let you go to any menu. For most people this will not be a problem, but it took me a while to figure out what was going on.
Summary: The price was good, and it had good ratings. However, that's where the good news ends. Has a poorly designed stand, and even gentle typing makes it wobble back and forth. The contrast is very washed out, and text is very difficult to read. Even after messing with the settings for over an hour, it still looks horrible. Dark screens look OK, so if you are primarily going to game or watch videos, it may be OK for you.
Summary: I'm using this monitor for 1 year now. Main problem is colours in the monitor not accurate at all. For designers please forget about this product. But for gamers & normal users I would recommend.
Summary: Dead Pixel on arrival in bottom left region. No noticeable light bleeding. Looks like a great monitor, and I'm super bummed out I have to send it back and get another one. Two stars for now... And I was so excited... EDIT -> Got replacement. Dead pixel. Got another Replacement. No Dead Pixels! About a week into usage the monitor will randomly go black, and then a couple seconds later flicker back on. 3 Duds out of 3.
Summary: This monitor has been wrongly advertised for months now, and it needs to change. It is not 1980 by 1200. The text description confirms that it is 1920 by 1080. The photo confirms this as well. I'm specifically searching for a 1200 monitor, and this keeps coming up in the results, and it's very annoying.
Summary: I took this monitor based on good reviews on c/net. It is very poor. First thing, the display is too bright!. Even in standard mode it was overly bright and colour saturation break easily. I also contact asus - they said the monitor might be defective. Actually, not - this is a natural characteristic of this monitor.
