4 years of good use...

Daniel K., Newegg
26 April 2014
  • Pros: Worked fine as a 1920x1280 workstation monitor
  • Cons: Started locking up if left on while not in use after four years. (Oddly, this coincided with installing Ubuntu 14.04. Perhaps the way that blanks the screen stresses the monitor out.) I now have to press the power off button before leaving, else I have to power cycle the monitor when I get back t...

Pretty good monitor

Austin M., Newegg
15 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had this baby for more than three years now and It's been a great monitor. Only problem I have with it is that the blacks aren't the greatest, the screen tears with most of my games, and the bad viewing angle because of TN panel, also there is very slight backlight bleedage from the sides.
  • Pros: It's bright, has a 16:9 1920 X 1200 Resolution, and a low refresh rate, good price
  • Cons: screen tearing, bad viewing angle, alright contrast

Great Monitor

John P., Newegg
2 August 2013
  • Summary: Still a good monitor and I guess I still like the company as I have at least six Asus mother board boxes sitting around my room here and Asus MB and Video card in this machine. Just like to have my $25
  • Pros: Love this monitor. The size is great. Lots of room. The colors are good. I read a review about it before I bought it from someone that had sent 3 back because they had 1 artifact. This one has ONE as well. One pixel that stays white - I've got a black desk top which is the only reason I ever saw ...
  • Cons: The only con and to me it is a big deal is I never received my rebate. I know I dotted all the i's and crossed the t's on filling it out. Because just the other day cleaning out my basement I finally tossed out the box it came in with the little rectangle cut out where I cut out the UPC code. It ...

  • Summary: Instant rebate from Newegg. Postal rebate from Asus. Paid with paypal which gave me another rebate! For the price I got it it's excellent.
  • Pros: Large display 1920x1200 Brightness is excellent Vesa 100x100 Component input
  • Cons: Now have trouble switching input / signal detection lock-up then have to be turn off then on. Some backlight bleeding on edge. Had a stuck pixel, but it's working now.

Awesome.

Andy c., Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I'd assume that two identical monitors that were purchased at the same time would look identical, but apparently not. Other than that, these things have been absolutely fantastic. We've got three developers in this office using 3 of these each, and they freaking love them as well.
  • Pros: Monstrous, especially compared to the 20" ViewSonics they replaced. Love the 1920x1200 resolution. Bright and sharp, and right at the weight limit of the cheapo monitor stands I'm using.
  • Cons: I've got two of them right next to each other: one on DVI and one on HDMI. The HDMI display's picture seems to be slightly more vibrant than the DVI's. It's actually gotten annoying over the past two months.

User Review

Daniel C., Newegg
22 August 2011
  • Summary: Over all this is a very good monitor. However it will be a little hard to make a set of three for Eyeinfinity since Size, Ratio and lack of Display port combined makes difficult to find a good match 1-2-1 or 2-1-2 for it. That is where I am stock.
  • Pros: Big Screen Back light - Not bad Splendid function (picture profile) very accurate 16:10 ratio which gives you more screen for browsing Conectivity You might tweak it to run up to 85Hz. Depend on resolution. BE CAREFUL when doing this.
  • Cons: Splendid can be adjusted but you really can not modify the lamp intensity as with other monitors or TVs. This could be important if you are really picky with your profiles for movies, for gaming it is excellent. NO Display port- What a Shame! One dead pixel

Good monitor for the price

David R., Newegg
6 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought two of these so I can run dual head - they work as I expected them to. Wish the color reproduction was a bit better - it took some tweaking to get them to look fairly neutral.
  • Pros: One of least expensive 27.5" monitor you'll find. Uses less electricity than the 22" monitor it replaced (after turning down the brightness to a reasonable level).
  • Cons: Not impressed with the color reproduction/accuracy, but expected that for the price.

Blue Tint not Acceptable

Aristotle Z., Newegg
20 December 2010
  • Pros: Been in this business for 20+ years. Shame on Asus for releasing a monitor line this. Although people have said they reduced the blue tint by playing with the settings, Asus should not expect their customers to have to do this.
  • Cons: If it was not for the blue tint, it would be a perfect monitor.

Good Monitor

Paul K., Newegg
14 December 2010
  • Summary: Does anyone actually use computers for work anymore, or do we all just watch movies? 16:9 screens are frustrating - grab this 16:10 before they stop making them. It's true the viewing angle is not great, but for what I'm doing, I still love it. Looks nice aesthetically too.
  • Pros: 16:10 Huge Clear Text
  • Cons: Sound

Great product

Alan K., Newegg
1 December 2010
  • Summary: Stay away from mail-in rebates and their products. With all the other choices out there for your hard-earned money, you should not have to wait and be hassled for it.
  • Pros: Large. Arrived with no bad pixels. Color, brightness, sharpness, etc. (all the things one associates with a monitor) are excellent. Viewing angle is usually straight-on, but the times I have viewed from about a 60-deg angle and had no problems.
  • Cons: The rebate process is completely ridiculous. They take money from your rebate to send it to you, and it takes an act of congress and lots of postage. I got this rebate, though...not like the EVGA video card rebate I sent at the same time.
