Very good monitor for the price!

Mizuho N., Newegg
17 June 2015
  • Summary: When I read other reviews, I just did not understand why people are listing their favorite setting for this monitor. I thought that was for gamers, but for this monitor, you may need to change some of the settings to be able to read and write comfortably.
  • Pros: Sharpness (0.248mm pixel pitch), thin, light, and compact body design, 2 HDMI ports, excellent price tag, very clear picture with wide viewing angle (both horizontal and vertical)
  • Cons: Default settings cannot be trusted (for writing and reading intensive work), cannot change the height or swing the monitor, very touchy sensor for the menu

Get exactly what you pay for.

  • Summary: I'm glad I went with this size instead of any of the larger sizes. I'm in grad school and bought this for reading research articles and to type and create documents on. I wish the text were a little sharper.
  • Pros: Sleek design looks nice on my desk. Bright, vivid picture is easy on the eyes.
  • Cons: The OSD is truly a pain. The panel grid shows through the screen. Text is not quite as crisp as I hoped it would be.

Good monitor for non gamers

Anonymous, Newegg
21 July 2014
  • Summary: I paid $150 each and at that price it's a decent monitor. One of them has tearing which is frustrating. I bet there are better monitors out there with a smaller bezel for the price. I'll probably go with a different brand for my next monitor purchase.
  • Pros: I purchased two of these monitors at the same time. • The stand is sturdy and monitor is relatively slim • Monitor is light enough to be easily moved around • Color is quite nice offering a decent range of settings • Anti glare layer works very well
  • Cons: • No VESA mount • One of the two monitors has tearing when gaming or watching videos • The bezel is larger than what is pictured

Just for gaming

  • Pros: I think some of the pros of this monitor is that its very very light. Another is how it looks modern. Then the display looks amazing in BF4. it really takes advantage of the great resolution of this monitor
  • Cons: I do have one con, is that the power buttons and all of that stuff are touch sensitive. If there was a remote included this feature would be fine for me.

WOW! I love this monitor.

Jeffrey C., Newegg
5 May 2014
  • Summary: This monitor blows away my 2nd monitor. I wish I had bought one of these sooner.
  • Pros: Brightness, colors, clarity, detail. This monitor is higher res than my old one and I am ready to throw my 2nd monitor away and get another one of these.
  • Cons: Doesn't have a height adjustment. I want the monitor to be more eye level. So I will have to buy some monitor stands.

Died after 3 months

Michael H., Newegg
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I wouldn't get this monitor again - haven't had great luck with many asus products.
  • Pros: It is a decent, small IPS 1080p monitor with a decent brightness and contrast.
  • Cons: Title says it all - it was a decent monitor, but the image started flickering after about 3 months of use. Hasn't stopped flickering since - all it does is flicker the image.

Just wanted to correct myself

Peter G., Newegg
23 March 2014
  • Summary: Correct something in my previous review. The description does in fact say it comes with 2x HDMI cables, I was only looking at the product photo which clearly didn't show any, so there's that.
  • Pros: See other thoughts
  • Cons: Other thoughts
