Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great product, beyond expectation.

 

After buying a new DISPLAY PORT 1.2 from ACCELL all problems went away, better image and even definition than any other cable port, so my advice is get a better display port for flawless image, specially in gaming, that's my grain of sand for any one...

Beautiful screen Color is fantastic high and pivot and all the adjustable are a plus

Bought it in 2013 so i paid way more, than what it cost now The original DISPLAY PORT that came with it is flawed causing issues.

Asus monitor

 

Will give it one more try for a replacement

Fantastic 29" monitor with great specs for gaming or otherwise. Its the ultimate monitor and I've owned many over the years. Asus is normally a quality brand.

Had the monitor less than 24 hrs, the monitor is a refurb which I thought I would try and save a few bucks, however the monitor (even as I write this) goes black and then back on. It was supposedly refurb'd at factory however I have my doubts. Going to...

Awesome, with one caveat

 

All in all, for the ~$350 I spent on it, this is an excellent monitor. The DisplayPort keeps it from being a natural 5 egg, but I can't pick 4.5 egg. If you want to get into the 21:9 without killing the bank, I'd recommend this in a heartbeat. Just...

This monitor is pretty solid, I've been using this as my only monitor for almost a year now and I've been extremely pleased, especially with the more than reasonable price. The colors are nice and vivid (IPS for the win) and the response time is pretty...

The DisplayPort acts strange. If the monitor goes to sleep, it won't regain signal when it wakes up. I switched to using DVI and I've had no problems at all. HDMI from my laptop works properly too. The backlight is slightly uneven as well, but this is...

Really good monitor but...

 

Overall really great monitor, just wish the DP wouldn't have died on me as i prefer it over DVI.

Great Picture, color scale is average, aesthetically pleasing, great adjustability

DisplayPort stopped working a week after purchase,confirmed its not video card nor the cord, so it is running through DVI, would like to RMA but too busy to be able to ship it back.

Did anyone test this?

 

I had to give this monitor a 3 egg considering I was battling figuring out what was wrong with my display-port signal. I first thought it to be my pc then the cable itself. But then it turns out this monitor has a bug so annoying that if it goes to...

Already concerned

 

I would assume that this issue is most likely software related, so Asus should definitely consider working on a firmware update for this monitor to stop causing it to idle and ignore signal from the DisplayPort connection. I do not want to go through...

The monitor has a beautiful display without a doubt. Sharp images, great color depth and the ultra wide presentation is awesome for movies and games. Everything seems well built and sturdy, as well as the speakers not having a buzz to them as my...

The main issue that I have with monitor is that it is currently disappointing and buggy when being used for gaming. The PC that it is hooked up to is half for gaming, half for school work. When gaming time comes around, it is for competitive RPG and...
