Performs well for its price


Ovreall it's a great product for the price... Has performed well, and I'm happy with it. Doesn't get very hot.. which is good.. Nice choice of inputs too. Highly recommended unless you plan on using it professionally.

Good crisp colors ; High contrast ; High brightness ; Large screen ; Response time is great ; Good (not great) resolution [at 27" 1080p is a bit of a stretch.. 1440p would have been much better)

No USB hub ; Controls are a little cumbersome ; Buttons feel somewhat cheap and "plasticky ; Severe backlight bleeding.. noticable when the video output is supposed to be black - but this is common for LCDs

So far so good!


When I first got the screen, it took some getting used to because it was such a huge screen. Now, I am a bit more used to it but wow... it is still sooo big!

The screen is huge and has the ability to be used as a TV and Computer Screen. I hooked up my PS3 to the additional input. The built in speakers are not a replacement for desktop speakers but they are decent enough

There are no USB ports. Totally uncool. Can't plug in anything to my monitor now. Also, when I shut off the monitor, it doesn't immediately come back on. It turns on, says no signal, then goes to standby, then I have to move the mouse to get it to wake...

Excellent Monitor!


This is an excellent monitor. It was purchased for use in my office to replace an old monitor that was starting to fail. Let me just say that this is HUGE monitor, but is surprisingly lightweight for its size. Set-up took all of 10 minutes and...

Be Careful


Upon arrival, the monitor did not turn on; the screen was dead. Thankfully this happened sooner than later because I was able to return it. Still left a bad feeling in my gut though. When I got the second one it worked fine but there was a pixel blown...

Great Monitor!!!


Very crisp and sharp display. Easy setup and easily adjustable controls

Sound from speakers only OK, but about what can be expected from built-in monitor speakers

Too bright


I bought this to replace my Dell 24" 8ms 250 cdm LED monitor for pc gaming. I'm not so please with the quality of this ASUS LED monitor. It too bright and the colors quality is not vivid. Well, cheap monitor that's why Newegg has great deals on it. I...

27" - Big ; Cheap ; 2ms ; Built-in speakers

Poor brightness and color consistancy


I bought this screen mostly for photo editings. I realize it's not the $1,000 pro-viewing screen ASUS sells, but the consistance of colors is worse than my LED tv, and the brightness consistency is terrible! I have a 4 year old asus screen that holds...

Good price, speakers aren't bad, screen is bright

Color hues quickly change depending on viewing angle. Brightness changes depending on colors being displayed. You can literately see the screen dim or brighten when the screen changes from a bright color or dark color. For instance if you are viewing...

power plug issues


asus used to be a name you could count on every time. but after buying this item i can say it is not so anymore ....sad times. more so since i purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son he was disappointed, he will get over it.... but i wont.

great looking screen easy to put together package comes with lots of connection options

seems to be very very poor quality control had to RMA because power plug connection seems loose and will shut monitor off if cable is moved even slightly
