Decent monitor


Decent monitor. Have owned for a year and a half

There's a small circle (but big enough that anyone can see it) on the bottom of the monitor now ; Not sure how to explain it, but it's like part of the monitor fried or something. Looks ugly and is annoying. Definitely didn't expect it to happen to...

Great Monitor!!!


To those complaining about it only having a VGA input here's something you should know. Modern video cards run at the same speed and picture quality on both the VGA and DVI outputs so stop trying to SLI your 12 year old Riva-TNT and buy a new card.

Great picture, the LED backlighting makes everything look almost lifelike. Uses half the energy of a CCFL backlit which helps with the electric bills

The menu can be a little confusing but no worse than when you first learned how to program that Betamax in 1982. If I'd known the price was gonna go up $20 I woulda bought 2 at the time

Poor Customer Service from New Egg


Customer Service at New Egg is going down hill.

Great Monitor, I think

Over a month ago I purchased an ASUS monitor. A few weeks ago, I requested a replacement VGA cable, as the one that shipped with it has been producing a bad signal. You claim to have shipped it on 1/11. Perhaps it is in the middle of some desert on a...

What were they thinking?


Who knows

This is probable a great monitor, with a lovely picture, etc. I'll never know, because IT CAN'T BE INSTALLED ON A MOUNT, STAND, OR WALL. It is listed as being VESA compatible, and it is, but YOU CAN'T REMOVE THE STAND WITHOUT DISASSEMBLING THE MONITOR....

What a score!


buy buy buy

I scored this from the early Black Friday sale (wet wednesday???) for an amazing price (significantly lower than what it was priced at the time of my writing this review). Looks amazing, works great. How can you go wrong

VGA only

Great little monitor if tweaked right.


Great monitor for the price!

Small and light, I personally like the 1366x768 rez because 720p is a small and simple format, no need to kill your GPU. Running I7 2.80 Ghz, 8 GB DDR3, Radeon HD 5770 1GB and I can play Skyrim at max settings, though if I play on my Asus 24" 1920x1080...

No Dvi, when Dueling this with my 24" Asus 1920x1080 you can tell the digital from the analog. When first hooked up I was disappointed in the picture, ran both my monitors in duplicate mode and tweaked it to look like my 24", then i was satisfied....
