Great Deal!


There are alot of monitors to pick from,Do your homework and you will see these ASUS Monitors are hard to beat price wise.

Excellent Monitor! As usual Newegg ships fast ; Easy to set up and operate ; 3 Year warranty from ASUS ; 150.00 With Free Ship

you can't beat this deal!


this is a great purchase for the money. i can't give it a perfect rating because there is no digital input. for ten dollars more you can have one with a digital input, but no webcam. it seems to me like a step backwards to sell a beautiful monitor...

large display, bright and vibrant ; auto-adjusts for each new resolution ; nice, clean, extensive OSD ; webcam (plugged it in via usb and vista figured everything out for me. i have not tried the webcam software that came with the monitor) ; looks great

no digital input. NO DIGITAL INPUT ; webcam picture quality is not impressive (1.3MP webcam) ; no mic (just feels like a negative since the webcam is present) ; no speakers

Great Monitor


zero dead pixels. Very easy to access buttons on the front of the monitor. Webcam was simple to setup (vista x64). It has great color and couple of preset color configurations that are fun to play with. Only $150

no dvi

Excellent value!


Will definitely look at Asus monitors again.

Crisp, clear screen. Colors are bright, no dead pixels or any problems. The webcam was just an added bonus. Movies and games both look good

Slight ghosting when moving the mouse and inhumanly slow speeds :P

Overall this is a nice monitor and I'm sure if anyone bought it they'd be very pleased with it. It's just so pretty.

Very sharp clean image. Arrived promptly with absolutely NO dead pixels. Very very nice looking monitor. Haven't tried out the webcam, but for 149.99 out the door... you really can't beat it. If I had the money I'd buy more

No DVI but it's a minor thing

no dvi connectivity, a microphone would be good for the webcam
