Nice monitor

 

I am using three of these for my flight simulator and they are awesome and have been a great addition. I recommend this monitor especially when they are offering the $30 Amex card after purchase. Great monitor

Nice screen and picture ; Good adjustability ; Menu screen isn't hard to learn ; Came with all cords you could ever need

None I can see so far

Colors

 

I have seen a few people post about colors looking kinda washed out for this monitor and here is a quick and easy solution for you guys and gals. This applies to Nvidia users , but I'm sure there is a setting in there somewhere for AMD ; In your Nvidia...

Limited color was turned on by default with two of these monitors connected via display port. Why

Good for work, not for play

 

I bought this monitor to mainly do software development on... and it is fine for reading and writing text, and web browsing. But it is absolutely not recommended for watching film, TV, or playing video games... which is unfortunate because it is such a...

Beautiful looking display. Thin bezel, minimalistic, good adjustable stand, easy to assemble, nice variety of input ports

Black levels are terrible. Even with the brightness turned all the way down, the blacks are much worse than my 7 year old Syncmaster 226CW, which barely turns on anymore. This is especially noticeable if you look at it from an angle, and around the...

disapointed

 

how is it possible that my old benq gw2750 looks sooo much better than my new asus monitor??? on the benq the colors are brighter, the blacks are blacker, and it also beats it with a 4ms response time. they are both va panels, i though for sure the...

Super thin bezel

grey ; washed out ; the speakers are nothing to brag about, which was to be expected

Great Monitor!

 

Never tried the speakers out as I only wear headphones whenever I am on the computer; read most people didn't like the built in speakers (don't bother using monitor speakers as most are not great anyway). Also for those who might wonder about the ASUS...

Great Adjustable Stand(able to turn to Portrait or Landscape) ; Super thin bezel ; Comes with a various amount of cables/adpaters ; Amazing picture/quality ; Matte Screen ; The Size of the monitor is Incredible

None that I could honestly say

Monitor works fine, when they include all of the parts.

 

All in all these monitors appear to be good, it's the manufacturer I have an issue with. My display was shipped to me in a new unopened box which was in great condition, looked like it was straight from the manufacturer. I point this out because there...

Good looking monitor, comes with cables, thin bezel, decent price

Doesn't come with a standard HDMI cable. Height Adjustment and Pivot/Tilt seem loose. Terrible customer service, which I found out because I had to call the manufacturer due to the display missing parts

Great for Single or Multi screen setups

 

Over all I have 99% good things to say about these panels, I watch a ton of movies and play my PC games deep into the night, Very pleased with these monitors. Buy this or the VN27Q model when they are on sale and rebate to keep costs under 300 bucks....

First as title says great for multi screen setups. You can even use the included stand for all 3 screens as you can use the stand to run in landscape or portrait, Or if you prefer it has VESA mounts for monitor stands or wall mounting. Tiny Bezels...

I guess the lack of a DVI port is my biggest gripe. Also if you are going to wall mount the on/off and controls are on the bottom back of the panel so you would need to have a little gap to get your fingers behind there to turn it on/off and or change...

GREAT monitor!

 

I did a lot of research online for a monitor (to get 24" or 27"). I use a 15" MBP and needed to get a bigger screen to view blueprints/architectural plans ; It was important that it was "ergonomic" and that it was able to tilt, swivel, pivot and height...

There's a TINY red dot on the left side of my screen. Can't really tell it's there unless I look for it. Other than that, no other dead/stuck pixels. I didn't bother to contact Newegg or Asus since I was afraid there would be more dead/stuck pixels in...
