Consumer review (

Asus LCD


I would say it is a 79 dollar monitor but with the free shipping it came close to the price. When delivered by UPS the bottom of the box was ripped out and had to check it out before giving to customer. This was not NewEGGs fault though.

Looks good, no dead pixels

No DVI input, Not a great price but I know the name ASUS cost extra. The customer needed one rite away

PLEASE don't review items if you can't read


If you can't read the description when you buy an item, you shouldn't buy it....

It's an inexpensive monitor...overall good specs for what it is...and, VGA connector. These dropping prices are driving me crazy

none at the moment

ASUS VB172D Black 17" 5ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 4000:1(ASCR)


RMA'ing this monitor. I will update the review on the second monitor.

Price, $99 w free shipping! Fast panel for the money

Quality control - like other cheap panels ; This panel has SEVENTY, yes SEVENTY pixel problems!!! dead pixels black & white, stick red blue and green pixels. Worst I have ever seen! Ive got a 52" LCD TV and 22" Acer monitors. Between the entire lot...

Bought 2, work Great


No DVI, but I wasn't looking for that so I don't really care. Great budget monitor and works with a wall mount :D

I ordered 2 and they arrived quickly and both work great. Wall mounted one of them and the other is just a standard desktop monitor. Picture looks good, reasonable price, just what I wanted

One of the monitors had a dead pixel but I'm not going to cry about it, stuff happens

Was expecting a DVI from a "New Arrival"


I overlooked the DVI when buying this and had to cancel my order. I really though a new arrival item from a top name like ASUS would suport DVI.

Great contrast ratio ; 5ms ; 75hz ; Light ; Simple stand

Does not support DVI ; Some pics look glossy, but it actually isn't
