5 out of 5 eggs5 Years Running

Pros: -
- Going strong for 5 years June 7th. No flaws
- Has survived a year deployment to Afghanistan which included a military cargo move 3 times to and from its destination.
- Has survived 4 house moves in 3 different US states and 1 Germany.
- Sturdy stand
- Great picture
- Easy to disassemble

Cons: -
- Wish the picture adjustment range was larger/had more of an effect. Seemed to top out entirely too fast.
- Wish it was just a touch brighter.

Other Thoughts: -
- Originally bought this as an Xbox monitor while overseas (desert tents/some plywood shelters) in plenty of dusty and hot conditions. Held up great and has been my primary monitor for 5 years. I am a heavy gamer and for prolonged gaming sessions have not had any eye fatigue issues with this monitor. Would purchase again in a heart beat.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied Overall

Pros: Great quality in picture as well as in build. Has survived many rough car trips.
Going strong after about three years.
Used mainly as a computer monitor, but also works greats as an on the go TV.

Cons: Built in speakers leave something to be desired if background noise exists, but are great in silent environments.
Buttons are tough to see in low light, and have become less responsive over the years.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Crisp, clear, no lag input, and fair value.

Cons: Monitor on stand seems a bit low. I wish they would make the stand semi-telescopic or naturally longer length. Ex: make it taller by 2 inches, or shrink it down to the default height.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Nice

Pros: The screen is very nice and clear. It is very easy to set up. The speakers work great. There are several modes to choose from to go along with what you want to do, including a night mode.

Cons: - The standard mode that it begins at is all most too bright and hurts the eyes after very long.
- The mode buttons are small and it is not easy to change the settings to night mode it you want to.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is a good monitor. It comes across as something that will last.

5 out of 5 eggsOwned for seven years and still great!

Pros: Great colors, been moved around a lot, no dead pixels, good blacks.

Cons: Games under 60fps with 60hz monitors will experience tearing. I do not know if newer monitors fix this.

Other Thoughts: I purchased it seven years ago for $200ish and it is a great buy! I am only going to upgrade if those free-sync monitors drop in price.

5 out of 5 eggsOSD settings not working, UPDATE in Other

Pros: I have one of these monitors I ordered some time ago, it works very well. You will have to make changes to the settings when you receive one of these, the brightness is set to 100% and way too bright. There are other changes to the settings that will have to made also.

Cons: Most of the OSD settings don't work. i have tried some troubleshooting suggested by the manufacturer that was unsuccessful. I could live without some of them but skin tone and sharpness are two that I have to have so I can match it to the other monitor.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this monitor, I just received a bad one.
Newegg is making the replacement of this monitor pretty easy.

UPDATE: 3/5/16
I have sent in the defective monitor and have received a new replacement. The replacement is fully functional and as good as the first asus monitor (same model) I brought a few years ago.
The RMA process was as painless as possible. I had waited some time to see if the monitor problem would work itself out and a couple things took my attention away from it for a while. But the replacement process went so smoothly was done in a such quick manner that I still had time to get my rebate paperwork sent in with days before the deadline.
This is why I shop at Newegg and have done so for many years.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Monitor

Pros: Speakers work
screen good

Cons: Due to the cheap products in the monitor it makes a very loud high pitched noise that you cannot miss. My worst mistake was buying a product from Asus and I researched this problem and they do this with all their products. I tried contacting Asus and it's near impossible to get a replacement. They do not return your emails when you provide all necessary info asking for a replacement

Other Thoughts: Do not buy. I made this mistake but it's not too late for you

Manufacturer Response:
