Long Overdue

Pros: I've had this monitor since 2012. It's a wonderful monitor, the colors out of the box have been the settings I have used. I game most of the time, and the first time I used this monitor it was like night and day difference between a TV.

-Only 1 dead pixel in 5 years. I don't even notice it, someone else might, but to me it's just a constant black dot. Like a tiny speck of dirt that can never be removed. It doesn't bother me one bit and I'm very happy to only have 1 in 5 years. Dead pixels were expected, but not found.

-I've taken this to friends houses, I've taken it on multiple trips back and forth to college and my house. (I only wrapped it in a thick blanket) It's held up, I've never had any power issues or anything strange going on like flickering screens. Every setting has always worked.

-I'm sure most monitors nowadays have this but the dimming option was really nice for when I had people sleeping in the same room.

-The speakers are exactly what you would expect. There's a lack of bass, but if you just want to hear sound it will do what you need. If you want quality sound, you're gonna want a separate set of speakers.

I use this monitor as both my PC and Xbox screen. I flip through the inputs to get between them. That setup has been great for many years. I'm just now choosing to update to dual monitors. I wanted to step into the world of 1ms delay and 144Hz refresh rates. ... The first thing I did when I was shopping for a second monitor was look to see if this was still in sale. (Or at least a similar model)

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: If you can find this monitor somehow, or a monitor of the same model just upgraded, buy it. It's served me well for 5 years and I'll continue to use it until either it, or the world ends.

Bought Open Box, delievered DOA, Asus repaired, still running like a champ.

Pros: I bought this as my first 1080p monitor probably 5 years ago. It was open box so when I received it was no surprise that it was DOA. The newegg policy at the time had me RMA through ASUS which I did. Asus paid shipping both ways and although it took an extra two weeks to have it up and working, the monitor has been running perfect since. Built like a tank, has survived many moves and other less than good treatment and is still running just fine.

Cons: a bit heavy.

Other Thoughts: 10/10.

6 Years of Daily use, no issues!

Pros: It has stood the test of time
Reasonable price

Cons: they no longer make it!

Other Thoughts: I still use this to this day! Although I must admit that I am starting to look into the 4K monitors but I will still keep this as a dual monitor set up, or maybe even triple.

Excellent picture, even after 4 years of gaming abuse

Pros: Excellent colour reproduction, sharp distinct detail and smooth rich gradients. Even in very small pixel by pixel detailing. I've been using this as my daily for about 4 years on my work(battle)station, most of that time with the brightness cranked. It's taken all of it from (seemingly) hours on end without moving images in UI design and Photo manip workflows with all their lovely dark, or bright grey window frames to hours of fast paced FPS and racers. Not a hint of image burn anywhere on the display, just as bright sharp and responsive as I remember it ever being.
Had asked a friend to pick another up a year or two ago as he was making a trip to the shop on his way home and he ended up grabbing a Benq because it was slightly cheaper and a newer model.. Well. the colour has never been even close to a full and vibrant and no matter what I do software or hardware settings I CANNOT make that thing comfortably sharp at anything less than the ideal viewing angle. Whereas my Asus is currently on a vesa arm so i can flip it around to nearly any angle for comfort, matching up with y tablet angle, or 3 way eyefinity sessions. And its ALWAYS clear and sharp.

Cons: Sadly, the built in speakers are very tinny, and don't go very loud, unlike the stereo its plugged into with that handy SPDIF for nice smooth sound. But if you actually plan on using the built in speakers, this is something to keep in mind.
Now, it hasn't all been smooth sailing, there've been the odd accident of someone falling into the desk and knocking it, or my attempting to climb to the higher shelf and kneeing it over, but aside from a few nervous moments and some frame scuffs its okay. the buttons however. Are not. and they've only ever broke while trying to use them :/ thankfully their easy enough to pull back into place.

Other Thoughts: overall 8/10 but has become a deciding factor for any future monitor purchase, i'll Be going with Asus here on out
