Pros: - Extremely sharp and the color is spot on. My previous monitor was a high-end unit that was professionally color calibrated and this Asus looks even better.
- Although the screen size is the same as my previous monitor (24", 16:10), it is physically significantly smaller due to the very thin bezel.
- USB 3.0 hub with 4 ports is very handy.
- Excellent connectivity (HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA)
Cons: - Using the HDMI interface, when my computer shuts down, the monitor screen goes to a bright blue screen for about 5 seconds before going to sleep. This doesn't happen when using the DisplayPort interface.
Overall Review: I love this monitor and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a high quality professional display. The Calman verification and factory calibration means it's ready for professional graphics and video work right out of the box.
Pros: - 120 additional vertical pixels add a lot of screen estate
- Prefer the 16:10 aspect ratio
- Great colors, contrast
- I don't make measurements, but pixel response time is good enough for gaming
- Easy on the eyes
- Flexible stand (I used VESA mount though)
Cons: - Dead pixels are still a thing in 2020
- Otherwise, no con, except maybe a bit expensive, but it's made to be perfectly calibrated for designers (which I am not either, lol)
Overall Review: Overall a great display. I didn't buy it because I'm in graphics design, it just fit my fancy perfectly. I really love the taller aspect ratio in particular!
However, on the minus side, Asus doesn't have a zero dead-pixel policy, and I have 2 partially dead pixels (blue and green subpixels are dead on both, not the red). Fortunately, they're not in the center of the display, but unfortunately, they're still not that close to the sides so it's a bit annoying to say the least.
Pros: Unbelievable color reproduction
Super easy to install the stand
Full range of motion pan, tilt or raise / lower
Very sturdy construction
When using the buttons on the front of the monitor a little icon illuminates above it so you know what the button is. No guessing required!
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Bought cheap monitors in the past, spend a little more makes a huge difference! This is a great monitor
Pros: Colors are sharp and vibrant. the onscreen controls work well and the presets are helpful. Works great on HDMI and Display Port.
Cons: The monitor is 16:10 aspect ratio and the drivers installed the monitor is detected properly on HDMI and on Display port. The d-sub(VGA) connector does not see the monitor correctly. It appears as a generic monitor which displays as 16:9 and limited resolution. I must use D-sub as i connect to multiple systems with an 8 port KVM.
Overall Review: This is probably the best monitor i have owned. I would recommend it and i would buy another one.
Pros: - High color gamut
- Easy on the eyes
- 16:10 ratio good for photo editing
- Screen almost edge-less
- New stand better for cable management (if not using arm w/ VESA mount)
- Now comes with 6' HDMI cable (finally!) instead of VGA ::eye roll::
- Did I mention VESA mount?
- Nicer material finish (feels more "pro")
- Cheaper than previous model
Cons: - Viewing angles a little worse than the previous model.
- No longer has DVI-D input, and 1 fewer input overall (older model had VGA, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort). Yes, I love my DVI input
- USB 3.0 Hub awkwardly located - 2 on left, 2 on bottom where it's hard to reach. I preferred the 4 on the left arrangement
Overall Review: If you do a lot of professional design work, this is an excellent entry-level professional monitor. I use the older model for photo editing, 3D modeling and architectural work and it excels for all. I gave the newer model for my wife to reduce eye strain from working at home during the current crisis.
Pros: Absolutely incredible color, contrast, brightness and sharpness
Very intuitive and comprehensive on-screen settings with front-mounted controls
The adjustable tilt/pivot/swivel/height is great
The design is useful and looks amazing
The added built-in features are very helpful
Overall Review: Anyone doing artwork or video editing who is on a budget will love this monitor. For the price it offers an absolutely unbeatable array of features. Even if you aren't on a budget this makes an excellent second monitor, and it also works great for gaming. The speakers are definitely not great but I can't list it as a "con" because built-in monitor speakers are never going to sound good. I consider the fact that they even have them to be a bonus. The packaging was solid but easy to open, and assembly was a breeze. The positional adjustment is easy to use but sturdy and there is very little "shake" as with some cheaper stands. The styling is top-tier, front and back, and looks very clean and professional.
This is an amazing value and to say that I am thrilled with this monitor would be an understatement.
Overall Review: The monitor is fairly colour accurate, it doesn't quite beat my NEC PA242W Spectraview monitor being slightly weaker in contrast, colour saturation and black levels but at a fraction of the cost, it is close enough at first glance. Everything else works quite well from a very adjustable stand to nice thin bezel. The main weakness however is the lack of an up front input select button. You need to go through quite a few button presses to change the input. A problem if you're using mutiple systems.
Pros: Easy setup, colors look great right out of the box. Came with no written instructions but pushing the buttons on the bottom bezel brought up intuitive menus for adjusting color, brightness, etc. Using it to view documents, it's great to have the extra height of the 1920 x 1200 screen. Also nice to have bigger images in gallery view during Zoom meetings. Stand is solid and heavy, no worries about the monitor tipping over. Nice that it rotates into portrait view for looking at tall images/documents
Overall Review: If you are looking for a nice 1920 x 1200 monitor at an affordable price point, this will fit the bill.
