Pros: This is an AMAZING monitor. It has managed to DESTROY every monitor that I have ever owned. I am so glad I have waited for this one! The whites and the Blacks are awesome, Contrast is amazing and can be very bright. Especially for an LCD! The sharpness of the fonts... outstanding! Color range is AMAZING and beautiful. Controls are just fine with me, I like push buttons. AMAZING deal for the price!
Cons: Base is eh, but most are nowadays. however it suit my need fine. Needs some calibration out of the box, but most monitors or tv's do. No star loss Found it Cheaper at other places NEWEGG
Overall Review: This monitor has blown my socks clean off, For the first time ever, I am proud to own an LCD. I love my Panasonic Plasma TV and this monitor is equal in quality as far as I can tell. I had zero dead pixels, Thank goodness, and Asus as far as I can see is blowing away the competition, if you are picky and choose your product carefully.
Pros: When on sale, its a great deal. Three inputs (VGA, DVI, HDMI), one button input switching. Includes VGA and DVI cables, one notch up from utilitarian design sensibility (glossy frame and stand, looks nice), three year warranty, LED, big.
Cons: Power supply is in the monitor (not a "brick") so monitor is a little thick compared to some other LED's.
Overall Review: Shipping/arrival perfect. No dead pixels.
Looking for a good 24" LED utilitarian monitor? Like the peace of mind of a 3 year warranty? Need a DVI cable (it comes with one)? If you can get this on sale, it just might be your next monitor.
Pros: Sweet text on the eyes while working, great during Gaming as the colors have excellent seperation and depth
Overall Review: I am Very good and high knowledge on pc components but really can not make any judgement on monitors as I don't do graphic design or anything but this monitor definately reduces stress on eyes versus a 22" or 23" and has great color saturation for the games I do play. Relaxing to look at
Pros: 24 inch. Multiple presets. Bright. No dead pixels that I can see.
Cons: No source auto-detection. HDMI source has to be manually selected. I thought I had a defective unit until I figured out that I had to manually select HDMI source. Then, every time the computer turns on, a big popup shows ups displaing current input source. This block some BIOS menusat the startup. Height no adjustable.
Overall Review: wish it was 1900x1200, but its OK
Pros: Cheap, nice, very bright and I love that. Newegg rocks and let me have it for a low price of 160 free shipping. Works great for my xbox and my pc. I'm happy with the factory settings right out of box. NO ghosting at all like others have mentioned.
Cons: button layout is a little odd but it's the same as my old ASUS so no big deal.
Pros: - Beautiful display (once you get it dialed in correctly; more on this later)
- VGA, DVI-D, and HDMI inputs!
Cons: - The built-in color presets are just awful. I wouldn't suggest using any of these as they come configured. I was frustraighted with the look of this monitor the way it comes out of the box and was on the fence about returning this monitor, in all color presets it was just WAY to bright / blown out. LOTS of tweeking later, and I've got it looking the way I prefer.
Overall Review: Here's my settings that I use: (connected via HDMI to MSI N660TI PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti)
Brightness - 30
Contrast - 70
Saturation - 35
Color Temp. - Warm
Skin Tone - Natural
Smart View - OFF
Sharpness - 0
Trace Free - 40
Aspect Control - Full
ASCR - OFF
SYSTEM SETUP -
ECO Mode - OFF
Again, these are the setting that work for me... this might give you a good starting point to tailor this monitor to your viewing taste. DON'T SEND IT BACK! It's a great monitor once you have it dialed in correctly!
I don't use the built-in speakers... I feel that those are just about as useless as the built-in speakers on an LCD / Plasma TV. They're never going to be like a good 2.1 or 5.1 system... I'd say skip 'em.
Pros: Large size, 16:9 aspect ratio (1080p). DVI, HDMI connectivity. Zero dead pixels. Integrated speakers do the job. 100mm VESA mount support
Overall Review: Used this as an upgrade to a small mini-pc mounted on the back of this thing via VESA for use in the kitchen. The integrated speakers are nothing fancy but do the job for my application. I've owned several Asus monitors over several years and have always been happy with their quality and price.
Pros: No dead pixels, no stuck pixels, no nonsense. The base was easy to attach, it pivots to the angle that I need it to. It looks good in action as well.
Overall Review: Get one without speakers if you don't need them and save some money.
