2 Months in ... Still Great

I've had this monitor for a couple months now, bought it on sale and it's been working great. Responds seamlessly, crisp colours and overall display, no strange sounds or fan sounds and easily customizable. The mount was a bit tricky to set up for the first time out of the box. The mounting bar was stiff and needed to be pulled out into place, but it felt like you were going to break it and the monitor is very thin and delicate, but you just have to pull at it and pray you don't break something. My only complaint is the speakers, they are muffled (but I don't use them anyways) and maybe it's a mac incompatibility issue but once my laptop switches to the monitor's speakers there is no volume control, except manually through specific music apps. Overall, happy with this purchase! :)

Great Monitor for the money(budget), BUT...

I purchased this on boxing day, and it was for my new built pc. Everything is good, it even has speakers and is full 1080p. But after less than 2 months of use, Yesterday I turned it on and noticed 2 DEAD PIXELS. 2 Dead pixels, in the bottom left corner. One is right by the bezel, one is about 1cm from the bezel. I'm fine with that, but if anymore form NEAR the middle of the screen I will have to change my review. I'm fine with living with 2 dead pixels, any more NOPE. Afterall its in a corner I don't notice it unless I look REALLY close! Overall I would recommend this, but if more dead pixels form I will change this review.

Don't Buy - BAD Quality

After 3 month of use, the screen is getting off out of the chases at the top left corner. The screen panel is simply glued to the chases and with the heat coming from the LED panel, the adhesive melted down and the screen panel is coming out. I contacted Asus and they processed RMA for me but they mentioned this might be physical damage which is not covered! I am not sure if I will send it to Asus because I do not have much time. NEVER BUY ASUS again.

Quality problem after 4 month

The left upper side of the front panel is coming out of the chases after 4 month of use. I contacted Asus service and I am waiting for the response. The screen is very sleek but this quality issue makes me wondering if it really worth it?

Quality for price

The monitor is fantastic for the price. Does speakers are not the best quality but you can expect that from built in monitor speakers most of the time. After about 10 days mine developed some dead pixels however dark spots are covered under the asus warrantee, and if you are still within 30 days of purchase you can exchange the monitor again at bestbuy for a new one, which is the option i opted for. TLDR if youre looking for an inexpensive monitor that is decent quality you found it here.

Sharp and Modern

Bought a set of these recently to upgrade my home office. Modern and sleek monitors with sharp and crisp display. Comes with VGA, HDMI, and audio cables.

  • from Burnaby, BC

At the price - it's a great buy

I shopped around, and this was by far the best bang for the buck. I needed a mid-sized monitor with VGA, HDMI, speakers, and a native 1920 x 1080 resolution. It checked all those boxes and did so at a great price. If your requirements are anything like mine, you can't go wrong with this buy.

  • from Richmond, BC

so far so good

Got it for a dual monitor set up, worked very smoothly out of the box with easy set up (even came with an HDMI cable so I didn't need to look for my own). Thin and has 4 levels of blue light filtering with noticeable differences if you care about that.

  • from Edmonton, AB

It's fine

It looks nice enough and I am somewhat enjoying it, for the price. I am, however, having issues every few times I go to turn it on where it won't turn on or it says there is no HDMI and I have to fiddle with the cords until the monitor decides to register that they're actually plugged in. The setup was also quite annoying, in my opinion. I don't know why the base needed to come locked, I had to go find an outlet and turn it on before I could set it up (with the monitor facing as far down as it could go, as it was locked in that position).

Great monitor in this price

It is stylish and easy to eyes. No complaints so far. Value for money.

Great monitor

Got this monitor on sale, but even at full price, this would be worth every penny. Easy plug and play hook up (via HDMI), stunning display. Feather light too!

  • from Toronto, ON

HDMI problem but overall very good monitor

Got this amazing deal and loved the screen. It was very easy to set up but the HDMI is having issues - keeps showing that it's not detecting. It worked couple of times but lately it's not detecting for whatever reason. I would recommend this monitor for sure.

Very nice screen

For the price of 140 , the screen is excellent. It has great picture and the size is perfect for home - desktop setup or as a laptop extension screen. However, the speakers are really low in volume and not that good. This was my first monitor purchase and it is really good. Be careful when attaching the base to the screen, you will have to tug on the lever arm a bit to straighten it.
