Excellent: Very pleasantly surprised!
on February 1, 2011
I needed an inexpensive monitor to use with my netbook at home. Did not want to toggle with the high-end IPS monitor that I use with my tower. This ASUS met all my requirements (size, price, etc.) ... and when I actually fired it up was amazed at the display quality.
The LED backlighting makes a tremendous amount of difference. While super bright (can be adjusted down), it is still soft on the eyes.
The quality of the resolution (at any setting) is actually extraordinary. I had purchased another monitor for this purpose from a local electronics store (which actually cost more than this one), but the quality was atrocious so had to return it.
This monitor I think would be excellent at any work station, and can be viewed comfortably for long periods (I have very sensitive eyes). The colors are gorgeous!, compared with any monitor type. The screen size seems larger than it is, and is excellent for work (word processing, etc.) or play (games, movies, etc.).
It tilt adjusts nicely, controls are easy to understand and use, and has a solid build feel with a stable base. In this price range one cannot expect it to have a height adjustment, too, so I've elevated it about 1" and it's perfect.
Did not expect it to be this good, so as the title of this review says, I was very pleasantly surprised. It's my first ASUS product, and now will be open to purchasing ASUS products in the future.
