    One of my criteria is to have built-in speakers. I don't have external speakers nor do I like more tangled wires. The speakers sound better than my old Viewsonic VA1912wb I replaced. That is a welcoming fact. Initially, there was a lot of waviness on screen. The troubleshooting guide suggested video connection as the issue. Turns out that it was my old VGA cable (I didn't want to craw behind the computer initially...). Once I hooked up with the new cable provided, it started working perfectly. I'm running Windows XP Media Center. After I turned off and on my computer, it recognized the new monitor and reset the resolution and refresh rate profile. It now runs at 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz. No driver is needed. I was afraid that I would need to update my video driver since I have a 4 yr+ old computer but I don't. With HDMI, DVI, and SPDIF Audio Output, it will be more than capable to handle my future computer (definitely not with Vista, though).

    Of course, not everything is perfect with this monitor. The buttons and OSD menu are not great. But they are within my expectation based on other reviews I mentioned before. In addition, once you move away from the center view by, say, more than 45 degrees, the picture quality starts degrading rapidly. It means that if you want to show someone standing behind you the pictures on your screen, he/she would need to bend down, sit down, or step back in order to appreciate what you are trying to show. These are just minor flaws that I'm willing to live with for what I'm willing to pay. Overall, I'm a very happy customer.

    August 11, 2009 Update:

    Shortly after I wrote the initial impression above, I began to experience some flickering with the screen.

    By the way, i paid $170 after a $20 mail-in-rebate, just so you all know.

    I ordered two of these Asus monitors for use with my desktop. I believe they are absolutely gorgeous monitors. I tested each for dead pixels and found none. They colors are accurate and vibrant, and the screen is plenty bright. The edges are thin and glossy, giving the monitor a nice look. The screen itself is a matte finish so there is limited to no glare.

    I tested the monitor with a few blu-ray movies. The picture is stunning. I'm comparing these two monitors to an HP w2207, a relatively expensive monitor i purchased two years ago. The quality is the same if not better. I think for the price, these monitors are hard to beat. I cannot compare them to newer LED LCD monitors, but unless you have them side-by-side, i doubt one would notice any significant difference.

    I am using my own speakers and not the built-in ones so i cannot comment on them. I might add though that the purchase of a monitor should not be based on speakers, just buy a cheap pair of external ones. Finally the stand. While it is not as ergonomic or as functional as others, it is solid. You can only tilt the screen, it is at a fixed height. While this provides good stability, if you like a custom height or you wish to rotate the screen, you are out of luck.

    I do not consider myself an expert, but i put a lot of careful research into purchasing a good monitor for a good price. I definitely would make this purchase again.

    Hope this helps.

    - Every video connector you could possibly want
    - 23"
    - Very bright
    - Audio is adequate for a monitor
    - Dedicated input select button
    - No obvious dead pixels (knock wood)
    - Cables included: DSUB, DVI, male/male audio, AC power

    - Limited vertical viewing angle!
    - Cumbersome menu / buttons
    - Highly polished bezel & base scratch easily
    - Volume control buried in the menus
    - No LED backlighting (though not advertised as such)

    This is a lot of monitor for the money! Blows everything in its price range away. If you need a general purpose monitor NOW and can get it cheap (rebate, free shipping, no tax) I recommend it. Though if you can wait, please do as LED backlighting is coming which will give you a potentially more efficient, reliable, inexpensive, lighter, and thinner monitor with significantly better color. I scratched the base before I could even turn it on for the first time, not a big fan of the highly polished plastic motif. Volume is adequate if you turn it way up (85% or more). Biggest con is the vertical viewing angle - no matter how I tilt it I can't get rid of the "dark sky" effect. It's almost as if there is no backlighting at the top, only at the bottom. This is common with most modern LCD monitors though. Base is not particularly flimsy, no vertical adjustment, tilt range is fine. I'm also not a huge fan of the current widescreen craze, and think a square monitor would be ideal. Have seen 1920 x 1200 in stores and prefer that 16:10 aspect ratio to this 16:9, but those are still rather expensive. Note: this is a plug-n-play monitor and doesn't require a driver in XP! Also, the box it comes in should easily survive fairly rough shipping as it is sturdy with plenty of foam inside. Amazon double-boxed mine which made me feel even better about it's journey home.
