Top Customer Reviews
I was looking for a 21 - 22 inch monitor and had been looking at the Samsung ones when I came across this monitor described as a multimedia monitor - on the Asus website it describes it as enabling the purchaser "to have live conversations with one friends". Having been used to skype-ing via laptops with their inbuilt webcam and microphone I assumed that this monitor, having a webcam and even inbuilt (fairly tinny) speakers, would have a microphone. Couldn't find one and even contacted Asus support to find it doesn't have said microphone. So I now have nice new monitor and will have to use secondary microphone or headset.
Other things lacking were a UK plug, only a continental one in the box despite the Amazon description saying it was included. Used the old cable but a minor niggle. And no HDMI cable - but forewarned by previous reviews had ordered that separately with the main order.
As for the actual monitor the recommended high definition 1920x1080 resolution is a marked difference from my old resolution of 5 year old monitor and takes a bit of getting used to - the font is small but clear. The control key and scroll wheel of the mouse provides instant enlargement of pages so some tweaking was necessary. Used the inbuilt speakers for a day or two but now have returned back to my 2.1 speaker system. The webcam works fine and setup was easy.
Maybe next time I would forgo the "multimedia" tag and use the extra cash to purchase a higher quality and larger monitor
Very happy with this purchase probably will get a second one.
I found it easy to install and connect (DVI and HDMI) to my desktop PC.
The display does not feel large at all and I can get two pages of Words document on the display which can be read easily. Same apply to Excel spreadsheets where I can get much more columns and widths per page than with my previous 19 inch monitor.
I've Watched movies via "You Tube" and Blue Ray and the colours and quality of the display is excellent!
So far the Asus monitor as been totally reliable..........I hope it will give me many years of use!
My previous monitor was a Samsung Syncmaster 226BW which was perfect in every way and I was worried if I could find one to match. To test it out I put on Battlefield 3, maxed out the resolutions and set graphics to as high as they could go. The monitor was excellent, no ghosting or blurring. The colours are so rich and definately an improvement from the Samsung. Trying Battlefield BC2 I noticed all the maps looked more in depth and once again the colours have changed the way the map looks for the better.
I was worried about having a 27" and only being able to go to 1080p, but I needn't have worried as it looks amazing all the same
For movies this is excellent too, I watched a couple of HD movies and once again these are crystal clear with vibrant colours. Browsing isn't a problem infact I could probably do it from accross the room!
There are a few presets on the monitor to change the way it displays. Sceneryl,standard,theatre,game and night mode. I tweaked the brightness in most of these dropping it down to 65-70 as it ewas just far too bright out of the box.
All in all I give this monitor 5 stars, I bought it at the start of this week when it was £250, a bargain for sure. Now I see it has gone up to £275 which in todays market is still a great bargain.
Delivery was as usual fast from Amazon, living in the Highlands it arrived within 2 days!
Anyone thinking of a 27" should definately consider this if the price stays under the £300 mark.
You'd be hard pushed to find a better deal.
