Rated 4 out of 5 by BigBadBenji Very good monitor
This is a very good monitor providing high quality at a decent value. The picture quality of the monitor is crystal clear and crisp with a great range of colours. The built-in speakers also produce really good sound, not too much of a difference from a standard TV.
The monitor is very easy to set up and takes up only a small amount of space.
The only flaw I can note about this monitor is the menu buttons are touch responsive and can therefore be very temperamental and too sensitive. It took me a while to select the right settings for the monitor because of the buttons.
This is a great monitor and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vinushka Brilliant monitor, with a flaw for UK customers
Fantastic looking monitor - colours are vibrant and bold, the slim bezel looks great both with the screen off and on, the overall design is attractive and professional looking.
The speakers are exceptional for a monitor, great for casual gaming sounds, not sure how it fairs up in a game like Battlefield or COD but I imagine a range of sounds would be complemented nicely.
Howvever, as a UK customer, I was shocked to discover that the UK plug wasn't compatible with the power block. There was a single socket on the power adapter for the EU cable which has a different connector to the UK cable. This made the UK cable obsolete and the monitor obsolete unless you have (or purchase) a EU to UK plug adapter, which I had to do. Fortunately, this only involved a short drive to the nearest store but it was still a major downfall considering I had purchased a product from a UK store.
I fully recommend this monitor for those who want an centrepiece for their desks and are prepared to splash out over £200.

Wow. Can't get enough of these Bang and Olufsen speakers. So nice. Pure quality.
Found the set up for the picture very strange, and also cannot get rid of some little box that floats about the screen, it says something about "demo" and I'm yet to figure this out. But other than that this monitor is lush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick95 Beautifully amazing
I can't recommened this monitor enough, I had it for about a month now, I have originally bought it accompany my PS4 but I use it more often as a dual monitor for my laptop.
I have never realised how washed up colours on my laptop were until i got this monitor, god those colours are beautiful! As a Graphic Designer I have to say that the feature where it shows you how big an A4 is on Illustrator or other programs is just great!
Sound is also astonishing, I don't think that there is any flaw which I don't like in this monitor. Hands down ASUS, you did a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Narco Superb Monitor For Excellent Value.
I recently ordered this monitor and the delivery timing was impressive as always, although I wasn't happy with the packaging. I received it in its original box and it wasn't protected at all. Upon opening it up I just hoped it wasn't damaged and to my suprise it wasn't. (Your lucky I love you so much Scan).
I have been looking for an upgrade for quiet a while from my Samsung 22'. The build quality of this monitor is fantastic, solid and elegant. I was quiet over whelmed by the size as I hadn't seen this in store so make sure you have a little more room to fit this into your set up.
Out the box the settings where a bit mehhh... But after a little adjustment its now running like a dream. I mainly use it to play games on although I have watched a film or two on it and its SWEET! the Bang & Olufsen Icepower speakers which are built in are nothing more that perfection. Best sound I have heard from a monitor.
Only had this for a few days but if you have any questions please ask away. -_-

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jimbill Dissapointing :Great design, poor screen.
Despite the lovely edge-to-edge design of this monitor, I can not recommend this product as the performance of my particular screen was disappointing. There was very noticeable backlight bleed from both bottom corners, colours were washed out and the text was blurry. Despite spending 3 days with the monitor trying to adjust to my liking, I eventually returned for a refund.
