I really LOVE this monitor! The colors are BOLD and the screen is plenty big enough for my 53 year old eyeballs. BUT... it is LOUD. As in VERY bright. I haven't messed with the monitors settings much because it doesn't bother me as much as it might bother others who sit directly on top of it. Mine sits on the corner of a 6 foot training table and I am usually at least 4 feet away from it. I have turned down my brightness a little bit within Windows. Speaker quality is typical for a flat screen. You're just never got to get really robust sound out of such a tiny space. This monitor has plenty of different connections for me as I am so far behind the times with regards to modern day electronics. I can build and repair my my own computers but I know nothing of HDMI and iPods and all that jazz. I still listen to music on vintage 1980's/1990's audio gear that will smoke anything modern which I can afford. I really like the ASUS line. I use their motherboards and burners in my builds. I have their top line sound card in my BIG desktop. Their products have never let me down.
Nice monitor that is lightweight with sound. The sound is actually much better than I expected after reading other reviews. My only problem has been using the controls since they operate differently than described in the manual. Also have been unable to darken the screen enough to work in low light, it is very very bright. That said, it is great in bright daylight.
