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 picture and good pixel response time. Built-in speakers aren't high fidelity, but fine for most everyday needs. HDMI cable is included. Monitor seems a bit flimsy, but for most use cases should be fine. However, excess moving / rough handling could potentially cause delamination leading to darker patches within an image. Not an overly common issue, but experienced it with a similar model Viewsonic that was frequently moved. Adding an extended service plan may be worthwhile. Brightness default is set to max, which can be too bright. Adjusting it down to 80% or so can help, and may improve picture appearance. If the sound volume seems too low in applications even at max, go into the monitor menu options, and increase the sound level there. If seeking to use the max 75 hertz refresh rate, it may be necessary refresh the video driver in the operating system (Windows, Mac, etc) to make that setting available. Also, depending on the video card one is using, select PC for the output mode. The default 60 hertz refresh rate and mode is usually sufficient, so the above isn't required, but can be helpful to those seeking the best picture possible. All in all, it's a great value for a large flat-screen monitor with built-in speakers.
