After loosing the office space I had at my job and needing to becme more mobile, I needed to find a way to still have two monitors. This monitor turned out great. It fits easily along with my laptop in my Tylt Energi Backpack. It is a little less screen real estate than the 19" and 22" in monitors that I was used to, but it does the job I need it to and I have no regrets in the loss of screen space. And extra benefit is that it only adds an extra 6W of power consumption when plugged in to my laptop. Compared to the 35W that my regular desktop monitor consumed, that is a substantial reduction.
This is an excellent product both in value and quality, on par or even above those of ****, **. However the cable USB was too short. I placed a call to ASUS. Waited for 15 minutes. Then the sales rep was clueless and put me on hold while he checked with his manager. All I was asking was the specification of the USB cable. Finally he just rudely told me to get a new cable at a local electronic store. A total waste of 30 minutes. ASUS need to train their customer care specialists better in terms of knowledge and polite courtesy, That is why I give only four star overall.
The USB connection to the monitor is finicky so I would definitely get the warranty. Other than that, it does the job and is lightweight and great for MS Office products/basic computing.
I have yet to figure out how to get sound from the monitor speakers. I have the sound volume set at 80% and can barely hear it. I had to revert back to my Logitech USB speakers. If anyone knows how to get sound out of the monitor speakers, I would like to know.
