    I settled on this because it was the cheapest 23″ I could get, living in california.

    It also has a 3 year advance exchange warranty. Asus pays shipping both ways if you have problems with your monitor, and will ship you a replacement promptly to minimize downtime. This was a big deciding factor in my purchase.

    In comparison, Acer (and some other brands) may sell cheaper monitors, but they only pay RMA shipping one way. Shipping to Acer for warranty claims is at your expense. Considering that shipping a monitor can cost around $15 fedex, you can see why I chose Asus, and not Acer.

    Features-
    The monitor is loaded with connectors. hdmi,dvi,vga, 3.5mm audio, and spdif.
    So, if you want to connect a higher powered audio system, you can. If you want to plug in your headphones, you can.
    The built in speakers are about as good as a typical laptop’s. Don’t expect much from them. Speaker quality was not a consideration for me when I bought this.

    The OSD controls are easy enough to use, though I’ve seen better. There’s a Menu button, back, up, down, and mode button. How hard could it be? Learning curve is minimal.

    Performance-
    No dead pixels. LED backlight means no warm up time, and instant power on.

    There are a few color/brightness settings built in- standard, theater, nighttime, and a few others.
    I set mine to Standard, and tweaked the RBG settings myself. Out of the box, it is set to 100% brightness. I turned it down to a comfortable 80%. The colors are bright; almost a tad neon.

    This is a TN lcd panel, so you’ll get color shifting at different vertical angles; not so much at different horizontal angles. so the person sitting next to you shouldn’t see that much color distortion. Blacks will show top to bottom gradients depending on your viewing angle.

    Gaming performance is good enough. minimal ghosting. The monitor minimizes ghosting by cheating- it has an overdrive feature in the menu called “trace”. If you increase Trace to 60%, response time is lowered. Turn off Trace, and you have a regular 5ms panel. Increasing trace has a negative effect on movies, for example, at the beginning of Sony/columbia movies, where you see the light bursting behind Lady liberty, the light burst is jagged and not smooth. So you’ll only want to turn on Trace when you’re playing games.

    This monitor has a matte anti-glare screen surface.

    The service menu suggests that the lcd panel manufacturer for this monitor is Chimei Innolux.

    This monitor had more uneven backlighting than samsung and LG led-backlit monitors I compared to. The uneven backlighting can be seen as alternating vertical bands of darker/lighter color, when viewing dark non-black backgrounds. See picture attached at the top of the page.

    backlight bleeding is typical, on par with other lcd’s. I have a little from the top, but it’s not intrusive.

    So, considering the uneven lighting and the fact that other manufacturers’ led panels have more even backlighting, I’d give this 3 stars. I can’t dock off too many stars considering the price paid.
    Bonus points for cheap price and good warranty terms.

    I will update my review if my monitor ever fails.

    I bought this at a local brick and mortar, rather than on Amazon.
    No dead pixels and easy setup. Some people have complained that the menu is confusing to go through, but I didn’t find that to be the case.
    I have this setting side by side next to my Acer p221w 22″ LCD and I must say that the difference is pretty noticable. 23″ LED full HD with a 2ms response time and goes up to 75hz all for under $200 …Asus you ROCK.

    The only thing I don’t like about the monitor is the top housing. It is very thick and has an edge on it in the back…If you have a webcam that mounts to the top of a flat panel, won’t work.
    If you get this monitor, make sure to register it on Asus’ webpage, otherwise the 3 year warranty is void.

    I was so disappointed by the high input lag of most modern day lcd hdtv’s that I went ahead and began researching LCD computer monitors. I wanted something to hook my xbox 360/ps3 up to, as well as a Western Digital Live media player for 1080p blurays. This monitor handles them all perfectly and I am very impressed by the quality and pop for a computer monitor. Asus has done a nice job and the LED backlighting is excellent. I do not notice any flashlighting or light bleeding around the edges. I use the stock “theater mode” for xbox 360/blurays and standard mode for my computer. Games are handled very well, details come out and there is definitely a “pop” factor. Lag is no issue at all and I was able to play Battlefield Bad Company 2 online and do alright. I also tested Dragon Age 2 for 360 and that ran well via the 360 vga cable I ordered from monoprice. Please note that you will need an audio adapter cable (female composite audio to female audio head jack) if you want to hook your computer speakers up..after all the speakers on the monitor are weak like everybody else says. Very good monitor that handles motion extremely well. Movies run smooth, games run smooth without any blurring or hiccups. I am glad I went with this ASUS, my first but not my last.
