The main reasons I selected this were (1) height adjustable and (2) size -- I wanted screen more than 23" but less than 33". There were very options to choose from, given my two constraints. I went for ASUS because of their reputation and shape of the stand. My issues:
1. The picture and fonts don't seem as sharp as I would like them to be even though I have the recommended resolution for this monitor's display (1920 x 1080). I do have the scale at 125% so maybe that makes things a bit blurry. I feel that my little laptop screen is much more sharp.
2. The speaker volume seems much lower than that of my laptop so for some of my online meetings, i have to change the audio to come from my laptop instead of the monitor (which feels odd, to have the sound coming from the laptop which is sitting not right in front of me but a little to the left). I did go into the monitor settings and increased the sound volume of the monitor speakers and that did improve the volume.
3. The monitor user interface (the buttons etc. to control it) are not very user friendly. The control buttons are at the back of the monitor although little dots on the front, and on-screen icons, do help guide the user as to where to put his/her finger behind the monitor to push a button. After you have pushed one of the physical buttons, menus come up on the screen to navigate/modify settings but it is also not very easy/intuitive to navigate them. Overall, not an easy experience to modify the monitor settings. And no guidance at all came with the monitor about the settings. (A very tiny printed quick start did come with the monitor showing, graphically, how to assemble and set it up. Affixing the stand was easy but setting up the cables etc. was not; see next point.)
4. The ports are in an extremely unfriendly position. I had to lay the monitor face down and use a flashlight to look into the difficult hidden place where I had to plug in my HDMI cable etc. After I was done, I noticed that there was a sort of indication on the tiny little printed quick start guide which seemed to show that I could have un-hidden the ports by removing the plastic panel covering it. I then tried to pull that plastic out but could not and didn't try to hard for fear I might break something.
5. The quick start guide could have been a bit more explicit. If you pay more than $400 for something, you expect some decent guidance on what you have bought and how to put it together and also what the settings are.
This is the first time I have purchased a monitor (although have used monitors at my work place previously) so don't have much to compare it too. Perhaps I am being too harsh on the ASUS. But I do think the picture on my monitors at my job is clearer. Also, the picture and fonts on my old Gateway All-in-one were clearer and certainly the display of my small laptop is much more sharp. Maybe there is some monitor (or laptop display) setting I could change but there is no guidance that came with the monitor to help me do that.
