    BEST MONITOR THEY HAVE

    This is by far the best monitor for the price and value. I searched around a bit and got this one, and so glad I did. The look of the monitor is far better then others i looked at as well. Has a gloss finish, with the power button out of sight (red on standby and blue when on, and glows downward). Graphics are awesome. Dont judge this by others comments saying they had bad video with HDMI, they just have bad hardware. Im running full HD on mine and it looks flawless. Speakers are quiet but are you really looking to buy a monitor with built in speakers? You wont be disappointed on this monitor. Im looking forward to getting a 2nd for duel monitors. Im also using this for my 360. By far the best one, and best looking one.

    Great Monitor for the Price

    I love this monitor. I primary use this to play my XBOX360 and watch stuff on Netflix and Hulu. I will admit that I am not all that familiar with ASUS and their products. For what it's worth, I say I got a steal. The image quality is great. It does what I got it for. The only problem is that the sound is not the loud, but I don't care THAT much since I have speakers and there is a jack to connect them. For a 21.5" monitor, it is bigger than what I thought it be. For being a 21.5" monitor, it does not take up a lot of space on my desk. Overall, this is a great product for what I paid for and do not regret buying it one bit! I recommend this to anyone and everyone!

    Great HD Monitor

    I love this monitor. I hooked it up to my laptop and I use it as my main display, it's great being able to slide windows from one monitor to the other. I was able to get a very cheap HDMI cable elsewhere and I'm loving 1080p. Overall the ample space that you get from such a big display is great! The speakers aren't great, although I'm not worried because my laptop has very good speakers and I normally use headphones anyway.

    Having a need for a very specific type of mounting location on the back of the product, these monitors were exactly what i needed. They mounted to my dual monitor stand with ease and worked great with the existing products i already owned. Though the speaker quality built into the product leaves much to the imagination, I did just reconnect my separate computer speakers and left it as is. If i had to be remaking this decision i would definitely repurchase these monitors as they function for exactly what i wanted them too do, as well was at a very decent price at the time of my purchase.

    I'm thoroughly pleased with this monitor. I especially like the front panel icons that indicate the functions of buttons located under the bottom bezel. I've had several monitors with controls labeled on the buttons themselves but they are never located within line of sight. The only mild annoyance is the fact that none of the display presets (Standard, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB, Scenery) get dark enough by default. The great thing is that each of these presets can be adjusted to your preference!

    The product arrived promptly on time. Only problem was HDMI cable was missing. Now I can't understand if the cable was not part of the deal or someone simply forgot to put that in the box. Had to spend more money for the cable since my laptop only has HDMI port. I will not recommend buying from BestBuy online. So when I needed wireless keyboard and mouse for the monitor, I went to PC Micro Center and also bought the HDMI cable there. Best part was Micro Center matched the BestBuy price for the keyboard and mouse!

    Good looking monitor but..

    This is a good looking monitor and very good picture quality for the price. BUT it does not have built-in speakers.. I guess I should have read some more reviews but being that it's 2017, I just assumed that all monitors had speakers and didn't have to buy external speakers. I will be returning this item for a monitor with speakers because I do not have room for anymore stuff on my desk. I'd recommend the monitor highly if you have no intentions on listening to videos of music etc.

    Great specs for the price

    This monitor is probably one of the best you can get if you compare price to specs. You get LED back lit and HDMI all for about $150. Most monitors would be closer to $200 if you wanted both of those options. Images are crisp and the colors are very vibrant. Only thing is that it is a bit bulky. Not overly huge, I would say normal size. But its not the slimmest monitor.

    The quality of this monitor is good. The nice thing is that I can hook it up on a potential desk mount because of the 4 screws on the back of the monitor. I use this monitor as a secondary monitor. For gaming it's pretty decent in colors. For 3D graphics and movies is pretty good too. In overall an excellent monitor that deserves a 5 stars review.

    Love it. Best deal I found. Searched for weeks

    To get all the features this monitor has - VGA, DVI, and especially the HDMI (I just bought a new laptop with an HDMI output) for the price and size of this monitor was amazing. I searched for weeks at all the big stores and this was THE best deal. I am completely happy. This monitor is a perfect second view to my laptop (which is 17.5) Not only that, I can use the HDMI out to watch Blu-ray movies.

    Image is not so good with HDMI input from my PC, so I had to use the DVI input. This is not a huge deal, but I had to use a speaker cable as well. The sound quality is so-so, but I don't use this PC for gaming so it is adequate. The monitor was just right for the price. I would purchase the same one again for this application.

    Defective product

    I wasted a lot of time reading reviews prior to buying Asus - 21.5 Widescreen Flat-Panel LED-LCD HD Monitor - Black and waiting for it to be delivered. Once delivered, I found that the HDMI cable wouldn't fit because the port wasn't large enough so I took it back to Best Buy. They should chastise ASUS or the vendor as someone should have prevented this lemon from being sold.

    I waited a month to review. This is one of my dual monitor displays at work, powered by my Dell docking station. The display is quick, clear and crisp. I have zero issues with performance or clarity. It does not strain my eyes under harsh fluorescent lighting. Got it on a deal of the day and I should have bought two.

    I have this monitor set up with my computer in a room where there's a lot of windows but there's absolutely no glare on the monitor at all. The computer's main monitor reflects a lot of light and gives off an annoying glare so I use this monitor as the primary and the computer's monitor as secondar.

    I love this monitor... it was a super buy. I love the size. It's has great colors... clear picture. The speakers are weak but a at least this monitor has speakers. So many monitors did not. If you don't want a lot of loud sound...you'll love this monitor like me. Meets my needs perfectly

    Overall, good monitor- not much to say one way or the other. It works well. It isn't fancy but it fits the need. Compared to the brilliant, glossy display on my all-in-one computer, it seems a little lackluster but no real complaints.

    I loved the ability to use multiple connection types as I already had one monitor connected to my PC. I was a little disappointed with the sound that comes out of the built in speakers. For the price, it is a GREAT monitor. I can easily connect speakers!! I would buy this again!

    Very easy, quick setup. I was surprised there wasn't a setup disc in the box. I just hooked it up, turned it on, and it worked. The only problem I had was the first time I turned it on, nothing happened. I pulled the power cord too tight and it came loose at the back of the monitor.

    Needed a new monitor for my son's PC and have always had luck with ASUS products and I can tell you that streak continues. The imagine is nice and crisp, the sound is not the best but that is why you buy computer speakers for. I love th size of it and it makes working on it so easy.

    Was great, then started noticing dead pixels

    grumpybear1031

    Loved the monitor the first day. Got the monitor on February 3rd and noticed lighter pixels in the bottom right corner within two days. It's now the 12th and I've got a bad pixel dead center in the middle of the monitor. I'm going to have to return it because as a graphic designer it will drive me crazy.
