    Absolutely Amazing

    EASY TO USE. You can assign two hotkeys for a number of different options including volume and brightness for example. This way if you want to adjust the volume from the built in speakers, all you need to do is hit any of the buttons underneath the screen on the bottom right to bring up the hotkey options and hit the button per your choice of option whether it be volume, brightness or changing the input or bringing up the main menu. Beautiful and lightweight. You can title the monitor to help your neck feel better for viewing. It is light enough to carry with little effort. Protection for your eyes. It provides up to 70% reduction in blue light. Blue light for those who don't know (many don't) is not good for the eyes, can cause eye fatigue and blurriness in the short-term and possibly cause vision loss or other eye problems in the long-term. The theory is a debated one but I myself work 8 hours in front of the computer screen and have felt the short-term effects. And as a hardcore gamer as a young boy, I ended up with glasses at the early age of 14. This monitor is also flicker-free and sports anti-glare coating. The perfect protection for the digital generation in which we live. 1ms response time with 60Hz refresh rate is perfect for console gaming. Played Halo 5 on the Xbox One on this monitor and it was a smooth and beautiful experience. For the console gamer or heavy computer user (for work or game), I recommend this gorgeous monitor 100%. And with this forgiving price of $110, you cannot ask for a better deal unless it gets discounted!

    For First Time Monitor Buyers like me until now

    I love this monitor it helped me up my game I play PS4 competitive call of duty and could not ask for better. For more context I'm a 22k on UMG (if you don't know what UMG don't worry about it)The performance for the price is outstanding. it does come with speakers however they are not the best, however if you are looking into buying this monitor it is NOT a deal breaker. I would say BUY this monitor. It is 1ms, I feel a noticible difference while playing, it did up my game. If you have a PS4 or any questions u can msg me on twitter @CMLoFti- or PSN : LoFti- Overall it works as advertised for the money u cant bet the price and when u buy the monitor on the box if comes with a 3 year manufacturing warranty even though Best Buy offers their own which I would still reccomend because Best Buy has excellent customer service.

    So my son plays lots of video games and well his xbox was connected to our living room tv so it would kind of cause some back and forth yelling between his mom because she wanted to watch her shows but they had a compromise what times they would be using the tv but it didn’t last long till they went back at it again so I told my son why doesn’t he connect the Xbox to his Mac but then he proceeded to tell me that he would need a specific “dongle” and well I’m not paying 80 dollars for a small item so one day we were at bestbuy and I my son said how about a monitor and I must say he had the happiest look when I bought him the monitor now he’s telling his friends he has a “setup” and well as long as he is happy I’m happy

    I'm not a gamer; I'm a writer. I wanted something large enough to show two Word docs side by side, but not too big. I had three other criteria: it had to tilt, be a matte screen and have ultra-low blue light. (This 'blue light' stuff is starting to scare me.) Since at 1 ms it's super-fast, I figured it was for gamers, and they'd want sharpness, too. The image is sharp! And the price was right, so this was the one. Easy to assemble and hook up out of the box. The only issue I had was that the VGA connection (the heavy head with screws) would not stay put on the side of my laptop. (That has no screw holes.) The connection would drop each time I touched the cable by mistake. So I went back to BB and got a $10 HDMI cable. Now it's perfect. (And my eyes are happy ...)

    I researched for a great gaming monitor for my son, and this one was an excellent option for what he wanted. The price was great for the speed and for the technical requirements he needed to play. He has had it for a couple of months now, and he LOVES it. It is definitely great value for the price. Usually a monitor with these specs goes for over $200. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

    I play Call of Duty competitively and wanted a monitor with 1ms response time. This monitor blew my expectations away and has been great. One of the cheaper and better 1ms monitors on the market and has the quality of a higher priced monitor.

    Monitor arrived on time, and was easy to set-up. It is terrific. The large screen picture vivid. Sound was excellent unlike numerous negative comments made by other users. Sound easily adjustable using computer volume control. Good price, good value.

    This was substitute product as the one we wanted was not available. This was on the Best Buy web and since it had a rating and review we took a chance. It proved to be an excellent choice. It was easy to install, the picture is superb and the sound is excellent.

    First of all don't let the price tag fool you. This monitor is really good. The input lag is almost non existent. The colors were off a bit from factory but a quick google search gave me the settings I needed.

    It provides a high number of shades between black and white. This range enables accurate color reproduction when displaying images with extreme differences between light and dark for excellent picture quality.

    My son plays games on an asus desk top but wanted a 2nd monitor. We picked this one and he loves it. Works and looks great. He plays Worldof Warcraft and many other computer type steam games.

    No noticeable lag, overall good build quality, great for competitive gaming! Only complaint is that changing the volume on it takes navigation of a few menus, but other than that I'm happy with it.

    This is the perfect size monitor for my desk and has a great picture. I have not played any games on it yet but it should do well, there is no video lag at all. Asus makes great products.

    I use it for school and gaming and it exceeds at both. Looks amazing and feels amazing. Speakers aren't good but it's nice to have them. Besides that everything is perfect.

    I was using a much older monitor the difference was astounding. The adjustment controls could be better but you only have to use them once. Nice product overall.

    Excellent picture quality. Affordable with HDMI and DVI connections. Unfortunately no HDMI or DVI cable, but that's about the only downside.

    The resolution and pixel count does a great job. The sleep mode takes care of itself, and is rapid restart. Could'nt be more satisfied.

    Great monitor, it works as described. My friends say they can see the difference. The sound volume is okay, but you are also able to connect speakers to it.
