Closer Look at the LCD
With the buttons you will be able to control pretty much anything from brighness to display input. The various buttons will easily make sense to you after a few pushes.
On the back of the screen there is a Asus logo on the middle while the top is equipped with ventilation grills. The foot has some type of cable holder placed on it.
At a first look we see that this LCD also has speakers built into it. You also need to hook up the USB for the webcam and then choose which input you want to use. HDMI will give you a superb picture whatever the case is but DVI keeps up pretty good though.
On the left side of the monitor the power plugin is mounted, I found all the plugins to be placed a tad wrong since they are hard to reach and plug something into if you are sitting in front of the screen.
The bottom of the stand/foot is equiped with four rubber feet to prevent the monitor from moving and they also protect your table from scratches. Lets take a look at the monitor menus and see what settings it offers.
Looking at the menu we can see that there is five tabs that you can go through for various settings. The colors of the menu are very comfortable to use and the menu responds to button pushes without any delays. These are all stock settings that you will see and they ended up working pretty good except the contrast that I had to lower a tad for my eyes to be able to watch this screen for a longer period of time.
The monitor also offers various modes that are pre set settings for various functions that you might use the monitor for like theather, gaming or night view. The modes change the settings for the best viewing experience for you.
Something that might end up being quite annoying is usually skin tone which can be way wrong and not realistic but on this monitor you can change that also. You got three inputs VGA, DVI or HDMI. HDMI offers the best performance and output of course but not many have a HDMI videocard yet so the DVI plugin will still perform very well.
