Why Has it Scored 71?

With it being less than a year since it was released by Asus, this flatpanel monitor features some of the latest flatpanel monitor technology.
This PC monitor has running costs of $110 over 5 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 1,800+ PC screens that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each PC monitor by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the PC monitor is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec PC monitors come to market, the older PC monitors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
