4 out of 5 eggsDecent, Maybe look for a cheaper one

Pros: Gets alot of "wows" and great for watching movies or tv on at night, no need for any tv's (when you have a tv tuner). Love the huge resolutions available and great looking games. 2ms response time.

Cons: Quality doesn't exactly wow me. you HAVE to be set up exactly in front of it, and exactly parallel to it or it will look discolored. Speakers are junk, but I never expected anything out of monitor speakers.

Other Thoughts: Decent, not worth the full $350 it cost when I bought it. The 2 ms is good but to tell you the truth, I can't tell a huge difference. I don't suggest buying this if you don't have a good video card(s) to use it to its full potential. Now that it a little less then when I bought it, it is probably worth it

1 out of 5 eggsvery disappointed :(

Pros: it's big and ummmm it's big

Cons: fuzzy picture, terrible ghosting, makes my games look like trash. lack of downloadable drivers or any kind of firmware update.

Other Thoughts: I play CS:S mostly and in dark areas of the maps the ghosting is terrible. It does in in all areas you just can't see it as well. I do not recommend this monitor at all. The cheap price isnt worth it. I would rather have spent an extra 100 or more to get a decent monitor. I struggle to find one good thing about this mnonitor other than it's big. The buttons for the controls are stiff and akward to use. AVOID THIS MONITOR LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice design. I get no blur on anything so far. Nice crisp clear image.

Cons: The built in speakers aren't very loud for me, you can barely most things with all settings at max.

2 out of 5 eggsGhosting may be fixed

Pros: Follow up on previous review

Cons: Follow up on previous review

Other Thoughts: Through the work of several owners world wide, ASUS has made a firmware update to fix the known ghosting issue. Color and sharpness may also have been corrected. This latest firmware update in late May 2007 must be done by ASUS. Some who already recieved theirs back from RMA, report monitor is fixed. Mine is still at ASUS, waiting to be fixed.

1 out of 5 eggsGhosting and not 2ms monitor

Pros: same

Cons: same

Other Thoughts: Update on my previous review: I have a ATi x1950xt, and run at default 1680x1050 res. I have been gaming for many years now. I've tested several lcds. The previous poster who said there is now way this monitor can ghost, obviously does not know what to look for. Others who have said this and are explained about ghosting now see it. be an educated shopper and surf for reviews first.

1 out of 5 eggsGhosting and not a 2ms monitor

Pros: Great looking, good color, widescreen is worth the upgrade.

Cons: Ghosting, tearing, and not true 2ms. Those who say there is not ghosting do not know what to look for. It has been well documented in ASUS' own forum, as well as other forums like overclockersuk, where there are 21 pages of upset owners.

Other Thoughts: I and others have been in touch with ASUS about the issues. ASUS support is currently working to fix issue, but has yet to come up with one. The current fix was to change the default overdrive to OFF. New mfg runs of Nov06 and newer ship with OD turned off. You can only access this via a hidden menu. This is not a 2ms monitor as advertised. Dont be fooled, search forums and read up before buying.
