5 out of 5 eggsBRING THIS BACK TO NEWEGG!!!

Pros: This monitor is simply gorgeous. The white back is stunning. People are saying the 1080 resolution with HDMI has the black border, but this problem is easily fixed. I had the problem and I fixed it through catalyst control panel. Also the stand really is not a problem. I enjoy it being different from everything else. And the angle is supposed to be angled back, it is talked about on Asus's website. I love this thing.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine from Ama-zon because newegg does not carry it anymore. I use it as my second monitor and if newegg ever reopens this, I will buy another from newegg as a third monitor. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb monitor

Pros: - Ultra Slim, stand kind of props it up from the back instead of from the bottom. This was crucial in my purchase choice because I use one of those ancient cabinet desks which a normal monitor with a standard stand would not fit.

- Gorgeous color

- Sexy black gloss finish, price is great but design screams "bling!"

Cons: - If you are planning on using this as a second monitor mounted higher then your sitting level, this is not for you because the back-stand design means the monitor can only tilt upwards and never downwards.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS MS226H

Pros: Wife likes the design and especially the color (white). I bought this for her PC build.

Cons: Panel controls are not easy to use. Montior stand (plastic loop in rear) slides, allowing the monitor to tilt on its own. More importantly, I am unable to use the high resolution under Windows 7. I am using an ATI 5770 card. In 1920x1080 I don't have a full screen (there is a ~1/2" black boarder). I have no option but to reduce resolution to 1680x1050 to get full screen. ASUS technical service reported to me: "We do not have any monitor driver, our LCD monitors is Plug&Play in Win2K / WinXP / Vista 32bit / Vista 64bit/Windows 7/Windows 7 64bit. So it doesn't need LCD monitor driver. You could use this monitor in default settings in your operation system with the standard resolution."
Note that Windows 7 driver menus so no monitors under ASUS. If I knew this, I would not have purchased this monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: got this when it was 145$. that said, full 1080p, quite large, great image and color quality, 2ms response, looks good siting on the desk, the buttons are cool as in there not buttons but sensors, super thin, no frozen pixels.

Cons: as many have said the stand is horrible. doesn't tip forward enough, so i propped it on a cd case but doesn't make it very stable. not enough for me to dock an egg because of the price and picture quality

Other Thoughts: also very durable, due to my cd case rig it has fallen 3 times, once all the way off the desk and twice forward onto the screen and still works perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsExceptionsl!!!

Pros: The image quality is great on hdmi. It is crisp and quite sexy looking. the heat sensitive buttons are easy enough to get used to. The menus are decent and i like teh innovative circle stand but..................

Cons: the stand itself is not strong for teh monitor and the book solution mention works quite well. also u might have to tweak the picture in the menus to get your preferences.

Other Thoughts: If u like the price get this baby. I had no dead pixels and love my monitor

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: I love this Monitor!!! Such a great jump from my 17" CRT =D A must buy for anyone looking for a cheap 1080p screen.

Cons: The stand kinda scares me. Seems a little wobbly. But with limited traffic around your workplace/home area, It should be just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsSpectacular!

Pros: The retail box this thing comes in is very durable and it is packed well. Product arrived undamaged within the next business day on UPS 3 day shipping (thank you NewEgg for your consistently fast processing and order fulfillment).

I started it up and checked for dead pixels which there were none. The HDMI input into my computer works perfectly on my nVidia video card (when I was researching I saw some ATI users have to change a setting to get it to work right, please do research before rating this poorly.).

I had heard of a problem on the 23" monitor regarding the audio output when HDMI is providing the audio (such when you would play your PS3 on it and use the audio output on the monitor to go to speakers). Alas I played my PS3 and the audio was great.

Cons: The stand... eeeeeeeeeeverybody hates the stand and the fact that there are no wall mounts. I actually never installed the stand - my monitor simply leans up against the wall and sits on my desk which works fine, in fact it gives me more room than my old monitor.

Other Thoughts: I came into this purchase well educated thanks to NewEgg and customer reviews which is why I did not fault an egg for the stand. This is a great monitor and you won't really understand how small your current monitor is until you use this baby!
