5 out of 5 eggsHands down one of the best monitors for the money

Pros: This monitor, first of all, is enormous. It's been quite the shift getting used to this monster sitting on my desk compared to the small CRT monitor I used to have. Bright colors, awesome contrast. Good speakers for built ins, and an awesome refresh rate.

Cons: Literally nothing

Other Thoughts: There was just one stuck pixel on the entire display, but it was easily fixed with a pixel-fixer website and the "tap method."

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great monitor yes it does take some adjustments to the settings right out of the box but it takes 10mins to do so and the results are great.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Rocks

Pros: Color,Presets,AdaptersQuality,looks.Theses are just a couple of things you will love about this monitor.Plus the price is the iceing on the cake. If your looking for a nice size monitor with a fantastic image,You will be very satisfied with this one. I also have a 25 inch Asus that is just as good, plus a 24 and 23.6 in my house. I have no reason to look at any other monitor than Asus. Have used many over the years and Asus is all I buy now and recommend to any I build a system for.

Cons: None I can think of. Some complain about the stand or were the buttons are. I have never had a prob with either!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent video quality

Pros: Everything you'd expect from a good brand monitor - crisp video, bright colors, excellent refresh rate, etc. Absolutely zero complaints about the image quality. Built-in speakers work through HDMI, eliminate the audio cable. Input switch via button (as opposed to digging through a menu) lets you troubleshoot setup issues quickly.

Cons: The built-in speakers, although better than typical built-in speakers in cheaper monitors, are still nowhere near an actual pair of Altec Lansings or Creatives on your desk. Keep that in mind if you're planning on listening to music or playing games. Controls could use some improvement - couple of status LED's and maybe 1-2 more physical buttons instead of adding layers to the menu.

Other Thoughts: I've been buying ASUS monitors for about 6 years now, and expect to keep buying them for at least as long in the future. Always a solid value for the $$$, never disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggs27 inch ASUS monitor

Pros: Using two of these in a three monitor setup. I bit heavier than the newest LED monitors, but is made very well and has VESA adapter and the stand is easily removed. I have this in a 2 monitor swivel desktop stand as part of 3 monitor setup and it is working well. Fast refresh, good color and good crisp text. For the price it can't be beat. I do not use the speakers. Also have pretty small profile so not bad for multi monitor setup. Made very well.

Cons: It is a bit heavy if using VESA 2 monitor stand like I am using.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Cheap
Picture Holds up

Cons: Cheap construction
2 years out of date
Horrible dot pitch

Other Thoughts: I came to look for a new monitor, I currently own this one and am underwhelmed by the picture.

Sure its bright, sure it has better colors than LCDs.

It requires 4x MSAA because 27" 1080p is too grainy.

Presently this monitor falls short to the competition based on price
