4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price.

Pros: Fast response rate, good for gaming, very stable and adjustment friendly stand.

Cons: The picture quality is not that great. I have to adjust several times before I can play Far Cry 4. The color is somewhat kind of dark. Also, the viewing angle is limited and I can see washed out color (Don't really bother me at all though). Also, the build-in speaker is not as loud as I thought. I always set it to max volume and still have difficult time to hear sometimes. In additional, after hours of gaming, the fan inside the monitor starts to get a little noisy.

Other Thoughts: It is still very good monitor though. All of those cons don't bother me that much but if you want the best monitor out there for gaming, then this is not the one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 27 inches, 144hz, 3D bonus.

Cons: Power cable tends to be hard to work when you plug into the monitor power slot, but it isn't bothering me.

Other Thoughts: This monitor was worth every single penny, I used a 60hz 32-inch TV as my previous monitor (my brother uses it now) and this ASUS monitor is a huge upgrade to my PC gaming experience, I'd recommend this to any PC gamer out there, and the 3D is a huge bonus, 2D gaming is great as well. Even though nvidia 3D is almost $100 more, it was also worth it to make a great experience

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent gaming monitor

Pros: I mainly play BF4, and the increased refresh rate has a noticeable impact on my game. The performance using the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 is very smooth for the most part.

I thoroughly recommend this for any enthusiast looking into buy high end hardware.

I used to play on an 60Hz IPS panel before, and I did not notice any degradation in colors.

Cons: Viewing angle is not that great, but that doesn't bother me.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: wonderful monitor.. 144hz really shows its smoothness and accuracy in fps's over my old 60hz.

Cons: don't expect to rely on the internal speakers. I cant even hear voices clearly at the highest audio output setting.. volume sound is very low and muffled. Buy speakers or headset.

Other Thoughts: awesome for Fps's with fast motion.

4 out of 5 eggs3D Awesome Sauce

Pros: 3D gaming...which is really super groovy. Amazing actually. Adjustable stand, which is also mighty nice.

Cons: Make sure you aren't facing a window with direct sunlight, some ghosting, not awful if you download HeliX mods...speakers are pretty cheesy, but we all knew that coming in, right? Buy some real speakers.

Other Thoughts: I love it I love it it works great and I love it. OK, note, 3D Vision does have shader issues for almost every game, so you WILL have to download the HeliX mods to fix the shadows, because that will ruin your Skyrim business for sure. Trust me though, those shader fixes WORK. Worth the time downloading the fixes, especially for Behthesda titles.

If you play Metro 2033 or Last Light, no shader fixes are necessary. At any rate, if you like your gaming to be fully immersive, and you have the money to go 3D Vision, and your graphics card supports it, GO FOR IT. This monitor is great, and heck, right now it's priced right, so go ahead and pull the trigger like I did a couple of months ago.

I currently playing a Super Modded Skyrim, and... well, to be honest, I WALK everywhere I go now because I really get off on wandering's like a hiking simulator, ha.

3 out of 5 eggsbuttons on bottom stopped working

Pros: screen looks great and handles all games very well

Cons: the unit seems to produce alot of heat and the buttons on bottom of unit that control everything from on/off to all adjustments just stopped working so now I can never turn monitor off as I will not be able to turn back on. Spent well over 45 minutes waiting to chaat with support and gave up

Other Thoughts: I really like the monitor just afraid that with it not working and not being able to get support online I am worried of how long it will survive and at this price point is not at all what I was expecting from asus
