5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: This thing looks amazing! They packaged it extremely well, simple assembly of the base, it's everything I needed in a monitor!

Cons: The speakers do sound a little bit hollow and tinny, but if you're getting a monitor like this you're likely using some real speakers anyways. The built in headphone/mic ports in the monitor pretty much negate this completely, but if you're looking for high quality audio from your monitor, this isn't it.

Other Thoughts: The audio quality was such a non-issue for me, and in my opinion most people, so I couldn't take an egg off for it. Other than that I highly recommend this monitor!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Screen for a Good Price

Pros: clear

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a good monitor that has included speakers. Those are helpful when you want to show someone a video and not have them wear your headphones. I don't use the speakers for anything else since I mainly game.
Lots of constant usage and this unit has remained reliable.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Got it on Sale.
Plenty of desktop real estate with a great picture.
2X HDMI and 1x VGA give plenty of connection options.

Cons: Wish it were a bit cheaper so I can buy a second one!
Built in speakers sound just as tinny as you'd expect from monitor speakers

5 out of 5 eggsGood Specs BUT !!!!!!!!!

Pros: Has Very Good Spec's for the Price, I've been using mine for about 3 Months Off and On ( I have 3 Monitors ). I've probable used it equal to about 3 Full weeks, if it was the only Monitor I had.

Cons: The first time I turned it on there were about 6-9 Stuck Pixels, I just tapped on them with my fingernail and they became unstuck. That put me on Guard, but after about 3 weeks of use I haven't seen another Stuck or Dead Pixel..

Other Thoughts: After having a few Stuck pixels the first time I turned on the monitor, ever since than when I turn on the Monitor I look for bad Pixels, I would of sent it back after the first I turned it on and had a few stuck pixels. But It comes with a 3yr, Free Shipping Both ways, so I am keeping a Close Eye on the pixels and so far it was just that initial Startup that Showed the few stuck pixels. Otherwise it has a GOOD PICTURE and SOUND..

5 out of 5 eggsAsus 27" Monitor

Pros: I have had this monitor for about a year and have not been disappointed. I use this monitor as my primary computer display as well as my tv on the rare occasion I watch regular tv. I have an hdmi from my verizon TV box to this monitor and a DVI from my computer to this monitor, allowing for easy switching back and forth. The picture quality is amazing and the 2ms response time makes everything look incredible with no ghosting or blurred images or video. And so far I have not had an ounce of trouble with this monitor. I hope to be able to say that again in a few years. Thanks ASUS, I am very happy with all of your products. I am looking to buy a new laptop now and would really like to make it another ASUS because all the products seem to last.

Cons: The built in speakers are pretty awful, which I guess is to be expected. They are very small and very low power. But it is easy enough to plug in external speakers and away you go. I use them for watching TV once in a while and of course have separate speakers hooked up to my computer which is what I use this monitor for mostly. I can't think of any other cons.

Other Thoughts: Good value for the money and an amazing picture. If you want amazing sound though, you may be disappointed. Be prepared to use external speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent monitor - Good value

Pros: Excellent picture quality. A very large monitor at a very reasonable cost through Newegg.

Cons: Although the screen itself is matte (good), the bezel is very shiny (bad). I have no idea why Asus made the bezel shiny; you just see reflections in it like a mirror and dust and fingerprints show very clearly.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing Defects

Pros: Physically looks identical to the DVI version of this monitor (which I own and like).

No dead pixels.

Cons: 1st issue was a washed-out look; blacks were grey and overall it just looked desaturated. I played with settings to no avail. I found some comments online blaming the HDMI, saying that it is defaulting to RGB (correctly) but that the HDMI only works properly in CMYK mode. I switched this in my Nvidia Control Panel and boom, perfect picture. 3 hours killed right there.

2nd issue was that my power button stopped working, and all the other buttons now behave like a power-button. Menu turns it on and off, up and down do the same, etc. Power button = nothing.

3rd issue is that it periodically loses power/connectivity. There appears to be no physical trigger for it, just random. I'll just be browsing and boom, black screen. Or I'll turn it on to nothing.

Frustrating and disappointing. I will not be buying any more monitors that don't have at least one DVI port.

Other Thoughts: 2-eggs instead of 1 because I think this is an isolated issue with this individual monitor, rather than a brand issue. My other DVI version of this same monitor is great.

5 out of 5 eggsLegit monitor

Pros: This monitor looks great. I had 3 23" Acer IPS displays before. They had better viewing angles but the colors and picture did not look nearly as good as this monitor. The 27" with 1080 might be weird for some but for me I think it's fine. I don't notice any crazy pixelation or anything. It has 100x100 VESA mounts and also has 2 HDMI ports.

Cons: It would be cool to be able to adjust the height but you can do whatever if you get VESA mounts. Menu is kinda weird to navigate with the buttons but I've seen worse. It has meh speakers but what else do you expect.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale for around $170 and I'm glad I did. I don't think I would have bought it otherwise.

3 out of 5 eggs2 Dead pixels

Pros: Nice LED screen, good size, picture quality is good

Cons: After 1 month I got 1 dead pixel and 3 months after I got another one.
so I have 2 dead pixels

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I didn't contacted ASUS because I saw in the comments that they don't care about dead pixels and according to the warranty up to 3 dead pixels is OK. .. so It's not...
