5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, very good pixel density.

Pros: Good pixel density for being 1080P
Nice colour replication and good contrast.
Matte surface stops reflections.

Cons: Uneven backlight, top is darker than the bottom.
Default settings were terrible.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend for anyone looking for a good 1080P monitor. It's just a TN monitor, not IPS, so black colours or darker scenes in games like Tomb Raider or GTA V are slightly grey.
Overall a very good purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Monitor for price

Pros: Great size, price and advertised features that do work.

Cons: Very bad horizontal tearing in games when V-sync is turned off sometimes in movies as well with large moving action scenes. Much worse than my smaller monitors. I supose that is to be expected with a 27" model though, The 72hz max refresh rate only works at resolutions of 800x600 or less. Again this is to be expected so 60hz max at 1080p. I used to use this monitor as my main gaming rig monitor for its size. I recently upgraded it to a another 27" with 1440p and 144hz. This monitor now is my secondary pc movie watching/streaming/media center PC unit. It does an ok job with Blu-Ray's and streaming netflix and such but honestly my 1080i 50" Plasma tv looks much better so I cannot recommend this unit for someone planning to use it as a tv or media center monitor.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad monitor at all, as I said I used it as a daily driver for a couple of years and was fine with it. A few months ago I really got the itch to upgrade so i did a lot of research and found an new one. I give it 4 stars because I have never had a single issue with this unit, never a dead pixel, never a failure to come on when turned on, never as much as a hiccup other than all the horizontal tearing about 1/4 from the top of the screen on almost every game(sometimes even with v-sync on and thats why I didnt give it 5 stars) This is a good daily use monitor for people doing light gaming and standard net browsing and the like.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat when it worked properly

Pros: Huge monitor

Cons: DVI ports have both failed

Other Thoughts: When monitor was 4 months old first DVI port failed when at 6 month second port failed. It only works as an analog monitor. I contacted ASUS for replacement but I was ignored.

5 out of 5 eggsGot on sale, couldn't be beat, especially how early it came.

Pros: I have always set high standards for my Asus products, and this is no exception. This monitor is crisp, massive and even looks good on the outside. It is very bright which may bother people but it doesn't bother me. This thing is gigantic. I used to use an old 17" 4:3 monitor in 16:9 aspect ratio, but now I feel like I'm playing on a Ultrawide monitor.

Another awesome thing is that even with 4-7 business day shipping, I got mine about 72 after purchase. Good job UPS!

Cons: Bright, doesn't bother me but if it does you can turn it down in the menu.
Huge, it's good but you might need to rearrange your desk - if you have a small desk, don't buy a 27" monitor though.

Other Thoughts: This is my first review on Newegg, and I plan on doing more for my PC parts, some people got defective ones (dead pixels, etc.) but mine came in just fine. No problems, solid build, almost easy menu and bright. Right now I'm on an old laptop, runs this monitor at 1366x768 and it makes me mad because I wanted the full 1980x1080 resolution this monitor has native. I also can only run games at low settings so thats a bummer as well - be prepared Newegg, I'm buying parts soon!

This is my first review, hope it wasn't too scattered.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Flawlessly w/ Linux!

Pros: I needed more desktop space and I definitely got it with this honker! Worked flawlessly with an up to date Arch system(It's sad that I should fear something like a monitor not working). It also came with all the relevant cables, including hdmi to dvi.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Alot of people here are claiming about ambiguous display configuration problems, like it's too bright, or the colors being off. I haven't played games in years, and I'm not a videophile. To me, this monitor looks great, and I just use redshift(f.lux for you sad fools using windows) to lower the brightness. It displays multiple terminal windows and HD video just fine. Why do you need anything else?

4 out of 5 eggsGreat large screen at its price.

Pros: No dead pixels, in use ever day for over 2 years now. Several modes to choose from so that almost everyone should be able to find a setting they like with few tweaks. Relatively small footprint. 2ms response time and 10ms input lag time is very good but its hard for me to tell a difference in response time as long as the lag time isnt too bad.

Cons: Being a large screen the tearing in some games is nearly unbearable. The screen itself is matte but the bezel is glossy... super glossy. It acts as a mirror for any glare or other light source so it kills immersion in gaming when the lights are on. Also when the monitor first arrived and I was putting it together the screws for adjustment were so tight I had to use pliers to straighten it up. This led to some minor scratches and scraped off paint.

Other Thoughts: I would have given this monitor 5 stars if not for the bezel and having to leave permanent marks and scrapes on it just to get the thing straight. The tearing has been an issue since I switched from an old crt monitor so I cant deduct points for that. I knew it would happen. All in all though this monitor has been great for the last 2 years. Its about time to jump up to a 144/120 hz 1440p monitor for me so I will be using this one on my media PC. I will probably come back and edit this after using it for movies/tv shows for a while.

3 out of 5 eggsBefore buying

Pros: This product is a very nice and so far reliable product even without current drivers.
I have always held Asus to be a very good choice for computer hardware.

Cons: There is only one problem I have with this product. This would be when I bought this product I was under the impression that I would have drivers for it via disk or an internet available source "without having to buy a program to do so", I was wrong... With several attempts with several sources, including Asus's home driver site, I can not seem to get current drivers and my OS, Win 7 pro, still wants to consider this product a generic device.

Other Thoughts: NO... I do not want to buy 3rd party software to keep a product I bought up to date, nor do I want to use pirated software drivers.
I still hold Asus at a very good choice for computer hardware.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought this monitor to replace my old 21.5" I had been using. This monitor is absolutely perfect! It was a little bright, but there are 6 preset settings that you can easily switch from, or you can fine tune it to what you like. The thing I like the most about it though is that it has a really solid base that helps cut down on shaking if you bump your desk or have a wheel attached to your desk. Very good buy!

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsMy first monitor for console gaming

Pros: I love this clarity, color, and response times of this monitor. I had no idea that a monitor would make this much difference on my conose gaming and graphics. I just never thought that a smaller screen would ever replace my 46 inch led sony bravia tv. I never understood why someone would place games on a desk on a small monitor when they could sit on the couch with a huge screen. Now I understand.

Cons: I found out this little secret so late in my gsming . I wish I knew how much better monitors were over tvs before I purchased my expensive sony bravia led TV.
