5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Monitor

Pros: I love how the monitor will swing a total 90 degree angle for a portrait or landscape option. I purchased two at the same time and I had no issues with either one. Its a great size and a great piece of equipment for the price.

Cons: I should of bought one more for my wife LOL

4 out of 5 eggsGood product but don't expect a rebate.

Pros: This screen is just beautiful. Gaming and other daily tasks has been a joy with this monitor. The matte finish helps with glare that typical monitors tend to give. The color and contrast is superb. You can't tell that this is only 1920x1080 ( we were considering a higher res 27") because of the wonderful contrast. A great buy if you don't want to shell out a lot of money for a 27".

Cons: - No DVI
- ASUS makes it difficult to get rebate

Other Thoughts: **This does not reflect the service given by Newegg but only ASUS.

I have had good, easy experiences with receiving mail-in rebates with other companies. So obviously I thought 'Yeah no biggie, ASUS is a reputable company'. Well I was proven wrong and I am absolutely appalled with the customer service I have been given. I followed the instructions to the tee. I received an email saying that my invoice was not approved.... what? Really? They scanned and posted the documents they have received from me on my tracking link and I personally found nothing wrong with them. So I sent them ANOTHER copy of my invoice. Low and behold, I was still denied saying that my UPC code was missing. Hello?? I sent it the first time and ASUS had it scanned as part of received documents. Later they had updated the documents so my UPC label magically "disappeared" but I still had an email confirmation with the UPC number. So I forwarded them that email confirming they have the UPC label but was declined again. I wrote them several times and instead of actually reading what I had to say they replied back with the typical "Please follow the instructions". Yes I followed the directions, I know how to read okay. They disregarded what I had written in my email and replied as if I was at fault. They then told me to call their customer service line. No thanks. I'd rather eat the $30 rebate than to speak with ASUS.

In other words, if you buy an item from ASUS that claims to give a rebate.... do not look forward to getting one.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Color and Contrast

Pros: Out of the box the monitor settings were perfect. The default color, brightness, and contrast were set correctly. The corner-to-corner backlighting is very evenly balanced. Also, this monitor has great adjustability for height and viewing angle. Of all the 27" (and 24") monitors I've purchased in the last 2 years this is my favorite.

Cons: None.

Cons: dead on arrival, no picture. customer support was a little weak as well. the supplied hdmi cables also couldn't handle connection to my new macbook pro retina (wide hdmi to small hdmi...instead of wide to wide).

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent monitor!

Pros: Very bright. Crisp images. Very good color. I use it to play FPS games like BF4 and CS:GO and notice no issues with the 60hz refresh rate or 5ms response time. No dead pixels either. Have it connected to an EVGA 760 GTX 4GB card.

Cons: Tried the Display port first because the cable was like 2 feet longer than the DVI to HDMI cable but the image was lousy. No amount of adjusting could correct it. As stated, the DVi to HDMI cable is very short so I had to rearrange my desk to compensate. I ordered a 10' cable from Newegg for about $12 so it's no big deal.

Other Thoughts: Asus, please lengthen the DVI/HDMI cable to at least equal the Display port cable!! :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Brought this monitor for my 12yr old for this first computer build and he loves it and so do I. This is a really good looking monitor, excellent color rendition, zero dead or stuck pixel, good amount of connection and easy menu buttons located on the back of the monitor. This monitor is also very good for playing games if you are a casual gamer. Very good calibration out the box, I did however calibrate the monitor and saw a very slight difference in color from calibrate to factory calibration.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice!

Pros: great display
Nice viewing angles
Came with a lot of cables that you may need

Cons: Not really a con but I wish this were a 1440p monitor considering the full price of it at the time of this review is 300bucks, or atleast I wish it was 120Hz refresh rate.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine as "open box" from newegg, note that on open box items some things may not be in the package that you will be receiving.
However I got lucky and the only thing that is actually missing is the mounting screws that you need to mount the stand on the monitor and that the other stuff like cables and the monitor itself are actually untouched with no sign of it even being removed in its original covers.

The screws I found with some research over google the size of the screws needed is M4-.7 x 16mm screws which are available at home depot for $.64/3pcs.

Another thing, I've found similar problems being encountered by users with Asus monitors is when you connect thru HDMI-DVI (HDMI on the monitor to DVI to your video card) people get a display that is not being shown on the entire monitor's screen, and it appears theres a black border on the edges instead of the display being used to its full size.

This is actually rather a simple problem as I encountered this problem with myself, I am using an AMD video card (R9 290X) and the way to make the display use all of the screen is when you go to the Catalyst center, on the left panel click on "My digital display" and then under that you click on the "Scaling options (Digital panel)" and on the overscan slider go you can adjust there the display to match your screen size. This applies for users who is having problems with their display not using the full size of their screen that are using AMD video cards. for Nvidia users I believe there is a similar options in their drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 27" monitor

Pros: Great monitor with a lot of input options. Huge morale and efficiency booster for the team.

Unlike other monitors, this monitor has height adjustment as well as title adjustment.

Cons: Rebate is limited to two pieces per order. I bought for the entire team.
