Pros: Bright and vivid colors, blacks, and whites. Details are sharp and crisp. NO motion blur or image ghosts even in high speed FPS games (Quake, Doom, Battlefield, etc). Not a single bum pixel or other defect. Several standard color adjustment modes accessible with a single button. Nice, clean, modern case appearance with very small footprint. Easy set-up and go right out of the box, used included DVI cable and did not need to do any additional configuring or driver updating with my once-great, now ancient BFG 6800 Ultra OC video card.

Cons: Text fonts look funny at any resolution lower than the native 1920x1200. I like the native resolution but my wife prefers larger text so this annoys her. Probably a way to fix it but I am too obsessed with playing my favorite games on this baby to waste a minute figuring it out. The menu system for making adjustments outside the standard presets is a bit awkward with a lot of button fumbling involved, but not too bad once you catch on.

Overall Review: Took me a long time to go flat-panel because I could not stand the image blurring and ghosting I could see in fast games on 5ms and even 3ms monitors. But my beloved Sony 24" widescreen CRT finally bit the dust so I gave this Asus a try. The crisp images, vivid colors, and fast 2ms response will satisfy even the most demanding FPS game players. I did not really shop around much so I cannot speak about the price, but I am 100% satisfied with the quality of this monitor. To hell with my wife, all she does is email and Webkinz on it anyway.
