Pros: I got this monitor as a downsize from a HP lp2475w (which I bought for almost nothing), partly because I thought at the time a smaller monitor would be less cumbersome. The color is impressive, though it involves a bit of tinkering if you're meticulous (check other reviews). That said, it's ideal for certain images.

The pivot/swivel works pretty seamlessly too. Also, for the connectors on the back, you're getting a nice deal here.

Cons: Oh boy, where to begin. The speakers are awful, but no one buys these for the speakers right?

The color options don't really seem to change much, or lack the ability to be precise (a bit too plain for the price and intent of the monitor). I imagine many people buying a monitor like this NEED precision with color that they see.

Why the 2 eggs out of 5, you might wonder? Well only a few months in, I suddenly had a red tint appear on the right side of the screen (red lines moving under the screen to be exact). I checked with several different connectors, cables weren't an issue (HDMI, DP, DVI). I tried the laptop on a friend's monitor, no red tint there!

Ultimately it seemed something internal in the monitor was failing. As I write, I'm seeming the same red tint on the right side of the monitor.

Other Thoughts: Ultimately I switched back to the HP lp2475w. It's just not easy to lose the screen real estate from 24" to 23", and it might seem ridiculous, but it's noticeable. Plus, the old HP just can connect to anything.

Despite the 2 eggs, I didn't dislike this product. I like ASUS (my laptop is a g55vw), I'm building a new pc with a X79 Sabertooth Mobo, but unfortunately this monitor went bad. I would have RMA'd it, but it wasn't worth the trouble at the beginning of my graduate school's first year. Also, the monitor went bad past Newegg's RMA date.

Better luck next time!
