Good price for a 27' monitor
A wide range to adjust its setting
Too big.... not!
It's a big upgrade for me from a 18.5' wide screen acer. It feels a bit too big in the beginning, but it isn't too hard to get used to it after awhile. I prefer my monitor to be dimmer so it doesn't hurt my eyes, and surprisingly this monitor can be dimmed pretty well just the way I like it. I haven't got the chance to try out the speakers, but this monitor is really awesome so far. One thing that bothers me though... my desk isn't big enough to put it further :).

-Good price for a 27" monitor
-Fast response time
-Only 1080p
-Does not wake from standby mode
I got this at the great sale price of $240. It's good for watching movies and TV shows but for gaming I would recommend getting a higher resolution monitor if you want to play games at high details with all the eye candy enabled.

A very annoying issue is that the monitor will not wake from standby mode when you press a key on the keyboard or move the mouse. The only way is to turn the monitor off, then on, or to press either the Input select  or SPLENDID/Adjust Button(I can't remember which one right now, off the top of my head).

This is still a great monitor to use for the time being until the prices for higher resolution 27" and 30" monitors come down.

Good value, Boxing week sale
Needed calibration out of the box
As I get older my eyes aren't so good so I bought a 27" monitor. I was going to by one with a higher resolution in the end I figured that the 1920x1080 would be alright. Once I set the monitor up I quickly realized I should have spent the money and got the higher resolution.

For the money this is a good value. I have had to spend time calibrating the monitor because out of the box the picture was off

-nice and BIG!
-easy to calibrate
-excellent overall picture
-speakers are not great
Love this monitor. Went from a 22" Samung to this and couldnt be happier.

Good Colors
A bit pricier than other 27" models.
This is a good monitor with excellent colors and brightness.
I have not tried the speakers.
Viewing angles are good but not great.

Excellent Picture Quality, Good Color Reproduction, No issues with motion at all
Relatively thick compared to a lot of leds,Large HDMI Logo in top left of monitor, Single dead pixel out of the box.
The quality is fantastic aside from the single dead pixel (have not attempted to repair yet). No issues with motion on the couple games and videos I tried. Cant comment on the speakers or the stand as neither will be used. The HDMI logo in the top left is oversized and detracts from the monitors overall clean appearance. Overall very happy with the monitor, Will end up with 2 more eventually (once NCIX decides to find the payment for my 2nd Ill consider ordering a 3rd)

All types of connectivity. DP, DVI, HDMI, VGA.
Big & bright.
Simple set-up. Menus are quite intuitive.
ASUS reputation
I got two of these and I have to say they are both better than I was hoping. No buyers remorse whatsoever. No dead pixels on either. No frills simplicity but they still look great. I was told that TN Panels don't look the same depending on your viewing angle but my eyes can't detect any deficiencies from any angle.

I was very surprised by the weight. Deceptiviely light. My almost decade old 18" Dell 4:3 LCD weighs much more.

My only complaint is the lack of USB. I just like to be able to quickly plug a USB cable into my monitor and not need to have an extra hub acting as a dust magnet on the desktop.

That aside - - a great product. Well done ASUS.

- Excellent quality for the price
- Very accurate color reproduction (enough to do graphic design and editing)
- Excellent responsiveness for a 60 Hz monitor thanks to "Trace free" option
- Adjustements are very usable and handy
- Gorgeous size !!!
- Poor vertical angle of view
- Not the best contrast ratio on the market (but excellent for the price target though)
- No integated webcam
- Almost not flimsy stand... but definitely a bit too small
I've just moved from a excellent, 22 inches Samsung screen to this Asus 27 inches monitor. I've compared both side by side and the difference is stunning. The contrasts and the color reproduction are very good. Watching movie adjusting the Trace free option is a real pleasure and makes you almost feel like you're using a 120 Hz monitor for a much more decent price. All in all, a very good choice for the price !

Very bright
Picture In Picture mode
Quality of material used
Base not ajustable except for Angling the Screen as shot in pictures above
Base not high enough to my taste
This is great quality screen for a good price. I would recommend that who ever buy this item to also purchase a Mount arm so that you can truly adjust it to your taste.

-good price for the size
-the built in speakers are nice for people with space issues
-lots of inputs
-viewing angles not the best
-resolution is a bit low for this size
picked this monitor up for my new gaming rig as we had purchased several of these at work and thought they were good bang for the buck. A big steph up from my old LG 20" lcd. One of my favourite features is actually the built-in speakers, I had no idea this had them until I had already ordered it - and it's great for people like me who live in a small apartment with a tiny computer desk and don't want to be wearing headphones constantly. the 1080p resolution actually seems a bit low for a monitor this size, but for gaming it can actually be a good thing as you can play with maxed out settings at native resolution, instead of having to decide between non-native res or non-maxed out settings. The colour reproduction seems good, and the menu is easy to use. As it is a TN panel, the viewing angles are noticeably poor, but if you're using it for straight-on gaming its mostly a non-issue. Regardless, a good value - especially if you can get it on sale or open boxed!
