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.
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.
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)
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'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 !
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!
I got this monitor for my brother who was using a Samsung monitor that went haywire and kept switching through sources. I've been a strong Asus supporter and have bought a whole range of products from Asus and they have all worked for me for a very long time. The monitor is fairly inexpensive compared to most 27in monitors. The color calibration straight out of the box seemed very well done but could use a bit of tweaking depending on what the room conditions are. The color balance seems a bit off but you could easily fix that with your GPU software.
