Summary: Great monitor. I was hesitant at first because of the comments about the border but it looks superb and I love it. Actually ordering another one now full a dual set up. If you wondering to pull the trigger, do it!
Summary: I bought this for my wife's Mac Mini and she (in particular!) loves it. Very crisp, clear screen, excellent design. We considered a Samsung but this is a prettier and better performing HDMI screen in my opinion. Only complaint is that the buttons to change options and turn the screen on and off are touch activated and not true 'tactile' (i.e. clear indentations) and take a little getting used to.
Excerpt: Great monitor , with AH-IPS , the quality of this monitor is at its best. With a sleek design of border less monitor and the weight of it is only 8.2lbs which is quite light. And the button is all sensors, just have to touch the button lightly to operate the button. BHphoto did a great job packing this monitor, the original box with an extra box with airbags is probably a bit overkill, but it gives the extra safety and you can see the effort Bhphoto staffs are giving.
Summary: After 1 year: This is still the best looking monitor out there for under $300 I have had no issues with it at all after 1 year of heavy usage. The picture quality is amazing and there is no lag or ghosting with any of the games I have played (Crysis, Assassin's Creed, NBA 2K15, Bioshock, Payday 2, etc...) I do have my PC connected to my 55" TV but sometimes I still prefer to play on this monitor because the picture quality on this IPS panel is just better.
Summary: I've had this for 1 week now. It is beautiful. Picture quality is top notch. Nice amount of inputs, including 2 HDMI's. Sound is nice for a monitor with built in speakers. The frame around the screen is extremely thin.. Beautifully made. Great quality. My only negative on this is that the frame is so narrow, which is perfect; however when you turn on the monitor there is about 1/2 inch of black around the frame, which is black, which is actually a part of the frame...
Summary: This monitor has treated me very well over the past year, and I still love. Out of the box, the colors are very true to life, but I prefer to up the saturation levels a tiny bit.Overall, the aesthetics to this monitor are outstanding. I have to give some props to Asus for the overall build quality of this monitor. It feels very sturdy and is rather solid to the touch.
Summary: Everything on the left and right edges of the screen is dark. Text is blurry in some games even after running auto setup multiple times. Even at 100% brightness and contrast everything (including the stuff in the middle of the screen) still seems dark. I really regret purchasing this and will likely attempt to return it.
