Excerpt: I do like the monitor, and trusted the pre-calibration claim. However, since then, I have learned that what is on my screen was not on the other monitors or printers - in fact it was very, very different. Did a test. It was way off.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Portrait Or Landscape, Sharp Image, Sturdy, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: The ASUS screen performance for color display is first rate for this price range. The 4 port USB 3 hub works great with an HDMI input to drive a pair of decent USB speakers. Operating in Yosemite, once the screen has gone to sleep, it loses color control if you select your own desktop -- when...
Best monitor I've ever owned... if only it didn't have one problem.

Summary: Lots of features (namely the 1:1 pixel feature that shows different resolutions at the correct aspect ratio instead of stretching things out), great/accurate color reproduction (the factory calibration is unreal), has lots of hardware bells and whistles like USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and so on, nice...
Summary: ASUS' quality control is pretty bad. The monitor I got from Newegg had horrible backlight bleeding from the corners, mixed in with IPS glow. I returned that monitor, and proceeded to go to a local computer store to buy two more (Two because I know one of them is going to be another lemon).
Pros: USB 3.0 Hub, comes with DisplayPort cables, very sturdy stand with pivot, swivel, and tilt. Build quality is decent,. Fast response times compared to others (Dell U2412M for example). Color Calibrated. Great resolution. AG coating isn't aggressive at all. Colors do not shift as viewing angle chan...
Cons: Backlight bleeding, viewing angles are not exactly 178, IPS glow is very apparent. Huge variance in quality
Summary: Overall, happy with the visual quality of this monitor. I wanted IPS. I wanted 1920x1200 at least and this provides it. Great visual quality but online comments abound regarding DVI signal/blinking issues. I haven't noticed this though.
Pros: 16:10 resolution. IPS. Tilt and pivot. Professional Grade
Cons: complaints online regarding bleeding backlight/DVI blinking problems. USB hub problem ends up damaging flash drives plugged in.
Excerpt: My old Samsung 2230 was becoming difficult to calibrate, so I decided to purchase a new monitor for photo-editing. Photography is a hobby for me; I wanted to stay well below the $1000+ price of top-notch dedicated photo-editing monitors.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
