Excerpt: The monitor is very good, but it has a problem when using two monitors. When the Asus monitor is my main display, it sometimes does not function correctly when being woken up from sleep. There will be rainbow lines across the monitor. This does not happen when it is the secondary display.
Summary: First comes the excitement... then a big disappointment. I was very impressed by the display quality of this monitor. It was so pleasing to look at that I was even looking forward to come home and doing some work on it. The colors are crisp and bright but easy to look at - no eye strain.
Summary: I bought this monitor a few months ago. I had high hopes for it. When I first used the monitor I heard a high pitched noise, which would get louder when the monitor was on standby. I thought I could live with it if I just turned the monitor off instead.
Summary: The color was great, but it had a lot of backlight bleed. On a very dark screen the corners were obviously different. It also had viewing angle issues, if you move your head from side to side the edges would look different. The matte finish was also a bit too glossy, which did not help.
Summary: I ordered this monitor after extensively research for 24-27" monitor. I almost purchased NEC but it's not sold by Amazon and quite pricey. Based on good reviews here so I gave it a try. Like another comment, my monitor generated high pitch noise at the first plug in.
Summary: The number of monitors in the market today is really mindboggling, perhaps unnecessary. Numerous price points, numerous sizes, display technologies, etc. I am a hobbyist photographer and wanted to upgrade from my 8 year old Acer P221W.
Summary: Liked build quality, but watch out for sharp like knife corners - I got a nice bleeding scratch while handling it. I tried 2 monitors but all had substantial back-light bleeding from lower corners. IPS glow is too apparent.
Summary: I really wanted to love this monitor. The price point is great for a higher-end monitor. It's a wide gamut, factory precalibrated model. I bought two, and the colors were indistinguishable straight out of the box, and images are very attractive and natural.
Summary: I get this horrible high-pitched whine when the monitor is in sleep mode. I hate it. I'd try to get it replaced, but the amount it'd cost me to ship it back to NCIX/Asus for a replacement and the fact that the monitor is perfect otherwise just makes me suck it up. Oh well... Oh!
Quality isn't what you'd expect from the high price

Summary: The thing I noticed immediately when I received my first monitor and turned it on was that the bottom left corner and bottom edge of the display had a sickly green glow. This isn't very impressive for a monitor sold at a premium price with claims about its excellent colour accuracy written all over...
