Excerpt: I use this monitor primarily for photo and video editing. It is a great monitor, good color setting right out of box, and with a very useful speaker build into which would satisfy for most of daily uses.
Excerpt: My 8 year old Dell 2707WFP 27" monitor was starting to show its age (discoloured screen, likely due to a failing polarizing filter), so after a month or two of research, I decided to purchase the PA279Q as a replacement.
Excerpt: Beautiful monitor with accurate color. My first monitor over 1080p and first with 10 bit color. Don't have it hooked up to a 10 bit Graphics card yet, but this monitor really shines. Love the stand too. Very sturdy, with ever adjustment you could want.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: I'm finally getting around to connecting this monitor to my brand new MacPro, and I'm so glad I chose to get this monitor. It's a great quality product, the colors are beautiful, I love the ergonomic design of it and I'm really looking forward to using it more.
Pros: Adjustable, Calibration Is Spot On, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Cons: Cords Aren't Labeled Well, Cords Are Not Labeled Wel, Patch Required, Poor Set Up Documentation, Speakers Aren't Awesome
Excerpt: I bought this monitor to replace a calibrated CRT monitor that I had used primarily for PhotoShop editing. I wanted to retain color accuracy, but with a larger, higher resolution monitor. First, I'm completely satisfied with the unit itself.
Pros: Adjustable, Color accuracy, High Resolution, Includes Hood, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Very Adjustable, Vivid Colors
Cons: Asus Online Forms, Useless Quick Start Guide
Beautiful monitor for photography. Be sure your video card has DisplayPort connection.

Summary: I think this is a great monitor. I am a photographer, and use three screens on my computer. I can see a significant difference when comparing a photo displayed on this screen next to an ordinary screen. The color space is larger, which allows much subtler gradation in color shading.
Summary: The tech specs of the monitor are seriously incomplete. Some of the eye and related problems mentioned by some reviewers may well be due to sensitivity to the PWM (pulse width modulation) used with many, though not all, LED monitors.
