Summary: Great picture, price and performance. The only thing that needs to be changed is the speakers. The picture is very clear and precise with accurate colors. The use of this is a graphic designer, and she is able to differentiate between everything very clearly. Worth every penny, just buy better external speakers.
Summary: I have 2 of these monitors running on the DisplayPort settings and have found them to be fantastic units. The image is far superior to either DVI or HDMI units of larger size. The image is clearer, brighter, has more contrast and is significantly sharper than anoy other monitors. One thing though, don't be fooled by people talking up these monitors, they DO NOT have the (or nearly so) same viewing area as a 25" monitor.
Summary: The monitor was great, out of the box. All I did was hook up the HDMI cable and I was good to go. The built in speakers are just built in speakers, but very adequate for my needs. I use the monitor for mostly email, office work, and financial data. I am very satisfied with the ASUS monitor.
Summary: Bought 2 to have multiple displays. Setup was very easy and the picture is great. I don't do a lot of gaming or detailed graphics, so the pictures looks great to me. Speakers are adequate, not great, but I don't use for music or other things that require great speakers.
