Summary: If they are on sale for some reason I would recommend them. Don't expect the best sound out of the speakers, but they do work.
Pros: I have had 2 of these monitors for over 4 years now. I got a great price on them at the time and, honestly, I still love them. My wife has dual 27 inch monitors next to me and I am still not jealous. My monitors match for one thing. They are also crisp, great colors and responsive. Lots of output...
Summary: I've had this monitor for many years now. Bought it back in 2012 and works just as good as the first day I got it. Great monitor from Asus as always! This is a brand I will always stand behind.
Summary: I have used this monitor daily for nearly 4-1/2 years, and I have had zero problems with it. No dead pixels, good response time, sharpness and color are very good. Of course it needs to be calibrated for color-sensitive graphics work; all monitors do, in my experience.
Summary: I bought three of these for a surround view setup. The reviews had me worried right away that there would be 1-2 of them defective and I'd have to work through the RMA process. But I guess I beat the statistics and got all three monitors in perfect working condition.
Pros: The monitors look beautiful. Well packaged, delivered ahead of schedule. No dead pixels. Couldn't be happier with these monitors.
Cons: I can't think of any reason that I am unsatisfied with these monitors.
Summary: This is an excellent daily driver that I've had since June on 2013 (5 months). I haven't had a single issue.
Pros: This is a gorgeous monitor that's super bright and HUGE. I use it as my primary for software development and I have more real estate than I could ever hope for in my IDE. The picture is crisp and I haven't had any issues since I plugged it in.
Cons: None that I know of. (I did not plug the monitor speakers in, because why would anyone expect anything from monitor speakers.)
