Summary: We read all the 1 & 2 star reviews to see if there was a common problem with this monitor (the 1 & 2 stars are minimal) and it seems that the common problem was the operator. Other than some dead pixels, or an occasional lemon that pretty much occur in all products, and all brands, (which is covered by Amazon) the problem was the operator didn't know how to set it up. This monitor has worked flawlessly, since it was set up, and adjusted to our preferences.
Summary: Only positive things to say about this monitor. I had purchased three of its sibling 27" models over the past couple years, and I've had great success with every ASUS monitor that I've owned. I ordered this model (only difference from my other models is the lack of DVI input - not a problem for me since I now use HDMI exclusively) because it was in-stock. No dead pixels. Excellent color, clarity, and brightness. Even tone across entire surface. No excess heat!

Summary: Watch out for the description, this monitor cannot be "daisy chained". I was looking forward to "daisy chaining" this monitor via my display port; however, after a call with Asus my concerns were validated. Per Asus, this monitor cannot be daisy chained.
Summary: Great monitor especially for fps like cod and battlefield. I play my xbox one and 360 on this monitor. 1 ms lag the lowest u can go. Had to research and tweak the calibrations a little after I did. Makes alot games look alot better now. Use hdmi with it also. Best money I spent on a monitor.
Summary: Great monitor!! If you're thinking about getting this monitor for gaming, stop what you're doing and hit "Add to Cart". I use it for PS4 and XB1, and it is outstanding! I'm colorblind, so I can't say much about color reproduction and accuracy, but it is crystal clear 1080p. Went from playing on a 40" LCD TV to a monitor, and I'll never be able to go back to playing on a TV.

Summary: Ordered three. One came with a dead pixel. After a couple weeks use another pixel died on the same monitor and had an additional go out on a second monitor. Was not worth the hassle to try and return them. Color is also not the best. All in all they are ok for the money. I was looking for something that fit into my budget, these did that and I don't regret the purchase.
