Summary: Great picture and the size is just right for a simple desk set-up. If you go any bigger, you will have to move your chair backwards to be comfortable but this is the maximum size I would go otherwise. The picture is crisp and as a graphic designer and gamer this monitor is perfect!
I would definently buy again and/or recommend to a friend

Summary: This monitor is everything I should ever need if not more. Plenty and I mean plenty of screen. I have two connected to PC. One in landscape and one portrait. I use them for personal desktop at home. I watch a few movies, photoshop quite a bit and everyday internet crap and they are perfect. I haven't noticed any dead pixels and everything works great. I think I have had them a month or so now. Hope this helps. Oh, no hassle purchase.
Summary: I got this because it is Asus, has 2ms, and 27". I had a Samsung 2ms 22" monitor and I always liked it but a friend had one of these and I told myself I would too once I built a new machine and that is what I did. I have it set up with my old 22 right beside it for multi display use and this Asus is just awesome. If your deciding between a 22 and a 27 trust me kick in the extra coin it is worth it!
Pros: Perfect size for my desk, it fills my field of vision. It looks great, is as bright as I could ever need, and is very fast for gaming (search for display lag display database to see true results). The cherry on top of all that is of course the very low price. If you're thinking of buying a bigger monitor, this beast won't disappoint.
