Summary: I'd been avoiding getting a new monitor because I just did not like LCD technology as compared with top-line CRT... This monitor finally combined all the right technologies of LCD monitors to convince me to buy... Just in time, too, because it wasn't much later when my old CRT's finally died.
Summary: First of all what happened to monitors over the last 10 years? We have processors and SSD's that are hundreds of times faster and cost nearly the same as a comparable item 10 years ago. Why is it we've gone in reverse in the monitor/display field? CRT's that pushed as high if not higher resolutions than current LCD's with better color and refresh rates were cheaper, made better, and lasted longer than any of the trash out there now.
Summary: I love, buy and use everything Asus. No doubt about it, this is a top-notch monitor. And like a lot of people I had little intention of using it for 3D. There's a lot I have to agree with on all the positive reviews, however... 1. The screen on the VG236 is obscenely glossy. I knew this coming in, but the "Color Shine Technology" might as well be called "Mirror Technology," it simply murdered my eyes just browsing the net.
Summary: This monitor is absolutely breathtaking.Once configured to your taste you will fall in love, hell I fell in love before I even turned it on.All games and videos run silky smooth and the monitor itself is well built.I've had no problems with any dead or stuck pixels either.Now I didn't buy it specifically for 3d, but rather the 120hz refresh rate and it is an experience like no other.The 3d aspect I'll dive into sometime in the future but for right now, this is all I...
Summary: As soon as you get this thing, and switch that refresh rate up, there is no going back to 60hz. Just doing normal desktop work is so much smoother, and gaming -- gaming is incredible. I was going to go with an IPS, but as someone who enjoys games, and also is fairly sensitive to framerates, I decided to go 120hz -- and I'm glad I did. Now there is a downside or two to this specific monitor.
Summary: As with most people, I purchased this monitor without consideration of it's 3D capabilities. I only cared for the 120Hz refresh, something unseen in most available monitors. I LOVE the ASUS brand and have no complaints up until now. Approximately one month of owning this beauty, I now have a vertical line of dead pixels. :( This probably won't be the stopping point for me. I am going to RMA it immediately and get it replaced.
Summary: I bought this LCD mainly for the 120hz feature. When playing games on my old 60hz LCD, I had to either live with bad screen tearing when I had vsync off, or deal with laggy response when I had vsync on. This was particularly bad in certain games and really annoyed me. With his ASUS LCD, I can use vsync with no lag or tearing. It works excellent for this purpose and I wish all LCD monitors would be capable of 120hz.
Summary: This is my replacement 3D monitor after I returned Acer GD235HZ bid. I've ordered Acer first because it had more& better reviews, but I wasn't so lucky and got the defected one. It gave me heavy green/magenta noise in 3D test mode. It was my first 3D monitor, so I had a hard time figuring out what was wrong. After some digging around forums, I figured out it was Acer GD235HZ bid monitor. I returned it and got this one instead. Guess what!
