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: 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: 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!
Summary: I bought this monitor several months ago to go with a new PC of mine. I play video games all of the time and they are typically RPG's, MMO's, FPS and some Simulations. I originally considered going with a 27 inch monitor but I was just nervous with how close I was going to be sitting. I started to do research and it came down to this or the Alien-Ware 3d monitor and I spent weeks looking through everything before I decided to get this one.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace my aging 20" Viewsonic VX2025WM. I had many great years with my old Viewsonic but I decided it was time to upgrade and sold it to a friend of mine. This monitor was actually my 2nd choice. I had actually been looking at this monitor and the LG W2363D-PF. The specs are almost identical but the LG has a anti-glare screen and the Asus is glossy. When the LG was sold out, I ordered the Asus monitor instead.
Summary: Let me preface by saying I do not and will not EVER use this monitor for 3D. I am not into that--it gives me headaches and causes sensory overload. I bought this monitor to receive a more "fluid" experience navigating Windows and playing FPS's (mainly bought it for BF3 release). Let me tell you...you WILL notice a difference between 60Hz and 120Hz. The people who claim, "The human eye can't keep up with a higher refresh rate than 60Hz" are pulling your leg.
