Summary: It's a shame that I'll be retired to be my vertical cmd/coding monitor
Pros: I've now had this monitor for over 6 years running it nearly every single day. It probably wan't the best monitor money could buy back in the day, and it certainly doesn't compare to current offerings; but, at 2ms, and good image quality it has served (and still serving) as a great gaming, pictur...
Cons: That the built in wire-management loop was a little flimsy, I probably broke it a year or two ago.
Pros: Crisp clean colors, no dead pixels. Sound works well, we shall see for how long... The built camera must use the newer chips, because it is doing 24fps at max res. The HDMI port connection was tight, so it being vertical and possibly coming loose is not a concern.
Cons: The base is a bit weak. It doesn't bow or anything, but if bumped it does 'sway' a lot and takes a while to settle down.
Summary: Newegg's CS is the best I've ever dealt with. They were nothing but polite, professional and courteous. They seem to have a real commitment to their customers which is rare nowadays.
Pros: Wonderful brightness and colors right out of the box. CS:S looked great compared to my previous monitor with no blurring or other noticable issues. Others have mentioned light bleeding, but this was only noticable during bootup so I wouldn't consider this a con, more a characteristic of most LCDs...
Cons: I'm told the speakers are laughable, but most people use headphones / surround systems anyway.
Summary: Don't install the screensaver thing. It made computer not be able to sleep in my case.
Pros: Great monitor. Even compared to my same size Samsung that I watch tv and bluray on. Viewing angle is better horizontal wise. Am using with VGA only so far and I have been impressed. It is 90% as good as the Samsung on DVI.
Summary: Web cam is just a bonus. You will need to have your own mic plugged in if you intend on using any features to speak. On a side note this is probably the first time newegg took more then a day to ship. I would assume its because of the sale they had and their warehouse ran out in my area.
Pros: Coming off a 15" monitor i must say this product was bigger then i first imagined. Not one dead/stuck pixel. Color is amazing and works well with my HD needs. Being used for my ps3 or watching HD videos.... this does the trick and you wont be disappointed.
Cons: I dont have any disappoint with this product. Asus makes superb monitors and as many previous people mentioned... the monitor speakers aren't exactly the greatest but for someone like my who already has a logitech system, its really more of a bonus to have the speakers.
Summary: This monitor was worth every penny. I happened to get lucky and grabbed it while it was on sale on newegg. The thing that made me finally get this was the HDMI port. I would still be looking for a decent LCD if it weren't for that port. I'll come back in like a month and write another review.
Pros: I actually wasn't expecting this monitor to be so big, but when it finally got here, I was blown away. Not 1 dead, or stuck pixel, which I was extremely worried about. It's extremely bright and colorful. (I may have to turn the brightness down some). It works fantastic not only for my PC, but als...
Cons: Monitor adjustment buttons aren't really easy to use. I'm sure I'll eventually get used to them, but the little pictures that shows what they do could have been made easier to see. The speakers are pretty low quality, only using them until I hook up a better pair for the xbox 360. They I guess ha...
