Pros: The quality of this monitor is really high. I bought mine almost three years ago and it still works just as well as when I got it. I still don't have any dead pixels, it is still as luminous as day one, and it is sturdy.
Cons: I don't have any cons. I spent less than $150 for a monitor and I like what I received. Monitor speakers are usually awful so I didn't want one with those. Plus it says there are no speakers so how could not having speakers be a con? Also I didn't spend $350 so I don't expect IPS monitor quality. Getting a monitor with this quality at the < $150 price point is not a con.
A great inexpensive monitor, better for video than text

Summary: This monitor has a lot going for the price. I bought this to replace a 21.5" 1600x1200 pixel monitor. The aspect ratio is obviously different, but what I'm losing in vertical height, I gain in horizontal width. Packaging was very good and the monitor arrived in perfect condition. Here's the good, bad and the ugly of this monitor. GOOD - Bright picture with vivid colors and great contrast with very little variation from edge to edge.
Summary: Crystal clear picture. Lowest price anywhere. Easy to set up. Factory box and packing would stand up to any shipping abuse. It was $** cheaper than the other guy even though it was the same price. Overstock shipped for free and there was no tax or state disposal fee. That's where the $** savings came in.
Bigger than my old monitor, but takes up less space.

Summary: The work space for my desktop is limited with the two printers, scanner and other non-essentials so the size of a monitor was a concern. This monitor is larger than my old monitor but because of the lower stand it fits with room to spare. It can also be adjusted for what you're doing at the time and is clear as a bell. I highly recommend this monitor. Another great addition is the ASUS program that lets you divide the screen into four different sections.
Summary: Perfect for my son's video games. Great resolution. Perfect size for minimum space. Previously owned ViewSonic, which I also considered, but was not able to get the size I was looking for. Gave ASUS a high consideration because of my past experience with their other high quality products, particularly Mother boards.
