Cons: The display of text is horrible. Everything is clear enough to read, but blurry enough to give you a headache. Spent two days adjusting all settings, cables, etc. to no avail. I have bought dozens of 22" monitors and never regretted any of them until now.
Summary: I use this for a gaming machine. It's very bright, offers superior contrast and refreshes extremely fast. However, within a year, the active matrix went bad.Getting waranty service through ASUS was a major hassle, and the ultimately sent me a new monitor.
