Very good display at desirable 16:10 aspect ratio. Outstanding value.

Summary: I purchased this monitor for work, and for the work I do the larger size everything. The extra height over 1920X1080 displays is very helpful. There seems to be some color shift toward the top of the display at some viewing angles, but it is not too bad and does not interfere with use of the monitor.
Summary: The ASUS VW266H has a nice matte finish and relatively even back-lighting. For its age, the grey scale isn't terrible, but the vertical angle below 10 degrees is somewhat dark (as to be expected from a TN panel).
Summary: Upgraded from my 21.5" Dell monitor (1680x1050) so that my desk monitor would be the same resolution as my laptop that's hooked up to. Was a little unprepared for how much larger this monitor is. The screen itself seems pretty good. The viewing angle from the side is good, vertical angles not so great. Monitor can be angled up and down, but height cannot be adjusted. Have noticed one dead pixel, a nice bright red one, upper right center.
Summary: PROS: Once you actually calibrate it, it's not a bad monitor. The refresh rate is great for gaming, and the size is the biggest plus. It takes patience and time to get the monitor good, but you need to calibrate it. CONS: The color's outside of the box are not good, if not horrible. There is a blue tint, that you need to adjust to get rid of. Brightness uniformity is "meh", meaning the bottom half of the screen is obviously more bright then the top half.
Summary: This monitor surprised me in a positvie way...for the price I expected it might be substandard but it delivers a very high quality image, sharp text and colors that appear very accurate. I had planned to buy a 27 inch monitor but someone suggested the ASUS 25.5 inch since the reolution went to 1200 insted of just 1080. The size was a dramatic improvement from my 22 inch monitors, very shockingless obvious when you place the 22 inch next to this monitor.
Summary: I'm very happy with this purchase. The monitor is large with a crisp image at 1920x1200. With some adjustments to the basic menu settings all of the colors are tuned to my liking. The only issue I could see some people having is the viewing angles, if you are not facing the screen straight on there is a slight off color look to the screen, but this is not uncommon for many TN displays.
Summary: It's become very hard to find monitors with vertical resolution greater than 1080 pixels, so I was delighted to find this monitor. Color accuracy is not perfect out of the box, but much better than I expected -- at least roughly on par with Samsung, and probably as good as it gets for this resolution at this price point. With some fiddling, I was able to get true white with reasonable contrast and very good blacks.
Summary: Outstanding monitor at an excellent price!!! Supports all the inputs that I need (VGA/DVI/HDMI) - it was instantly recongnized by my system and a breeze to get the display settings set the way I wanted.
