Summary: I may not be a discriminate enough user since I don't really know how to detect all this blue so many people see. I mean my win 7 Aero frames are blue. My desktop background is blue. So that is a lot of blue. But I admit I do like blue to be blue. Anyway, good price for a great big monitor. Fun to edit my HD videos on so much real estate.
couldn't afford the high end LCD, but these work very well for the price I paid

Summary: I am a Computer Aided Designer, so have a bias towards the crispness of a CRT that can only be matched by an LCD costing nearly $1k. So when my refurbed CRT that I bought several years ago started to dysfunction, I had to look for a reasonable replacement. I had been wanting a pair of LCDs to compliment my new replacement Dell Precision workstation and found these ASUS LCDs to have high user reviews and was able to get them for <$300 apiece with a mail-in rebate.
Summary: The other positive reviews give an accurate technical idea of this monitor. Without repeating the details, the monitor has excellent clarity and resolution. The chief advantage of the 16x10 size ratio with 1920x1200 resolution is that you can see a full page of a document with very readable font size, and you can display two documents side by side.
Summary: Bought this to play XBOX on it, works great. I'm also using every input available to display my other video sources; HDMI for XBOX, DVI for MAC (dual screen mode), VGA for Windows box, Component for Cable box. This monitor switches between the inputs VERY quickly. Only problem is color set-up. Audio is no problem for me, I'm using headphones exclusively.
Summary: I just got the VW266H, pulled the unit out of the box, snapped it into its simple base stand, adjusted the vertical tilt and plugged in the HDMI cable (ordered separately), turned on the power and selected HDMI input (button next to the power button) and it came on, no problems. I was worried about the possibility of bad pixels but just could not find any as I searched with a black rectangle using a graphics program.
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.
Good bang for the buck, Color calibration is a pain

Summary: 1st one had 8 stuck pixels along the bottom of the screen, 6 were massaged away easily, 2 turned out to be completely dead no matter what software or massage method I used. So I returned it same day, thanks to Amazon's great exchange policy, got my replacement in 1 day. The 2nd unit is flawless after careful examination. The monitor's great for gamers, no question about it, enjoyed every minute of metro2033, COD MW2, BF:BC2 and SC2.
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.
