Summary: I bought this monitor as a replacement for a Samsung 30" monitor that died in warranty and could not be repaired. I like this ASUS VW266H a lot, now that I have the colors set the way I like them. However, when I shut my computer down, if I don't physically turn off the monitor, it goes to sleep (LED turns amber) but will not "wake up" when I restart my computer.
Summary: The quality of this monitor is not the best but the value is unbeatable. Off angle viewing is atrocious and if I needed it would render this monitor useless. With that said, for the money this monitor is a great value. Straight on viewing is excellent, the controls are easy to navigate, the connectivity options are amazing (though USB would have been nice).
Summary: The monitor arrived in perfect condition. The packing was well designed to protect the monitor but made removing it a little difficult. I put the monitor on the stand, connected the PC using the VGA port - I have a KVM switch - connected the power cord and turned on the monitor. The display is great - I have not changed the default settings.
Summary: I do some digital art as a hobby and have a dual monitor setup. I picked this out as my primary monitor which this monitor isn't really suited for that purpose but I was on a budget. It works great but has some flaws... As you can expect from a lower priced LCD, the color depth is slightly lower than true color. If try to look at a true gradient in a graphics program there is some minor "stepping" instead of a perfect gradient.
Summary: Great monitor, great price, and big...big...big! Before I purchased, I did a lot of homework, I think the reviews that gave this monitor only average ratings were nitpicking. All monitors in this class have field of view issues, and this one is no different. If you're sitting at your desk you won't notice anything in that regard. You have to compare apples to apples, not sub $300 monitors to $1000 monitors.
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: After a month of using this monitor, I'm still taken with the beautiful display. Yes, you do have to adjust the factory settings or it'll be way too bright and a little too much color. It will make people look like cartoons, if you don't adjust. I still find it difficult to adjust anything easily and yes the speakers are not the greatest, but who uses "monitor" speakers anymore, I certainly don't. It arrived undamaged and no dead pixels. Great "free" shipping!
Summary: I have brought this monitor for a few weeks now. Overall it has been great, better than my expection while I has been searching/reviewing for monitors from many brand. This one caught my attention by its price and the features that I need. The only thing missing, is the adjustable stand that I have been looking for, however, I don't see any monitor in this size and price range will supply that.
Summary: Als einer von wenigen TFTs unterstützt der VW266H echte 50Hz, und zwar über alle Eingänge bei allen Auflösungen (dies wird nämlich nirgends ausdrücklich erwähnt, auch das Datenblatt ließ hier nur mutmaßen), was für die Videobetrachtung bei uns im PAL-Gebiet äußerst wichtig ist. Die Mehrzahl der TFTs rechnet nämlich alle Bildfrequenzen intern auf 60Hz um, was zu ruckelnden Bewegungen führt.
Excerpt: Nachdem ich den Monitor vorwiegend für Videoschnitt und -Betrachtung nutze, möchte ich hier in erster Linie auf diesen Bereich näher eingehen. Zuvor diente mir hierfür viele Jahre lang ein 21" Röhrenmonitor von Eizo, von dem ich mich auch nie trennen wollte, nach meinem Umstieg auf HDV blieb mir jedoch nichts anderes übrig, als einen TFT zu nehmen, sofern ich meine Videos auch in der vollen Auflösung betrachten möchte.
Pros: Komponenteneingang mit hervorragender Qualität, unterstützt echte 50Hz, HDMI
