great 27 inch monitor; great value


I am very picky when it comes to things like monitors. I look at one for at least 8 hours every day at work. I LOVE THIS MONITOR. That is all I can say. for those who wrote the negative reviews about color or grayscale, etc, people have to realize that...

was looking for a large 'bring it in myself ' monitor for work. the 17 inch crud they hand out makes one go blind ; I already brought in a 22 inch, but wanted larger, so looked for 27 inch ; good reviews of this monitor, and a special deal and rebate,...

that I can't justify buying a second one

Great monitor


I have 3 monitors + 1 TV above the 3 currently for my setup. This monitor serves on the right panel and is absolutely amazing. Looking to replace my 24" Asus on the left with another one of these to have 3 27's.

Big ; Sleek Frame ; Beautiful Colors (digital vibrance looks incredible turned up now) ; Cheap ; 100m:1 ; Asus ; Display Port

5 ms response time (serving as my right panel monitor in a 3-way setup, so this doesn't bother me)

Great, but it took a while


At first these monitors were like staring into the sun. I tried the OSD controls for a while, but they're REALLY uncomfortable if you keep trying different settings, interface to OSD was not intuitive at first, but just read the hints at the bottom and...

Uniform color between each monitor (I got two). Great bang per buck. Games look great (after a lot of twiddling)

osd controls are on the back of the monitor accessed from the bottom. Set the monitor to sRGB or Standard and adjust everything else with the color control panel of your video card

Not Such Great Luck (Updated Review)


Very bright colors. (Can get even brighter than the standard mode by editing via OSD.) ; Very thin frame on the monitor ; The base of the monitor is pretty small so I didn't have any trouble fitting this on my desk ; Quite decent OSD settings ;...

I bought 3 of these monitors ; 1 monitor has at least 1 pixel that is darker than the rest ; 1 monitor has at least 5 pixels that are darker than the rest ; 1 monitor has at least 1 dead pixel... so buyers beware here... this means that I basically...

Great but be careful


DONT REBATE BEFORE YOU TEST YOUR MONITOR. Newegg will honor your rebate even if your RMA is still being looked at past the rebate deadline. Over all if you're looking for a good budget monitor, this is it. Just make sure you have time to deal with RMA...

Great Screen size for a 1080 ; Very Sharp for its pixel density, If you aren't looking for it you wont notice it ; Different settings and some what easy enough menu ; Different Inputs with an input button ; Sturdy compared to my Samsung monitor I...

RMA Issues as many have said. I bought 2 monitors and 1 was fine and the other had an issue with black level. Newegg RMA took care of it and now I wait for the replacement ; Small tilt to the right but if you aren't purchasing more than 1 and placing...

Not too shabby


I am probably going to order another 2 of these next Friday as long the sale holds up.

Very bright colors. (Can get even brighter than the standard mode by editing via OSD.) ; Very thin frame on the monitor ; The base of the monitor is pretty small so I didn't have any trouble fitting this on my desk ; Quite decent OSD settings ;...

The VividPixel setting under the Image tab in the OSD was causing my overall picture quality to be degraded. By turning off the VividPixel setting (0 value) I was able to get a very nice picture ; The VividPixel setting seems to be a sort of sharpness...

Vouching an earlier review; There are several settings in the monitors menu that can be adjusted appropriately to reach a number of desired results per user. This may fix some of the issues that other reviews are claiming

A stunning display with excellent features. A HUGE upgrade to my 4 Monitor setup! No issues with the display right out of the box

One would think an HDMI cable would also be included instead of the HDMI to DVI converting cable

Amazing Monitor


First off the people who write bad reviews about a monitor having issues that ordered from online need to realize damage was probably from transit.

This monitor is one of the best monitors I've ever seen, It's clarity is amazing and the bezel super tiny you cant even tell it's there. QUALITY PRODUCT. A
