For Gaming this is a great monitor still, most games will have absolutely no problem playing on this monitor.

No the screen does not go from end to end it just looks like that when off you can even tell if you owned it for a day that there is a line where the screen ends.
Omar
If you can use HDMI and you have a recent video card, your PC will stream digit audio and the monitor speakers will produce very good sound quality.

Gorgeous screen and the speakers are surprisingly good. It takes a bit to get used to the widescreen but once you do you won't go back.

Only Con would be it's not VESA compatible but I never intended to mount it.

Received it just today for use with my late 2012 27'' imac! So far the picture quality is great, not as great as the imac but I feel as if i need to tweak it some, maybe I can find someone's settings with it tuned nicely. I've already put it to work, using it for the timeline in Premiere Pro CS6 as i full-screen the playback on the imac. It's height in comparison takes getting used to but definitely a sweet monitor, I don't regret it one bit. If i were to say there are any cons to this purchase, it would be the initial packaging, the box came almost destroyed and half open along with almost no protection on the inside but some crumpled up paper. It was to the point where the Asus box was even scuffed and quite frankly I was almost outraged, expecting a wrecked product. Thankfully Asus' packaging wasn't nearly as poor and held the monitor nicely in it's little styrofoam housing. As for gaming, I've briefly tested it with my Ps3 and so far it is a beauty. Oh, and before I forget, I feel as if Asus "over-hyped" their sound system for this monitor, it's definitely not terrible, but not nearly as good as they claimed it would be. But in the long run a pro/prosumer set-up would eventually be seeing some sort of sound system built separately so that's of no concern to me.
Ultimately, I'm happy with this purchase. If anyone has their screen tuned nicely I'd love it if you shared your settings so I can toy with it :')

(Used a mini-displayport to displayport connector from cable matters)

Seems to adjust well to varied application settings. Image quality great for game graphics, movies, or work spreadsheets. A good overall household screen.

Honestly I absolutely love this monitor. Its amazing for watching movies on at my desk, since its the 21:9 aspect ration you wont have any black bars, the movie will fill up the entire screen and makes it that much more enjoyable to watch. Surfing around the internet this is pretty sweet too. I recently went from 2 - 22" monitors to just this single monitor and I dont really miss having two screens since i can split the pages and it still able to see each window and everything on each website. For Gaming this is a great monitor still, most games will have absolutely no problem playing on this monitor. Only game that has given me any issues is Dayz SA and it just took longer to get the settings to work right, but its still in Alpha so im not complaining. the extra view you get when playing FPS games is amazing.

Only complaint I have is that the price point for this monitor is a little high. I bought this monitor and pulled it out of the box, put on my desk and it was massive and i loved it. However a couple weeks later I bought the same version monitor but only in the 27 inch and i got to say the $140 cheaper 27 inch monitor looks bigger. but that is because of the aspect ratio is 16:9 and is only 1920x1080. the 29 inch is at least an 1.5 inches shorter but the width is obviously a lot longer. If I had seen these monitors side by side, I probably would have bought the 27 inch monitor.

The price is honestly the only thing that caused me to not give it a full 5 stars. I would easily buy this monitor and have 2 of them if it got closer to $300 ($350 is the highest I would pay to get a second monitor)

Pros
-great color
-screen size
-speakers surprisingly good (only good - doesn't beat a simple $50 2.

Just got this monitor today. Wanted it for my PC setup. I use Mac 99% of the time, however, I have to also use a windows based PC for some of the work I do. I have an ASUS monitor about 1.5 years old, not very good -ok for the cost, seemed a little blurry. Then again when using anything but Apple displays with 2k resolution everything seems blurry by comparison. I decided to try this monitor due to it's resolution and size. First impressions; it's really light - almost fragile. The stand while attractive isn't that robust, then again it really doesn't have to be as the monitor is so light. Here's a simple review after using it for a day:

Pro's
Great resolution
Great color
Wide screen, eliminates the need for 2 screens.
Works great with PS4 and gaming.
Movies look awesome (no it's not 65" plasma, but for a PC screen it's pretty nice)
Works great with Surface Pro 3. SP3 will use the 2k resolution, works great (just be sure to have the right cable)
Refresh rate is excellent, no ghosting with high speed action i.e. PS4 games.
Sound is very good for a the built in speakers, on par with say an iMac sound maybe a tad better.
Build quietly it's actually very good, materials 99% plastic.
Shipping from Amazon, fast and furious as usual.

Con's
Menu System - OMG what junk, it will drive you mad for a few hours until you get used this this horror of user interface design
Light - monitor moves very easy, could be a problem for some. ASUS should have put a brick in there to get it some weight.
Only one HDMI, one large sized display port, one DVI. So if you want to have many items connected to monitor (Game console, PC, Apple TV etc) you'll need a switching device of sorts.
