I settled on this because it was the cheapest 23" I could get, living in california.

It also has a 3 year advance exchange warranty. Asus pays shipping both ways if you have problems with your monitor, and will ship you a replacement promptly to minimize downtime. This was a big deciding factor in my purchase.

In comparison, Acer (and some other brands) may sell cheaper monitors, but they only pay RMA shipping one way. Shipping to Acer for warranty claims is at your expense. Considering that shipping a monitor can cost around $15 fedex, you can see why I chose Asus, and not Acer.

The monitor is loaded with connectors. hdmi,dvi,vga, 3.5mm audio, and spdif.
So, if you want to connect a higher powered audio system, you can. If you want to plug in your headphones, you can.
The built in speakers are about as good as a typical laptop's. Don't expect much from them. Speaker quality was not a consideration for me when I bought this.

The OSD controls are easy enough to use, though I've seen better. There's a Menu button, back, up, down, and mode button. How hard could it be? Learning curve is minimal.

No dead pixels. LED backlight means no warm up time, and instant power on.

There are a few color/brightness settings built in- standard, theater, nighttime, and a few others.
I set mine to Standard, and tweaked the RBG settings myself. Out of the box, it is set to 100% brightness. I turned it down to a comfortable 80%. The colors are bright; almost a tad neon.

This is a TN lcd panel, so you'll get color shifting at different vertical angles; not so much at different horizontal angles. so the person sitting next to you shouldn't see that much color distortion.

This monitor is very nice for the money. It is full HD 1080P and comes with 1 HDMI, VGA, and DVI port. The computer I have now only has VGA, but it still looks great. I plan on getting a new computer soon that will have DVI. I have hooked up my PS3 to the HDMI port and God of War 3 looks outstanding. Much better than my 720p TV. The screen is much bigger than I thought. It is 23 inches and huge upgrade from my 16 inch laptop monitor. My laptop screen was starting to go out on my so I had to get a new monitor, and this is great. Currently I am dealing with a ground loop problem, which creates flickers on the screen and a lot of feedback in the audio. When I unplug my laptop charger all of this goes away, so clearly it is not the monitor. I need to find a fix for this though, because it is very distracting.

I was reading some other reviews (I believe on Newegg) and they were saying you can't turn up the volume from the buttons on the monitor and only within the menu. This is not true. All you have to do is push the down button (which doubles as the volume button) and this will bring up the volume, and then just push the up button and it will easily turn the volume up. I believe people got confused because the up button doubles as the brightness button. But once you bring up the volume or the brightness control, then the up and down buttons control it. It is very nicely done actually, because now you can easily bring up the volume and brightness controls without shuffling through the menu.

-Large viewing area.
-Non glossy screen preventing glare.
-Fairly light and thin
-LED back light
-When computer goes to sleep it goes into standby and can be easily turned back on without even dealing with the power button.

I was so disappointed by the high input lag of most modern day lcd hdtv's that I went ahead and began researching LCD computer monitors. I wanted something to hook my xbox 360/ps3 up to, as well as a Western Digital Live media player for 1080p blurays. This monitor handles them all perfectly and I am very impressed by the quality and pop for a computer monitor. Asus has done a nice job and the LED backlighting is excellent. I do not notice any flashlighting or light bleeding around the edges. I use the stock "theater mode" for xbox 360/blurays and standard mode for my computer. Games are handled very well, details come out and there is definitely a "pop" factor. Lag is no issue at all and I was able to play Battlefield Bad Company 2 online and do alright. I also tested Dragon Age 2 for 360 and that ran well via the 360 vga cable I ordered from monoprice. Please note that you will need an audio adapter cable (female composite audio to female audio head jack) if you want to hook your computer speakers up..after all the speakers on the monitor are weak like everybody else says. Very good monitor that handles motion extremely well. Movies run smooth, games run smooth without any blurring or hiccups. I am glad I went with this ASUS, my first but not my last.

I bought this at a local brick and mortar, rather than on Amazon.
No dead pixels and easy setup. Some people have complained that the menu is confusing to go through, but I didn't find that to be the case.
I have this setting side by side next to my Acer p221w 22" LCD and I must say that the difference is pretty noticable. 23" LED full HD with a 2ms response time and goes up to 75hz all for under $200 ...Asus you ROCK.

The only thing I don't like about the monitor is the top housing. It is very thick and has an edge on it in the back...If you have a webcam that mounts to the top of a flat panel, won't work.
If you get this monitor, make sure to register it on Asus' webpage, otherwise the 3 year warranty is void.
