Good size, well put together, rock solid, fast response time, good contrast ratio, wish it had HDMI but I knew that coming in. No problem with DVI-D, cables are high quality and long enough. Buttons are nice, picture quality is nice, there is a lot to rave about this monitor.

Now the downsides: I hear a good number of people complain about the stand, saying it's too big, or seems like it'll tip because it's a round base, however, I find it very stable for the size and weight of the monitor itself (monitor is pretty light, base is like stone, as it should be). I've never even tried the speakers, dunno why you'd give a two star rating for such a superb monitor. You did buy a monitor, not a set of speakers, right? Anyway, for the price, I'm surprised they even shoved in speakers.

Another note, don't be fooled about those 8024958720984572094875204985725:1 ratios. I'm pretty sure this monitor is 1000:1 true contrast ratio, which is pretty high quality, you only get that huge contrast ratio if you enable LED dimming, which is... not so stellar (works poorly/completely dims if a game/movie has a scene with white text on black screen), but I don't use it anyway. There are plenty of settings/features to play with anyway, I am pleased.

Also, I purchased this one from Newegg.

I'm a big fan of Asus monitors, and this one is no exception. Sleek styling, good viewing angle, and easy controls. I had read the reviews about the speakers and wasn't too worried, since their only use will be the occasional you tube video, not music, movies, or anything where sound quality would be vital. Nonetheless, I felt it appropriate to mention that the speakers are atrocious, almost to the point of being unusable. I get much better quality sound from the speaker on my phone. I went with this monitor to save space from having external speakers, but I may end up buying them anyway.

Edit: I have a 24" Asus (VE249) that also has built in speakers. Although I don't use them, I tested them out for the first time just to compare and they are of much better quality than what you find here.

Update:
I thought it was as good as new till I compared the monitors side by side, look at the 2 pictures I uploaded, the older one(LEFT) has a tint problem. It has a 3 year warranty, they gave me an RMA to ship back. I also asked if I could pay for the replacement that way I am not left without a monitor, when they receive the old one they will credit my card, their actually letting me put a deposit for the return. I have to pay $10 to ship to them, they will cover return shipping. Can't complain about service. I will update if I have a problem getting my deposit lol.

Almost 2 years later its working just as good as day one, I got it on a special from Compusa on 11/28/10 for $109.99, not one pixel has gone bad, its vivid and bright, does not hurt my eyes. I will be ordering another one of this same model from Amazon since they have the better price this week. I noticed that the BAD reviews on this monitor are about the SPEAKERS? seriously? you guys use the speakers on your monitors and expect quality? I have a headset for gaming, youtube, etc...I have NEVER tested the sound on this monitor and I really could careless, I have external speakers connected and I never turn them on. But hey that's just me.

Based on my short time using the monitor, I'll merely say that I don't know how good the picture quality can truly be because the controls are so awkward to use. Of the several available presets, two look quite good for daytime use, but the rest of them are puzzling. It's hard if not impossible to adjust the settings to make the picture look the way it should in Night View Mode, for example. Very odd. Perhaps a gamma option would help. I had to go into my graphics card's settings to make adjustments.

Speakers? I expected to choose a monitor without any speakers at all, so I won't complain about the teeny-weeny ones built into this model (I haven't found them yet, but I do hear them). Overall, thus far, I like this monitor. But I wonder whether I'll ever find a good picture mode for nighttime use.

UPDATE:

Having used the monitor over a year and become accustomed to it, I can see nothing wrong with the picture and I don't really mess around with the various settings. I keep it on Scenery mode, although Standard mode sounds like a more sensible setting for normal use; not sure why it is the way it is. But it is. It would've been nice to have a night/dark mode that actually looks good, but I'm still happy. Lastly, WHY can't a monitor have controls that are not completely AWKWARD? Maybe that's why I don't use any of the other screen modes.

It works and looks great but when I tried mounting it there were serious problems like the mounting brackets just didn't exist. That is fine for people that are not mounting it. For people like me I had to kind of screw it in with wood screws. I know that sounds harsh and a bit irresponsible. But it actually fixed the problem. So if you buy this monitor and you get that issue you can always screw in the monito like you would a piece of wood.
