    Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 9reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by first step for better display Love my new monitor, but user manual lacks pretty bad (you can get more info online). It has a great base plate stand as you can push it down. lean it forward and even turn it sideways so as to get it just in the right place real fast without trial and error. 06/09/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful clarity; great color; extremely happy Let me start off and say: the clarity of 2650x1440 compared to 1920x1080 is amazing. The pixelation of text and edges look much softer and much easier on the eyes, making using my PC easier to use for an extended period of time without getting eye fatigue. To get an idea of how much sharper it really is, this monitor is 3686400 pixels, versus full HD's 2073600 pixels. That's 77.8% more screen space!When I'm working I like to tile my windows so I don't have to switch between every time time I needed to see something else. Before this monitor, I had a second monitor in place to take on windows that didn't fit well in my multitasking. With this (huge) resolution I no longer need that second monitor and have gained the space on my desk back.The stand is very nice. Adjusting the height glides easy, while not being loose, and the tilt is of the same caliber. The plastic on this is thick enough it doesn't bow in like some monitors do. If you're accustom to TN panels, you'll really appreciate the feel of quality you'll find in this monitor.This monitor has some real heft to it. I can pick up my other monitors with one hand, flip it around, and carry it across the the room. This one needs more care, not because it's more expensive, but rather it's 20 lbs.. Takes me back to the 90's, where heft was a good sign it was expensive.Gaming for me is smooth on this monitor. I did lose quite a bit of frames per second because of the high resolution, but not to the point of being unplayable. If need be, I could switch the games to the lower 1920x1080 and still enjoy the games the same as I did before. I used to swear that I wouldn't buy a monitor with anything longer than a 2ms response time, but now that I've had this monitor (5ms) I don't find it to be as much of an issue. Most TV's I've played on have an 8-12ms response time and it didn't bother me then, so I don't really know why I was so against it for my PC.Watching movies is very nice, however full HD movies look small now. Going full screen with a full HD movie is akin to what 720 looks like on 1080. While you're not getting the pixel for pixel ratio it's still enjoyable, if not slightly blurred. I have my desk set up so I can get away from the chair and sit on my couch instead when I'm watching movies, and from that distance I can't tell the difference.ASUS has a 3-year warranty on this monitor, not 1-year. Walmart's 3-year care plan will cover some things that ASUS will not, such as power surges. For manufacturer defects (dead power supply, back-light goes out, etc.) you'd need to go through the manufacturer. Don't confuse warranty with care plan.I use my computer for everything from entertainment to work. It's worthwhile for me to have something nicer being as I don't need anything else (no TV, no game console, no cable box, etc.). Where I would have spent thousands on the "ultimate entertainment space" in the living room I've condensed into my office and made a spectacular multipurpose space.I entirely recommend this monitor. The price is very right compared to monitors in it's same class. For someone who uses their computer often (or if you're an Apple refugee to Linux or Windows), you'll greatly appreciate this monitor. 06/09/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Monitor for a Macbook Pro I use this monitor every day with my Macbook Pro. It like it a lot better than my other Apple Thunderbolt monitor because it is not glossy and the display is adjustable. Oh and it is a lot cheaper and has a HDMI port so It can be used like a TV. The monitor comes with just about every cable you can think of except the one I needed. This was only a minor issue as I am used to buying special cables for my Macbook. Pick up a cheap cable that is mini-displayport on one end and full sized displayport on the other end then you are good to go. 07/12/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Product arrived quickly and in perfect shape. Happy. 09/26/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Seems worth the money spent I was having these purposes and this monitor seems to satisfy them all1. I am writing code and the size of the monitor is quite good for coding. Using it with FLUX to auto adjust screen light according to daytime!2. I do not have TV, I use the monitor for watching online movies etc and quite good. I use it with XBMC.3. I do not play game extensively but when I played games I could not notice anything bad4. Having embedded speakers, yeah I use them especially at night, closing other speakers.ConsWhen the screen is absolutely black and if the room is also quite dark, you are able to see the light leakage from most of the corners. It is not like a beam light coming to your eyes, but you slightly notice that the center is darker and toward the corners it is a bit less darker. 12/28/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by spectacular sharpness Pros: sharpness and clarity, adjustable/positioning. Cons: speakers not that great (expected). 10/13/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Quite a differance over my 24" display. Very nice monitor and in games it helps me to actually read the text. :) One of the main reasons i went with a lager display. Very good all around so far (1 month ownership).Crisp clear display and actually goes black when not in use and not a dark grey like my old monitor. 08/30/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Monitor for Mac Mini I am using this monitor with an Apple Mac Mini late 2012. I also purchased a small DisplayPort to large DisplayPort cable ( I'm getting the full 2560 x 1440 resolution. It's a beautiful picture. The speakers did not have enough bass for me, so I'm using external speakers with a separate subwoofer. The monitor is very adjustable so I was able to get it at just the right height and angle. It's bright and the colors are vibrant. I find myself watching movies on this monitor rather than the large screen TV. I highly recommend it. 06/01/2014
