Reviews

ASUS is very trustworthy, never had a problem with them. The 2560 x 1440 screen is perfect for dividing it up on emacs. The productivity is way better. And it looks gorgeous too at a very reasonable price point.

from completed build 5930K Build

Great 1440p screen, 59Hz though come on.

from completed build My Gaming Rig

Sharp crisp colors. Makes a great secondary monitor and backup as well. I love Asus quality.

Very nice screens, they did not work out of the box with the DisplayPort, although that was a function of the EVGA GEFORCE card not being updated to latest firmware. Once that was done. they both work great. Image is good and color reproduction was fairly accurate - small calibration needed only.

from completed build Skymonster - 6700k / 980 ti

Amazing monitor. A big step up from my previous 1600x900 at 60hz. I didn't think I cared about IPS panels until I bought this. Colors look great even at the lowest brightness setting. This monitor also works well with my 980 ti. Also its fricken huge and took me a while to get used to the size (previously used a 17" laptop screen).

I hate displayport with a burning passion but other than that 5/5

from completed build Purple Lian-Li Workstation ^_^

Fantastic looking panel, I use this as my secondary display. As for quality control, I guess I've been lucky. Neither this nor the monitor below have had issues. I even bought this one open box from Amazon.
