Very nice display.

Where do i begin. This monitor is the best there is. When I saw the bezels and how thin they were, i had to have it. The picture is so crisp and the colors are so vivid. This blows my 1080p TV away. The fact that i got it at an all time low price of like $260 was an added bonus. It works great with my 980 Ti, and i run 60FPS+ 90% of the time.

This monitor is stunning. This is the first monitor I've actually seen in person with such slim bezels. The picture quality is really crisp. ASUS never disappoints.

I have read horror stories but I got lucky and this was a great buy for the price, gaming looks amazing on it!

A nice big 1440p IPS (bright w/ tons of view angles) with low refresh rate

Beautiful monitor with great colors and solid response time @ 5ms. Bezel is fairly thin so I imagine it would work well in a multi monitor setup. Decent amount of back light bleed.

If you are deciding between 1080p/144hz/TN panel and 1440p/60hz/IPS panel I think 1440p is the way to go for most people. Competitive gamers will benefit from the increased response time but the losses in resolution and color will be greatly missed by most people. I tried both and 1440/IPS was the clear choice. I only noticed the difference in very twitchy, fast paced games like CS:GO.

Best monitor I've bought for the price. 1440p IPS, very great colors, and IMO looks better than a 27" IPS panel. 60Hz (not overclockable at all) and since all of my games run past 60fps anyway G-SYNC/Freesync isn't needed for now.

This monitor left me with a sour taste in my mouth. I received one with bad back light bleeding so I RMA'd it and my second one has the same issue. I tried to live with it but eventually sent it to Asus for "repair" only to receive it more damaged. I fought with Asus for a while and decided it wasn't worth the time. The panel itself looks amazing for daily use and the stand is awesome but I don't think I'll ever buy another Asus monitor.

Excellent monitor with a small bezel and brilliant colors. This is my first 1440p monitor and I'm very satisfied. Definitely worth the jump when you're primarily gaming.

Had 1-2 dead pixels on both of my monitors but its too dense to notice
