I was initially going to get one of the Dell monitors, but the ones I was interested in have a glass screen. I remember my old CRT monitor, and how it was difficult dealing with the glare, so I opted for 3 of these monitors. Well, let me say that I am absolutely impressed!! I went from 3 24 inch monitors to 3 of these 27 inch monitors because my eyesight has become a bit worse over the years. These monitors really fit the bill. First and foremost, you can get these monitors for about $ cheaper if you opt for the stand that cannot be adjusted. But I am so glad I opted for these. The stand quality is great, and you can easily flip them from horizontal to vertical! Also, if you get these, you probably won't need a monitor mount system, which costs the same as 1 monitor for a good one! B&H sent these nicely packed and not 1 dead pixel on 3 monitors!!! Needless to say, I was very happy!! If you read reviews that say these monitors aren't crisp and clear, don't fear. Just turn off the vivid pixel and take the time to adjust them. Although, right out of the box, they were near perfect for me. There are a lot of menu options and these monitors are such a great bang for your buck!!! I can't give you specific details about the performance, because I am not very well versed on monitors, but for a guy with weakened eyesight (after staring at computer monitors for 25 years) this monitor is really impressive!! Oh, and they are really slick looking too. Thin bezels make them ideal for multi monitor setups!! Hope this helps in your decision...

Pros
Excellent stand, good variety of ports, very thin frame, so if you want 2 screens- may consider this monitor. Good audio(for monitor!)

Cons.
Bleed, color distortions with change of viewing angle(that is expected) as it's not an IPS. For me it was very important part as I do photo editing. Had to return.
also control buttons - looks great, but really hard to use

Overall not a bed monitor, but first, consider what you'll use it for...

    These have been really nice for dual and triple monitor setups around our office. Because the bezel is so thin, they look great side by side.

            I use this monitor as an extension to my laptop. I needed something that didn't have that washed out, filmed over, look to it. This display has impressed me for the price. Set up was easy, 5 minutes tops. It is large, and crisp. I would recommend to a friends vs spending $+ depending on your needs.

            Replaced my old 30" apple with this monitor. I was using dual displays for graphic design. This monitor blows away the apple as far as resolution is concerned and the ability to convert to portrait mode more than compensates for the slightly smaller size. I found the menu for adjustment kind of challenging initially but once I got the hang of it, I was able to calibrate and the results are great.

            Currently in studying computer science in college and this was a perfect monitor for coding. It has a great picture for movies and other media. It is working great and would recommend it!

            Comments about ASUS ASVN279QL 27" Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor:

            I was looking for an upgrade to my old 22" Samsung monitor on my home computer (general use, email, browsing). Was also looking for built in speakers to avoid the extra clutter. Set up was easy (plug and play), but access to the menu and making adjustments are not all that user friendly. With an HDMI connection I was able to lose the dedicated audio cord. The picture is decent. Had to tone down the settings (brightness and contrast) to get a good image. Colors are great, but text and some images while browsing are not real sharp. You will have to play with the settings to get something you are satisfied with. Built in speakers are fair, even for simply listening to audio in instructional video and online courses, but they serve my purposes. Fine for general use, but I think you would have to spend a bit more to get a solid image in a monitor this size.
