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.

This is a beautiful display. I thought my 1080p monitor was good...this monitor puts it to shame. The color and contrast are great.

from completed build My Editing Machine

This monitor has a beautiful display. Very sharp and Very clear.

from completed build Peruvian - Watercooled

Just great. 1440p is a great stepping stone if you don't want to pay for the power to drive 4K. Also has great colors and good accuracy for Photoshop and Premiere. The height adjust and pivot and swivel stand is amazing as well, although the bezels are a little thick. I think that 27 inch 1080p is too grainy, so this is perfect, and the 980 Ti can drive it well.
