        Comments about Asus 27" Black LED Computer Monitor:

        First and foremost you're buying it for Abt - no better experience in my opinion. I only buy from the reliable (ie - [@] ...) and when you can get it for the best deal (not everytime but alot of the time) then it's the perfect buy. The Asus Monitor sales itself with it's Quality and Performance as well as the TVs, Receivers, Speakers and the other items I have purchased from Abt. But throw in Abt's Sales and Customer Service, it's just a no brainer.

                Comments about Asus 27" Black LED Computer Monitor:

                Pros: I received the monitor in today after waiting for about a month because of limited supplies. Am I glad I waited. 1080p is amazing. I have a Radeon 5570HD video card and with this monitor I have to say, "Stunning!" I like to edit videos and pictures, so I am very graphic oriented and a detail kind of guy. At first setup the image was light and ok but once I adjusted the settings to Theater presets....wow! Rich vivid colors, deep black and HD. Even really small text is super easy to read nice smooth edges. I found myself feeling like I had lots of space for programs and viewing, with the 27" desktop no more crunched feeling while operating multiple window programs. I really don't see how anyone could complain about it. A very impressive monitor and the price is extremely good compared to other monitors in it's class. I believe it's the cheapest one! Setup was super easy, like I said there are color presets that make the monitor beautiful. I had to play with the DVI and the HDMI connections at first to get the computer to recognize the connection but it was easy. I use the HDMI as my main video connection now. The speakers are fine but nothing impressive, but it dosen't really matter because I use a surround sound 5.1 system. 
                I was trying to decide between this monitor or the HP 2711X. I feel that I made the right choice. The HP has BriteView (glossy screen) like the Mac, and Asus is matte finish screen. I love the gloss of my iPhone 4 and the Mac look and was concerned that the matte finish wouldn't display a rich HD detail vivid look, but I was worried for nothing. I'm glad I got the matte, no reflective glare and ever as brilliant as the Mac, and HP displays, and cheaper. I recommend to using the auto light sensor, that way in a dark room your eyes wont get blasted by the brightness. 

                Cons: I just wish I had more $ to buy more for my family and friends, because, "They gotta see this!" nice!!!!!!

                  Comments about Asus 27" Black LED Computer Monitor:

                  I bought two of these. I have used them about 2 to 3 weeks now and very happy. My primary use is to use with Adobe software; Premiere Pro, Photo Shop, Dream weaver... The picture quality is great.

                  The only cons I have found is if you switch your inputs you better have one there to connect to it. I switched from DVI input to HDMI input. Once I did I didn't have the HDMI connected and tried to change it back. I couldn't even get the option to change it back to come up until I hooked the HMDI into it. The other con is the stand that it rest on. It's not of the best quality, but it gets the job done. This are the only reasons it didn't get 5 stars.

                  I'm very pleased and would suggest this to anyone.
