Rated 5 out of 5 by Hawkzz Fantastic Monitor
as always you get a Fantastic monitor from Asus.
The colour's are Fantastic and crisp, great for looking at photos and editing them.
Movies look great and the fast screen makes a perfect viewing pleasure, black to white looks great to,
this is a great all round Monitor that i would recommend for photo editing, office, movies and TV and of course gaming, FPS people might find it a little to slow but TBO it's great for anything else with a great price to,,
To be just perfect a turning base would of been handy but at this price you cant grumble but still worth the 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by David67 Perfect for video editing as an external monitor
Before I chose this monitor I watched a lot of YouTube reviews on a shortlist of monitors I'd highlighted on the Scan website. I knew from the good customer service I'd experienced from Scan that I would buy from them anyway so my only choice was which monitor would suit my application best. I shoot full 1080p anamorphic video. The raw footage once stretched in premiere pro from the camera is 3840 x 1080, that on a normal HD monitor looks very narrow, although it is finally trimmed to the standard movie screen ratio of 2.4:1 before its assembled for the first rough cut edit. The full resolution of 2560 x 1440 for this monitor means I can, for the first time review my footage at 1 to 1 without going to a 4K monitor. The first time I played some of my footage back on this monitor blew me away. I had considered upgrading my camera to 4K until I saw what my camera was actually producing viewed on a decent review monitor. Out of the box, it's a bit bright and the colours are slightly oversaturated but that is easily fixed with a good screen colour calibration tool which I intend to do before I use it for basic colour correcting my video. I understand from a certain reliable source that this particular monitor reacts very well to calibrating for basic colour grading work.
I am very pleased with this monitor for my video work; it's also great for viewing Blu-ray movies. I am not a gamer so don't know how well it's suited to running games, I know gamers are pretty picky about things that don't effect me for my video work. The build quality is also pretty good, especially the stand. I have mine mounted using a VESA wall mount for convenience so it was a pity to hide the extremely well made stand away in a dark cupboard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zekan High quality item
I will keep this simple. It is priced quite accurately since it is a high resolution screen. I have to say at first that the overall quality build and experience while in use is not disappointing what so ever. It delivers what you expect it to.
In my example, my desk is DIY and I have two 27inch monitors, one being LG. Side by side. This Asus monitor is placed well forward in front of you in comparison to LG. The stand itself is much higher quality but in my case where I have an 80cm depth desk it's quite close. Just bear in mind that it might need to be placed a little further out in front of you in order to prevent your eyes hurting as it is quite bright in standard setting.
Overall 4.5/5 !
