I have owned several Asus monitors, including the Asus VS248H-P, which is rated 5 stars on Newegg, and a 120hz Asus VH236HE 120hz 3D monitor, which was quite nice. This monitor blows them away in color reproduction, I never knew Steam looked the way it does until I got this monitor... the blacks are black, the greys are grey, all the colors are just so beautiful, there is no way I am ever going back to non-IPS colors. I don't even care about the viewing angle, since I sit directly in front of my monitor. The colors alone are worth it to me. I notice no back light bleed or ghosting. Games look amazing. Rock on my friends, I am an IPS fan boy now.
