So far this LED MS series monitor from ASUS is the best one I have ever owned! The display it has is amazingly crisp, and the 1 million:1 contrast ratio combined with the 2ms response time... just amazing picture quality. And this bad boy is freaking sleek looking and is thin as hell.. great for saving space. It has this really cool ass ring stand that surprisingly works out quite well.
Only flaw I have noticed is the fact that this puppy doesn't have a standard mounting plate for aftermarket stands (i.e: Mine ) Also the HDMI cable that comes with it works out quite well too :)

ASUS makes top notch monitors especially when gaming is considered. Low dot pitch, low response latency, and amazing brightness.

I'd stay away from any TN monitor that's tilted back. Reason being if you look a TN monitor from bottom, the top part goes dark. But if you look TN monitor from top it's clear whole screen wide.

That's also the reason why I always have my screens tilted forward (that 5 degrees they go). Just see for yourself, move head to top/bottom.

Now if ASUS was super smart they would have flipped the panel on these 180 degrees? Highly doubt it though as every TN screen tilts that far back and they are all "wrong way around".

This screen is best placed on low desk, for clear picture.

Take couple pictures for me on 45 degrees top/bottom :) I'm also searching for a LED backlit full HD 22-24" and 23" could be spot on for me. Regular stand though, that would fall of my desk and I'd be http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Ggo9_VVtU...ti7uawsE/s400/ihasamega128627047974349078.jpg

My ASUS has no dead viewing angles, and that stand isn't fixed.
