Again, my impression on this monitor comes from comparing it to a 2 year old 24" 1080p Syncmaster so bear that in mind. I can't compare The Asus to the comparable Samy or the Dells. That being said, yeah, the shows that I've streamed have looked fantastic. I was really surprised in a good way. I'm not saying that it's the best monitor on the market but I don't know what I would have gotten from Samsung or Dell that would have been worth the extra expense 'to me'. My girlfriend and I streamed 'The Bachelor Canada' and from across the room last night she was genuinely impressed, calling the picture 'Gorgeous' as the show was set on shores of Newfoundland and starred really good looking people. *If* the other units mentioned have an advantage over the Asus then those advantages must be related to very technical aspects that as a main stream user I'm just simply not noticing. This thing (like the Samsung 850 and Dell U27's I'm sure) is definitely in another class from 'regular' monitors.
I do think I'd like the chance to compare this to the other monitor I was considering, the Samsung 850. Eventually I'll hook this Asus up to an HTPC and upgrade my main rig to Z77 with a thunderbolt port with an Apple Cinema Display for commercial art use, but for now I have no complaints at all about this monitor and there have been a couple of pleasant surprises.Edited by BillOhio - 11/10/12 at 12:35pm
