That monitor looks nice, but it appears it isn't 1440p.

How did OC.ru get their hands on one already?

Anyway, AH-IPS for both the 23" and 27" models right? Do the monitors feature LCD conditioning in case of burn-in?

Looks like they're on the more expensive side, unless NA and EU prices vary greatly.

I can pre-order the 23" here in aus for $290.
So I'm not sure if that fares up well against the competition

The ViewSonic VX2770 costs 300-320$ here (Canada) and the LG IPS277L is 350$+, no idea how much the Asus will be, but Asus models have the most adjustable overdrive settings.

One thing that is really annoying about these slim bezel'd IPS is that the inner black bezel border is such a deep black it makes the displays black levels always look light and stand out, the dell S2740L has the same issue too. I don't have a picture of my ViewSonic's bezel yet but I have an S2740L example:

Look at the letterbox bars

The effect is far less pronounced on the Asus/LG/ViewSonic/AOC, but still distracting, especially during letter box movies. It's too bad too because these displays typically have 1000-1200:1 contrast ratios and outclass most TN's and other IPS/PLS in terms of black levels.

Svete hardware has a review and the measured the pixel response times properly with an oscilloscope, ignore digital versus response time+input lag sections, they use outdated methods.

Svete hardware used the HDMI port with a Nvidia card, unless certain custom drivers are installed or the Ycbcr setting is used in the nividia control panel, the contrast,black levels will be terrible, which is evident in their review given the measured 280:1 contrast.

LAS VEGAS--Asus unveiled a new ultra-wide 29-inch LED monitor at CES 2013. The widescreen MX299Q boasts a 21:9 aspect ratio, 2,560x1,080 IPS panel, and should be available for sale in the first quarter of 2013 at $599.

The MX299Q monitor has a slim profile with sundial-style stand, a frameless edge-to-edge screen, and built-in speakers co-developed by Bang & Olufsen, ICEpower, and Asus. Ports on the monitor include HDMI/MHL, dual-link DVI, and DisplayPort.

The ASUS MX299Q is priced at $599...

If it was priced way lower than the 2560x1440 monitors that are out right now, I'd be totally sold, but at this price it is not worth it and the "ultrawide" only seems like a marketing gimmick while cutting costs on quality...

The MX239H and MX279H are up for sale on newegg now
