I'm torn between these two monitors, I have read about some backlight bleeding issues about the asus but they were few and far in between.
On the upside ASUS gives all kinds of inputs and 4 3.0 USB ports.
Right now both of these cost about the same ~ $275 and have similar specs.

Both the companies do give 3 year warranty, but one thing to consider is that I will be buying this in US but then moving to India. So I wanted to ask about warranty on these.
I read that DELL allows you to transfer the warranty from one country to another. I searched on the ASUS website but couldn't find anything about international warranty, so kinda unsure about that.

Thanks for the link. So.. I'm leaning towards the dell now.

Anyone who thinks the asus is better?

Every site I read put the Dell ahead. Plus Asus hasn't been really good with warranty lately.

I actually grabbed 2 last week when they were on sale, to add with my current Dell u2412m. It's only been a week since I've set them up with my Dell, first impression was the Asus monitors had extremely better color out of the box. Although I heard that before buying them anyway. I then used an i1-pro to calibrate them under user settings and then once more yielding excellent color reproduction. I use a U2711 at work and bought the asus monitors to try a 3 way setup rather than a 27 or 30". Just in case your wondering why I went this route, since I know if I don't like it in a week it can go right back. To make the difference between both short and sweet, after calibration on all 3, the only truly noticeable difference to me is the slightly lower contrast levels on the Asus. Both look great, produce beautiful colors and have no defects. There is slight IPS glow on one of the Asus monitors as well as on the Dell, however it's hardly worth sending back over. Playing games I don't notice any input lag etc. On the Dell I do find the coating a bit harsher than the Asus but that's just nit picking. I will say the Asus stand trumps the dell's and was a shame that I didn't need it. Beyond that if you have access to a quality spectrophotometer like I used the only difference really is the aesthetics. Because at 259.99AR it's not something I would use professionally, and I doubt most people would be using a calibration device 5x the cost of the monitor. The one thing I did find odd when researching the Asus was the prad review stated it would of been given a very good or good rating except they were unable to calibrate it. Maybe in Europe they had a different version, however my user profile provided me access to change colors etc. while they stated only brightness/contrast could be changed and reviewed it based on manual changes and then testing.
