I will report back later tonight on whether or not I find any issues.
I just got mine set up a few hours ago. It's not quite as huge of a step up from my $300 ASUS VE278Q 1080p monitor as I was hoping that it would be, but I have no regrets buying it. The default brightness of 75 I had to turn down to 50 as it was straining my eyes. I did some quick tests, and so far the only negative thing I can say is that there is one apparent dead pixel about an inch from the left bezel in the center of the screen. I'm not going to exchange it though as it's only noticeable when I am looking for it on a black screen. The backlight bleed seems to be extremely minor and what I would expect to be on all monitors of this type. I have not noticed any crosshatching yet, although I haven't really looked hard for it. No strange buzzing noises. I will post a picture after the sun goes down. It's a June 2013 REV A00 monitor.
One gripe that I have now though, and it's likely unrelated to the monitor, but rather Windows and/or my graphics card (AMD Radeon 7970), is that I cannot seem to have a dual monitor set up with my ASUS VE278Q. My VE278Q just displays "DVI NO SIGNAL" when hooked up as my secondary monitor, yet the monitor is still detected by Windows. Oddly enough, my ASUS VE247H
(24 inch) will
work as a secondary monitor. I am using two DVI dual link cables for each monitor. I was under the impression that I could hook up two 27" monitors to my PC. I did a quick google search and didn't come up with much, although I plan to dig deeper once I get around to it, as the 24" is rather sufficient for a secondary monitor anyway.
