    Asus VW266H 25.5" 1080p Widescreen LCD

    Currently ringing in at $420 on Newegg, I picked this monitor up on a combo deal with a 4870, and I have zero complaints so far.

    Pixels: I have encountered no dead pixels yet, although it has only been a couple of days.

    Visuals: Of course this is beautiful, no weirdness, everything is sharp. Left4dead was nice with the new resolution.

    Ghosting, input delay: None noticeable.

    Viewing Angle: Incredible! I can't find a place in my room where I can't read the screen.

    Setup was simple, the back port has connections for DVI (which I am currently using), HDMI, and Composite, so if I end up getting a 360, it can go on the monitor as well. The only weird thing is that bright colors seem to be a little over saturated with white, but I haven't messed with any settings yet, so I'll work on that and see if I can fix it.

    All in all, this is an excellent, slick looking monitor that has positive reviews all around, especially when compared to similarly priced displays.

    The only issue I'm having so far is the oversaturation with white, which isn't present when I'm gaming. I'm pretty sure it's just a setting I haven't touched yet. I loaded up Mirror's Edge last night to give the graphics card a workout. The monitor is gorgeous.
