Just got this monitor a few days ago, couldnt be happier. The picture quality is actually really good for a TN Panel, and the 1ms response time and 144hz(for the games that you can push that high), it's definitey recommend. All my games have a new smoother feeling to them, can't quite explain it, but really like it.

I have that monitor. And yes, the colour depth is ok. It's not as amazing as an IPS panel, but then not much really is. For a TN panel though its fairly impressive.

Also if you use the lightboost mod here: http://www.blurbusters.com/zero-motion-blur/lightboost/
The motion is so silky smooth. It's just excellent.

will the picture be better then the ve248h? Thats the tn panel i have currently. i put it next to the mx279h which is my ips pannel and the ips looks better

Im asking this because i need to replace the ips due to bad light bleed. but Im not sure if i should get the one you guys mentioned

I can also vouch and I also own the Asus monitor. I'm a color nut when it comes to monitors but I bought the Asus because I wanted to stop using Vsync because I hate screen tearing but don't like input lag. So I sucked it up and bought the Asus one and after using it for like 2 days I knew I made the right choice. It doesn't compare to IPS panels when it comes to color correction of course but if you calibrate it right it's pretty decent. The best thing however is I don't use vsync with all my games now and I barely get any screen tearing, if any at all. I just use a frame rate cap of 144fps since i have the refresh rate of 144hz and everything runs super smooth. I noticed a huge difference in response when playing FPS games and now I can't go back to the old vsync input lag mode anymore. Also, everything I do on the desktop and just moving your mouse around to do the many functions of the computer is smooth as butter. So yes, I recommend the Asus monitor.

I recently got an Asus VX238, and its a good monitor for the price I paid for it - $150.
