I have just switched from an old 4:3 20 LCD to this monitor a few days ago. I have three issues so far. 1. The software CD packed with the monitor contained software ONLY for notebook PC's, I have no idea what they might have wanted to provide. 2. There was no software for the built-in web-cam. Windows 7 Professional found the camera and applied Microsoft drivers dated 2006. Since there are no microphones and I already have a web-cam, this is not a problem for me. Although the Asus web site claims to have a utility for the monitor and for Windows 7, the utility could not be downloaded. 3. The VESA mount is set to high. I mounted the monitor on a desk mount arm and found that, since the bracket mounts well above the center of gravity, the LCD keeps tilting down. I could not tighten the arm enough to prevent this. The only way I could solve the problem was to sit the monitor on something, defeating the purpose of having the monitor on a moveable arm.

On the plus side - this is a tremendous monitor, owing much to the 10:16 format instead of the normal 9:16. The 3 watt speakers are more than adequate. I do not do any gaming so I can't comment any further.
