Fantastic monitor for the price and performance, I also like how the buttons are on the side, that way I can use a monitor arm and have the bottom of the monitor touching the desk, giving it the feel of a giant laptop.
Would strongly recommend IPS panels, and at 27", I would not go lower than 1440p (or QHD) resolution as anything lower will make everything look slightly stretched/blurry, nor higher as that will require a better GPU (Don't fall for the cheap 27" 1080p resolution monitors).
This monitor was very bright, something easily reduced in the monitors settings though, I also found that Standard and Gaming modes strained my eyes a bit, however sRGB not only gives me the best colors, but I get no eye strain even with prolonged use.

If you want to buy a 27' IPS screen, and you have the power to run games in 1440p, this screen is a great choice. For graphical works, it is also brilliant. However, if you can wait a year or so (I guess early 2016), I think you'll be able to get 27' IPS 144p screens with g-sync at a similar price.

I was equivocating between a 24" monitor and a 27". Since this seemed like a great value for a 27" with 2560 x 1440 I went for it and I'm glad that I did. The monitor tilts and swivels on the stand which rotates on a lazy susan turntable. The resolution is wonderful.

Have had problems with the screen randomly starting to shake and tear, then turn off while the computer runs in the background, before tuning back on a second later. Looks good when its working though.

BenQ is the way to go. Could be brighter, but would never consider buying anything else unless the price was EVEN with this one.

I love this monitor. The response time is not really noticeable. IPS > fast TN any day.

Nice monitor huge difference from a 1080p TV. Also the colors are nice since it's IPS.

It's a 1440p 60Hz IPS panel, and you get just that. Viewing angles are solid, colors are beautiful (especially after calibration), and the stand offers tilt, swivel, and height adjustment. What really makes this a good monitor though are its frequent sales, hitting as low as $160 at times. I snagged this for $207 at Newegg's eBay store, but it does go lower on the rare occasion. $200 is still a great price for what it offers though.
In summary, this is definitely the best 1440p 60Hz IPS panel for your money only because it goes on sale so often. Do not spent more than ~$200 on this monitor.
