The OSD array

Make all your dreams come true with this useful life customization array. Wait, no. It only allows you to customize your monitor's screen. Sorry.

Big stand

That's some stand, huh? Asus apparently wants to ensure its monitors' stability and then some. It's just too bad about the swivel mechanism...

I don't like the swivel implementation. It works, but it keeps the monitor from being truly stable and when in use, rotates the entire chassis, instead of just the screen.
