Very big. Unexpectedly so - I thought my wife had a 30" and I wanted two of those, but apparently I should have measured - she had a measly 27".
Can't hear any noises from it
The power brick is humongous but who cares, it's under the desk
No dead pixels
CONS: The stand is a bit wobbly compared to my wife's 27" Dell
No cable loop to hold cables together
It's very heavy and well built, the stand is very good!

This monitor is perfect, with no dead pixels. The colors are vivid and even, and the 2560x1600 resolution is fantastic. This is on a Windows 7 64-bit OS, using the DVI-D connection, which is being driven by the built in video chipset (AMD A85X (Hudson D4)) that came with my Asus F2A85-V Pro motherboard.
Regarding heat, this monitor clocks in at 106F on the screen, and mid 90s on the frame. I figure any monitor of this size will carry some heat, just nature of the beast, ya know?
The power button is indeed on the back, and it took me a couple weeks to get used to it ... after which point, it's honestly no big deal. The monitor does come with five buttons on it: One for power, up/down brightness, and two buttons that don't do anything at all.
So far, I've owned this monitor for a little over two months and it's been working like a champ. Here's hoping it has a longer lifespan than the 305T.
For those who are using the DisplayPort (DP) connection, I'd advise against it if you have other options. DP technology is a little weird in that if you have multiple monitors connected and turn off the DP monitor, Windows sees it like you're unplugging a device and will move all your icons over to the other screen. This is not a monitor-specific problem as it will occur with any DP connection, though it may vary based on video card/chipset/drivers. On Google, a lot of people are complaining about it, though.
I am currently running 2560x1600 on this monitor via DVI-D, and running 1920x1080 on a second monitor via HDMI without any problems. I'm glad this monitor supports DVI-D. I have not tried the other connections.
PROS: Great price, fast shipping, strong colors, 2560x1600 resolution, perfect picture
CONS: No USB ports
PROS: Great Price. The colors are amazing. Sturdy Build.
CONS: Buttons on the back. (though after initial adjusting it don't matter)
hope someone can help me solve the problem.
BTW all my graphics drivers are up to date
PROS: Huge size, Great Resolution
CONS: No height adjustment on the monitor. It sits a little bit low for my tastes.
The only downside is that there's no HDMI port, and the only picture controls are contrast and brightness — no RGB levels, no screen geometry, etc. Just make sure if you're running a Mac (not sure about the PC side) you run an advanced calibration, and your monitor will be good to go!
PROS: Lots of screen real estate. Good contrast and black levels. Superb Value
CONS: Limited picture controls. Dual-link DVI input only.
Great packaging, everything worked out the box, colors needed adjusting
My only real complaint is that the anti glare coating is a bit too aggressively added, you can see some graininess on white or light colored backgrounds
PROS: Size, Price, resolution
CONS: The anti glare coating is a bit too aggressive
