Asus MX279H 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit LCD Monitor Review

 

I'll go ahead and just get this out of the way and say that the Asus MX279H is not a 4K monitor , but a 1920 x 1080. This particular monitor appeared before 4K was the next big thing, but there is no reason why the second-best can't still be good.

Very high viewing angle at 178 degrees ; Bang & Olufsen 32 diameter speakers ; Tracer Free Technology ; Extremely High Contrast rate at 80 million to 1 ; Excellent aesthetic design ; QuickFit Virtual Scale

1080p might seem too low-res in today's 4K market ; Colors bleed slightly, especially in gaming ; Control buttons are too touch-sensitive

If I had to summarize the MX279H with a single sentence, it would be: “Good, but not too good”. For the price you are getting, you are getting a good display, even if it is not the latest. If this is okay with you, and you like its design, and the 27...

Asus MX279H review

 

The Asus MX279H is a very attractive monitor. Its frameless 27in AH-IPS display is just 18mm thick, and it has a touch-sensitive menu bar running along the bottom of the screen. Sadly, its stand is fixed, but there's plenty of screen tilt to help you...

We’d prefer a higher maximum resolution, but this is a beautifully designed monitor with great image quality

Best Value Monitor For The Price

 

My refurbished purchase was missing a 3 pin cable that plugs into the power adapter and the wall. I had to use an old laptop adapter that I found lying around.

Thin bezel Rich colors Silver accents and circular base Responsive Touch sensitive menu Great contrast Glossy black panel Lots of screen space and a great aspect ratio Glare free coating Built-in speakers

No 2k or 4k support Only 60hz Response rate not lower than 5ms Built-in speakers are weak and sound bad

like new at reduced price

 

Be on the look-out for Newegg deals that will price a brand new 27" monitor very close the price of these refurbished units with full warranty rather than the measly refurbished warranty period. The $10 or so you save on refurbished monitor might not...

I purchased 3 units. Two arrived packaged like brand new monitors with all cables placed in individual factory sealed bags including DVI/HDMI connector caps and foam padding and plastic film protecting the back of the monitor and stand. The 3rd monitor...

Why do manufacturers insist on building these monitors with speakers? This is a waste of space for clearly sub-bar audio performance. No VESA mount. The circular stand is attractive but is too short and elevation of screen from the table top can't be...

awesome deal

 

Beautiful picture, very slim bezel, great if your going for a double or triple screen setup. You can't beat the picture quality for the price! Very crisp and vibrant colors on asus ips monitors compared to the aoc ips then bezel that's why I went ahead...

On con about this monitor is that it doesn't come with mounting holes in the back to hang on the wall or stand. So you have to buy adapter plates, but another 100 bucks is well worth the investment on these beauties

DOA

 

Beautiful display and design, 2x hdmi, and borderless frame are awesome.

Dead on arrival. Connected to power outlet, connected to display, and nothing. Triple checked connection, tested outlet power and grounding, and everything was good on my end. Possibly a bad AC power adapter. Possibly a bad display. Either way,...

Affordable and Easy to set up

 

Affordable 1080p Easy to set up Has speakers built in

Anti glare coating takes away from picture only 60hz Speakers are not loud enough

Beautiful monitor!

 

Was worried about buying a refurbished monitor but I really can't recommend this enough. It's a gorgeous screen even if it could use a higher pixel ratio. For $160 I don't think you can do much better than this.

Great looking screen and design. Very thin physical bezel but there is a bit of a gap (as shown in pictures) This is a very good screen if your looking for a large 1080p screen that looks great and at an incredible price!

This screen definitely pushes 1080p to the limit. When I first turned it on it was noticeable that it could do for some extra pixels. But I knew I was buying a 1080p monitor so I feel I can't take an egg. Was very surprised that it was shipped to me in...
