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

Should be the new standard in screen size!

 

Great for gaming great for work, great for movies what else do you need? Oh and to answer your question 27" is just right!

This is my 2nd Asus 27" Monitor, High quality here guys/gals. 2 hdmi conections in back and VGA although why you would disgrace this monitor with VGA is beyond me but you could if you wanted to.

Blown Away

 

Just an all around awesome monitor. The bezel on this thing is virtually non existent. Sound is 10/10 and I upgraded from a 720p TV to this beauty and I'm never going back!

-speakers on this computer are phenomenal -the picture is just crystal clear, makes me wish I had new glasses -set up is super easy all you have to do is screw in the base plug it in and go to town -some people have said they had a dead pixel or two...

-there was one scratch on the base but this is a refurb so I expected there to be at least some cosmetic blemishes and even then I had to look for something to put in con

Bought refurbished with 0 issues

 

Edit: Ive had this monitor for a little while now, the adjustment buttons on the bottom are very sensitive but they're impossible to find in a dark room which is actually annoying. Overally still a really good purchase.

Monitor came quickly and well packaged in original box with vga, power and hdmi to dvi cable. No dead pixels, colors are vibrant and speakers are surprisingly good. Monitor was practically new, with no scraches, if i bought this new and gave me this...

No hdmi cable sadly, monitor is pakaged in Styrofoam but nothing to cover the screen during shipping. Blacks seem washed out and theres light bleeding from the bottom edges of monitor, this is expected though because of how its designed.

Buy It!

 

Awesome Power management profile. Crisp color, sleek design, great for gaming. Beautiful Design.

I think the stand could be a bit more solid but its not a functional issue just asthetic.
