Asus MX279H

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

So far, so good.


Bought this for my new gaming rig I built, no issues, no dead pixels. I don't see what people are saying about the control panel buttons being too sensitive. It's perfectly fine, people complain far too much.

Solid monitor, great picture, solid build, solid base, good response time ; Speakers are about on or just below par with my Thunderbolt display. It's just kinda, there. However, sound is not why I bought the monitor

Does not come with an HDMI->HDML. It comes with a HDMI->DVI, but not a plain cable. Just a heads up

2nd day. dead pixel.


Stylish design. IPS. Light. Cheap

It's been 2 days. I have a dead pixel ; All the Pros don't matter once you start seeing dead pixels... and it's only been the second day

Great Monitors


I use these for dual screen software development. Lots of room, no squinting or side scrolling to read that 1000th line of nested code.

Big and bright with really small bezels. I bought two and they sit next to each other nice and close. Very aesthetically pleasing, too. They up the real estate value of the whole desk neighborhood

Not mountable

Beautiful Picture


Some reviews Blast the speakers on the monitor, though they do not sound like a surround sound setup (sarcasm), they are OK. I don't use it, I have it hooked up to my Afterglow wireless headset with Dolby Surround Sound. But if you buy a monitor like...

This monitor has a very stylish look with a beautiful picture to back it up. I swapped my LG 32inch TV for this and haven't looked back. The picture is sharp, no bleed, no dead pixels, and easy to set up. The options are easy to navigate onscreen and...

I don't see this as a con ,but the only con I can think of is that the monitor does not come with any DVI connections, its 100% HDMI with 1 VGA. It does come with a DVI to HDMI cable, but my cards all have HDMI so I just used that

Consumer review by:

You can't mount these to monitor arms


These monitors have been an expensive mistake. Avoid.


So, another thing I just found wrong with these monitors is that YOU CAN'T MOUNT THEM TO MONITOR ARMS ; I bought these for a dual monitor setup, now I can't optimize space on my desk because of a terrible design decision to not put mounts on the back ;...

Not the best money can buy...


The monitor looks good, has a good picture and arrived in perfect condition. However, my box arrived with the tape opened and the tape on some of the components broken as well. Someone opened this box up and used this monitor and then put it back in...

This screen has a beautiful picture and the price was right for a quality name brand like Asus. It does have a Kensington lock option to keep the monitor secured (I have no use for that) and it comes with a nice variety of cables

No VESA mounting option. This monitor must remain on its' stand. It cannot be mounted on a wall. The monitor looks like the screen goes right to the edge, but Asus cleverly made the frame the same color and blended it with the screen. Even in person,...

Pretty junky


I really wished I bought a different pair of monitors.


Cheap ; You will hate the touch sensor buttons at the bottom left corner of the panel ; You will hate accidentally touching the wrong button because they are squeezed together so closely, then having to touch those buttons thirty times to get out of a...
