Excellent monitor - Good value


Excellent picture quality. A very large monitor at a very reasonable cost through Newegg

Although the screen itself is matte (good), the bezel is very shiny (bad). I have no idea why Asus made the bezel shiny; you just see reflections in it like a mirror and dust and fingerprints show very clearly

HDMI....why? D Sub....why?


this VE278H 27" asus monitor would make a great paperweight but the price is a little high for that.

good color and sharpness for what its worth

2 HDMI Connections and one D Sub DVI, just a cable conversion from HDMI to DVI. So now you cant go full screen. I just paid for a 27" monitor that only shows 24.5". D Sub connections are for analog monitors which have not been selling...

Good Monitor


This monitor looks beautiful for what it is. Works well

No cons as of yet

Early impressions


Haven't tried the speakers. Colors seem correct but I have not considered this very closely, as it is not critical for me - if you need high accuracy for your work, find out more. This and VE278Q seem to be very similar variants of the model, but this...

Pleased with this in the first days. Clear, sharp image. No bad pixels. Easy setup. Stand does not wobble on a sturdy desk. DVI-to-HDMI cable included. Brightness, contrast, other visual characteristics are fine (see disclaimer below). No splotchiness,...

For me this replaces an older ASUS which was 1920 x 1200 (16 x 10 rather than 16 x 9). Unfortunately that ratio is no longer available - I miss those 230K pixels ; Controls are poorly labeled, and inputs are in awkward positions to attach cables to,...

fairly satisfied


grab some electrical tape to keep the power cable in unless you like your monitors an inch off the table get a different stand/mount or a riser

looks great, item is as described

taking an egg off because the power connection is loose. It will fall out if you move the monitor or touch the power cord near the connection. not a fan of the stand either but i knew it wasn't gonna be great when I ordered it ; video cables that came...

Great view


The view is beautiful on this screen. Easy set up and installation, attaches to my dual monitor stand with ease

When I tried to use the stand that came with the monitor, the tilt was locked in a down position. The tilt is the reason I bought this particular monitor

I had high hopes for this monitor


I'm definitely not going to get a replacement again or buy a monitor from Asus ever again. Debating on getting a refund or just keeping it since the dead pixels are far to the left and out of the way, not TOO noticeable but I still would never buy a...

Big screen ; Good response time ; Great price

After about 3 weeks of use, I turned it on one day and found a nice little red pixel in the middle of the screen. After a couple days of trying to fix the stuck pixel nothing worked, so I sent it out for a replacement ; I got my replacement today and...

I definately reccomend this product to anyone that loves amazing graphics and spectacular colors.

The contrast. That most definately defines this display. I have a two-monitor setup and one of them is this monitor and the other is slightly different, but it only has a 10000000:1 ratio which is lengths below this one ; I can honestly say that the...

Nothing really, I suppose if you want to have integrated sound, then this model isn't spectacular for that, but that's only hearsay because I have separate speakers
