Great when it worked properly

 

When monitor was 4 months old first DVI port failed when at 6 month second port failed. It only works as an analog monitor. I contacted ASUS for replacement but I was ignored.

Huge monitor

DVI ports have both failed

Got on sale, couldn't be beat, especially how early it came.

 

This is my first review on Newegg, and I plan on doing more for my PC parts, some people got defective ones (dead pixels, etc.) but mine came in just fine. No problems, solid build, almost easy menu and bright. Right now I'm on an old laptop, runs this...

I have always set high standards for my Asus products, and this is no exception. This monitor is crisp, massive and even looks good on the outside. It is very bright which may bother people but it doesn't bother me. This thing is gigantic. I used to...

Bright, doesn't bother me but if it does you can turn it down in the menu ; Huge, it's good but you might need to rearrange your desk - if you have a small desk, don't buy a 27" monitor though

Works Flawlessly w/ Linux!

 

Alot of people here are claiming about ambiguous display configuration problems, like it's too bright, or the colors being off. I haven't played games in years, and I'm not a videophile. To me, this monitor looks great, and I just use redshift(f.lux...

I needed more desktop space and I definitely got it with this honker! Worked flawlessly with an up to date Arch system(It's sad that I should fear something like a monitor not working). It also came with all the relevant cables, including hdmi to dvi

Great large screen at its price.

 

I would have given this monitor 5 stars if not for the bezel and having to leave permanent marks and scrapes on it just to get the thing straight. The tearing has been an issue since I switched from an old crt monitor so I cant deduct points for that....

No dead pixels, in use ever day for over 2 years now. Several modes to choose from so that almost everyone should be able to find a setting they like with few tweaks. Relatively small footprint. 2ms response time and 10ms input lag time is very good...

Being a large screen the tearing in some games is nearly unbearable. The screen itself is matte but the bezel is glossy... super glossy. It acts as a mirror for any glare or other light source so it kills immersion in gaming when the lights are on....

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

NO... I do not want to buy 3rd party software to keep a product I bought up to date, nor do I want to use pirated software drivers. I still hold Asus at a very good choice for computer hardware.

This product is a very nice and so far reliable product even without current drivers ; I have always held Asus to be a very good choice for computer hardware

There is only one problem I have with this product. This would be when I bought this product I was under the impression that I would have drivers for it via disk or an internet available source "without having to buy a program to do so", I was wrong......

ASUS VE278H

 

I bought this monitor to replace my old 21.5" I had been using. This monitor is absolutely perfect! It was a little bright, but there are 6 preset settings that you can easily switch from, or you can fine tune it to what you like. The thing I like the...
