Asus VE278Q 27 Inch Monitor Review

 

A growing number of people are gradually learning about the benefits of using a higher resolution screen. Long gone are the days of 1024×768 resolution as the latest Steam survey in December 2011 has highlighted. 17.59% of gamers are using a 1680×1050...

Good pricing.

Panel inconsistencies and minor backlighting problems hamper the overall quality of the image.

Beautiful picture

 

The picture is the biggest pro, beautiful colors and contrast. Easy to set up. I also like the size, it fits my computer area quite nicely.

None.

It just did not do it form me.

 

Like I said I had to return it. Later on turned into a great situation. Did some research and found my way to a website that starts with A and ends with N where I found the 278H, a 2 year newer model. It was 3$ dollars cheaper than the 278Q. The 278H...

More real estate and picture in picture, which I did not get a chance to try.

After 2 hours of operating time a dead pixel popped up. Terribly disappointing seeing as my previous monitor was open box and came with a dead pixel. This monitor was brand new, shame. RMA'd and due to stock it was only available for refund. Apparently...

Big, black and beautiful

 

Aside from the pixel, this monitor is wonderful. Especially at a $200 price point. Looks/feels like a $300+ piece.

The screen really does look beautiful. Crystal clear, great blacks. Even includes speakers!

Mine has one funny pixel that sometimes turns red on dark/black images, so that's a bit annoying. Most of the time I forget it's there and can't even find it, but I've never had an LCD screen with a defective pixel before so I expect nothing but...

Nice Monitor But Not Without Quirks

 

I've seen other people on the internet with the same exact problem and no solution. If you buy this monitor, beware of it's pitfalls.

Clean looking, bright sharp colors, plethora of control options.

Whenever the computer sleeps, the auto detect continuously sounds the device connect and device disconnect every 4-5 seconds untill you wake the computer from sleep mode. It's enough to drive you crazy. I emailed Asus tech support and got some generic...

Good Product

 

Excellent color and brightness, low power.

Asus did not give me my rebate even though I sent them the right stuff. Tracefree only works for a little while or until you change the setting, after which ghosting appears until you set it to 0. This also happened on a 24" I bought from them.

Not worth the effort with the refurb

 

First two monitors showed up with major issues. I'm hoping this third one works correctly. Mind you I had to send each one back, get the RMA approved then wait for standard shipping all three times. Newegg isn't what it used to be.

Long Shelf Life Can mean Good Things

 

Just bought a second one of these to match the one I bought in September 2014. Really says something that a monitor that was available a year and a half ago is still on sale today. First one's still rocking (DVI-input only, so I can't can't say...

Nice & sharp a year and a half ago and nice & sharp today. Old one still at default settings so new one matches perfectly. GREAT VALUE!

Plastic edging is a bit wide for multi-monitor setups. But could buy several of these for the cost of a single Other.

Not new anymore!

 

ASUS was nice enough to issue an RMA, and fortunately I saved the original box and all the packaging so I shipped the monitor back. ASUS repaired the monitor within a day and had it shipping back to me the next. Upon opening the box, which was not an...

27" for an ok price.

Screen had one dead pixel from day one. No big deal! However, within six months a line of dead pixels appeared across three quarters of the top of the screen.

Can't believe this past a quailty check

 

1. It shipped quickly 2. Newegg has a good return policy

I will start with the fact that I know this is a refurb. I have ordered refurbs from Newegg in the past with no problems but I was sadly disappointed this time. I know when I order a refurb I am not getting a "like new" product so don't think I'm a...
