Best monitor I have ever owned


Finally got this for under $300. Stand is easy to adjust, controls are simple and accessible.

Quick easy setup. Great MLB picture

Price is still a little high but you get what you pay for

A happy VE278Q gamer


Monitor itself is fantastic, at a viewing distance of 2-3 feet you cannot notice the higher ppi per inch nexto my s23a950 120hz monitor colours out the box are ace, aswell as its responsiveness whilst using a dvi connection and some tampering the...

Colours amazing out the box ; Response time and input lag ( not noticeable to the human eye once adjusted trace free to 40 game mode and dvi connection input used) ; Matte screen ; Sharp text

Would Have Liked a Higher resolution( closer viewing image quality is superb when sitting at fov distance of around 2-3 feet) ; Stand is horrible ; Plastic frame

ASUS monitors are the best


ASUS monitors come with a lot of features for the price. Integrated speakers, HDMI port, cables included, solid build and great performance. I've now bought over 3 different ASUS monitors the last being this 27 inch monitor, and 100% satisfied with all 3

It's not 120hz

3 month review


I am still very pleased with the monitor and for the price I paid I would certainly buy it again. As it is you either have to lean way over to see if it is on or off or you have to place a mirror on your desktop to see if the light is on. Perhaps the...

I previously reviewed this monitor as being 5 stars and I am still very satisfied with the monitor and it's overall operation. However, I have identified one deficiency that irritates me to no end about the monitor as I have spelled out in the cons...

The power LED is next to impossible to see from the front of the monitor. You have to lean over to see if the monitor is turned on or off. At first I was thinking that the power switch was flaky because at times I would have to press the switch twice...

Best thing since sliced bread.


Seeing as i was using a 19" CRT monitor(VGA connection) since pretty much the stone age, going to this product has blown my mind ; Im a avid movie watcher, gamer and photographer and this has blown new life into pretty much everything i do ; Games are...

I gave 5 stars as the quality of the product is superb. If the following mattered to me personally i would of docked an egg ; 1) Install directions(I.E. Manual). 3 sentences in english. Although im pretty sure it had every possible written and spoken...

No dead pixels found. Good even color. Seems to work as it should. Long warranty

None found yet. I hope that it doesn't fail somewhere down the line

ASUS VE278Q Black 27" 1920x1080 2ms Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor


wish I would have got the 144 kHz but after buying 3 it's too late now but I am very happy with my eyefinity set-up , I'm going to buy 3 more for my upper set

Great size for gaming , watching movies ; Fast response ; I bought 3 of these now and not one dead pixel

only con I think is that its only 60 kHz

Update to: Yellowish tainting of blue gradients


This is an update to my review below, as Newegg doesn't allow review edits to reflect an updated situation. Asus tech support has been very helpful and friendly to help me get my discoloration issue troubleshooted, and though they weren't able to find...

Large screen, crisp display, vibrant colors, decent response time, options to reduce ghosting and corona motion effects, decent viewing angle

In Scenery Mode, Blue gradients towards the lighter end of the spectrum have a yellowish tainting to it. (Fixed issue!)

speakers are terrible and speakers dead in 2 weeks ( anyway i don't need speakers!!! ). First time opening the box the screen is not adjustable. I nee dot use hammer to unlock the connection :) lol
