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

Get the VE278H instead.

 

DON'T GET THE VE278Q, GET THE VE278H. IT'S BETTER AND CHEAPER.

This is a great monitor, it's nice and big and has great resolution. It's also a very sturdy monitor, which is important because of it's size

I bought this monitor initially with my setup, but I wanted another monitor later so I got the VE278H (this is VE278Q). I didn't see any differences and it was cheaper so I got that. Ugh, but I didn't see the contrast ratios. The contrast ratio on this...

Great No Frills PSU

 

Bought this for my Fiancee's gaming computer, she only dislikes the matte finish of typical monitors. This is definitely matte finish if you're curious.

Base doesn't jiggle about unless you shake the desk very hard. Monitor Controls are oriented differently than I'm used to but once you read the manual and figure out what they do, it's cake. Resolution and refresh rates are as good as I expected...

Speakers. Now, I never expect built in speakers (from monitors or TVs) to be very good, these are especially mono-sounding. I guess I can't complain as nobody ever relies on them. But I hope that someday a display comes along that actually makes...

Awesome monitor for the price

 

I am not sure what to do with the power cord issue. I am thinking about gluing this cord or an adapter for it into the socket but I might invalidate my warranty. If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

Monitor is beautiful with nice stand and great picture. It is fast enough to play any game without noticeable lag. It came without a single dead pixel. It has an array of pre-set modes to adjust lighting without having to having to resort to...

As many other reviewers have said, there is a design problem with the power cord. We use this monitor for gaming but we also turn it a bit towards our living room to watch movies. Every time we touch it, it loses power because the power cord does not...

Asus VE278Q 27"

 

After I assembled I noticed the tilt on the base. You could not unlock the swivel tilt making the monitor tilt forward. ( See the picture) Stuck. On a closer examine it appears the locking nuts and springs are to tight. This is very frustrating after...

The Monitor works. It turns on and is quit nice and clear

Swivel, base, locking, defective

My favorite monitor!

 

I have 5 of these monitors. It is my main monitor at home and I have two at work. I am happy with them every day. No dead pixel issues. Bought another one when they went on sale to have a spare! I use this with the Ergotron monitor arm. Good combination!

Good color ; Good viewing agle ; Good color similarity between monitors ; Vesa mount works well ; Very useful array of inputs (especially the displayport) ; Enough control buttons ; Big enough pixels for older eyes

Displayport needs a correct cables. Most of the offbrand cables have issues with sleep mode, it seems. Accell cables work as expected

Completely Satisfied

 

I have been very pleased with the monitor and don't think you would be unhappy if you are in the market for a general purpose monitor. I read some reviews that indicate some issues with fast action games due to the 60Hz screen refresh rate, but I have...

This monitor has more video inputs then any comparable monitor. Plus it has the capability to do a picture in picture mode using one of the inputs in the new window ; The monitor that I received has no dead pixels and the colors are bright and vibrant....

The stand is more than adequate to support the monitor, but because of the monitor's width you may experience some slight side to side shaking if you bump your computer desk
