Asus VG278H review

 

When it debuted a few years ago, the Nvidia 3D Vision Kit required four components to work properly: 3D glasses, an Nvidia graphics card, a compatible display, and a separate, USB-connected 3D emitter.

The Asus VG278H delivers great 3D performance, a superfast refresh rate, and useful ergonomic options.

The monitor is expensive, given what it offers. Also, accessing the connections can be maddening, there is significant backlight bleeding, and the OSD navigation is clunky and obtrusive.

The Asus VG278H has great 3D performance and a fast refresh rate, but is just a bit too expensive for what it offers.

Asus VG278H

 

The 17.5-pound cabinet is supported by a round base and arm assembly that lets you make nearly any adjustment you'll need, whether tilt, swivel, or height. A pair of three-watt speakers provides better-than-average volume, but they are rear-firing and...

Good color, 3D performance. Fast pixel response. Ergonomic stand

Narrow viewing angles. Pricey. No USB ports

The Asus VG278H has everything you need to enjoy realistic 3D gaming right out of the box. It may be a bit pricey and lack USB ports, but this 27-inch gaming monitor offers a lot of bang for your buck in terms of performance and features.

Asus VG278H

 

This monitor does a single thing quite well, but is not flexible enough to satisfy other uses.

For an MSRP of $599, we feel the VG278H is a touch overpriced. While it does its job as a 3D gaming monitor admirably, it does little else with much efficacy. If you're familiar with Asus' computer monitors already, you'll enjoy the design and menu...

ASUS VG278H 27” 3D Gaming Monitor Review

 

While the whole 3D movie “revolution” seems to be waning (again) there is one area where 3D has the potential to provide a better, more immersive

Like it or not, 3D is here to stay until Hollywood says otherwise and in the HDTV realm a least, that means years of image quality

amazing monitor

 

I understand that lightboost was created to make gaming in 3d brighter and thats where it gets its name but its awful to explain to people that using it in 2d games to reduce motion blur will make the screen dimmer. Also the fact that lightboost works...

i play at 120hz with lightboost at 10%, gamma .70 digital vibrance 70%, adaptive vsync with a triple buffer. it creates such a smooth buttery image with no motion blur. It has a vesa mount and the stock stand is easily removable.

it took me months to figure out how to properly set up this monitor. Theres not many games that work perfect in 3d, and even the few that do the 3d gaming still strains my eyes to use for more than a few minutes. So the 3d is like a cool trick but when...

best gaming monitor

 

for me i have lightboost forced to stay on all the time at 10% and then i have my gamma at .70 and my digital vibrance at 70%.

best monitor for gaming ive ever seen. the motion reduction with lightboost at 10% is literally magic. I can move around in game so fast with zero blur. Ive played a few games that were designed with 3d vision in mind like resident evil 6, bioshock,...

the monitor doesnt have an option to force lightboost all the time. you have to download a program to do that. When you boot a game in 3d and then switch it to 2d you wont get as good of frame rates as if you had 3d vision turned off and then start the...
