Asus VG278HE

 

When we reviewed the Asus VG278H earlier this year we awarded it an Editors' Choice for its overall performance and the fact that it was one of the first 120Hz monitors to support Nvidia's 3D Vision 2 with LightBoost technology. However, we weren't...

Solid color performance. Great motion handling. Ergonomic stand

Narrow viewing angles. No USB ports. Weak grayscale performance

The Asus VG278HE is a versatile 27-inch monitor featuring a 144Hz refresh rate and a speedy pixel response. It?s a bit pricey and loses some pop when viewed from an angle but it handles gaming and video with aplomb.

Asus VG278HE review

 

Asus's VG278HE could lay claim to being the ultimate gaming monitor. It's a 27in 1080p LCD with Nvidia 3D Vision support and a huge 144Hz refresh rate for super-smooth visuals.

It's expensive, but this monitor's high refresh rate and great contrast make it perfect for gaming

WORTH CONSIDERING

ASUS VG278HE 27” 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

 

Today we are looking at the latest 27 inch monitor from ASUS, the VG278HE – which sports a 1080p resolution, nVidia 3D Vision support and a whopping 144hz refresh rate for super smooth 3D gaming. This is an expensive screen, but can it deliver the goods?

144hz refresh rate ; fantastic for 3D gaming ; Good stand design ; need to spend extra for the 3D kit

expensive ; White purity is poor ; keep a cloth handy, glossy finish attracts fingerprints ; uniformity could be much better ; 120hz and 144hz difference is negligible in the real world

Kitguru says: A great looking screen which excels with 3D gaming, but little else.

ASUS VG278HE 27” 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

 

With its buttery smooth, ultra fast response rate ASUS' original VG278H was built from the ground up to provide the best 3D gaming experience possible.

More reasonable price ; 144Hz refresh rate ; 3D options still available via optional upgrade kit ; Good sturdy stand ; Good default color profile

1080p resolution ; Not precisely a uniform panel ; Not really a general purpose display ; Few will notice the difference between 120Hz and 144Hz refresh rate

With its reasonable price, impressive response rate and easy to drive resolution there certainly is a lot to like about the new ASUS

Excellent gaming monitor

 

I mainly play BF4, and the increased refresh rate has a noticeable impact on my game. The performance using the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 is very smooth for the most part ; I thoroughly recommend this for any enthusiast looking into buy high end hardware ;...

Viewing angle is not that great, but that doesn't bother me

ASUS VG278HE

 

awesome for Fps's with fast motion.

wonderful monitor.. 144hz really shows its smoothness and accuracy in fps's over my old 60hz

don't expect to rely on the internal speakers. I cant even hear voices clearly at the highest audio output setting.. volume sound is very low and muffled. Buy speakers or headset

Fast Monitor

 

Fast, look great for gaming. No dead pixels. 144 hz refresh rate. I had a 60hz monitor before will never go back to that again

None

3D Awesome Sauce

 

I love it I love it it works great and I love it. OK, note, 3D Vision does have shader issues for almost every game, so you WILL have to download the HeliX mods to fix the shadows, because that will ruin your Skyrim business for sure. Trust me though,...

3D gaming...which is really super groovy. Amazing actually. Adjustable stand, which is also mighty nice

Make sure you aren't facing a window with direct sunlight, some ghosting, not awful if you download HeliX mods...speakers are pretty cheesy, but we all knew that coming in, right? Buy some real speakers

Great monitor

 

Fast refresh rate, quick response time, nice size ; Easy to adjust height and tilt ; Easy to connect and setup with my GTX 780ti

none that is I see

Consumer review by:

buttons on bottom stopped working

 

I really like the monitor just afraid that with it not working and not being able to get support online I am worried of how long it will survive and at this price point is not at all what I was expecting from asus

screen looks great and handles all games very well

the unit seems to produce alot of heat and the buttons on bottom of unit that control everything from on/off to all adjustments just stopped working so now I can never turn monitor off as I will not be able to turn back on. Spent well over 45 minutes...
