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

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

Wrong pictures?

 

All of the text refers to the VG278HE but all of the pictures are of the VG278H. Note the bump on the top of the monitor, this is the IR emitter that controls the 3D glasses.

I own 3 of the VG478H monitors shown and they are great. 2+ years and still working perfectly with no dead pixels

Can't tell which monitor I will get, the VG478HE described or the VG478H shown

Looks good at first, then it's downhill from there.

 

I've been buying Asus products since the 90s. Having mainly used their motherboards, I've not had many issues with any of their products which is why I keep coming back. The ASUS VG278HE monitor however appears to be a lemon. If you type asus OSD...

Large Screen ; Height Adjustable ; 144/120hz

Not Pivot Adjustable like the VG248QE, or competing Benq monitors ; 2ms response time is alright, but 1ms would be better ; Monitor is prone to having the menu buttons break, and become unusable. Mine was acting up the first day I got it, and has now...

144 Hz Feels Like I'm Cheating

 

I have been accused of cheating ever since I got used on playing Battlefield 4 on this monitor. It's got an advantage on people that are using 60 hz monitor.You will just see the difference when you play the game!

As the title implies, this monitor will make you feel like you're cheating on online FPS games like Battlefield. These monitors are very amaznig if you have the hardware to drive them

Just what everybody knows already. TN panels have horrid viewing angles. Color reproduction can be greater. But it doesn't bother me that much. I knew what I was getting into when I decided to buy this monitor

The 144hz saviors have arrived.

 

Didnt have a single dead pixel, this monitor is amazing. best purchase ive mad for my PC to pair up with my GTX970!

You have two choices in life.. 144hz or 1440p. If you are bill gates you can have both with the ROG model.. playing CSGO and BF4 on 144hz is life changing

Major Uppgraydd

 

I know this isn't top-of-the-line anymore, but until 4k and 1440p comes more frequent/cheaper then I'll stick with this. Haven't tested the 3D yet but I plan on getting it someday.

So before I bought this I was using a 720p 32'' T.V. This more than blows it away. I cant believe I haven't been getting the most out of my high end computer over $1500 built gaming rig. I know this monitor is a few years old when it came out, but for...

No dead/stuck pixels, I guess they've finally fixed that issue ; there is a small un-noticeable light bleed from the top left corner. But after reading up on it, it seems normal for a LCD to have some light bleed, I can only hope that it doesn't...
