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.

Amazing Value


Received this next day from newegg.

Right out of the box I have zero issues with this monitor. Coming from a 24" 60hz ASUS monitor, the increase in performance is amazing

A bit expensive, but the monitor is without a doubt worth it

I want to buy it, but I'm afraid to pay all that cash for it because I read a lot of reviews of black light bleed and dead pixel. If I get it and notice these issue, I'm going to be very tight!!

IDK yet

For this price there should be ZERO blacklight bleed and definitely no dead/stuck pixels. Not worth my time and money to get replacements so I hope you fare better than I on your purchase.

Very smooth Very fast

I bought 2 of these and one came with some horrid Blacklight Bleeding. and the other came with stuck/dead pixels

Originally purchased an open box item. Newegg sent me the wrong monitor and sold the one I was trying to buy to someone else (it happens). At first I got nowhere and was going to have to settle for my money back. Then I got to Vic at customer service....

Very nice monitor ; Leaps and bounds better than 60hz monitors ; Very fast refresh rate, excellent for gaming ; Have to get used to the size (upgraded from a 24")

Incredible monitor!!!


This monitor is everything I hoped it would be and more. It is absolutely worth the price considering the plethora of great features it has. I would not choose any other monitor than this one for gaming\3D movies unless you want a giant 50" plasma

I don't have 3 of them

Could be Good


i have to press the buttons a couple times to switch modes

Very smooth picture, screen size is perfect

after a month of use the monitor buttons stop working, so i cant change between 3D, or switch between VGA and HDMI

VG278HE - Finally like it!


I purchased all new components for a system build, all from Newegg, for a new build I did two weeks ago today. The other items I have already reviewed, and held out on this monitor to give it a fair chance. Had I reviewed it the day I received, or day...

144 Hz refresh rate - great for gaming ; Nice stand easily adjustable ; Lot of settings one can tweak in the OSD ; 27" screen is perfect for my setup, easier to read websites and text

Mine had horrible stock display settings as it came in to me. Took about 3 days of reading up on the internet, tweaking settings, to get it to look really good for me

Nice Monitor


I would recommend this monitor if I new it would come with a perfect screen. Is there any QA done?

Size, Color is good, and the adjustments of height and swivel are nice

The only cons I have right now is the fact that I have 2 stuck pixels in places that cause great annoyance. I've ran a stuck pixel fixer without any success

This is the 3rd one Newegg has sent me for various reasons all quality related I would have sent this one back as well because I can see thath either side has about 3 inches thick and the screen tall size are that is not that same darkness as the rest

144Hz,27" and low price

Very noticeable light bleed in games when they get dark
