Review: Asus VK278Q

 

A 27in monster which ticks almost all the boxes.

Asus VK278Q

 

For a 27in monitor, this ticks almost all the boxes, and it has a couple of unique features, but the price is too high.

With good image quality and a three year warranty, the Asus VK278Q might look like a great deal, but LCD can’t compare on image quality to the likes of the similarly priced Dell U2711 27in IPS monitor.

1 Week and a fantastic monitor so far.

 

Highly recommend this product.

Well packaged product, great image, solid build quality. No dead pixels that I have noticed so far. I use it with my 2011 Macbook Pro Hi-Def (additional graphics in the laptop and hi-res screen) laptop and my Windows 10 Family Desktop. I did not buy...

So far nothing. Documentation is a little goofy, but I'm in IT so that is not a big deal.

The best 27" monitor on the market

 

Durable and reliable (4+ years, not a single problem). Elegant. Excellent picture quality for professional graphic designers or photographers. DisplayPort is a bonus for latest ultrabook w/ mini displayport or Macbook w/ thunderbolt interface. No need...

Amazing Monitor

 

Would be nice if it came with and HDMI cord given the price of the monitor.

Large screen, great webcam. Lots of protective padding and plastic covering the monitor in the box protecting it

Set up took a bit because there was so much plastic under the webcam protecting it. Thought I was going to break it trying to turn the webcam. The directions for the monitor could be clearer, few English directions. Overall still great monitor not...
