Decent Monitor - Build Quality Questionable


Decent display. Beautiful design

I've owned this monitor for about a year and a half. The bottom bezel started separating from the screen a couple of months ago. At this point there's about a 2mm gap between the screen and the bottom bezel. Disappointing

A very nice overall monitor


Some of the people here complaining have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. If you know you're buying a 1080p monitor at 27", obviously it can't be compared to a 27" 1440p or 4K. You can't just stretch pixels out and expect the same...

Huge display with thin bezels. Bezel is around half an inch it seems. IPS display with nice angles. Little to none back light bleeding thank goodness. No noticeable lag in gaming thus far. Paired with a GTX 970 and has performed admirably. Paid under...

Buttons are insane. Who came up with super sensitive touch buttons with no feedback. Takes forever to do something simple because you are always accidentally pressing the wrong thing

Nice Entry Level IPS Display


I use two of these. Do some photo editing, pro tools, etc. Great displays for the price. I bought one a few years ago and just bought another because I liked to so much.

Big, bright, aesthetically pleasing

As other mentioned, the buttons are a bit of a pain, but I rarely have need to use them, so it's no big deal. Text isn't quite as smooth as it could be. I guess I can try to calibrate better. Maybe at 27" 1080 isn't enough resolution. Still looks very...

Happy with the buy overall


Looks great! Very slim bezel and nice looking stand ; Screen size is excellent. Not too large either ; Easy to adjust color settings ; No dead pixels ; Small external power square

Buttons can be kinda weird to work with, but it isn't worth docking an egg for it ; As others have mentioned, pixels are somewhat visible at 1080p on a 27". I still love the monitor though, but if this is an important con for you, then go with 1440px...

Looks good on the outside, but...


Coming from an old Dell Ultrasharp 24" monitor, I was expecting better resolution, smoother lines, and somewhat crisp text. As soon as the "Asus" splash screen appeared, I noticed the pixellation. I really think we are all becoming spoiled by the high...

Sleek, very thin bezel, looked very good on my desk

1920x1080 is very pixellated at 27". This monitor might look good, have a fast response time, nice color, etc., but that means nothing to me if I can actually see the pixels in diagonal lines. I RMAed it

Beautiful design. Very sleek and elegant. Sundial stand is a nice touch. Colours are nice and the panel is very responsive for an IPS

Slightly low due to the sundial stand not having any height adjustment capability. Menu touch buttons take a bit getting used to, but contrary to other comments, the menu is very straight forward. (The up/down and left/right icons are displayed right...

No VESA Mounting Holes


If you are looking for a monitor without VESA support, I suppose this is probably more of a 4 or 5 star product. However the only feature that REALLY mattered to me was missing, so for me it is a 1 star product.

Lots of features ; Sleek aesthetic design

This monitor is one of the few that does not have VESA mounting holes on the back. This information is nowhere to be found in the specifications, and there are no pictures above of the back of the monitor ; I suppose as a feature, the argument could be...

Nice when it worked


seriously ive never been so disappointed with a Asus product...

Nice design (frame less) ; Small footprint ; Speakers are good for what they are

I have had this monitor since the beginning of December (almost 3 months) and now its starting fail. The monitor constantly restarts, it has restarted 10 times as i am writing the review... contacted Asus and they gave me the generic response ( check...

Awesome Monitor


I was on the fence about getting an Asus or Samsung. Glad I went with this monitor. Asus is a great brand! I can't wait to get a couple more of these. Hopefully this monitor outlasts my Samsung. 27' is HUGE! Very happy!

Beautiful picture, very aesthetic looking. Slim bezel (slimmer than my old Samsung P2250 at least) ; No dead pixels. Nice and slim ; Couldn't be happier

Not really a con but yes the buttons are very sensitive. It takes a couple minutes to figure out how lightly you need to touch. Not a big deal though
