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...

Haven't found any yet

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

Great IPS monitor


really great monitor for a great price, Asus has some nice quality products and this one doesn't disappoint

It takes a while to get use to touch controls but not so bad

Consumer review by:

Meh.........Not for me


Look elsewhere for a wall mountable or arm mount monitor as stand is cheap so people like me that use nice mounts need the mounting holes to do so. Meh.....

Nice monitor and size with detail. Low pwoer usage

NO mount holes on the back??? What the heck is Asus thinking?? Lost a sale due to this

Very, Very Nice


OK! Enough bashing of the buttons. This is a very nice monitor. Price to value ratio is off the charts. If you are looking at a 27" monitor thinking it won't be any great shakes over the 24" you are sitting in front of, think again. I'm 64 years old...

The packaging was sufficient to protect the product during shipment. It was very easy to put together. the sheer size will take some getting used to. The picture quality is spectacular. I'm still working on getting everything dialed in. No dead pixels...

The instructions on assembly (not that an experienced builder would need them) are a joke. There is no included software and the stuff you can download is a joke. The fact that a HDMI cable is not included is a joke. Make sure you order one when you...
