Great display little touchy to setup

 

this is a big display that fits nicely on a desk without to much interference

Great color, great price nice size, ASUS quality, great look with the slim bezel, blue filter real eases eye strain

setup is a little tricky the menu system is a little convoluted. however once you get the hang of the menus things will go smoothly. this con is only minor in scope and should not stop anyone from buying this display.

worthwhile purchase

 

would definitely purchase another. Asus gives good value for the money. Menu adjustments aren't super easy, nor are they super difficult. Just a little patience needed.

I bought an open box unit and have no regrets except that on memorial day this monitor went on sale for ten dollars less, but that's ok. Newegg Express dropped this at my door on Memorial Day which was a pleasant surprise and I opened it and received...

The stand is a bit flimsy. If you have a lot of traffic by your desk this might be annoying. VividPixel makes lettering look bad. I set this to 0%.

Great monitor, but be careful while moving it.

 

Thin body, clear picture, bright.

The screens is very fragile. My monitor developed a large crack while picking it up and moving it by the frame and is now unusable.

Customer Service Sucks. RMA Process Sucks

 

none

Both monitors i purchased have dead pixels. I have been trying to get replacements for over 2 months and been given the run around by customer services. Never buying Asus again.

Texts are blurry

 

I've tried 3 of the Asus 27" frameless line (VC279H, VX279, and VP279) and they all had the same text clarity issue. I'll stick with the older thick bezel models if it means I can read text on screen. Currently using AOC I2757FH and it's working fine.

Good color and viewing angles

Like others have reported, texts just aren't clear. Tried disabling Vivid pixel, but that did't help. Have Asus VE278 and that monitor has no such issues

I got them cheap.

 

If you are looking fo a nice big screen and don't care about the 1080 resolution they are very nice.

I got them on sale for $169 ea, as an upgrade for my dual 24's. Nice bright screens, took a little fiddling to get them setup but overall an excellent deal.

The "thin bezel" is a bit of a lie, yes the bezel is very thin but the display itself stops about 1/2" away from the bezel, so it's really no 'thinner' then any other screen. The speakers are horrid, don't factor them into your decision, just know that...

Was awesome until weak power button broke

 

I would recommend this if the buttons were a little more substantial. Kind of shoddy for an Asus product. :(

Picture is awesome. The monitor looks great. Really nice for Battlefield 4 and watching movies.

The worst part is that after 7 months of light use (I let the monitor sleep instead of powering it off) the button disappeared inside the monitor case. I cannot turn the monitor on now.

Good monitor for the price - Has a backlight bleed

 

- Have had no issues with text clarity some are reporting. I had Windows with Cleartype enabled and calibrated for my previous 1080p 25" Hannspree, however. Calibrating Cleartype again made it only slightly better from that mark. - Can't really mark...

-Attractive minimalist slim design. Screen is nearly flush with the frame, except for on the bottom. Very slight lip elsewhere. -Sturdy base/stand. -Buttons and OSD are decent. -Small, simple unobtrusive LED light for power/standby. -Great display when...

-Bottom left corner has definite backlight bleed. It's mostly only noticeable when on and displaying something pitch black, or close to black. Barely noticeable otherwise. -Blacks seem much brighter than other panel types/monitors. -Does not tilt down...

Excellent Monitor, YOU WILL NOT GET REBATES.

 

I have over 10 asus monitors in my household, never had any problems at all. But Asus is lying about rebates, they claim rebates are send , but there is no way to track rebate card. They will reply to contact them for re issue and that is it, It is...

Fantastic color reproduction, Dvi port. I was little concerned for gaming due to 5ms response rate. But I was wrong, no tearing no dead pixels. no eye strain, Vesa Mount.

It is little tricky for 3 monitor setup, but it is not impossible. No Cons at all.
