It’s not just a fascinating display; it’s also about communication. The VK278Q, the first 27" LED monitor integrated with a 2.0M pixel webcam, mixes visual excitement with modern sophistication. Powered by LED backlight technology, it delivers sharp, true-to-life images through speedy 2ms response time and ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio that dynamically adjusts the display’s contrast ratio according to the image content, up to an astonishing 10,000,000:1. Full HD 1080P native resolution and HDMI & DisplayPort inputs bring you into a spectacular world of colors, no matter what you are watching - thanks to Asus exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology.

AI Light function enables the VK278Q to automatically adjust to lower brightness and make your eyes feel more comfortable in the dim environment. Furthermore, it helps save more 25% power consumption. For versatile use, the VK278Q is also embedded with rich I/O ports such as DVI, D-Sub and 3.5mm audio & earphone jacks. Picture in Picture function displays 2 different signals simultaneously via a simple push of the PIP hotkey. Built with green in mind, the Asus VK278Q still brings you stunning visual experience in a contemporary package.

 

  • newegg LED Backlight Technology Featuring the LED backlight technology, the Asus VK278Q provides increased brightness, enhanced color saturation with less power consumption, minimizes eye fatigue and is more eco-friendly to the environment containing no halogen, mercury or lead, compared with a typical CCFL backlight.
  • newegg ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology The Asus exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology employs a color engine to automatically optimize image quality with intelligent color, brightness, contrast and sharpness corrections for the best results in image preview, movie playback and gaming. 6 Splendid video preset modes (Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB and Standard) via hotkey as well as 3 skin tone presets are available for optimal visual experience.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Monitor

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

Cons: 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 taking off any eggs.

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

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost 3 years old still going strong!

Pros: Got these monitors 12/17/2010 for a Eyefinity setup and they are still every bit as good as the day I got them. I have had zero dead pixels. And I now have 3 of these monitors on all three of my rigs so that is 9 monitors in total with zero dead pixels. Not sure what else I can say other than the picture quality is great.

Cons: No Cons I can think of. The few that some have said I knew about before purchase so I can't see them as a con. That being the Webcam and no Microphone. Just reading the spec's before purchase would have clued one into that.

Other Thoughts: Overall I have been very happy with these monitors and after almost 3 years they work every bit as good as they did the day I got them. Would defiantly buy Asus again with no hesitation.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate on Warranty Repair

Pros: This is an update of a previous review. HDMI display port went out on my a few weeks ago after less than a year of ownership. Asus website "live" chat person issued RMA in first session with them. Mailing back and forth was simple via FedEx. Problem was fixed by replacing bad part. Their packing back to me was better than what I sent it to them in.

Cons: Shipping took almost a week in travel each way, and a week at repair center. FedEx tried to deliver while I was away from home, and it was a little convoluted figuring out where they were holding my monitor, but that was straightened out after a couple of days. Fortunately I had my (smaller) old monitor as a backup.

Other Thoughts: Definitely like the monitor performance. Disappointed about the hardware failure, but Asus service did the repair to my satisfaction.

3 out of 5 eggsHDMI Input Kaput

Pros: Looks and runs great. I use it for gaming, not color-specific applications. Response time is terrific.

Cons: HDMI input just quit working after nearly a year. Didn't move my setup or jiggle any wires. ASUS customer support issued RMA on first phone call (took about 30 minutes overall to hold for chat response and fill out their form). I will update when I get the monitor back.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks and works great

Pros: Great gaming monitor. Bright, clear, crisp. Edges are clean.

Cons: Wish it had a higher resolution other than 1080p

Other Thoughts: This overall is a great monitor. I purchased it mainly for gaming which it does well and not for the webcam. I needed a monitor with a DVI connection and similar asus monitors in price didn't have the DVI connection for some reason. Either way it's a great monitor for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsSplendid Monitor

Pros: Ive been using this monitor for over a year and i must admit it is excellent. The picture quality is outstanding. Great for gaming or even just watching a movie. Plenty of surface area to see everything on the monitor.

Cons: even though there placed just fine i find it hard to get to the inputs. Wish it came with a remote, built in speakers are weak. no built in microphone so if your planning on video chatting you're gonna have to buy a mic

Other Thoughts: camera is decent but gets the job done.
