1 out of 5 eggsI would never think ASUS would do this to one of it's loyal customers.

Pros: - Great Price
- Great Size
- Nice colors
- Work for what I needed (till 5 days later)

Cons: I am a Engineering Major, so when I ordered this monitor on 11/11/2014 I assumed that it would work great for my finals, because it's all online (keep in mind my old monitor stop working). Which it did workout great till 5 days later; the screen went green on one of my finals!

I assumed I could get a return/refund thru newegg mainly for the reason it left a bad taste in my mouth, but hear what happened. ASUS told me when I call them I had to go thru Newegg 30 day policy. Which made perfect sense to me, so I did. Fail to realize that the box cut out for the code was needed for a return, but I had shipped the code out on the rebate. As soon as Newegg saw I didn't have the code like a normal person would have shipped it off for the rebate asap, they sent me back a broken monitor with no refund! I try calling ASUS from their rebate department, but after calling 3 times to figure out if they can send me back the cut out of the serial number.. the line doesn't work.

Has ASUS helped me with my issue yet with their product under the first month of a 3 year warranty? No. Has Newegg did anything to help me? No. And I'm truly disappointed that I have done nothing but buy buy buy from Newegg and ASUS, but when it's time for a return for a 5 days DOA. I get my broken monitor back with no refund in a legit amount of time to actually return it under warranty. I swear ASUS I can't believe your customer service is how it is in the rebate department and if I have to spend more than a week to deal with just figuring out what I can do. I will not buy anything ASUS ever ever ever again.

Other Thoughts: If they help me the way they should've from the start, I will rewrite the review, but as of right now.. it's the truth.

1 out of 5 eggsDead Pixel in less than 2 weeks.

Pros: It was a nice looking well preforming monitor for 9 days. It has a lot of cool options for display and an ambient light sensor.

Cons: Nine days in and I am staring a dead pixel dead center in the screen. This is a huge schock for me coming from 2 samsungs that I had for 7 years and they never got one dead pixel.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Max,

Thank you for your purchase of the ASUS VE278Q LCD monitor. I do apologize about for inconveniences regarding the dead pixel. If there are three or more dead pixels, it would qualify for a RMA utilizing your ASUS manufacture warranty. Since it is a new purchase, I would advise you contact Newegg to see if they would be able to swap the monitor for you under their return policy. If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N141247841.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

Best regards,
Jolene

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: I am enjoying this monitor, I have a MacBook Pro, PS4 and an Old IBM Think pad hooked up to it. When I am on my MacBook Pro, I can use the screens PIP feature to work with my Old Thinkpad at the same time. PIP only works for VGA and Display Port only. It is worth the price compared to other monitors. The speakers are ok for light use, make sure your sound isn't bass heavy otherwise the sound will come out weird. The HDMI does transfer the sound through to the monitor. The resolution is alright, it is as good as my MacBook Pro (Late 2011). So far no complaints. Great monitor for gaming. Played WOW on it and it looked spectacular

Cons: The speakers, its alright for light use only.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor at a great price!!!

Pros: Very bright, Nice and big, Good colors, 1080p, 27 inches changes alot if you do multiple things, speakers are ok for use if you have no additional speakers, good for just normally playing on console

Cons: Speakers are somewhat ok but lack good bass and overdo some things when listening to music, 60hz is not good for when you play fps games on pc and have a good graphics card, gloss finish gets dirty and looks pretty bad, wish it was a matte finish, good price for what you are getting

Other Thoughts: Ive really enjoyed my time with this monitor and will continue to use it as long as it lasts. I would say to spend the extra $50 on the 24 inch 144hz monitor if you first of all are primary pc and dont care for the extra 3 inches of space. And if you are looking for a 2nd monitor for just using it for media and your primary monitor for gaming i would reccomend this. Im going to be upgrading to the benq xl2720z 144gz monitor. Other then that i really like this monitor and would reccomend to anybody looking for a 27 inch monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsScrew in the cable! Get NVIDA software

Pros: Large, bright, vivid color, love it, third purchase of this particular monitor because I like it so much.

Cons: For the first month, every time I did a computer restart, the monitor would turn off and had to be manually turned back on. One day I was messing with cables and the monitor stopped working altogether. I found that the cable connector hadn't been tightened. Be sure to do that, as it fixed the issue perfectly. Dah ... The only negative thing I have to say is that I can't find a monitor driver. Windows uses the generic PnP driver, and I can't find a specific driver for this monitor, and none was shipped. I assume the PnP driver from Microsoft is good enough. Also, you need the NVIDIA software package, at least for multiple monitors. Don't know about a single monitor. The NVIDIA package is an easy download and install. Google it.

Other Thoughts: This review of monitor 2 of three identical monitors.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks Okay, but....

Pros: The colors are decent, the size is nice.

Cons: Within 5 days a persistent row of dead green pixels has appeared, and will not go away. This now means I have to go to the trouble of returning this and take a lot of time out of my day to do so...meanwhile my cellphone is incapable of phone calls, so the RMA process is the last thing I need in my life right now. It's definitely not worth this price for the lack of quality, especially from ASUS. I expected better.

Other Thoughts: It might be a decent monitor, but the problem I have seems to be prevalent. If you're lucky and yours works, you might need to worry...because you could have your dead pixels come so late the return policy will be void...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear David,

Please feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference number N141111007. I would be more than happy to help assist you with a RMA utilizing your manufactures warranty. I do apologize that your newly purcahsed monitor has developed dead pixels.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor, Full HD, built-in Speakers is a plus

Pros: Awesome resolution, Full HD, 2MS, 27" of awesome, clean design and easy to set up

Cons: The speaker goes bonkers sometime when it's connected to a PS3 when playing certain games. Makes similar sounds when your character dies in Contra, but on repeat.

Not enough for me to take out an egg only because it's still a 27" Full HD LED monitor, which is the main reason why I bought it for, not for it's inability to produce clean sound.

That's what my computer speakers are for.

Other Thoughts: Regarding the sound going haywire when it's connected to a PS3 when playing certain games, it's a bit of a disappointment because it's one feature that doesn't work well and when it's offered on an item you bought, you do wish it worked well. That's not enough for me to be disappointed overall with the monitor because I bought it for the monitor, the resolution, size, the Full HD, and the 2MS feature. All those work really well and I'm quite happy with this monitor. I would highly recommend it! Goes well with my LG 27" LED monitor for a dual monitor set up.

2 out of 5 eggs1 dead pixel is too many

Pros: Beautiful, big and bright with plenty of display options.

Cons: Arrived with a dead pixel (red is black). IMO one dead pixel is too many but unfortunately Newegg and ASUS don't see it that way. This monitor would merit a higher rating if it weren't for that.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ArchbaldCortez,

I do apologize that your ASUS VE278Q RT LCD monitor has developed a dead pixel. Unfortunately for this model series, in order to get a RMA for dead pixels there needs to be 3 or more visible. I do apologize for any inconveniences this has caused for you. If you would ever like to discuss this further feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com. Please be sure to also include this case number N141111061 in the subject line of the email as well.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!
