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.

Best regards,
Jolene

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!

Best regards,
Jolene

4 out of 5 eggsGreat screen, lousy speakers

Pros: Purchased 2 of these. Both were perfect out of the box, no bad pixels. Nice and bright, and much cooler than my old monitors. Purchased for gaming, well worth it.

Cons: Speakers should be thrown out. All I can say is that they work, but they sound like they are inside a box, which in actuality they are; they are in the back.

Other Thoughts: You will need external speakers. Asus should have saved themselves a couple of bucks by not putting in the speakers to begin with

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: -27"
-Good colors when screen is set correctly for gaming, in custom settings of screens settings+color settings in Graphics card Drivers
-I can plug my xbox or ps3 to the screen and the screen transmits the sound via hdmi
-low power usage
-low response time which is a nice thing for gamers at this price point

Cons: not necessarily cons
-speakers are built in speakers dont get your hopes up or have high standards they are imo a pro from a console gaming standpoint especially if you use headphones which negates the need for the speakers
-needs some occasional tuning from game to game color/brightness wise in regards to saturation/gamma between rts games(fog of war) scenic games like skyrim or bioshock, and fps games like cs:go but all of these games can be optimized with tuning combinations and learning this screen over the years of ownership for me 3+ its a balance of in game brightness/gamma, gpu driver settings for color sat/ gamma/, and screen settings for color/gamma/brightness and "sharpness"

Other Thoughts: I got mine in 2011 as a shell shocker for 200$ so its price has bounced up and down from its 329$ original price point. and its nice to see that every now and again it drops to 200$ when its on sale.

If your're on a "tight budget" and are considering a higher quality "smaller screen" with a 1ms response or 120hertz for a more competitive gaming experience they can get quite pricy and the watered down ones are horrific pic quality wise.

This screen for 200$ gets you a 27" perfect for gaming movies/netflix, as well as gaming. Still would recommend an IPS if your going the design route. But for entertainment purposes this is a very price conscious product and its value is well retained

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor for the price!

Pros: Vivid and bright color, Large Screen. A lot of monitor for the price.

I had originally considered an ultra-wide but decided to give this a try before dumping $1K into a single monitor. Glad I did! This monitor is large and helps if you have a difficult time seeing (monitor far away on the desk?) I would not hesitate purchasing another if needed.

Cons: None comes to mind.
