5 out of 5 eggsBest thing since sliced bread.

Pros: Seeing as i was using a 19" CRT monitor(VGA connection) since pretty much the stone age, going to this product has blown my mind.

Im a avid movie watcher, gamer and photographer and this has blown new life into pretty much everything i do.

Games are a whole new level of awesome.
Movies are sharp and clear.
Photographs are easier to edit and get a more "pure" image.

Quick and easy switch to the preset color profiles(Scenery, Gaming, etc etc).
Screen is clear, bright, crisp and had no dead pixels.
PiP...people still use this?

Overall this product is awesome.

Cons: I gave 5 stars as the quality of the product is superb. If the following mattered to me personally i would of docked an egg.

1) Install directions(I.E. Manual). 3 sentences in english. Although im pretty sure it had every possible written and spoken language that this planet has to offer included on the manual.

2) Tilt. I was afraid to adjust the tilt(forward and backwards) as it was fairly "tight" and didnt want to break the base with the force to change it. There were no clear instructions as to where and how to adjust it.

3)Speakers. While a bonus that these are even included, they are so insignificant its equivalent to calling your friend on 2 cups connected by a string.

4)No inherent screen size adjustment. Took me a good 15 minutes scrolling through every menu option before i realized you cannot change or adjust the screen size(to fill the monitor). Finally figured out i had to go into my ATI interface and adjust the overscan to fill the entire screen with a picture.

5) No height adjustments. I had to lower my chair so low to the ground i ended up just sitting on top of some pillows so i was eye level with the monitor. Perfect if you are a "little person" though.

6) It doesnt come with a mail order bride, a money tree or a spaceship.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Bright colors, easy to configure, decent volume on monitor. It has a all the input you would need for a modern monitor.

Cons: Height is not adjustable, does not go higher than 1900 x 1080. I am fine with this. But I can see other people point about a 27" monitor going higher than 1900 x 1080

Other Thoughts: Great monitor. Contemplating about buying another one of these to replace my old Gateway 24" workhorse that does 1900 x 1200. Hard to find a monitor these days tha that extra 120 height.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to: Yellowish tainting of blue gradients

Pros: Large screen, crisp display, vibrant colors, decent response time, options to reduce ghosting and corona motion effects, decent viewing angle.

Cons: In Scenery Mode, Blue gradients towards the lighter end of the spectrum have a yellowish tainting to it. (Fixed issue!)

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my review below, as Newegg doesn't allow review edits to reflect an updated situation.

Asus tech support has been very helpful and friendly to help me get my discoloration issue troubleshooted, and though they weren't able to find precise technical settings, they did find something that helped me determine the cause. I'll quote below:

–Standard Mode: allows you to view documents and browse websites comfortably with optimized colors and contrast.
–Game mode: adaptively brings up dark, hard-to-see areas while leaving the well-lit areas untouched—allowing you to see your enemies lurking in dark corners without washing out the colors as a whole.
–Theater mode: simulates a theater experience by enhancing the contrast and color saturation of the image—delivering livelier and more vivid visuals for greater immersion.
–Scenery mode: increases the brightness range, introduces more contrast gradations and selectively tweaks the color saturation of key elements such as blue skies and green fields to make for more captivating land and seascapes—keeping your photos as fresh and vivid as when you were actually there.
–Night View mode: breathes the beauty back into night vistas by smartly raising the Y-Luminance signal to highlight poorly-lit details—capturing the scene’s beauty in crisp and vibrant fashion.

I was using Scenery Mode, and I imagine it's this selective tweaking of blues and greens that was causing this to occur. In photos and movies it might be okay, but for digital imaging and anything involving gradients, it was the likeliest source of discoloration for that hue range.

What I am using now is Theater mode with the saturation adjusted hardware-side while calibrating the monitor, and so far so good.

Note, for anyone doing similar calibrations, you need to actually power the monitor off to save your settings. I lost my settings when I rebooted the computer and got confused when I landed back in Scenery Mode.

Between this review and my previous, the score now is around 3.5 eggs. It would be a full 4, but the frustrations of this experience docks it slightly, and not everyone is going to have the patience or expertise to troubleshoot this if they experience a similar issue.

But at least all is good for me now. And again, Asus support does their best to be helpful, so they are to be commended for that.

3 out of 5 eggsYellowish tainting of blue gradients

Pros: Large screen, crisp display, vibrant colors, decent response time, options to reduce ghosting and corona motion effects, decent viewing angle.

With the exceptions noted below, this is a beautiful monitor.

Cons: Blue gradients towards the lighter end of the spectrum have a yellowish tainting to it. (see below)

Other Thoughts: My monitor also has about a 2x2 pixel area about where the start menu is located that appears to be a speck of dust trapped between the lcd and protective screen (it's not dead or stuck pixels, I confirmed it with a jeweler's loupe). Because of its location, it is not a distraction, but if it were located anywhere else I would probably have RMA'd this monitor immediately.

The major disappointment with this monitor is the issue I am having with color accuracy. I use this monitor for gaming, but also for graphics work, so when I discovered an odd yellow "taint" to certain blue gradients, I was very unhappy.

I am able to mitigate this issue by using my video driver software to LOWER saturation levels, and the monitor menu options to RAISE saturation levels until they are balanced and the taint is gone.

Because of this, at first I believed the issue to be on my video card's end. However, I recently plugged in a Raspberry Pi with XBMC installed, and the blue background on it also suffers from this yellowish "taint," leading me to believe it is some issue with the monitor itself somehow.

I would love to know the precise cause of this, and if there is something I can do to eliminate the issue permanently. Until then, whenever I see it happening, I will have to adjust my saturation levels and hope that it doesn't impact my graphics editing too heavily.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsIts a pretty good display

Pros: Its crisp it clean and it bright. So fae no dead pixles or artifact or ghosting. It relatively cheap.

Cons: In standard mode the color is a little washed out, that is because it utilizing the true 2ms response time. Set in theater mode the colors are brilliant but the response time goes to about 5 ms which in reality is insignificant but all the times add up when gaming.

4 out of 5 eggsGet the VE278H instead.

Pros: This is a great monitor, it's nice and big and has great resolution. It's also a very sturdy monitor, which is important because of it's size.

Cons: I bought this monitor initially with my setup, but I wanted another monitor later so I got the VE278H (this is VE278Q). I didn't see any differences and it was cheaper so I got that. Ugh, but I didn't see the contrast ratios. The contrast ratio on this monitor is only 10000000:1, and the VE278H is 50000000:1- this makes a HUGE difference when using a dual monitor setup. The VE278H makes everything look so much sharper than this one just because of contrast. So please, get the VE278H it's cheaper and better. The only difference between the two is price and contrast but that makes a big difference.

Other Thoughts: DON'T GET THE VE278Q, GET THE VE278H. IT'S BETTER AND CHEAPER.
