5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Out of all the monitors I have had, this is the best 144hz 2ms monitor. It smokes my BenQ, which I paid more for.
It seems to be faster than the BenQ as well.
good price ,great product

Cons: No cons as of yet, I will keep you updated

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: I have this monitor setup in my home office and use it for work and gaming. I have my PC connected to it as well as my PS4 and I love it for both. I previously had 4 23" monitors and wanted to downsize to 2 monitors but wanted to also increase the size of my main monitor and this fit my needs perfectly. I wasn't ready to spend the money on a 4k monitor but wanted a larger size screen with 144 and got this on sale for a decent price.
-Very Bright
-Great Colors
-Perfect size for what I was looking for.

Cons: Only Con is that if fits my needs so good I now want a second to match.

2 out of 5 eggsMenu Buttons stopped working

Pros: This was a great monitor for the first few years I had it.

Cons: After 2 years of owning this monitor the menu buttons stopped responding. I have to unplug the monitor to shut it off. Also the brightness / color is off and I have no way to adjust it properly.I did try to adjust it in my Nividia control panel but I can't get it to look right.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGreat display

Pros: 144hz, well built, have had zero display issues in almost a year.

I could not find a better display for the price at this size at that time, and I still could not be happier. I only use it for gaming, so I have zero issues with the TN viewing angle. I much rather prefer the SPEED (which is awesome).

Cons: Don't even try to use the internal speakers. Turn them off. I couldn't imaging many gamers wishing to use internal display speakers anyway, and would almost certainly either be using external speakers or headphones, but they are barely usable. They should have just left them out and brought the price down $10. Mine has a slight whine when they are on as well. I turned them off in the display settings 10 months ago and it's been stellar since.

Other Thoughts: Great display. I would buy again today hands down.

5 out of 5 eggsIrrelevant

Pros: Awesome monitors. Look incredible. Paired with a decent video card these are awesome.

Cons: Unfortunately they are irrelevant. With no display port inputs on these monitors they are useless with the new video cards. The new VC's only have display port inputs. If you dont already know display port or dvi are the only cables you can use if you want to achieve 144hz.

Other Thoughts: Great monitors while they lasted.

Try this Asus monitor... This monitor isnt without some issues but it looks incredible.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks good at first, then it's downhill from there.

Pros: Large Screen.
Height Adjustable.
144/120hz.

Cons: Not Pivot Adjustable like the VG248QE, or competing Benq monitors.
2ms response time is alright, but 1ms would be better.

Monitor is prone to having the menu buttons break, and become unusable. Mine was acting up the first day I got it, and has now become next to useless.

It has trouble detecting input from windows, and will only sometimes actually work. Screen will go blank for long periods.

Colors seem to be washed out, and blurry compared to the VG248QE.

Other Thoughts: I've been buying Asus products since the 90s. Having mainly used their motherboards, I've not had many issues with any of their products which is why I keep coming back.

The ASUS VG278HE monitor however appears to be a lemon. If you type asus OSD broken, or not working, you will see many threads about this common issue.

If I could, I would return this thing, and pick up 2 VG248QE instead. I'll probably contact Asus directly, but from what I've seen, it's going to cost me a fortune to send it back to them, and I'm going to get back the same terrible monitor I don't want.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Netstorm,

Thank you for your valuable review on this ASUS LCD display. I am sorry to read that you are not completely satisfied with this monitor.This monitor does have some great features however. Such as the 2ms that you mentioned along with the 144htz refrash rate. You can adjust the height and tilit the monitor at an angel. And it has 3D capabilities if you have a compatible NVIDA graphics card. If you are experiencing color issues, please try to calibrate your graphics cards settings. For the Blurry text issue, Please go to your settings and check the screen resolution, set it to the maximum native resolution. If that does not work adjust the image manually on your OSD. (you can refer to your user manual). Or you may try going to your Control Panel-> Display Select Adjust clear Type text (and follow the on screen instructions.

If none of those options work, check your computers video card control panel
settings, and reset it if necessary.

If you have any other inquires, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N150414539. Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

Best regards,
Jolene

5 out of 5 eggs144 Hz Feels Like I'm Cheating

Pros: As the title implies, this monitor will make you feel like you're cheating on online FPS games like Battlefield. These monitors are very amaznig if you have the hardware to drive them.

Cons: Just what everybody knows already. TN panels have horrid viewing angles. Color reproduction can be greater. But it doesn't bother me that much. I knew what I was getting into when I decided to buy this monitor.

Other Thoughts: I have been accused of cheating ever since I got used on playing Battlefield 4 on this monitor. It's got an advantage on people that are using 60 hz monitor.You will just see the difference when you play the game!

1 out of 5 eggsFast one

Pros: Really great monitor, beautiful, big and fast!

Cons: Came with a bright dot! Contacted ASUS and I was promised a replacement many months ago. After speaking with the ASUS rep Jolene she said they would have one sent as soon as it was available and would I give them a positive review. Of course I did but never received the replacement monitor! Very disappointing that ASUS customer service would pull a fast one!

Other Thoughts: Would change my 1 star to 5 had they completed the deal!

Manufacturer Response:
