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!

5 out of 5 eggsMajor Uppgraydd

Pros: So before I bought this I was using a 720p 32'' T.V. This more than blows it away. I cant believe I haven't been getting the most out of my high end computer over $1500 built gaming rig. I know this monitor is a few years old when it came out, but for me this is wonderful. Also I got this at a great price.

Cons: No dead/stuck pixels, I guess they've finally fixed that issue.

there is a small un-noticeable light bleed from the top left corner. But after reading up on it, it seems normal for a LCD to have some light bleed, I can only hope that it doesn't increase over time.

Coming down from a 32'' kinda sucks but I'm not about to pay $800 for a 32'' monitor, the 27'' is quite nice actually

The swivel could be better, but isn't bad.

Other Thoughts: I know this isn't top-of-the-line anymore, but until 4k and 1440p comes more frequent/cheaper then I'll stick with this.

Haven't tested the 3D yet but I plan on getting it someday.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: High resolution, Fluid motions, and great build quality.
Tilt, swivel and height adjustment, so you get the perfect view.

Cons: No USB, no Display port, No 3d over HDMI.
Ports come out at a weird angle, so have to lay the monitor on its face to access them.

Other Thoughts: would buy again

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Beautiful

Pros: Crystal clear, huge, with precision of colors that blows my old retail Acer out of the water. Haven't tried the nVidia 3D yet- new card coming in Monday!

Cons: Minor complaints-
1) Height is adjustable... to two positions. Base or +10cm, nowhere in between.
2) This HIGH DEF, GAMING monitor comes with a VGA cable and DVI, but no HDMI cable. It's like buying a Blue-Ray burner, opening the box, and finding you've also paid for a stack of CDs and a stack of DVDs... but no BRDs.
3) The case under the inputs has a lip that makes it extremely difficult to mount cables- whatever jerk put those VGA and DVI cables in there clearly never tried to screw one in to this particular model before.

Other Thoughts: I didn't do a page by page analysis, but it would have been nice knowing that the 500 something dollar monitor came with cheap cables for Word users instead of the obvious. That aside, this thing ROCKS. It's STUNNING. I hope against hope that it serves me this well for years to come- I couldn't ask for a better monitor by any standard!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price.

Pros: Fast response rate, good for gaming, very stable and adjustment friendly stand.

Cons: The picture quality is not that great. I have to adjust several times before I can play Far Cry 4. The color is somewhat kind of dark. Also, the viewing angle is limited and I can see washed out color (Don't really bother me at all though). Also, the build-in speaker is not as loud as I thought. I always set it to max volume and still have difficult time to hear sometimes. In additional, after hours of gaming, the fan inside the monitor starts to get a little noisy.

Other Thoughts: It is still very good monitor though. All of those cons don't bother me that much but if you want the best monitor out there for gaming, then this is not the one.
