5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: The pros to this monitor are it's a great looking monitor great picture quality had no dead pixels or any other screen imperfections I have a high performance PC and play some quality games and they all look smooth and for this price it is actually a a great price for this monitor.

Cons: Well I just noticed this about this but nothing that really effects it to me but the built in speakers sounds like cra* so if you dont already have speakers when you buy this I would advice you to do so. I wanted to test them out and I just did not like it and not going to ever be using it so it will not effect the way I think about the monitor itself. still a good monitor all around for the price

1 out of 5 eggsASUS VE 278H

Pros: 1. competitive price.
2. great reviews in newegg. usually you get great product w/ great reviews.

Cons: Bad readability and blurry image.

when you scroll up, there are two or three lines that you can't see lines clearly.

There has been no change of those problems w/ different cables(HDMI, DVI and old VGA port) and computer systems.
It is a problem of this monitor.

Initially I blamed for old video card then upgrade new video card w/ same problems.
no change w/ windows 7 64 bit and windows 7 32 bit.

Other Thoughts: I have been buying ASUS product from motherboard then notebook upto this monitor.
As far as monitor, I would recommend to buy more established company such as Samsung w/ a little more moneys or smaller screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor !

Pros: Great Picture
Easy setup
2xHDMI connectivity
Minimal ghosting and smooth response
LED so black levels and contrast are excellent

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: My girlfriend purchased this monitor for me, and I love it! I was using my Samsung 40" smart LED TV as a computer monitor when we decided to use it as a TV again. She bought this monitor for me and I must say, the picture is even better than my (less than a year old) sammy. I mostly game on my computer and watch videos, and this monitor has the perfect picture for both. I am considering using the 2nd HDMI to plug in my PS4 to this as well. I have read other reviews and seen that dead pixels are common, but so far so good none here. Also people don't like the stand? or speakers. I feel the stand is a bit small visually, but nudging the monitor doesn't make it feel unstable, even though it looks like it would be. And as far as the speakers, I use a Logitech 2.1, so I probably won't ever hear them.

1 out of 5 eggsnot impressed

Pros: its a big monitor ,, got my rebate

Cons: 1 dead pixel,,,, bad ghost shadows I tried three different computers still see the shadows ,, tried adjusting the monitor still has the problem ,, first time buying asus might not buy again ,, I would have shipped back to newegg to get my money back but I already cut the box for my rebate ,, next time I will check the monitor before cutting the box ,,had a friend look at it he told me to rma the monitor ,,iam not happy ,, should have bought it local ,, its a lot easier to deal with, probally would not had the rebate,, should have kept my 22 inch samsing monitor that I bought new in 2009 I gave that to my girlfriend ,, it still worked great with no dead pixels and no ghost shadows ,, should have not bought the 27 inch asus monitor ,, what a waste of money

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

Pros: The screen is huge and has the ability to be used as a TV and Computer Screen. I hooked up my PS3 to the additional input. The built in speakers are not a replacement for desktop speakers but they are decent enough.

Cons: There are no USB ports. Totally uncool. Can't plug in anything to my monitor now. Also, when I shut off the monitor, it doesn't immediately come back on. It turns on, says no signal, then goes to standby, then I have to move the mouse to get it to wake up. I don't think its my computer or power settings because my second monitor comes on no problem. It might have to do with the way the HDMI signal is sent to the screen.

Other Thoughts: When I first got the screen, it took some getting used to because it was such a huge screen. Now, I am a bit more used to it but wow... it is still sooo big!

1 out of 5 eggsDO Not Buy ASUS products

Pros: none

Cons: ASUS tricks you into thinking you are getting a lower price product by offering rebates. They conveniently lose your mail-in documents and wait until the filing period is over.
This company is a rip-off.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy ASUS products.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

1 out of 5 eggsDead pixel, but great monitor

Pros: The monitor is great and all. But has a dead pixel on it. The picture quality is fantastic and i love it for doing my gaming and 3d work. The 2 HDMI ports are helpful and was the main selling point for me.

Cons: Dead pixel. And the menu interaction is awful. Power cable should be longer.

Other Thoughts: Really upset at having to pay for shipping to send this back for the dead pixel. Thanks newegg. So it gets one egg, unless newegg decides to reimburse me for there mistake of sending me defective products.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jp Self

We are sorry to hear about the pixel issue. ASUS flat panel displays meet the ISO 13406-2 ISO standard so if within 36 months, you spot 3 or more bright dots or 5 or more dark dots, please contact us and we’ll offer you rapid replacement for this monitor. If you see a stuck pixel, please try this tool: http://flexcode.org/lcd.html and allow it to run overnight under high contrast and brightness settings. For questions, comments or concerns, please contact me at cl-celeste@asus.com and include case#3583885 in the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsDead pixel, but great monitor

Pros: The colors and clarity is really great. The response time is also fantastic for my gaming needs in BF4. The two HDMI inputs were my selling point fr this monitor. In case i want to get some cable tv, or console gaming in with the same monitor.

Cons: The menu buttons are agitating and not that user friendly.

I also have a dead pixel an inch form the bottom right side of the monitor. It's really not that noticeable. So i am debating on if i want to keep the monitor as is, or mess with the hassle of waiting for another to come back in a couple weeks.

Other Thoughts: The speakers work. They are not blasting some bass or anything, but they are functional. Great back up speakers in case your earphones or other speakers break down.
