2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing Defects

Pros: Physically looks identical to the DVI version of this monitor (which I own and like).

No dead pixels.

Cons: 1st issue was a washed-out look; blacks were grey and overall it just looked desaturated. I played with settings to no avail. I found some comments online blaming the HDMI, saying that it is defaulting to RGB (correctly) but that the HDMI only works properly in CMYK mode. I switched this in my Nvidia Control Panel and boom, perfect picture. 3 hours killed right there.

2nd issue was that my power button stopped working, and all the other buttons now behave like a power-button. Menu turns it on and off, up and down do the same, etc. Power button = nothing.

3rd issue is that it periodically loses power/connectivity. There appears to be no physical trigger for it, just random. I'll just be browsing and boom, black screen. Or I'll turn it on to nothing.

Frustrating and disappointing. I will not be buying any more monitors that don't have at least one DVI port.

Other Thoughts: 2-eggs instead of 1 because I think this is an isolated issue with this individual monitor, rather than a brand issue. My other DVI version of this same monitor is great.

5 out of 5 eggsLegit monitor

Pros: This monitor looks great. I had 3 23" Acer IPS displays before. They had better viewing angles but the colors and picture did not look nearly as good as this monitor. The 27" with 1080 might be weird for some but for me I think it's fine. I don't notice any crazy pixelation or anything. It has 100x100 VESA mounts and also has 2 HDMI ports.

Cons: It would be cool to be able to adjust the height but you can do whatever if you get VESA mounts. Menu is kinda weird to navigate with the buttons but I've seen worse. It has meh speakers but what else do you expect.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale for around $170 and I'm glad I did. I don't think I would have bought it otherwise.

3 out of 5 eggs2 Dead pixels

Pros: Nice LED screen, good size, picture quality is good

Cons: After 1 month I got 1 dead pixel and 3 months after I got another one.
so I have 2 dead pixels

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I didn't contacted ASUS because I saw in the comments that they don't care about dead pixels and according to the warranty up to 3 dead pixels is OK. .. so It's not...

2 out of 5 eggsDIsappointed

Pros: Once I dialed in the settings it looked ok. Great response rate.

Cons: As soon as I plugged in the monitor I noticed it looked super washed out compared to my old Asus monitor. It took a while to dial in the settings to get them to look decent. I noticed when I was playing a game and it called for almost all black and dark gray loading up that there was what looked like a white box in the middle of the screen. Like everything was a shade or 2 lighter than everywhere else. It lookes like something was sat on the screen and it was damaged.

Other Thoughts: This is my second Asus monitor that I've had to send back to get one that was correct. Don't think I'll buy an Asus monitor ever again.

2 out of 5 eggsWouldn't buy, but I did

Pros: Big screen with beautiful color (please see cons).

I like where the power button is.

Cons: Beautiful color in the middle of the screen, but on very side, the backlight is bleeding so much, my blue wallpaper looks purple on the sides!

Red dead pixel a inch from the top right side of the screen after less than 12 hours of use!

Hard to use the buttons to navigate in the monitor's settings.


Shipping it back to newegg, whill get an IPS panel instead, maybe with a 1440 res

Other Thoughts: Not a big con, but 60hz as a refresh rate is kind of noticeable when moving windows around or when watching hd movies. Reading some reviews about 27 inches monitor, people complain about seeing pixels mostly while reading texts, it's not that worst and with soime gpu tunning it gets better :)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your purchase of an ASUS LCD display monitor. I do apologize that it did not work out for you, and you decided to return the monitor. Your valuable review is greatly appreciated. We hope that you will consider purchasing from us again soon. ASUS would have to lose a valuable customer as yourself. I have also documented your feedback, and it will be analyzed for further review. If you ever have any questions about an ASUS product, feel free to email at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N141163779.

4 out of 5 eggsEarly impressions

Pros: Pleased with this in the first days. Clear, sharp image. No bad pixels. Easy setup. Stand does not wobble on a sturdy desk. DVI-to-HDMI cable included. Brightness, contrast, other visual characteristics are fine (see disclaimer below). No splotchiness, lighting is even.

Cons: For me this replaces an older ASUS which was 1920 x 1200 (16 x 10 rather than 16 x 9). Unfortunately that ratio is no longer available - I miss those 230K pixels.

Controls are poorly labeled, and inputs are in awkward positions to attach cables to, but those things are true of every monitor I've ever seen.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried the speakers. Colors seem correct but I have not considered this very closely, as it is not critical for me - if you need high accuracy for your work, find out more.

This and VE278Q seem to be very similar variants of the model, but this cost less and some of the specs are better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase

Pros: Crisp image, solid size, even pretty good sound for built in speakers.

Cons: None as of this moment.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any issues that some of the other reviewers have had. Everything is as it should be. I highly recommend this monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsfairly satisfied

Pros: looks great, item is as described

Cons: taking an egg off because the power connection is loose. It will fall out if you move the monitor or touch the power cord near the connection. not a fan of the stand either but i knew it wasn't gonna be great when I ordered it

video cables that came with it were a little short for my setup

Other Thoughts: grab some electrical tape to keep the power cable in

unless you like your monitors an inch off the table get a different stand/mount or a riser

2 out of 5 eggsI had high hopes for this monitor

Pros: Big screen

Good response time

Great price

Cons: After about 3 weeks of use, I turned it on one day and found a nice little red pixel in the middle of the screen. After a couple days of trying to fix the stuck pixel nothing worked, so I sent it out for a replacement.

I got my replacement today and was happy to see about 9-10 white stuck pixels!

Other Thoughts: I'm definitely not going to get a replacement again or buy a monitor from Asus ever again. Debating on getting a refund or just keeping it since the dead pixels are far to the left and out of the way, not TOO noticeable but I still would never buy a monitor with dead pixels.
