2 out of 5 eggsNasty experience

Pros: Bright, big monitor

Cons: sporadic connections through any digital input port. Behaves this way for both my laptop (as a debugging step), and the build I bought it for.

No sound from HDMI connection when it is established.

3 out of 5 eggsNice screen for the price. but screen has a hot spot on the right border

Pros: Large screen for the price. I got this for about $200 after discounts and rebate.

Cons: My display has a very hot back light on the far right of the screen. Its as if the display is back light by florescent lights on the edge of the LCD but the box specifically says it uses LED to back light. These are typically behind the panel but this display may use the LED's on the side to light the display.

Its not bad enough for me to work up a return but some folks might not like it if this is indicative of the model and not just my display.

4 out of 5 eggscompetitive play

Pros: It does look nice with the picture presets, and of course you can edit each preset individually; each preset can also be edited and saved for later, and of course reset a single preset to the way it was. Good for fighting games if you are the type that likes a responsive Display. Good features is that the TV goes to rest if there is no display after 1min and comes back on when it detects signal.

Cons: There is some spotty parts on the display; however its only noticeable when you are on a black screen(like loading screens) No Tv controller and no way to connect one either. The buttons get hard to see, and even frustrating to press sitting there and setting things up. Also The manual doesnt have all the information to how to set up and the monitors extra feature. Last complaint would be that the display has a washy look sometimes not sure how to deal with it soooooooo.

Other Thoughts: For a 27inch "lag-less" tv i am very happy that i got this thing. Bigger than most other competitive tv's and still affordable

1 out of 5 eggsAsus refused to honor a rebate

Pros: The monitor itself is fine, though it requires some work to get the colors right.

Cons: I bought the monitor with a mail-in rebate offer. I happened to lose the box before I could send in the rebate, and before I could get the UPC number from it. Asus told me they refuse to give me the rebate without that, even though I have the monitor itself and plenty of proof that I bought it. This is terrible practice and companies should be discouraged from behaving in such a deceitful way.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome display

Pros: Has an amazing picture with some minor tweaking of the default settings. Sound is actually surprisingly decent for a flat screen.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: Using this on a windows 10 machine with 2 older monitors as well. Have had no issues at all.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome All Around!

Pros: This is an amazing monitor! Before buying, I read a lot of reviews about it being "washed out," having "bad black levels," and "bad color," but I thought I'd roll the dice to see for myself (generally these "issues" are due to users not knowing how to properly calibrate a display or adjust settings correctly, not in the display itself). In this case, my assumption paid off.

When I first turned the monitor on, it indeed did display the "issues" mentioned above, but within about five minutes of simple adjustments on the standard onscreen menu, I was able dial it in and make it display great color and black levels, and not appear washed out. Please remember, that when purchasing a new display, many times they are optimized for in store displays to make them stand out when they are next to competing displays... this generally means the settings will be completely different from what they need to look like for actual use (AKA brightness is way too high, colors are off to make it appear more "appealing," and contrast is way off from what it should be).

The fact that this monitor has 1ms response and three different types of video inputs (2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, and 1x VGA) were other huge pluses to me. Someone had commented about why a VGA port was included, well, for people who still service or use devices (not just computers) that use this interface (and there are many of them), it is a great feature to have, and for me, it was a major selling point.

I also read negative reviews about the stand. Yes, the monitor wobbles a little when you bump the table, not a big deal, the thing is huge meaning that should be expected. The stand however is solid and heavy, and in no way makes it seem like the monitor would tip over.

Cons: Nothing!

Other Thoughts: For people commenting about this display being "washed out," having "bad black levels," and "bad color," please take some time to adjust the settings to what you want before buying a bad review... this monitor has plenty of parameters useful for calibrating it correctly which adds more value to it. This is a good practice for any monitor or TV you buy, you will find that these same "issues" are common complaints for many display products, but it is not the product, it is the users lack of knowing how to set it up properly.

I would highly recommend this product. Great quality and great price as I would expect from ASUS!

Pros: Hello,
Here is my first review of my new screen ASUS VS278Q P-designed for gaming. Fast delivery by Newegg and the price paid for a 27 inch screen of this class will be the only positive points I'll give you about this review.

Cons: If your goal is to actually use the full potential of this screen in Windows 10, then go see elsewhere because it will obviously not the case. No driver available and since the release of Windows 10. Some will tend to say it is not serious just use the Windows plug & play drivers but unfortunately there’s a big problem with that. Since the Plug & play drivers is not in the list to enable G-SYNC option, it won’t show it and you won’t be able to use it.
Another frustration, you will agree with me as is the cable package supplied with the monitor. Is it normal that in 2015 or 2016, Asus still includes a VGA cable in the box? Would not it be better value provide a Digital Port cable, as the main function of this monitor is used only in conjunction with this cable? For me it's been over 10 years I haven’t used any VGA cable for my own PC monitor.
Finally, despite ASUS designs good product, I arrive at the same point for why i distanced myself from them in 2008 relate about drivers problems and unable to make my stuff work easily without taking so much time on the web trying to make it work properly.
Here’s the only answer I got from ASUS help department and it worth a 0 on my scale of service.

Thank you for contacting ASUS.

I understand that WHQL info is not available on the support site. Please accept my apology for the inconvenience this has caused you. Our development team will be working on the WHQL drivers. Please visit our support site at random intervals to find the information related to drivers.

For any further queries, please feel free to reply to this E-Mail. We
will be glad to assist you.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

Other Thoughts: At this moment i'm waiting for a solution since i cannot roll back to windows 7 to be able to use this monitor. I really hope ASUS will fix this very quick so i will be able to do a real review of the product and capability instead of getting stuck with a normal 27 inch display monitor.

In my opinion, ASUS need definately to work better for their drivers since it's the same recurring problem on all the ASUS Stuff i bought since year 2000. So it's not like a new problem.

Be kind, english is not my native tongue so i tried to translate it from french has the best has i can.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice for the price

Pros: - When upgrading from an 8 year old 22" this monitor seems massive.
- 1ms response time is nice. Compared to the 8ms response time I'm used to, a 1080p movie looks amazing. Fast paced scenes with camera panning look smoother.
- Right out of the box the colors are very accurate. I was expecting (based on many reviews I've read) to have to spend a lot of time calibrating it. After trying some calibration guides online I barely had to change any settings. I did turn the brightness down a bit.
- 76hz refresh rate is good since I couldn't afford a 144hz monitor this size. People say refresh rate doesn't matter too much but I think those people just don't have sharp eyes. It means you can push your frame rate up above 60fps without screen tearing.
- Contrast is very good. Text and lines that are supposed to look hard are very hard and crisp.
- It weighs as much as the 8 year old 22" that it replaced.
- I haven't had any trouble with Asus products in the past, so I like Asus.

Cons: - Stand is a bit wobbly. If you have a wobbly desk the monitor is going to jiggle a bit. The monitor is very light though, so I don't see any damage possible. This is less a con and more of a nit picking.
- Out of the box settings are way too bright. Wasted 10 seconds on my time turning it down. Ok that's not a real con. I'm just copying what many other reviewers have said.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to upgrade to a 144hz monitor, but it wasn't in my budget. After looking at the stats on my old monitor (8ms response, 60hz, 500:1 contrast) I figured this monitor would be a massive improvement. I was right. I don't have buyers remorse. I don't wish I waited 3 months till I could fit a $600 monitor in my budget. All the reviews I watched and read about this monitor were coming from people that compare top of the line technology. All the things they pointed out as faults seem a bit far fetched when I look at it myself. If you're looking to upgrade from a monitor that has quite a few years on it, then I think you'll be as impressed with this one as I am.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent but not worth buying

Pros: its great for gaming 1 ms really reduces my screen tearing issues i had with other monitors and for the price a 28 inch monitor

Cons: i am not very impressed with monitor i have tried every thing the viewing angles at the edges are always dark or white washed take your pick no matter what setting you are in would not recommend

Other Thoughts: this monitor would be great if you had a custom mounting system where you can hang directly above your head other wise current mounting when you stair right into it you get dark edges

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Dustin,

Thank you for your time on posting this review, we are sorry to hear your experience with the ASUS monitor. Please allow me to assist you.

Have you tried using the monitors features like the preset modes or calibrate the monitors settings to try to fix the issue. The monitor has a viewing angle of 170°(H)/160°(V). Please try also using different cables or use the monitor to a different computer (if available) for comparison.

If you need further technical assistance or if you want to discuss this matter with me, please email me at and put case #N151069263 in the subject line for a reference. I'm here to help you and all others with these issues, as our customer loyalty department dedicated to bringing a resolution to all issues related to our products.

4 out of 5 eggsGood monitor.

Pros: Big. Menu buttons actually better than most monitors.

Cons: I had to do an initial toning down of the gamma and other things. It was too bright. Also, even though it has a DisplayPort on it and is what I am using for my video card, it didn't come with that cable.

Other Thoughts: It's a good monitor. I can't complain, and of course Newegg shipping is usually great!
