Frameless monitor, frameless beauty

The Designo MX Series MX279H monitor is the 2012 Good Design Award Winner for its ultra-slim, ergonomic design with sturdy sundial-inspired stand. It is undoubtedly a piece of artwork. However, artwork cannot tell the whole story. This Full HD AH-IPS LED display offers 178° wide-view angle in frameless design for edge-to-edge brilliance. Built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, delivers premium immersive audio. Dual HDMI ports allow you to connect two HD devices once at a time.

  • newegg Subtle & elegant design ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with MX279H measuring just 17.5mm at its thinnest point– thereby minimizing desk space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.
  • newegg The latest IPS technology with 178° wide-view angles Designo MX279H features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved color accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.
  • newegg Built tough and gamer-centric comfortable Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX279H provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion during gameplay.
  • newegg ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279H augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.
  • newegg QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the MX279H, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.
  • newegg Premium Immersive Audio The Designo MX279H features ASUS SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower. This ASUS-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Great picture and color. Thin bezel, could be thinner, but makes this monitor fairly decent for multi-display setups. Having the buttons on the bottom of the screen also helps. A lot of complaints have been about the touch sensitive buttons, I've never had an issue with them and i find them sleeker than push buttons.

Cons: No back-mount, but I knew this when i bought it as it's not necessary for me. If you wanted this back-mounted you'll have to create something yourself.

Other Thoughts: Overall great monitor. I have always been pleased with ASUS products.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: The color on this is great, with various modes depending on how you like your displays. Looks beautiful overall, very nice design. I use this as my main monitor for my pc and play my PS4 on it also.

Cons: I hate the heat sensor buttons. If you are in the dark and cannot see exactly where the buttons are, get ready for a lot random button presses you did not intend on. At one point I turned on some editing feature and had some boxes locked on my screen for a couple hours until I figured out what I did....

Other Thoughts: Overall I love this monitor, just wish they would do away with the heat sensor buttons....not very many people like them anyway.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent picture... from far away... for two weeks... then it died...

Pros: Nice Colors, great picture from a distance

Cons: I bought 2 of these for a dual setup. Both have vertical line noise... a lot of it! I set the sharpness to 50 and vertical line noise is obvious on some colors. Set the sharpness to 70 and vertical line noise is obvious on other colors. I'm running DVI to HDMI. I think I will try running it through VGA. Also, about two weeks after receiving them, my right monitor flickered and had an image burned in, the flickering and image burn gradually went away after like 2 hours. 2 weeks after that, the left monitor did the same thing!! Not sure what that's all about. Maybe someone a bit more technical can tell me??? I'm not sure if it's just bad quality monitors OR i have bad noise from another source...

Other Thoughts: Menus are cumbersome because of the touch buttons.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Andy W,

Thank you for your purchase of two ASUS LCD display monitors. I am sorry to read about them not properly functioning correctly, and then dying after a short 2 weeks life span. Please feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150514028. I would be more than happy to provide you with some options to help fix this matter. I believe your monitors may have a hardware issue if you are experiencing some sort of noise. To confirm that it is coming from the LCD's try to test them on a different computer to see if you get the same issues. If so, your monitors will need to be sent in for service.

Thank you for choosing ASUS computers!
Best regards,
Jolene

2 out of 5 eggsAwful customer service

Pros: Great monitor in general
Sounds decent for built in speakers
Looks good

Cons: Worst customer support I've ever dealt with. It would take an incredible long post to list all the times they've fvcked me over during my RMA. Recived the monitor with 4 dead pixels and many that had dead sub pixels. Sent it in almost a month ago and still have not received it. I have been lied to by numerous support representatives about receiving a new one and have to deal with their Indiana facility being closed due to "acclimate weather"- which has a reputation for awful customer support. These are only a few of the things I'm having to deal with. 2 stars for the monitor itself 3 off for awful support and getting dead pixels which many others have reported

Other Thoughts: Give me a monitor! i spent nearly $300 and only had it for a day

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer

I certainly understand your concern with regards to the monitor that you have. I would like to personally assist you about this matter. Kindly email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and place case # N150317020 in the subject line for a reference to your case.

Best regards,

4 out of 5 eggsAll good but...

Pros: Very nice monitor with setting to adjust to your liking.

Cons: Mine has had a problem with a vertical line about one inch from the bottom logo going all the way to the top.. It comes and goes. Tried the usual fixes but it seems that its the monitor. Trying ASUS support, cant do a case number(always give me a undefined rejection) Tried to leave a call back name/number(always full and hangs up on me)

Other Thoughts: Finally got a case number by calling a different number. Nice guy though-he will make sure I don't have to explain all again and escalate to maybe allow an exception for the 90 day thing since I've had the problem off and on for months...we will hope so.

2 out of 5 eggsYes and NO, but merely so so

Pros: Color depth is amazing while having very little bleeding. Very thin bezel, but I'd still not recommend it for a multi monitor setup side to side. Extremely bright (also a con though) mine had no dead pixels and I've owned it 11 months. I didn't buy it from newegg, it was in a local box store, and it being ASUS, I figured it must be good.

Cons: Every setting is so bright!! It reminds me of the dynamic mode on newer TVs. I dislike that a lot! Things just don't look right. Do NOT bother trying to read text. By far the worst monitor I've ever owned when it comes to the text. Not only are they blurry, but you can see colors surrounding the black text. It really just looks horrible. No display port, and it didn't say that on the box. Nobody at the store knew if it had one either. If I hadn't been called out of town for 3 weeks after I bought the monitor I would have returned it. Unless you want really bright colors, and just an overly bright display in general I'd steer clear of this one. Unless you like gaming with sunglasses on. (I actually may try this now just to see if it makes it more tolerable)

Other Thoughts: Overall I'd not recommend this monitor to my clients, or friends. I am amazed ASUS released such a poor quality piece of equipment. I'm usually completely satisfied with ASUS. This one fell far from the tree. Then fell in a hole where the floor gave out, and fell some more.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear DrunkenHammer,

I am sorry to read that you are not completely satisfied with your purchase of the ASUS MX279H monitor. Have you considered calibrating your graphics cards settings to help with the contrast of the LCD's color hues? You may also manually adjust the settings to your preference as well if you do not like any of the preset modes that came with the LCD. Below is a suggestion that may also try:

Monitor settings:Brightness 54% Contrast 80% Saturation 50%
nVidia settings: Brightness 58% Contrast 43% Hue 180 degrees Saturation 54%

In regards to the blurry text you are seeing, check the screen resolution and set it at the maximum native resolution. Or, you may got into your control panel settings select the Display select Adjust Clear Type Text, and then follow the on screen instructions. If you would like to discuss this mater further, you may also email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150194492​.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

5 out of 5 eggscheck your video card color settings before adjusting monitor settings.

Pros: good viewing angles, nice colors without being too bright. Fiar price for mid level monitor.

Cons: None. Sure it does not have a dvi or display port, but I was aware of what I was purchasing.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat...until it dies

Pros: Beautiful and elegant monitor...until it crapped out.

Cons: 3 months and 1 day after purchase, the monitor started to flicker uncontrollably - like a fluorescent light with a bad ballast. Doesn't matter which input I use, which computer I connect to, or which wall outlet it's connected to. So now I get to start the process of trying to return something for which I no longer have the box for (and will likely be forced to ship it back on my dime). Thankfully I still have the receipt.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!
