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 eggsSo far, so good.

Pros: Solid monitor, great picture, solid build, solid base, good response time.

Speakers are about on or just below par with my Thunderbolt display. It's just kinda, there. However, sound is not why I bought the monitor.

Cons: Does not come with an HDMI->HDML. It comes with a HDMI->DVI, but not a plain cable. Just a heads up.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my new gaming rig I built, no issues, no dead pixels. I don't see what people are saying about the control panel buttons being too sensitive. It's perfectly fine, people complain far too much.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitors

Pros: Big and bright with really small bezels. I bought two and they sit next to each other nice and close. Very aesthetically pleasing, too. They up the real estate value of the whole desk neighborhood.

Cons: Not mountable

Other Thoughts: I use these for dual screen software development. Lots of room, no squinting or side scrolling to read that 1000th line of nested code.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Picture

Pros: This monitor has a very stylish look with a beautiful picture to back it up. I swapped my LG 32inch TV for this and haven't looked back. The picture is sharp, no bleed, no dead pixels, and easy to set up. The options are easy to navigate onscreen and allow for a very wide range of display options. I use this monitor for a majority of gaming and I don't see any streaking or screen bleeding. Just a sharp fast picture with deep darks and vibrant colors.

Cons: I don't see this as a con ,but the only con I can think of is that the monitor does not come with any DVI connections, its 100% HDMI with 1 VGA. It does come with a DVI to HDMI cable, but my cards all have HDMI so I just used that.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews Blast the speakers on the monitor, though they do not sound like a surround sound setup (sarcasm), they are OK. I don't use it, I have it hooked up to my Afterglow wireless headset with Dolby Surround Sound. But if you buy a monitor like this because you want good sound then you are doing it wrong! Priorities guys, its a monitor, and a darn good one.

1 out of 5 eggsYou can't mount these to monitor arms

Pros: None

Cons: So, another thing I just found wrong with these monitors is that YOU CAN'T MOUNT THEM TO MONITOR ARMS!!!

I bought these for a dual monitor setup, now I can't optimize space on my desk because of a terrible design decision to not put mounts on the back.

What was Asus thinking?!?!

Other Thoughts: These monitors have been an expensive mistake. Avoid.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Alan,

This particular model is desgined to be placed on a desk that's why there's no VESA holes on the back. However, we have other models (majority of our ASUS monitors) that are VESA compliant and can be mounted. If you need assistance in selecting the right monitor for your needs, please contact me at cl-celeste@asus.com and include case#N140705192 in the subject line. I encourage you to reach out to our Customer Loyalty Team for further assistance with your ASUS products.

1 out of 5 eggsPretty junky

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap.

You will hate the touch sensor buttons at the bottom left corner of the panel.

You will hate accidentally touching the wrong button because they are squeezed together so closely, then having to touch those buttons thirty times to get out of a menu you didn't want to open.

You will hate the counter-intuitive and confusing menu system.

You will hate the way the audio never comes on all the time.

You will wonder why they didn't just use regular, push-activated buttons, then realize it would have cost them an extra thirty cents to do that.

Other Thoughts: I really wished I bought a different pair of monitors.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor overall

Pros: Great design, small bezel, light weight, great picture.

Cons: Arrived with one dead pixel....Which kinda bothers me with how much I paid for this monitor. Obviously with it being just one pixel...It's not really worth sending it back, which kind of makes it worse for me.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize to hear your pixel issue. But our monitors meet the ISO 13406-2 standard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_13406-2.
Please try this tool: http://flexcode.org/lcd.html and allow it to run overnight under high contrast and brightness settings. Feel free to email me your inquiries, comments or concerns about this product at cl-celeste@asus.com and include case#3768580 in the subject line.

5 out of 5 eggsNice IPS LED LCD Monitor

Pros: Excellent Clarity, Stylish Design, No Dead Pixels on Arrival and Setup. Very Light Monitor (You can pick up with one hand).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Speaker sound quality is the equivalent of your standard non-gaming Notebook computer. Recommend buy or attaching to an existing surround system and assign those speakers as center speakers.

Pros: Great resolution at a reasonable price. Not a graphics person or gamer, but I don't believe you can go wrong with this monitor for any use.

Cons: None I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Very bright display with a lot of options to dial it in the way you want it to look!

Great picture quality for gaming! Been playing quite a few different games on this including WoW, SWTOR, Defiance, War Thunder and The Secret World. The games all look amazing on this monitor.

Cons: I had some issues trying to get the picture to take up the entire screen with Win 8.1 Pro 64bit. I did end up having to download the AMD Catalyst Control Center and adjust the scaling options to get it to fill the entire panel. Was a bit of a pain to figure out though.

The manual really offers no direction. The online manual is much better.

Other Thoughts: I have owned the monitor less than a week but am very impressed with the quality so far. I was not sure if I would like this monitor, but then I saw it on display locally and decided that I wanted to try it out. I am glad that I picked it up as part of my new gaming build.
