4 out of 5 eggsgood monitor

Pros: colors do look nice and makes my old samsung p2770 look washed out. very happy with colors

Cons: the backlighting is bad.. very bright, on a black screen when all colors are black from the led backlight it doesnt look so black. and there is no way to change the back light. the buttons are so sensitive they start doing stuff when my finger is about 1/2 inch away from them... very hard to surf the monitor menus

Other Thoughts: i'd put this monitor worth about 280 no more... it really dont have very many menu options at all... all in all i do like 2 of the preset modes, which is scenery and game...

4 out of 5 eggsHappy with the buy overall

Pros: - Looks great! Very slim bezel and nice looking stand
- Screen size is excellent. Not too large either.
- Easy to adjust color settings
- No dead pixels
- Small external power square

Cons: - Buttons can be kinda weird to work with, but it isn't worth docking an egg for it
- As others have mentioned, pixels are somewhat visible at 1080p on a 27". I still love the monitor though, but if this is an important con for you, then go with 1440px or smaller screen size

3 out of 5 eggsLooks good on the outside, but...

Pros: Sleek, very thin bezel, looked very good on my desk.

Cons: 1920x1080 is very pixellated at 27". This monitor might look good, have a fast response time, nice color, etc., but that means nothing to me if I can actually see the pixels in diagonal lines. I RMAed it.

Other Thoughts: Coming from an old Dell Ultrasharp 24" monitor, I was expecting better resolution, smoother lines, and somewhat crisp text. As soon as the "Asus" splash screen appeared, I noticed the pixellation. I really think we are all becoming spoiled by the high resolution smartphones and tablets. I would spring for one of the higher end Asus monitors. Don't get caught up in the "outer beauty" of this one.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Beautiful design. Very sleek and elegant. Sundial stand is a nice touch. Colours are nice and the panel is very responsive for an IPS.

Cons: Slightly low due to the sundial stand not having any height adjustment capability. Menu touch buttons take a bit getting used to, but contrary to other comments, the menu is very straight forward. (The up/down and left/right icons are displayed right in front of the buttons on the bezel.) Wish it was 1440p. Coming from a 24" monitor, 1080p just doesn't quite cut it for me now at a 27" size. Live and learn, though.

2 out of 5 eggsNo VESA Mounting Holes

Pros: Lots of features.
Sleek aesthetic design.

Cons: This monitor is one of the few that does not have VESA mounting holes on the back. This information is nowhere to be found in the specifications, and there are no pictures above of the back of the monitor.

I suppose as a feature, the argument could be made that they do not need to list this deficiency, but as the vast majority of modern monitors have this capability I feel it is similar to not providing them with a stand, and expecting the customer to notice that a functioning stand was not listed on the product features.

After I had already purchased this monitor, I noticed there was an exisiting 1 star review complaining about this issue, along with a response from an ASUS customer service agent asking the customer to contact them. I decided I would contact ASUS myself to see if they could help in anyway. This was their response:

"Dear XXXXX,

Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
My name is XXXXX and it is my pleasure to help you with your problem.

I am afraid to say that VX279Q doesn't support VESA mount. Hope you could understand.

If you continue to experience issues in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us."

Extremely helpful. I guess ASUS only tries to resolve your problems if you post a negative review in a public space.

TLDR: I should have paid more attention to the common monitor features that were not listed on this product before buying it and ASUS customer service will help with issues that have public exposure that they wouldn't ordinarily help with.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a monitor without VESA support, I suppose this is probably more of a 4 or 5 star product. However the only feature that REALLY mattered to me was missing, so for me it is a 1 star product.

2 out of 5 eggsShort lived...

Pros: When working...fast response, good color rendition, design

Cons: Died after 2 months, menu buttons are overly sensitive

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed with this purchase. My Samsung monitor that I had previously worked for 6 years without a hitch. This Asus monitor lasted about 2 months.

1 out of 5 eggsNice when it worked

Pros: Nice design (frame less)
Small footprint
Speakers are good for what they are

Cons: I have had this monitor since the beginning of December (almost 3 months) and now its starting fail. The monitor constantly restarts, it has restarted 10 times as i am writing the review... contacted Asus and they gave me the generic response ( check your cables) even though I have stated I had already done this. I thought this monitor would be a upgrade coming from a 6 year old hannspree but i guess not.. now the speakers are cutting out, the menu buttons are non responsive, and there is no indicator light on the monitor unit itself. I would save your money and go with something else

Other Thoughts: seriously ive never been so disappointed with a Asus product...

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDefects in 2 weeks

Pros: good spec

Cons: The screen is turning bright to dark and again to bright, this cycle seems to be forever. Tried 3 cables and 4 PCs and 1 Mac and different settings, the problem remains the same...

Flashing lines in the top of the screen...

Other Thoughts: Poor customer service

I should have bought the monitor from other brand...

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Monitor

Pros: Beautiful picture, very aesthetic looking. Slim bezel (slimmer than my old Samsung P2250 at least).
No dead pixels. Nice and slim
Couldn't be happier

Cons: Not really a con but yes the buttons are very sensitive. It takes a couple minutes to figure out how lightly you need to touch. Not a big deal though

Other Thoughts: I was on the fence about getting an Asus or Samsung. Glad I went with this monitor. Asus is a great brand! I can't wait to get a couple more of these. Hopefully this monitor outlasts my Samsung. 27' is HUGE!
Very happy!
