2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this Piece Of Junk

Pros: Low priced. Thin bezel

Cons: Poor display quality, colors are washed out and contrast doesn't balance,(I tried adjusting everything), No DVI input, Buttons are on the rear of monitor, making it difficult to use OSD menu. Power indicator light is a little too bright.

Other Thoughts: Wow, a thirty-six buck restocking fee!
I own 4 other monitors, KDS, ASUS, Samsung, 22", 24", 32", 40". My other ASUS monitor VE 247H, has a much clearer picture and the colors are truer.

Overall, I rate this ASUS VN279Q a POJ, Piece of Junk!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Huge screen! The biggest monitor I have purchased so far. Thin bezel. Nice crisp text. Blu ray movies look great blacks are fantastic. I really love this monitor.

Cons: No DVI!!! I should have payed more attention before I bought it.

Other Thoughts: As for the fellow referring to this monitor having the quality of a tube tv.... He did something wrong. Either the resolution is incorrect or he has the ASUS VividPixel at 100. I recommend turning VividPixel off.
The only time I use this feature is for some games that could use a bit of sharpness and color boost and for anime..... VividPixel at 75 makes 1080p anime look great. Other wise it is useless and makes text unreadable, really can have a negative impact on quality.

3 out of 5 eggsASUS monitors, issue with AMD video card over HDMI

Pros: large screen.

Cons: This monitor has compatibility issue with AMD video card over HDMI. It can't show full screen with about 1" black edge and display also blurry. No issue when using Display port cable. No issue when connected to Intel or nVidia video card over HDMI.

I also can't get integrated speaker work via included audio cable.

1 out of 5 eggsQuality of a tube TV from 2001

Pros: Beautiful looking display, when it's OFF. Sleak design and pretty looking narrow edges around the screen.

Cons: Absolutely bloody awful picture quality, in all forms of connectivity. VGA looks better than HDMI because HDMI really brings out the flaws in the picture.

This screen is absolutely AWFUL. It reminds me of back in the day when I hooked up my computer to my 32" Sony Trinitron tube TV. The text has jagged edges and the entire Windows OS looks like trash.

I wouldn't recommend this to ANYbody if you don't want your eyes strained after 1 month of use. It's my office computer screen and my biggest regret of 2014 so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Quality

Pros: Thin bezel, no dead pixels, DisplayPort.

Cons: Wobbly stand, typical monitor speakers.

4 out of 5 eggsclean and sleek

Pros: Thin and nice. Though very large screen size, takes up very little space. The screen is so smooth i killed bugs on it and left no smears or traces of bugs.

Cons: at first i was overwhelmed by the led backlight, it was too bright and the colors felt off, after a couple adjustments and time spent with this monitor, i would throw away my old monitor.
basically...
*too bright

4 out of 5 eggsHOT PIXEL in the middle of the screen

Pros: Great monitor! I have 3 of them on my desk right now. I ordered 1 from Newegg and 2 from another store because they were out of stock on newegg. The one I have to rma came from newegg but I am just having them send me another one.

Cons: The 2 from the other store work great but the one I got on Newegg has a hot pixel. A pixel that is brighter than all the rest. I was hoping it would fix itself or I would be able to see past it but I can't. It is annoying as... I think this actually happened in the shipping of the item but I could be wrong.

Other Thoughts: Again I think these monitors are great. I am just a little heart broken that I have to rma and wait another week after spending almost $900 for all 3. I am thinking about returning for a refund and buying another one so I do not have to be without one.... And now I have to find a convenient time to ship back within the next 25 days....

1 out of 5 eggsNot exactly great

Pros: Crisp image when I had the screen.

Cons: Rma'ed the first time because of a very noticeable tilt to the right from the mount to the base stand.

Received the rma'ed screen today and it still tilts and now it doesn't turn on. I thought it was the power cord, swapped it out and nothing. Hopefully rma'ing it again will get me something in a working condition.

Other Thoughts: Have to attempt kind of wished I went with the Samsung led seeing as how my 24' samsung screen of 6 years is still going strong. This experience will definitely influence my decision for the next time I purchase a screen.
