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.

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.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and DesignASUS 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.

QuickFit Virtual Scale (Patent-Pending) 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.

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.

ASUS

Greater, Smoother Output with Bigger Speakers

Considering its slender form factor, adding powerful audio to MX279H presented a challenge. Nonetheless, the display features up to 1.25" (32mm) diameter speakers for greater and smoother sound impact with better bass performance. It also offers a resonance chamber of up to 100cc, expanding monitor sound range to new extremes.

A built-in amplifier powers speaker sound reproduction, just like a car engine with more horsepower means better performance can be attained. MX279H uses up to five-Watt amplifiers per channel, with speakers embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more powerful and striking sound.

ASUS

Audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®

ASUS MX279H delivers outstanding images and stunning graphics that deserve superior sound to complete multimedia experiences whether watching movies, gaming, or listening to music. It features state-of-the-art audio technology from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, with great sound packed into its slim form factor to create incredibly engaging sound quality. This means no investment in additional speakers is needed.

Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® technology on MX279H has been developed specifically for compact media products to create excellent sound even in confined spaces. The superior sound quality is a result of innovative technology, ample power delivery, and months of optimizing and fine-tuning by audio engineers. Typically, powerful sound equals high energy consumption, but that’s not the case with MX279H. The screen’s embedded Class D MobileSound 3 technology is highly energy efficient, converting up to 92 % of power input to useful audio output.

Dual HDMI for Extensive Connectivity

The Designo MX279H supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras to enrich users’ entertainment experience.

5 out of 5 eggsA+ Performance

Pros: I was a little skeptical about buying a refurbished monitor due to its limited 30 day warranty but have not been disappointed so far. The monitor I got was spanking brand new. The savings outweigh the risks at this point. This monitor replaces a 22" LG that died on me a few weeks ago and the difference in size is noticeable as it takes up a lot of real estate on my desk.. but that's a good thing, right!

Picture quality is crisp. Monitor has different mode settings which are pretty standard. The settings buttons took some getting used to as they can be touch sensitive as times.

As for the integrated speakers, I have not figured that out but that's no biggie as I use my 2.1 speakers. The 2x HDMI inputs are convenient.

Overall, I good looking monitor with quality features.

Cons: none for now.

1 out of 5 eggsDead pixel

Pros: beautiful design

Cons: The second time I used I found two dead pixels on the display .For sure , I use software test dead pixel , I see exactly more than two points dead pixel below the left corner of the screen .

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed, I love the Asus product and I wanted to buy this screen .I think Refurbished products will be repaired, replaced and carefully packaged before being sold for the second time

I don't think it was very bad

3 out of 5 eggsGood monitors. 1 Bad out of 4

Pros: The screen quality was very high. I got 3 for my desk and shortly after my wife's went bad so we ordered a 4th one because she was enamoured with the screen quality. The size is perfect if you are planning to set them far back on your desk. The way the stands are designed it really allows for this.

Cons: The one for my wife was DOA. The left side of the screen was nothing but gray streaked lines. We sent it back for a refund as she had already been down for a week and just chose to pick one up from a local store.

Other Thoughts: No Vesa mount which is a big shame. I found adapters that allow it to grip the monitors to use but it does detract from the way it looks.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Clear

Pros: It looks nice not turned on, sleek design.

Cons: Doesnt actually fit full screen
not clear, has lines etc

Other Thoughts: Not worth my money, but I purchased it so I'll get use of it somewhere

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: At first this monitor is overwhelming. Going to a 27" screen from a 22" inch is a major change. The screen and resolution is stunning. It took almost a week to become comfortable with the change..It also took some tweaking with the settings.

Overall you can't go wrong with this monitor.

Cons: Not much of a con, but more a incorrect photo. It is not a full screen as shown in photo. It has a bout a 1/4 inch black border.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy it again.

2 out of 5 eggsDead after 2 weeks

Pros: Great looking display for the price,

Cons: Died after 2 weeks of use. guess its to be expected when you get a refurbished item, hoping the replacement will last longer.

Other Thoughts: Speakers are ok, not the best by any means.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Nick,

I am sorry to see that your ASUS LCD has died shortly after 2 weeks of use. Have you already started the RMA process with Newegg? Being that you purchased a refurbished item, the warranty policy is a little different from a brand new unit purchase. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your ASUS LCD purchase, feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with reference case number N150127193. I would be more than happy to help assist you in any way I can.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best regards,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Vibrant colors, nice size, easy on the eyes.

Cons: Adjustment buttons are a little hard to use.

Other Thoughts: This monitor is the best monitor that I have ever bought, and I've had some pretty nice monitors in the past. I no longer play games, so I cannot vouch for that. But, it is great for everything else. I've done some nice video editing on it, and it's been wonderful so far. Reading off of it does not bother my eyes at all, and I'm usually pretty sensitive to reading off of a computer screen. The size is great because I have plenty of real estate to have several things going at the same time.

1 out of 5 eggsBezel

Pros: The monitor is pretty thin pretty clear.

Cons: The screen does not take up the sides its false advertising there are blackbars on the side the screens.

Other Thoughts: This isn't what I was going for this is terrible the black bar just makes it look like another monitor. No mount for 3 screens thumbs down.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Hitmansparky20,

I do apologize for this inconveniences this monitor has given you. Have you tried calibrating the settings to change the aspect ratio of the monitor? You can use Menu tilt / Keystone / linear or amplitude adjustment for calibration. If you have any other questions or inquires feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N141235163.

Thank you for being a loyal ASUS customer!

1 out of 5 eggsDefective unit AGAIN

Pros: Good looking, nice picture while it last

Cons: Red grid issue (All red pixels are always on at a low intensity)
When I move a window a little bit to fast, I got a flashy green trail
In movies when a character moves fast, it's all sorts of colors popping up
Loose HDMI 1 port on the back (Dont touch it, it'll fall!)

Other Thoughts: I'm tired of ASUS products, I love their products so much, but it's cheap made-in-china-and-make-no-quality-control.

Manufacturer Response:

If you purchased the monitor brand new, and you are still within the 1st years warranty I have a couple of RMA choices I can provide to you. Please feel free to email me at cl-jolene@asus.com with case number N141214952. I would be more than happy to help assist you with all your ASUS needs.
