Subtle & Elegant Design
Incredibly Subtle but Sophisticated

ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles - with MX279H measuring just 0.6" (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.

Vivid, Lifelike Visuals
The Latest IPS Technology with 178-Degree Wide-View Angles

ASUS

Designo MX279H features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178-degree 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.

MX279H uses a 178-degree (H) / 178-degree (V) ultra-wide viewing angle full HD AH-IPS A+ panel that eliminates color shift from almost any direction and in nearly all environments.

ASUS

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. 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.

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.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS MX279H 27" IPS - Refurb

Pros: Loved the full screen / narrow bezel / sharp clear HD for about 60 days.

Cons: After about 60 days, the screen setup {Auto-Fit} took over after being powered on for 3-10 minutes. The Auto-Fit cycles a few times on its own, then powers off the monitor without notice. Listed locally for $50, maybe someone can fix it.

Other Thoughts: ASUS was a quality brand I have recommended several times but never purchased. I will think twice in the future.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Well I have to say that the display is marvelous, sound is crisp and adaptability on the use of the buttons is pretty nice. The design is also well executed I can stare at my set up for hours on end just because how good this monitor looks.

Cons: Only con i find is that it has very low volume speakers, therefore i constantly have it in 100. Once you get to hear the speakers it is actually really crisp.

1 out of 5 eggsVery bad quality monitor

Pros: looks nice.

Cons: This is my second one in a row that I can't have any more patient to try again. The first one with hundreds of dead pixels. This second one with control switch and firmware issue. It arbitrarily flashing on/off by itself. The settings showing, and switch from one setting to another automatically w/o any interaction with the user. Once I decided to touch the buttons then no reaction as I wish. Definitely the control switch panel and the firmware having issue.

Other Thoughts: I've tried 2 in a row. That's enough. It's a waste of time. I'll buy a new different model after I got a full refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Thinh,

1 out of 5 eggsbunche of dead pixels

Pros: looks nice, light weight

Cons: Quality is below average. There're bunch of dead pixel flashing red in the middle of the screen. It's not just one or two but 100 or 200. You can tell clearly on the dark background.

Other Thoughts: I've tried the second chance but no better in quality. One way or another the monitor is bad.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Thinh,

1 out of 5 eggsnon-matching serial numbers

Pros: nice looking monitor if you get one that works... 50/50 chance

Cons: serial # on monitors don't match the box... so you are outta luck if you need to exchange or return.

Other Thoughts: spend the extra $30 for the new monitor.... it will save you hours of anguish trying to prove that you don't counterfeit Asus monitor boxes for a living.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor

Pros: Nice, sleek, and pretty! Makes my other LCD monitors seem outdated and bulky. Comes with DVI to HDMI cable.

Cons: Not good if you want 2K resolution, but those monitors cost 3x as much.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding monitor, refurb has been perfect

Pros: Amazing picture with a matte display that doesn't show reflections or glare. Colors pop and gameplay is smooth. Unique, stylish appearance. Refurb had no defects I can find, zero dead pixels, and all accessories.

Cons: None I can find

Other Thoughts: Is not a 144 monitor, but I knew that when ordering it, so obviously no points taken off for that. If you want a large, clear, beautiful gaming monitor and value size over 144hz, this is a flawless choice.

4 out of 5 eggscheap nice monitor 1 dead pixel

Pros: Best monitor for the value, absolutely love it

Cons: 1 stuck pixel bottom right on the screen, I was thinking about returning it but its just too much hassle and sometimes the pixel starts working for short periods of time, maybe it will come back, fingers crossed. I guess not bad for refurbished tho.

Other Thoughts: Good buy
