Beauty Beyond Boundaries: Full HD AH-IPS LED-Backlit and Frameless Monitor

  • Full HD AH-IPS LED display with 178-degree wide-view angle in a frameless design for edge-to-edge brilliance
  • ASUS SonicMaster Technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® for premium immersive audio
  • Featuring dual HDMI ports for multi device connections
  • Good Design Award Winner for its ultra-slim, ergonomic design with sturdy sundial-inspired stand


Beauty Beyond Boundaries

Inspired by millennia of art, the new Designo MX Series sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design. The MX279H features an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178-degree ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ technology for incredible visuals. In addition, built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers immersive premium audio performance. The 2012 Good Design Award-winning ultra-slim and ergonomic design can be tilted to provide you highly comfortable viewing experiences, while dual HDMI offers extensive connectivity options.


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


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.


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.

  • Document: A4, letter

  • Grid: Alignment

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.


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.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the best money can buy...

Pros: This screen has a beautiful picture and the price was right for a quality name brand like Asus. It does have a Kensington lock option to keep the monitor secured (I have no use for that) and it comes with a nice variety of cables.

Cons: No VESA mounting option. This monitor must remain on its' stand. It cannot be mounted on a wall. The monitor looks like the screen goes right to the edge, but Asus cleverly made the frame the same color and blended it with the screen. Even in person, with the monitor off, it appears to have no edge. But when you turn it on, there is an almost 1/2 edge all the way around the screen which appears as a black border. Not the edge-to-edge picture it appears to have as pictured her. The buttons are touch capacitive, which means they are little metal nubs that do not move. Only certain ones work depending on what state the monitor is in. I personally hate touch capacitive buttons. I much prefer the feedback of a click that a normal button has to confirm its been properly pressed. There are two HDMI ports and one VGA port. Where's the DVI? You have to use the DVI-to-HDMI cable included with this monitor. My video card has a mini-HDMI, and this monitor did not include an adapter for that, I have to use the DVI-D port instead.

Other Thoughts: The monitor looks good, has a good picture and arrived in perfect condition. However, my box arrived with the tape opened and the tape on some of the components broken as well. Someone opened this box up and used this monitor and then put it back in the box. At least, that's what it appears happened. The built-in audio is fed automatically through the DVI-D-to-HDMI adapter right into the monitor. The sound is not very good, but that's not surprising on a monitor this thin.

4 out of 5 eggsShame on Newegg, Good Product

Pros: Let me first talk about how nice this monitor is, ITS GREAT, very crisp and bright works like a charm!

Cons: Shame on Newegg! First of all the picture of the monitor is INCORRECT the bezel is NOT that tiny... (look at the non-refurbished for actual) This needs to be changed right away! Secondly how it was shipped... They did not cover up that it was a super fancy monitor at all! so on my door step was a 35 inch fancy box facing for the whole neighborhood to know exactly what it was, UNACCEPTABLE! Instead of being cheap I would rather they charge you $5-$10 extra so it can be properly shipped. I lost 80% of my faith in Newegg in this purchase and will be looking at other avenues next time.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat TV/Monitor

Pros: Amazing color, low lag input and low refresh rate. Looks great with my PS4. Also clear enough for work use.

Cons: Not mountable to wall. -1 star for that may be nit picking. I also don't care for the touch sensitive buttons. The symbols are not back lit so if you try to feel for the button to press it sets them all off. Good thing it auto senses and changes inputs automatically.

Other Thoughts: Great monitor for work and console gaming. Anything bigger would be a bit much for a desk.
