5 out of 5 eggs1080P at it's best

Pros: AMVA+ with ASUS VividPixel brings 1080p to higher standard then average TN panel. Viewing angle is better. Came without any back light bleed and no white or black dot. All pixels were perfect.

Cons: 5ms game play actually not bad at all and worse than TN panel because the colors are more vivid IMO.

Other Thoughts: With a $30 rebate the price on this panel was a steal and worth the better panel than TN. Though you can save a bit more with TN panel the difference between it and an AMVA+_shows.

5 out of 5 eggsThin bezel!!

Pros: Thin bezel, Built-in Speakers, Height & Pivot Adjustable, Comes with all types of cables, 3 Year Warranty.

Cons: A DVI connection would have been nice, but ASUS has you covered with amount of cables/adapters that it comes with, so not a huge con.

Other Thoughts: I really like the slim bezel; I liked it so much that I ordered 2 more to replace my old 23.6" x3 set-up, which now looks a LOT cleaner with the thin bezels :) Maybe in time I'll upload a video.

Also I've seen a few reviews that were complaining about the buttons being in the rear; but this really didn't bother me. I mean its not a remote or controller so how often do you really need to hit the buttons?

5 out of 5 eggsAsus 27" monitor.

Pros: Slim border to fit under my old computer hutch where other monitors would fail to go. Packaged nice to withstand the travel. No damage when I opened the box. Plugged it in and used the DVI to HDMI cable and everything worked. No dead pixels. All buttons worked once you get to know how to use them. Hopefully it will give me long lasting monitor life.

Cons: For the non-tech person, it will be hard to figure out how to use the monitor since it only includes a quick startup guide but doesn't go into detail on what functions do what for the screen. I have an AMD 7870 card and had to go to the Catalyst Control Center to adjust the overscan so the picture goes to the border all around. If you don't do this, you will be left with 1 1/2" borders of black screen around your windows, games, etc. The speakers are your typical so-so, but I won't be using them so no problem there.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for $204 after a promo code, watching the pricing and hopefully getting the $30 rebate so this was a steal of a deal for the price.

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds better Quality Control

Pros: The monitor has a great picture and the thin bezel looks great in the multi-monitor setup I am using. The stand is awesome.

Cons: I got two of these for work a couple weeks ago and one of them arrived with a stuck pixel. After getting a replacment, everything was great. I decided to order one for my home as well. It arrived yesterday and it had a dead sub-pixel (blue). I am in the process of getting it replaced and hope that the replacement unit isn't defective as well.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with the monitors. I just wish I didn't have to replace 2 out of the 3 that I have purchased to get non-defective products.

5 out of 5 eggsnice large monitor

Pros: Small border around screen enables larger display in tight quarters than other similar sized monitors. Mounting stand allows for varying the height of the monitor. Check of pixels did not reveal any bad ones. Power on light is softer and more subdued than those on other monitors I have had. This is very nice as it causes no distraction. Matte screen is good for minimizing reflection glare.

Cons: Not really. Speakers are equivalent to those on a poor laptop, but I didn't get the monitor for the speakers and will not be using them. Adjustment controls are a bit dicey to use, but I have never had a monitor where they were easy to use, so this doesn't signify either. Had to tone down the brightness a bit, that was easily done and pretty minor.

Other Thoughts: Am not a gamer, cannot speak to performance under demanding conditions. Am pleased in all respects with appearance and performance of this monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: Looks good thin bezel Came with a lot of cables

Cons: DOA so of course I can't really comment on performance but the only con I had before was limited connections no DVI or 2 HDMI just one HDMI and one display the VGA is a joke

Other Thoughts: Received on Friday, Saturday excited to open to check out my new thin bezel asus 27 inch monitor everything looks good no major damage to the box pull the monitor out of its wrapping set up the stand plug in all the connections press the power button then WOW the screen lights up displaying lines in multi colors and what appears to be a crack going across the left side of the screen but no damage to the outside if I didn't turn it on you could never tell there was a problem very unhappy right now I don't know who's the blame for this tried calling newegg but the wait to speak to someone was 45 to 1 hour I selected the option for a call back but missed the call I will try again later the one egg is for the issue at hand not the product hoping to have it replaced will follow up later

4 out of 5 eggsVN279QL

Pros: The construction is typical ASUS high quality.

It has a good set of cables included.

It's easy to put the base on. It has a captive screw with a wire bail on it so no tools needed.

Gotta love the stand. I pivoted it 90 degrees to connect the cables.
I like the way it looks and it impressed my wife so that is worth an egg.

The display modes are interesting. I'll show my wife a few versions and set it to the one she likes for her Facebook games lol.

Cons: Instructions... well you get a piece of paper, their quick start guide. It has 32 different languages so its a bit cluttered. The info is minimal but enough I guess, I almost managed to figure out what the buttons do.
I don't think I have found the set-up menu yet. If it has one?

The buttons are positioned on the bottom back of the
monitor. Weird ergonomics.
Button labels are hard to read when the monitor is on. The light coming from the screen overwhelms my eyeballs trying to focus on the labels.

The speakers don't impress me. They do play Windows OS sounds pretty good . I tested them with a couple of YouTube vids and meh. I've got headphones for that. They will be fine for her Facebook games.

I'm knocking an egg off for the poor instructions and the hard to read button labels. I knew what to expect from the speakers from the specifications.

Other Thoughts: Its a good monitor, I bought ASUS for quality construction and durability.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks Amazing - Sounds Awful

Pros: Swivel, Tilt, adjustable stand.

This monitor has just about every feature you can ask for as a serious daily driver.

Cons: This monitor has the worst persistent high-pitch noise emitting from it. The pitch and intensity changes based on the black levels on the screen. I have tried every option imaginable on the menu as well as attempting to let it run and hoping it would just go away.

I find myself driving 15 miles to work to use my thunderbolt display instead of using this. The only way I can stand to be around this thing is if I have earbuds in that will block out the high pitch coming from it.

I seriously regret buying this. Issue likely comes from VERY shoddy capacitors.

Other Thoughts: I really wish I had just bought a thunderbolt display for home, even at three times the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Monitor

Pros: I love how the monitor will swing a total 90 degree angle for a portrait or landscape option. I purchased two at the same time and I had no issues with either one. Its a great size and a great piece of equipment for the price.

Cons: I should of bought one more for my wife LOL

4 out of 5 eggsGood product but don't expect a rebate.

Pros: This screen is just beautiful. Gaming and other daily tasks has been a joy with this monitor. The matte finish helps with glare that typical monitors tend to give. The color and contrast is superb. You can't tell that this is only 1920x1080 ( we were considering a higher res 27") because of the wonderful contrast. A great buy if you don't want to shell out a lot of money for a 27".

Cons: - No DVI
- ASUS makes it difficult to get rebate

Other Thoughts: **This does not reflect the service given by Newegg but only ASUS.

I have had good, easy experiences with receiving mail-in rebates with other companies. So obviously I thought 'Yeah no biggie, ASUS is a reputable company'. Well I was proven wrong and I am absolutely appalled with the customer service I have been given. I followed the instructions to the tee. I received an email saying that my invoice was not approved.... what? Really? They scanned and posted the documents they have received from me on my tracking link and I personally found nothing wrong with them. So I sent them ANOTHER copy of my invoice. Low and behold, I was still denied saying that my UPC code was missing. Hello?? I sent it the first time and ASUS had it scanned as part of received documents. Later they had updated the documents so my UPC label magically "disappeared" but I still had an email confirmation with the UPC number. So I forwarded them that email confirming they have the UPC label but was declined again. I wrote them several times and instead of actually reading what I had to say they replied back with the typical "Please follow the instructions". Yes I followed the directions, I know how to read okay. They disregarded what I had written in my email and replied as if I was at fault. They then told me to call their customer service line. No thanks. I'd rather eat the $30 rebate than to speak with ASUS.

In other words, if you buy an item from ASUS that claims to give a rebate.... do not look forward to getting one.
