5 out of 5 eggsAsus 27" Monitor

Pros: I have had this monitor for about a year and have not been disappointed. I use this monitor as my primary computer display as well as my tv on the rare occasion I watch regular tv. I have an hdmi from my verizon TV box to this monitor and a DVI from my computer to this monitor, allowing for easy switching back and forth. The picture quality is amazing and the 2ms response time makes everything look incredible with no ghosting or blurred images or video. And so far I have not had an ounce of trouble with this monitor. I hope to be able to say that again in a few years. Thanks ASUS, I am very happy with all of your products. I am looking to buy a new laptop now and would really like to make it another ASUS because all the products seem to last.

Cons: The built in speakers are pretty awful, which I guess is to be expected. They are very small and very low power. But it is easy enough to plug in external speakers and away you go. I use them for watching TV once in a while and of course have separate speakers hooked up to my computer which is what I use this monitor for mostly. I can't think of any other cons.

Other Thoughts: Good value for the money and an amazing picture. If you want amazing sound though, you may be disappointed. Be prepared to use external speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent monitor - Good value

Pros: Excellent picture quality. A very large monitor at a very reasonable cost through Newegg.

Cons: Although the screen itself is matte (good), the bezel is very shiny (bad). I have no idea why Asus made the bezel shiny; you just see reflections in it like a mirror and dust and fingerprints show very clearly.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing Defects

Pros: Physically looks identical to the DVI version of this monitor (which I own and like).

No dead pixels.

Cons: 1st issue was a washed-out look; blacks were grey and overall it just looked desaturated. I played with settings to no avail. I found some comments online blaming the HDMI, saying that it is defaulting to RGB (correctly) but that the HDMI only works properly in CMYK mode. I switched this in my Nvidia Control Panel and boom, perfect picture. 3 hours killed right there.

2nd issue was that my power button stopped working, and all the other buttons now behave like a power-button. Menu turns it on and off, up and down do the same, etc. Power button = nothing.

3rd issue is that it periodically loses power/connectivity. There appears to be no physical trigger for it, just random. I'll just be browsing and boom, black screen. Or I'll turn it on to nothing.

Frustrating and disappointing. I will not be buying any more monitors that don't have at least one DVI port.

Other Thoughts: 2-eggs instead of 1 because I think this is an isolated issue with this individual monitor, rather than a brand issue. My other DVI version of this same monitor is great.

5 out of 5 eggsLegit monitor

Pros: This monitor looks great. I had 3 23" Acer IPS displays before. They had better viewing angles but the colors and picture did not look nearly as good as this monitor. The 27" with 1080 might be weird for some but for me I think it's fine. I don't notice any crazy pixelation or anything. It has 100x100 VESA mounts and also has 2 HDMI ports.

Cons: It would be cool to be able to adjust the height but you can do whatever if you get VESA mounts. Menu is kinda weird to navigate with the buttons but I've seen worse. It has meh speakers but what else do you expect.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale for around $170 and I'm glad I did. I don't think I would have bought it otherwise.

3 out of 5 eggs2 Dead pixels

Pros: Nice LED screen, good size, picture quality is good

Cons: After 1 month I got 1 dead pixel and 3 months after I got another one.
so I have 2 dead pixels

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I didn't contacted ASUS because I saw in the comments that they don't care about dead pixels and according to the warranty up to 3 dead pixels is OK. .. so It's not...

2 out of 5 eggsDIsappointed

Pros: Once I dialed in the settings it looked ok. Great response rate.

Cons: As soon as I plugged in the monitor I noticed it looked super washed out compared to my old Asus monitor. It took a while to dial in the settings to get them to look decent. I noticed when I was playing a game and it called for almost all black and dark gray loading up that there was what looked like a white box in the middle of the screen. Like everything was a shade or 2 lighter than everywhere else. It lookes like something was sat on the screen and it was damaged.

Other Thoughts: This is my second Asus monitor that I've had to send back to get one that was correct. Don't think I'll buy an Asus monitor ever again.

2 out of 5 eggsWouldn't buy, but I did

Pros: Big screen with beautiful color (please see cons).

I like where the power button is.

Cons: Beautiful color in the middle of the screen, but on very side, the backlight is bleeding so much, my blue wallpaper looks purple on the sides!

Red dead pixel a inch from the top right side of the screen after less than 12 hours of use!

Hard to use the buttons to navigate in the monitor's settings.


Shipping it back to newegg, whill get an IPS panel instead, maybe with a 1440 res

Other Thoughts: Not a big con, but 60hz as a refresh rate is kind of noticeable when moving windows around or when watching hd movies. Reading some reviews about 27 inches monitor, people complain about seeing pixels mostly while reading texts, it's not that worst and with soime gpu tunning it gets better :)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your purchase of an ASUS LCD display monitor. I do apologize that it did not work out for you, and you decided to return the monitor. Your valuable review is greatly appreciated. We hope that you will consider purchasing from us again soon. ASUS would have to lose a valuable customer as yourself.

4 out of 5 eggsEarly impressions

Pros: Pleased with this in the first days. Clear, sharp image. No bad pixels. Easy setup. Stand does not wobble on a sturdy desk. DVI-to-HDMI cable included. Brightness, contrast, other visual characteristics are fine (see disclaimer below). No splotchiness, lighting is even.

Cons: For me this replaces an older ASUS which was 1920 x 1200 (16 x 10 rather than 16 x 9). Unfortunately that ratio is no longer available - I miss those 230K pixels.

Controls are poorly labeled, and inputs are in awkward positions to attach cables to, but those things are true of every monitor I've ever seen.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried the speakers. Colors seem correct but I have not considered this very closely, as it is not critical for me - if you need high accuracy for your work, find out more.

This and VE278Q seem to be very similar variants of the model, but this cost less and some of the specs are better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat purchase

Pros: Crisp image, solid size, even pretty good sound for built in speakers.

Cons: None as of this moment.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any issues that some of the other reviewers have had. Everything is as it should be. I highly recommend this monitor.
