ASUS VN279Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: First as title says great for multi screen setups. , It has VESA mounts for monitor stands or wall mounting. Tiny Bezels under half inch except for bottom one which is slightly larger.

Lots of screen real estate and did I say tiny bezels yet ??. Excellent picture and several picture modes. The same as Asus uses in most all of there monitor panels. RBG mode, Scenery mode, theater mode, Game mode, Standard mode and Night view. I seem to prefer theater mode myself. The speakers that they come with are good for what you are getting. I guess what I am trying to say is they are not bad for built in speakers and will do in a pinch.

Full HDMI and the blacks are magnificent. I have 3 of these panels. Interestingly this is the same panel as the Asus VN279QL, the only difference between the VN2769Q and the VN279QL is the much nicer stand that comes with the L model and the L model also comes with every CABLE, Display port, HDMI, Display port to DVI and HDMI to mini HDMI. The price difference between the two is usually 20 bucks however in my opinion if you are going to use the stock stand and not mount them the extra 20 dollars is well spent on the nicer stand and cables. My 3 are on a triple stand. They are nice and thin for panels without power bricks. I have yet to see any light bleed or bad, dead, stuck pixels.

One last comment is that I think Asus monitors seem to be of very nice quality I have these 3 27 inch panels and I have also purchased 3 24" inch monitors Asus VH238 and all 6 Asus monitors worked flawlessly out of the box and continue to do so. No stuck/dead pixels on any of them. That's pretty good no matter what your expectations are.

Cons: I guess the lack of a DVI port is my biggest gripe. Also if you are going to wall mount the on/off and controls are on the bottom back of the panel so you would need to have a little gap to get your fingers behind there to turn it on/off and or change settings. Personally I don't like they come with speakers but that's a small gripe.

Other Thoughts: Over all I have 99% good things to say about these panels, I watch a ton of movies and play my PC games deep into the night, Very pleased with these monitors. Buy this or the VN27Q model when they are on sale and rebate to keep costs under 300 bucks. The Asus rebate is 30 dollars and well worth sending in. Also just follow the instructions and the Rebate process works great

ASUS VN279QL Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First as title says great for multi screen setups. You can even use the included stand for all 3 screens as you can use the stand to run in landscape or portrait, Or if you prefer it has VESA mounts for monitor stands or wall mounting. Tiny Bezels under half inch except for bottom one which is slightly larger.

Lots of screen real estate and did I say tiny bezels yet ??. Excellent picture and several picture modes. The same as Asus uses in most all of there monitor panels.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Don't be afraid or Worried 03/29/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: I was very worried about moving from Win 7 which I love to Win 8.1. It was for nothing.
It's the retail version so you get a 64 bit disc and a 32 bit disc.
You can install it on as many PC's as you wish, just one at a time. I need this as I swap my hardware like underwear. Often ;)

The much talked about "Start" button is BACK !! so no worries there. You can make Windows 8.1 look like Windows 7 if you like.

Windows 8.1 boots faster than Windows 7, Other than that speed increase I think they are about the same in operation speed.

My main PC use is for browsing and gaming, I run 3 monitors in Nvidia Surround and this version of Windows handles all my games and all the Nvidia settings and setup just fine. Windows 8.1 also runs all my games perfectly. I have not had one issue with Windows and PC Games.

Cons: Getting used to it is only real con. Im not sure Microsoft will keep this interface next time around after it kicked up so much dust. You know what though ? it's fine.

The Metro interface, however it's not really a con once you start to play around all those squares now look nothing like it did when I first started using this operating system. I now have the tiles on my metro start up all changed out to the ones I want. All my app's and games are now on my Metro.

Other Thoughts: I needed a new copy of Windows, I had an OEM copy of 7 and I upgrade hardware alot. The folks at Microsoft have been very kind to let me validate after upgrades a few times. I didn't want to push the envelope. So since the price on Retail Windows 8.1 is in a very good spot. I went for it. Im glad I did.
