Dead Pixels Galore

Pros: Good colors and picture

Cons: Dead pixels Went through two and both had a dead pixel, I wouldnt waste my time because newegg doesnt even test these just try another brand because I lost faith in asus after this but if you feel lucky try it out and you might get one without a dead pixel, Ive gone through two and am now worn out and dont even feel like exchanging this one again

Other Thoughts: theres better brands and places to buy that double check monitors, it might even be worth it to double check in person to see about dead pixels these days a purple one isnt that bad man man a red/green/yellow one can be SO ANNOYING!

Good product, worth the money I spent

Pros: Great colors
Clear picture
Nice looking monitor
very small bevel

I've had two of these things for maybe a year now and they're going strong. Nice picture and everything, haven't even thought about replacing them or anything.

Cons: Literally my only issue with these monitors are the touch buttons. Cool at first but they're either freakishly sensitive or don't respond to touch at all (they pick and choose when they like to work) and it's hard to navigate the menu. It's a very small issue, definitely not worth ruling this monitor out over.

Oh, one more thing - be careful with them. The matte finish actually scratches pretty easily and it can be a pretty harsh reality check. My mic bumped one of the monitors and now there's a 3 inch scratch on the middle/top of the screen. Makes me wanna cry.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend. Be careful for scratching and touch button bumps but beyond that they're really good monitors.

Great design, not so impressive specifications, fair price & in 1 year 4 dead pixels.

Pros: - design is great. Slim & lightweight but in same time stable because of round shaped base.
- price is a plus. When i compare it with HP or Dell, Asus is best buy
- this screen has more than enough compatibile specification for 3d & 2d job

Cons: - LCD panel is not so reliable, in fact, during the 1 year of exploatation, i`ve got "cluster" of 4 dead pixells at the middle of the screen.
- Asus have worst service shop in Croatia, therefore i cannot recommend this Monitor. Although i`ve got a 2 of the same at my desk.
- 3 year warranty does not make a sence with such horrible support in Croatia.
- refresh rate of 60 hz, isnt it too low?
- does come with museum style VGA cable, without display port cable

Other Thoughts: - if you dont live in Croatia, maybe i could recommend it. In case that you live in Croatia, no.
- in general, well designed, fair priced
- cannot recommend cuz of big cluster dead pixells on the middle of the panel, and disgustingly "we don`t care" service support in Croatia

After a Month of Research

Pros: Clarity, Sharpness, Contrast, Color, Price (When it was $199 after $30 rebate.), Design, DigitalPort, Speakers

Cons: One Bad Pixel, 5ms Seems Like It Could Be A Slight Bit Less Blurry,

Other Thoughts: After shopping for approximately a month for a device that would double as a work monitor for independent movie post-production from a MacBook Pro via DigitalPort, as well as an HDTV for a PS4, this is what I chose. Over the course of that month, I spent roughly three hours a day, three days a week researching reviews and models--everything from televisions to computer monitors. Brick and mortar to online.

It's easy to see why so many individuals become overwhelmed with specs, techs and choices, or, rely on a few reviews to purchase a monitor. Instead, I took the less traveled route. Remaining patient, I was led to a choice that resulted in zero doubt that the ultimate, #1 device for my current needs was chosen.

Other than the monitor having one bad [red] pixel (only prevalent on dark scenes or black background) and the 5ms GTG (grey to grey) response time being a hair slower than I was hoping for, this monitor is solid. This, I claim as someone who spends an average of two hours a day on a MacBook Pro (Mid 2014) with a Retina display. The VX279 is even sharp enough for reading text at desk sitting distance. Eye fatigue has also not been an issue.

Viewing angle is wide and bright. Colors are rich and vibrant without seeming fake, shiny or boosted in an uncanny artificial way.

Sound from the built-in speakers are usable, capable and good--but just barely.

After looking at everything from ultrawide screen monitors to 4K televisions--from Acer to Westinghouse--I can state with confidence as of the time of this review: this is the best choice for under $250.

Period.

(Will remain forever amazed how sleek, sharp and defined the design of this monitor is compared to the other cheap plastic rectangles in this price range.)

Disappointing

Pros: DisplayPort input. 27". Game mode crosshair or timer.

Cons: When using displayport, you must use the displayport audio out of the computer if you want to use the speakers or headphones jack on the monitor. The monitor will not use the audio in jack, Picture quality is rather poor compared to other less expensive monitors. everything looks a little washed out. I worked in video engineering/production and have calibrated many monitors. I cannot get accurate colors using SMPTE test patterns to calibrate the monitor.

Other Thoughts: newegg will not let me return this monitor for refund. buyer beware of this monitor as there is no way to get your money back on it. other online retailers that cannot be named in newegg reviews will accept a return on any product that is not satisfactory. very disappointed in newegg's refund policy for products that do not meet minimal expectaions. In this case, audio in always available and being able to calibrate colors to SMPTE standards.

Decent Monitor - Build Quality Questionable

Pros: Decent display. Beautiful design.

Cons: I've owned this monitor for about a year and a half. The bottom bezel started separating from the screen a couple of months ago. At this point there's about a 2mm gap between the screen and the bottom bezel. Disappointing.
