ASUS Designo 27" 1440P Monitor (MX27AQ) - QHD (2560 x 1440), IPS, Eye Care, Frameless, DisplayPort, HDMI, Space Gray + Black

Pros: I was putting a pc together part by part as I saved up the money and I had left the monitor for last because I was not sure what to buy. I was aiming for the pb278q from Asus but I did not like the way it's housing looked. That lead me to look at Asus' Mx series but sadly they didn't have a 1440p monitor in the Mx series which really sucked. Until the day I was roaming the lonely planes of pcpartpicker and I saw this baby. It didn't have many reviews since it was brand knew but knowing Asus' reputation I took a leap of faith and bought it. It came in a surprisingly thin box, it was in perfect condition and assembly was a single screw on the base. Once assembled I noticed how small it looks compared to other 27" monitors and I realized it was because of how small the bezels were. The image is pretty sharp but the real benefit is the fact that it's is such a large screen with that sharpness. It helps a lot when working on a model in AutoCad or Inventor because it makes one forget that you are looking at a piece of metal glass and plastic and more like looking into a magic portal into virtual reality. It sounds a bit silly but makes sense once you see the appeal of a 1440p monitor. As for gaming, I do like it a lot. It is no 144hz monitor but it makes up for the fact with the rich colors coming from the IPS panel it's got. I have no complaints from this monitor at all. It impressed me with its bezel, resolution and surprisingly it's speakers. They aren't as good as a dedicated solution that has full and rich sound, I admit it lacks any real base but it is far better than what I expected from tiny speakers built into a thin monitor. So yes I do recommend this monitor if it will go into a work station, gaming station or anything else for that matter. Hell, if you are a narcissist slap a photo of your self and enjoy because I do!

Cons: Why wasn't it out sooner?
