Got this because of the high egg rating, now I want another one 7/9/2020 3:25:32 PM

Pros: easy to use in document mode

lots of ports

settings are easy to access and change, the menu system is easier than most I've used. I especially like the four way joystick with press button

Cons: it's heavy?

The viewing angle isn't so great in portrait mode, it was clearly designed for landscape mode. Still, portrait mode is perfectly usable, if not as bright as in landscape mode.

Overall Review: It's great, I didn't expect so many features for the affordable price
I'll likely purchase two more, one for me, one for my SO

Decent monitor 6/29/2020 7:54:18 AM

Pros: I am really enjoying the monitor, it has a nice display and alot of great built in display settings.

Cons: The audio port on the back doesn't accept mic in. I was really disappointed that a monitor labelled gaming and has an aux port on the back wouldnt accept a mic in as most people I know wear a headset when playing to talk to people.

Overall Review: Overall decent, didnt get 5 stars because of the mic issue.

Great Monitor!!!! 6/12/2020 3:40:44 PM

Pros: A lot of landscape.
Beautiful colors right out of the box.
Easy set up.
Plenty of inputs.

Cons: No cons.

Overall Review: I have used ASUS Monitors for as long as I can remember with a few other brands in the mix, but ASUS has been the go to monitor for many' many years. I bought this to replace an ASUS VE278H because I wanted more on screen space not because the old one was broken, it went to my great nephew. This MG278Q filled the bill nicely it is now over 4 years old and still going strong, no dead pixels.

Nice and big but lacks in color. 6/8/2020 9:37:50 AM

Pros: Its 4k and cheap

Cons: Bad colors

Overall Review: I would give this a 2.5 egg but I cant. The issue is the color or lacking in any dynamic range. I have been using NVIDAS digital color correction to get to a tolerable status. I use this for gaming and work from home so profies have been saved for each aplication I use it for. So if you dont mind that and dont want to watxh movies on it its a good price.

Defective and looked used. 5/20/2020 7:19:55 PM

Pros: None.

Cons: This monitor was in terrible condition when I received it. When unboxed it had two visible streaks on the LCD screen. After using it for awhile it developed a white spot in the center of the screen from top to bottom about six inches wide. Now it is completely unusable.

Overall Review: This monitor did not look new.

Asus warranty beware !!! 4/29/2020 5:11:04 PM

Pros: I bought this monitor to replace my 3 year old MG28UQ, which is the same as this monitor. I had to buy a new one, because Asus service warranty on this model is a total lie. The Asus ad for this monitor reads as follows: ASUS Rapid Replacement 3 years warranty service with "free cross shipping" is included, so you can game on, worry-free. This is not true and as 2 weeks went by no replacement, had to finally send back the unit for repairs and that would be another 2 weeks. So I decided to buy a new one here!

Cons: Bad warranty service

Overall Review: It is a great monitor, but has a bad warranty !

Big upgrade from my current monitors. 4/15/2020 10:22:14 AM

Pros: pictures look great.

Great for reviewing drawings and large business documents 4/9/2020 12:19:14 PM

Overall Review: I did not buy this for gaming. For a large monitor to review detailed drawings this is the best bang for your buck
Color temp and blue level settings were a huge bonus
