The VE278Q by Asus mixes visual excitement with modern sophistication. Powered by LED backlight technology, the 27-inch monitor delivers sharp, true-to-life images through speedy 2ms response time and ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio that dynamically adjusts the display’s contrast ratio according to the image content, up to an astonishing 10,000,000:1. Full HD 1080P native resolution and HDMI & DisplayPort inputs bring you into a spectacular world of colors, no matter what you are watching - thanks to Asus exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology.

AI Light function enables the VE278Q to automatically adjust to lower brightness and make your eyes feel more comfortable in the dim environment. Furthermore, it helps save 25% in power consumption. For versatile use, the VE278Q is also embedded with rich I/O ports such as DVI, D-Sub and 3.5mm audio & earphone jacks. Picture in Picture function displays 2 different signals simultaneously via a simple push of the PIP hotkey. Built with green in mind, the Asus VE278Q still brings you a stunning visual experience in a contemporary package.

1 out of 5 eggsIt just did not do it form me.

Pros: More real estate and picture in picture, which I did not get a chance to try.

Cons: After 2 hours of operating time a dead pixel popped up. Terribly disappointing seeing as my previous monitor was open box and came with a dead pixel. This monitor was brand new, shame. RMA'd and due to stock it was only available for refund. Apparently I bought the last one.

Other Thoughts: Like I said I had to return it. Later on turned into a great situation. Did some research and found my way to a website that starts with A and ends with N where I found the 278H, a 2 year newer model. It was 3$ dollars cheaper than the 278Q. The 278H has 50 million contrast ratio vs the 10 million of the Q model. No picture in picture, but display port is replaced with a HDMI output making the H model have 2 HDMI ports. Great buy that I do not regret at all!

4 out of 5 eggsBig, black and beautiful

Pros: The screen really does look beautiful. Crystal clear, great blacks.
Even includes speakers!

Cons: Mine has one funny pixel that sometimes turns red on dark/black images, so that's a bit annoying. Most of the time I forget it's there and can't even find it, but I've never had an LCD screen with a defective pixel before so I expect nothing but perfection. It's still not annoying enough to repackage and ship this huge thing back. Not doing that.

Other Thoughts: Aside from the pixel, this monitor is wonderful. Especially at a $200 price point. Looks/feels like a $300+ piece.

2 out of 5 eggsNice Monitor But Not Without Quirks

Pros: Clean looking, bright sharp colors, plethora of control options.

Cons: Whenever the computer sleeps, the auto detect continuously sounds the device connect and device disconnect every 4-5 seconds untill you wake the computer from sleep mode. It's enough to drive you crazy. I emailed Asus tech support and got some generic message:

"Please check whether you are experiencing this issue with all the display ports. Also, please check whether your computer's display settings are properly enabled.
If issue persists, I request you to check by connecting the monitor with different cable as well as with different computer. "

There is only one display port available and I used the cable that came with the monitor and don't really want to change computers. My old monitor (Acer G276HL) worked fine with the same graphics card, which happens to be an Asus R9 380X Gaming. My only solution was to turn off the device detect sounds in my windows sound menu which, of course, is a real nuisance.

Other Thoughts: I've seen other people on the internet with the same exact problem and no solution. If you buy this monitor, beware of it's pitfalls.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Excellent color and brightness, low power.

Cons: Asus did not give me my rebate even though I sent them the right stuff. Tracefree only works for a little while or until you change the setting, after which ghosting appears until you set it to 0. This also happened on a 24" I bought from them.

5 out of 5 eggsLong Shelf Life Can mean Good Things

Pros: Nice & sharp a year and a half ago and nice & sharp today. Old one still at default settings so new one matches perfectly. GREAT VALUE!

Cons: Plastic edging is a bit wide for multi-monitor setups. But could buy several of these for the cost of a single Other.

Other Thoughts: Just bought a second one of these to match the one I bought in September 2014. Really says something that a monitor that was available a year and a half ago is still on sale today. First one's still rocking (DVI-input only, so I can't can't say anything about DisplayPort or speakers or picture-in-picture).

3 out of 5 eggsNot new anymore!

Pros: 27" for an ok price.

Cons: Screen had one dead pixel from day one. No big deal! However, within six months a line of dead pixels appeared across three quarters of the top of the screen.

Other Thoughts: ASUS was nice enough to issue an RMA, and fortunately I saved the original box and all the packaging so I shipped the monitor back. ASUS repaired the monitor within a day and had it shipping back to me the next. Upon opening the box, which was not an original box, I noticed the monitor was shipping in rigid plastic with simple bubble wrap covering the screen. The edges of the monitor are marred by the rigid plastic. The corners of the monitor are slightly scuffed and I can see glue. The screen is big and bright again. Games look really good. No dead pixels. However, with the marring and the scratched, glued corners I feel I do not have a "new" monitor anymore. I've bought other ASUS components in the past and have never had a problem until now. I don't think this experience will put me off of ASUS in the future, but it will be worth considering.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: I love this monitor! I upgraded from a very small 20" LED Wide Screen to this Full screen. Words cannot begin to describe how awesome this product is! All I can say is thank you Asus!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have enough desk room for this. It is a full screen 27" monitor!

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: Bought three of these in total, huge 27 inch screens with 2 second response time. Love it so far.

Cons: The only problem I had and I'm not completely sure if it's a problem tied to specifically these monitors but when I was setting up my third monitor via Displayport I couldn't get a signal no matter which port on either of my two 980 Ti cards. I asked everyone's best friend Google about the issue and found out that unplugging the power cable from the monitor for about 10 seconds or so then plugging it back it fixes this issue.

Other Thoughts: Surround gaming on these babies is completely amazing love it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, picture in picture is cool!

Pros: I bought this monitor to add to my current dual monitor setup. It is much brighter and more vibrant than my pair of Hanns-G HL272's, I had to tone down the default settings a bit so it wouldn't stand out so much from the other two. Lots of configuration options in the OSD.

Cons: The layout of the buttons on the bottom of the display are rather non-intuitive when using the OSD menus.

Other Thoughts: Has all the right inputs, and the built-in speakers are a nice feature to have I guess but I don't intent to ever really use them. The OSD menus look pretty. I didn't realize this when I bought it, but this monitor has PIP (picture in picture) capabilities! You can use this to view a second input in a window on the monitor. Seeing as I have this monitor sitting in the middle of two other 27" displays I don't see myself using this feature very much, but still very cool if you don't have that kind of ridiculous screen real estate to work with.
