Summary: Initially I was very satisfied with this monitor. I have had great success with other ASUS products and I read all the revues and felt like it had good ratings so I thought it would be a good buy. Well my 30 days to return ended on Nov. 24th. and around the 1st of Dec. the monitor started shutting off for no reason. I thought it might be the HDMI port so I changed it (didn't help) so then I changed the cable too. Still it kept shutting down frequently.
Summary: I dont know if this is overstock or the manufacture. but the monitor arrived with a vertical line of continuous dent from the top of the screen down for about 5 inches. when you turn the monitor on, the dent area has a color of lower intensity compare to other area of the screen.
Summary: I used this product for about a month, everything was alright until 2 major issues shown up. 1). The screen would flicker every 25-30 minute or so, this is definitely not a laptop problem as I have tried 3 different laptops on it 2). The plastic located at the lower part of the monitor is cheaply glued to the monitor. After a month of use, part of the plastic is coming off by itself.................
Summary: This monitor is awesome when it comes to colors. I use it mainly for gaming and the refresh rate and response time is perfect. I don't notice any ghosting at all. Being only 1080p and 27 inches, it does require some hefty AA to minimize "staircase effect". This completely normal for monitors that are larger without having a high resolution and not to be considered a flaw. See below for issues I encountered.
Summary: Quick synopsis: Asus makes great products but if you need support... be ready to be seriously let down. Had the monitor for 2 days when it started to flicker. Called ASUS support and had to leave a message. No one called me back so I found the email address and sent in an email. After getting a case going i was able to call in and talk to someone.
Summary: Purtroppo Non ho potuto verificare la qualità del Monitor perchè quello arrivato non riusciva neanche ad accendersi, problemi di alimentatore ??? bo non sò comunque ho già messo in opera la facoltà di reso con rimborso. Già domani vengono a prenderlo poi vediamo la velocità di rimborso.
sehr gutes Bild, schlechte Qualität, katastrophale Endkontrolle

Summary: Habe mir Anfang November 2013 drei 27 Zoll LCD-Monitore zum Testen bestellt. Neben dem Asus MX 279 H bestellte ich auch den wesentlich teureren Asus PB 278 Q und den günstigen Samsung SyncMaster S27B350 H. Der Samsung fiel wegen des äußerst wackeligen Standfußes und der mangelhaften Bildqualität sofort raus. Die Entscheidung zwischen den beiden Asus Monitoren fiel mir aber nicht leicht.
