Disappointed for Now

Anonymous, Newegg
10 February 2016
  • Summary: I want to recommend this monitor but I am holding off to see what my experience will be when I send it in for RMA. I have read the reviews about the customer service of Asus. I am hoping my experience won't as what I have read.
  • Pros: Will update after Asus fixes my monitor.
  • Cons: - Not a year has passed since I purchased this monitor and it is already having horizontal line noise in the lower third of the screen. - I did nothing out of the ordinary, all I did was turn the monitor on as I started up my computer. - A point of information: I am a system builder and I take pr...

ASUS MX279H 27" IPS - Refurb

James W., Newegg
30 January 2016
  • Summary: ASUS was a quality brand I have recommended several times but never purchased. I will think twice in the future.
  • Pros: Loved the full screen / narrow bezel / sharp clear HD for about 60 days.
  • Cons: After about 60 days, the screen setup {Auto-Fit} took over after being powered on for 3-10 minutes. The Auto-Fit cycles a few times on its own, then powers off the monitor without notice. Listed locally for $50, maybe someone can fix it.

I own multiple units of this model and the latest version (new features in menu) .. audio is horrible.

Anonymous, Newegg
25 December 2015
  • Summary: I will look into LG monitors. I read another review where the consumer said the speakers sound blown out and I have to agree. I hope Asus isn't selling refurbished units as new. Note: This is not my first purchase of an Asus MX279h.
  • Pros: Good specs, good picture.
  • Cons: The audio sounds terrible compared to my other (4 units) 1.5 year old models. The dialog is extremely low (high frequency issues w/ monitor) and the bass (low end frequency) seems overexagerated. Using the headphone out represent the same issue on power speakers or headphones. Again I own 4 of th...

Very bad quality monitor

Thinh N., Newegg
17 October 2015
  • Summary: I've tried 2 in a row. That's enough. It's a waste of time. I'll buy a new different model after I got a full refund.
  • Pros: looks nice.
  • Cons: This is my second one in a row that I can't have any more patient to try again. The first one with hundreds of dead pixels. This second one with control switch and firmware issue. It arbitrarily flashing on/off by itself. The settings showing, and switch from one setting to another automatically ...

bunche of dead pixels

Thinh N., Newegg
17 October 2015
  • Summary: I've tried the second chance but no better in quality. One way or another the monitor is bad.
  • Pros: looks nice, light weight
  • Cons: Quality is below average. There're bunch of dead pixel flashing red in the middle of the screen. It's not just one or two but 100 or 200. You can tell clearly on the dark background.

non-matching serial numbers

keith p., Newegg
13 October 2015
  • Summary: spend the extra $30 for the new monitor.... it will save you hours of anguish trying to prove that you don't counterfeit Asus monitor boxes for a living.
  • Pros: nice looking monitor if you get one that works... 50/50 chance
  • Cons: serial # on monitors don't match the box... so you are outta luck if you need to exchange or return.

Something is not right

8 October 2015
  • Excerpt: I have purchased LOTS from BH over the years and this is my first returned item. Maybe I got a bad version of it but it was a horrible monitor. It is physically very stylish but it had color banding that got worse when I calibrated it with my Spyder 3 Pro.

A whole row of dead pixels

Thinh N., Newegg
28 September 2015
  • Pros: Just nice for looking!
  • Cons: A whole row of dead pixel flashing red clearly in the middle of the screen but ridiculously passed QA to come to my hands. I can't believe it !

It was a great run, I mean, a very short run.

Anonymous, Newegg
11 August 2015
  • Summary: This monitor is great, but not $250, save up a bit longer and get something that isn't built so poorly.
  • Pros: -Great color -Gorgeous Picture -A lot of great options -Slim, sleek look
  • Cons: So, I've had this monitor for about four months now, and everything was going great, until occasionally playing youtube videos would cause the screen to turn into a jumbled mess of several different colored thin lines that flicker about the screen until I either press every key on my keyboard and...

Dead pixel

Thanh K., Newegg
5 June 2015
  • Summary: Really disappointed, I love the Asus product and I wanted to buy this screen .I think Refurbished products will be repaired, replaced and carefully packaged before being sold for the second time I don't think it was very bad
  • Pros: beautiful design
  • Cons: The second time I used I found two dead pixels on the display .For sure , I use software test dead pixel , I see exactly more than two points dead pixel below the left corner of the screen .
