Summary: Overall, its a nice looking Monitor. I really like the thinn bezel, but unfortunately, the bezel is wider at the bottom making this monitor horrible for surround gaming...besides this MAJOR flaw, the monitor is great if you are only using one.
Pros: Nice looking monitor...thats about it.
Cons: Bezel is wider on the bottom so you cannot use this monitor in surround unless you want a huge gap between your monitors...why would Asus not think of this flaw...
Some issues...not sure if it's just a random issue or not

Summary: I thought maybe it was just random, and then I Googled it, and there is someone on YouTube with the issue actually on video for this exact monitor (just search YouTube for "MX279H red grid").
Pros: Beautiful looking displace. I replaced my iMac and this is what I chose to at least make a suitable replacement aesthetic wise. Looks great, love the anti-glare coating.
Cons: Something I noticed as soon as I took it out of the box, is that in the bottom middle (on the screen, above where the ASUS logo is positioned), is a grid of red dots. I assume this is a result of some light source behind the screen, or something, as it is quite uniform. It's a half-circle, where the rounded edge is above the bezel.
3 stars, not to forget there are better monitors out there.

Summary: /// Pros · Good clean color reproduction & span of contrast · By analyzing text, it holds a good degree of sharpness, but due to max resolution of 1920 x 1080, not really much better than my previous 27" LCD Monitor at about £200. · Styling has certainly been a key factor for this monitor. · I'm not a massive game player, but fast moving visuals seem responsive enough. · Brightness levels is satisfactory.
Summary: When I chose this monitor, I was looking for something that could double up as a monitor for working on during the day, and to use a second TV or Gaming screen at night. I also wanted a premium screen that was good for photo editing. I chose well for the entertainment side of things - its great for watching movies, TV and playing games. Its also great for viewing and editing photos. Contrast, colours etc all brilliant.
Conclusion: ''Større er bedre'' - ikke i dette tilfelle. Denne skjermen skårer bra på kontrastnivå, lysstyrke, og godt svartnivå, i følge flere tester på nett. Sånn reint teknisk stemmer nok dette veldig bra. Problemet blir at alle disse fine verdiene som skjermen kan vise til forsvinner i den lave oppløsningen. 27'' skjerm med 1080p gir rett å slett kornete bilde. I tillegg blir ting som ghosting (forsinkelse av bilde) veldig tydelig på en så stor skjerm.
Summary: Monitor stilisticamente bellissimo. Audio incorporato deludente. Problemi nell'agganciare alcune risoluzioni. Problematico nella gestione del secondo ingresso HDMI. Sistema gestione menu tremendamente macchinoso. Ottimi colori.
Summary: Als ich den Monitor bekam war ich begeistert- wunderschön und kein Pixelfehler. Backlight Bleeding links unten war wahrzunehmen, aber das störte mich überhaupt nicht, nicht mal beim Film schauen. Leider gingen aber nach 4 Tagen die Touch-Tasten nicht mehr, einen Tag später ließ er sich auch nicht mehr per Stromkabel einschalten bzw. nur bei jedem 10. Versuch. Also ein Wackelkontakt. Nach ein paar Tagen kam von amazon das Austauschgerät.
