Summary: I bought this monitor 8 months ago and have been extremely happy with it. It shows a clear picture and the sound coming from the speakers is great as well. This is the first time I purchased an ASUS monitor and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a good quality monitor that's affordable.
Summary: Hooks up to my MacBook Air with no issues, stand is a tad wobbly but most monitors in the ~$200 price range are. Comes with a DVI to HDMI cable, as well as a VGA to VGA cable and a 3.5mm headphone jack cable for speakers. Good buy if you can get it around $200.
Summary: I went to the link: [...] and followed the instructions only to find out there is no rebate to be found on my item. The offer code given to me was ASU-12004 (US) and that did not work. I then proceeded to do an advance search which allows you to look up the retailer (amazon) the date of your order (Mar 26) and model number (ASUS VE278Q). No success. I would like this dealt with. I really enjoy this product and would hate to leave a bad review.
Excerpt: I use this monitor as an extension for a MacBook Air. Setup was easy, and it had no problems getting the signal from the MacBook. It doesn't have height adjustment, but I knew that before purchasing.
Summary: I ended up going back to 24" screens because Full-HD is too coarse for a 27" monitor. You can only shrink text to a certain size before it gets chunky looking and difficult to read. After selecting a readable font size, I found myself moving away from the monitor to reach a comfortable reading distance. So, I bought a couple 24" ones that work much better for me.
Summary: I cannot believe how much I am enjoying this monitor. I thought it would be too large but it is perfect. No longer do I squint while trying to read small print. The contrast is outstanding and I'm only using one of the factory presets. I couldn't be happier. Many thanks to the manufacturer and the seller.
Summary: needed a new monitor to replace one that died, friends had recommended the ASUS brand, that the refresh rate was excellent as well as the build quality. They were right on both accounts, I was worried about the cables, as this uses an HMDI connection, while I bought one, I didn't need to as cables were included with the monitor to connect the DVI out from my PC to the HMDI in on the monitor.
