ASUS VG278H

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: The Asus VG278H has great 3D performance and a fast refresh rate, but is just a bit too expensive for what it offers.
  • Pros: The Asus VG278H delivers great 3D performance, a superfast refresh rate, and useful ergonomic options.
  • Cons: The monitor is expensive, given what it offers. Also, accessing the connections can be maddening, there is significant backlight bleeding, and the OSD navigation is clunky and obtrusive.

Reviewing the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Experience Featuring the ASUS VG278H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D Bundle

Futurelooks
19 June 2012
  • Summary: So how does NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 measure up in this new world of 3D perception? Honestly, that will depend on the game and especially, if not more importantly, the 3D monitor you're using. While many of the latest game titles have polished up the 3D effects, it's still the monitor that portrays the image you're hoping to see. And, 3D Vision 2 translates the overall 3D viewing experience thanks to the great new lens design and rechargeable features.
  • Pros: Better 3D Vision 2 design, Rechargeable 50 hour lenses, Larger, better quality lenses, Flicker free powered 3D lenses, Monitor picture is impressive, Vivid colors and strong contrast, Built-in adjustable 3D emitter, Quick 3D transition with 3D Vision 2, Largest 3D monitor available, Best 3D experience and quality for the price
  • Cons: Only monitor on the market to bundle 3D Vision 2

Asus VG278H 3D Vision 2 Monitor Kit Review

eteknix.com
18 June 2012
  • Conclusion: With regards to the new and improved 3D Vision 2 glasses, whilst they are larger than the previous model, they are just as if not a little more comfortable and to me feel a little lighter whilst wearing them. The battery life is very impressive as well, I’m not entirely sure when the glasses were last used, but I still managed to get a fair amount of use out of them before they needed charging.

HEXUS

  • Conclusion: : the ASUS VG278H monitor can provide jaw-droppingly good 3D visuals when allied to the latest iteration of NVIDIA's burgeoning Vision technology. But merely average 2D quality and a high retail price ultimately count against it for an unreserved recommendation.
