Looks good at first, then it's downhill from there.

James S., Newegg
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I've been buying Asus products since the 90s. Having mainly used their motherboards, I've not had many issues with any of their products which is why I keep coming back. The ASUS VG278HE monitor however appears to be a lemon.
  • Pros: Large Screen. Height Adjustable. 144/120hz.
  • Cons: Not Pivot Adjustable like the VG248QE, or competing Benq monitors. 2ms response time is alright, but 1ms would be better. Monitor is prone to having the menu buttons break, and become unusable. Mine was acting up the first day I got it, and has now become next to useless. It has trouble detecting...

Fast one

David N., Newegg
19 March 2015
  • Summary: Would change my 1 star to 5 had they completed the deal!
  • Pros: Really great monitor, beautiful, big and fast!
  • Cons: Came with a bright dot! Contacted ASUS and I was promised a replacement many months ago. After speaking with the ASUS rep Jolene she said they would have one sent as soon as it was available and would I give them a positive review. Of course I did but never received the replacement monitor! Very ...

Know this about ASUS's warranty!!!

David E., Newegg
21 April 2014
  • Pros: I purchased a VG278H in Sept., 2013 and while it isn't a VG278HE, you should be aware of ASUS's bogus claim about rapid RMA replacement and "worry free" products. In Feb., 2014, my VG278H started to go black for two seconds and then come back on again at random times during use. No problem, I tho...
  • Cons: Inadequate warranty service

Terrible For Gaming / Terrible Colors

Arthur Wilkinson, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I just purchased this monitor, and installed it yesterday. The colors are way off. Everything is too blue and I can't get it to look good with any of the presets, or by adjusting the color settings manually. The picture on this monitor is darker than my old ASUS VE247H, but it hurts my eyes more.

DEAD PIXEL!

Newton C., Newegg
5 December 2013
  • Summary: DEAD PIXEL! Now I have to return it and hopefully the replacement will not have dead pixels, since I am paying for a brand new monitor. I shall have a brand new screen without dead pixels though.
  • Pros: There are no Pros when you buy a brand new monitor and it comes with a DEAD PIXEL right in the middle of it.
  • Cons: Brand New Monitor came with a DEAD PIXEL right in the middle of the screen and it is unacceptable. My other monitor a Samsung 950D does not have dead pixels and is still working with perfection after two years.
