Light bleed

  • Summary: Lots of light bleed. But its nice other than that. For the money its worth it, I'd buy It again.

Great Monitor, but.... Lots of backlight bleeding.

  • Summary: This is a great Monitor with nice colors. I've never seen such a great picture. After having it for a week I notice a lot of backlight bleeding. From the Top bottom and sides. It can ruin dark scenes, but anything else will look great. Games, movies, and anything else you'll use it for. This would be a 5/5 monitor, if it wasn't the amount backlight bleeding.

Great monitor with one tiny exception.

James, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: The monitor is great, and is exactly what I had hoped for. But somehow, despite the fact that I literally have not moved it an inch since I unboxed it, and in no way had bumped into it or done anything to damage it, it somehow already had a dead pixel less than a week after I got it. If it stays at just one, I'll be fine. If the pixels start dying off en masse, I'll be a little bit upset, but I'll wait and see what happens.

One of very few PC monitors certified for 3D Vision 2

keviny01, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want a 27" LCD monitor that supports 3D Vision 2 with Lightboost technology, you will notice there are precious few models to choose from at this point: in fact, only ONE, the ASUS VG278H. A similar model VG278HE is about $100 cheaper, but without 3D glasses. The glasses cost about $100, so you may as well get the VG278H with the glasses included if you don't already have a pair.

Solid 3D monitor - with some warnings

J. Harp, Amazon
23 December 2012
  • Summary: System = Win7x64 using DVI from a GTX470 card. While considering an upgrade from my 2010 LG 27" 60Hz LED, I looked at a cheaper Acer 3D equivalent of this Asus, but Acer's first-gen 3D wasn't worth the risk of dim imaging and/or smaller field-of-view glasses (there are also some "passive 3D" competitors and likewise they aren't as effective as "active-shutter" 3D.

User Review

15 September 2012
  • Summary: Ordered this monitor to replace my thrustworthy VG236h, as I wanted to try bigger (27'') and better(?) (3d vision 2 + 144hz) and the package arrived in perfect condition, no damage whatsoever showing on the box, as usual with ncix products :) For those wondering if you'll see a difference in 2d from 120hz to 144hz, I would put it this way: If you saw a difference between 85hz to 100hz on CRT's, you will most probably notice the difference between 120hz and 144hz (on...
  • Pros: - Great visual improvement over 3d vision 1, there really is a noticeable difference (and I'm still using 1st gen glasses), - 27" is also imo a good improvement for 3d vision as it is more immersive than a 23'' for both games and movies, - Height, tilt and swivel can all be adjusted, - Doesn't seem to be plagued with the backlight (oval in the center of the screen) problem that the 120hz VG278H seemed to have according to some reviews/comments throughout the web
  • Cons: - Contrast level out of the box is awful (up to the point that in dark scenes, the dark colors looked like a "polarized effect", as the darker spots were actually brighter!) and cannot be corrected with the screen control (Was really considering RMA, it is that bad!), - The bezel doesn't seem to be mounted properly on TN panel (as I can easily pass a fingernail in between the bezel and the screen almost all around the bezel, - No games / drivers are currently adapted ...

Not what I expected from Asus

Stephen J. Labuda, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: I'm updating this review because I returned the original 3 monitors and ordered 3 more. The ones I have now are better. There are still some noticeable backlight uniformity problems, but not severe. No buzzing sounds in 3D mode either. These monitors perform well on Lagom LCD monitor tests in standard mode with a contrast of 80 and brighness of 0. Viewing angles could be better for a TN panel, but they are fine. Overall I like the monitors.

almost perfect

emanuell, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • Summary: 3 star, why?Don't get me wrong, Pros, It's an amazing monitor, works perfect with the 3d glasses.astonishing resolution for a 1920x1080p.The con, I was unlucky and got one of those 1 out of 3, where some capacitors come faulty, and after a month use at high brightness levels the monitor goes unresponsive, and then if you reduce the brightness it comes back.So I WOULD RECOMMEND for the lucky shot, buy on a fulfilled amazon seller at least you get full protection if...

Can't get 3D to work

Marc, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Its a nice monitor but I got it for its 3D qualities. I'm having technical difficulties at the moment that I am trying to resolve with Asus. Windows recognises it as a Generic PnP Monitor and there are no drivers. The monitor won't recognise my video card and I can't get 3D to work.

quality product / NVidia 3D Vision 2 remains probematic (exp. 3D ghosting)

ssig, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: (UPDATE) Instead of hammering at you with unnecessary details, here is my quick 'pros & cons'. pros: - very bright - very good colour fidelity (sRGB profile) - NVidia 3D vision 2 glasses battery charge lasts almost infinitely (one almost forgets they need to be charged at all) - supports Blu-Ray 3D - supports DVI-D (+HDCP), HDMI (+HDCP) & VGA - supports raw 3D signal (split screen etc.
