Great display, awful setup and accessories.

Reid DeProspo, Amazon
1 September 2014
  • Summary: It's a great monitor, but a pain in the ass. The display is amazing and I have not noticed any flickers or dysfunctional pixels. On the other hand, the power input is such an enormous pain, it does not simply plug in and go.

I'm not hugely happy with this monitor

Scott Kimbrough, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm not hugely happy with this monitor. The response times are great, which is important. It's got great real estate. I'm just not terribly happy with the ability to customize the way it looks. I use the Gaming mode preset, but then have fiddled around with the settings.

  • 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.

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.

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"...

User Review

Alexandre_L, NCIX.com
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...
  • 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 se...
  • 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 ...

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

keviny01, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • 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.

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.
