Not what i thought i was getting for 220+tax and CA epa.

Michael E., Newegg
21 November 2014
  • Summary: I know it its a Refurbished unit so its not going to be prefect. but not sure if it was worth 200. felt like this one should have been like 150-175. So I do feel like I over paid for what I got. Also the box came pretty jacked, but the screen packaging seems to still be in tack.
  • Pros: Big, great display. works good for a Refurbished.
  • Cons: 2 small clusters of dead pixels on the left side of the screen. Not like game breaking. But noticeable if watching a movies or anything more on the dark side. the web cam cover came cracked. The stand wiggles.

HDMI Input Kaput

Mark L., Newegg
29 August 2013
  • Pros: Looks and runs great. I use it for gaming, not color-specific applications. Response time is terrific.
  • Cons: HDMI input just quit working after nearly a year. Didn't move my setup or jiggle any wires. ASUS customer support issued RMA on first phone call (took about 30 minutes overall to hold for chat response and fill out their form). I will update when I get the monitor back.

VK278Q Power Problem

Viraj D., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Summary: Seems strange that an otherwise perfectly working monitor will not power up if you turn it off using the power button.
  • Pros: Awesome monitor, when it is working
  • Cons: If I use the power button on the monitor to turn it off, it will not let me turn it back on. Elsewhere, I found another user had documented the same issue. Apparently, you have to unplug all cables from the monitor and let it sit for 20 minutes or so and then plug it back in and it powers up as i...

Great monitor if not for dead pixels

David M., Newegg
21 March 2013
  • Summary: Pending the replacement monitor and hopefully its lack of dead pixels, this has the potential to be a 5 egg rated piece of equipment.
  • Pros: Crisp, bright display, good webcam, decent speakers. 2ms response time = great for gaming. Very unobtrusive power button glow indicating sleep/power mode. Sturdy stand.
  • Cons: 4 dead pixels out of the box. The webcam software is extremely finicky and not easy to use. Webcam tilt is also somewhat limited.

Great monitor, but...

Dylan Fan, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: no Mac driver for the camera. Use it in dual-monitor setups on both PC and Mac and in every other respect it is one of the better monitors I've used. But it is kind of ridiculous not to provide a driver for the Mac these days.

Bojan S., Newegg

  • Pros: Great color, size, connections.
  • Cons: No Microphone... Really? For 300$ no microphone. ASUS always managed to make a great product and then mess up on an important peice.

Speakers face up

Jonathan H., Newegg
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Just buy a nice monitor, then speakers and webcam separate
  • Pros: Price, Excellent webcam
  • Cons: Speakers are inside the back panel so it sounds like its in a cave. They also point towards ceiling so you have to turn them all the way up to hear and then the sound is awful. My speakers stopped working completely after trying the headphone jack... which also didn't work.

Product description says, "With a built-in 2 MP rotatable webcam, microphone, and speakers" - not true!

JStumbo, Amazon
20 June 2012
  • Summary: I like the monitor but very frustrating to find it does not include a microphone as was in the product description; required another purchase.
