    Excellent 27" monitor!

    I have had a 24" Acer for about 4 years now, and its been a terrific monitor. However, I found this one on sale, and there was only 1 in stock in a 100 mile radius of my location. They didnt have it on display, and I was concerned about the "ice gold" on the bottom panel. Well, I got it home, and set it up, and it looks amazing! The metal face plate isnt really gold, its more of a nickel color like others have indicated. Windows doesnt detect its manufacturer or model number, but my AMD Radeon software correctly identifies it. The blue light options are all really "blue." I have to put it on the lowest setting, otherwise its an extreme blue tint, especially sitting next to my previous monitor which does not have this feature. You have to adjust the gamma and brightness and color settings for things to look proper, but once you do, it looks legit. Text looks fine (was worried about that on a 27" 1080p monitor, but no concerns there) and it plays games without any issues. I am really pleased with this model, especially considering the pre-black Friday deal I got on it.

    My old AOC monitor went out and headed to BB get a replacement. They didn’t have the AOC model I wanted in stock but the sales associated recommended this ASUS monitor. Loved how slim and slick looking it was. Picture quality is excellent with the HDMI connection. Best of all, it stays nice & cool compared to the heat my old one gave off. I’d recommend this one. Please note, only ‘down side’ of this monitor is the inability to tell what each control, or how to work them, does without constantly referring to the user guide. The buttons are not labeled anywhere so you have to remember what each button either does, or refer to your cheat sheet. But once all set up, beautiful picture quality.

    Sleek monitor

    I picked up this monitor as a second display for my laptop. I chose this because of the technical specs, the super thin bezels, and the super thin panel. The overall design looks very sleek. There’s no DisplayPort, but the HDMI connection is sufficient for me. I like that it does not have a glossy display, so there’s never any glare. Other than tilt, there is no other type of adjustment of the display. The speakers are horrible, but I didn’t expect them to be great. It doesn’t matter to me since I use external speakers anyway. If audio on the monitor is important to you, Asus has a similarly spec’d MX279H with Bang & Olufsen audio. I have not heard the audio on that model, but it has to better than the audio on here. However that other model does not have as thin a panel, if it matters.

    I am in love with this monitor. I am so happy that it was on sale the day that we came in to speak with the service team. Our previous monitor was very old, and I knew that any we purchased would be a substantial upgrade in quality, but this takes the cake. I love the size and the quality. I don't know much about computers and tech, but my daughter said that watching Youtube and playing Overwatch was also nice on this monitor. Images are clear and crisp.

    The monitor is great and works well for my needs. Very clear picture, and ultra thin. I mainly use this monitor for Photoshop and the size and display resolution allows me to see detail better than just on my MacBook. The two items that make it drop from 5 stars is the speakers are whimpy, and the monitor does not adjust up and down, nor has the ability to be wall mounted.

    Remarkable picture quality! When I initially started to set the monitor up, you have to rotate that stand behind the monitor. The monitor is so thing and the handle was kind of hard to rotate (I was scared I was gonna crack the monitor in half). Therefore, I was very meticulous in doing so without damaging the monitor. Overall, the monitor is remarkable! Picture quality is great!

    The Asus monitors are great quality for a low price! I got this monitor for my home office. It has HD and split screen capabilities. 27" was what I wanted and I honestly think the only thing keeping the price down was the icicle gold trim. It actually looks like nickel and personally I'm not concerned about keeping up with the latest trend...I need quality!
