5.0 out of 5 stars Asus VK278Q 27inch widescreen 9 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
Nice monitor, nice price at under 300gbp. Mounted on a slim vesa bracket as a second screen for a macbook this monitor is perfect and at a third of the price of the Apple Equivalent is a good value alternative that does not disappoint. The top resolution is full hd which is the main difference as the apple display goes upto a lot more so if you really have to pay for that resolution then this is not the best choice. Otherwise what else do you want for your money. Surrounds are blak gloss shiny and the design aspects of the stand are functional rather beautiful. I'm using the dvi port at he moment as the display port connector in the post so no obvious functionality from the camera yet. An alternative to this one would be the asusvk278q which is 40quid cheaper without the camera. Another option I looked at was the acer slim serie but the price went up and it has no obvious VESA bracket connections.

Very happy with this purchase probably will get a second one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp Vivid Images 5 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
Just upgraded from an Asus VK266H, and found the image to be far superior to any other monitor I have seen, the images are so sharp and vibrant, it's an absolute pleasure to view, no dead pixels either. Initially I found the LED backlighting to be too bright but when the AI sensor is activated it adjusted to the ambient lighting. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent all round Monitor 4 Nov 2011
By Shake
After much deliberation, and scanni9ng the mine filed of todays monitors. I finally settled on this one. After reading reviews on all types I found this to be the most consistant of the lot.
My previous monitor was a Samsung Syncmaster 226BW which was perfect in every way and I was worried if I could find one to match. To test it out I put on Battlefield 3, maxed out the resolutions and set graphics to as high as they could go. The monitor was excellent, no ghosting or blurring. The colours are so rich and definately an improvement from the Samsung. Trying Battlefield BC2 I noticed all the maps looked more in depth and once again the colours have changed the way the map looks for the better.
I was worried about having a 27" and only being able to go to 1080p, but I needn't have worried as it looks amazing all the same

For movies this is excellent too, I watched a couple of HD movies and once again these are crystal clear with vibrant colours. Browsing isn't a problem infact I could probably do it from accross the room!
There are a few presets on the monitor to change the way it displays. Sceneryl,standard,theatre,game and night mode. I tweaked the brightness in most of these dropping it down to 65-70 as it ewas just far too bright out of the box.
All in all I give this monitor 5 stars, I bought it at the start of this week when it was 250, a bargain for sure. Now I see it has gone up to 275 which in todays market is still a great bargain.
Delivery was as usual fast from Amazon, living in the Highlands it arrived within 2 days!
Anyone thinking of a 27" should definately consider this if the price stays under the 300 mark.
You'd be hard pushed to find a better deal.

*Please note - If you have a newer Asus laptop that has the same camera built in as this monitor does they share the same driver and you will not be able to utilize the camera on the monitor without extensive tech support contact. You are able to switch the speaker output quite easily via the control panel but not the camera. A Pain!

I purchase a lot of computer products, both online (primarily through Amazon or Costco)and at retail stores. That being said, I truly appreciate when I get fantastic customer service and conversely I abhor poor customer service.
The monitor had a dead pixel right in the center of the screen about 20cm down from the top. The monitor was so lovely that I almost kept it regardless of the defect. During computer use it was not overly noticeable but during video playback it was annoying. I have several Asus monitors as well as computers and this is the first problem I have ever had with any of their products. FYI, Asus has an international warrenty where most brands do not. I have offices in the US and the UK and travel between the two so I prefer to buy Asus because I have not had any issues up until now and they cover the products they sell anywhere in the world.

This was purchased from Bora Computer (Germany) through Amazon UK. It was ordered on Dec 21 and it arrived Dec 24. Amazing shipping time especially when you factor in the holiday shipping clogs. I contacted Bora Computer via email and they issued a return authorization straight away. They also said they would refund the return shipping costs. They refunded the initial amount as well as the return shipping (in separate transactions). I had to pick up another Monitor from Curry's as I need the monitor for work but I will order from Bora again.

I ordered this monitor on Thursday and it arrived on Monday. It is huge :P It came with all the cables needed, so it was very easy for me to plug it to my desktop. the colors are vibrant and great. The monitor is quite heavy but it is exquisite :)The speakers are great and save me a lot of space on the desk. I love this monitor. :)
