I bought the ASUS VE278Q from Amazon over a month ago. I wanted a screen that would make everyday work pleasant and also for watching films.
I also considered the LG E2770V, but could find next to no customer reviews on it, making it a less attractive option. My other option was the Viewsonic VX2753ViewSonic VX2753mh-LED - LCD display - TFT - LED backlight - 27" - widescreen - 1920 x 1080 - 300 cd/m2 - 1200:1 - 30000000:1 (dynamic) - 1 ms - HDMI, VGA - speakers - glossy black
, but I felt the ASUS provided more functionality and is a very difficult all rounder to beat.
My video review was filmed with a standard mobile phone camera, so the quality of the picture is obviously not true to life. However I still wanted to give an idea of the colour depth and look of the screen.
In short, this is a great monitor. I have very little to complain about.
+ Lovely screen size
+ Excellent quality display
+ Blu-ray films look outstanding
+ Very little adjustment needed to default settings for good picture
+ Black screen frame is very neutral without big, bright logos all over the place, allowing you to focus on what's being displayed
+ Power LED is very discrete, a plus when watching films in the dark
+ No dead pixels on my monitor
- Input not automatically selected when connected to the screen - not such a big issue for me as I only use HDMI
- Only 1 HDMI port - 2 would be nice to avoid having to having to access the back of the screen to change cables
- It seems sound cannot be outputted via the HDMI cable (you need to use the separate cable instead). Once again, a minor issue.
- Some bleed at top of my screen but hardly noticeable
Some other reviewers have complained of issues with dead pixels, although I am not sure if this is more prevalent with this model than with any other screen. I think every screen that comes off the production line these days is slightly different, so it's hard to predict if you'll get one with any issues.
