Aesthetically eye pleasing 27 inch monitor that comes with a pair of Bang and Olufsen ICEpower speakers, the ASUS MX279H is a badass on the desk. We enjoyed the ASUS MX279H throughout these few weeks and we find that most of the features offered will benefit users more as a workstation display...

    Good overall build quality, Stylish design, Easy to setup, Lots of color preset for various viewing purposes, QuickFit feature for quick and easy document and photo display, Impressive sound quality from the built-in Bang and Olufsen ICEpower speakers

  • -

    Glossy are more prone to scratches and fingerprints that will ruin the overall appearance, Enabling Trace Free feature will ruin the color of most games, Despite of having 2 HDMI ports, it doesn't comes with even a single piece of HDMI cable

Neverending beauty - the advertising slogan for MX279H. In the development of the monitor, high value was placed on the appearance. Inspired by the look of a sundial, ASUS created a precision design that has a convincing elegance in every aspect.

  • +

    good processing quality, thin frame around the panel, stable, 2x HDMI port with additional HDMI-to-DVI adapter, high color fastness, low input lag

  • -

    lack of ergonomic functions, small amount of settings in the OSD, relatively low brightness, low contrast ratio

The ASUS MX279H is an outstanding monitor, that much is clear. It has a stylish design and quality materials, giving it a deluxe feel. That is likely the reason for the relatively high price.

11 May 2013

The ASUS MX279H is certainly one sexy display, and it showcased some of the most brilliant reproduction seen at a very affordable price tag. It would have been nicer to have a bit more screen real estate squeezed into the 27” display, but this isn’t a total loss.

As ASUS continues to branch out into the sexier world of phones, tablets and hybrid PCs, there is still a place on computer store shelves the good old stand alone PC monitor. Perhaps aware that this isn't the most desirable vertical it is in, ASUS tries to spruce up the MX279 with splash of design.

We’d prefer a higher maximum resolution, but this is a beautifully designed monitor with great image quality

I love this Monitor. I will admit that upon initial turn on I did not like it. Coming from 23-24" LED screens @ 1920x1080, it was a total shock as far as text size. When I first turned it on I thought the resolution was off at like 1024X768 or something.

  • +

    3 year warranty, awesome sturdy base, outstanding colors for gaming, dual HDMi + comes with an HDMi to DVi cord, looks awesome when its off, frameless design.

    getting used to the menu buttons took a few minutes

I'd spend a little more on the non-refurb model, and make sure you get insurance on your monitor if/when you have to send it back. Not happy I have to mess with warranty work a 2nd time.

    Sleek looking monitor, great picture, great features

  • -

    This one has/had issues where it acted like the front panel buttons would randomly be pressed. I'd be playing a game and the picture resize menu would pop up, or the monitor would just turn off. Sent back for RMA, and they shipped me back a monitor with the upper left corner cracked!

After investigating reviews of monitors for graphic designers, I settled on this one. I was wowed by the resolution and clarity and am 100% pleased. Beautiful color and the added surprise of built in speakers at a very affordable price.

29 July 2017

I bought this as a gift for one of my fellow gamers. The quality is beautiful, and the design is aesthetically pleasing. It works well in both a well lit room and complete darkness.

this monitor has a very good picture out of the box. The color are great. I don't play game, so i can not comment on that. I compare this monitor with the monitor Benq GW2760HS side by side playing an animation movie(Tinkerbell).

Received the display and right out of the box was a good performer with good quality color tones. I do photography as well so i needed a monitor that gives me good natural looking skin tones and this unit was right on.

This monitor is like a TV screen! Big and beautiful. Its graphics display capabilities are enormous and, although I've only had it a few weeks, the settings are seemingly endless. It's tailored to your specific preferences and enjoyment, and it's beautiful to behold. VERY satisfied.

17 June 2015

I have two of these monitors and they work great. Fantastic picture, I have a set of speakers so I can't review the built in speakers since I have never used them. The only detail that was left out is there is no Vesa mount holes, so if your looking for something with them you will need to keep...

9 May 2015

I bought this monitor because I do a lot of photographic editing and was finding my old 22 inch HP monitor hard to work with and one or two pixels had blown. Dabs delivered the MX279H earlier than expected (no complaints there).
