The VE278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Display from ASUS is large-screen computer monitor with a wealth of input ports. You'll be able to connect it to your computer via VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI. The monitor is capable of displaying 1080p video at native resolution, and can also output audio thanks to integrated stereo speakers.

The display features a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 170°/160° viewing angles, 300cd/m² brightness, and support for 16.7 million colors. It uses an energy-efficient LED backlight, which offers more even lighting than traditional CCFL lamps -- without the need for warm-up time. Its desktop stand supports tilt adjustment, and you have the option of mounting the display to a wall thanks to its standard VESA 100mm mounting pattern. It can also be secured via a standard Kensington security lock.

10,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
The ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio dynamically enhances the display's contrast by adjusting the luminance of the backlight to achieve the darkest black and brightest white -- delivering lifelike images.
2ms Response Time
Quick response time of 2ms (Gray-to-Gray) eliminates ghosting and tracers for more fluid video playback.
Full HD with HDMI
VE278Q leads you to enter a big and spectacular world of colors with support for Full HD 1080p video and an HDMI port.
AI Light for Brightness Optimization
AI Light function enables the VE278Q to automatically adjust to a lower brightness, making your eyes feel more comfortable in dim environments -- all while reducing power consumption by up to 25%.
Rich I/O Ports -- Allow Simultaneous Connections to More Video Devices
Embedded digital HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, enable connection with the most advanced graphic cards and computers. The DisplayPort interface also offers better support of multiple display streams, longer cable connection, and interoperability with other inputs, such as VGA, DVI, and HDMI.
Picture in Picture - Display 2 Different Signals Simultaneously
Need to research on the Internet, but a championship game is about to start on TV? The VE278Q offers PIP (Picture in Picture) function (via hotkey) and has the capability to display images of two different signals at the same time.
Splendid Video Intelligence Technology
The exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology optimizes video performance and image fidelity by enhancing color, brightness, contrast, and sharpness. Six preset video modes (Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB and Standard) can be selected via a hotkey.

    Asus monitors have been simply great. One of the most awesome monitors i've used in a long while. Fell in love with it since the first i got off the b&h shop. Always in need of screen space and tidy desk, I do mostly 3d designs and video and photo editing. Just what I needed, wide, light weight and very affordable. As a desk saver, I use the monitor for both my laptop and desktop. Vga to laptop and dvi to desktop with a quick view switching botton I can switch between my pc's while one is rendering, I work on the other. Its a must have.

    This screen is a great product for the average consumer, however, for the professional it is not as good as other screens on the market. There is a reason for the price.

    Overall it is an ok screen. The gamut presents contrast issues for photo editing.

      I use this monitor as an extension for a MacBook Air. Setup was easy, and it had no problems getting the signal from the MacBook. It doesn't have height adjustment, but I knew that before purchasing.

        Comments about ASUS VE278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Display:

        I have this connected to my wife's 17 inch Macbook Pro via mini display port to display port. I tried HMDI and VGA but both of those seemed to be more prone to interference. (intermittent and subtle vertical roll on the screen) That may reflect the cables and adapters that I was using. The straight cable with no adapter seems to be the least troublesome.

        The resolution and colors are fine for what she uses it for, editing raw images in Lightroom. I have it set at 1090p which is the highest resolution her Macbook can output.

        Delivery was prompt and packing was more than adequate, as expected from B and H.

          I've owned one of these monitors for two years now and used it heavily for gaming. Consistent, crisp and responsive display, various input methods and a truly spacious viewing area make this a go-to choice for monitors in the 27" category.Huge bonus too for Picture in Picture functionality. This is the main reason I again chose this monitor for my most recent build. The person for whom I was building the machine wanted to plug an HDMI from a cable box and watch football while doing computer work at home. This monitor delivered once again.

            This is a great product. We bought it to hookup to a MacBook Pro via HDMI. This is much cheaper than buying a 27" display from Apple and the quality seems to be on par with the Apple Cinema Display. Recommended for those who want a large screen for a lower price. Works great with both Mac and PC, we've bought 2 of them so far for our office!

            This is the best monitor in its price range hands down.

            I liked the fact that it did NOT have SMART TV or equivalent functionality to connect to the internet, which in my view, is a waste of resources and time.

            Picture is clear, sharp and sound is ok. Overall then it is a great monitor for the price to use with a PC an/or Cable/ VideoGames

                              This screen is a great product for the average consumer, however, for the professional it is not as good as other screens on the market. There is a reason for the price.

                              Overall it is an ok screen. The gamut presents contrast issues for photo editing.

                                  This a great computer monitor for billing, I can seen the entire ledger now. On my 17" monitor I was constantly horizontally scrolling to see all of the ledger details.
                                  It is a bright monitor. Easy on the eyes. The speaker capability is adequate for business computer needs.
                                  I have no complaints after using it for one week.

                                    next best thing to 2 screens. we do a lot of photo editing, organizing and redistribution and having a large, bright screen makes life much easier.

                                    Asus monitors have been simply great. One of the most awesome monitors i've used in a long while. Fell in love with it since the first i got off the b&h shop. Always in need of screen space and tidy desk, I do mostly 3d designs and video and photo editing. Just what I needed, wide, light weight and very affordable. As a desk saver, I use the monitor for both my laptop and desktop. Vga to laptop and dvi to desktop with a quick view switching botton I can switch between my pc's while one is rendering, I work on the other. Its a must have.

                                              Comments about ASUS VE278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Display:

                                              I gave it 4 stars because picture quality wise is superb, really bright colors, for an xbox 360 is really works great. The speakers are sub-par but what do you expect, the only grievance i have is that the cable inputs are hard to see and connect because they are hidden behind the monitor really really well, hard to connect and disconnect things, other than that go for it.
