The VK278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Monitor from ASUS is a large-screen computer monitor with a wealth of input ports and a built-in webcam! The webcam is capable of 2.0 megapixel video capture and is rotatable. Since its plug-and-play, just connect a USB cable from your computer to this monitor's USB port to start capturing video. Beyond the webcam, you can connect up the monitor 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.

                Comments about ASUS VK278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Monitor:

                Beware of this monitor and beware of Asus. I bought my VK278Q in October 2011; here it is May 2012 and it's never worked right. Maddeningly, HDMI and DisplayPort video and sound blink off and on at random. I tried to be patient but I can't put up with it anymore. Asus customer service was worthless; trying to return it to Asus for repair or replacement was a nightmare. I had to buy a replacement monitor from a reputable manufacturer, so I wasted over [$]on an Asus monitor that's useless. I'm sorry I couldn't rate it less than one star; zero would've been too high.

                      I am a professional video and photo editor. The specs on this monitor looked decent, so I took a gamble. It would be a good (not great) monitor for nonprofessionals. I calibrated and still could not manage a decent color. The whites are not pure and the blacks crush. The viewing angle is adjustable and they do include a wire for hooking it up to both a PC and Mac (I used a Mac Pro). It was a very light monitor. Oh, and sharpness was not great. You get what you pay for.

                      Using this with a Macbook Pro, with DVI output. Excellent resolution for text documents, much better than the previous 24" monitor. The price is significantly less than an Apple monitor, something I can't afford. At this size I am able to get nearly three pages of text on the screen, which is awfully convenient.

                      The only wish would be to broaden the base and allow the screen to rise off the base another 2 inches. Tis would produce a much better viewing height and allow me to not use a 2 inch thick book as a base.
