        Comments about ASUS VE278H 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor:

        We needed a monitor that -
        is large enough,
        has sharp and bright display,
        has decent built in speakers,
        connects via HDMI to our 15 inch laptop.
        This Asus monitor has all of the above. Plus B&H has competitive pricing, excellent customer service, and super knowledgeable tech support.

              No dead pixels. Many of Asus other monitor models had reviews that warned of a wobbly stand so I was concerned about that when I ordered it and am happy to say the stand is fine. I am a casual user and play non first person shooter games. I couldn't ask for anything more in a monitor.

                      Bought this to use with my laptop for trading stocks. Big and bright with a nice sharp picture. I plan on mounting it at some point, but currently just using the basic stand that came with it. Using HDMI connection and haven't had any problems - video and sound both worked just by making the single connection. Speakers aren't that great, but work fine for alerts and such. Kids could pop a movie on and wouldn't have an issue with the sound.

                        I'm impressed withe the response time of this monitor and of course the quality. I play video games on this monitor and noticed the response is a lot faster than my previous monitor.

                          I use these in my accounting practice. For my self and the other accountant we have them side by side, one horizontally and one vertically. The fifth one was an upgrade for my admin person also vertically. The size of the monitor allows me to have two full size pdfs on the horizontal screen while working in my tax software on the vertical screen. This allows me to be much more efficient than before.If you're going to be using them for much more than that, however, you'll probably need to look at upgrading your graphics card.

                            I use this product daily, and it takes the place of a smaller and older Viewsonic.

                            It gets 4 stars because I couldn't look at it initially as it was eye searing bright. Now that I've had a chance to check around on sites and get some calibration figures, it comes up very well - crisp, sharp, really excellent.

                              I bought this monitor mainly for photo editing. It is very clear and crisp, and resolution is fantastic.

                              My only grip so far is that when you run it in color correction mode, you can't adjust brightness and contrast. It's way on the bright side for me, and that's kind of a bummer since I bought it to edit photos on.

                              Other than that, it's great and for the price it's hard to beat.

                              I like the size, collars and appearance.
                              I am not using speakers.
                              I wish it would come with adjustable stand.

                                      Surprisingly excellent quality, but look out for issue with ATI graphics cards. You need to uninstall ATI Control Center and manually uninstall all instances in prog files etc. before re installing and adjusting screen refresh rate to have it fill the large screen.
