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.
