    ASUS MX27AQ reviews

    Designo MX27AQ 27" 16:9 WQHD IPS Monitor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful monitor Only ever used a 1080p monitor so I was excited for the upgrade to 1440p. Ordering from B&H website was easy, the price was good, and the shipping was quick (and free!). From the first time I turned it on I was totally satisfied with my purchase. The screen is big, bright, and the colors vibrant. Everything looks sharper and clearer compared to 1080p and you have a lot more screen real estate on the desktop. The speakers are very nice for monitor speakers, nothing amazing but they are great for what they are. Overall very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend ordering from B&H photo if you are shopping for a monitor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Design but... Here's the thing. If you want an IPS monitor with decent refresh rate and looks good, this is it. It does not have deep blacks and there is some some light bleed which you just can't avoid at this price point. once you get this thing adjusted it does have a very vibrant picture. Bottom line, I would not buy this monitor again. If you are like me and like to dabble in a bit of everything this i the cheapest option and it is not a bad option. It looks good on your desk, ASUS put a lot of attention to quality into the aesthetics. My chief complaint is the brightness of the LCD. It is disturbing on book but does not translate in usage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Screen for an Apple Mac Mini I was looking to upgrade my current 24 Dell monitor that I am using with my mac mini and was considering a 4K until I realized that it would only function at 30Hz. That lead me to look at WQHD monitors and my research found this monitor to have the best picture, price, and sound. As good as 4K as far as I am concerned. The only shortcoming was that it does not have additional usb connections, so if this is important than you should consider a different monitor. Overall pleased with the quality of the monitor, shipping was fast and free, and as always it is a pleasure dealing with B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor, great value The product design of this monitor is gorgeous before you ever turn it on a nearly borderless edge. The image quality is amazing as well. I use this for graphic design on a Mac Pro. Had to buy a separate, affordable, cable to run with the Mac. The only downside to this connection is I cannot take advantage of the Asus' B&O speakers. There's no real set-up to this monitor, it's pretty much plug-and-play. But there are some adjustments that you can make, and unfortunately Asus doesn't ship a user manual or CD with the display. It's a bit difficult to find the documentation online. All in all, this is an excellent display, that specs better than Apple's monitor, for a fraction of the Apple's price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor! I am an amateur photographer and do quite a bit of photo editing.� I also on occasion watch sports and movies on my pc as well as do some office work at home. Have had this monitor for a couple of weeks now.� For my purposes, this is the perfect monitor.� No complaints at all.� It is good looking and my copy has no dead pixel nor bleeding at all.� The speakers are not the greatest, but they deliver good enough sound when I am just casually watching movies or some YouTube videos, etc.� The 27-inch size also hits a sweet spot for not being too small or too big, in my opinion. Honestly, I think this is still the best monitor out on the market that money can buy for a 27-inch WQHD.� And I am saying this after doing quite a lot research.� Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Screen Size for Multitasking Tasks I have purchased this monitor to replace my 24 monitor. Connected to the thunderbolt port on the back of my mac mini (late 2012), this monitor provides much needed screen space to support multitasking activities that I have to perform everyday for my software development work. At its maximum resolution of 2560 x 10440, pictures or videos are absolutely clear and very pleasing to the eyes. I was afraid the texts might be hard to view at this resolution, but it turns out to be just right, and you can alway adjust the text size as needed for your viewing pleasure. Controlling the various attributes of the monitor are provided via the buttons located at the lower right corner of the monitor. It is very standard these days for such controls, and they are pretty easy to handle once you've learned how to navigate after a few tries. The audio through the monitor is pretty decent and provides more volume then the mac mini itself. The only thing that I think would have been better is at least for the volume control to be provided as actual physical buttons instead having to go through the control buttons first. Overall, this is a great monitor and is better suited for multitasking tasks and perfect for watching movies too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor Clear monitor with vivid colors. I use my monitor mainly for text, and it works beautifully for that -- with one caveat, which is that for small text, it was necessary for me to shut the VividPixel technology off. Maybe that's a matter of taste, but I was very skeptical of the monitor until I turned off that feature with the built-in menus. Apart from that, the monitor provides a clear picture with true-to-life colors and genuine blacks and whites.
