    ASUS MX27AQ reviews

    Designo MX27AQ 27" 16:9 WQHD IPS Monitor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
    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 Better than what I expected Super crisp images......nice slim design.....came with the cables needed......not bad for the price sine B&H photo there's no sales tax which really help....button control are better than the MX27H since it not the touch one but physical press on it....there no bad thing wrong with it so far....plug and play easy setup.....speaker are great sound pretty nice and clear not that loud but just right enough to game or watch movie in a room.....everything else is superb.

    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 Great looking photo editing monitor I bought this monitor greater screen space and better color reproduction compared to my old low end Samsung. I haven't had a chance to spend much time on Adobe Lightroom and printing photos so I can' truly speak to the color, but I can tell you it looks great. The small bezel and high resolution is great. I wouldn't spend the extra money on a 4K monitor as I don't think it would buy you much for photo editing with a screen this size. I like the different viewing modes such as "darkroom" which makes it easy on your eyes when there isn't much background light. I've also hooked up an Xbox One to the second HDMI port for the occasional game play and it's perfectly fine for a casual gamer. Overall no regrets on this buy.

    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 4 out of 5 by from We love this monitor We have 3 pairs of these monitors that have been running in a work environment for 9 months with no issues. Out of the box color and brightness settings have been consistent across all monitors. Cons: screen controls could be better and no VESA mount. Would have given them 4 1/2 stars if I could.
