The high resolution MG278Q 27" 16:9 TN Gaming Monitor from ASUS features a 2560 x 1440 resolution complete with a 144 Hz refresh rate to virtually eliminate ghosting and blur when gaming. Accompanying the enhanced refresh rate is AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync technology, which further streamlines the frame rate by giving AMD APUs and GPUs complete control of the update rate within the MG278Q Gaming Monitor. Other visual improvements found within this display include Ultra-Low Blue Light, Flicker-Free technology, GamePlus, and GameVisual technologies.

The 27" MG278Q comes equipped with a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel, a 350 cd/m² brightness rating, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and a 1 ms response time. You can choose from three different skin selection modes, four color temperature modes, and 6 GameVisual modes allowing you to tweak the screen to suit the content being viewed. This monitor also comes equipped with two 2W stereo speakers for a complete multimedia experience. Whether viewing the display on the stand or on a VESA compatible wall mount you can see it from nearly any perspective as it supports 170° horizontal and 160° vertical viewing angles.

NVIDIA G-Sync

While this may be an AMD FreeSync monitor, it is also NVIDIA G-Sync compatible with the latest driver update.

Highly Detailed Visuals

The MG278Q features a WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch. You get to enjoy greater image detail and up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays.

Twisted Nematic Technology

The twisted nematic technology display found in the MG278Q gives you enhanced images, 75% NTSC color gamut, a 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio, and wide 170-degree horizontal and 160-degree vertical viewing angles for minimal distortion and color shift so you can share what you see onscreen with those around you.

1 ms Response Time

The MG278Q gaming display features a WQHD panel with a 144 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms fast response time.

144 Hz Refresh Rate

With a 144 Hz refresh rate, fast moving visuals pose no problem for the MG278Q, so you can reduce motion blur and gain the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy, and sports titles. MG278Q features AMD FreeSync technology to virtually eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.

GamePlus Technology

The MG278Q features the ASUS GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. Select from four different crosshairs to suit your gaming environment, and keep track of spawn and build times with the on-screen timer that can be positioned anywhere along the left edge of the display.

GameVisual Technology

ASUS GameVisual Technology gives you six pre-set display modes tailored to suit different types of scenarios. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.

Advanced Connectivity

The MG278Q has two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort 1.2 port, one dual-link DVI-D port, and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity. A cable management design feature found on the back of the monitor allows you to organize and hide your cables to keep your gaming area tidy.

Ultra-Low Blue Light Technology

The MG278Q also comes with the ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light filters to protect you from harmful blue light. You can easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen through the OSD menu to fulfill your different scenarios.

Flicker-Free Technology

Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimizes instances of eyestrain and other damaging effects when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.

Ergonomic Design

The MG278Q Gaming Monitor features a slim profile and super-narrow bezel making it suited for almost seamless multi-display setups. The MG278Q also has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position. A quick-release design lets you separate the monitor from its stand so it can be VESA wall-mounted.

question

What's the weight of the monitor without the stand?(the manufacturer only provides the weight WITH stand which is 7.65kg)Thanks
Asked by: Aviel
Unfortunately, the manufacture doesn't specify the monitors weight without the stand. Sorry for any inconvenience. If this is in regards to mounting the monitor, the manufacture requires you to use only the UL Listed Wall Mount Bracket with minimum weight/load 28.8 kg (Screw size: M4 x 10 mm).
