With a virtually frameless design, the MZ27AQ Designo 27" 16:9 IPS Monitor from ASUS offers an enhanced viewing experience without the distraction.

This ASUS monitor features a 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 350 cd/m² brightness rating, and a 5 ms response time to provide a crisp, clear picture with reduced ghosting. Viewers can also take advantage of multiple viewing modes supported by this monitor, including eight SPLENDID Video preset modes, three Skin-Tone selection modes, and four Color Temperature selection modes. QuickFit, Low Blue Light, VividPixel, and EyeCheck modes are also provided to accommodate the content being viewed on the screen.

If that's not enough, this ASUS monitor comes equipped with dual 6W stereo speakers and a 5W subwoofer to offer enhanced audio playback to complete your multimedia viewing experience. These speakers feature ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed by Harman Kardon to provide a wide range of sound with enhanced clarity and rich bass.

The Designo MZ27AQ monitor comes equipped with both HDMI and DisplayPort inputs for easy configuration with a variety of computer setups. Once installed, the monitor can be tilted from -5 to 22 degrees to allow viewers to take full advantage of the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles offered by this IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel.

Slim Profile, Power Audio

The Designo MZ27AQ features a frameless panel and slim-profile design, yet delivers 2.1-channel audio performance with two 6W stereo speakers and an external 5W subwoofer, co-developed with Harman Kardon.

Ultra-Slim, Frameless Design

The Designo MZ27AQ has an ultra-slim profile that measures just 7mm at its thinnest point, and its small footprint takes up minimal desktop space.
