ASUS VK278Q overview

  • 1Description

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.

    ASUS VK278Q reviews

    VK278Q 27" Widescreen LCD Computer Monitor is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value! Using this with a Macbook Pro, with DVI output. Excellent resolution for text documents, much better than the previous 24 monitor. The price is significantly less than an Apple monitor, something I can't afford. At this size I am able to get nearly three pages of text on the screen, which is awfully convenient. The only wish would be to broaden the base and allow the screen to rise off the base another 2 inches. Tis would produce a much better viewing height and allow me to not use a 2 inch thick book as a base.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for professional use I am a professional video and photo editor. The specs on this monitor looked decent, so I took a gamble. It would be a good (not great) monitor for nonprofessionals. I calibrated and still could not manage a decent color. The whites are not pure and the blacks crush. The viewing angle is adjustable and they do include a wire for hooking it up to both a PC and Mac (I used a Mac Pro). It was a very light monitor. Oh, and sharpness was not great. You get what you pay for.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware Beware of this monitor and beware of Asus. I bought my VK278Q in October 2011; here it is May 2012 and it's never worked right. Maddeningly, HDMI and DisplayPort video and sound blink off and on at random. I tried to be patient but I can't put up with it anymore. Asus customer service was worthless; trying to return it to Asus for repair or replacement was a nightmare. I had to buy a replacement monitor from a reputable manufacturer, so I wasted over $on an Asus monitor that's useless. I'm sorry I couldn't rate it less than one star; zero would've been too high.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect monitor for in the booth Love this low-heat LED monitor - for the price it cannot be beat, with a built-in cam to boot. Connected to my Mac Mini and UA Apollo Twin interface from behind the booth wall, this gives me a great big screen to use in the booth during recording and editing. For the price, the functionality and quality cannot be beat. Highly recommend if this fits your situation. Ordered Thursday, standard shipping (free!) and arrived Friday!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Amazing I brought it from The USA because I couldn't find any other at least similar in South America, and the risk wasn't worthless, it works amazing with my MacBook Air...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Largest Monitor with integrated camera I could find I bought 9 of these monitors for my office because they were one of only two 27-Inch monitors with an integraded camera. (the other was the Acer 272HUL which costs three tiems as much) This monitor also has integraded speakers. I wanted large screens for my people but I didn't want to have to buy separate cameras and have to sit them on top of the monitors. Skype for Business is used on a daily basis nowadays so a camera is now an essential part of a workstation. The camera itself can be adjusted without having to adjust the whole monitor (or yourself). The camera also has a self-centering feature. It will automatically pan to put a person or persons in the center of the frame. - Very cool. Another great feature is the array of video connections. You don't have to buy yet another cable to connect to this monitor. DP, DVI, HDMI, VGA - use whatever cable is already hooked up to your computer. I didn't give it five stars because some of my people complained about not being able to adjust the height of the Monitor. Other than that, I'm quite satisfied with this monitor.
