ASUS MX279H overview

  • 1Description

The MX279H 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor from ASUS is a Full HD IPS display featuring a 1920 x 1080 resolution along with an ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio of 80,000,000:1. The IPS or In Plane Switching technology found within this monitor provides improved color accuracy from nearly all viewing angles, the ability to process high speed signals without data loss and clearer images via an enhanced response time. Along with an enhanced viewing experience, you also benefit from two integrated 3 watt stereo speakers.

The MX279 also comes with Splendid Video Technology offering a variety of viewing modes. Take advantage of six preset modes including sRGB, Scenery, Theater, Standard, Night View, and Game mode. Along with the preset modes, the MX279 includes three skin-tone selection modes, four color temperature modes, and one QuickFit mode all to ensure you can customize this monitor to suit your needs.

Ergonomic Profile
The ASUS MX279H display measures just 17.5mm at its thinnest point. In addition, this MX series monitor also presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with a bezel thickness of 0.8mm.
IPS Technology with 178° Viewing Angles
The M279H features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal and vertical planes.
Reduced Ghosting with Improved Response Time
Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling the voltage levels, resulting in a 5ms response time. As a result, the MX279H provides fluid and clear video playback.
QuickFit Virtual Scale
ASUS includes the QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the MX279H, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.
Enhanced Audio
The MX279H features ASUS SonicMaster technology combining advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in improved true-to-life surround sound reproducing richer more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.
Smoother Output with Bigger Speakers
The MX279 display features 32mm diameter speakers for greater and smoother sound impact with better bass performance. It also offers a resonance chamber of 100cc. The built-in amplifier powers speaker sound reproduction for better performance while using 5W amplifiers per channel along with embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more powerful sound.
Audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower
Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology on MX279H has been developed specifically for compact media products to create improved sound even in confined spaces. With this screen's embedded Class D MobileSound 3 technology you benefit from improved energy efficiency, converting up to 92% of power input to useful audio output.

    ASUS MX279H reviews

    MX279H 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it, but not the best First off, the product design is stunning. The speakers are acceptable but aren't loud enough when jamming out to a song. Volume controls and general menu functions are ok, creative, but not ideal. Display quality is average. I guess I just got used to my Retina display, in comparison it's inferior. Otherwise, it's a great buy for those who want a cinema display for watching movies and surfing the web. Anyone seeking a high end display for design or professional visual work should hold out and buy UHD or 4K. I can't complain, I'm not ecstatic about the product but not disappointed either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as specifiied, no more, no less I, like many others read all the reviews on this monitor, and decided to buy based on specifications as they met my needs. I received my monitor yesterday, read the accompaning documents, plugged it in and turned it on. It is connected to my 2012 Quad core i7 16gb 2.6 fusion drive Mac Mini. Set up was simple, set up sound output, color match RGB on Mac and monitor, set he sound level on the monitor. It took all of 10 minutes from unbox to up and running. No it's not hi res retina display, nor is it speced as one. It clear, bright and at 27 inches is perfect for running Photoshop CC. It is a great qulaity monitor for $ if you want better quality and resolution, spend $ on an Apple Thunderbolt display. It is what is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. SO pumped! Not only am I a graphic and Web Designer, but I'm also very Type-A and researched the heck out of the available 27 inch monitors out there on the market right now. I have a 2011 MacBook Pro 15inch, and wanted an external monitor for my work station.Aside from wanting the additional screen real estate of a 27 inch additional monitor (after getting spoiled by my gf's 27inch iMac), my major requirement for whatever monitor I got was that it had to have incredible sRGB color accuracy for my business (or at least a mode that I can switch to among other options, as this monitor does). So far, this monitor's sRGB mode has been spot-on. I'm very very pleased! And the extra real estate has sped up my work flow / time efficency in a major way.Now I know there are other monitors out there that are even better for graphic design - with double the high definition of this model, and with 99% Adobe RGB on top of sRGB, etc, etc, but this color accuracy is just as spot-on with this one, and I wasn't looking to go up to the up, up, and above $ price range with this purchase (which is where those even-fancier graphic design monitors live).All in all, I'm so pumped. I feel no buyer's remorse on this one, and would certainly recommend it to any of my design friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute best for price. I've been through about 8 different monitors trying to find something that is not a pain to look at. I read a lot of reviews about this one and none of the problems that anyone has had have been an issue for me. In fact, after some tweaking, I've never seen a non-apple monitor come so close to looking like my retina display. I've been using this guy for about 3 weeks now. No regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor I bought this to replace a monitor that was a few years old, and the improvement is very noticeable. I use this monitor primarily for work / photoshop editing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MX279H 27 I was looking for a reasonably priced monitor to replace an Apple Cinema Display. You will be hard pressed to find another 27 display with the build quality and performance for 1/3 the cost of an Apple Display. Using this with a new gen Mac Mini soley for music. The Mac Mini and Asus look great together. On a side note...I have been buying from B&H for many years ( before the net ) This is the most easy to deal with company by far. Great prices and great communication from B&H simply can not be beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good monitor Wish it had a few more options instead of generic presets. It calibrates great anyway. Sharp monitor and cool design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I Expected and More After doing an incredible amount of research across multiple types of monitors, I finally came to the MX279H 27 and was more than pleased with its qualities and features when it arrived. The monitor does not sacrifice quality while it remains a gorgeous display, aesthetically pleasing and elegant. One notable shortcoming is the audio. I would expect much better results from a collaboration with Bang & Olufsen. However, I do not mind much because I already have a separate speaker system in place that I always intended on using over the speakers included with the monitor.
