went with this because of the thin bezel and read nothing but great things about this monitor.

Nice sleek looking screen. The borders on it were done nicely. The stand is a little hard to set up at first if you dont know what you are doing(aka me). Besides that the IPS makes it look incredibly clean.

This monitor has a very good picture out of the box. The color are great. I don't play game, so i can not comment on that. I compare this monitor with the monitor Benq GW2760HS side by side playing an animation movie(Tinkerbell). The Asus MX279H has an ips panel and the Benq GW2760HS has an A-MVA panel. When i compare side by side, the ASUS was set to 'theater' mode and the BenQ was set to 'cinema' mode.The monitor Asus has darker color (more rich) and the Benq has more vivid color (brighter). Both monitor make a very good job with animation movies and i think they will be good choice for gaming. The price on the monitor Asus is too high here in Canada. In the USA the monitor is sold for 250$, here in Canada, it's more than 350$. I can not understand the price difference. The speakers are too weak and muffled. My laptop has better speakers.

Honestly the price I got at the time ($235) seemed like a little much considering you could get an AOC which had a 2ms response time for nearly $100 less, however, I unboxed it, set it up, and IMMEDIATELY fell in complete love with it. You don't even need two screens with this monitor, one does the job perfectly. The base is elegant, the back is gloss, the screen itself is anti glare and it's 27" with an 80,000,000:1 contrast ratio. I will never question ASUS again.

I bought this refurbished for 160 at newegg. Colors look great and the integrated speakers are surprisingly loud, theres some light bleeding out from edges that you really notice when the screen is black but nothing too serious.

Wanted a monitor with a small bezel and this is pretty much perfect. very sharp colour, downside i found is that sometimes i brush the touch button when switching on, and if you put alignment grid on your going to spend hours trying to figure out how to remove it but other then that really nice monitor, Love it's disk stand

I've had this for a bit, will be buying a second, it runs smooth, turns on quick, and is gorgeous. Works perfect and am happy

I bought this monitor as I do gaming and web design ect... so I needed a monitor that could do accurate colour reproduction but wouldn't be too slow for gaming and this monitor is excellent for both. Even the built in speakers on this monitor are actually worth using if you haven't got room for separate speaks as they are very good for monitor speakers.

The picture quality is good and the sound is not bad at all even for a monitor
