SonicMaster MX279H 27" 1920x1080 IPS Widescreen Ultra Slim Bezel LED Monitor - Black with Bang

The Asus MX Designo LED range have an impressive array of features such as frameless and ultra-slim design along with Bang & Olufsen IcePower speakers. The result is an immersive gaming experience with fast response time, incredible contrast with practically a frameless design along with superb quality speakers. Making the MX range ideal for both gamers and those who enjoy watching movies and listening to music on their computers.

Beauty Beyond Boundaries
Inspired by millennia of artistic legacy, the new Designo MX Series sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design. The MX279H features an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ technology for incredible visuals. In addition, built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers immersive premium audio performance. The 2012 Good Design Award-winning ultra-slim and ergonomic design can be tilted to provide you highly comfortable viewing experiences, while dual HDMI offers extensive connectivity options.

Subtle & elegant design
Incredibly subtle but sophisticated
ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with MX279H measuring just 17.5mm at its thinnest point– thereby minimizing desk space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.

Vivid, lifelike visuals
The latest IPS technology with 178° wide-view angles
Designo MX279H 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 to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved color accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.

Built tough and gamer-centric comfortable
Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX279H provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion during gameplay.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design
ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals
With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279H augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.

ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals
QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get
ASUS includes its exclusive 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.

Great Monitors, Very Highly recommended

Hi Everyone. I use 2 of these great monitors, wired through a Matrox DualHead2Go adapter. This creates a single screen of 3850 x 1200. I use this for flight simulations, work and gaming. The colours are amazing and the monitors are terrific.


Only had this a week.

Only had this a week or so but the Colours are great, and in truth the on off touch button is fantastic. The lightest touch is needed and as such I cant see it ever going wrong. ( sorry broke my power on button many moons ago on my old Viewsonic 19


Looks like a quality Screen.

It could be unfair to review this Monitor so soon after getting it. It was well packaged and a doddle to set up. Looks fantastic on the desk. Coming from my eight year old Viewsonic LCD it


A monitor that really is all singing all

A monitor that really stands above the rest, full 1080p with utterly amazing contrast and colours that tickle the retinas, this is a monitor that should if anything cost more! The built in speakers are very good if you don't already have half decent speakers, but they still wont beat a set of external speakers.

The aluminium build really pushes this into the upper class and leaves your desk looking clean, minimalist and sharp. There's plenty of connections for an average PC set-up and the fact that the buttons are touch sensitive is a nice "touch".

There is no bezel as such, or rather there is no plastic clinging on the external edge of the screen, but there is a black 1cm rim, the screen is simply held from the underside. This gives the screen a nice edge to edge look when turned off and is still an impressive edge to edge effort when turned on.

Great service from OCUK who texted and emailed me the day after ordering to tell the me hour it would turn up, which it did!



WOW cant belive how great this screen really is. Pc games look great and so does the Xbox 360


Pixel Puuurrfect ^^

Got the monitor this morning, Plugged it in and it was worth the price, 1080p at 27" is actually pretty damn good, Played a few games and the picture is pefect.
All in all this is one awesome monitor.

And as usual great service from OCUK :)
