I bought this monitor as an upgrade from a 1600 x 1200 (I think) and I an amazed at the difference in quality.

The colours beautiful and the refresh rate really makes a noticeable difference; I was sceptical about this to begin with and I have never bought a monitor over


Best 3D moniter available

I upgraded from 3 x Asus vg236h 120hz 3D moniters with 3D vision 1 glasses, I bought 3 of these bad boys with 3D vision 2 glasses, And wow what a difference, When playing in 2D the 144hz makes games look super smooth, But nvidia 3D surround is outstanding, I honestly dont know more people dont use 3D moniters, i've tried the oculus rift and i honestly prefer using my setup, Highly reccommend this moniter or better yet 3 of them.


Wow what an Upgrade

Where do i start i have been running an iiyama prolite E2409 HDS 24" now for atleast 4 yrs and i have been rally pleased with it.I decided to try something different and i looked at this monitor Asus VG278HE 27" TRUE 144Hz 3D Widescreen LED Monitor - Black and wow its stunning im running the full 144hz through the supplied DVI-DVI cable and the graphics are stunning.I specifically bought this monitor for gaming and after reading reviews was concerned as people say you should stick with 24" for gaming and its pointless having a monitor with anything over 60hz as you wont even notice it."REALLY YOU WONT EVEN NOTICE IT".I would like to say to all those people out ther who don't think you will notice a difference buy this monitor and then tell me you cannot see a difference. 144hz is beautiful on BF4 the game play feels so much smoother and another thing im running 2 x GTX 580 3GB cards in SLI the graphics on this monitor are amazing it really shows how much you graphics card ca!
n do and it really shows it on this monitor.I would definitely recommend this monitor don't think just buy you wont be dissapointed the 27" is perfect for me gaming has become even more of a pleasure than it already is.Thank you Asus thank you overclockers for your fast delivery service as usual from a happy customer MR H


Excellent Gaming Monitor

I got this to replace my old Dell 2407WFP and, wow, what a difference!

Everything feels really fluid operating at 120/144Hz and Battlefield 3 feels a lot smoother and looks more vibrant. I've got no dead or stuck pixels either.

nVidia 3D works really well and looks great, although bare in mind you'll need to purchase the IR box and glasses seperately unless you spend another


Asus VG278HE

I originally purchased a high resolution IPS panel however it had 2 dead pixels dead center on the screen, OC's gave me a refund and I ordered this screen that I set up last week. simply put this is better than I expected and yes if your have a good system you will notice the difference with the refresh rate in FPS games with good color depth and great response time. Great service from OCs as they managed to deliver it the same day with a last minuet purchase of CPU & Motherboard at this price highly recommended and also 3D ready if required.

The clearest FPS Monitor ever

I will not dwell on specification, i.e. this has the best FPS specification available today 03/02/2012. After tweaking and modifying various settings on this monitor I can confidently say that this is the best gaming monitor to date, ever.

Input Lag is negligible, refresh rates can match even the most needy high end gaming rig, and the colors are very chirpy after some tweaking.

Ultimately it falls down to the unparalleled ability of this monitor to reproduce the "no motion blur" of a CRT at 120Hz. You can use the strobe of the Lightboost technology to decrease the pixel shadow effect completely, in software.

My monitor is my slowest component and it always has been, this is the fastest available.

It easy to configure, easy to modify and has outstanding performance.

In some scenario's you feel untouchable as you pick your enemies head out from a distance with ease.

Asus has a 0 dead/always on pixel return policy, buy with confidence.

Had this monitor for 3 days. Upgraded from a 19 inch belina. Using it for 3D games and movies. Got to say it works well and I am enjoying Nvidia's 3D vision.

The monitor is a little bit on the bright side so you might want to knock it down a little which is easily accessed on the monitor don't need to struggle through settings. I must mention the on board stereo speakers are pretty good. So you gamers that like to use headsets might want to use those speakers outside of games.

The only thing that I can pick at is the base for the monitor has a gloss finish so might need a wipe once every two days to get rid of the dust. But the ergonomics will help to make getting around it easy.

But as you would expect I am pleased with it. Upgrading my PC to take full advantage of what 3D has to offer. It only makes sense.

I have been using this monitor for about two days.

I can't fault it. Colours are great, easy to use menu and the in built speakers are actually good so if you are a gamer that uses a headset and doesn't like to use them outside games these will do for movies and music. But don't expect great sounds it is on par with basic stero speakers. Let alone more room on the desk.

3D works perfect. Been getting caught in the hype and the size of the monitor works great to get pulled into the games and movies.

Worth every penny.
