4.0 out of 5 stars Good monitor, Crappy Stand, September 23, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Asus VE276Q 27-Inch Full-HD LCD Monitor with Integrated Speakers (Personal Computers)
Apparently everything in this coveted 27 inch range skimps on the stand to save money.
As for this monitor, it has a lot of inputs, good response time and looks great. I've heard a few complaints online for the input switching etc. But for a nice monitor with no frills that's gaming worthy, it's pretty great.

Good color, easy on the eyes.

My only complaint is that it's very low to the base and there's no way to raise it. It only tilts and it's a bitch to tilt, you can barely tilt it if you want to and it's simply TOO low on my desk I have to look down at it, which looks a little weird viewing angle-wise. So prepare to prop this up on a book or something. If you have an elevated spot for the monitor it could be perfect.

This one seemed better than a lot of the other 27 inch monitors, which also get bashed for their crappy stands, but besides that, nothing to complain about so far, I've had it a few months with no issues.

it's been a while but I don't think it did - most monitors don't.

Why can't you place books under your monitor?

I have mine VESA-mounted on an OMNI articulated wall mount; for me, its the perfect solution.
