5.0 out of 5 stars No VESA mount!, August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS MX279H 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit LCD Monitor (Personal Computers)
This was an impulse purchase for me. I quickly looked at the star ratings without doing further research and it turns out; there's no VESA mounting options! Oh well... That's my fault for not checking. Otherwise, it's a beautiful monitor. Very thin front to back and a thin bezel. It is lightweight compared to other monitors of the same size and it looks really slick and high tech. Text is easy to read. It has a matte screen; which I mention because it's sibling, the ASUS VG27AH, does not. The only issue I had was that the image I got was smaller than the screen size - I had to go into my Catalyst Control Center (my video card software), and select the overscan option.

Thank you for your comment... was considering getting two of these, but VESA mounts are really important, as I am also planning on getting mounting arms so I can have them a little higher (at eye level)

This is not the monitor's fault. It is something that happens with AMD/ATI graphics cards.

It doesn't matter whose fault it is, the bottom line is a lot of computers have AMD/ATI graphics cards (like mine), and this disconnect should absolutely have been addressed by ASUS (at least in their documentation or FAQ). If it were me, I'd have an insert in the monitor's packaging: red paper with black letters addressing owners of AMD/ATI cards (so they don't sit for weeks pulling out their hair, or worse, upgrade their lower-level card to a higher one -- also from ATI -- and end up with the same result).

For anyone experiencing this issue, or for anyone deciding to buy the monitor (I would... it's gorgeous), the right procedure is to:

1. Open Catalyst
2. Under My Digital Flat Panels -> Scaling Options
3. Drag the picker to 0% Overscan
4. Apply

My brother had this problem on a new PC build and it went away after installing the drivers for his graphics card, he was using a Ge-force card.

No, that should be addressed by the video card manufacturer.
