    Style Name: HDMI, DisplayPort, VGASize: 27-Inch Verified Purchase
    I've been shopping around for a new monitor for quite some time. I always do my research before making a purchase, and it was no different with this monitor.

    Having been a past ASUS component owner who is impressed with the quality and innovation in their products, I ended up searching around for quite a while only to come back to them.

    I started out with quite a list of features I was looking for in a monitor, and I wasn't sure I could find any monitor that could satisfy the list of essential features. But then I found the VE278Q.

    The monitor has everything I wanted in a top of the line monitor, and it delivers in every way exceptionally well. I'll do a pros and cons list first, then round this out with more info:

    +Excellent color quality - very rich and accurate color when calibrated.
    +Super fast - no ghosting.
    +Even lighting - no backlight bleeding.
    +Wide range of input options, and audio options.
    +Very bright, instant on with no warm up time, and outstanding contrast.
    +Solid range of adjustments, video modes, and display capabilities.
    +Anti-glare coating removes nearly all glare.
    +Price is low for such quality monitor.
    +No dead pixels.
    +Very good max viewing angles with minimal color distortion
    +Decent internal speakers that don't waste visible space if you don't need them.

    Style Name: HDMI, DisplayPort, VGASize: 27-Inch Verified Purchase
    This is the third monitor I have used with my new computer, which was purchased in late November, 2012. I confess, that at best, I'm a simple man and not a techie, so I wanted a good monitor for my simple means. I use Photoshop, read and create a lot of documents, play some games, and watch YouTube, as well as the occasional DVD on this computer. For these uses, this monitor ranks far above what I really need, but at least by having this now, I have some room to grow with as my needs change. Granted, I don't know enough to be as nit picky as some people are, but I can attest to this, based on the other two monitors I tested, this has so far proved to be a solid, superior monitor.

    It has a 2ms response time. This pretty much eliminates blur on fast action videos and games. BUT, you need to have a fast graphics card as well for fast response time.

    The screen is matte / non-glare. This was crucial for my needs.

    My eyesight isn't all that great even with my glasses, but I can say that this monitor is very crisp and clear. I no longer have to hunch forward to read fuzzy lettering.

    It has various inputs, VGA, DVI, HDMI, so this will work with older computers, as well as the newest ones.

    There is an option for the monitor's photo sensor to recognize the light of the room, and adjust itself accordingly. Note: This option has to be selected in the menu.

    This monitor allows for Picture In Picture. I don't have a use for it, but some of you may desire this feature.

    The cords can be routed through the arm of the base which will make everything look more tidy.

    It has a VESA mount, so if you want to attach an upgraded monitor stand or wall mount, you can.

    It arrived in perfect condition.

    I am extremely picky with my monitors. I don't see anything outperforming this monitor at this price point.

    That said, it does have it's flaws...

    The out of box colors on this monitor are HORRIBLE. So bad I was considering sending it back. I spent about 2 hours calibrating to get it right.

    The interface controls for calibration are also quite cumbersome, which is part of the reason why it took me so long to make my adjustments.

    I did, however, successfully tweak the settings and got them close enough to enjoy the use of this monitor.

    There will be some variation between monitors but for anyone curious my settings are as follows...

    Theater Mode

    Brightness 85
    Contrast 85
    Sharpness 81
    Saturation 39

    Color Temp. Normal
    Skin Tone Reddish

    I hope this helps anyone struggling with a similar issue. I would recommend to anyone on a budget, truly a "bang for the buck" product. There are better monitors out there for sure, but easily 2x the price for any noticeable gains in performance.

    I was able to adjust the settings to make it enjoyable.

    Overall Review
    First impression is extremely attractive with a beautiful MATTE screen, zero glare. It did take a little while for me to get it to display my desktop. You have to manually select your input. Once you have selected it powering it on/off brings you back to the last selection. The "Splendid Technology" is exactly what we are familiar with already when it comes to higher end LCD/LED TV's. Allows you to change your viewing mode to scenery/standrad/night/theatre/game/sRGB. So in conclusion, not only do I love this monitor and recomend it, I am going to order 4 more for Eyefinity Portrait Mode.

    24 vs 27
    I was in turmoil over the 24-inch or a 27-inch, The difference in size is literally minimal. The actual viewing area of the 27 is exactly equal to the 24 with the bezel. Considering that the bezel is only 5/16, I personally could not justify the extra 100 bucks. The 27 does have Picture in Picture so that might be a factor for many.

    There is a great deal of discussion about the inputs so here is the truth. The connections you can actually plug into it are. HDMI, VGA, DISPLAYPORT(NOT MINI), 3.5mm audio in, 3.5mm audio out(headphone jack), and the standard three prong removable power cable..... NO DVI and not MINI DISPLAYPORT. The controversay over the DVI is confusing. The monitor does include an HDMI-DVI cable but the HDMI end goes into the monitor.

    Cables included
    Standard power cable(removeable), HDMI to DVI, male to male 3.5 audio cable, and VGA cable.

    This does come with a 2 piece stand, kinda strange because I have never seen one like it. Not better not worse just different.
