ASUS MG278Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • Picture and colors are amazing!! You wont be disappointed.
  • The color is far superior on this, the thing that stood out to me how much better the blood on CS GO looks
  • Colors, contrast and viewing are great.
  • Getting this monitor was best choice of upgrade from 1080p, fast and colorful.
  • Colors are over exaggerated + color bleeding around objects.

What customers say about "Features"
 
ASUS MG278Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • My favourite feature is the highly adjustable stand that it comes on - it's very easy to reposition and raise/lower.
  • A nice feature with this monitor is the height adjustment which many lack nowadays.
  • Cool built in gaming features (countdown timer, fps and cross hair).
  • The also has an ergonomically-designed with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position.
  • POOR quality speakers and AUX output.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
 
ASUS MG278Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • It does come well packaged with hdmi, displayport and usb cables.
  • It nice to see a displayport cable in the box (also a HDMI cable)
  • I tried using a different displayport, a different display cable, then scrapped DP and used DVI and then finally moving onto HDMI and found that the issue occurred with each one
  • The power cable is a european 2 pin type, so you'll need an adaptor or an alternate power cable from an old monitor or PC.
