I was first attracted to the MX279H by its exceptionally-elegant design. I use it on a Mac Mini, connected with an HDMI cable. A VGA connection is another option.

The built-in speakers perform much better than anticipated. The sound is shy of excellent, but still surprisingly good and full.

It takes a bit of time to learn how to use the seven control buttons. They are tiny and responsive, facing down along the right side of the bottom part of bezel. You quickly learn to keep your right hand clear of that spot when adjusting the angle of the panel.

So far I'm more than happy with the purchase.

Note that I originally planned to free desk space by replacing both my Asus PA248Q monitor and old speakers with this 27" unit.

The unit is attractive, with minimal bezel. I should note that the cables supplied are too short if your PC is not extremely close to the monitor.

Now, I just wish that I had purchased a second PA248Q instead of this mediocre MX279H(thinking that I could replace my PA248Q and ditch my 10+ year old speakers/sub-woofer once I had sound through the MX279H monitor speakers...mistake.)

Side-by-side, the PA248Q and this unit don't look much different size-wize (which was a big surprise). The colours are not as crisp and the white isn't as white as the PA248Q. Also the resolution should be a bit higher for a monitor this size. Windows straddling both monitors are considerably larger on this unit (perhaps a bonus for my aging eyes). If ditching my PA248Q for this unit, I would also miss the convenient USB 3.0 4port hub. So it is a dual mismatched pair for now.

This unit is NOT adjustable beyond a minor tilt - meaning that you might end up with the fancy designer base sitting on a book or 2.

The sound isn't stellar, but ok...I doubt that I'll ditch my (great sounding) 1999 Creative/CambridgeSoundworks FPS2000 speaker system just yet. As others have noted, the controls are a bit hypersensitive too.

I would have returned this unit if I hadn't had it sitting in the box for 2 weeks while I cleaned up my work station to set it up. Impulse purchases are not always wise no matter the incentives. In the end, I feel that I have been spoiled with the superior image of the PA248Q and now I am not willing to give it up.

I had the 23" version of this monitor and really liked it. Upgraded to this 27", and it's just as beautiful, only bigger. Colours are vivid and bright.

Clear picture, decent audio

Comments about ASUS MX279H - LED monitor - 27":

I purchased this 2 weeks ago, I found picture quality good, the built-in speakers are okay, better than most screen speakers, but does not compare to stand-alone speakers obviously. My only issue was that even with a decent video card and my resolution at 1920, I was unable to use the whole screen, it gave me a border of about 1.5 inches all around. For that cost, I could have saved $100 and got a similar 25" screen which is basically what I was getting with this since it would not fill the entire screen.
