Matt,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Was worried about pixel density but its really not a problem. Clear, sharp wonderful colour reproduction, no problems playing games, movie mode is excellent for black levels, looks the shiznit especially when off as the bezel blends into the screen, nice matt finish, no glare. If you were trying to decide wether to spend the extra for an IPS then just do it, your senses will thank you. 27" seems to me to be the perfect size for a good all round screen at what seems a bargain of a price, good for work, movies and gaming. Now they just need to release a G-Sync IPS and I'll be over that. Looks and feels quality for the price, slick is how I'd describe its aesthetics. Can't seem to go wrong with ASUS.
Bad points:
Nope, just wish they could do IPS G-Sync.

Paul,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great looks - superb picture quality
Bad points:
Came with euro plug only, naff control buttons and could do with a few more input options. All stuff you can live with for what is ultimately a very nice monitor for the cash.

Manufacturer's Description

Inspired by millennia of artistic legacy, the new VX279Q sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design, and features an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ panel for incredible visuals. It’s ultra-slim and ergonomic design can be tilted to provide you comfortable viewing experiences, while a range of ports offer extensive connectivity options.

The VX279Q comes with rich connectivity including DisplayPort, HDMI/MHL and VGA so that users can easily share and view content from MHL-enabled mobile devices on a much bigger screen, as well as charging MHL devices simultaneously. Connect the VX279Q to Full HD Blu-ray Disc players and myriad HD playback devices like DVD players and set-top boxes for limitless entertainment and multimedia enjoyment with the built-in stereo speakers.

The VX279Q features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit panel panel with a wide-view angle that minimises colour shift on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved colour accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.

With an Asus Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80000000:1, the VX279Q augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals. Exclusive VividPixel technology enhances outline, sharpness, and colour saturation of images and videos to deliver a high-quality visual experience.

The exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology optimises video performance and image fidelity by enhancing colour, brightness, contrast, and sharpness. 6 preset video modes (Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB and Standard) can be selected via a hotkey. Asus includes their exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the VX279Q, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.
