Review: Asus has churned out a number of good budget monitors. The 27-inch VE278Q is one perfect example. The AI Light function, in addition to being more eco-friendly, automatically assists you in low-lit or dark environment by adjusting your monitor's brightness. It also provides outstanding Full HD 1080p widescreen performance. The 2ms Response Time guarantees no motion blur of any kind when watching sports or movies with high-speed scenes and the 10,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio delivers brilliant and vivid colors. Given all these features, the VE278Q is a premier choice for multimedia use, as well as for professionals who need a big screen. The Splendid Video Intelligence Technology pays attention to all the aspects necessary to display a clear and good picture. 4 Color Temperature modes and 3 Skin Tone modes ensure the best color. To suit different purposes, PIP(Picture in Picture) function and six preset video modes such as Scenery, Theater, Game, Night View, sRGB and Standard are easily selectable through a Hotkey. HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces are likewise featured in the VE278Q. Included accessories are a DVI cable, a VGA cable, an Audio cable and a Power cord. In terms of aesthetics, the ASUS VE278Q is similar to most monitors in the sense that it has the usual slim bezel around the screen. What sets it apart, however, is its non-glossy finish that makes everything easier to view and reduces reflections coming from other light sources inside the room. However, light bleeding around the edges of the screen can be expected. There are two 3-watt built-in stereo speakers but like in any other budget monitor, it is fine for casual use but don't expect it to do miracles. Also, the base, aside from not being height-adjustable, can be a little wobbly. Mounting it to a wall may be a better alternative if you feel that it helps keep the unit safe and stable but other than that, the Asus VE278Q is as good as it gets, at least when it comes to price and size.
