Beautiful aluminum design.

5ms might not be quite fast enough for some gamers.

Kitguru says: If you want to upgrade to a new high grade IPS panel then the ASUS Designo MX27AQ should be right at the top of your final list.

Review: Asus MX27AQ 27in WQHD Monitor

 

Thin and modern looking monitor, with a quality panel to match.

This is a smart looking monitor with a great quality panel to match. The lack of VESA mounting will bother a few people, but if you need your monitor to look good on the desk as well as display a quality image, the MX27AQ might be for you.

Hidden Gem!! Incredible Monitor

 

My old 2006 Samsung 226bw finally kicked the bucket and I needed a replacement that could not only match toe-to-toe with its drool-inducing imaging, but exceed it as well. After MANY days of reading, researching, and doing it all over again, I took a...

- Can play any role for your monitor needs: Excellent color-critical work, gaming, document editing, and movie/TV watching - Superior build quality and craftsmanship - Setup is a breeze - Worked even with my old 580gtx at native res - Bright enough to...

Absolutely Perfect

 

I love the look of these monitors. I purchased 2 and they look amazing. The attention to quality with ASUS products never disappoints. No blemishes or no dead pixels at all on both monitors. The metal exterior is a welcome design decision, as I am sick...

The color and dynamic range of these monitors are so good that I can no longer use any of my old monitors because they now look washed out.

Amazing Monitor!

 

I would absolutely recommend this monitor. After I plugged it in and saw the quality, I immediately thought about buying a second one, which I still might do! I did a lot of research on monitors before buying this one. Anyone who is worried, as I was,...

This monitor is beautiful! My old monitor was a 1080p 23" Samsung. When I have them next to each other, my old one looks like garbage (Dull, blurry, etc..). 1440p IPS and 27" has so much real-estate! Didn't adjust anything out of the box and it still...

I have no cons to report.

Amazing

 

1440p is perfect. The scaling is great with windows 8.1. Couldn't be more happy. The aesthetics are stunning as well. No dead pixels. No blemishes everything is perfect.

The box wasn't double boxed. Nothing against the product but come on newegg how are you going to ship a 500$ monitor with no protection or even a fragile sticker.

Beautiful Display

 

Very nice upgrade over my old Dell 20" 4:3. Had to turn down brightness as it is very bright. Didn't do any calibrations out of box and it still looks good. Games look great, no ghosting that I have noticed. Very satisfied with this monitor.

Bright, rich colors, sharp text. Very Stylish, no bezel/border display Display Port and HDMI connections Sturdy stand

No height adjustment. No big deal for me. Could be cheaper as some 4K displays are in this price range. DP cable way too short.

27" @ 1440p = The Sweet Spot

 

I compared this with several TN panels that had higher refresh rates. I am so glad I went with this one. IMO I think the IPS colors are much more valuable than a higher frame rate while at a similar price point.

+Design just looks really clean +Solid Construction, (Metal and Matte surfaces) +IPS panel, colors are glorious +27" @ 1440p seem to be a sweet spot in pixels per inch +Gaming is smooth even at 60hz (using the game Dying Light) +Viewing angles paired...

Note: Mounting options are limited, you have to use the provided mount. That being said the "sun dial" mount they provide is very good but might not be elevated enough for some users.

Excellent Monitor

 

Now I need another one of these to replace my 2nd monitor.

I received this monitor in perfect condition, no dead pixels, no backlight bleeding. The color is amazing, a little calibration was needed. It took my eyes a couple days to adjust to the difference between this and my old 1080 TN panel. I didn't...

I did a lot of research beforehand. I knew exactly what I was getting, so can't really nitpick features. I haven't encountered any flaws so far. So I'll just say there's no vesa-mount or height adjustment, but it fit my needs.
