Rated 2 out of 5 by Everon DisplayPort does not work
A great monitor for the price if you are only going to connect via HDMI.
The problems begin when you wish to connect via Displayport as this monitor has known issues syncing with GPU on system startup if connected via Displayport. All you get is "No signal" even after repeated attempts to get it to connect.
Asus has known of this fault for over a year and yet it still remains. A quick search of "VX279Q displayport problem" shows the extent of the issues.
Knowing of these issues I would not have purchased this monitor, I wish I could return it but I am beyond the 30 day return now.

First monitor I've had and what a difference, picture quality is spot on for both gaming and working and the IPS screen looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Didge Good Value - Good product
This is a great IPS monitor, I have bought two of them, one for myself and another for a custom build for a friend, the resolution for anything on a 27" monitor with the 1200 x1080 resolution is fine, so do not listen to those who think it is not enough. Games come to life and pictures are sharp and crystal clear. Good price great product, the only down side is the controls on the monitor to adjust brightness, contrast etc. Come on Asus you could have put more thought into this! The controls however are not enough to put me off this great monitor, the picture quality far outweighs this minor glitch, highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Forseti Very Good IPC monitor
I definitely recommend this monitor. Sleek design, great colors. The only drawback that UK version doesn't come with HDMI / DisplayPort cable, which is in EU version, because it is supplied with UK power cable plus EU cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragonheart Beautiful colours and brightness
This being my first monitor for my gaming rig i could not of chose a better monitor, coming from console gaming to pc gaming i can live with 1080p @ 60fps with the beautiful colours and contrast... as for the 5ms response time i do not notice a thing its perfect for fast fps racing beat em ups all the games i love and more often than not i still finish top of the board! design is also elegant and beautiful. I will always go for an ips monitor from here on out as i prefer good looking games to bland looking ones which the TN panels do not give the same quality as to these ones :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1UP3388 Large, excellent IPS screen lacking only in swivel ability
Large, excellent IPS screen lacking only in swivel ability. Max resolution is 1920x1080, but I require only 1080p and no more. Excellent price for 27" IPS screen. Other manufacturers charge £300 upwards, but usually offer higher resolutions. I would recommend this monitor and I am very pleased with it.
