Inspired by millennia of artistic legacy, the new Designo MX Series sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design. The MX279H features an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ technology for incredible visuals. In addition, built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers immersive premium audio performance. The 2012 Good Design Award-winning ultra-slim and ergonomic design can be tilted to provide you highly comfortable viewing experiences, while dual HDMI offers extensive connectivity options.

Subtle & elegant design
Incredibly subtle but sophisticated
ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with MX279H measuring just 17.5mm at its thinnest point– thereby minimizing desk space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.

Vivid, lifelike visuals
The latest IPS technology with 178° wide-view angles
Designo MX279H features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color 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 color accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.

Vivid, lifelike visuals MX279H uses a 178°(H) / 178°(V) ultra-wide viewing angle full HD AH-IPS A+ panel that eliminates color shift from almost any direction and in nearly all environments.

Built tough and gamer-centric comfortable
Tracer Free Technology improves the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX279H provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion during gameplay.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design
ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals
With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279H augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.

QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

HDTV 720/1080
Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" ASUS MX279H Monitor, IPS Panel, 1920x1080, 5ms, 250cd/m² HDMI/VGA, Speakers, Black/ Silver is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from used it for the last 4 years This is the best monitor I had in my life so far. I bought it 4 years ago from Scan. The design is brilliant, the picture is nice. Not simply a monitor, the nice design makes it something that decorates your desk or even the whole room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What are you waiting for, go buy this gorgeous monitor. Bought this as a monitor for my PS4. Quite simply it is superb. Colours literally pop out of the screen, great definition and the sound from the built in speakers is more than adequate The very thin top and side edges look the business, very modern with the cool stand too. If I had one small niggle it was the fact that the menu was difficult to navigate initially, took some getting use to but once I got my head around it there was no problem. Very highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good monitor This is a very good monitor providing high quality at a decent value. The picture quality of the monitor is crystal clear and crisp with a great range of colours. The built-in speakers also produce really good sound, not too much of a difference from a standard TV. The monitor is very easy to set up and takes up only a small amount of space. The only flaw I can note about this monitor is the menu buttons are touch responsive and can therefore be very temperamental and too sensitive. It took me a while to select the right settings for the monitor because of the buttons. This is a great monitor and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant monitor, with a flaw for UK customers Fantastic looking monitor - colours are vibrant and bold, the slim bezel looks great both with the screen off and on, the overall design is attractive and professional looking. The speakers are exceptional for a monitor, great for casual gaming sounds, not sure how it fairs up in a game like Battlefield or COD but I imagine a range of sounds would be complemented nicely. Howvever, as a UK customer, I was shocked to discover that the UK plug wasn't compatible with the power block. There was a single socket on the power adapter for the EU cable which has a different connector to the UK cable. This made the UK cable obsolete and the monitor obsolete unless you have (or purchase) a EU to UK plug adapter, which I had to do. Fortunately, this only involved a short drive to the nearest store but it was still a major downfall considering I had purchased a product from a UK store. I fully recommend this monitor for those who want an centrepiece for their desks and are prepared to splash out over £200.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Wow. Can't get enough of these Bang and Olufsen speakers. So nice. Pure quality. Found the set up for the picture very strange, and also cannot get rid of some little box that floats about the screen, it says something about "demo" and I'm yet to figure this out. But other than that this monitor is lush!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully amazing I can't recommened this monitor enough, I had it for about a month now, I have originally bought it accompany my PS4 but I use it more often as a dual monitor for my laptop. I have never realised how washed up colours on my laptop were until i got this monitor, god those colours are beautiful! As a Graphic Designer I have to say that the feature where it shows you how big an A4 is on Illustrator or other programs is just great! Sound is also astonishing, I don't think that there is any flaw which I don't like in this monitor. Hands down ASUS, you did a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Monitor For Excellent Value. I recently ordered this monitor and the delivery timing was impressive as always, although I wasn't happy with the packaging. I received it in its original box and it wasn't protected at all. Upon opening it up I just hoped it wasn't damaged and to my suprise it wasn't. (Your lucky I love you so much Scan). I have been looking for an upgrade for quiet a while from my Samsung 22'. The build quality of this monitor is fantastic, solid and elegant. I was quiet over whelmed by the size as I hadn't seen this in store so make sure you have a little more room to fit this into your set up. Out the box the settings where a bit mehhh... But after a little adjustment its now running like a dream. I mainly use it to play games on although I have watched a film or two on it and its SWEET! the Bang & Olufsen Icepower speakers which are built in are nothing more that perfection. Best sound I have heard from a monitor. Only had this for a few days but if you have any questions please ask away. -_-

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointing :Great design, poor screen. Despite the lovely edge-to-edge design of this monitor, I can not recommend this product as the performance of my particular screen was disappointing. There was very noticeable backlight bleed from both bottom corners, colours were washed out and the text was blurry. Despite spending 3 days with the monitor trying to adjust to my liking, I eventually returned for a refund.
