    Initial Thoughts: Positive but some rough spots…, December 2, 2011

    This review is from: Asus VG278H 27-Inch 3D Full-HD LED Monitor with Integrated Stereo Speakers (Personal Computers)

    Quick caveat – I’ve had this monitor for a couple of weeks, but my new computer to take advantage of the 3D didn’t arrive until a couple of days ago. I did use it as a screen for my laptop previously, but have just started to use it more intensively for the purposes it’s designed for. So this is a quick and dirty review of the positives and negatives so far, and may change after more use:

    Here are the positives:

    Great looking – it’s not as sleek as the Samsung 3D monitors, but it’s clean with a pretty thin bezel.

    Solid physical construction – also exceedingly easy to attach to the base.

    Physical buttons, not touch sensitive buttons – although for some reason being under the bottom edge feels awkward. Still, they’re solid buttons.

    Height adjustment (somewhat rare for a monitor this size, I gather) – very easy to raise and lower the monitor.

    Matte finish, not glossy.

    Comes with Nvidia 3D Vision 2.

    When you get it working, the 3D is really cool.

    It took the latest patch on the PowerDVD software to play a 3D movie, but once I managed to do so, it looked great.

    2D looks awesome – though you’ll likely have to reduce the brightness and find some 2D settings online to make it look as good as it can.

    120 Hz refresh makes moving windows around entertaining for awhile

    Here are the rough edges:

    The viewing angle is pretty poor. As soon as you start moving to the side it becomes more and more washed out. You won’t be able to, comfortably, watch a 3D movie with friends on this monitor.

    Using the monitor’s menu settings buttons always is awkward for me (to be fair, I haven’t found a monitor yet that I like how it does menu settings and choices with physical buttons)

    The Nvidia 3D quick start guide seems to still be written for the first version, some of the lights that are supposed to come up on the glasses/cord are in different places than the illustrations.

    The cable connection slots should give a bit more room from the monitor’s back. Even the included Dual Link DVI-D cable barely fits into the slot due to there not being enough space (and it’s not completely snug). The power connector seems to have the same problem.

    No DisplayPort connection slot.

    It took a bit longer than I expected to figure out how to set up 3D for games.

    Odd ‘horizontal stuttering’ in Crysis.. if I look left or right, there’s a stutter, but moving forward (or even moving while turning left or right) is fine. Someone else referred to this for ‘Shooters’ in general, so I need to do more testing to see if this is the case in all shooters and whether it matters if it’s 3D vs 2D. If this is a persistent problem, then my rating may drop.

    Some people have noticed an odd ‘oval’ light bleed pattern appearing in the center of the screen after some use. It worries me, but so far my monitor hasn’t shown this effect.. then again, only have been seriously using it for a couple of days.

    Other units had problems with the integrated 3d emitter not being connected properly, but mine is fine.

    Bottom Line: Looking at my positives vs negatives, it would seem like I should rate it lower than 4 stars, but once it’s working the 2D is awesome, and the 3D is pretty fun. There are issues though, in particular the horizontal stuttering, that may drop my rating after some use. Other issues haven’t occurred with my monitor yet (IR emitter not connected, and odd backlight bleed patterns) but are useful for a new buyer to be aware of. Will report back with any changes to the review that are relevant after more use.

    UNBELIEVABLE!!!, December 3, 2011

    Just got this from Amazon. Fantastic Monitor and 3D setup!!

    Hardware:
    Easy setup, all relevant cables included except for HDMI. Monitor has height and tilt adjustment with a sturdy stand. Didn’t even need to use the monitor setup buttons. Because the screen is large for its resolution, some of you will notice the pixels, but will forget about it as soon as you fire up a supported 3D game. Included instructions for the 3d vision 2 glasses from Nvidia are from the previous generation glasses. It is not a big deal, the power on button on the glasses is by the left eye lens, and make sure you charge it first from the USB cable included – that’s all you need to know.

    Gaming:
    You have to see it to believe it! Colors are bright and vibrant, and the 3D is something that should not be missed – by anyone who likes PC gaming. Make sure you update your Nvidia drivers and use the DVI cable included. You have to set the resolution of each game to the native 1920×1080 resolution (and in some cases the refresh rate) within the game or it won’t work. So you will need a beefy video card. I have dual GTX460s in SLI and I have yet to come across a game that my setup cannot handle. Most supported games will prompt you to turn a specified setting on/off. Some games like Batman Arkham Asylum, need VSYNC on and motion blur off. So far I have also tried Mass Effect, Metro 2033, Witcher 2, and Resident Evil 5, and I am absolutely blown away by how good the 3D looks!!

    The only downside is the price. If the prices of these monitors and 3D glasses were cheaper, you would see a lot more support for 3D games on the PC. But if you want to indulge in the one gift for yourself this year – this is the one!!! You will not regret it.

    I was unsure what monitor I wanted and how much I wanted to spend. I researched for 3 months and decided to spend a little more money than I wanted, but I am glad I did. I upgraded from a 23 inch Asus LED monitor, and this thing blows it out of the water. The colors are great, no dead pixels, 120hz makes all the games I used to play so much funner. If you are unsure about this monitor, don’t be. Get this and you well be very happy. This is my second Asus monitor and I am sure my next one is also going to be Asus.
