5Turn off VividPixel, you will be very pleased with this monitor!
By Marc
I am a computer engineer and work 8 hrs a day in front of 9 27"monitors... I own several Samsung monitors (S27D390 - PLS type) and now the VN279Q. Unhappy with the Samsung picture (slight 1/8" shadow on the right edge), I hoped the ASUS would be better. I was "just about" to return these because of the inferior ''text" quality and discovered the "VividPixel" setting (default-on-25). Turned it off and.... wow... this is a GREAT monitor. The black levels are spectacular, text is crisp, no perceived light bleed, CLEARLY superior to the S27's. Wish I found these before now..

5Even with a dead pixel, this display looks excellent
By Ken Mercer
I got my display today. It has a single dead pixel (only the red part) which is unnoticeable unless you are looking at a red screen. Asus has a 7 day warranty that covers any dead pixels but I'm just going to keep it as I haven't noticed it when in actual use.

The picture quality is excellent, glare reduction is great without sacrificing picture quality. If you don't want to get into the price range of the 2560x1440 displays this is the one to get. Pivot function is great while coding and on websites like Reddit or news sites.

Asus uses really good panels and have excellent build quality. You may need to tweak the color settings to your liking but once you've done that you'll love the monitor. It has low GTG for gaming, great viewing angels, and a super thin bezel if you're hooking up more than one for a Eyefinity or similar desktop.

4Great monitor, but watch out for quality control problems.
0.31 dot pitch good for elderly users with bad eye sight.
No backlight leakage.
Nice bright colors. It's a bit on the cold side out of the box, tweak-able with monitor controls.
No noticeable flickering from PWM. (Parents have sensitive eyes)
Very slim bezels.. Looks very modern.

Bad quality control. (Read explanation below)
Tinny sounding speakers. Volume output is really low.
No USB ports.
Semi-hidden screen controls are not very easy to use.
No DVI port.

I tried getting two of these monitors for my elderly parents. Both of them have do not have the best eye sight anymore. The larger dot pitch is perfect for them. Unfortunately, I was only able to keep 1 good monitor. The first monitor ordered was perfect, no backlight leakage, no dead/sub-dead pixels, no dust spots. Attempts to secure a second monitor was unsuccessful. 2 subsequent monitors ordered both had problems with sub-dead pixels and multiple dust spots in the LCD panel. Amazon stated that ASUS' policy states that up to 5 sub-dead pixels were within their allowed limit. I was refused a 3rd monitor.

Great monitor, but watch out for quality control problems.
