10 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the VN279H is only £4, which is in the cheapest 1% of all 395 similar spec PC screens that were launched in the last 12 months.

Asus Has Good PC Screen Reviews

Good Size

One Asus VN279H reviewer considered that it was thin.
