9 Reasons For

User Reviews Are Good

The average user rating of this PC display is 86% based on 8 user reviews.

Asus PC Displays Have Good Reviews

Medium monitors built by Asus have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all LCD screens (not just medium monitors) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

Reasonably Priced

One Asus VG278HV owner who reviewed the Asus VG278HV considered that it was good value for money. J. Gallagher scored it 5 stars and mentioned on Amazon “Great price and quality” in their review of the Asus VG278HV.

Good Product Quality

One customer mentioned in their reviews that the product was good quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out more than a year ago, the VG278HV has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Viewsonic VA2037[plb_1471364_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Big Display Diagonal (metric)

PC monitors of this type and age have display diagonal (metric)s of between 48cm and 89cm. At 68.6 centimeters, the Asus VG278HV has a quite big display diagonal (metric) compared to most of the other PC displays that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the VG278HV is 1W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 5.1W. At 6 Watts, the VG278HV has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the VG278HV.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago do not have a built-in camera. The Asus VG278HV is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The Asus VG278HV is not 3D. Most of the other LCD screens that were released more than a year ago are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D then you might want to look at the Samsung S29E790C[plb_2827679_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the VG278HV, the Asus VG278HV does not have a card reader integrated.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with a card reader integrated and we think the DELL 2407WFP[plb_3247392_price], or the Benq SW2700PT[plb_2982141_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
