9 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The VN279H is one of the most economic to run PC displays that have been around for the last year that we have looked at for 5 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the VN279H is only £4.

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its PC Displays

Asus has good average reviews for its medium monitors as well as across its entire PC display range compared to other manufacturers.

Nice Design

One customer who reviewed it reckoned that it was aesthetic. Carl Tyler he wrote “Clear visuals, sRGB color accuracy, minimal backlight bleed and a VERY sleek aesthetic with it's slim bezels”.

Good Product Quality

One person mentioned in their reviews that it was good quality. Grégory Baptiste said in their Asus VN279H review “Good screen, quality is good, I enjoy this screen a lot”.

Good Size

One Asus VN279H reviewer considered that it was thin.

Only Released Six Months Ago

The VN279H was only relased by Asus six months ago. Newer PC screens like this one are likely to use better technology.

LED Display

This PC monitor has an LED display, which is the most frequently found display on new medium monitors.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display and we think because of it's better review score, the iiyama GB2783QSU[plb_3810040_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Acer Predator XB271HU[plb_3406684_price].

9 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use
