8 Reasons For
Asus PC Monitors Have Good Reviews
On average Asus medium monitors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all flatpanel monitors produced by Asus.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Asus VP278H has a built-in speaker(s), which is unusual. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago do not have a built-in speaker(s).
We compared all the other PC monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC screen and we think the VC279H (£160.84), and the VP239H (£158.81) both from Asus which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Asus BE239QLB (£169.99) is also worth considering.
Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
Most LCD screens of a similar age and spec to the VP278H have between one and two HDMI ports quantitys, including the Asus VP278H which has two HDMI ports quantitys.
Quite Bright Display Brightness
The average display brightness of PC monitors that came out more than a year ago is 280 cd/m², and the display brightnesss range from 200 cd/m² to 500 cd/m². With a display brightness of 300 candellas per square meter, the Asus VP278H has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released one year ago.
1080p Supported Video Modes
This LCD screen has a 1080p supported video modes, which is typical of many comparable spec PC screens that have been around for more than a year.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Supported Graphics Resolutions
This PC monitor has a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many medium monitors that were launched more than a year ago.
Has Four Cables Includeds
The Asus VP278H has a greater number of cables included than most medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year. This PC display has an AC cables included, which is the most commonly found cables included found on comparable spec PC monitors that have been on the market for around the same time as the VP278H. The cables includeds "Audio (3.5mm)", "HDMI" and "VGA" are also found on this LCD screen.
Quite Fast Response Time
With a response time of only 1 millisecond, the Asus VP278H has one of the fastest response times amongst LCD screens of this age. The response times of similar spec PC screens that came out more than a year ago range from 1ms to 25ms.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Asus VP278H does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC screens which also have a built-in camera to this PC monitor and we think the DELL UZ2315H (£175.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Have a Card Reader Integrated
Most PC monitors of this spec and age do not have a card reader integrated. The Asus VP278H is no exception to this as it too does not have a card reader integrated.
Most PC monitors of this type and age are not 3D. The Asus VP278H is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.
Only LCD Display
The Asus VP278H has a better display type than most PC displays that have been available for a similar time to it. This PC screen has an LCD display, whereas most medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it have an LED display.
This LCD screen's display type (LCD) is in fact the worst display type across all similar spec PC screens that came out more than a year ago.
An LED display is the best display type amongst similar types of LCD screen.
Alternative LCD screens that have an LCD Display currently available which you might also want to consider include the Acer G246HLF (£94.99) which is cheaper; or the AOC I2481FXH (£133.00) which has better reviews.
If the display type of this medium monitor is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Philips 274E5 (£198.99) (LED and higher rated) or the Benq BL2420Z (£144.99) (LED and cheaper).
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is the most frequently found HD type on medium monitors that were launched around the same time as it.
Quite Narrow Viewing Angle, Horizontal
At only 170 degrees, the Asus VP278H has a quite narrow viewing angle, horizontal compared to most of the other PC screens of a similar age and spec to the VP278H. Comparable spec flatpanel monitors that were released one year ago have viewing angle, horizontals of between 18° and 180°.
Fairly High Power Consumption (off)
The lowest power consumption (off) of medium monitors that are a similar age to the VP278H is 0.005W and the highest is 350W. The Asus VP278H has one of the higher power consumption (off)s (0.5 Watts) amongst similar spec PC displays of this age.
