6 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to it.

We compared all the other LCD screens that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think the DELL U2414H[plb_2140878_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung S24E370DL[plb_3021431_price], and the HP EliteDisplay E240c[plb_3059589_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Asus VP278Q has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the VP278Q.

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq RL2755[plb_2743325_price], the LG 29UM57-P[plb_2782303_price], and the Asus MX259[plb_2731940_price] is also worth considering.

Two HDMI Ports

Chart Edit

Quite Big Display Diagonal

Across all the flatpanel monitors of this type and age the screen sizes range from 48cm to 600cm. At 68.6 centimeters, the Asus VP278Q has a fairly big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC displays of a similar type and age to the VP278Q.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

Across all the flatpanel monitors that have been around for a similar time to the VP278Q the response times range from 1ms to 40ms. When compared to other comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to the VP278Q that we have assessed, the response time of the Asus VP278Q of only 1 millisecond is one of the fastest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than a year, the Asus VP278Q does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other PC displays which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the EliteDisplay E221c[pl_2895033_price], or the EliteDisplay E240c[pl_3059589_price] both from HP or the DELL UZ2315H[plb_2324899_price] are also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus VP278Q is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the LG 24MP47[plb_2768374_price].
