The ASUS VE278Q monitor is an interesting, capable blend of standard technology and some superior features. The overall picture is that of a big well-designed example of its type, especially popular with gamers, who appreciate its fast action-ready response rate of 2ms.

Like many other similar monitors, this one does not have touch screen capability, but this is more than made up for by the VE278Qâ€™s two or three outstanding features. First, ASUSâ€™ exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence technology optimises video performance and image fidelity by enhancing the displayâ€™s colour, brightness, contrast, and sharpness. The result is high-quality colour reproduction that meets all demands short of those needed by professional designer studios. LED backlighting and Full HD with HDMI help. Picture in picture technology means that you can see 2 different signals product on screen at once. Lastly in this list of outstanding features of the VE278Q, a hotkey gives access to no fewer than 6 preset video modes, and you can see it all on one of the biggest screens on the market (27 "). This is, altogether, an unusually attractive monitor configuration.
