Just like another of the reviews i read for this panel, when I recieved mine the backlight was not working and so I had to RMA and resend the monitor within 2 hours of when I recieved it. The wait and lack of updates from the normally very responsive Customer Service dept. drove me really crazy, but finally I have received a new and working monitor and I'm very pleased by the quality of the image and gameplay. Even if you are not into the whole 3D thing this is a very good monitor to own. The next best thing would be a 16:10 ratio, 27" monitor with 120Hz refresh rate, 2ms response rate and that, my friends, does NOT exist. Trust me I've looked everywhere. This is the monitor to get if you do a lot of gaming and you don't want to deal with a double or triple monitor set-up.
I have recently receved my brand new ASUS VG278H 3D monitor with Nvidia 3D vision 2 glasses. I am very impressed with the improvement in picture quality and of course am having tons of fun playing games like MW3 and Diablo3 beta in full sterioscopic 3D. Unfortunately the first monitor was deffective the backlight was broken, most likely shipping damage but the RMA department at NCIX took great care of me. I got my second one it works beautifully. The only two drawbacks of this item is the price and of course the high vunerability to breakage.
If you google the Backlight bleeding halo issue there are literally hundreds of people with the same problem. As a premier VIP member, I've RMA'd this and NCIX is great and is sending me a new one (delivered tomorrow). Ill update my post and let everyone know if the new one has the same issue. I've contacted Asus and they are aware of this issue. just not sure if there is going to be a recall or a second revision replacement yet. I just wanted to let everyone know before they purchase that this could Happen. Other than the Oval Bleed issue. The monitor Is absolutely AMAZING. definately the best monitor I've seen for 2d/3d gaming. And ive worked with the new samsung 950d's. 120hz makes a huge difference in fast paced games like shooters and such. Ghosting is virtually non existent in both 2d and 3d. Ill give this 4 stars because of the back light issue. Otherwise I'de give it 6 for being that damn good.
This monitor is probably one of the best ones that I have ever found. I went through a few monitors to finally find this one! I first tried the Samsung S27A950 in regards to the 120hz upgrading from my old BenQ VA panel, which was amazing. I liked the Samsung other than the fact that it was a glossy screen, and because it didnt have Nvidia 3D, but its own version of it. As I dont like glossy screen (as I found out) and I run a GTX 590 (which compliments Nvidia 3D), I decided I would return it to try a different one. I then tried the ASUS PA238Q IPS monitor. The colours, as good as they were, annoyed me to no end with the highly grainy AG coating. Other than the colours, which I found nice but not justified, the remainder of the monitor was just insufficient for gaming.
