Subtle & elegant design
Incredibly subtle but sophisticated
ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with MX279H
measuring just 17.5mm at its thinnest point– thereby minimizing desk
space requirements. In addition, the MX Series presents an edge-to-edge
frameless screen with bezel thickness of just 0.8mm. This subtle but
elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which
provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already
garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.
Vivid, lifelike visuals
The latest IPS technology with 178° wide-view angles
features a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a
178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both
horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from
almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology –
delivering improved color accuracy plus increased energy
uses a 178°(H) / 178°(V) ultra-wide viewing angle full HD AH-IPS
A+ panel that eliminates color shift from almost any direction
and in nearly all environments.
Built tough and gamer-centric comfortable
Tracer Free Technology improves
the response time of ASUS monitors, eliminating ghosting and
tracers during video playback. It does this by controlling
voltage levels, resulting in 5ms response time so MX279H
provides fluid and clear video playback with silky-smooth motion
ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design
ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals
With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
(ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279H augments
display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting
luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for
truly lifelike visuals.
QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get
ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit
Virtual Scale feature with the MX279H, allowing you to preview
photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to
printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a
highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their

Premium Immersive Audio
The Designo MX279H features ASUS
SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the ASUS Golden
Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. This ASUS-exclusive audio
technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every
acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear,
true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct
vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.
Greater and smoother output with bigger speakers
Considering its slender form
factor, adding powerful audio to MX279H presented a challenge.
Nonetheless, the display features up to 32mm diameter speakers
for greater and smoother sound impact with better bass
performance. It also offers a resonance chamber of up to 100cc,
expanding monitor sound range to new extremes.
amplifier powers speaker sound reproduction, just like a car
engine with more horsepower means better performance can be
attained. MX279H uses up to 5W amplifiers per channel, with
speakers embedding large rare earth magnets to generate more
powerful and striking sound.
Audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®
ASUS MX279H delivers outstanding images and stunning graphics that
deserve superior sound to complete multimedia experiences whether
watching movies, gaming, or listening to music. It features
state-of-the-art audio technology from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®,
with great sound packed into its slim form factor to create
incredibly engaging sound quality. This means no investment in
additional speakers is needed.
Bang & Olufsen
ICEpower® technology on MX279H has been developed specifically for
compact media products to create excellent sound even in confined
spaces. The superior sound quality is a result of innovative
technology, ample power delivery, and months of optimizing and
fine-tuning by audio engineers. Typically, powerful sound equals
high energy consumption, but that’s not the case with MX279H. The
screen’s embedded Class D MobileSound 3 technology is highly energy
efficient, converting up to 92 % of power input to useful audio
Dual HDMI for extensive connectivity
The Designo MX279H supports Full HD
1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input
ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices
including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras

Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
For the price, you get a large, attractively designed monitor with pretty decent audio thrown in. But the resolution of the screen holds it back from being a great computer monitor, making it better instead for watching movies or gaming.

Over all I'm really happy with my 3 monitors but the bezel getting wider at the bottom kind of ruins a eyefinity set up. It's not too much of a problem if you have the side monitors angled. I'm really happy with my purchase and I would buy ASUS again but I might look into other monitors for my eyefinity set up.
Overall, its a nice looking Monitor. I really like the thinn bezel, but unfortunately, the bezel is wider at the bottom making this monitor horrible for surround gaming...besides this MAJOR flaw, the monitor is great if you are only using one. This review was modfied by poster y 03-04-13 06:52 AM
