ASUS’ MX279H isn’t one of the best 27 inch IPS displays we’ve ever come across. But in this case it wasn’t the manufacturers intention. This display is much more about price/performance rather than just price. It’s great that there is an AH-IPS panel but still we think that 1080p is not enough for a 27 inch panel. 1440p is the perfect resolution for such a display and everything that is below is a serious compromise. A display which features excellent design and comes with a “Bang & Olufsen” badge, should be more about performance than just price. Never the less, it’s a really good looking thing and if you want a display that looks very nice on a desktop, that features a decent AH-IPS panel but you don’t care about the FullHD resolution, then the MX279H might be the right monitor for you to choose.
