Review 1 for ASUS 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor with Webcam, Black (VK278Q)

Low cost solution to Mac mini monitor

After rsearching my options for a monitor for a second home, I came to the realization there were few choices for me with a 27" monitor, 1920 x 1080, and a decent contrast ratio.
I placed my order. . . It arrived in just a couple of days. . . plugged it in ... it worked great from the start. One draw- back is that ther isn't any software, that I'm aware of, to make use of the built in camera Option I chose for face to face communication. That's something I ASSUMED would work. I made a mistake. I wouldn't pay extra for that feature unless I was sure beyond suggestion, as some sellers did, that it worked.
I'd may buy another without the camera just to have the luxury of two 27" monitors at two thirds the price of Apple's wonderful 27" monitor.

Review 2 for ASUS 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor with Webcam, Black (VK278Q)

Webcam driver fiasco

I returned it after being unable to load the webcam driver either from CD come in the box or from ASUS website.
After installing from CD, I see a message 'latop only.' Hello??!!! The CD label says 'LCD monitor.'
Went through ordeal calling a couple of lousy tech support and sending E-mails for solution-still unresolved. Duriing a call, a lady tells me my PC is infected with worm after she checks it by way of remote connection. Another Hello???!!!
After downloding, I could not open it because it was compressed 'rar' file. After downloading unzip software hassel and installing it, I see still the same message.
I learned from a review that the webcam did not have a microphone-this must be confirmed. The display quality was just like my other 1080 monitor. I would not recommend it if one will buy it for the webcam feature and 27 inch size just like I did. I bought ASUS VE278H and Microsoft Webcam studio later. This webcam did not come with CD and it was very easy to download and to install the software from the Microsoft website.

Review 3 for ASUS 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor with Webcam, Black (VK278Q)

Nice Design - Trim, Stable, Functional

Very nice monitor. Primarily used for business. Have two of these side by side. Excel on one, email and web and miscellaneous on the other. Very crisp and easy to read from a relaxed position. Do not use for games, movies, video or graphic design so I cannot provide comments on how it displays movies, games, color accuracy, etc.
It is the nicest monitor I have used for business in the last 20 years.

A great monitor for AutoCad
Posted 08/15/2011
Used a Asus 20" for Cad but was really surprised what this monitor can deliver in terms of graphic design. Picture is clear and precise, and with the built in Web-cam we can conference while we work. I am glad that Walmart sells this model. I hope to purchase a second one soon.

Review 4 for ASUS 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor with Webcam, Black (VK278Q)

Excellent Monitor

I have this same monitor at work, and liked it so much that I had to buy the same one for home. The only thing negative I can even think to say is that in a home setting, this monitor is pretty bright. I didn't notice how bright under the fluorescent lights at work. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

The camera software does not work. I am still trying to get the camera to work with Windows 8. I use my monitor everyday an it looks great. Beside the camera I would recommend it to anyone.

Review 6 for ASUS 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor with Webcam, Black (VK278Q)

Excellent monitor. Lousy TV. PIP is limited.

Excellent monitor. Lousy TV. PIP is not fully functional. For example, you can't have an HDMI source and an HDMI in the PIP. You can do HDMI in the PIP and VGA on the main screen, etc. I think it won't do two high res sources.
The unit does NOT have a remote. So raising or lowering the volume, turning the unit off, etc. have to be done with buttons.
Was hoping to have the hi-res computer monitor and TV in the PIP but not possible. Also, who would want a TV without a remote for the volume or power?
Great concept, but I returned it.
