Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
ASUS MX279HS is an alright monitor for most uses. It has a large size but the 1080p resolution can be limiting. It can't get very bright so it's more suitable for a dim room. The low input lag offers a responsive gaming experience but there are no advanced gaming features.
