Product Overview

Asus VL278H is an affordable 27-inch FHD 3000R-curved gaming monitor in Asus's 2019 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit TN panel.
Its 3000R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. With a fast 1 ms response time, this display is a good gaming option. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support and comes with limited adjustments. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
