ASUS VP278H Gaming Monitor - 27" FHD (1920x1080), 1ms, Low Blue Light, Flicker Free
VP278H 27”Full HD monitor with 100,000,000:1 high contrast ratio, ASUS-exclusive SplendidPlus and VividPixel technologies are optimized for the finest image and color quality. This approach extends to the sturdy stand and slim profile without compromising style in ensuring stability and durability.
100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
Dynamically enhances the display’s contrast by adjusting the luminance of the backlight to achieve the darkest black and brightest white – delivering lifelike images.
1ms Quick Response Time
1ms (GTG) quick response time eliminates ghosting and tracers for more fluid video playback.
When it comes to design, ASUS always has customers in mind – the ASUS VP278H features the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey with crosshair and timer functions. Gamers can select four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment; while the latter keeps players aware of the elapsed time in real-time strategy games. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve on their gaming skills.
We’ve raised the bar by incorporating some of our proprietary technologies into the ASUS VP278H to give you a truly vivid visual experience. The VP278H features the new SplendidPlus™ Video Intelligence Technology that optimizes videos and images by enhancing color brightness, contrast, and sharpness. SplendidPlus™ features two new modes – Reading and Darkroom – in addition to the Scenery, Standard, Theater, sRGB, and Night View modes. Low-blue Light and Flicker-free technologies also reduce the strain on your eyes after long periods of use.
ASUS VividPixel Technology helps enhance image outlines and reduce noise bars for crystal-clear and detail-oriented viewing.
Ultra-low Blue Light Monitor
The TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Blue Light Filter protects you from harmful blue light, and you can easily access its four different filter settings via a hotkey. VP278H has undergone stringent performance tests and has been certified by TÜV Rheinland laboratories, a global provider of technical, safety, and certification services, to be flicker-free and to emit low blue light levels
It's time to say goodbye to those tired, strained eyes. VP278H features TÜV Rheinland-certified ASUS Flicker-Free technology to reduce flicker for a comfortable viewing experience. This technology helps minimize instances of eyestrain and other damaging ailments, especially when you spend long, countless hours in front of a display watching favorite videos.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
