After building a new gaming PC for myself, I decided to go with the VG245H's bigger brother. The difference between the two is the size of screen and most importantly, the refresh rate. The VG245H is a 24" display and features a 75hz refresh rate, while the VG278Q is a 27" display featuring a 144hz refresh rate. Both of these displays have a TN panel. If you are just a casual gamer and you like to do a lot of photo and video editing on the side, you might want to look at an IPS or VA panel. These TN panels don't have the greatest color or contrast, but they feature some of the fastest G2G response times available. So, if you're a gamer with a competitive nature, these are monitors that you should strongly consider. Try not to pay much too much attention to the reviews claiming that these displays are great for gaming but terrible for everything else. These displays can be tuned and calibrated for a great "all-around" computing experience; via the monitor's OSD, and your GPU's control panel. While they will never be as vivid as an IPS or VA panel, they can still be good for day to day computing. So take a little time to dial them in before giving in to the idea that these display are "washed out" with "poor color reproduction".
Pro tip: Make sure that the RGB range is set to FULL and not LIMITED in your GPU's control panel.
Both displays come with the same sturdy, ergonomic stand.
Who should buy these? Anyone looking for a fast, reliable, and affordable display. Serious gamers who value speed over contrast and color accuracy. Who shouldn't buy these? Anyone looking for rich, saturated colors and life-like reproduction of movies and photos. So it all boils down to what is most important to you. If fast and furious is what you are going for, this is the monitor for you. If eye candy and features are more important, then you should look elsewhere...and be prepared to spend more.
A couple of days ago (Mid January 2019) I got a graphics card update for my Nvidia gtx 1080. After the update a notification popped up that my monitor was G-Sync compatible and that I could activate it in Nvidia control panel. Sure enough it was now G-Sync compatible and even indicated in game that G-Sync was activated when I had the indicator toggled on. So this monitor is advertised as Free sync/Adaptive sync, but apparently also is now magically G-Sync compatible as well. They should probably change their product title.
*Edit June 2019* Looks like Amazon has changed the description of this product to reflect that the monitor is in fact G-sync compatible after the GTX driver update back in January. Been almost a year since I've gotten it, and still very happy with my purchase.

I give it 1 star because it died after only 7 month. Otherwise it's a great monitor.
I'll update the review if something happen.
I tried different input methods = no luck. I took away all input, and the screen is still white (doesn't show the "no input" message)... cannot access the monitor menu, obviously. My other monitor (not ASUS thank God) works just fine, so this has nothing to do with my desktop hardware or software.
Well, this is greatly disappointing. Now, I have to waste time trying to RMA this monitor to ASUS and I read horror stories for ASUS's RMA department. Great. I'll update here with results later. Wish me luck.
EDIT Dec 12th 2019: I highly recommend you stay away from ASUS. The RMA department in Markham ON "found" damage to the control buttons, so ASUS is voiding my warranty. I have picture of my pre-shipping state with no damage on the unit and showing no damage to the buttons, but the ASUS representative just emails me saying "we received the unit with damage so we're not going to fix anything unless you pay us another $400". So that's how ASUS warranty works... if something dies, they'll literally damage the unit to void your warranty. I wasted an entire evening packing the shipping box with foam and documenting everything. Very angry.
++ Sharp picture
++ Good color and high contrast
++ Default setting is bright but not glaring; easily adjustable
++ Solid body construction and very sturdy stand, very important for a monitor of this size and weight
++ Came with three cables :: HDMI, DVI, AND DP!
++ Odd placement of the buttons at the back, but otherwise easy to reach anything if needs adjusting
I'm also not too happy with the lack of color calibration options. It comes 7 gaming presets but none of them are quite what I want and it doesn't seem like you can calibrate individual settings like contrast / tint.
Anyway the monitor isn't terrible, but definitely lacks contrast and color depth, and I wouldn't have bought it knowing this. Would have stuck with another 60hz IPS panel instead or maybe shelled out for a really expensive 140hz IPS panel.
Creo que fue una mala compra, también note que de lado pierde el color a pesar de tener un ángulo de 178 de visión, las bocinas son una broma no se escuchan aunque tengas todo el volumen, tal vez si no hubiera comprado el otro monitor podría decir que este es regular pero sinceramente al comprarlos esta muy por debajo, mi antiguo monitor Asus tiene mejor colores que esté, solo lo compré porque quería más hz pero al comprar con mi otro monitor de los mismos hz clonar las pantallas y poner un juego, este monitor no tuvo la misma calidad y hasta dudo que tenga los 165 hz porque notaba muy entrecortada la imagen. No lo recomiendo mejor compra algo de más calidad
This looks great, the 144hz is completely noticeable even just moving windows around on the desktop. Feels great for games, is nice and bright and functions perfectly.
I have watched tv shows / movies on it and have zero complaints about it. I went from a cheap benq 27" monitor to this for my gaming monitor, and its great. I find games just awesome in comparison. If you have the cash to blow on it, definitely worth it
El color predeterminado para cada perfil Gaming no me agrada pero tocando unas funciones puedes adaptarlo a tu gusto. En general la calidad de imagen es de mi gusto.
El único detalle "malo" es el sonido de los altavoces integrados, pero vamos, que con audífonos o un equipo externo de audio todo va bien.
NOTA: Aunque la caja diga overclock a 155Hz no es cierto, llega a los 165Hz (obviamente con DisplayPort). Probado.
Colours are great
Many options on the monitor menu
The IPS is well worth the extra money over the TN panel
The smoothing tech dulls the colours but you can adjust them if you want or just not use it. I didn't notice a huge difference with it on or off.
I went from a 4k Samsung 75" tv to this monitor and it was completely worth it. The responses, the refresh and the colours are much better on this monitor.
Through some googleing, it seems to be an issue with this monitor recently. Several reddit posts can be found when looking up the model I purchased (VG278Q). Most people I found were having issues under 1 year since purchase.
ASUS support created a ticket to repair it, but that could be anywhere from 7-10 days.
As far as the monitor was when I was actually using it, it was great. 144hz is truly a game-changer.
However, having to go through this issue 10 months after purchasing it is a bit of an annoyance, to say the least.
The bottom line is..if you want g-sync to work you will have to pay more..much more to work with a pre RTX/10/20 series gpu
The g-sync light on the monitor wont turn red, it wont even show up in your nvidia settings unless you have the right video card, on a strix gtx980 I am s.o.l. I don't game on it anymore so I don't really care about g-sync but still you write it ON THE BOX
and no the stand does not have any lights on it..
