Product Description

ASUS VP278QG 27" Full HD 1ms Gaming Monitor




Superior Image Quality Meets Classic Elegant Design

VP278QG 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

ASUS VP278QG eliminates smearing and motion blur thanks to a 1ms response time. In addition, Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync™ technology eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates for even more seamlessly smooth gameplay.


Super smooth visuals with AMD FreeSync

ASUS VP278QG features AMD FreeSync™ technology to eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay. This gives you the upper hand in first person shooters, racing, real-time strategy and sports titles. (AMD FreeSync™ works at fresh rates ranging from 48Hz to 75Hz)


ASUS-exclusive GamePlus Technology

When it comes to design, ASUS always has customers in mind - the ASUS VP278QG features the ASUS exclusive GamePlus hotkey with crosshair, timer, FPS counter and display alignment functions to give you in-game enhancements that help you get more out of your game. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve on their gaming skills.
This function is co-developed with input from pro gamers, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.


ASUS-exclusive SplendidPlus Technologies

We've raised the bar by incorporating some of our proprietary technologies into the ASUS VP278QG to give you a truly vivid visual experience. The VP278QG 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.
