Today we look at the new ASUS MX27AQ – a 27 inch WQHD (2560×1440) LCD monitor. This AH-IPS panel delivers a reported 100% sRGB colour space and a 178 degree viewing angle. ASUS focus on the audio side too, with stereo speakers powered by a combination of ICEpower, a Bang & Olufsen technology, a MobileSound 3 chip and ASUS SonicMaster tuning. ASUS have incorporated their AudioWizard into the monitor itself, with four pre set modes available via an on screen menu.
The ASUS Designo MX27AQ is certainly a great looking monitor. We particularly like the ultra slim profile that measures just 1.25cm at the thinnest point with an edge to edge frame-less panel bezel thickness of only 0.1cm. Asus rate the ‘Smart Contrast Ratio’ at a whopping 100,000,000:1 and the response time, 5ms (Gray to Gray).
