Default ASUS VG278HE 27 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review Comment Thread

The new VG278HE is supposed to be a gaming monitor like no other. It boasts a sky high 144Hz refresh rate, 27" of viewable space, great viewing angles and some of the best out-of-box colors we've ever seen from a TN panel. What it doesn't have is an included NVIDIA 3D Vision kit so pricing is kept to under $500.

At first I was excited to see what it would offer with that high of a refresh rate, but I left disappointed. I can say for certain that I will look at other monitors before I consider this one. The 1080p at 27" is an instant no for me!

I wonder what the input lag is on this unit. not talking 2'ms gtg or refresh rate lag but the actual input lag.

alot of hardcore pc gamer's place a value on that #.

GAH! Why is it always 1080P now? I'm using a computer, not a PS3.
