ASUS VG278H 3D Monitor Review
Immersing users in uncompromised 3D
The ASUS VG278H features the latest NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ technologies — 3D LightBoost doubles the 3D image brightness without increasing energy consumption; while the redesigned 3D Vision 2 glasses features a 20-percent larger viewing lens, a light-blocking visor for comfortable viewing and a more comfortable, gamer-inspired design. The VG278H allows 3D viewing of an array of entertainment options including web-based video streams, Blu-ray movies, and over 550 popular game titles. The built-in, angle-adjustable 3D Vision emitter can be aimed directly at the shutter glasses for optimized signal reception while three 3D Infrared modes (Normal / CE Compatible / LAN party) help eliminate infrared interference from surrounding electronic devices.
Trace-Free II Technology combines 120Hz refresh rates and 2ms response time to double the frames per second, resulting in vivid, ultra-smooth visuals. The VG278H also has Advanced Dual-side LCD Driving Technology that reduces LCD charging times to prevent ghosting and brightline effects to ensure clear 3D visuals during gaming or video playback.
Suited for every viewing scenarios
The VG278H has been designed with the user in mind, ASUS engineers have optimized the VG278H with Photoshop’s Gamma adjustment to create the ideal color presentations for the six most common scenarios (Theater, Night View, Scenery, Gaming, sRGB, and Standard Modes). The fully adjustable stand provides swivel, tilt, and height adjustment to give the most comfortable viewing position. The VG278H also supports a wealth of 3D sources, in addition to PC connectivity via dual-link DVI-D and D-sub, Blu-ray disc-based movies and game consoles can be connected to the VG278H through the HDMI 1.4 port.
