The premium sound system developed in cooperation with ICEpower and integrated into the monitor offers a special sound experience. The shape of the base is inspired by the look of a sundial. On the technical side, the MX279H scores with a matte display that counteracts disruptive reflections, and a particularly wide range of connectivity options.
The ASUS Designo MX279H flat screen at a glance:
- Modern, almost frameless design
- Matt 27-inch IPS display with 178 ° viewing angle
- Sheep Full HD resolution at 76 Hz refresh rate
- Integrated speakers with SonicMaster technology
- 2x HDMI, 1x VGA, 2x audio jack
The ASUS Designo MX279H combines design and function
The matt IPS display of the ASUS Designo MX279H offers a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels (Full HD) on a screen diagonal of 27 inches at a maximum frame rate of 76 Hz. With horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 178 ° and the bright LED backlight With a brightness of 250 cd / m², the screen always looks good.
But the ASUS Designo MX279H is not only a versatile monitor, but also a design object: The panel is framed almost frameless. The lower frame and the base are in silver. At the thinnest point, the ASUS Designo MX279H measures just 14.5mm, and the frame barely drops at just 0.8mm. Nevertheless, the monitor is also practical, because its base allows the optimal adjustment of the inclination. This allows the user to adjust his perspective individually and comfortably.
Rich sound despite slim silhouette
Given the slim form factor of the monitor, integrating powerful speakers into the MX279H is a real challenge. But that is exactly what the ICEpower specialists and SonicMaster technology have done. Because the display has two 32-mm speakers for a bombastic and homogeneous sound with fantastic bass performance. The loudspeakers offer a resonance space of up to 100 ml, bringing the sound performance of integrated loudspeakers to a new level and generating a power of 5 watts per channel.
Intelligent image enhancement technologies from ASUS
The ASUS QuickFit feature allows the user to display a grid on the screen. This displays the physically correct size of a document in centimeters or inches, without having to scale it. Thanks to the QuickFit function, control printouts of the document are no longer necessary. With custom color and saturation control with six different color adjustments, the user has the ability to independently adjust six colors (red, green, blue, turquoise, magenta and yellow) without affecting other colors.
Thanks to the ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) technology and a brightness of 250 cd / m², the backlight of the display is dynamically adapted to the respective lighting conditions and the contrast ratio up to 80,000,000: 1. Even in extremely dark or bright surroundings, the picture appears optimal and lifelike, especially when playing videos and movies.
Thanks to the HDMI 1.4 connection, Blu-ray Disc players or game consoles can also be connected to play content from, for example, Blu-rays. The MX279H is therefore equipped with a variety of interfaces, such as 2x HDMI and D-Sub (VGA), and also comes with an HDMI-to-DVI cable. In addition, it has a Kensington lock connection to secure the monitor against theft.
