    ASUS today announced the Designo MX27AQ, a WQHD monitor with embedded ICEpower®, Bang & Olufsen technology for premium audio quality. This 27-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution WQHD display has 77% more screen area than similarly-sized Full HD displays, giving users the best possible audio-visual experience. The MX27AQ represents the new generation of ASUS Designo Series monitors, featuring an elegant iF Award-winning design with an edge-to-edge frameless panel, ultra-slim profile, and sundial-inspired base. MX27AQ features ASUS SonicMaster audio, incorporating ICEpower, Bang & Olufsen technology, as well as the AudioWizard function for immersive sound. ASUS Eye Care technology, with ASUS Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light technologies, reduces instances of eye strain and other damaging effects for users who spend hours in front of a computer.

    Looks like about $700 US based on UK pricing I've seen ($450 Pound things).

    500 USD but no adjustable stand or VESA holes. This better be low glow or they can keep it.

    They must feel like they're marketing this to people who have never heard of monitors with a resolution of more than 1920x1080. 2560x1440 does indeed have 77% more pixels than 1920x1080.

    More frame-less junk, cause AHVA/IPS/PLS panels should definitely use casings with inner black bezels which ruin the perceived black depth :rolleyes: Asus's undeserved popularity will allow this to compete with the similarly priced but superior (feature wise) LG 27MB85R-B ([H]ard Forum Thread).

    More exciting Crossover

    This is the third delay free, multi-input 1440p monitor along with the Dell U2715H and superior LG 27MB85R-B. The MX27AQ seems fine aside from the lack of VESA holes, frame-less casing and overly high preset gamma.
