Finally we have Asus' new 3D gaming monitor with a 3D Vision IR transmitter built into it, the VG278H. This continues where the VG236H left off and kicks things up a notch. The VG236H was Asus first 3D Vision display, although it wasn't without faults, the major bugbear being the external IR transmitter which was rather large and chunky which made it hard to position properly. The VG278H has corrected this by having a built in IR transmitter in the top of the screen in a little module that looks almost identical to the one Asus has fitted webcameras into in the past on other monitor lines. This simple design removes the problem of positioning the IR transmitter and it clears up desk space at the same time.
Overall we were impressed by Asus new display line-up and it looks like the company is getting more serious in the monitor business. The biggest challenge for Asus now, especially in the professional monitor market space is to prove that its displays can hold their own against the likes of Eizo, Dell, HP and NEC which is likely to be a tough challenge, despite displays lie the PA246Q costing half that of many competing models. The PA238Q and VG278H are both expected to arrive towards the end of this quarter and we'll hopefully see some additional models being announced at Computex.http://vr-zone.com/articles/eyes-on-asu ... 862-3.html
