The new Designo MX Series sports an elegant and precision-crafted sundial design. Both of the MX279H and MX239H feature an edge-to-edge frameless panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle AH-IPS A+ technology for incredible visuals. Additionally, built-in ASUS SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers immersive premium audio performance.
The ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with the MX239H measuring just 14.5mm at its thinnest point; while the larger MX279H comes in at 17.5mm – thereby minimizing the desk space required. In addition, the MX Series' edge-to-edge, frameless design has a bezel thickness of only 0.8mm. This subtle but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base for the monitor. MX Series design has already garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.
The Designo MX279H and MX239H feature a 16:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit AH-IPS A+ panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any direction. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved color accuracy plus increased energy efficiency.

ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals

With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250cd/m² brightness, MX279H augments display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlighting luminance to achieve the deepest blacks and brightest whites for truly lifelike visuals.

QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get

ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale with MX279H, allowing customers to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual sizes. QuickFit Virtual Scale supports A4, letter, 8" x 10", 5" x 7", 4" x 6", 3" x 5", and 2" x 2" sizes. It also works with alignment grids for added flexibility. All can be activated via a simple designated hotkey.
These Designo MX Series displays feature ASUS SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. This ASUS-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in
pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes. The Designo MX's embedded ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip delivers incredible audio fidelity to ensure quality audio.
The Designo MX Series supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras to enrich users' entertainment experience.
