Detailed Look

From the packaging to the monitor itself, the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM is a premium deal.

From the front of the box, the packaging will grab your eyes -- not that you would actually see this packaging, as retail shelves wouldn't have it sitting there. Buying it online and getting it at your door? You'll love the look of the box, until you rip the monitor out and throw the box away -- or put it away for storage, that is.

From the front of the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM you would think it's a ROG Strix branded gaming monitor, but it's not -- the red ring at its base elevates it in style and really adds to the premium feel of the monitor.

Funnily enough, I think the ASUS TUF Gaming VG279QM actually looks better from the back -- with that styled backing, and alien-style buttons. I really love the back of the monitor more than the front.

See what I mean? Ugh, it looks great.

Once again, that style looks SLICK and I really love it.

From the left, and the right of the monitor. It's not too thick, so I can only dream of what 3 x 280Hz monitors would be like next to each other.

The base of the monitor, where it can swivel and tilt and do all sorts of adjustments to make it perfect for you.

Cable management is nice and easy to get your desk looking neater.

ASUS uses some subtle TUF Gaming branding in the bottom right hand corner of the base.
