Design and Ergonomics
The Asus VG279QM TUF Gaming comes in a mostly black design, with matte plastics used for the bezel and rear enclosure. There is a silver ‘asus’ logo in the middle of the bottom bezel, and light grey logos in the bottom left for DisplayPort and HDMI. The bezels are very thin around the sides and top but it’s not a common “borderless” design here, although the total black edges are on this screen are thin overall. There is an 8mm black plastic edge and then an additional 2mm black panel border before the image starts on the sides and top. The bottom of the screen has a thicker 13mm plastic bezel + 2mm black panel border. There is a thin white power LED strip located on the bottom right hand edge of the screen which is out of sight from a normal viewing position.
The back of the screen is encased in a matte black plastic for a simple design. The stand comes ready attached in the box, you need only screw on the foot. This stand can be removed as well, but would need to be unscrewed as there is no quick release mechanism. Behind that there are VESA 100mm mounting holes if you’d rather. The arm for the stand is also a matte black plastic with a cable tidy hole in the back. There is a small section of red plastic trim around the base of the arm as you can see from the first photo. The base of the stand is a matte black plastic as well and provides a decent and sturdy foot for the screen.
Asus VG279QM TUF Gaming The stand offers a good range of ergonomic adjustments. Tilt provides a very wide range of adjustment and is smooth and easy to operate. Height is also smooth and easy, and provides a wide adjustment range as well. It can be lowered to basically sit on the foot of the stand, and at the lowest setting the bottom edge of the screen is only 10mm from the desk. At maximum extension it’s 140mm which provides a decent 130mm adjustment range for the height adjustment as advertised. Side to side swivel is smooth and easy to move, and a rotation function is available, although a little “bumpy” to operate. The screen remains very stable when you are moving it around thanks to the solid and sturdy base.
