I Love this Monitor with my Macbook Pro

  • Excerpt: I have paired this monitor with my 13in (mid 2012) MBP for photo editing and love the results. It has made my process much more comfortable. Aside from the screen size alone, knowing the monitor will work in the AdobeRGB color space and that the color is calibrated takes such a weight off of the shoulders.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors, Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

"Plain Jane" with excellent performance

Brian Steele, B&H Photo
10 June 2014
  • Excerpt: My 8 year old Dell 2707WFP 27" monitor was starting to show its age (discoloured screen, likely due to a failing polarizing filter), so after a month or two of research, I decided to purchase the PA279Q as a replacement. The PA279Q definitely looks a bit "plain jane" next to the 2707WFP with its brushed aluminium shell and gloss black base, but it more than makes up for that in performance, which can be described in one word - WOW.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

No regrets

  • Excerpt: The LED back light has made huge reductions in eyestrain compared to the CCFL in most monitors. Color is accurate and and having two separate saved user settings in addition the the factory color space defaults is great for changing light conditions. USB3 hub is great for plugging everything in at once and speeding up backups.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Usb3, Vivid Colors

A joy to use for editing

  • Excerpt: I purchased this monitor because my 6 year old 22" Samsung was starting to fail. I wanted a color accurate monitor, since I have been spending a lot of time in Photoshop. I have been very pleased with the monitor. Specifically, if I readjust my position in front of the monitor, I do not see any change in brightness or contrast that I did with the old one. I can edit photos from any position and feel confident that these adjustments were accurate.

PA279Q 27" LED Backlit IPS Monitor by AS

  • Excerpt: This is a great monitor for any photographer/videoographer etc. the color and clearity is amazing. One thing I have noticed with most of the reviews is the misunderstanding of how to properly hook this monitor up to get the most out of it. first of all the HDMI cable will not allow you to get the most out of this monitor. Use the DisplayPort Cable. If it was a HDMI 2.0 cable then it would be able to send all the data posibal to get the most from this monitor.

Great Monitor

Adam, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Beautiful monitor with accurate color. My first monitor over 1080p and first with 10 bit color. Don't have it hooked up to a 10 bit Graphics card yet, but this monitor really shines. Love the stand too. Very sturdy, with ever adjustment you could want. The USB3 ports are a nice addition, but the SD card reader is completely useless. The card is not recognized when I insert it. I have to put the card in, turn the monitor off and on again just for the card to show up.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Card Reader Does Not Work

Great display for the price

  • Excerpt: I'm finally getting around to connecting this monitor to my brand new MacPro, and I'm so glad I chose to get this monitor. It's a great quality product, the colors are beautiful, I love the ergonomic design of it and I'm really looking forward to using it more. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is because getting it set up is somewhat challenging. As a previous reviewer said, the documention that's provided is kind of a joke.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Calibration Is Spot On, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Cords Aren't Labeled Well, Cords Are Not Labeled Wel, Patch Required, Poor Set Up Documentation, Speakers Aren't Awesome

Disappointed mac user

Slick Rick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: not sure if this should be directed at BH for not listing it as a PC monitor or at asus for the same thing. Sure your Mac system can see the monitor and project on it but it won't let you adjust the resolution, which defeats the whole purpose of getting this monitor. if you need this for professional usage on a mac, then go somewhere else.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight
