PA279Q

  • Excerpt: I use this monitor primarily for photo and video editing. It is a great monitor, good color setting right out of box, and with a very useful speaker build into which would satisfy for most of daily uses. One thing that makes this review a fours stars instead of five stars is that there's dead pixel around mid-upper corner of the screen. I do not think this would be an acceptable condition with this price range of a professional monitor.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Dead Pixels

"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

Great Monitor

  • 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

ASUS PA279Q 27 Inch Monitor

Redtail, B&H Photo
26 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this monitor to replace a calibrated CRT monitor that I had used primarily for PhotoShop editing. I wanted to retain color accuracy, but with a larger, higher resolution monitor. First, I'm completely satisfied with the unit itself. The image quality and color accuracy is exactly what I wanted. However, the initial setup was a problem because the quick start guide, a single large sheet in 28 languages, is useless.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Color accuracy, High Resolution, Includes Hood, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Very Adjustable, Vivid Colors
  • Cons: Asus Online Forms, Useless Quick Start Guide

Beautiful monitor for photography. Be sure your video card has DisplayPort connection.

  • Summary: I think this is a great monitor. I am a photographer, and use three screens on my computer. I can see a significant difference when comparing a photo displayed on this screen next to an ordinary screen. The color space is larger, which allows much subtler gradation in color shading. One caution when connecting this monitor; On my Win 7 64bit system, I at first connected the monitor using a DVI cable.

further tech specs

the.Duke.of.URL, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: The tech specs of the monitor are seriously incomplete. Some of the eye and related problems mentioned by some reviewers may well be due to sensitivity to the PWM (pulse width modulation) used with many, though not all, LED monitors. The PWM frequency is sometimes referred to as the flicker-free frequency. Some monitors are advertised as such. though not this one. The specification relevant to this factor is the the duty cycle frequency, set as x cd/m^2.

  • Summary: To view photos is super. Inputs HDMI and DVI cannot operate simultaneously. You must physically disconnect one of them to work with the other.

  • Excerpt: Prix un peu élevé mais calibration usine avec documents. Parfait pour la photo et excellent aussi en vidéo full HD (Blu-Ray). Bref, très polyvalent.
