ASUS PB278Q monitor: Because Full HD is just too mainstream!

Tech2
15 March 2013
  • Summary: The ASUS PB278Q performed well in most of our tests and apart from minor backlight bleeding we did not really find any shortcomings with the monitor as such. Sure, it could have done with a better implemented OSD, but it is only a matter of time getting used to it. The ergonomics and build quality are top notch. It comes at a hefty price tag of Rs 44,250.

ASUS PB278Q Review: An IPS Competitor Emerges

AnandTech
19 November 2012
  • Conclusion: I was very happy to see that Samsung was going to start making their own flat panels with a new technology so that someone could put some pressure on LG to innovate more or reduce prices on their panels, which only helps consumers. The new PLS panels should in theory excel at these higher resolutions compared to IPS because they allow more light through, which allows for smaller pixel sizes without losing light output, or needing a more complex backlighting system to...
