Beautiful display, stuck/non-functional buttons.

Fletcher, Amazon

  • Summary: This monitor is really bright right out of the box, but it is nothing that can't be fixed by turning down the brightness using the buttons on the monitor itself. Unfortunately, even at this price point, my monitor came with broken buttons.

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this monitor. It reviewed well, especially for gamers looking for a monitor with solid color and low/moderate lag. Yet, it seems like either QC is really off, I happened to get the "one bad unit"*, or review sites are not being thorough.

Really pretty nice, but 3 tries?

M. Hufnagel, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice monitor, seriously. However the first 2 had lint under the outside layer of the screen. Got the 3rd one, everything was perfect....for a week or so. 3 'hot ' pixels, 2 red and 1 green (very Christmas-like though) showed up one morning when I turned it on. Enough.

DON'T BUY if you are running windows 8 or 8.1. The sound won't work - EVER

  • Summary: Picture quality is spectacular however if you are running Windows 8/8.1 forget about getting any sound out of the monitor. Which REALLY SUCKS for movies and videos. I hooked it up via HDMI cable (supplied) to a new ASUS PC with factory installed graphics card and the picture just popped.

Overpriced for the low quality it is. Specs in no way line up with performance.

Derek Kent, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Physical Buttons - All Cables included (HDMI (don't use this with 1440p) DisplayPort, DVI etc - Cons: Extremely expensive. This is a mid-range/bordering on low end monitor. At this price it should be twice as good. - Terrible black levels. Blacks are mid-grey.

  • Summary: Fick min 1 v sedan. I stort nöjd, men besvärande IPS-glow ffa vid mörka färger. Även ett Tint i kanterna som går i blå temperatur/ton. påverkas också tydligt av betraktningsvinkeln. Trist är att den har ips-glow i alla 4 hörnen även när man sitter rakt framför.

  • Excerpt: Не покупайте этот монитор, расстроитесь, хотя вам решать. Я этим монитором пользоваться не смог
  • Pros: Диагональ 27 дюймов-хороший размер, разрешение 2560x1440-высокое, неплохая комплектация, больше достоинств не заметил
  • Cons: Отвратительна цветопередача, работать с графикой невозможно, цвета ядовитые неестественные, черный цвет и черным не назовешь, он с каким-то серым оттенком, а к тому-же черный цвет может иметь много оттенков, у этого монитора их нет, сильная яркость, что устают глаза,а если яркость убавить, теряет...

Monitor perfetto, ma per lavorare impossibile

Marco Manzi, amazon.it
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo monitor perche' speravo di poterci lavorare. Faccio il programmatore, e ci sono giorni in cui passo almeno 10 ore guardando il monitor. Purtroppo la fluorescenza led e' terribile per gli occhi.

PB 278 Q 27 Zoll

AS, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Hätte dieser Monitor nicht unerträgliche Lichthöfe in den Ecken gehabt, wäre er für mich der absolute Bildschirm. Das Bild ist hervorragend scharf, die Farbdarstellung in meinen Augen perfekt. Aber: siehe oben, somit zurück.
