Summary: I would have rated it higher if it were not because of the included cables. The included HDMI cable cannot go beyond 1080P. While with the included dual link DVI cable I could set the resolution to 1440P@60Hz, I am seeing a lot of artifacts to the point that the computer is almost unusable and I had...
Summary: So I am on my 4th replacement monitor in only 2 weeks. My issue out of the box 1st Monitor- Horrible light bleed in 3 corners 2nd Monitor- Monitor made a popping sound first night then lost Display port signal 3rd Monitor- Heavy light bleed on the right side 4th Monitor- Minor light bleed, at this...
Excerpt: Good alternative to the Apple Display. Big, bright and accurate color once calibrated. The extra resolution is really great, having been used to 1920x1080 cinema displays for years. The monitor has many connections, but only the displayport will give you the highest rez (2650x1440).
Excerpt: I'm putting three stars as I've only had the monitor for a week can't fully evaluate it. I am still figuring out how to make adjustments to the big size & high resolution. It's lovely to have such large images in Lightroom but the text -- in LR and other programs -- is tiny.
2nd refurbished monitor we ordered didn't make the cut

Summary: The packaging in the second one was great, double boxed and no physical damage. The first one had a clip missing from the stand because it wasn't packaged as well as the second one. That wasn't a big deal though as it really only needed one clip and doesn't show once put together.
Summary: I received the monitor in without any instructions and all of the support stand not packaged and loose inside of the box ... easy enough to figure out how to put it together but some kind of paperwork and wrapping of the individual pieces would have been better.
The best option for the price, but as a refurbished product is not perfect

Summary: After a long review of all the posible options for a good monitor that allow QHD resolution (2560x1440), the ASIS PB278Q became as an excellent option/price. Almost all reviews mark it as a great monitor, great image, good usability and great connecting options.
Summary: Pros: beautiful color, very well adjustable, decent response time, great anti glare Cons: light bleed, dead pixel, asus rma service is absolute garbage. sent in the monitor for service for light bleeding, got it back in the exact same condition after very poor communication from customer service
Summary: I have a new MacBook Pro with a Retina screen. I've paired it with an Apple display and gotten 4k resolution, but paired with this screen the best possible resolution is 1080p. I'll upload a photo of the monitors control panel to show that result.
