Great monitors - but Beware Multiple Versions

PurchasedFTW, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bought two of these and they are very good. There is one issue I want everyone to be aware of. Asus has a newer version of the PB278Q, the PB278QR. This is an upgraded panel of the PB278Q. I recieved one of each, and the color is different as well as the on screen menu and buttons on the monitor itself. Amazon cannot determine if what they ship you is the new version or not, as both were packaged as PB278Q.

All-Around Performer

  • Excerpt: The best way to describe this monitor is an all-around great monitor. Perfect sized monitor (27 inches) for any environment, whether you are gaming (low lag), watching movies (great color-reproduction), or just needed to connect multiple devices (VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-I & DVI-D) this is the monitor for you. Unlike most TN display panels, you won't get any weird color shifts when viewing this monitor from multiple angles.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Off-angle Viewing, Versatile
  • Cons: 60 Hz Refresh Rate

Good monitor, a bit overpriced

Amir, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a good PLS (IPS) panel with relatively low response time. I haven't found any dead or stuck pixels so far. It does need calibration. Overall I really like the monitor but with all the 4K monitors coming out and cheap Korean alternatives, this is a bit overpriced. I do have a weird problem with sometimes no signal on display port which I have to see how to fix.

It's darn good, but not perfect

TAC, Amazon
24 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm definitely not returning mine, but don't be fooled by the idea that it's just as good as $1000 monitors. When you get a deal, you should expect that there's a compromise at hand. The color is great. The brightness is great. Sharp, responsive. No dead pixels. Even coloration. There is slight ghosting, but make sure you turn off the TraceFree option! That was making me sick.

Solid Performer!

Ross Lewis, Amazon

  • Summary: The ASUS PB278Q is a solid piece of hardware. It has good colour reproduction and is relatively sharp. There was little or no distortion in the picture from all realistic viewing angles. I like that it does not fatigue my eyes like some other LED/LCDs. It also comes with a bevy of cords for connecting HDMI, DVI etc. I've used this with Photoshop and Lightroom and it's as good as it's going to get for the price.

Excellent multipurpose monitor!

Musical Cakewalker, B&H Photo
17 February 2014
  • Excerpt: My frustration with the laptop screens made me look for an LCD monitor. I researched everything from cheap monitors listed on craigslist to the ones on DELL and ASUS web sites.I had different requirements and this addresses each one of them.First, I have a home studio setup and I primarily use Cakewalk Sonar X2.It needed a higher resolution screen so that I don't spend 75% of my time scrolling up, down and sideways.
