Excerpt: I use this monitor for several things, but mainly photo editing & gaming. Beautiful picture, however a little on the bright side. Even after calibration, still a little too vivid & bright for me on the game setting, but the sRGB seems to be great.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Never Freezes, Quiet, Versatile
Excerpt: The color and clarity of this monitor are fantastic. This is a great professional monitor for this price. The B&H price was almost $ cheaper than I could find it anywhere else. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because there is 1 stuck pixel.
Excerpt: Very nice, even picture. Conveniently includes DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort cables. On screen menu is easy to use. VESA mounting is a plus. PLS monitors don't have quite the same viewing angles of an IPS monitor, but this is still light years ahead of any TN panel out there.
Excerpt: I have bought 12 of these from various vendors (4) from B&H. The quality of the monitor and the picture are great. However, I have had 9 of the 12 included displayport cables stop working within two weeks.
an amazing monitor in most aspects at a reasonable price

Summary: The ASUS PB278Q, an amazing monitor in most aspects at a reasonable price. Since most people looking to buy a monitor with quick and useful info about I thought I should give out my personal experience of using it in the form of pros and cons.
Excerpt: Monitor is perfect--bright, sharp, no dead pixels, even lighting, no bleeding through of backlight. Looks good too with the all-black bezel. Only problem I had was that I connect it via HDMI, and the HDMI cable that came with the monitor was bad, caused moving red horizontal lines on the screen.
Excerpt: I'm a semi pro photographer, and have had to replace my pc and decide to purchase this monitor after reading some good reviews here. I'm glad i purchase it, Straight out of the box the monitor seems very accurate,I plan to calibrate it for color accuracy but have been using it uncalibrated...
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good At Any View Angle
Excerpt: Excellent monitor with great features. But unfortunately, i can only give 4 stars because the speakers are REALLY terrible.The rest all works very very nicely. I have this monitor hooked up through my mac using display port and my windows computer using Dual link DVI.
Great low cost alternative to an Apple Thunderbolt Display--if you use the Dual-Link Adaptor

Summary: I love the high resolution, beautiful colors, and clear text of Mac OS X Yosemite on my 27" iMac at work. So for home I wanted a monitor that would get me as close as possible to the quality of the Apple iMac display with my modest Mac Mini.
