A review of a 1440p monitor in a world filled with 4k.
12 June 2015
Summary: In 2015, 4K is all the rage. There are plenty of displays coming in at a similar price or even less than the PB278Q! Why would I choose this one? I am using this monitor for multiple purposes, and I'm guessing that you can relate to one of them.
Excerpt: I like almost everything about this monitor. The colors are good, like the size, the controls are OK and the stand is nice and sturdy. The major thing I don't like is how bright it is. I turned the brightness down to 20% and it still hurts my eyes when I use it in low light.
Excerpt: Replaced my 22 inch at home and used that for my home office. The 22" Samsung was marginally better than the 17" Dell. The ASUS blows them both away. Crisp, good colors, good price. Was hesitant about purchasing an ASUS, but it is good quality at a decent price.
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.
