Summary: ASUS’ business scope does not only include PC components and notebooks, they’ve also expanded their portfolio to include things such as networking products and desktop monitors as well. The ASUS PB287Q is one such example of ASUS’ endeavour in pushing the envelope of display technology, and we’re here to take a look at what makes the monitor a great display.
Pros: Excellent colour reproduction, 60Hz refresh rate at 4K resolution via DisplayPort, Great features like Picture-by-Picture and Picture-in-Picture
Cons: Many applications don’t scale well with 4K resolution, Price
Summary: The ASUS PB287Q True 4K (UHD) Monitor retails at RM2,499, it’s not a monitor that I would recommend for work purpose mainly due to the IPS panel. As a monitor for gaming, I think it doesn’t get any better than this. If you love gaming on large screens with sharp looking visuals, then the PB287Q would be perfect, just make sure you have the graphic setup of your computer that’s able to keep up with it.
Summary: You've gathered by now that the PB287Q and monitors like it represent a new class of desktop display. If you're looking to upgrade or to build an all-new system, this monitor should definitely be on your radar. The core display technology, as we've seen, is surprisingly good for a TN panel, and Asus has wrapped a nice set of externals and extras around it. A year ago, I would have recommended a 27" IPS panel for a PC enthusiast considering this class of desktop monitor.
Summary: Let's just start with the obvious. 4K is awesome for professionals. My raw 18-megapixel photos can almost be shown at 100 percent zoom on a 4K monitor, as opposed to a 1080p monitor that just shows a small portion (less than one-fourth).
Excerpt: The growth and adoption of 4K resolution panels (most commonly 3840x2160) has really been the biggest story of the past year or so in the world of PC gaming. After a couple of TVs that ran at 3840x2160 over HDMI at 30 Hz found there way into our offices, the first real 60 Hz 4K monitor that I got some hands on time with was the ASUS PQ321Q .
