Summary: This monitor is the best bang for the buck for 4k gaming right now. The first thing I did is upgrade skyrim to the 4k texture pack and set the monitor to Display Port 1.2. Some people have complained that the buttons that are located on the lower backside of the monitor are difficult to use, while the buttons aren't super convenient, they are easy enough to use. I was unable to use my PC at 4k. Things are just too small.
Poor firmware creates aggravating product. Do not buy Asus PB287Q.

Summary: Incredible resolution on this monitor, but with major issues. Using with a MacBook Pro (late 2013) over a mini-Displayport to Displayport 1.2 cable. The monitor loses the signal randomly, going blank, then recovering. When the MacBook resumes from sleep, the display may or may not turn back on. Using the power button doesn't get the signal back, the power cable must be yanked sometimes.
PB287Q compared side by side with ASUS VG278H - Gaming and regular Windows user experience reviewed too.

Summary: So after reading all the pros and cons that Amazon reviewers had to say about this monitor, I decided to jump ship and buy it. 1 week using it and here is my review: EXTERNAL LOOKS A- Bezel frame: Thin (~1.5cm from all sides) and with matte finish. Compared to my ASUS VG278H whose frame is a bit thicker but full reflective plastic.
4k Amazes, but at 28" it may be too small to make sense...

Summary: Absolutely Gorgeous screen, 4k amazes, and the price point (we paid $650 in Aug 2014) is excellent. The pixel density will make your photos and high resolution images look amazing, and if you have the video card to push it, games will look incredible. However, at 28 inches, your icons and on screen text will be very small without scaling (painfully small, even for young eyes). We also have a PB278, which is essentially the same size but has a lower resolution.
Superb monitor, but Mac Pro users beware (if you have the D700)

Summary: I got my Asus PB287Q 4k monitor yesterday and started using it with my Mac Pro (Late 2013). Let me tell you: I am blown away. I used it with Aperture and colours, contrast, etc. seem all to work out of the box. There is a reason, why this screen got top ratings by Tomshardware.com. Nevertheless, a few issues arise with fine-tuning the resolution, hence the 4 stars: - If used alone, I get a max resolution of 3200x1800 @ 30Hz.
Summary: GAMING ON A 4K MONITOR First, let me get this off my mind. Gaming on a 4K monitor is simply AMAZING. Period. I can’t go back to 1440p or 1080p. Ever. I’ve read reviews where people couldn’t see much difference between a 27” 1440p and a 28” 4K monitor …. GO TO THE EYE DOCTOR! During gaming, the difference is VERY pronounced. I have contacts and have fantastic vision, and the difference is staggering. EVERYTHING looks sharp.
Summary: Bought two of these babies, they are beautiful. Despite being TN panels they are bright enough and the color gamut is lively enough to be easily viewed even though I have them positioned with a window directly behind them. The stand is fantastic, especially when you compare them to the Dell or Samsung offerings with the same panel.
