Asus PB278Q review:

 

In the world of extreme-definition monitors, the Asus PB278Q almost perfectly hits a happy medium between features and value. I reviewed the HP ZR2740w earlier in 2012, and while that monitor offered great performance at a reasonable price, aside from...

The Asus PB278Q offers a sharp extreme-definition screen, rich color, accurate presets, and useful ergonomic options at a good price.

The monitor lacks USB inputs and its swivel mechanism is poorly implemented.

Well-priced and powerful, the Asus PB278Q is the best entry point for those seeking an extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price.

Asus PB278Q

 

Plane to Line Switching (PLS) is a relatively new panel technology developed by Samsung as an alternative to LG's popular IPS panel technology. Both technologies claim to offer very good color quality and wide viewing angles, and both are more...

Great color quality. Lots of video ports. Ergonomic stand. Wide viewing angles

A bit pricey. No auto-pivot function. No USB ports

The Asus PB278Q is a well equipped 27-inch monitor based on Plane to Line Switching (PLS) panel technology. You?ll pay more for this technology but receive awesome performance and a rich feature set in return.

ASUS PB278Q Review: An IPS Competitor Emerges

 

Every 27” panel that I have reviewed this year has had two things in common: the panel was IPS based, and it was made by LG. The vast majority of IPS panels are made by LG, and so most high-end monitors use the same panels but have major differences in...

I was very happy to see that Samsung was going to start making their own flat panels with a new technology so that someone could put some pressure on LG to innovate more or reduce prices on their panels, which only helps consumers. The new PLS panels...

Asus PB278Q

 

This Asus is great on the outside, but lacking on the inside

So is it worth its $699 MSRP? Unfortunately, no. While it performed well on all of our contrast tests—and from a design standpoint is certainly high-end—its color accuracy could stand to be improved upon. Curves were just bumpy enough to give us...

We take a look at ASUS PB278Q which has a native resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. It sports a PLS panel and comes with lot of preset modes.
