Asus PB287Q

 

The Asus PB287Q is a reasonably priced 28-inch Ultra High-Definition monitor that delivers stunning 4K imagery and handles fast motion with aplomb.

Relatively affordable. Outstanding Ultra High-Definition (UHD) image quality. Solid performance and feature set. Fast pixel response

So-so viewing angle performance. Slightly skewed greens. No USB ports

If you've been itching to buy an Ultra High-Definition (UHD) monitor, but have been waiting for prices to drop below the $1,000 mark, your wait is over. The Asus PB287Q ($649) impresses with its sharp UHD image quality, robust colors, and a generous...

Asus PB287Q 28-Inch 4K Monitor Review: Ultra HD For $650

 

We've seen plenty of buzz about the beauty of gaming at 3840x2160. Up until now, though, that meant spending several grand on a 4K monitor. Asus drives the price down to $650 with its 28-inch PB287Q. But are there sacrifices made in the process?

ASUS PB287Q 4K UHD 28-in Monitor Review

 

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...

So what can you expect if you purchase the ASUS PB287Q 4K monitor? In short you get an adequate screen that won't live up to IPS standards but is just good enough for the PC gamer and productivity user in all of us. You'll also get a form factor that...

Asus PB287Q

 

A 4K gaming monitor for £600. Is there a catch?

Good features for price ; Low input lag ; 60Hz over DisplayPort ; Good basic image quality

Poor vertical viewing angles ; Fussy OSD and controls ; There are cheaper 4K monitors

To the PB287Q’s credit, however, aside from ‘VividText’ the default settings look pretty good. It’s also very easily to assemble and disassemble, with a single screw to fasten the base to the monitor’s arm.

Asus PB287Q

 

Asus was among the first manufacturers to jump on the 4K monitor bandwagon, and back in October 2013 it led the charge with the wallet-crushing £3,000 Asus PQ321QE (web ID: 384841). At that price, needless to say we weren't entirely convinced, but the...

Asus delivers a giant-sized 4K monitor with good image quality and a solid fist of features for a bargain price

Asus PB287Q 4K UHD 28 inch Monitor review

 

KitGuru was one of the first websites to regularly start using an Ultra HD 4K monitor in graphics card reviews, mid 2013. We adopted the wallet sapping Asus PQ321QE and have been mighty impressed with...

Solid 4K on a budget, few quirks though

 

Good monitor but has some quirks. As others state, Displayport connection can be finicky. Mine will not connect on boot every once and awhile. Sometimes I can turn the monitor off, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on, and it will work. Otherwise I...

Decent cost for 4K entry ; Nice adjustable stand ; Great colors for TN

Can lose Displayport link at times which is annoying ; Windows 7 scaling issues with 4K (not really monitors fault)

I'm disapointed

 

I guess it a bit too early to buy 4k monitor. I really thought it would be amazing to work with a 4k monitor with this size. But finally, I'm just very disappointed about the monitor. I managed to get it work after hours (get trouble with my Optimus...

The monitor is nicely build and very adjustable. The color rendering it very nice for a TN panel

I had a hard time to get this monitor work at 4k resolution. Even now, I can't get it to work at 60Hz. I'm considering returning this item. With HDMI cable I only get 1920x1080@60hz ; When you look at the middle of the screen, you notice the color on...

What an elaborate paperweight

 

We know that ASUS knows about this issue. It's almost CERTAIN that it came up in testing (after all, native resolution and refresh is the "happy path"). Only a supreme lack of respect for their customers could have allowed ASUS to release a product...

Bright and crisp and vibrant, you'll install all your old video games again just to see how pretty they look when ratcheted up so high

If you have sleep turned on, you'll lose your DP link, and you'll have to do a ridiculous dance to get it back. If you power off the monitor (say, because you're leaving for the day, but you still want the box running), you're not likely to get your...

Whoa!

 

This thing is a beauty once you have it configured properly ; The color are so crisp when watching 4k videos, it's amazing ; Windows 8.1 scalling of fonts get this screen usable in 4K mode. Under Windows 7, the scalling is not that efficient

Getting the screen to work in DLP 1.2 for 60hertz is a manual configuration on the screen itself ; Games are not yet ready for full 4k resolution. Text item are way too small and videos are doing funky stuff
