Asus PB287Q Monitor Review

 

Generation 4K. Notebookcheck tries something new and reviews the high-resolution 28-inch display Asus PB287Q. Read our review to find out whether the Ultra HD model is worth its price.

The main issue is still the enormous performance requirements. Notebook GPUs in particular have problems with the frame rates in complex titles. Even high-end chips like the GeForce GTX 980M or GTX 970M quickly drop below 30 fps in higher settings....

Asus PB287Q

 

The Asus PB287Q is a 28-inch Ultra High-Definition (UHD) monitor that delivers stunning 4K imagery and handles fast motion with aplomb, all for a reasonable price.

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.

Conclusion The Asus PB287Q does a remarkable job of displaying crystal-clear UHD content and can handle fast-action gaming smoothly and cleanly. Its viewing angle performance is noticeably better than what I've seen from most TN panels, though it still...

Asus PB287Q 28-Inch Screen LED-Lit 4k Monitor Review

 

The Asus PB287Q 4K UHD monitor is something close to a work-horse model in the slightly rarified world of ultra HD PC displays. Featuring both the superior visual clarity and sharpness of 4K resolution and a rather utilitarian design and some pared...

Affordable ; great brightness ; flexible design ; 1 ms GTG fast response time ; 10-bit color ; Great contrast

No USB ports ; Menu buttons are oddly done ; Very limited on viewing angle ; Problems with PiP audio sources. ; 4K content could look sharper

While the Asus PB287Q offers a decent package for its price and would make a very reliable office 4K monitor for basic work use and web browsing, it's not a great choice for either 4K gaming or any serious graphic design work. Furthermore, there are...

Asus PB287Q display review: Don't expect miracles from this inexpensive 4K display

 

If you absolutely need an Ultra HD display to view large images or to work on 4K video, the Asus PB287Q is an affordable, serviceable option.

Inexpensive, Ultra-high resolution

ASUS PB287Q 28-in 4K Single Stream 60Hz Monitor Review

 

The PB287Q 28-inch 4K Display is ASUS' first foray into Single-Stream Transport (SST) displays and we think they hit a home run with it!

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...
