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...

No problems at all + I love it!


I cannot now get used to working back with HD monitors after this 4k. Love it!

Worked fine from day 1 wit my i7-4xxx Intel CPU that has integrated graphics ; Never any issues. No dead pixels

No USB hub

Glad I waited for the models that support SST (Single Stream Transport). Playing MMO's at this resolution is amazing (and a little disorienting the first 30 minutes or so, reminds me of the first time I played). Screen Brightness is set way to high,...

Screen resolution is amazing. Feels much bigger than 28" (I'm replacing an aging Dell 30" so I was not expecting that). I was surprised and pleased to find Display Port cable included in the box (I didn't need it this time, but it was nice to have it...

Don't really like the OSD buttons mounted on the back of the unit, they work just fine but a pain to get to use to ; If you want better than 30 FPS, you will have to dig into those OSD menus to turn on Display Port 1.2 (just once)

Black Screen...


When the display shuts off after 15 minutes, sometimes I would have to restart my computer to get my display to come on. In my power settings I now never turn off my display and in my personalization settings I use a blank screen saver. This has solved...

I really would like a 32" monitor, but the price is way too high. I will wait till they come down in price

Awesome display but too small for 4K resolution


I had intended to buy at least 3 of these monitors (I have a 6 monitor stand) but after getting the first one to test, I am not so sure any more. I may have to wait for the DP 1.2 SST 4k version of the 32" displays to arrive. I am not willing to go...

Monitor has clean, crisp design, unlike other Asus monitors I've owned. 60 Hz @4K DP 1.2 (had to change in the monitor's OSD menu from 1.1 (default)) was recognized by my Supermicro WS with SLI Gigabyte GEForce GTX 770 setup without any issues and even...

Not the monitor's fault, but 28" is borderline unusable at 4k for reading text with 100% scale of the text in Windows 8. I have 10/10 vision and sitting at 2-3 feet from the monitor it was very hard to read anything below 8 point font in Word. For most...
