The Asus PB278Q delivers great performance at a good price

 

The Asus PB278Q is yet another well-performing 27-inch, extreme-definition monitor that falls just short of matching its strongest competition in value.

The ; 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

 

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.

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

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

Conclusion While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong color and viewing angle performance for around $500 less, and it has a highly adjustable stand and an audio input, both of which are missing from the Series...

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...

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...

ASUS PB278Q monitor: Because Full HD is just too mainstream!

 

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.

The ASUS PB278Q performed well in most of our tests and apart from minor backlight bleeding we did not really find any shortcomings with the monitor as such. Sure, it could have done with a better implemented OSD, but it is only a matter of time...

ASUS' PDB278Q monitor is a great choice for gamers, business users, or anyone who wants the best possible image quality from a reasonably-priced monitor. It has a few good preset modes, is well built, and has useful features. It's not perfect, but it's...

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.
