Until cutting-edge UHD (3840×2160) displays hit the mainstream, most enthusiasts have to be content with QHD monitors at 2560x1440 pixels. In the lab today, we have two more 27-inch QHD screens: the ZR2740w from HP and the PB278Q from Asus. It seems tha...

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
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 ...

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...

Great color quality. Lots of video ports. Ergonomic stand. Wide viewing angles.
A bit pricey. No auto-pivot function. No USB ports
Design and Features Unlike the gorgeous Samsung Series 9 S27B970D, another 27-inch PLS monitor, the PB278Q is fairly plain looking. The 27-inch panel resides in a 2.8-inch thick matte black cabinet with relatively thin (0.75-inch) bezels and a thin, barel...

PLS screen has great viewing angles. Matte screen without sparkling anti-glare. Full range of adjustments for the stand
Light bleed shouldn't be an issue on a panel like this. Mode switching on HDMI makes the monitor think there is no signal. Slight banding across gradients. High power consumption in standby and off modes
Asus is the first non-Samsung brand out of the blocks with a PLS screen. The PB278Q is a 27-inch, 2560x1440 screen that attempts to bring down the price by chopping off a few of the frills along the way. Just like the , the screen can overlay a...
