Concept to Creation. Precision to the Finest Detail.

A new killer equipment for digital content creation and entertainment, the ASUS PB Series PB278Q LED monitor incorporates exciting performance and features demanded by professionals and designers. A colossal 27" screen size means more viewing real estate, 2560 x 1440 WQHD packs four times the pixels of 720p, so you can see more content on the screen and accomplish tasks with less mouse roll. The LED display affords 178° wide viewing angles for better productivity. ASUS exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, QuickFit Virtual Scale, and 100% sRGB fidelity ensure reality-defining color and image accuracy, complete with rich stereo sound from twin 3W speakers. An ergonomic design allows easy adjustment of tilt, swivel, pivot, and height, enabling you to enjoy the visual brilliance in extreme comforts.

  • newegg True-to-life Visuals The PB278Q features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a LED-backlit 27” WQHD display that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals – equaling four times the resolution of standard 720p sets. It allows users to view greater image detail and do more with an onscreen footprint larger than that of standard displays. The screen’s 109PPI density means there are 109 RGB matrices within one inch. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the more lighting (or power) those pixels require to achieve the best visuals. However, with advanced LED backlighting on the PB278Q, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, while better visuals are assured.
  • newegg Made for Work and Play The ASUS PB278Q provides an ultra-wide 178° viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes, thereby minimizing onscreen color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It is also about 25% sharper than a generic 27” full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 5ms (GTG) response time. This ensures you get lag-free experiences in movies and gaming, with the latter looking more vivid, with all in-game details shown in true color. The ASUS PB278Q is undoubtedly your best choice for work and play.
  • newegg QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the PB278Q, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.
  • newegg Splendid Video Intelligence Technology Driven by a precision color engine that automatically analyzes and determines the nature of your current task, Splendid Video Intelligence Technology adjusts display parameters accordingly to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity. Six preset modes (scenery, theater, sRGB, standard, and two user-customizable modes) can be quickly selected via a designated hotkey.
  • newegg Extensive Connectivity The PB278Q features a host of connectivity options that include HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, and dual-link DVI for native WQHD, plus D-sub for full HD 1080p content transmission. Twin built-in 3W speakers provide quality audio for a completely immersive home theater experience.
  • newegg Designed with You in Mind The PB278Q offers a highly ergonomic and smart design that comes with tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to ensure an always-comfortable viewing and usage experience. Its smart cable management further promotes clutter-free spaces for work and enjoyment.

1 out of 5 eggsShame

Pros: -Great Picture, what works
-Solid Stand
-The look of this monitor will make you happy.

Cons: -After RMA the first one I ordered due to dead pixels out of the box the second one has even more dead pixels.
-Second monitor I received also has figure prints behind the screen.
-Sounds like the QA for ASUS is going down hill.

Other Thoughts: For the price of this monitor I should not have such issues. 2 out of 2 have had issues. I really want to like this monitor but I won't accept one right out of the box with issues. The hassle that I have to deal with is sad. This would be a great monitor if it worked. This was going to replace my ASUS 23 inch monitor. But it likes like I will be shopping for another brand.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For what I was expecting for picture quality this does not disappoint. This is a sexy monitor. Really notice the difference coming from 1080p. No video game is a fun as when you are playing it for the first time but playing them again on this monitor makes it pretty close.

Cons: Mine came with a dead DisplayPort output. I did rule out the cable and graphics card. But I'm a sigle monitor, single graphics card guy so the DVI suits my purpose but I can't give it five eggs for that reason. Not worth the RMA since everything else is great but people should have high expectations for a product when they pay this kind of money for it.

Other Thoughts: I would like to thank Newegg customer service for honoring the Iron Egg price gaurentee even though I was a few hours past the 14-day window on my request. Could have refused technically speaking but was pleasently accomidating.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this monitor

Pros: Incredible resolution (1/3 more in all directions than 1080p). Better color than my VW266h monitors.

Cons: More expensive than low res monitors. Dot pitch is very small.

4 out of 5 eggsThe price is right.

Pros: Great price, resolution, swivels and it works beautifully with Mac OS X at full resolution.

Cons: After constant use for about three months (always on monitors), dead pixels are slowly showing up on both purchased monitors.

Other Thoughts: Great value, would probably still buy it. A bit concerned that both my screens are slowly filling with dead pixels.

2 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Bright, High Res, great color reproduction, and lots of connectivity options.

Cons: When the box arrived the tape seals were cut and re-taped. The monitor had a defect in the screen. looks like a smudge but behind the screen surface. It probably was one that was returned due to others reporting the same problem. They just shipped a defective one to me.

Other Thoughts: I would send it back but cant stand to jump thru the hoops. with I would have bought it at a store and paid more just so I would have the hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Upgrade

Pros: Went from a 32 inch 1080p IPS monitor to this. I thought the size difference would be bothersome but it's not at all. The picture quality is just so incredible at 1440p.

Cons: The shipping box is basically just a bigger and more well packaged version of what you'd find in a brick and mortar store. It advertises all over it the nice expensive monitor that is inside. I was kind of upset to see that sitting outside of my door when i came home from work. I really can't see the reason for it not being a blank box or the generic newegg shipping box.

Other Thoughts: Was worried a 780 ti wouldn't be able to hit 60 frames at 1440 but it is easily capable of doing that in every game i've tried. It's really nice not having to jack up the AA to make games look better.

Also i purchased a "better" display port cable as i read from a few reviews that the cable included was of poor build quality. I found the expensive and "better" cable to be exactly the same as the one provided by asus, in fact i switched to the provided cable because i couldn't get the other cable to properly click in to place. It's been totally fine so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNice monitor, but it broke after a week.

Pros: - The monitor is solid.
- The stand has nice angles.
- It looks nice.
- No dead pixels.
- The screen is high quality.

Cons: .....but it broke after a week. My computer was still able to detect the monitor but nothing could be displayed on the screen. Menu buttons were not working anymore even when the monitor was powered on. I had to ask for a refund.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for the Buck!!

Pros: This is great monitor for $489
chose $10 shipping and arrived in 2 days
No Dead Pixels, Clear , Crisp and brilliant color 2560x1440
4 Inputs- VGA,DP,HDMI, and DVI Dual-link with all cable provided
Monitor swivel, tilts, height, and pivots portrait mode
I bought this for an upgrade for my 5 year old 27inch 1920x1200 Hanns.G monitor!

Cons: I'm coming from a 1920x1200 27inch and the Desktop icon and Fonts were just the right size!
Going to 2560x1440 you gain far more Desktop Real Estate with the down side of everything being a little smaller!
Enlarging the Fonts in Windows looses a little of the sharpness of fonts!
Not the fault of the monitor, The implementation From Windows OS

Other Thoughts: Having 4 different inputs on monitor is convenient !!
