The PB298Q display has an array of connectivity options for wide compatibility with a range of multimedia devices. Video inputs include DisplayPort, HDMI, and Dual-link DIV ports, while audio can be played through built-in 3W stereo speakers - all set for your favorite movies, hassle free.
The PB298Q also features a sturdy stand with adjustable tilt, swivel, and height, while a pivot joint allows the display to be rotated through 90° for portrait use.
Pros: I've had this monitor now for a week and it has been great! Setup was easy and I used the displayport for my connection. The picture is excellent and there were no flaws or dead pixels. The panoramic view is great, there is a lot of desktop space and I can easily arrange opened windows and not be cluttered. I also have a 27in Viewsonic 1920x1080 but it can't compare at all. The picture is clear and crisp, the resolution is excellent and regardless of how small the fonts are it is still legible. For my setup I currently run the AMD R9 270X video card and with the PB298Q it is flawless. I have read and watched reviews for this monitor but it was difficult to get a sense of scale, people's heads come in all shapes and sizes. The monitor setup is easy to adjust to your preference, with a slight push up it moves effortlessly, it can tilt comfortable and rotate 90° as described. I also love that it is seamlessly panoramic, maybe having a 3 monitor setup would be better but with a non disturbed visualization of the ultrawide landscape just makes it a very beautiful monitor. Really! It does.
Cons: As I mentioned, the height issue was a concern but it is more on the play of your visual sense because of the width. As I continue to work and game as well, the visual sense made it feel openly spacious. Especially when gaming, there is so much to see and I'm anticipating even more events in the virtual world than I did on my 27in monitor. You forget about the dimensions of the monitor and you feel more immersed (hint hint....RSI) as you venture out in the gaming world. Another issue that you may find disconcerting is the border around the monitor. It looks like it reaches to the edge but it does not, there is about a 1/4 in or maybe a 1/3 in that borders the edges.
Other Thoughts: I do plan on a 4 monitor setup, having 3 24in above the PB298Q just to have more space to work with and having designated desktops, I'm cool like that. Hope this review helps.

Best monitor ever minus the light bleed
Pros: Just got it today. The UPS guy was carrying it by the handle on the box so it is probably less likely to be "dropped" onto the porch! Excellent packaging! Super easy installation of stand and every cable you could possibly need is included. Super bright out of the box. Still need to mess with all of the settings. Not a single dead or stuck pixel!!! 2560x1080 seems to run as fast and cool as 1920x1080 with my WCed 6990. 1fps slower and 1C hotter in FurMark 1.9. No page tearing, lag, or color problems. Out of 5 games I tried so far, only 1 needed a .cfg mod for 2560. DDO works as planned (Windowed and Wiki on the same monitor). Photo editing is awesome. I love it except for the Con below
Cons: Light bleed is heavy duty in the lower left hand corner on the particular monitor I received. I'd say about an 8"Hx5"W patch unless I am looking at it from desk level with the monitor tilted up. This really bothers me because most of the software I use and the photo editing I do is with dark backgrounds or scenes + I always game with the lights off.
Other Thoughts: I might send this one back, I might not. The $559.00 doesn't bother me, light bleed does. Other than that, this is the most beautiful screen I've ever laid my eyes on or used. I might update later. Until then.....

Pros: Amazing monitor beautiful SLI BF4 is beast on this monitor.
Cons: The only cons I have is UPS is horrible when delivering packages. I opened the box and the monitor works great I noticed a couple of black spots and a couple of damage pixels. Which Newegg is the best website in the world they are sending me a brand new monitor. Plus I don't have to send off the damage monitor until I receive the new monitor.
Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg for being understanding and actually caring for the customers the best service I have ever experienced. Asus said that they couldn't do anything about it unless it had multiple damage pixels. Newegg actually helped me out and they actually care about there customers.
