ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Frame rates and ghosting are not an issue if you play World of Warcraft. The extra resolution gives you playing space for raiding that you can only dream of. With a gtx660 the frames are always over 100.

Cons: Price

ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I have always owned TN panels or some version of TN quality. This is my first PLS panel. I have 5 other different panels. The other panels all look like they have muted colors compared to this PLS monitor. It difference is shocking. The other monitors are not as crisp and smooth as this monitor. The ultra HD is a whole new level compared to HD is clarity and picture. After seeing the difference in PLS vs TN it will be very hard to go back to TN. My asus g750 has a brand new top of the line TN panel and it is no where near the quality of the PLS.

Cons: Price.
If you have windows 7 you will want to upgrade to 8.1 or soon to 10.
The power plug and display port were very hard to get in. It was not a matter of space. The fit was very tight in the actual plugs. I was worried I would break something trying to get the plugs in.

Other Thoughts: This monitor twists and turns in every direction you can think of. It can be raised very high or lowered very low. This is the most versatile monitor i have ever seen.

Pros: With windows 8.1 it auto installs. I did not use the drivers on the CD for windows 8. Read the reasons why in the Cons. Windows 7 and older did not auto install. With any other operating system you must use the CD that comes with it. I have a three story house with a wireless router on the top floor. I get full bars and can stream 1089p video in the basement. This is very surprising considering it is a nano adapter.

Cons: The webpage for the company is slow. The drivers are years old on their site. Checking the site in August 2014 I find the latest driver update from 2012 for a product that was just recently made available.

Other Thoughts: The only con for this product makes me fear that this company will not offer windows 9 drivers. Given the relatively cheap cost it still might be worth it over the named brands. A name brand costs five times more. Thus, buying new ones is still cheaper.
