Pros: Beautiful screen. The monitor works perfectly and even has a mini audio-out jack, so you can pipe sound through the DisplayPort/HDMI plug and into a stereo. Fantastic.
When I plugged it in, the text was really jagged. It turns out, you can tweak the sharpness and now it's great. You can also tune lots of other things: Even the response time, and it appears to have a gaming friendly mode. Nifty.
I had to return the ASUS PB278Q due to it's crazy DisplayPort issue, which stopped me from using it with a Mac. I actually liked the ASUS screen a tiny bit more, to be honest.
Cons: Expensive, obviously. I wish the sharpness setting went in smaller increments than 25. The text is ever-so-slightly more jagged than I'd prefer, but my eyes have already stopped noticing it. I think I only noticed it because the initial factory setting was too high.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This screen is beautiful -- I love it. Zero dead pixels. The speakers are good and, most importantly, they play sound via the DisplayPort / HDMI cable. The Sound Out also works well, which can then pipe my Mac's sound via DisplayPort to my stereo.
Cons: The reason I got this screen was so that I could use multiple computers with it. When I switch from DVI back to DisplayPort, my Mac will go sorta epileptic -- continually re-recognizing that a new was plugged in.
So to switch back to my Mac, I have to unplug the DisplayPort cable, switch to the DisplayPort input on the monitor, and then quickly plug in the DisplayPort cable into my Mac. Otherwise the monitor will cutover back to my PC.
This is a pretty moronic design flaw. I switch between the computers at least once a day. I'm currently debating whether or not this is return-worthy.
