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

Pros: High resolution, lots of desktop real estate, its night and day difference to the WV246H I had from Asus. Great stand though the swivel is a bit dodgy.

Cons: Very little room for cables in the back, had to work a bit to get the DVI cable in there not a huge deal though. Dead pixel in lower right quadrant of the display on arrival, extremely visible during black screens and darker load screens of games.

Other Thoughts: This display and review would have been a 5 star had I not received it with a dead pixel. And from what it seems I'll have to be with a display with a dead pixel or without a display at all until it gets replaced, extremely infuriating considering what this thing costs, havent had issues with Asus before but there is always a first time for everything.

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

Pros: -Resolution
-Picture Quality
-Stand is solid and feels amazing on my desk, though the swivel piece is somewhat dodgy
-Looks great out of the box without any adjustments

Cons: After about a day of light use, I noticed a dead pixel in the lower right quadrant of the display, have had Asus displays for a few years now never had issues until this display. Extremely disappointing that a 500$+ display came to me with a dead pixel. This is surely a 5 egg display without a doubt, but the fact that it came with a dead pixel and I'll have to be without a display for yet at least another week while RMAing this one is infuriating.

Other Thoughts: Had some issues with neweggs shipping and tracking updates, but ended up receiving the package the Sunday after Thanksgiving, which was extremely surprising after being told that I'd have it 3 or 4 days after that.

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I53570K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Extremely fast CPU, does exactly what I expected it to do. This probably the CPU you can get for your money at the moment. There are a few others out there with more features and a higher price but unless you are using them professionally there is no reason to spend the cash, this is what you need. Will recommend this to family and friends.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Running at 29c idle on with a Hyper 212 EVO inside a Thor V2 white case, I cant rave on enough about how amazing this switch was from my old PII x4 940BE
