Product Reviews
ASUS PB278Q - LED monitor - 27" is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible rendition of images The monitor lacks brightness and is way too contrasty. As a result, pictures appear darker, shadow detail is completely lost and highlights are muddy. You background images will have to be edited to adjust for the poor display of this monitor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor, old design This monitor is great all around. Old design. Other than that this is a perfect item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus LED Monitor 27" We were looking for a higher DPI monitor, and found this Asus at a great value, after testing this monitor does in fact have higher resolution than the standard 1080p monitors this is a preffered model for products and content editors that need 2560 x 1440 maximum resolution. The adjusting stand is a great feature that comes with pricier models so well worth the buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Monitor I've Ever Used! This 2K monitor is has an amazing picture. The colors and brightness were perfect right out of the box (first time I have ever gotten a monitor that I didn't adjust).The only reason this didn't get a perfect score was because I had to send the first one back due to having a large piece of dust inside the screen.Even the monitor with the piece of dust inside it had perfect color and brightness without having to adjust anything out of the box, so you could be pretty certain you're going to get an amazing looking picture from this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid replacement for applications which require Hi-res Graphics display This monitor supports dual-link DVI video, which makes it a viable replacement for the Apple Cinema HD Hi-res graphics monitor. Lots of flexibility in the connectivity,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with the choice of this monitor I bought this monitor at the different retail store, since it had lower price than CDW has: quality of the image, monitor build, response times, resolution and pixel pitch of 0.23mm was a great choice. I sit about 2.5-3' away from my monitor and this is just perfect for that distance in size of 27" ... I was researching potential 25" from Asus with 2k resolution but determined 27" would be better since I do not want my monitor to be really really close to my eyes - still need them for the rest of my life :)Warmly recommended monitor for people who are not hooked on "curved" marketing gimmicks, or 0.0001ms response time - which never turns to be truthful!!!Get it!Only con: of CDW pricing is that I got it under $400 and here is almost close to $500 - but I am sure they would do a match price if one asked for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value To get a 27 inch 2560x1440 monitor for under 500 dollars is a steal. It also works great and has the ability to rotate to vertical or horizontal. Excellent for photo work.
