The Asus PB278Q is a monitor built for users who need precise color accuracy along with high resolution. It uses a resolution that is four times that of basic 720p HD: 2560x1440, or effectively the same amount of pixels as a grid of four 1280x720 displays. The screen itself is a PLS-type panel which provides excellent viewing angles and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut.

In addition, it has all four of the common monitor connection types - including DisplayPort - and a USB 3.0 hub built-in for easy connectivity of high-speed peripherals. Ergonomics are excellent as well, with adjustments for height and tilt angle along with the ability to pivot vertically instead of horizontally.

Finally a 27" monitor with higher than 1920x1080 resolution! The Asus PB278Q provides a whopping 2560x1440 resolution. This means you have more screen real estate to work with - allowing more side by side programs to be displayed. This monitor provides all four inputs of VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort 1.2. The HDMI input is HDMI 1.4 compatible so you can do the full 2560x1440 resolution with an HDMI cable - provided your are connecting to a graphics card that has HDMI 1.4 output. Otherwise, you could always use dual-link DVI or DisplayPort connections. For those interested in a higher color gamut, Asus lists this monitor as providing 100% sRGB color.

This monitor comes with:
(1) dual-link DVI cable
(1) VGA cable
(1) HDMI cable
(1) DisplayPort cable.

  • See Better and Wider The PB278Q WQHD monitor features a PLS, LED-backlit panel that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals - equaling four times the resolution of standard 720p sets. It allows users to view greater image detail and do more with an onscreen footprint larger than that of standard displays.
  • Made for Work and Play The ASUS PB278Q features PLS panel which provides an ultra-wide 178* viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes, thereby minimizing onscreen color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It is also about 25% sharper than a generic 27" full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 5ms (GTG) response time. This ensures you get lag-free experiences in movies and gaming, with the latter looking more vivid, with all in-game details shown in true color. The ASUS PB278Q is undoubtedly your best choice for work and play.
  • Native WQHD Content Support The PB278Q features a host of connectivity options that include HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI for native WQHD, plus D-sub for full HD 1080p content transmission. Twin built-in 3W speakers provide quality audio for a completely immersive home theater experience.

    *Better yet, ASUS bundles all cables in the box: DisplayPort, HDMI, dual-link DVI, and D-sub are all there!
    *While the PB278Q supports up to 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolutions including DVI-dual link, HDMI and DisplayPort, some graphics cards only support up to 1920 x 1200 resolution content transmission via HDMI.

  • Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals With 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) and 300cd/m(2) brightness, the PB278Q enhances display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve the deepest black tones and brightest whites, resulting in extra-clear visuals that truly come to life.
  • Designed with You in Mind The PB278Q offers a highly ergonomic and smart design that comes with tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to ensure an always-comfortable viewing and usage experience. Its smart cable management further promotes clutter-free spaces for work and enjoyment.
