Also I am wondering if Dell u2711 is a better monitor than the Asus PB278Q.

Korean displays don't have scalers, thus have lower input latency. The U2713HM would be a better choice over the U2711. Unless you actually want 10-bit, then go with the U2713H. The U2711 is fluorescent backlit, as well it has one of the heaviest AG coatings.

10 bit or 8 bit wouldnt probably make any difference while gaming right?

 

I am selling my Yamakasi and my first thought was grabbing a 1600p Korean monitor.

 

However I am thinking of getting a monitor with HDMI for possible playstation 4 purchase in the future. Therefor I am leaning towards the Asus BP278Q.

 

A review site claimed that though Asus PB278Q's image quality, although great, not as good as Dell U2711. I am wondering if this is true as well.

honestly won't be much difference except for if they have anti glare or not, or plastic over the panel or not. just nitpicky things. either way can't go wrong with any but alot of people hate dell's anti glare filters

Thanks again.

 

What about Asus PB278Q?

 

Does it also have the anti glare filter like the Dell?

 

Also if anti glare filters have such bad reviews from most users, why do companies insist on having them applied to the monitors?

because of florescent lights in work place/schools is my guess since that's dell's primary focus.

the asus is fine too. it comes "precalibrated" but big whoop. I wouldn't get rid of a korean for it imo. If I was you I would just get multi input crossover or another korean monitor if you really want to play consoles on these monitors.

that is also another possibility but the prices of multi input Koreans are a bit higher than the normal ones.

 

I can't really decide.

10-bit results in wrong colors, super saturated reds mostly, but greens and blues will be off as well. For gaming you almost always want to stick to 8-bit. If you really desire odd saturation, you can easily accomplish that with your GPU driver's control panel.

As far as the U2711 vs the PB287Q, that is 10-bit vs 8-bit, and the reviewer probably mistakenly thought more saturated equals better.

And for antiglare, the Asus has a very light AG coating, like most of the current displays. I personally prefer antiglare, I can't handle reflections on my screen.

I tried an Asus PB287Q and the colors and responsiveness were great. I am extremely sensitive to flicker though, and since it uses PWM I had to return it. As well, it had 4 dead pixels and what looked like a speck of dirt trapped under the screen. And crazy backlight bleed. If it had had none of those issues and used constant current dimming I would have been fine with it. There have been quite a few reports of poor quality control, so you might want to check into that before making any decisions.

As you can see by MenacingTuba's post, it's not just Asus, but all the name brand manufacturers seem to be having quality issues with their 27" 2560x1440 models right now.

Here is my take on this, and it could be all wrong. I have 3 1080P monitors at my work desk with your typical office lighting all around and I can see how having the anti glare filter can be helpful and honestly I'm glad that my dell monitors have that.

At home where my computer sits I only have maybe 2 lamps in the room and in that situation when I had the dell 1200P IPS with the anti glare filter made the image look a lil dull (not sure how to describe it the right way). Now that I have the Auria IPS it looks good in my room as there are not many light sources to cause any glare at all, and the image looks sharper thanks to the lack of the filter.

Thanks once again

 

BTW +rep to both of you guys

 

So the only concern for me seems the flicker. Is this a common issue with all of these monitors?

 

These monitors just came to Turkey (Asus PB278q) and I am guessing these might be a new batch hopefully with resolved issues.

So you definitely saw the difference between anti glare and a non anti glare IPS panel?

 

I am also sensitive to these little things as well.

 

Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions.
