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.
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.Edited by zinfinion - 3/4/13 at 12:44pm
