Is the ASUS PB278Q any good? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Testing input lag with anything but the SMT Tool (7 Euros) or oscilloscope is pointless since the free methods available are very inaccurate and just cause confusion. If you own a display that is known to have no/low input lag like a CRT, then a subjective evaluation is much more useful if one is sensitive to input lag.

Please use the official thread which has all of the essential information, we don't need multiple ones going

Easiest input lag test (or comparison) is to use 2 monitors through a splitter. Even if you clone via Windows, i believe theres some synching going on in the background

And either take video and/or pictures as its stopwatch is running.

I tried doing this with my 27" Korean IPS (only 1 DVI-I input, no scalars) vs my 24" TN (ASUS with DVI, HDMI, VGA inputs - scalars) and they would sync up perfectly almost everything. I only had one test where the first 10 secs i had my ips winning by about 13ms. Definately wouldve liked to know if i split the signal.

I just registered to voice my eagerness to find out more about this monitor.
The magic value of the input lag is what I would very much like to find out.
I'm really eager to get a high resolution 27" screen as I currently still game with a Samsung 971P.
That's a 19" / 5:4 ratio screen with a maximum resolution of 1280x1024, so it'll be a huge step forward.

After the monitor a new motherboard, cpu, memory and graphics card will follow.

No pressure, but I'm very much looking forward to more details! thumb.gif

Welcome to OCN. thumb.gif

You should really put your sig below, if your monitor is that old then you might not have the hardware capable of running a 1440p display well.

I moved the convo up to the sticky thread on the ASUS display. TLDR version is that the monitor is jaw dropping to look at.

Still have not a single thing to complain about. Watched Bladerunner and the blacks look clean and dark. I'm not driving it with big-iron but what gaming I do on my machine I notice no issues.

As suggested I have filled in as much details as I could remember or find using tools.
It's not a monster, but not bad either in my opinion.
Graphics needs updating when I get a new monitor.
But the plan is to replace my, motherboard, cpu, memory and graphics card at once, but first the new 27" screen thumb.gif

Sorry for my incompetence, but I either don't get where you posted it or I can't find it... most likely both. tongue.gif

Your right; my bad it's not a sticky, just a formal thread conversation.

OK, thanks.
Will keep an eye on that thread as well then.

I dont know much about monitors but after having tested and messed around with my Asus PB278Q i can only say its amazing.
I bought mine primary for gaming and work and i can say it is a great monitor for work with lots of space to work on.
Its even better for gaming i have never seen my games looks this good and sharp but now i have a new problem i dont have enough power to run some of my games in 2560x1440 with a single Geforce GTX 680 lol
Ran all my benchmarks again now in 2560x1440 and this is what i got

stalker call of pripyat DX 11 2560x1440 4xAA Sun = 79 FPS

Dirt 2 and 3 refused to start wthen GTX 680 was overclocked so that is out of the box clock speeds and Devil May Cry 4 refused to work in 2560x1440 so ran the benchmark in 1920x1200
Sory for the crappy photo
