This is correct. I'm using the HDMI cable that Asus supplies (HDMI 1.4), and it outputs 2560x1440. I'm doing so since my graphics card only has 1 DVI-D, which I'm currently using for the U2713HM.

Has anyone tried the ICC profile by TFTcentral?

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm

I still haven't received the monitor so i can't try

I used the ICC profile and adjusted the monitor setting according to TFT. Looks amazing.

I got mine tonight. My girlfriend is now convinced that we will never have sex again.

This is probably a stupid question, but as this is the first new monitor I've bought in close to 10 years, I'm kinda out of date.

I know the PB278Q comes with speakers, but I'd prefer audio from a bluray player hooked up via HDMI to come out of my external set of 2.1 speakers. I see on Asus' page for the monitor that it has a 3.5mm earphone jack. Is that ONLY for headphones, or can I hook up my external speaker to that jack as well? Anyone on here have a bluray player or games console hooked up via HDMI/Display Port and using the headphone jack for external speakers?

Other than that nagging question, this monitor looks pretty much ideal for my needs and price range, especially with all the QC issues on the Dell U2713HM I'm hearing about.

If you want you can hook up your external speaker set, granted that your speaker set only requires (1) 3.5mm jack.

I just received mine yesterday and hooked it up last night. I find the colors are great but the text is almost unreadable.
Not that the text is small, but it is just that the colors of it to the background make it almost blurry. I haven't tried any adjustments yet and will do that tonight and the days to come.
I will first try the ICC profile from TFT then use my Spyder 4 and see what that can do.

I still haven't received the monitor so i can't try

There were two profiles on TFT Central. One was from them and the other was from a user.
Actually, the recommended settings for brightness, contrast, gama, etc made everything look very dark and washed out.

After that, my Spyder 4 Elite finally showed up and I did my own calibration. It took almost 40 minutes to complete and I did not even do the advanced part.
All I can say is, what a difference. Much better at least for me. I plan on doing another calibration with the room lights turned up.

I also use the DisplayProfile.exe program that TFTCentral mentioned to quickly switch between all three profiles. My new calibration and the two from their database. Now when I switch between all three, the two from TFTCentral both look too bright with too much color.

I am sure everyone has different ideas about what looks good to them but I will attach my own calibration here if someone wants to try it.
You can get the other two from their website. Asus PB278Q.zip 2k .zip file

I had to zip the Asus PB278Q.icm file to be able to attach it.

Next to calibrate my Asus VG278HE, Viewsonic VX2835wm, and my Samsung 40 inch.
