Asus PB278Q: The Official 2560x1440 Semi-Glossy PLS Thread. - Page 24

post #231 of 1295
just checked the calibration setting in page one, so forget about my question in the last post. just fired up, ghost recon and sins of solar empire, and wow! the amount of details, especially in solar empire, the universe coloring and environment is so immerse and beautiful, I am really glad I went ahead and bought this one. at first I didn`t notice much difference but once you adjust everything right and spend more time with it, you become really impressed on the amount of improvement you have desktop wise or gaming wise.

Have you tried a Bluray on it yet? The action scenes of The Avengers are really really nice on the screen. Coupled with some respectable speakers the setup makes for a pretty sweet entertainment set up.

The LED is blue when on, orange when in standby. Yes, it can be turned off through the OSD, but as shilka said, it's practically invisible. I have to lean over to check whether it's on or not.

not yet, I do have a Disney wow calibration bluray and a demo with it, I have watched a couple of videos in full HD and it looks just amazing, and seing pics in 1440p resolution is really breath taking, and here is a very nice thing I noticed, this monitor doesn`t strain the eye at all, its very comfortable to look at, and the adjustments makes it very versatile

From TFT's review, yes you can turn off the Power LED from the OSD menu.

Having no issues using the screen for hours

The only thing i don't really like is the text, sometimes is too small

Of Course, if you're looking at the net you can enlarge the text by viewing the pages at more than 100%

How is PLS vs AH-IPS? I'm not colour maniac and I won't probably even notice since this will be my first time seeing 1440p. I think I will get this ASUS over Dell U2713HM, anyone can say something to it?
Going from 21,5' TN LCD

Edit: Googled and it seems PLS is just better version of IPS
Is PWM big deal?
