Ok duly noted thanks!

How does this monitor stack up against the Korean monitors?

I honest think that the Korean ones are a cheap alternative for people to cheap to buy a decent one.

The PH278Q is FAR better then any of the Korean monitors out there.

I might be pulling the trigger on one today, been looking at the Korean, but cant seem to decide on one of those.

Just received my refurbished pb278q from nmicrovip. Amazing! Shipped from Canada post for $17 in less then 24 hours.
Did some pixel tests and no dead pixels. Great deal for 399.
I recommend that you go to 'reset all' in the menu as some of the default settings had been changed. So glad I didn't have to order this internationally!

No issues overclocking to 85hz on my nvidia off my T520 lenovo - http://www.tweaktown.com/tweakipedia...5hz/index.html

You might want to make sure your overclock is fine. I tried 75hz and got frame skipping.

LOL, no.

Some people buy korean ones because they overclock.

Korean monitors
+overclockable
+image quality
- stand
- warranty
- VAT for import adds to the price

Overall I think its worth only if you can't absolutely stand 60Hz and you are pro gamer (although you better stick with 120Hz 1080p then)

Asus PB278Q
+image quality
+warranty
+stand
- not overclockable

This monitor is good overall, has good price, perfect quality and stable adjustable stand and warranty, although its 60Hz.. personally I have moved to this mnitor from 120Hz TN panel and never looking back.

The Korean monitors have questionable build quality/quality control. Also keep in mind that the PB278Q uses PWM dimming.
