If you've got a spare DVI cable laying around give it a try. You can mirror your outputs from the PC and switch the monitor input back and forth to see if either looks better and if there is any noticeable lag difference.
Ah that's a fantastic idea, and I never thought about the delay. I'm using this monitor mainly for media consumption and computer programming. So far I've not had any issues with either. I do have a few games on my Windows partition so I'll have to give those a shot too and see how they run.

EDIT: Oh and thanks for the time and effort reading my questions! thumb.gif

Sorry I haven't logged on in a while I meant different cable types so HDMI or DP.

For anyone deciding on a cable though keep in mind according to the review posted here only the DVI port is properly calibrated.

That's why I didn't want to switch do DP or HDMI. Since I edit photos on this monitor, color accuracy is important to me. At least the accuracy I can get without buying a color calibration unit. I'll try it out, maybe swap DVI cables to eliminate that as a potential cause. It's really not a big deal, but man is it annoying.

You could try a different cable type and see if you can tell the difference. I've always been bad at being able to tell what colors are proper.

i read that review but i think it might be related to the older revision of this monitor. The current version uses a different technology and i don't know if this tip aplies

Yeah I wasn't sure if the full review was updated or only certain parts.

I just bought that PB278QR and after I got it 2 days ago, I found out about that Displayport thing. I only have the option of DP since my Notebook doesn't have Dual link DVI.

So my question is: Can I achieve the same results with a colorimeter, using DVI and DP or will be Displayport always worse????

Second thing:

I noticed that in the OSD Color settings, there is no more gamma and temperature settings! WHY??? Can that be a problem if I want to calibrate the screen properly?

I bought that screen to achieve accurate colors and the more I explore, the more I am disappointed.

But I have to say that I am a newbe to colormanagement and calibration, so I have no idea if the lack of gamma and temp settings will be a serious drawback...

Thanks for all help! I am desperate somehow... :/

I'm getting this soon, I'm just going to use it through DVI cable, and install the Asus ICC profile and use the recommended settings.

Spending Mode: Standard
Brightness: 30
Contrast: Default (80)
Colour: Colour Temperature: Warm
Trace Free: 60 or 80

Asus ICC Profile

that should result in great quality correct?

Hi all just want to know if this not normal, I thought my pb278q (pls version) was always a little high on the back light bleed in one corner, but my brightness is at 100-90 for my eyes, now i come here and see it should be at like 27-35! If I use these settings the back light is better to nonexistent but I can not really see my screen. I have a note 3 as my phone and like to keep it at around 75-80 brightness indoors, so I think I might just have bad light sensitivity. I do have some bad vision and some glaucoma in my left eye so part of the peripheral vision is gone in that eye. So was just wondering if you all think this is super bright to have this panel at?

I think that's too bright, but you should use what you feel comfortable with. I use the monitor with low brightness and I also have a note 3 which I use around 25% or 30% brightness when I'm indoors.
