[Official] Asus PB278Q & PB278QR Thread: Read the 1st Post - Page 69

post #681 of 1491
As point of reference.....the desktop icons on the upper right are where the uppermost right corner of the 1080p resolution on 144Hz monitor is. So, you do get much more real estate along with crispness and color definition on the PB278Q.

+rep thanks for the info. Probably going the 144hz route...there is a reason why you have one alongside your 278q. The pls at over 2x the cost is hard to justify for me, especially if it comes with some of the issues that people have noted in this thread.

Yup, that's the decision I made. Then when I had some extra scratch I bought the PB278Q. The VG248QE 144Hz is a GREAT display. Check the thread on that monitor to get the proper .ICM for it. It worked great on mine minus the brightness, had to tone it down from 90 to 60 and now it's perfect. At 24" it's smidge better than a 23"; 1" makes a difference or at least that's what she said. biggrin.gif

Question for you guys..

I'm currently calibrating my monitor with a Spyder 4 and it states recommended value is 120 but after it does its ambient test for my room it recommends 180.

Should I go with 120 anyway? Also, if calibrating should I bother using the settings in the original post,
Quote:
Go to the advanced settings and go to the Gain menu:

red: 47
green: 47
blue: 41

Under the Offset menu:

Red: 50
Green: 49
Blue: 57

Thanks.

Yes. I got my monitor since 4 days ago, been playing a lot on it....BF3 looks amazing at full resolution and ultra setttings, got myself a 780 ACX...so far so good, no lag noticeable...

Wondering if this monitor is worth the money you paid for it from those of you who own it. I program, browse/youtube, and play fps games (roughly an hour a day)...and yes I've had 120hz tn monitors so I'm very sensitive to input lag and motion blur. I felt like my 23" 120hz was too small for me for some of the tasks i was doing outside of gaming.

I have had this monitor for a little over a month. I got it for programming where the additional real estate was needed. For gaming, I would say it is highend and not necessary, worth is subjective though. I had a 21" Samsung which looked about the same image quality wise and cost 20 dollars. The issue was that it was 1440x900.

For games I don't play over 720p on the pb278q due to hardware requirements, however I can attest that it does look beautiful at native res in games.

Finally pulled the trigger on the PB278Q on Thursday, arrived Friday, 2 dead pixels, one in each lower corner about an inch in, also some dirt/dust/hair trapped behind the panel on the left side in two places too. Very disappointed for a £480 monitor.

As I received it on the Friday I used it a little over the weekend with the FFXIV beta test. The resolution and colour is quite simply phenomenal and the panel on the whole is one of the best I've seen. That said, blacks didn't seem very black especially when watching a dark movie. The black areas were almost illuminated, guess that's the back light bleed. Coming from a Samsung 226BW (6 years old) and it has been the best monitor I've ever owned. No dead pixels, still amazing colour and very dark blacks, no bleed.

Anyway, monitor is being collected today for RMA so I should receive a replacement before the week is out. I really hope the one is perfect but am a little concerned with the general feedback from most buyers that indicate the quality control for this model is very sub par. If the next model is bad, I may just opt for a refund and go buy a Samsung. Given my last monitor was so good very tempted to go back to them. We shall see...rolleyes.gif

Cheers Shilka, I will remain optimistic. I like to think I'm not being picky, at £480, this is the most I've ever spent on any one single component, so I was expecting a perfect product. Was collected a few hours ago so I'll cross my fingers. redface.gif

Well the Asus PB278Q is by far the best monitor i have ever had and i would never go back to a 1080P monitor

Or a TN monitor for that matter
