i got my PB278Q yesterday but didn't have much time to use it. here's some quick initial impressions from tonight and a few cell phone shots while playing BF3.
- love the clarity of the screen. i've read a lot of posts about how great 1440 resolution is so i was expecting a lot. it's quite a bit better than i expected.
- colors are great. equally as good as the AOC i2757fh IPS you see sitting in the background in my photos. seems like gamma and shadow detail are better on the PB278Q. *i'm using tftcentral's calibrated settings and ICC profiles for each monitor. so not a very accurate assessment of color.
- input lag is a little noticeable compared to the i2757fh. or at least i think it is. i might be victim to expectation bias here. i think i feel some input lag, but i haven't had any problems in BF3 so far. in the round shown in my photos i went 27-12 KDR which is much better than i typical do. either there is no lag, or there is and it's not affecting my already ****ty reaction times. or i just had a lucky round.
- BF3 looks amazing at 2560x1440. i didn't think i would see much of a difference while gaming but i do. i'll play some more games this weekend.
- won't overclock to anything over 60hz without frame skipping. will accept up to 80Hz but it skips frames at anything over 60Hz.
- black levels and colors in general look fantastic
. after some more time with it i realize that the colors have punch without being over-saturated.edit 2: have not installed AMD Pixel Patcher so my (lack of) overclock results might not be accurate.Edited by Porter_ - 10/25/13 at 7:01am
