Has anyone had any success with downsampling and this monitor? Been trying to downsample to 4k with no success. Been trying to reach 3840x2160

Don't know about you guys, love this monitor, but can't use it with 125% zoom

Hi, I don't know if this is the right thread for this, but can anyone tell me the info on the end of the power chord that plugs into the monitor? The voltage, amps, and any other identifiable info? I had a bunch of power chords sitting around and they got mixed together, help is much appreciated.

Trust me, I had trouble deciding which 1440p display to go with for the longest time, and I am so glad that I decided to choose the ASUS PB278Q. I can easily say that it's the best monitor that I've ever owned. Brilliant colors, high pixel density, quality stand, etc. I really don't see how anyone can go wrong with this display. Well worth the $550 I paid for it IMO.

Hi everyone,
Looking to get a new 27" monitor - I'm building a new computer and should be buying an r9 290 to play 1440p. However, I'm a complete newbie.. The monitor is holding me back from purchasing a system because I have no idea what to purchase and what to look at for a monitor!

I've been watching reviews and reading comments and this does get good feedback.

Has anyone used a QNIX and this and can compare the two? This is double the price but I don't really want to risk the half price saving on a QNIX being eBay sellers they don't have to honour warranty and also there would be a higher chance of defects after being rejected by the bigger companies.

Also, would this Asus PB278Q be better than the LG 27EA83R?
It says that the asus has 80000000:1 Contrast and the LG only has 1000:1 - This must be in different measurements right?

What are the specs a buyer should most look into when purchasing a monitor?

Thanks in advance and would really appreciate any help!
