Wondering the same here. Is 125% the consensus? Or is leaving it at 100% the best?

Just got my PB278Q in the other day. The monitor is awesome and makes my u2412m next to it look silly.

Indeed it is a very good monitor. If you want to make it even better you should adjust setiings (brightness lvl etc.)

Super stoked! Just received my PB278q yesterday and set it up next to my PA248q. What a beauty she is :3 Playing Farcry 3 at 1440p on Ultra is such visual blissssss! Very glad I picked up a second GTX 760 for the SLI.

Wow asus just announced something really interesting. 120hz 1440p gsync monitor that looks like the updated version of this monitor. Only caveat: it is a tn panel frown.gif so I hope they will release a 60hz ips version. If that doesn't happen I hope the price of the asus pb278q will drop to the 300 euro range. Exciting time nonetheless in the monitor world.

hey guys !
Just got this monitor today and I am amazed by the resolution sooo much coming from 1080p 120Hz monitor I only dislike a bit higher input lag but that doesnt matter I knew that I am going in to.
I have very low backlight bleeding at the top of the screen in like ~5x2cm area but it is invisible in any application so I am pretty happy, also just 2 bad pixels, not completely dead but they are visible when looking very close at the screen, so also happy about that as well smile.gif
I have configured it using settings from tftcentral and used their icc profile but it seems its a bit in to yellow color, I dont know
Whad do you guys prefer ? tftcentral or front page icc/settings ?

I have mine set up next to my PA248q both using TFTcentral's icc profile and I see the same thing...just a tinge of yellow splash but nothing too horrifying for my taste lol. Just a fan-damn-tastic panel!

I'm going to give it a shot. Considering what I paid for this monitor I'd be crazy not to. Great color and picture, I can only imagine how awesome G-sync will be. When can I pick one up?

After seeing the cobble job Nvidia did on its 4k gsync demo at CES I don't see why we can't make it work in our monitors.


Check it out 3:30 into the video and you'll see what I mean
