Also the only other monitor which i was satisfied with out of about the last 10 i have had in the past 12 months was the dell s2240l which is also glossy and tempered glass, i liked them so much i bought 3 for eyefinity but with monitors being the way they are the quality control on them was terrible and literally all 3 were different sizes and the first 1 i got was better than the rest and a single 22 incher was just to small for my setup.
So to answer the question, for me it's a combination of the glossy and tempered glass, the black levels are great which i have had issues with nearly every other monitor including the asus with details being crushed in dark areas making it impossible for battlefield etc, the colors are great when calibrated, it's 1440p obviously , 1080p on this looks substantially better than on the asus as well, and the 96hz doesn't hurt either. Honestly i expected this performance from the asus.
It's early sunday morning and i haven't slept lol so i'm sorry if i rambled on or it didn't make sense, from my experience your not missing anything over owning a asus, i haven't seen the dell 1440p in action or the samsung but i THINK the samsung is a glossy tempered glass using this panel so it would look nearly identical i would imagine.
Interesting... I was actually considering the PB278Q up till now, then thought about looking for a 1440p @ 120hz capable (or close) monitor and after reading up found that these monitors are rated amongst the highest quality of being able to do so.
I'm a huge fan of gloss as I've been sporting HP w2338h's x 4 for the past 4 years. No BLB and perfect blacks across them as well as nice colors. I'm looking to upgrade to a 27" and wondering which of these panels offers the best in gloss/color capabilities, as well as I hear they're guaranteed to at least hit 100hz which I'm sure the diff between 100 and 120 is barely noticeable vice 60/120.
Originally was going to go overlord but I hear better reviews here.
Also Tempered glass vs gloss? Or is it a combined thing or what's the difference?
What I"m doing with the monitors?
Gaming , editing, work , drawing ( comics / characters, other ) 3D , and other things.
Looking @ hooking them on this http://www.wsgf.org/products/freedom-wsgf-edition-ultimate-desk-stand
horizontally of course.
Any info or suggestions on which QNIX brand to get would be greatly appreciated.
