Just ordered Asus PB278Q

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've ordered the PB278Q in preference to the Dell U2713HM after many hours of research. I hadn't realised monitors could potentially have so many problems and I don't feel confidant in being able to check everything. Is there a "dummies guide" that someone could link me to? I'm not looking for problems but I wan't to feel confidant after the window on returns has closed. If it goes pop afterwards, that's sods law but I'd rather find out before.
Thanks in advance.
I thought I'd posted in the Official Asus PB278Q thread; I have now.

You don't really have to check so much. What I usually do when I get a new monitor is to open Paint, and make several pictures with solid colors like black, white, green, blue and red. Make the picture in the original resolution of your monitor and run them full screen. This way you can see if you have any dead or stuck pixels easily.
Proceed to check that all the buttons work and that the cables are fine. Also check that your monitor doesn't have scratches/bumps from shipping.

Other than that there is no need to test more really and everything should work fine wink.gif
