TBH I am getting the PG278Q. I like 4K a lot in game but going back to 60Hz is too much of a smoothness and input lag hit. This PB287Q has very good response times and low input lag (for a 60Hz) but it still feels slow and choppy compared to my 118Hz IPS. The motion blur is less on the PB287Q due to the response time so it isn't all bad. The IPS'es response time is obviously too slow for sharp 118 Hz. Very low response times, color as good or even better than this PB287Q, 120+ Hz, and at least 2560x1440 have me very interested in the PG278Q; g-sync is simply a major bonus.
I like high quality settings and I cannot handle tearing so vsync is on; even with AA off SLI Titan's cannot do better than min ~40 fps at 4K.
With vsync off the 4K@60Hz feels much better but the tearing hurts.
edit: If you were willing to turn down settings such that you could get 60+ fps (maybe not too hard with the extra card
) and run with vsync off.. I am less sure which screen I would like better. Still, the amazing smoothness and super low input lag of the PG278Q is hard to pass up for a pure gaming screen.Edited by Asmodian - 8/2/14 at 7:56pm
