PB278Q Does anyone know how many revisions it has had?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to find a replacement panel for an ASUS PB278Q.

2560x1440 monitor.

ebay shows 2 that don't look anything like the one i have.

i've taken it apart and i can attach photos when i get home.

but in the mean time, does anyone know how many revisions it has had?

also does anyone know the OEM for the panel?

I believe there were two panel types for that model. I think if you purchased it between 2012 and 2013/2014 it used a Samsung PLS panel.

Only way to know for sure is to take it apart - which I don't recommend if you are still under warranty and should proceed with warranty service.

Yeah I don't think a smashed screen is covered under warranty.

So THIS explains why (way back...must have been a year ago..) someone was complaining that two PB278Q's side by side had completely different white points and tones, and they could not be calibrated to match each other...

I know there is the original PB278Q and then a revised PB278QR that I thought was only in European markets under that model number, but may be wrong.
I believe one obvious difference is the bottom right menu buttons are labeled in letters and symbols on one and just circles on the other.

Yep - he was wondering the same thing. He bought one when it first came out (and it was a bit more expensive) and he bought another around 2015 because he loved the colors and image quality. When he found out I work for a monitor company he was asking why he couldn't get them to calibrate the same. I thought he had them plugged into different inputs, after I confirmed the monitors were both using DisplayPort I did some research and found they changed panel suppliers to AUO from the reviews I've read on the Amazon page (even thought the Amazon page still cites Samsung PLS).
