To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This display is an upgrade from my HP Paviliom 25xi. Recently returned ViewSonic VG2448 because the image was not clear for 1080p.
Positives: - No noticable plastic/chemical odors - Fully adjustable Sturdy Stand - Built in power brick - Clear picture for native resolution of monitor - Fair price for what you get - No noticeable light bleeding - Good viewing angles and no noticable flickering - 16:10 aspect ratio makes the monitor look much bigger.
Negatives: - The factory sRGB setting is useless as they had to make it dim to meet Energy Star rating - Blue light reduction option is only available on the factory sRGB setting. - Restrictive menu options - Built in speakers are not good for watching movies or listening to music - Distracting Asus logo - Average black levels - No USB C Video Input - USB ports will not charge anything without a USB computer connection
I bought this monitor for photo editing in Lightroom and Photoshop and it's a very good monitor for that purpose. No need to do any calibration out of the box and it support 100% sRGB. It's not as clear as a 27" iMac monitor that my wife uses, but for the price, it does the job.
Los colores son efectivamente precisos, y tiene modos predeterminados más saturados o con menos brillo para distintos casos de uso y condiciones ambientales de luz.
La resolución de 1920x1200 es la mínima para trabajar (escribir o diseñar), si tienes otro monitor. De otra forma, para trabajo "serio", recomiendo mejor uno de al menos 1440p, aunque estén más caros.
La variedad de puertos de video es suficiente. El hub de USB es también apenas suficiente. Con 3 puertos (2 de 900mA y uno de 2A), se gana sólo 2. Conecto una webcam, impresora y receptor de ratón y teclado, sin poder utilizar el de 2A para cargar un teléfono o algo, si fuera necesario. Un multiplexor de USB es necesario para varias PCs, si no quieres estar desconectando y conectando cables.
La versión más actual (y más cara) soporta Thunderbolt, si menos cables es algo que necesitas. Este monitor lo conseguí en menos de USD$200 (a finales de Oct/2020), así que relativamente salió bien, dadas las circunstancias, con funcionalidad más limitada pero suficiente.
I'm not actually a professional who needs colour accuracy, I chose the display because Asus is fairly well known for quality control. The 1440p is a must have for 27 inches. I did some testing and there were no dead or hot pixels and very limited ips glow.
Part of what drew me to this monitor was the stand looked stable and customisable (with plenty of tilt and swivel options) which is is and that's great. But it seems to come at the cost of wobbling. Not when I type or anything, but if I were erasing some notes on my desk it would jiggle about.
The display has a lot of customizability for determining the colours and brightness that work best for you. The white point is a little warm but it's much easier on the eyes.
My only complaint with this monitor is that the stand is wobbly in comparison to my dell ultrasharp. It's not an issue at all when actually using it, but I guess if you need a rigid stand then you should buy the equivalent Dell version.
The colour is significantly better on the ProArt than my Dell U2414H and the deltaE was super low for my model. It's also a 75Hz monitor which is very noticeable when playing games and a nice bonus to have.
Soy programador y vengo de usar 2 monitores de 24" y decidí conseguir algo más grande y de mas resolución para reemplazar mi viejo Samsung con panel TN. Primero compré un ultra wide pero no me agradó para trabajar y lo regresé. Después de investigar decidí arriesgarme con éste Asus sabiendo que si lo tenía que regresar perdería más de mil pesos en gastos de importación. Sin embargo el monitor ha cumplido muy bien. No soy diseñador gráfico ni nada pero se ve excelente a mi parecer. Colores vividos y brillantes. Pero para lo que hago lo que importa es poder leer durante horas texto; gratamente Asus incluye modo de lectura que ayuda bastante y como 5 niveles de reducción de luz azul. Además viene con un hub de 4 puertos usb y una variedad de conectores de vídeo que hasta incluye dvi lo cual es una rareza en estos tiempos. En fin considero que la compra fue un gran acierto. No se que tal sea para juegos porque no juego; por eso compré un monitor de diseñador.
This monitor comes at a good price for what promises to be a high optical quality. However, I am initially discouraged for several reasons. Firstly, the two cables that came with the monitor were an HDMI and a USB distribution cable – no display port cable. Secondly, the HDMI cable was very inflexible and I could only get the monitor to work occasionally with it so I had to replace it with one of my own HDMI cable. Thirdly, I was disappointed in the stability of the mount, which compared unfavourably to my Dell monitors.
Its 60-75Hz refresh is not the best choice for gaming (ie 144Hz) but for content creation, these are excellent. Bought three so far, 2 from Amazon (now sold out), and 1 from Staples Notes: (pkg contents varies) All were sealed factory packaging 1 - VGA, USB cable, power cable with all printed material 2 - No video cable, USB cable, power cable with no black envelope containing instructions 3 - HDMI Cable, USB cable, power cable with all printed materials FAILURE: Amazon: both started up and for the first 10-15min worked okay, then one would power off for a few seconds, then back on, good for another few minutes. Dropout frequency increased with time such that by 20-30 minutes the dropout was so frequent that the monitor was more off than on. So, since Amazon was out, I bought another from Staples. Staples monitor 3rd (with HDMI cable) worked perfectly just as 2nd. --------- They calibrate the monitors at the factory but don't use people to calibrate, it's automatic. So they did not notice the drop-out because it probably took less than 1 min to test calibrate.. so I understand how it passed testing. No burn-in testing is done obviously.
I'm returning the failed monitor but am in no way disappointed with the quality of these monitors. You get about 33% more on your display (over 1080p) because of the resolution and the text is incredibly sharp. Notes: Contents changed in every unit: 1-VGA Cable, no black envelope (instructions), 2-No video Cable, 3-HDMI Cable - all 3 contained USB and power cables
You may need a better video card (GTX 1660 Ti or better) to handle QXHD resolution and video cards are hard to find right now so good luck.
EDIT: Downgraded to 1 star after discovering burn-in. It's temporary (so far) but I can't afford to wait 10 minutes for the after images to fade. As luck would have it, I had one day left on the return window so it's going back.
My purpose is app design and my intended output is srgb. Unfortunately, the srgb mode locks the brightness at 50% in order to meet Energy Star compliance. Why Asus thought sacrificing usability for the sake of a few watts is a little baffling. They recommend using rec.709 and calibrating it to srgb.
I give 3 stars for the excellent panel and the ability to turn off the bright power light.
I had this monitor for 2-3 weeks before I decided to return it. It had great accurate colors and brightness/contrast is really great (for an IPS monitor: not comparable to VA panels of course). It doesn't have extended color gamut (covers pretty much all of sRGB but not much of P3) but that may not matter to you. In the end I decided to upgrade to a bigger 32" monitor, which unfortunately has lower contrast/brightness than this PA278QV had, however I still prefer 32" for that resolution because I don't have perfect eyesight and I didn't want to use the scaling feature of windows. It features a 75Hz maximum refresh rate, which is definitely better than 60Hz if you are doing a bit of gaming on the side.
