What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS PA279Q IPS Professional Monitor
  • The screen resolution was automatically set to 2560 x 1440 when the PC was booted.
  • Standard HD resolution which made everything sharp.
  • Perfect DP which gives 2560 x 1440px resolution.
  • 27" allows for better screen real estate when doing general office work and ideal for the light photo editing that I do.
  • Setup was straightforward, the only challenge was getting the full 2560x1440 resolution with an old graphics card.
ASUS PB27UQ Professional Monitor
  • Because of the higher resolution, tool palettes/windows are smaller giving way to larger working spaces.
  • The resolution is a great step up from 1080p and the little extra refresh of 75hz is just a nice little bonus.
  • At 2560x1440 resolution, the viewing experience is crisp.
  • For the price, build quality and obviously the 4k resolution this product is honestly the best and first 4k monitor ive ever gotten.
  • The response time is better than any other 4K display I've used, and the resolution is just amazing.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS PA279Q IPS Professional Monitor
  • It has so many great features for a web/digital/print designer.
  • The Adobe RGB spectrum was delightful with a nearly a full spectrum I could work easily and confidently in Photoshop.
  • This was the only one in this price range that had a color gamut of 99% Adobe RGB.
  • Solid performance, no problems what so ever so far.
  • The built in speakers have good bass for their size.
ASUS PB27UQ Professional Monitor
  • Speakers are alright, wouldn't say they can beat my old 24 inch TV, but it is a nice feature.
  • Comes with some neat features (Not needed Picture-in-Picture but it's there and I like that).
  • The adjustability is something I haven't had on my last monitor but adds a really handy ergonomic to the monitor.
  • I have it mounted on my VESA desk mount and it looks great next to the gaming version.
  • There are side switches to adjust the levels, rather than touchscreen, which I prefer.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS PA279Q IPS Professional Monitor
  • Not getting the full benefit of its colour space as my pc does not have the displayport connection.
  • This monitor also had a hdmi connection so I also used it to connect my PS3 up to it.
  • DP port very fast, also has USB option and sound dynamics.
  • The USB 3 hub is a great idea and works well.
  • Inputs HDMI and DVI cannot operate simultaneously.
ASUS PB27UQ Professional Monitor
  • Using either HDMI and DisplayPort, the internal speakers are perfectly fine for most things.
  • I connected the monitor to my PS4 Pro using the supplied HDMI cables.
  • I like that the connections are recessed. I can hide the cables.
  • I use the monitor with a PC (DisplayPort) and an Xbox through one of the HDMI.
  • The Power Cable supplied was an EU 2 pin standard, so i had to cut it up and replace the plug with a UK one.
