Display content at up to 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution using the PB279Q 27" 4K UHD IPS WLED-Backlit Display from ASUS. This display features In-Plane Switching (IPS) Technology, WLED backlighting, a screen size of 27", a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, an ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio of 100,000,000:1, 300 cd/m2 brightness, a 5 ms (gray to gray) response time, and a 100% sRGB wide color gamut. Using the viewing angles of 178°, the tilt angles of -5 to 20°, swivel angles of -60 to 60°, a 90° pivot, and a height adjustment of 5.9", it is possible to watch content from varying positions.

This display also features strong color reproduction with 1.07 billion colors and has 4 x HDMI inputs that have a refresh rate of 30 Hz, as well as 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 input, 1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 input, both of which have a refresh rate of 60 Hz. The HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort are also all able to display 4K UHD content at 3840 x 2160 with a pixel pitch of 0.155mm. For multimedia performance and playback, this display also features 1 x 3.5mm line-in jack, 1 x 3.5mm earphone jack, and dual 2W stereo RMS speakers. Picture-In-Picture and Picture-By-Picture are both also supported, the latter of which supports the simultaneous display of up to four UHD windows.

The PB279Q has been designed with EyeCare technology that helps the display to be flicker-free and emit low amounts of blue light. It operates using 90 - 264V at 50/60 Hz, allowing it to be used worldwide. Included is an audio cable and a power cord.

4K Ultra High Definition Visuals
The ASUS PB279Q 27" 4K UHD monitor features a 16:9 aspect ratio with a WLED display that delivers 3840 x 2160 4K UHD visuals. With a pixel density of 163 pixels-per-inch (PPI), the PB279Q has over 8 million pixels, which is up to four times the pixel density of a standard Full HD 1920 x 1080 display for extremely detailed visuals, allowing users to experience a greater onscreen display area and improved image clarity. In-Plane Switching technology affords wide viewing angles of 178° on both the horizontal and vertical planes, as well as a 100% sRGB wide color gamut for consistent color reproduction and visuals with increased realism
4K Means Seeing and Doing More
4K UHD visuals means the ASUS PB279Q lets you enjoy up to 300% more desktop space than a similarly-sized Full HD screen on which to spread out your various windows. Capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors, the PB279Q delivers outstanding color reproduction and saturation; along with a brightness of 300 cd/m2 and a 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR)
In-Plane Switching Display Technology
In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology helps enhance the performance of liquid crystal displays so color reproduction is improved. The ASUS PB279Q provides wide 178° viewing angles that minimize color shifts, so users can view the screen from virtually any angle
100% sRGB, 10-bit Colors, and 5ms Response Time
A 100% sRGB wide color gamut allows the ASUS PB279Q to consistently replicate colors in a way not seen on standard monitors, while 10-bit colors means the PB279Q provides smooth color gradations for a more natural-looking transition between hues. The PB279Q also delivers a 5 ms (gray-to-gray) fast response time and a 60 Hz refresh rate over its DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort for the fluid and responsive visuals needed to experience today's games at their fullest. When connected using an HDMI port, the PB279Q only supports a refresh rate of 30 Hz
Built-in Ports
The ASUS PB279Q features extensive connectivity options that include DisplayPort 1.2 and Mini DisplayPort for 4K UHD content support at refresh rates of up to 60 Hz. There's also four HDMI 1.4 / MHL ports which support refresh rates of up to 30 Hz which you can use to view content from your mobile device on the PB279Q while simultaneously charging the mobile device
Simultaneously View Four Input Sources on One Display
Built-in Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) functionality let you view content from up to four different 4K/UHD sources simultaneously, with the ability to switch between them, including audio, easily. PiP mode places the second input source window in one corner of the display, while PbP mode allows you to set up the input source windows in four different ways, and can support four 4K/UHD windows at the same time
ASUS-exclusive Technologies
We've incorporated some of our proprietary technologies into the ASUS PB279Q to give you a truly vivid visual experience. The PB279Q features SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology that helps optimize videos and images by enhancing color brightness, contrast, and sharpness. SplendidPlus features two new modes - Reading and Darkroom - in addition to the Scenery, Standard, Theater, sRGB, and Night View modes. Low-blue Light and Flicker-free technologies also help reduce the strain on your eyes after long periods of use.

Reading - Create a comfortable experience as if reading actual books by adjusting the monitor's color temperature and brightness levels, simulating paperback books

Darkroom - This is a good choice for a soft ambient light environment

Scenery - Increases the brightness range, introducing more contrast gradations and selectively tweaking the color saturation for more lush landscapes

Theater - Enhances the contrast and color saturation of the image, delivering livelier and more vivid visuals for greater immersion

sRGB - Provides well-suited performance for viewing graphics

Game - Brings out dark, hard-to-see areas while leaving well-lit portions untouched - allowing you to better see opponents lurking in obscure corners

Night View - Intelligently raises Y-luminance to highlight poorly lit details, capturing each scene's beauty in a crisp and vibrant fashion

Standard - Delivers clear document viewing and web browsing experiences with optimized color and contrast
ASUS SplendidPlus
ASUS SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology is built upon a color engine that provides 8 preset modes that allow you to adjust your display accordingly to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity to give you colors that best suit what's showing on the screen. You can access different modes via a designated hotkey
ASUS EyeCare
The PB279Q is also equipped with ASUS display technology: ASUS EyeCare. ASUS EyeCare adjusts direct-current (DC) levels to help reduce onscreen flicker for a more comfortable viewing experience. It is also the basis of the Reading and Darkroom modes in SplendidPlus; these profiles help to effectively reduce the level of blue light, ensuring less eye strain and healthier eyes
ASUS VividPixel
ASUS VividPixel Technology adds to the PB279Q's crystal-clear and detailed visuals by enhancing image outlines and reducing noise bars
ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale
ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale's onscreen alignment grid overlay also helps you align and preview actual-size photos and documents on screen prior to printing, thereby adding to the overall flexibility and productivity aspects of the PB279Q display.
