ASUS PA278CV Reviews

2nd monitor for iMac

By Brendan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-17

After years of using a 1080 monitor as my 2nd, using this ProArt rotated 90 degrees (vertical) actually speeds up my workflow since I'm not clicking between windows all day. I can stack a script/storyboard with Finder windows, web browser, etc on the left and keep Premiere or After Effects open on the main monitor. I'm using a tray to lift the iMac up so it's the same height as the vertical ASUS. I'm connected via HDMI with no issues. Great colors, sharpness. Love it.

Great monitor

Great monitor. I had such an easy time setting up out of box. I used one usb c cable from my laptop to the monitor. My wife uses it for photo editing and I use it for music editing. Makes the DAW so much easier to use on the big screen. Great Quality picture and colors. I Highly recommend this monitor

A Monitor for Artists

Happy so far with this monitor-- used primarily for graphic arts projects. The colors are vibrant and catch the subtleties. My only disappointment so far is the UI. Using the buttons is awkward. Your Chroma Tune would be most welcome here but apparently it is not available for this model. Please update Chroma Tune.

The picture is great! However, it keeps going on and off intermittently.

Great Display

I bought this display for the colors and eye protection it offers. Unfortunately, I also found out that my eyes are sensitive to PWM using this display. It also came with just one stuck pixel but no backlight bleed issues. Daisy chain also works well as I am able to Daisy chain to the Asus PA79CV 4K monitor with 4K resolution easily. 1440p on Windows also might as well be 4K because of how sharp everything looks. Everything works as advertised, but the fact that it uses PWM makes the display hard to look at for me for extended periods of time. Eye care features do help, but it's not enough for me. If your eyes aren't sensitive to PWM this is a no brained and I highly recommend it. If they are, I recommend the 4K version of this display as it is easier to look at for long periods of time and you can get better resolution. Overall, this is an exceptional display except for its use of PWM.

Honestly for the build quality, features and function this monitor excels and exceeded my expectations. I also bought an Benq SW model which is also a 27 QHD IPS and the Asus has better uniformity, equal color accuracy out-of-the-box and build quality and I actually prefer it over the Benq. You could get two PA278CV for the price of the Benq.
