The PB278Q 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Monitor from ASUS is a professional grade high definition monitor with a 2560 x 1440 resolution on a 16:9 display. This WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) display gives you 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen allowing you to spread out your work. You have the ability to utilize the QuickFit Virtual Scale to preview photos and videos on the screen in their actual size ensuring you can keep your photos true to life on this large display. With a sharper image and 5ms response time you get clearer, smoother picture quality.

Connect your PB278Q to a variety of devices with a variety of ports including a DisplayPort, D-Sub port, Dual-Link DVI port, and an HDMI port. You can also take advantage of the built-in 3W speakers for audio enjoyment while playing games or watching movies. Viewing this monitor is made easier with 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, as well as tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments for increased comfort.

Enhanced Visuals

The PB278Q WQHD monitor features a PLS, LED-backlit panel that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals - equaling four times the resolution of standard 720p sets. It allows users to view greater image detail and do more with an onscreen footprint larger than that of standard displays.

The screen's 109PPI density means there are 109 RGB matrices within one inch. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the more lighting (or power) those pixels require to achieve the best visuals. However, with advanced LED backlighting on the PBQ278Q, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, even with enhanced visuals.

Made for Work and Play

The ASUS PB278Q features a PLS panel which provides an ultra-wide 178° viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes, thereby minimizing onscreen color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It is also 25% sharper than a generic 27" full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to a 5ms response time. This ensures you get lag-free experiences in movies and gaming, with the latter looking more vivid, with all in-game details shown in true color.

Native WQHD Content Support

The PB278Q features a host of connectivity options that include HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI for the native WQHD, plus D-sub for full HD 1080p content transmission. Twin built-in 3W speakers provide quality audio for a completely immersive home theater experience.

Smart Contrast Ratio

With 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio and 300cd/m² brightness, the PB278Q enhances display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve the deepest black tones and brightest whites, resulting in clear visuals that truly come to life.

QuickFit Virtual Scale

ASUS includes its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale feature with the PB278Q, allowing you to preview photos and documents on-screen in their actual size prior to printing. It can be activated via a monitor hotkey, and serves as a highly useful guide to accurately view and edit photos in their native size.

Splendid Video Intelligence Technology

Splendid Video Intelligence Technology adjusts display parameters accordingly to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity. Six preset modes (scenery, theater, sRGB, standard, and two user-customizable modes) can be quickly selected via a designated hotkey.

Ergonomic, Smart Design

The PB278Q offers a highly ergonomic and smart design that comes with tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to ensure an always-comfortable viewing and usage experience. Its smart cable management further promotes clutter-free spaces for work and enjoyment.
