Description

Precision to the Finest Detail: Professional 27" 16:9 2560 x 1440 WQHD LED-backlit Monitor

Impeccable lifelike visuals with 27" 16:9 2560 x 1440 with 100% sRGB 178° wide-viewing angle Extensive connectivity with native WQHD content support with HDMI, DisplayPort, and Dual-link DVI ASUS-exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale and Splendid Video Intelligence Technology for true `what you see is what you get' Ergonomic tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment plus smart cable management.

Concept to Creation

Precision to the Finest Detail

Envision bigger with 2560 x 1440 WQHD, packing four times the pixel density of 720p! New premium 16:9 wide-format PB278Q LED displays afford 178° wide viewing angles for better productivity, opening extra multitasking space to fit more windows and projects on-screen. ASUS exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, QuickFit Virtual Scale, and 100% sRGB fidelity ensure reality-defining color and image accuracy, giving you true "what you imagine is what you create" power. HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, and dual-link DVI support WQHD natively, accentuated by room-dominating audio via twin 3W speakers. To help you stay naturally focused, ergonomic design includes tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment, plus streamlined cabling that keeps clutter off your desktop.

True-to-life Visuals

See Better and Wider

The PB278Q features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a LED-backlit 27" WQHD display 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 PB278Q, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, while better visuals are assured.

Made for Work and Play

The ASUS PB278Q features 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 about 25% sharper than a generic 27" full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 5ms (GTG) 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. The ASUS PB278Q is undoubtedly your best choice for work and play.

Extensive Connectivity

Native WQHD Content Support

The PB278Q features a host of connectivity options that include HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI for 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.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design

Smart Contrast Ratio for lifelike visuals

With 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) 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 extra-clear visuals that truly come to life.

QuickFit Virtual Scale for true what you see is what you get

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

Driven by a precision color engine that automatically analyzes and determines the nature of your current task, 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.

Designed with You in Mind

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
