A growing number of graphics professionals, gamers, and all-around power users are turning to WQHD (Wide Quad High-Definition) monitors as cost-conscious alternatives to pricey 30-inch panels, and ASUS is all too happy to oblige. The PB278Q we're looking at here slips into ASUS' Professional lineup and brings with it a 27-inch PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) panel with a 2560x1440 display and LED backlighting. At around $700 street, it's one of the least expensive 27-inch WQHD monitors available, yet it boasts some posh features, like swivel support, the ability to rotate into portrait mode, and 100 percent sRGB gamut fidelity.
One thing to keep in mind with a monitor this size is that if you plan on gaming, you'll need a relatively powerful graphics card to drive the display's pixels at the panel's native resolution. That's not something the CAD crowd necessarily has to worry about, but if your primary objective is to blow up bad guys in virtual worlds in full graphical splendor, be mindful of the 2650x1440 resolution for optimal image quality. Though any LCD can scale down to lower resolutions, things just won't look as sharp as native res.
