100000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the Asus PB258Q is 100000000:1. That's over twenty times the contrast ratio of a 5000000:1 PC monitor, which is the most frequently found contrast ratio.
A 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is in fact the best contrast ratio amongst all PC displays of this spec and age.
The worst contrast ratio across similar types of PC display is Mega Contrast.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC screens that have a 100000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the G257HU[pl_2983643_price], or the G276HLA[pl_3029124_price] both from Acer or the Neovo FM-27[plb_3011242_price] which has a better Rating.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Asus PB258Q has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other PC monitors of this age and type.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC screens with a built-in speaker currently available including the Fujitsu B27T-7[plb_1632444_price], the Philips 258B6QJEB[plb_2910808_price], or the Neovo QF-28[plb_2525363_price] which has a better Rating.
Quite Bright Display Brightness
Similar spec PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PB258Q have display brightness of between 25 cd/m² and 1,700 cd/m². At 350 candellas per square meter, the Asus PB258Q has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of a similar type and age to the PB258Q.

6 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other similar spec PC screens that came out more than a year ago, the Asus PB258Q does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this LCD screen and we think the DELL UZ2715H[plb_2323479_price], or the Philips 241P6[plb_2518920_price] which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Asus PB258Q is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the PB258Q are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the iiyama B2783QSU-B1[plb_3011412_price], or the Acer XB240H[plb_2719156_price].
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Asus PB258Q does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other similar spec LCD screens that are a comparable age to the PB258Q also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only HD HD Type
This LCD screen has a Wide Quad HD HD type, which is the most commonly found HD type on medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to it.
+3 More reasons against
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC screen has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found typical contrast ratio on flatpanel monitors of a comparable age and type to it.
The weights of flatpanel monitors of this type and age range from 2.3g to 79kg. The Asus PB258Q is quite heavy (7.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that were released one year ago.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus PB258Q
Released Over a Year Ago
This flatpanel monitor was released over a year ago.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on comparable spec PC displays that have been available for more than a year.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC monitors that have an LED Display currently available including the S27E591C[pl_2979016_price], or the U24E590D[pl_2974768_price] both from Samsung or the LG 34UM57[plb_2976363_price] which has a better Rating.
At 570.8 millimeters, the Asus PB258Q has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other PC displays of this spec and age.
If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might want to look at the G257HU[pl_2983643_price] (570mm), or the H257HU[pl_2712612_price] (570mm) both from Acer or the Philips 258B6QJEB[plb_2910808_price] (571mm) which also has a higher rating.
