Fairly Bright Display Brightness
Across all the comparable spec PC screens that came out around the same time as the PB277Q the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². The Asus PB277Q has one of the brighter display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) amongst medium monitors of this age.

The highest resolution of the Asus PB277Q is 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) (which is also found on this LCD screen).

11 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker
The Asus PB277Q does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other latest medium monitors.
We compared this LCD screen to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the iiyama GB2783QSU[plb_3810040_price] or the Acer XZ271[plb_3627462_price], or the LG 24MT58DF[plb_3372678_price] are also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Asus PB277Q is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other new medium monitors are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price].
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Like most of the other latest comparable spec LCD screens, the Asus PB277Q does not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
Like most of the other PC displays that are a comparable age to the PB277Q, the Asus PB277Q does not have an integrated card reader.

LCD Display Type
The Asus PB277Q has a better display type than most PC screens that have been on the market for the last year. This flatpanel monitor has an LCD display type, whereas most new medium monitors have an LED display type.
