4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus is one of the superior PC display brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Asus also has good reviews for its medium monitors.

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

At 350 candellas per square meter, the Asus PG278 has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age. The average display brightness of PC screens of a comparable type and age to the PG278 is 290 cd/m², and the display brightness range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m².

Chart Edit

2560 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the Asus PG278 is 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). The resolution of all PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the PG278 ranges from 640 x 350 (worst) to 3840 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

When compared to other LCD screens that are a similar age to the PG278 that we have checked, the Asus PG278's response time of only 1 millisecond is one of the fastest. The fastest response time of medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the PG278 is 1ms, the slowest is 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Asus PG278 does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PG278 also do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus PG278 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the PG278 are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a PC monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the AOC D2769[plb_1563236_price], or the Asus VG236[plb_2030776_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most flatpanel monitors of a comparable spec and age to the PG278 do not have a built-in camera. The Asus PG278 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera including the 272P4QPJKEB[pl_2997140_price], or the 241P4QPY[pl_1398366_price] both from Philips which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Asus PG278 does not have an integrated card reader, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors that have been around for a similar time to the PG278 also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of other flatpanel monitors which also have an integrated card reader which you might want to consider including the U2713H[pl_1518815_price], or the U2413[pl_1565290_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] which also has a higher rating.
