9 Reasons For

Asus Flatpanel Monitors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Asus PC screens and also specifically for Asus medium monitors and found that in both cases Asus had good reviews.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most frequently found display type on medium monitors that were released around the same time as it.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an LED Display and we think the Fujitsu P24W-7 (£327.90), and the iiyama B2888UHSU (£433.16) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other PC displays of a similar age and spec to the PB287 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Asus PB287 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker to this PC monitor and we think the Philips BDM3470UP (£434.68), and the LG 29EA93 (£434.28) which has better reviews; or the Philips C272P4QPKEW (£434.39) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Very Many Display Colour Count

The least display colour count of PC displays that are a comparable age to the PB287 is 0.21M, the most is 1,100M, and the average display colour count is 100M. When compared to other medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the PB287 that we have assessed, the display colour count of the Asus PB287 of 1,073.7 million is one of the most.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Asus PB287 is a two HDMI port flatpanel monitor.

Chart Edit

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The Asus PB287 has a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) flatpanel monitor, which is the most common resolution.

A 3840 x 2160 graphics resolution is actually the best resolution across all LCD screens of a similar age and type to the PB287.

Across similar types of PC monitor the worst resolution is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The Asus PB287 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other comparable spec PC displays that are a similar age to the PB287 are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Philips 272G5DYEB (£319.99), or the Acer DA220 (£373.92); or the Samsung SMT-2232 (£358.00).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Alternative PC screens which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider include the Acer DA220 (£373.92), or the Philips 272P4 (£375.60); or the Philips C272P4QPKEW (£434.39).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Asus PB287 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the PB287 also do not have an integrated card reader.

There are a number of other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader that you might also want to look at including the UP2414Q (£439.00), or the U2713H (£349.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92).

Chart
