4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus medium monitors have good reviews on average and across all flatpanel monitors Asus is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Quite Bright Display Brightness

At 350 candellas per square meter, the Asus PG278 has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other LCD screens of a similar type and age to the PG278. The display brightness of similar spec LCD screens that have been available for a comparable time to the PG278 range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m².

Chart Edit

2560 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The Asus PG278 has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). Comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to the PG278 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Response Time

When compared to other medium monitors that have been available for around the same time as the PG278 that we have checked, the response time of the Asus PG278 of only 1 millisecond is one of the fastest. The response times of medium monitors that were released more than two years ago range from 1ms to 40ms, and the average response time is 6.1ms.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Most similar spec PC screens that have been around for a comparable time to the PG278 do not have a built-in speaker. The Asus PG278 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other PC monitors of a similar type and age to the PG278, the Asus PG278 is not 3D compatible.

PC monitors which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the AOC d2757Ph, or the Asus VG236 (£349.99) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the PG278, the Asus PG278 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

Most PC screens of a comparable type and age to the PG278 do not have an integrated card reader. The Asus PG278 is no exception to this as it too does not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC monitor to all the other PC screens with an integrated card reader and we think the U2413 (£279.00), or the U2713H (£371.00) both from DELL or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) is also worth considering.

Only HD HD Type

This PC monitor has a Wide Quad HD HD type, which is typical of many comparable spec PC displays that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 3.0 Ports

Most PC monitors of this age and spec have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Asus PG278 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
