Asus PB278Q Features

  • The PB278Q WQHD monitor features a PLS, LED-backlit panel that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals-equaling four times the resolution of standard 720p sets
  • The screen's 109PPI density means there are 109 RGB matrices within one inch. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the more lighting those pixels require to achieve the best visuals
  • The ASUS PB278Q features a PLS panel which provides an ultra-wide 178deg. viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes, thereby minimizing onscreen color shift even when viewed from extreme angles

  • With 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio and 300cd/m2 brightness, the PB278Q enhances display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve the deepest black tones and brightest whites, resulting in clear visuals that truly come to life
