  • Well-priced and powerful, the Asus PB278Q is the best entry point for those seeking an extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price.


  • While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong color and viewing angle performance for around $500 less, and it has a highly adjustable stand and an audio input, both of which are missing from the Series 9. The Series 9 has a USB hub, however, while the PB278Q doesn't. The IPS-based Dell UltraSharp 2713HM offers similar performance and a more robust feature set at a competitive price, which is why it remains our Editors' Choice for big-screen monitors.


  • Asus' PB278Q is quite nice indeed for the price, offering a no-frills premium panel for those who are looking to save pennies.


  • The Asus VG278H has great 3D performance and a fast refresh rate, but is just a bit too expensive for what it offers.


  • Factoring in the premium for the new LightBoost tech and LED backlighting, the £120 glasses thrown in, and the 27 inches of panel, the Asus VG278H certainly isn't a rip-off. For 3D lovers, this is a must-have, and for sceptics this could be a game-changer.


  • Overall, the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 (in conjunction with the ASUS VG278H) isn't perfect, but it performs much better than its predecessor. The Full HD 3D movie and game playback are realistic. The large glasses and large screen size expand the field of view, making for a more immersive 3D experience. The flicker, though, is a sore point; we can't recommend watching 3D visuals for more than a few minutes.
