Killer Pro Photo & Graphics Monitor
I personally would recommend this monitor to anyone needing to see truly accurate photos and graphics in their work. I will also tell you everything else looks wonderful as well. All my email, word processing, spreadsheet and browser programs shine with clear and very sharp, accurate, super readable fonts. The extra real estate I get with my Windows 7 Pro desktop is greatly appreciated as well. It's native 1920 x 1200 resolution is a joy.
Great color quality
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.
I now have three of these monitors and am very satisfied with them. No dead pixels, no backlight leakage, just high quality displays. You will have to manually calibrate them, as color accuracy out of the box isn't great. You'll easily notice it if they're side-by-side. But that's pretty trivial to do. I also have two 30" much more expensive WQHD Dells and I actually prefer these. I have two plugged into my Macbook Retina Pro and they really provide a desktop experience.
Excellent picture quality pre- and post-calibration
ASUS's PDB278Q monitor is a great choice for gamers, business users, or anyone who wants the best possible image quality from a reasonably-priced monitor. It has a few good preset modes, is well built, and has useful features. It's not perfect, but it's a good value PLS panel.
Very nice 27 inch display
The ASUS PB278Q is a very nice 27" display, and is a good debut for PLS but not an outstanding one. Perhaps if used in one of the ASUS ProArt models with higher end calibration and backlighting we could see if PLS can offer superior, not just equal, performance to IPS panels. Hopefully this marks the start of a race for features and performance in higher end LCD panels that will benefit consumers.
Great colour quality
While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong colour and viewing angle performance for around £250 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, which the PB278Q lacks.
Solid and Innovative
I'm quite satisfied with the performance of my S2340T both as a touch screen, and as a monitor generally. The monitor has a glossy, bright screen that's been easy on my eyes.
Setup was simple, and complete in two minutes: remove screen from packaging, plug in power cord to wall and to monitor base, connect USB 3 cable to monitor base and to computer, and connect HDMI cable to monitor base and to computer.
Excellent viewing angles
Viewsonic's VP2765-LED is aimed at graphics professionals and uses a AMVA panel rather than the IPS screens used in many trendy products of late. However, you don't lose out much in image quality, with vibrant colour, good contrast and great viewing angles. The 1080p resolution feels a little low given its intended audience, and response time is a little slow for the gaming crowd, but excellent build and the high-quality panel make it worthy of a place on the audition list.
Consistent brightness and color at extreme viewing angles.
The sting of the VP2765 AMVA LED LCD Display's list price (of over $700) is modified by a street price of around $500. Certainly this is a bit more than some other monitors in its size range and probably is due to the AVMA's technology (being new, it's at a premium for now, I suppose). Still the extra bit paid for the VP2765 AMVA LED LCD Display results in the computer user having a high-quality, very large screen monitor that can compliment any workstation or home computer user's setup.
Another strong sub-£200 flat-panel, and this one offers copious screen space. It isn't always the easiest to operate, and its design tends towards the basic. But its given green credentials, lean casing and carefully weighted colour palette make it a very appetising buy, and a snip at a mere £155.
Decent image quality
Offering decent image quality at a low price, the Viewsonic VX2453mh-LED enters an aggressive part of the market with an aggressively-specced monitor. The 30,000,000:1 contrast ratio is of course nonsense, but the dual HDMI inputs and a stand that lets it sit flush with a work surface or stand up like a standard computer screen give it a few worthwhile advantages over budget rivals.
its maximum brightness was more than sufficient in a bright office on a sunny day.
The bottom line: The Samsung T220 might be the most stylish LCD monitor we've seen, but average feature set and performance diminish its overall appeal. Despite its flashy looks, it's best used as a simple, productivity display.
