Asus ProArt PA279Q review

 

This translates to a dot pitch of 0.233 mm, and a pixels-per-inch density of 108 ppi. The listed response time of 6 ms suggests it should be fine for gamers as well as graphics professionals.

Although 24-inch 1080p IPS displays are now available under £200, good-quality 27-inch consumer panels are still a fair bit more expensive. Therefore there's not too much of a price difference between those screens and the Asus PA279Q. For the extra...

Asus PA279Q

 

No dead pixels! uniform screen, bright, clear, crisp text, colours are very vivid, wide view angle and does not strain eyes even after long usage. OSD navigation is good using the little mouse button.

Crashes when changing inputs if audio is on, requires power cycle. Only one DisplayPort input and front buttons are a little fiddly especially if you change inputs regularly. Also powers down way too quickly, i.e. during boot up or input cycling (might...

Amazing for photos with Adobe RGB or even using your own custom definition.

Lack of information prior to purchase about HDMI not supporting full screen mode on the 27" screen. DPort and DVI connections are good
