About the launch of this latest monitor, Vinay Shetty, country head, Component Business, ASUS (India) said, “The all new ASUS PB278Q monitor is undoubtedly the best choice for professional users as well as for watching movies and gaming. With its WQHD display, users can enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen and it is also about 25% sharper than a generic 27″ full HD display. This 27″ WQHD-backlit multi-featured monitor will prove a suitable device for home and office space because of its innovative and user friendly design.

The PB278Q WQHD monitor features a PLS, LED-backlit panel that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560×1440 visuals – equaling four times the resolution of standard 720p sets. It allows users to view greater image detail and do more with an onscreen footprint larger than that of standard displays. The screen’s 109PPI density means there are 109 RGB matrices within one inch. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the more lighting (or power) those pixels require to achieve the best visuals. However, with advanced LED backlighting on the PB278Q, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, while better visuals are assured.
New premium 16:9 wide-format PB278Q LED displays with PLS panel afford 178° wide viewing angles for better productivity, opening extra multitasking space to fit more windows and projects on-screen. ASUS exclusive Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, QuickFit Virtual Scale, and 100% sRGB fidelity ensure reality-defining color and image accuracy.
The ASUS PB278Q also features PLS panel which provides an ultra-wide 178° viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes, thereby minimizing onscreen color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It is also about 25% sharper than a generic 27″ full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 5ms (GTG) response time. This ensures you get lag-free experiences in movies and gaming, with the latter looking more vivid, with all in-game details shown in true color.
