Concept to Creation
  
Precision to the Finest Detail
 
Envision bigger with 2560 x 1440 WQHD, packing four times the pixel density of 720p! New premium 16:9 wide-format PB278QR LED displays with 178 wide viewing angle panel 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, giving you true what you imagine is what you create power. HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI support WQHD natively, accentuated by room-dominating audio via twin 3W speakers. To help you stay naturally focused, ergonomic design includes tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment, plus streamlined cabling that keeps clutter off your desktop.
 
True-to-life Visuals

See Better and Wider
 
The PB278QR WQHD monitor provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 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 PB278QR, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, while better visuals are assured.

Made for Work and Play
 
The ASUS PB278QR 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. The ASUS PB278QR is undoubtedly your best choice for work and play.

Innovations That Raise the Bar

ASUS-exclusive Technologies for Stunning Image Quality
 
We’ve raised the bar by incorporating some of our proprietary technologies into the ASUS PB278QR to give you a truly vivid visual experience. The PB278QR features the new SplendidPlus™ Video Intelligence Technology that optimizes videos and images by enhancing color brightness, contrast, and sharpness. SplendidPlus™ features two new modes – Reading and Darkroom – in addition to the Scenery, Standard, Theater, sRGB, and Night View modes. Low-blue Light and Flicker-free technologies also reduce the strain on your eyes after long-time usage.
 
Reading
  
   
Creating comfortable experience as if reading actual books by adjusting the monitors color temperature and brightness levels, simulating paperback books.
 
Darkroom
 
  
Best choice for soft ambient light environment for visual pleasure.
 
Scenery
 
 
Increases the brightness range, introducing more contrast gradations and selectively tweaking color saturation for more lush landscapes.
 
Theater
 
  
Enhances the contrast and color saturation of the image delivering livelier and more vivid visuals for greater immersion.
 
sRGB
 
 
Provides the best performance for viewing graphics.
 
Game
 
 
Brings out dark, hard-to-see areas while leaving well-lit portions untouched allowing you to see opponents lurking in obscure corners.
 
Night View
 
 
Intelligently raises Y-luminance to highlight poorly-lit details, capturing each scene’s beauty in a crisp and vibrant fashion.
 
Standard
 
 
 
Delivers clear document viewing and web browsing experiences with optimized color and contrast.
 
ASUS SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology is built upon a color engine that provides 8 preset modes that allow you to adjust your display accordingly to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity to give you colors that best suit whats showing on the screen. You can access different modes via a designated hotkey.

The PB278QR also equipped with the latest ASUS display technology: ASUS EyeCare Technology. The EyeCare technology adopts new Flicker-free technology by utilizing DC adjustment backlighting, which clears out the distracted flicker shown on the screen and delivers a more comfortable viewing experience. EyeCare technology is also the basis of the Reading and Darkroom modes in SplendidPlus; these profiles effectively reduce the level of blue light, ensuring less eyestrain and healthier eyes.
 
 
 
ASUS VividPixel Technology adds to the PB287Qs crystal-clear and detailed visuals by enhancing image outlines and reducing noise bars.
