The performance is quite good and close to the TNT panel, however, TNT panels are faster and great for gaming. But exceptionally this monitor is also performing faster with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and 5 mm responsive time is very good delivering ultra-smooth visuals.
I personally fell for its great colors and view greater crisp and vivid visuals. ASUS PB278Q is undoubtedly the best choice for work as well as play. It doesn’t especially have any negatives to mention but to say it is not a better power consumer and don’t have an auto rotate facility. A sturdy stand is awesome. Its high resolution with greater viewing angles makes the monitor perfect for watching Blue Ray videos and even gaming. Its display alone is making me crazy….It a lovely product by ASUS.
