The product is amazing in terms of over all looks, mount and ease of installation. This is a classic best in class 60Hz. support is obviously pretty important for games, as is the claimed 1ms grey-to-grey response time. Other base specs include a claimed native contrast of 1,000:1, 300 nits peak brightness and a flicker-free back light that will appeal to anyone particularly prone to eye-strain.
There’s just the one DisplayPort 1.2 port, and two HDMI 1.4 ports with MHL support. But this is nitpicking really, particularly considering the excellent stand design. The Asus PB287Q has a generous amount of height adjustment, enough that you won’t have to resort to any other means of boosting its height. The pivot works fine, too, though I was little dubious as to how useful this is in a TN-based monitor — a panel technology not famed for great vertical viewing angles, which are very important for portrait use.
As for how the monitor looks, it’s black and monitor-like. That’s fine with me. The bezels aren’t offensively wide and Asus has kept labels to a reasonable minimum, which I like. Well done Asus.
