ASUS 27” PB278Q Extreme-Definition LCD Monitor, $469
We recently acquired a new, Asus 27” PB278Q extreme-definition monitor at a not-so-extreme price. In fact, we are selling this PLS (Plane-Line Switching) screen below market value, at only $469! We only have one that we are selling for this price, so don’t delay!
This Professional-Grade Asus WQHD LED-backlit monitor is one of the best 27 inch monitor on the market. Most people looking for higher performance monitors are familiar with the IPS (In-plane switching) monitors. PLS screens are made by Samsung and are similar to IPS screens, but have some advantages over the traditional IPS screens. They are:
A) More light gets through each individual cell so the monitor can have a brighter display or lower power consumption.
B) PLS displays with a higher pixel-per-inch count while keeping light output higher.
C) PLS also claims to have better viewing angles for color and contrast in comparison to IPS.
We expect photographers and designers who are looking for very accurate colors will find this monitor to be an excellent buy! This monitor is also a great monitor for gamers, and anyone who wants an affordable high-end monitor.
