Wonderful Monitor, But Needs A Little Setup
Posted by: Blastmonkey965 from: Rowland Heights, CA on
This is a gorgeous monitor. Colors and text really stand out compared to my old 1080p monitor. 4K content stands out incredibly well. It comes included with a DisplayPort cable as well as a HDMI cable, a huge plus.
Note, that for this monitor, only through DisplayPort will you get the 4K resolution, through HDMI you will only get 1080p. Make sure your GPU has a DisplayPort connection.
Couple things you'll have to do when you receive the monitor.
- You'll want to set the DisplayPort version from 1.1 to 1.2 through the OSD menu.
- Configure your GPU to run at 60 Hz instead of 30 Hz that comes standard.
- Your monitor may have a popping sound when you turn it on. This is the sound from the speaker. To turn off the popping sound, go into the OSD, go to Sound. Turn Volume to 0, leave mute to the OFF setting, and change the Source to Line In. That will resolve that issue.
- Brightness may be a little high from factory, I adjusted mine to 70.
A beautiful monitor for games and to allow me to multitask while I program. Excellent price as well. Highly recommended monitor!

it makes the difference
Posted by: techif from: on
I do a lot of video editing, and Photoshop on my PC. The 4k resolution (3840x2160) brings lots of space for Photoshop and After Effects, Premiere Pro etc. No need for a second monitor, at least for me. For a gamer it is another story.
I am running the PB787Q on a Displayport (DP 1.2) connection and at 60Hz. You will need DP version 1.2 to do that, otherwise you'll get only 30Hz. Same with the HDMI connection which goes only at 30Hz.
My GPU (graphic card) is a Geforce GTX 970 and if you have another model I would suggest to read the card's specs first to see if it can at least get 4k at 30Hz. Otherwise you'll be stuck with a standard 1080p resolution.
The stand of the monitor is very sturdy and the height of the monitor can easily be adjusted what I like very much. It also tilts and swivels.
The colors are great right out of the box without even calibrating. The viewing angles let the colors shift a little bit but since I usually watch head-on, frontal it is not a big deal to me. I contacted ASUS support because initially when I connected the monitor via DP 1.2 I did only get 30Hz. The solution was that I missed a monitor on-screen setting which allows to select DP 1.1 or DP 1.2. Default setting was 1.1 and after I switched it to 1.2 I got the 60hz. For games and video the refreshing rate of 60 Hz is what you want.

I bought two of these Asus PB287Q for my Mac Pro (Late 2013 base model with AMD300 graphics) and wow, what a difference. I'm not a computer nerd, but I had two HP2711x HD monitors that are still good, but these Asus monitors are great. I use it for normal work/school stuff web searches, email, spreadsheets, and the occasional video. Text is clear and easier to read than on my previous HD monitors. I can only play sound out of one or the other monitor (A Mac issue, not a monitor issue) and the monitor controls are a little screwy to work with, but they work fine if you're careful. The base is solid, the adjustment height is very nice (can move the monitor screen without much effort but it doesn't drop unexpectedly either) and it is simple to set up on a desktop. Mine have a funny popping sound when waking the computer up from sleep, but it hasn't caused any issues. I use a mini-display port to Displayport cable to get the 3840x2160 at 60Hz (found on Amazon, search Accell) but you have to scale the screen resolution as the 4k is just too small to read. If you have a Mac, hold the option key down and click Scaling under System Preferences Displays and select the option that works for you. Great monitor and I highly recommend. Watch some 4k videos on it; it's awesome.

I use this as a PC Monitor and I must say it's fantastic. Careful tho if your buying this for 4K gaming tho b/c your gonna need more powerful GPU's than I have. I have SLI GTX 760's and there not enough to run in 4k on anything higher than medium graphics. I must say tho that this only applies to the latest high end graphically intense games like MGS 5 Ground Zero's, Dragon Age Inquisition, Star Citizen, Far Cry 4. Besides my weeny PC having a tough time I'd highly recommend it. everything out side of gaming like movie watching playing other non high end games at 4k if they support it look great no hiccup at all. just be careful with text up scaling a lot of games will support 4k resolutions but don't have text up scaling which the picture may look nice but your not gonna be a able to read a darn thing, which stinks but I'm sure more and more games will catch up once they get enough feed back. I only seem to run into this on lower end games where they don't have HUD scaling options. all The High end games I mentioned earlier already have this in anticipation of 4k resolution.
It has a very good anti glare coating on it that helps things look super crisp at 4k even in a bright light room. It has many different screen color mode settings that do come in handy in case your playing in a low lit room because the screen is quite bright encase you don't want it that bright in a low lit room. It's has 2 HDMI ports both of which I have my PS3 and PS4 plugged into and they both work and look great at their respective 1080p resolutions. I tested My Wii U on it and it looks great as well.
The main plug it has is a DisplayPort 1.2 which Is important that it's 1.2 because you can only get 4k PC gaming at 60 hz when it's in 1.2 mode which it comes normally in 1.1 mode which you have to change by hand at first. Believe me your gonna notice the screen lag when it's at 4k 30hz, although I it ran the fine/smooth without lag if my pc was set to 1080p 30hz.

Excellent monitor, amazing value
Posted by: BostonWebDesigner from: on
Based on detailed reviews and testing the two top rated monitors at home, the Asus 28" 4K has far the best-in-class display quality *AND* monitor design. Don't underestimate the importance of the monitor design -- ability to swivel is critical. AND the stability of monitor is key. It should not wobble if it or your desk is touched. The Asus is solid. Best tech purchases I've made in years, second to buying Macbook Retina 15".

Affordable 4k monitor
Posted by: Carlito from: on
This monitor is a steal for the listed price. Works great, comes with display port and HDMI cables that support 4k.
The buttons are a little weird but once you get the hang of it it's not really a problem.

Great value, smooth video
Posted by: tigerfan from: on
I purchase the monitor to replace an older standard HD monitor and I found this new model not only has the higher resolution as expected but also the colors are more rich and warm...I am very happy so far with this device...

I love it.
Posted by: jonathan1269 from: on
I absolutely love it. I have learned though that 28 inch might still be a little small for 4K.You will definitely have to upscale a lot of the display. The only true problem is that the volume control you have to go into like 4 or 5 option settings before you even reach it. The buttons on the monitor suck. Besides that the picture is really nice.
