- The 1440p resolution is very nice and sharp, it's a very noticeable improvement from my previous 27in 1080p monitor.
- You can modify pretty much everything you'd need to about the display visually as it's a display for artist, so there is no gamma 1,2,3 situations you'd see on most consumer monitors.
- It has no fake sharpness enabled out of the box, was actually surprised by that as I'm use to that being the first thing I have to tone down when I first set up a monitor.
- I really REALLY like the buttons being on the front instead of the back of the monitor, this makes it easier change the settings of the monitor, though a nub like on Samsung monitors is still much more preferable.
- It also has shortcuts on two of the buttons to quickly change a some settings: Blue Light Filter, Brightness, Contrast, Color Temp., User Display Mode 1, User DIsplay Mode 2, and the QuickFit Feature.
- The QuickFit Feature seems like a really nice way for artist to get measurements quickly, the bottom bezel of the monitor also has a ruler on it.
- The 75hz is nice is completely fine for gamers that want to focus on monitor visuals over super high refresh rates. If you are a competitive gamer, I'd recommend going for a higher refresh rate monitor unless you plan for this to be a secondary monitor meant for consuming media, which this monitor excels at.
- The Adaptive-Sync works great with Nvidia GPUs and I have not noticed any issues such as flickering or Adaptive-Sync not working. I do not have an AMD card to see how it works there, however.
- The preincluded sRGB calibration is very nice, though I ultimately used it as a base due to one issue I'll go into in the cons.
- the USB hub is very nice, I use it for my Steam Controller dongle and the USB-C port to quickly connect my portable SSD and Phone at the moment.
- At least on my monitor, the preincluded sRGB setting was red biased and the brightness was way too low thanks to the EnergyStar rating, the User Mode 1 and 2 default settings are based on the sRGB mode so I just eye tuned it to no longer be red biased and a bit more brighter, if you have a color calibrator device, that should allow you to improve the calibration even more.
- I have noticed that sometimes when my computer boots up, this monitor does not wake up in time so my second monitor displays the boot up, however this has never messed anything up like making the second monitor the primary, so this is more of a pet peeve.
Overall Review: I would whole heartily recommend this product to other people, and already have, it's a very nice monitor and the two cons I have are over all very minor.
I do actually plan to buy this monitor again to replace my also aging second monitor.
I can not think of something to change about the monitor, it is very great as is, if I wanted gimmicky gaming features that most monitors have or higher refresh rates, I would just buy a gaming monitor.
Overall Review: I've had this monitor for the past three weeks and it's much better than the Pixio PX275h I previously had. The Pixio was piercingly bright and it was hard to calibrate the colors properly. Could've been user error, dunno. I definitely spent a good hour or two and got it to a point where it was decent. This Asus has been pre-calibrated from the factory and even came with some certs.
The Pixio had a higher refresh rate (95Hz vs. 75Hz), but I have a separate gaming monitor so this point is moot for me. The Asus also has usb ports and though I haven't had to make use of them yet, having the option is nice.
Overall I'm enjoying this monitor for the purposes I'm using it for. Would recommend.
Pros: This is the best picture I have ever seen. Games excellent, Division 2 looks awesome at 2560x1440. Everything looks better, movies, pictures and games. Color accuracy provides more detail. The adjustable stand works perfectly. Best monitor I've ever purchased.
Overall Review: Definite recommend.
Pros: By luck of the draw, no dead pixels on this one, very promising.
Due to COVID-19 shifting my employment to home I needed to replace my budget 1080p gaming monitor with something that would be able to affordably comparable to my work desktop (an iMac).
The included stand is very stable and looks premium for being a brush look plastic. Height adjustment and rotation is smooth. There is a cable organization slot which has been excellent as I have no moved to a fully wired setup.
The slim sides and the ruler embossed bottom edge gives the monitor a unique, but not distracting aesthetic.
The colour looks vibrant and accurate out the box, gamma as well. I'm not an expert on this due to my work not requiring me to edit for print materials.
Price is great, made this purchase a no-brainer.
Cons: Could use a USB-C port.
Overall Review: I'd recommended this if you were interested into semi-professional photo editing, graphic design, and some moderate gaming (should you not be a frame addict, Hz chaser; games like CS:GO, Siege, Valorant are totally playable at 75hz if you aren't getting into eSports full-time).
I'll definitely be looking out for the ProArt line when it comes down to upgrading my computer and monitor for Adobe RGB and 4K.
Pros: The color accuracy is amazing.
Cons: None so far.
Asus if you're listening there's a bug in the chroma tune software and it stops working after you come back from sleep. Not really a big thing, I'm sure it will get fixed.
Overall Review: This is the first monitor I've owned that can actually show a decent Yellow. I watched some high end nature footage the other day with a lot of flowers and I was just blown away.
I use the Software a lot more than I thought I would. I like it bright when I'm watching a movie or gaming, so I have it set up to automatically switch into rec709 when I start Premiere pro in case I forget.
Pros: -Totally colour correct, has sRGB and 307 presets
- High-grade aluminium base
- Goes 90 degrees clockwise for tate-mode Sega Saturn emulation, or portrait-mode art work
- Built-in VESA attachment points for mounting plate
- Multiple inputs
- 4-port USB hub
- Built-in speakers
Cons: - Speakers are JUNK
- Typical LCD cons (backlight bleed in dark rooms etc)
- Typical IPS cons (only good viewing angles for one person etc)
Overall Review: Definitely a good piece of kit, and nicely priced besides. Replaces my beloved 16:10 in this new era of 16:9, but large enough display to make up for it.
Pros: - Great colors
- Very solid and well built stand with plenty of adjustments
- USB hub is a great bonus
- Simple design that looks good
- 75Hz out of the box
- Low response times makes it actually pretty good for gaming
Cons: - There is some backlight bleed but it's not too crazy and you only notice this on very dark images (coming from a VA panel this was very obvious)
Overall Review: I love this monitor, I was expecting to buy a separate gaming monitor and use this for photo editing but this works for both. I even tested CSGO and it was great. The adaptive sync was a bonus to that. I haven't bothered trying to overclock the monitor yet but I'll definitely give that a try soon. I would highly recommend this monitor. For the price you get a lot of features.
Pros: Super bright. Vivid color. Extremely sharp. No need for adjustment out of the box.
Overall Review: If 27" is the right size for you, this is an excellent choice.
