KitGuru Says: Asustek’s PB287Q is the first inexpensive 4K display designed for gamers, but it will certainly not be the last one. Other makers will follow Asus in the coming quarters and by the end of the year there probably be a number of gaming displays with ultra-high-definition resolution and 60Hz refresh rate on the market.
