The KitGuru audience is savvy, and based on our research late last year only a tiny percentage upgraded their system to accommodate a 4k monitor. We all want more deskspace and higher resolutions, but pushing 8,294,000 pixels around can demand expensive graphics hardware. There is no doubt that prices are dropping and the quality is getting better – and with this in mind today we spend some time with the Asus PB279Q, featuring a AHVA IPS panel with a WLED backlight.
The ASUS PB279Q offers a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, a 178 degree viewing angle, 100% sRGB and 10 bit colour. It ships with DisplayPort 1.2, Mini Displayport and four HDMI 1.4/MHL ports to cover almost any system configuration. Four input sources can be viewed on a single display, simultaneously.
