Review: Perfect budget monitor 27″ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV

ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV is a very good and budget monitor for creative professionals. Its excellent ergonomics, high maximum brightness and wide viewing angles make it a good fit for almost all types of workspace. It comes with good factory color accuracy and has an excellent range of SDR colors; However, it cannot display a wide range of colors and does not support HDR. It has impressive gaming performance despite its professional-looking design, as it has a quick response time, Adaptive Sync support and a 75 Hz refresh rate that makes fast movement a little smoother. Unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio and mediocre black uniformity, which is provided by most IPS panels. On the plus side, it provides a generous number of USB ports and also has a pair of built-in speakers.ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV
