Asus Delivers 28 Inch 4K Monitor at Bargain Price

June 25, 2014

ASUS PB287Q 28-Inch Screen LED-Lit 4K MonitorA few months back I wrote The Biggest Baddest Computer Monitor Money Could Buy. The monitor I featured, the ASUS PQ321Q 4K Monitor is truly amazing. It also is outside of the budget for most designers. Since that post went up, the price has dropped to around $2400.

There is now another ASUS monitor that should fit into the budgets of many more designers. Let’s compare and contrast a bit here. The first monitor I described has a 31.5 inch diagonal screen while the new one is 28 inches. A little smaller, but still the same 3840 x 2160 resolution at 60 Hz.

The biggest difference is the screen technology as the new one uses TN (Twisted Nematic) in its LCD which is considered inferior to the IPS (in-plane switching) screens. TN has improved and while it isn’t as good as IPS, the difference isn’t as big as in the past.

Now let’s get to the most important spec, the ASUS PB287Q 28 Inch 4K Monitor is currently selling for $649 at Amazon! That is far more affordable and allows designers to put an amazing monitor on your desk. More pixels for doing layouts. More details when editing photos. More applications running on a single monitor. All of this leads to a lot more productivity! If you haven’t looked into a new monitor in a few years, it is worth giving this one a long look.
