I'm going with 4 stars only because this is my first experience with a curved monitor and I don't have any comparison to go by, however I really like this monitor. It set up very easy, has a crisp, clear display and even a little flip out thing to hold your head phones. Only had to make a few adjustments with my computers resolution to get it looking great. . I wanted a good monitor to stream movies, game and surf. I think I found it.
This Asus PB278Q 27" LED LCD Monitor is a great budget pick for anyone wanting a decent monitor for professional photography work. The color is great and I would say better than an NEC with a few years in it. Takes calibrations well. The problem with this is the sleep or standby sensor somehow doesn't detect when my 2012 17" macbook pro wakes up from sleep and won't come back on. This results in a very unpredictable pushing of the input button trying to get the laptop to see the display. Very annoying! Almost unacceptable actually. I've thought of throwing it out the window because of this problem. ASUS corresponded with me about the issue and said to RMA it. LOL. Cheap monitor problems.
