Real Estate, Real Estate, Real Estate! It's all about the Desktop Real Estate! I bought 2 of these to run dual for an effective Desktop Real estate of 5120X1440 (2560X1440 X 2) I was running dual 24" @ 3840 X 1200 before these, but this is now just awesome! I did not realize how crappy my old Dell 2407's have become until I got these new PB278Q. I have no problems with the Monitors, 1 of them has a tiny red dead pixel, but amazing that it's only 1 considering each monitor has millions of pixels. The only problems I'm having are not the Monitors themselves, the problem is with DisplayPort, I purchased a new Video Card because my old Radeon 5450 only had 1 - DVI-DL + 1 HDMI + 1 VGA (BTW VGA is worthless, I don't know why they still put VGA on when nobody uses it anymore as it degrades picture quality) HDMI does NOT run 2560X1440 Resolution) I had to buy a new Radeon HD 7770 dual Mini DP ports. The Monitors don't come out of sleep, I have yet to REALLY figure out the freaking problem, cables, drivers, What? It does not happen if one monitor is connected to DVI-DL, only the DP connected Monitor(s) It's not the Monitors problem, it's DisplayPort. Google it, there are complaints all over about it, but I have yet to find a REAL solution as of 10-12-2013 I've only read a whole lot of BS about this problem.
I bought this for Photography, very nice well built, great color, not all computers can support the high quality of 3880 x1900, had to buy a Gaming video card, then DP cables, come to find out Photoshop Lightroom and other programs don't support high resolution, small menus, you need to squint to read, should have waited till software Co hardware agree.
Has minimal border design & sleek appearance, which I like alot. Picture quality is better than the huge, hulking, heavy Dell Trinitron 19" monitor it replaced. Very happy with purchase! Disclosure - I do own OSTK stock shares, which are UP.
