ASUS PB287Q True 4K Monitor Review

Monitors are hardly the most exciting thing in the world to have pictures of. It's a bit black rectangle with some buttons on it for adjustments. Still we've seen enough monitors that attempted to do something funky with the packaging of the screen that we appreciate a bezel which doesn't detract from the main event. When your screen is 28 inches of 4K goodness, that main event is most definitely the reason we're here.
In the introduction we mentioned how the lines between a television and a monitor have almost disappeared. However, one area that we're delighted to see there is still a gap is in the matte coating on the PB287Q's panel. Why television manufacturers are insisting on sticking near mirror-coatings onto their flat panels, thus replicating the most annoying element of CRTs is beyond us. The 4K TN panel on the ASUS has none of that reflectivity, which is great to see.
There are only two input types on the PB287Q. From left to right we have two HDMI 1.4 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, and the audio in and out. It's definitely worth noting that the left hand HDMI port supports the Mobile High-definition Link protocol, so you can connect your smart device to the PB287Q and broadcast onto the monitor and all it's 4K goodness.
