Love this site - used it a lot before I bought my first DSLR. I am not sure where to post this but I finally decided to make the leap from JPG to RAW, post process in Adobe Lightroom, etc. but need to upgrade my current monitor. Would appreciate your opinion on ASUS PB278Q ( or Dell U2713H ( =225-4148)?

Thanks<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Asus PB278Q
Dell U2713H

Well, its a matter of what you want/need.

I dont see that the Asus supports Adobe RGB. These monitors appears to be in different price classes. Dell monitors seem to have had their quality issues of late.

I didnt mess around and bought an older technology Asus PA246Q IPS that uses CCFL.

It has ADOBE RGB, portrait capability and is 16:10.

I really like it and it turns out I use all these capabilities. In fact, just used portrait mode this week to help with a resume for someone and just finished doing bunches of photo work for this weekends annual harmonica festival and then the churches Easter events.

I get involved in so many different kinds of tasks/projects plus watch movies as well as make movies/do video processing including slide show and video production plus office/document preparation work that I would never consider a 16:9 display, but that's me personally.

Just off hand, if you can live with the Asus then it seems to be the safer pick, but Dell's screen guarantee is great (if you can collect given you need to).

It is best to get some hands on with the actual units before committing and better yet, it is best to buy the unit that you specifically have personally evaluated. Besides being so important, displays are really complicated as there are so many variables involved. Always remember to test first with a black & white test pattern containing shades of grays. If you cant matrix B&W right/correctly, your color is not right either (and it is easier to evaluate B&W for correctness than a fancy colored PIX).

Dell P2715Q?
I realize this thread is a couple of years old and things have changed but I'm now looking for a 27" 4K monitor and wondering if anyone has experience/thoughts on the Dell 4K (more similar to the Asus discussed above and seems to be better rated):
I'm talking about the Dell P2715Q
