The Asus PA279CV with its 4K resolution and 27-inch screen size is well-suited for digital photo editing, print photo editing, and general productivity tasks, thanks to its high-quality text and image clarity. Its IPS panel offers good color accuracy, important for tasks that require color precision. However, for gaming, this monitor falls short due to its lower refresh rate and total response time, making it less ideal for fast-paced competitive games though casual gaming is still viable. Its HDR performance is not strong, so it's not the best choice for HDR gaming and media consumption. It comes at a midrange price, offering a balance between cost and performance for users with a focus on work-related tasks over high-end gaming or HDR content. Give Feedback

PC World

Matthew Smith | April 2022
"Asus’ ProArt PA279CV is a sensible choice for content creators who want a color accurate 4K monitor but don’t want to clean out their savings account. It edges out alternatives like the BenQ PD2720U and Dell S2722QC in brightness and contrast without giving up ground on connectivity or menu options."
