More is Better
Featuring a 27” WQHD 2560 x 1440 panel with 109 pixels per inch giving you the benefits of greater image detail and up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. These minor details add up to give you a major in-game advantage.
PB328Q gives you premium images with lifelike colors thanks to 100% sRGB color gamut, 10-bit color and 12-bit look up table. The IPS panel provides wide 178-degree viewing angles for minimal distortion and color shift even when you're viewing it from extreme angles.
PiP and PbP Modes
Built-in Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) functionality lets you view content from multiple sources simultaneously, along with the ability to switch between them, easily.
ASUS EyeCare Flicker-Free Technology
Flicker is caused by the rapid on/off cycle of the LED backlight as it tried to maintain the brightness of the display. It constantly bombards the eye with varying levels of brightness which causes fatigue and strain as your eye tries to adjust. Certified flicker-free by TUV Rheinland laboratories, the PB328Q removes onscreen flicker by using Smart Dynamic Backlight Adjustment.
ASUS EyeCare Low Blue Light Filter
Recent studies have found that blue light from monitors may cause eye damage, strains, headaches, and sleep disorders. ASUS Blue Light Filter protects your eyes from harmful blue light; a new OSD menu lets you easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen for the best balance for protection and entertainment.
PB328Q has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position.
All ASUS Monitors come with a 3-Year warranty and ASUS Rapid Replacement service offering free 2-way cross-shipping that swaps any verified defective monitor with a replacement before you send it back.

I purchase this monitor 3/2017 for my MacBook Pro (mid-2014) using ThunderBolt to DisplayPort Cable.
Within 6 months the display would go black momentarily and sometimes make a quiet snap noise, but otherwise performed well.
FAST-FORWARD to late 11/2018 - the monitor refused to get signal to the DisplayPort. Testing by swapping out cables and connectors all the other ports work fine.
I now have to use HDMI 1080p instead of 2560x1440 so I now have about 2/3 of my original resolution, which is less real estate on the screen and larger type and images which is not why I bought this monitor.
This was used for my home graphics office almost daily for 4-8 hours and never was moved or bumped from it's original placement so there was no abuse.
I really liked this monitor despite some reviews indicating issues with backlight bleed and occasional I/O failures, but 20 months is not a long time and seems about the average life expectancy.
Once I can no longer stand the resolution I'm forced to use due to the failure, I will be replacing this monitor with a different brand.
UPDATE: After some confusion about the serial number not being north american, I shipped the monitor back to Cali for repairs. Took 14 days to get back to east coast.
Monitor has worked flawlessly since the repair. I am moving this back up to 4 stars and chalking this up to a occasional manufacturing issue. Stuff happens.
I was a little bit hesitant about ordering this monitor because of some of the reviews. Some reporting that the monitors that they had received went through poor QC. Spending close to $500 on something that may be faulty is a little unnerving. But... I really wanted a monitor with these specs so I pulled the trigger. Low and behold this is a beautiful monitor. I loved it so much, that I ordered 2 more. My first 1 was ordered April of 2016 and the other 2 May of 2017.
Previous setup was 3 ASUS VS247H-P 23.6" TN panels. They were great monitors. But, I was a little disappointed in them with using Lightroom. When I received my first PB328Q I was amazed by the size, colors and how deep the blacks are compared to the VS247H monitors. I can't stress how big of a difference their is in the black levels.
Viewing angles are also very impressive. I notice very, very little color or brightness changes when moving side to side or up and down. Looking across the monitor at an extreme angle text is still perfectly readable and color is slightly washed out. The menus are very easy to navigate with
the toggle on the back right side.
The stands are very sturdy and allow for a great range of adjustment. Monitors can be moved up and down with 1 finger and they turn from side to side with ease. With the heft of the these monitors, the bases do not slip and slide when adjusting them. Putting them into portrait mode is great for if you want to look at a whole Word document and not have to scroll to read an entire page.
PB328Q's are connected to a GTX 980ti graphics card via AmazonBasics 10' DisplayPort (DP) cables (which are compliant to DP version 1.2). I had to go into the NVIDIA control panel and change the refresh rate from 60Hz to 75Hz. Also change DP input version from 1.1 to 1.2 in the monitor settings itself.
Having extra USB ports come in handy for plugging in web cams, flash drives or even a dongle for XBOX One controller. Each monitor has 4 USB 3.0 ports on the left side. Witch is great, but... If having a multi monitor setup they do get blocked by the other monitor sitting next to it. So you just have to be mindful of what and where you may want something plugged in the ports. Also be careful if you have something such as a dongle for XBOX One controller plugged in. They stick out few inches and could potentially damage the port of dongle when turning the monitors.
With a resolution of 2560x1440 I am able to display 4 720p YouTube videos perfectly on each monitor (added photos to show how much screen space is on 1440p). Games are also so much... How shall I say... Prettier??? The level of detail that you get with 1440p over 1080p is truly awesome. With the 980 TI games are all set at highest settings and still get between 70fps - 120fps (games such as: BF4, BF1, GTAV, Titanfall 1&2, PUBG etc.). As for the 75Hz for gaming... I can't say weather or not it actually makes much of a difference, perhaps slightly. But being a weekend gamer, when I can, I'll take whatever advantage I can get.
I highly recommend the ASUS PB328Q monitor for anyone looking to upgrade to a larger monitor with good colors and blacks and don't want to spend the money on the ultra high end, ultra wide monitors with an ultra high price tag that comes with those monitors. I was able to purchase 3 of these with 10' power, DP and USB 3.0 cables for about the same price as a single ultra wide costs. And I get a lot more screen real estate for the price. I sit roughly 36" away from the center monitor and with a 32" monitor, it's a perfect size for reading text, using MS Office, playing games, editing photos or anything else.
I would also like to point out that their size is not small. At about 28.75" wide, with 3 of these sitting on my desk they take up around 75" of desk space.
This panel is *perfect*. No defects. No dead pixels or other quality problems. Very effective packaging with double boxes and lots of foam. I hooked it up using HDMI, and it immediately synced at 60Hz without my having to adjust a thing.
Since this monitor is not 4K, there were no problems scaling. Lots of screen real estate, so I bumped up the font size just a bit as I'm older, and my eyes are not as sharp as they once were. I set my settings to force fonts to 120 DPI, and it worked extremely well, and made fonts much clearer and easier to read. If you do a lot of reading as I do, it's a very good monitor for that, as it has special settings for color and brightness so that it's easy on the eyes, and it have five presets for adjusting blue light down so that it doesn't interfere with sleep. The on screen display to configure the monitor is easy to use.
It comes with cables to connect HDMI, Displayport or DVI, VGA, audio and for USB passthrough.
I'm a programmer, and I play strategy games and watch videos.
I can turn the monitor sideways, change the orientation to portrait, and read a *ton* of text, whether it's a book or code.
Movies with a lot of dark or poorly lit scenes are amazing and show a lot more detail that my old monitor, a Samsung 22BW. Contrast is greater than on any monitor I've seen. It has a "Darkroom" mode that I didn't know about, that dims the screen perfectly for night use, and it's very easy to select in the OSD.
Photo editing is a dream on this thing. The large screen area means that I can load large photos and I don't have to scroll or adjust. Colors are truly amazing. I'm a photographer, and I'm thrilled with the color accuracy. Photos that have fog actually *look* like fog instead of just washed out.
The design is clean and simple and effective. The stand holds the screen firmly but moving the screen takes only the lightest touch, and it's very configurable. I like being able to lift it up so that I'm not hunched over, I can sit up straight.
The viewing angle is quite good, and my family can all watch a movie together from different angles without color shift.
I have ordered a faster graphics card to drive this unit, as I have a Geforce GT720, and while it works better than I expected, I have noticed that there is some stuttering on some games and on very detailed movies with action scenes. It's subtle, but it's there. The new Geforce GTX 970 should fix that. I will update this review and report on the differences. The new card will have Displayport, and I want to drive this monitor at 75Hz, as it requires Displayport 1.2 (the monitor comes with version 1.1 as default) and a high end graphics card. The manual has a list of supported cards.
One slight criticism is that this monitor did not come with a manual, but I did find that online on ASUS's website support link.
I didn't take any points off because manuals are pretty easy to obtain online, but this would be a problem if the display didn't function properly, and while this was not a problem for me, as the setup was a breeze, if things went wrong for some reason, it would be difficult. Not much of an issue for those upgrading from an older monitor, which is going to be the case for many. Also, once manuals are printed and shipped, inevitably something requires a change to the manual, and most manuals are now found online.
If you're looking for a 32 inch monitor, and you're not sure what to get, you deserve to give this monitor a look. It's awesome.
Top reviews from other countries
And you know what? This is my first review ever. I have two 144hz monitors for FPS games already. One Benq 24" and one Asus 27". Since Fighting games are locked at 60fps I thought I would get a 32" monitor with better image quality to make them even better. At first I was a bit scared to receive one with dead or stuck pixels and/or other issues but EVERYTHING is perfect. In fact, everything was so perfect I had to write this review just to let y'all know it's good and you won't be disapointed. I don't recommend for FPS/RTS and/or MOBAS but if you like RPGs/fighting games and/or any offline games in general and want good quality THIS IS THE ONE.
For me even though I wanted to go 4K, I couldn't get behind it yet. I settled on this monitor because of a lot of factors
-It looks fantastic, has a thin bezel and can pivot, tilt, swivel, portrait, landscape,,, you name it..
-It has a great resolution of 2560x1440, It works perfect to maintain a proper aspect ratio from 1080p (I was considering ultrawide...decided not to) and still gives you a decent crisp density without having to scale like 4K. This monitor is 92PPI @ 32" which is the same a 1080P at 24"
-Colors are great, even, no bleed and if you read the tomshardware review they have already calibrated it and posted the correct settings. Done
-Great refresh rate @ 75Hz, low input lag and quick pixel response all mean you can game on this IMO. I'm a casual gamer, but I couldn't stand certain monitors. It'snot a gaming monitor, but it will do you just fine
All in all this is probably the best monitor you can buy. It is a great size and perfect viewing distance from an arm length away. Lots of screen real estate, great for reading, productivity and coding. Fast enough response times to game and color accurate enough to know you're very close to the real thing.
There is just one thing...and yes many people bring it up and it is the quality control. I bought this monitor originally from another retailer when it was on sale and it came with a dead pixel, which I promptly returned. I bought it on Amazon afterwards and the new one was flawless. If you don't mind trying to look for the perfect one you will find the diamond in the rough and you will be glad you did.
The best bit for me is the large panel. My 40+ year old eyes sure do appreciate it, and the 75Hz refresh rate is just what I need to minimize eye strain - I've always been overly sensitive to flicker.
Colour reproduction is excellent once you tune it a bit, and you can even change up on the fly depending on what you're doing. You'll also want to turn off VividPixel...it comes switched on and makes everything on the screen look like it has had some kind of edge filter applied to it. Honestly, it freaked me out. But turn that off and you're in business.
One week later it died. Am returning it.
6 hours later... Accidently pushed a button on back and i now works again. A mysterious monitor. Am glad. It would have been heavy to return and I really like it!
