Dig deeper, however, and there's plenty to tweak here. There are dedicated sRGB and Adobe RGB presets and different levels of response time overdrive to fiddle with. You can also adjust the Gamma manually and there's an Overscan mode if you need it.

Although 24-inch 1080p IPS displays are now available under £200, good-quality 27-inch consumer panels are still a fair bit more expensive. Therefore there's not too much of a price difference between those screens and the Asus PA279Q. For the extra...
