ASUS Readies ProArt PA27UCX 27-inch UHD Monitor with DisplayHDR 1000

ASUS today released its premium 27-inch monitor, the ProArt PA27UCX. The monitor is designed to look great on corner-office desks, and packs a serious feature-set. To begin with, you get 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution, with DisplayHDR 1000 compliance, true 10-bpc color (1.07 billion colors), with DCI-P3, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020 and Adobe RGB wide color gamut, and color accuracy pre-calibration. The IPS panel is illuminated by micro LEDs featuring 576 zones dynamic dimming backlight control. HDR-10 and HLG are also supported. As part of the monitor's design, it only has a single USB-C connector with DisplayPort 1.4 and 60W power draw. A hub adapts standard DisplayPort and an included power-brick.

Incorrect, author should check the facts first - this isn't micro-led monitor, it's mini-led: https://www.asus.com/Monitors/ProArt-PA27UCX/

Yes the 32" is much better but I have two concerns with it:

A) It's Asus and I really wonder how good panel uniformity is going to be and how customer service is going to respond (in Europe) in case of a lemon or any issue..
B) Judging by the current ProArt line-up, I won't be surprised if it is $3,500 or more...so no thanks, I will wait.

well first off, those who criticized me - the fact you are not excited that micro led is in production = big shame on you, regardless of other specs that is huge news, just as good as OLED and no burn in risk and lower price to manufacture...

second off - since author of article got it wrong, mini led not micro led... eh. nevermind i don't care anymore.

They should make 43" version at least.

Would evaporate all wannabe-HDR TVs. :D

It may be mini-led but it only has 576 zones which is only a moderate improvement. Really need to hit 5,000+ and 10,000+ that was promised to come.

The 32" model has over 1,000 LEDs, if that helps.

These are Pro monitors with Hardware calibration + pro color spaces (Adobe RGB) so don't expect them to care about high refresh rates...

They are trying to attract the attention of Pro users that resort to $20-30,000 HDR Pro monitors for color grading but this ain't going to happen either since they offer nowhere near what is required by that crowd. Not even remotely....

I really wonder what does Asus expect to sell and to who with these units.

Well, the only thing I hope, is that Asus will offer just the LCD. Primary reason why 32" model is so darn expensive is because it is bundled with X-rite X1. Without it it would easily cost 1000 USD less (or even more Euros).

I understand that photographers need that, but no everybody is into photography.
