Although its two 4K displays drew the most attention at Computex this year, ASUS was very proud of its upcoming PA279Q display. The 27-inch IPS display features a 2560 x 1440 panel, but will ship fully calibrated from the factory. ASUS anticipates having a delta E less than 2 and 100% sRGB coverage out of box. 

The price point will be higher than the influx of Korean 27-inch 2560 x 1440 panels, but ASUS hopes that the factory color calibration will help offset the premium. There's no word on final price or availability.

    looks extremely ugly...

    That's because of the hood which you can obviously remove. Anyway this is meant for color-critical works, not gaming. Professionals hardly care about the looks.

    Ah, that's a hood. That makes more sense.

    The front-on view makes it look like it has a weird melted-plastic aesthetic in the bezel.

    True, you can probably remove it, but why did they even put such a misunderstanding around it in the first place?

    You don't seem to spend much time with color calibrated monitors. Every Nec and Eizo I know that caters to professionals has that hood to stop light from flowing into the monitor and keep the colors accurate that way.

    Too bad they didn't include some photos that clearly define the shroud. Oh wait!
