Unboxing and Packaging

 

As far as packaging goes, the PB287Q was shipped inside of a plain brown cardboard box that covered some of the main specifications, including the size, resolution, response time, and inputs. As you can see, the box appears to have taken a bit of a beating, but the monitor arrived in perfect condition.

Upon opening the box, you can see the cords are wrapped in plastic bags and are placed in various compartments inside the foam packaging.

Below, you can see how the monitor is protected by the foam (top foam piece removed). I would like to see the monitor facing the other direction or a bit farther away from the box to protect it from box punctures.

Assembly

 

Assembly is incredibly easy. The below picture shows how the monitor comes out of the box.

You simply have to latch the base to the stand. Note the two black protrusions in the picture above. Make sure to insert these into the base first (trust me, I learned from experience so that I could provide insight to my readers).

The simply screw the base to the stand using the built-in metal tab or with a flat blade or Philips screwdriver.

 

 

Port Layout

 

You can see in the picture below the layout of the ports.

On the left half of the monitor, from left to right, we have the audio out and in ports, the DisplayPort 1.2 input, and the two HDMI 1.4 inputs (one is MHL compatible).

Above, you can see the sole power connector on the right half of the monitor. It makes use of a standard PC power cable.
