You don't seem to accept some key differences between panels and the end products. You can't dismiss PLS as 'inferior' to IPS based on your limited experience with a few PLS panels.

I see what you're saying and I do respect your opinion. You've tried some PLS panels and notice some pixel transitions that you feel are sluggish compared to some IPS panels you've seen. That is something that has been improved on some of the newest PLS models, though, and the spread of transitions with effective overdrive is very similar to modern AH-IPS. Certain boundaries are set by the panel themselves when it comes to pixel responsiveness, but the capabilities of WQHD AH-IPS and PLS is very similar in this regard. Overdrive solutions implemented as an external circuit, by the monitor manufacturer, can have significant differences in how they handle responsiveness. I too am interested in seeing what AHVA can achieve at 144Hz, because regardless of how far pixel responses can be pushed with reasonable overdrive refresh rate is really a key barrier.

Maybe you should have bought a Dell U2711 since it has inaccurate wide-gamut colours, slower pixel response times vs. newer 1440p panels, overshoot ghosting and a grainy matte coating like your LP2475.

I'm very disappointed in the quality of discussion going on here. I don't come here to deal with goons. If this is how you guys are going to treat people offering a different perspective, and helping people make informed choices, I'm out. If anyone is interested in discussing anything I've said or wishes to inquire about a purchase, feel free to PM me.

I've had my PB278Q and I love it. Had it since July. Using 780 6GB SLI, and I absolutely love the 60FPS. Depending on game, it never goes below 59FPS smile.gif However, when the price of the ROG Swift drops, I may pick one of those up and sell my PB278Q. I need at least 144Hz so I can really take advantage of my 780's, especially at 1440p

I just want to post my experience with the PB278Q when I had one.

If you're coming from a higher input lag TN, this monitor is awesome. The colors are fantastic, the build quality is superb and I couldn't notice any ghosting in gaming.

What I did unfortunately notice (and was the reason why I returned it) was the input lag. I'm not a competitive FPS player or anything, but coming from a Samsung BX2440, I could instantly notice the input lag and I could not get used to it/accept it, so I had to return it. I also feel 60hz is a little silly considering I have 2 980's which can easily pump out 60+ frames maxed out in games.

I'm now currently waiting on a ROG Swift to come into stock at a local retailer.

hey guys today I got home and started browsing the official computer thread and noticed white flashing or something in the area circled in the picture; it only seems to show when I am viewing pictures/watching a video in minimized form & on a games black loading screen... does that mean dead or stuck pixels??

I made those reviews. Both are good choices, it comes down to pricing and location. The AOC's sold in Europe can use Samsung's glow free PLS panel>all AHVA/IPS panels. If you don't live in Europe then I recommend the BL2710PT since it tends to be cheaper in North America and has better colour presets.

awesome thanks for the reply. looks like i'll be picking up the BL2710PT. however, both are currently equally priced on Amazon.
btw great reviews. +rep.

I saw that there were a few folks in this thread that had to RMA their monitor. My monitor needs an RMA and I am having a really hard time dealing with ASUS Support. Does anyone have any advice?

I originally used the web form to initiate an RMA request. I immediately received an email with an RMA number and instructions to ship the monitor at my own expense. Except the warranty booklet clearly states that US customers get free 2-way ground shipping for the full duration of the 3 year warranty (my monitor is about 10 months old).

I've been on the web chat 3 different times with 3 different reps, trying to convert my standard RMA to an advance replacement RMA with free shipping. The first two reps were typing very broken English and I don't think they understood what I was asking. The third rep seemed to know what I wanted, but said I had to come back another day because their system wasn't working. I'm starting to get frustrated. Should I just keep going on web chat hoping to get lucky with a rep that can help me? Or is there something else I can do?

I believe I worked through a phone service at least the first time if not both. Advanced replacement had free shipping, but still required a $10 payment for something (filing paperwork, service fee, whatever) and then a hold on your credit card after you fill out the additional form. Im pretty sure it was the phone both times I worked with ASUS and I dont recall any language barriers, just annoyance that they still find a way to charge us something.
