[Official] Asus PB278Q & PB278QR Thread: Read the 1st Post - Page 44

post #431 of 1498
I was able to view the PB278Q today running next to the U2711 at a local Fry's and I was impressed. I ran the brightness to 20, contrast 80 and looked at different things testing it out and did not notice any flickering. Obviously only under one condition and for a about 30 mins isn't going to be proof enough but feeling confident the PWM back lighting isn't going to be an issue. Will have 30 days to figure it out.

I'm about to pull the trigger on this monitor through Newegg and will go thorough how ever many returns I have to get a good monitor. I'm in no hurry.

I really like what I saw running 'Need for Speed', very sweet looking. I can live with what I saw in terms of motion and felt responsive enough for me on screen during the game. Obviously a different beast then 120 Hz gaming but not nearly as bad as some have said it could be or how I imagined.

I ask myself one last question......After 1 year since release, Do I think a 1440p refresh monitor from ASUS is upcoming soon? With my luck after i buy this, next month the PB278Q2 will come out. tongue.gif

Edit - I found a new Pro Art PA249Q, the ASUS MX299Q which is an ultra-wide 29″ monitor that has a 2560 x 1080 IPS & VG248QE 120 Hz coming but no signs of a newer 1440p.

In one short answer, I doubt they will refresh just yet as the monitor just can out! However I can't say for certain. I am in love with this screen and would highly recommend you pull the trigger asap!

I just got it to over clocks to 75hz using powerstrip on my 6970 for those that are wondering if it can be done.

Watch the Avengers on BluRay on that monitor. I Really think you'll like it a lot. Hopefully yours is free of any noticeable issues on the first try. Mine was and I'd assume most others are as well.

If every two years seems about right with monitors I'm good. smile.gif

Funny you should mention that. The movie being shown was Avengers across all the monitors when I walked up, before I made him take it down and swap it without another display they had set up with a working system and gaming wheel.

The colors were night and day compared to 120 Hz TN panel. I can already see the writing on the wall, for the amount of time spent gaming @ 120 Hz, I will be getting more pleasure and time doing everything else @ 1440p.

The 3D Vision VG278H Nvidia 2 Lightboost I currently own is going to second rig and I will have my 3D Vision gaming when I feel the need right upstairs. At least if I can kick my kids off anyway. biggrin.gif

BTW, trigger pulled. PB278Q probably be here by Wensday, Thursday latest.

I was getting the tearing in black ops 2 on my Gtx680s. Have not tried with my titans yet also i stopped using this monitor because of the fact i was getting screen tearing in black ops 2 i diddnt even bother to try any other games. I am going to use that monitor as my primary tonight for some crysis 3 action to see if its any better if not i will stick to my 144hz.

I know I don't have the same monitor, but I also get problems on Black Ops 2 graphically speaking, it says it's at 150fps+ but it feels like 30fps.

Got this yesterday and less then a couple hours of usage. Sparked up BF3, set it to 'Ultra' settings and in campaign I was pulling 95-130 FPS. thumb.gif

First impressions:

Easier to maintain over 60 FPS on 1440p over 120 FPS on 120 Hz gaming. . Smooth game play.

Very beautiful. I do agree the colors are very vibrant and I'm impressed.

I'm not put off at all by the slight lag / delay I feel. There is a bit of motion blur compared to my VG278H.

Optical mouse responding very well to my reactions and another testament to how much I love this Roccat Savu.

Love the extra desk top space and will be able to get used to the smaller text easily.

Thank you Menacing for the calibrations. Worked well for me. thumb.gif

Checked for stuck or white pixels and could not find any. There is back light bleeding on the upper & lower right hand side of the monitor. The left hand side shows some as well. Will take pictures when I get the time by the weekend. I'm going to ask for your guys opinion regarding the back light bleed I see.

I get some bleeding too, but only on Windows. Within games, even on black screen, i get no bleeding. I think the "bleeding issue" is way overstated and is nitpicking. I love this screen. I did about 4 hours this arvo on Bioshock Infinite and this screen rocks! No bleeding, no eye fatigue, and little noticeable blur. That being said, it did take me and my eyes a few sessions to calibrate. Remember that peeps, our eyes adapt, it takes a little time, and when they do..thumb.gif
