[ASUS] RoG Swift PG278Q Discussion Thread - Page 263

I bought the Spyder4Elite and let me tell you, it is here to stay. 2 minutes per monitor I had all 4 screens calibrated and looking great.

If you only have one screen, the Spyder4Pro is more than enough for your needs.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, can't decide) I've just been spoiled by my Pioneer Kuro PRO-141FD (professionally calibrated by an ISFccc tech) all these years -- pretty much every other display pales in comparison other than a handful, even going on 6 years later.

Give us some high-res IPS/PLS G-Sync monitors, please manufacturers! Please! redface.gif
For general computer use, I'll take a hardware calibrated TN panel over most non-calibrated IPS panels any day.

I doubt gamers need calibrations by professionals. They just use the Windows tool and make a brightness and gamma correction and red/yellow/blue correction. Accurate calibration is for knowing what you see on the monitor is what will be seen on printing or otther monitors in general or for scientific work.

Sadly IPS/PLS got too much motion blur even at high refresh rate.

Yeah I agree about the pixel response of IPS/PLS but I don't mind it as much as some. I wasn't really talking about pixel response but base image quality and the performance of the monitor in that regard (black level, ansi contrast, grayscale, gamma tracking, uniformity, viewing angle etc). I also didn't mean to give the impression that IPS/PLS are fantastic performers either as they still suffer from the inherent flaws of consumer-level LCD monitor technology, just to a lesser degree.

Unfortunately I think we have to wait for OLED to solve all of our problems and it'll be a few years yet before they are mainstream. Until then it's a game of compromise depending on preference.

Anyway I'm very interested in this ROG Swift -- I really want to see if all the hype surrounding G-Sync is legitimate.

"Calibrating" a display for games is completely over-rated... and this display is pretty much only designed for gaming.
