if g sync is built in why would it say starting @ 799 as if they have other models, my guess is 799 is without g sync and with g sync its probably 1099, your forgetting this is ROG smile.gif

There is no proof out there that there is any performance advantage to 120 Hz monitors over 60 Hz. Average human response times are long enough that the few to tens of ms difference in input lag make no meaningful difference between even the best 120 Hz screen and worst 60 Hz IPS.

Unless you are one of the best players in the world, if you perform better at 120 fps than you do at 60, it is placebo.

You can make an argument that the smoothness of motion is worth the sacrifice of viewing angle/colors, but that's an issue of preference and nothing more. And I don't see how anyone could pick a TN panel at 28"... it's really awful compared to IPS due to the larger size which increases the color shift at the top and bottom of your screen.

There is a very noticeable difference between a 23-24" TN panel and 27-28" TN panel in terms of color shift if you sit 1-2 feet away from your screen. Now, maybe ASUS has figured out some sort of technological voodoo to work on that, but I will believe that when I see it.

I believe the only advantage to be had in 120hz vs 60hz is in fast paced fps like CSS. Outside of that there is no competitive edge. Funny thing is most basic desktop Pc's can run CSS at max settings. Takes very little to run that game at high fps.

I had a BenQ 2420tx previously and switching to my current 1440p did nothing in changing my K/D ratio in any shooter type games like BF3/BF4/C3/FC3/Metro etc. Again like I said CSS is the only one that I rarely play that the slight advantage in response time could make a difference.

The trace-free setting on the PB278Q does a fantastic job at eliminating any of the noticeable ghosting/delay effects that 60hz brings. The advantage of 1440p IPS is what it brings to my experience. It far exceeds the 1080p 120hz experience by a long shot.

Imo if you are a competitive CSS gamer who takes every millisecond seriously then by all means 1080p 120/144hz is for you. If not then you are really missing out on what 1440p brings to the table. The whole delay/ghosting/blurry argument is put to rest with the right 1440p display like the PB278Q if you are able to hold 55-60fps at all times.

It's a TN. What a shame.
post #336 of 8206
Perfect gaming monitor in every way. even better than my benq xl2420tx and I always thought you couldn't make a monitor better that. Thank you Asus for proving me wrong. Love the thin bezel, only thing that would make this better is if I had already.

Just to be clear:

I believe that some people perform better in FPS games on 120 Hz vs 60 Hz

I do not believe that the reason for that is the faster response times of 120 Hz panels, since the difference between 60 and 120 Hz panels is small relative to normal human reaction time.

There is no evidence out there which supports anything else. In fact, I believe there was an article (can't remember if I saw on OCN) that, though using a very small sample size, showed people performing more or less exactly the same on 120 Hz vs 60 Hz.

Don't buy the marketing hype around 120 Hz. It looks smoother. A lot smoother. That's it.

It's TN.

I just got word from Scribby (the guy from Overlord Computer) that this ASUS monitor is a TN panel.

If it means anything to anyone I got a chance to see GSYNC in action in person and it's quite impressive actually. Incredibly smooth picture regardless of the frame rate.

Not sure if I'd pay $800 for a monitor with Gsync quite yet, but when prices come down a bit I'll hop on the bandwagon. It's a really cool technology.
