[ASUS] RoG Swift PG278Q Discussion Thread - Page 69

Resolution and color go hand in hand. Its funny that everyone here can agree they want higher resolution without understanding the role color plays in a high resolution image. Responsiveness is awesome too, but I'll sacrifice those few milliseconds.

This Asus screen has "potential" to be an awesome monitor. For those who prefer an IPS 1440, there are already plenty for sale. Dell just announced a 28" 4k for 699. For those that don't care much about motion smoothness, that's the way to go. This brings us back to the, can your graphics card run games at 4k? No point in trying to game on 4k if all you have is a Radeon 7870 and have to turn settings way down. 1080p on Ultra, while being smooth at 120hz is better than 2k or 4k on med or low settings.

120hz is definitly an advantage, but as far as 1080p ultra, 2k and certainly 4k at medium will look a lot better if maybe not as smooth.

How would you be able to see anything with such a small monitor with such a high resolution? I have a hard time seeing things on my 27" 2560 x 1440 monitor, things get so small. I need to zoom in on webpages, spreadsheets etc.

Same for me Vega. After you did the VG248QE's for me, I'll never be able to go back to having matte film. If I end up getting one of these it'll likely be shipped to your doorstep first if you're still offering the service when the time comes!

Comparable to an E-IPS display in terms of color reproduction and accuracy.

Great! Sounds like this might be my display then.

Yea.....

That is such a scary thing for myself, removing film on a new display like that. What if you break it? What if it goes wrong!? I wonder if they will offer a semi-matte finish on these as well.....

Just saw this panel in person.

It's colors are pretty good, a little bit worse than the PB278. Viewing angles are also not bad.

If you're using it for gaming and average stuff, this monitor is perfect. If you want something for color correction, obviously this is not the one for you.

If you have any other questions please ask.

I for one don't really have a problem gaming on TN or IPS. I had a Sammy S27A950D which was about the best TN panel I've ever seen and the color shift on it was minimal side-to-side (it was bad from extreme above or below but who looks at their screen at that angle). I then replaced it with two 1440p Shimians with the IPS panels and they are also fantastic looking. I do miss the fluidity and lack of tearing on the Sammy but then I couldn't really go back to 1080p either. If this new 1440p 120Hz monitor has a TN panel on par with the S27A950D then I really don't see the problem with it being a TN panel as the color shift when sitting in front of the monitor gaming was minimal.

The PB278 has a PLS panel. So if the color is close to that monitor, I'd say it's a win from a gaming perspective.

I might end up keeping my 2713HM and add this as a secondary monitor for gaming only. I would love to see this in person but I don't know if box stores like Best Buy will have it, I might have to contact Micro Center and see. Any idea on retail availability?

Tiger Direct might get them...
