[ASUS] RoG Swift PG278Q Discussion Thread - Page 72  

post #711 of 8206
I thought that every G-sycn monitor will have a strobed backlight. I could of sworn i read somewhere that all monitors would have both. I will try and dig up the article

It is currently a selectable choice:
G-SYNC Mode: Better for variable framerates (eliminate stutters/tearing, more blur)
Strobe Mode: Better for constant max framerates (e.g. 120fps @ 120Hz, eliminates blur)

Look, I am all for the advancement of tech, but there isn't any cable company or satellite provider that even offers 4K content. Not to mention any Hollywood entities.
Upscaling is for morons, because it's not made with native content. It's like the useless 240Hz Tv's. Nobody uses it except for sports, and even then you are getting a compromised image.
And while some may scale the game for 4K, they don't scale their textures for it.
It's a market for .001 of consumers this round.
Personally, I like OLED more, because it's not just about PPI, but about image quality.
Just my 2 cents.

The cable and satellite companies are working on it. Expect things to happen in 2015-2016. At least the satellite company I work at is and I'm seeing changes happen in preparation of this with respect to budget, personnel, metrics and technology. This is public knowledge(or common sense) FYI.

With that out of the way, the tech WILL be there within 5 years. This is a much easier change technologically than the transition from SD to HD and Apple's PPI fetish akak retina caused consumers to actually care whereas before they didn't. My phone is over 400 ppi, there's no reason why a TV can't get up to 100 in time.

So you can't have both. You either get 3 780ti for strobbed on high end games or use gsync. :/

I prefer motion clarity to other qualities in monitors.

Not trying to knock you personally so don't take this the wrong way but your hardware spec's are nowhere near where they need to be to take advantage of 1080p 120hz or especially 1440p. Unless your rig is able to bring the most out of what each display has to offer your opinion is invalid imo. And lol at comparing a Catleap to a PB278Q.

Maybe not powerful enough to run ultra but idc about that. I am happy with my FPS with the settings I use and I am able to take advantage of my monitor'a refresh rate. I personally tested the 120Hz Catleap when one of my friends brought his system to my house to do a side by side comparison of strobed TN vs OC'd IPS. He has a 3930K and SLI 780 classys, easily overkill for 1440p. Although I did like the colors and resolution of the Catleap, it was too blurry for me to use.

Exactly what happened to me when I tried my 1440p after being used to my BenQ XL2420TX.

The blurriness of the cheap koreans is over exaggerated by a lot of people around here, especially when they use words like muddy, as soon as i see stuff like that I know they haven't seen or used them ever...

On the other hand I do know the gaming monitors are much clearer, if that makes sense. definitely not "OH MY I CANT USE THE120 HZ IPS ITS TOO BLURRY MY EYESE!!!!"

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.

When sitting roughly 18" to 2 feet away from the monitor, can you notice color shifting at the edges of the screen?

Every other TN panel I've seen around this size suffers from noticeable color shift at the edges (and especially the top/bottom) of the screen.

This is my opinion as well. I could never go back to the color shift of a TN panel, but I can stand the decreased clarity of my 60 Hz IPS vs 120 Hz TN.

Yeah, I'll agree with you there. It's not unusable by any means, it's just not for me.
