[ASUS] RoG Swift PG278Q Discussion Thread - Page 76  

post #751 of 8206
I can't stand bad TN's (like my laptop screen for instance) but the good ones are certainly tolerable considering the upside of 120Hz+ and lightning fast response times...

I don't mind the 1080p panel in my laptop. Always seems a ton brighter than my benq haha. I haven't owned an ips display and was actually going to buy one of the korean panels till this popped up. This seems like the better option in the long run with g-sync plus 120hz. Just hope if I end up going with another 770 I'd have enough power to run games a decent frame rate for a while.

I run a lot of games in the 100+ fps on a 1440P 120Hz display, and I have Crossfire 7970 which your 770 are about on par with.

good to know. Just hope its enough power to skip the 800 series. Would rather not have to throw a bunch more money at graphics cards in a couple months. tongue.gif

The last TN I had was a Samsung, and while it had color shift, it wasn't nearly as bad as people are making out color shift to be. If I went enough off axis, you could see it, but come on! Something else to consider, is the anti-glare coating on almost every TN panel, and how much that impacts the look.

I see two groups in here right now....

"Motion blur of IPS is too bad to handle! It will make your eyes bleed!"

and

"TN color shift is so bad, if you even twitch a neck muscle, the screen goes blank because it shifted so bad!"

The truth of the matter is that most of you are exaggerating both issues. What is not exaggerated is the market for this panel, it is massive! Like TN or not, like Asus or not, that doesn't change the fact that Asus is bringing to market something gamers have wanted for more than a few years now.
Refresh rate?

Completely agree. This debate about TN vs IPS/PLS will go on for a good while but at the end of the day its all about personal preference. I currently use a Dell U2713HM but will get the PG278Q because its everything i have been wanting in a monitor especially since i play alot of FPSs and want that smooth 120hz gameplay at 1440p. I don't wanna deal with overclocking korean panels as well. That's just my preference.

Although my thoughts sound like a broken record at this point I'm one of the very few here who have had the best of both displays in having a Benq 2420tx previously with my current rig. Being able to max out games and take advantage of what both display's have to offer I'm without a doubt voting IPS for gaming. Maybe the other IPS monitor's are terrible performers for gaming. But the PB278Q is an amazing gaming display. It's light years ahead of a TN 1080P 120hz display in gaming experience. Like I've said many times in games like CSS or Quake I can see the need for 120hz. But in games like BF3/BF4, Crysis series, Far Cry series, Metro series or any other newer demanding game with new technology its not even close. I'll reserve judgement of this so called new TN panel until the reviews come out and I'm able to see it in person.


We finally agree on something thumb.gif

I had a high end samsung 120hz tn monitor, and had the asus pb278q 1440p pls for awhile as well, now using the qnix 1440p @ 96 hz and there is no competition, tn panels are awful for color reproduction, and color shift, and viewing angles. We are at the stage where input lag on ips monitors is negligible and not noticeable.

Does high refresh rate matter? Absolutely. Should a high refresh rate come at the cost of using a IPS panel? Absolutely not. These monitors are over priced without a doubt. Yes they are 1440p , 120hz with g-sync but 1440p IPS panels doing 120hz have been on ebay for $300 for a good while now. Charging a extra $500 and adding g-sync and taking away ips for TN makes this ludicrous.

To the people like postaltwinkie saying "this is a new never before tn panel = to eIPS.." well i'm sorry but it doesn't work that way. A TN panel is a TN panel and will have the same pro's and con's as other TN panels in regards to (pros) response time (cons) viewing angles, color reproduction, color shift. Watching that video showing the guy moving it into portrait mode showed this.

If you don't care about color reproduction, then fair enough but just because you don't care about it, doesn't mean that this monitor isn't over priced for what it is.

It's overpriced because there is no competition. And 120Hz Korean monitors can't be compared to 120Hz TNs, they're simply inferior when it comes to motion clarity. This monitor would be an insta-buy from me if it's confirmed to work with lightboost and was a bit cheaper.

I'd rather deal with color shift than sever backlight bleed, dead pixels and garbage build quality. I'm selling my qnix the second this monitor is out.
