[Various] ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q & GTX 780Ti Matrix review - Page 9  

post #81 of 1242
I guess i'm not affected by color accuracy.
My VG236H doesn't look too bad next to my QX2710.
The only thing that i'm worried about is the matte screen of the swift.

You could also buy another 780 if the prices go down after the next gen is released, thats when I got my current (fake) MSI lightnings for great price biggrin.gif

(fake because lightnings sold as rebadged power editions after the GTX 770 came out).

Oh no! I didn't realize it only had one input! I have two computers that share a monitor and one of my biggest issues is having to physically transfer my second screen Catleap back and forth between the computers. Damn.

The big fat question is if it is worth the upgrade from a Yamakasi Catleap? Is the whole G-sync worth it? Its so damn expensive.
post #85 of 1242
I suppose thats a problem with high res display port monitors, they only have a display port input.

I have a DVI and HDMI input on my Acer, and it doesnt even have speakers for the latter.

Just read through the thread. I'm surprised some think this will be close to IPS in image quality. I may be more sensitive to IQ issues than some. There is no way this monitor looks "close to or nearly the same" as an IPS screen. I'm still interested in this monitor, but I do know it isn't going to be the end-all-be-all of monitors. A couple guys that say they have the screen saying it looks dead on to an IPS is almost laughable to go off of. I've heard that story before with monitors and was extremely disappointed. I don't need IPS quality to still be interested in the screen though.

On another note, anyone know of a Display port switch that I could use to switch between monitors with just a button press? I don't need a complicated KMV, just two DP in and one out.

IPS screens can be bad too if you get a cheapo 6 bit one. Ofc the best IPS are still gonna be better than this, but this still has the latest and most up to date 8 bit TN technology, and I cannot fault anything about my current TN monitor so I don't understand why people hate TN so much.

Why do people feel the need to cry doom over the image quality when they haven't seen it themselves?

The people who have seen it and said it was NEAR, which isn't "dead on", aren't just random people on the forum. They are rather active and respected members, one person who said it looked good is even a hardware rep.

Just because the Ford Pinto was crap doesn't mean every vehicle Ford made after that was crap. Being TN doesn't default it to some hell of which image quality can never escape.....

near != dead on

TN != absolute crap

Hell, and we aren't even talking about color calibration yet, something almost no one actually does with their display. They take them out of the box maybe screw with a few settings and call it good. Calibration can go a long ways on any display!

I tried calibrating my current screen, but it made me turn down its epic high brightness in gaming mode and I hated that. So I didnt bother and left it alone so I could use its super brightness and colours.

Speaking of brightness:

Sony X Black - 450 cd/m2
Acer G24 - 400 cd/m2
Asus rog swift - 350 cd/m2.

But both the sony and acer set to full brightness is just pure insanity and an unplayable blob of eye pain, so that much isnt really needed. Also I forget that the backlight on my Sony died a while ago, so now its just an over saturated high contrast screen, but I wont need it at all after getting the new screen.

Well the brightness and gamma still work, but the backlight setting does nothing and its lost its high colour vibrancy it used to have. But its ancient and worthless so it doesnt matter.

Am I the only person here that actually doesn't find IPS all that enjoyable? Constant severe ghosting issues due to slow pixel response times, and IPS glow really put a damper on the tech. Yeah, colors are beautiful, but at what cost?

 

This is really noticeable after you've used a panel like the LG 34um95. Its aspect ratio is so massive that even if you have a non-backlight bleeding panel, the IPS glow is a bit more noticeable on average than your 16:9. And after having noticed it on that monitor, it really tunes your eyes (unfortunately) to see it on pretty much every IPS panel, regardless of aspect ratio. IPS glow is annoying, and it is often forgotten as a CON of IPS.

 

Monitors are a game of having to give up something to gain something else. There are pros and cons to every panel type, including IPS.

 

And if the TN panel on this monitor is anything like the 4K TN panels in quality and viewing angles, then I can wholeheartedly say this will come extremely close to IPS in terms of overall quality. Viewing angles on 4K TN monitors are actually quite good (I've seen the Asus PB287Q and Dell P2815Q in person). And the colors aren't all that shabby to boot.
