having serious buyers remorse right now

I doubt the new batch of Swifts have the previous issues that seemed over exaggerated to begin with. Every Asus product i own is top of the line in every aspect, and i wouldn't expect any different when i finally get my hands on 1 at the right price.

Another vote here for the Swift being pretty much the best TN panel I've ever owned. It's out of box colors are nearly *identical* the Acer "Predator" IPS screen it's mounted right next two. The IPS is just a teensy bit more saturated but the Swift is 95% of it's performance. They are both great gaming monitors and with both, all depend on whether you get a good panel (more so with the Acer screen than the Swift, I think).

Enjoy it ... in my opinion, the Swift is basically the second best gaming screen one can get (for me); others, especially hard core competitive FPS players, will still prefer the Swift.

And like the other dude said ... "now go get drunk and forget like it never happened!" LMAO!

My buddy just bought one from the recent Amazon sale and got a pixel perfect April 2015 panel. I've had mine since August 2014 and love every moment of using it. thumb.gif

Mine showed up today. Pixel perfect, no pixel inversion problems, and 1440P 144 Hz is simply gorgeous compared to the 1080P 60 Hz I've been using for years.

Colors aren't quite as saturated as the IPS monitors I had before, but the gaming experience is far better.

G Sync is so fluid. It's amazing.

guys plz help, I have been using my monitor for about 1 year with no problems, but now my ASUS PG278Q got half of the screen with blurry/fuzzy text and washed out colors.

About the left-most quarter of my screen is more fuzzy than the rest of the display.

For example, if take an icon on my desktop and place it in the right bottom corner, the text is sharp and clear. If I move it to the far
left of the screen, however, it becomes fuzzier and harder to read.

Or if I have a text document open, the text in the right corner of the screen will look fine, but the text on the far-left or middle will
look almost as if it's half-bolded and fuzzy.
Tried to reinstall drivers and connect cable to another graphic card connector, but didn't help at all.

Please help..what to do ?

What about light bleed? That is the deal breaker for me, no matter how good the pixels are.

I got lucky on mine. There's one spot of backlight bleed in the bottom right corner but I have to really look for it to spot it while gaming. From what I understand, backlight bleed is like the silicon lottery where some win and some lose.

In comparison, the IPS glow on my last monitors was much more noticeable.

This problem happens often. It could be the gsync module or it could be the panel itself. The Benq XL2730Z, which has a realtek scaler (Freesync) has had the same types of failures on it, often blurry text in a quadrant of the screen. There's no fix except to RMA it.

Having the same problem lately too where it keeps turning itself on, or at least I've noticed it more lately and yes it is very annoying.

I came to the conclusion it was the monitor PSU too before seeing your post because I also have the issue where it doesn't power on sometimes and I have to pull the power.

If I pull the power from the monitor and put it back in it doesn't fix it, but if I pull the power from the plug and then put the plug back in it fixes it.

@Amperial Did you get your PSU replaced and did it fix the issue? I'm planning on contacting the place I purchased it from and seeing if they will send me another PSU.
