i'm askign this, because my monitor already came with the coating removed. i got it from craigslist.

So far the screen color/contrast closely match my old 1440p korean IPS monitor. it's just the viewing angles are bad (since it's a TN). i needed to calibrate from NVIDIA control panel to get the desired results, but overall very happy with it.

My question is:

how do you get completelly rid of left-over smudges?

the old owner did.........a half ass job at it. i mean the coating is completelly removed, which makes the colors pop out. however, when the monitor is off or with a static image i can see smudge residue in some parts of the monitor.

is this normal for a anti-glare coating removal?
I think this guy did a swift as well can't find the post he recommends distilled water and microfibre clothe on a cool display.

Pretty much every 4k monitor today seems to be crap. Terrible response times and motion clarity. 4k is not really feasible with today's GPUs so you're better off waiting until next year when we'll have 4k 120 Hz monitors (hopefully OLED).

I've had my PG278Q for around a little over a month now. I generally love the monitor, but there is one nagging issue that is driving me crazy. During fast motion with lighter colors I notice vertical lines on the screen. It's almost like a screen door effect but it's only vertical. There's a thread on this forum that mentions the issue:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1526956/guide-to-the-problems-with-the-asus-rog-swift

I am able to reproduce the issue on a near-static screen within Rocket League by viewing the plasma rocket trail. On my Swift it seems like the entire transparency effect is displayed incorrectly.

An individual on YouTube took a video from WoW showing the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er6W0Hlce1M

My question is this - do all of PG278Qs suffer from this issue? If so, do all of the other 27" WQHD monitors suffer from it as well? It's my understanding they all use the same AU Optronics panel. If so, that's highly disappointing. I don't want an IPS monitor for my gaming monitor due to IPS glow and the general QC issues of the high-refresh rate IPS monitors, but this vertical line issue is driving me insane. I'm sure most users would never notice it but it stands out like crazy to me.

Best Buy will replace the monitor for me but I'll have to box my current one up, bring it back to the store, then wait for them to ship me a new monitor. my current Swift has very minimal backlight bleed and one dead pixel that's hardly noticeable, so I'm kind of hesitant to play the panel lottery by returning it. However, if this vertical line issue is a defect rather than a property of the panel then I'm willing to give it a try. Can any other ROG Swift owners provide some input? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, prophecy0, the short answer to this question is yes. All 8-bit WQHD TN panels (the only ones in use right now manufactured by AUO) seem to have this problem. Look here at the photo comparison section: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/dell_s2716dg.htm#display_comparisons The column inversion behavior in these panels is visible as vertical lines on the ghosts. This is not technically a defect, but a design flaw, so you will not ever get a panel without this behavior. The somewhat good news is that this is less and less visible as your frame rate and, thus, refresh rate increases in G-Sync mode. If it still bothers you, and you cannot do with an IPS, maybe consider the Z35 with a VA panel: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/acer_predator_z35.htm#display_comparisons

Definitely not as fast as the TN or IPS panels, but you get better black levels and black crush can be reduced with the curved panel.

Thanks for the reply! I can live with the issue. I'll just continue to use this monitor for a few years and by that time hopefully OLED will be affordable. I was going to try swapping my monitor out for another but you'ved saved me from that headache.

I have not seen it on mine but I did have the dell version of the swift and it had those lines on it and it was bugging me like hell so I sent the dell back and just stuck with the single Swift for now.

I think it comes down to luck and what type of panel you get. In todays day and age you would think quality would be much higher.

I got a little problem over here and don't really know if its a case for rma or i'm just stupid.
every other monitor i've ever owned I just plugged in and it worked (at least - not ideal - but it showed somthing)
I bought the Swift today and its standing right in front of me atm, it is all plugged in (it show the logo, when turned on) and connected through displayport to my 980ti.
now the problem is - it won't show up on the computer. not in the windows built in screen configuration nor in the nvidia control panel. also not showing up in the device manager.

i reinstalled my computer yesterday with windows 10, reinstalled the gpu drivers (uninstalled with ddu) tried different ports. just nothing -.- i'm pretty pissed right now, can you help me?


/// yes - it was just me beeing retarded. wrong port! sorry guys!

Yes its normal that your LED is red all the time ( its because of g-sync which is also active on desktop )
And imo you should deactivate vsync and activate a frame limiter for all of your games which locks your framerate to 143 FPS ( not 144 FPS ) because without vsync your fps are not locked and if they go over 144 fps, g-sync is not active anymore. And with 143 FPS, its active all the time.
