So after just over a year of having this monitor I have a problem... Text is now appearing blurry on parts of the screen. The amount of real estate with blurry text changes with refresh rate. Higher the refresh rate, the more screen area with blurry text. The bottom left is the only portion which is constantly clear.

Also, at 144Hz there is a pulsation/flashing effect. Most noticeable with a black background and white text. All of this has started in the last few days. Just turned on my computer one day and here we are.

I have tried:
different refresh rates
nvidia drivers installed vs not
custom resolution/timings

Any other ideas? My $200 QNIX next to my swift is clear as day.

Does the behavior continue with g-sync disabled?

My 278 had similar issues that was due to a failing g-sync module.

My second Swift shipped with some dust under the display and has been having color uniformity issues. But i've dealt with it for a year so far, except now am wanting to process another RMA and hope the new manufacturing dates are less problematic. Has anyone completed an RMA recently and can attest to the newer fabrication. Are they less faulty?

Also Gsync v2? Are the newer manufactured ones using Gsync v2 modules? Also can someone who knows chime in about what the differences are in gysnc v1 vs. v2? Is it just having the AC adapter inside the panel, the HDMI and 4k? Or are there any other variable refresh rate adjustments in V2 that are better than V1?

Thank you!

I can say that Gsync v2 is not available for the PG278Q and it won't be available for it.
Because GSync v2 is nothing else than Gsync v1 just with multi port support (Instead of only DP, there's DP and HDMI now... e.g. PG279Q, XB271HU etc.)

I don't own the Swift PG278Q anymore (for about 6 months or so) but I can say that I had one October 2014, May 2015, July 2015 and September 2014... - May 2015 with 1 dead pixel, October 2014 nothing, September 2014 with 2 dead pixels and 1 bright pixel, July 2015 nothing.
But I was returning them all the time because of the god damn Pixel inversion issue, which I thought was a defect and not a technology problem which have all AUO 144Hz TN Panels (PG278Q, XL2730Z, S2716DG etc. )
Personally, I don't think they improve their quality control. So its still a lottery I think, even if its not that bad like the lottery with PG279Q, XB270HU, XB271HU etc.

If the dust and color uniformity issue is bothering you, I would return it. I don't think it could get worse... Well it could, but I'm pretty sure that this won't be the case smile.gif I wish you good luck, even if its sad to do this because the majority of the monitors should be just flawless......

So I tried nvidia inspector tho even with 143fps set in the frame limiter it still goes above that any idea what else needs changing for it to take effect ?

Did you set the frame rate limiter in the Global profile in Inspector? Did you make sure to hit apply? If so then you can try RivaTuner Statistics Server instead.

Just wanted to say that I finally got some hands on time calibrating and playing around with the 278Q.. I currently have three 279Qs myself and was super impressed with color quality and viewing angles of the 278Q.. Side by side after calibrating I nearly couldn't tell the difference in average use between the IPS and TN.

What an excellent monitor if you can get a good sample.. If I could do my setup all around I would have gotten three of the 278Qs instead.

Only problems I find are with the pixel inversion and the TN gamma shift. The monitor "feels" faster than the XB270HU in general usage, probably because there is less blur due to the faster TN switching overall.

It should display the number you type in I'm pretty sure, so in this case 143. Can you screencap what it looks like?
