Ye it's working at 144 now, get about 120 on average at max. It's like a different game at that fps, amazing.

Got my PG278Q today, 2 dead pixels..... one top left and bottom of screen so might keep it, not really sure yet. Coming from the PG279Q I have to say I enjoy this more for the most part, the IPS glow was driving me crazy on that monitor.

I'm not sure what is exactly about this monitor but compared to the PG279Q this looks grainy and weird on really light images. Does these 2 monitors use 2 different coatings? It's a bit distracting not going to lie but not nearly as bad as the IPS glow on the PG279Q.

Sigh seems like they refuse to make these monitors the beast that they should be, wish someone would come out with a nice monitor for around 1500, I'd buy it if it didn't have the problems like the Accer or the Asus is having.

For anyone of you guys claiming dead pixels, did anyone of you try this website yet?

I had little black dot on the top right of my PG278Q, I thought it was a dead pixel. I actually blew on the dot and ran that little test thing and it dissapeared, so I don't know if it was actually dust or a stuck pixel (damn) but yeah, seems like I have no dots on my monitor anymore.

I guess I should be more specific since no ones a mind reader huh?

The pixels on my monitor are dark pixels, the solution you suggested is for bright pixels which maybe stuck as a green blue or red. Mines is black and there's no solution to this that's reasonable

Anyone know why they choose to use a heavier AG coating on the PG278Q then the PG279Q? is it a TN thing or something because this monitor is being held back so much because of it. The AG coating on the PG279Q is much lighter then this

So my swift died last week.
White/grey screen no matter what I did.
Contacted ASUS, they immediately said send it in.
I said are you paying for shipping, because my warranty book says free 2-way shipping.
They never said anything, but later that day, I get a shipping label from Fed-Ex.
I was shocked and very happy.
I have heard horror stories about ASUS customer service, including my own experience previously, but this is good service!

i've had 3 of these for almost 2 years now. my middle one now has the scan line issues that I can't get to away. it's been 4 weeks and 2 days of fighting with asus on the issue. they have no pg278q or pg279q for advanced rma(though 2 of those weeks they claimed they did but due to "internal errors" never sent them to me. I have been going back and forth with them for over a month now.

What a nightmare.

not sure I'll ever buy another asus product ever again...(it's multiple laptops been using their mobos and monitors for like 15 years) I've talked to 4 bosses and so many crappy tech support people, so tired of dealing with them.

Customer service is just filled with 9-5'ers who give zero ****s. They are just collecting a paycheck.

If only LG or Samsung would get into the gaming monitor business and come out with a BA 1440p 144hz monitor.... wouldn't even care if it costed alot. Or EVGA....

This has improved a lot colors for me.

What's the point in using pc monitors color profile when the nvidia one just over writes it anyway, I can only switch between either using their profile or the nvidia settings.

I think the only NVidia color setting I changed was the brightness; I set it to 45%. Doing so eliminated an awful 'edging' I would see in many of my wallpapers - such as lens flares not fading into darker areas; the color would just drop off completely. Color, Contrast, Gamma, Vibrance are all default values.
