[Official] ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q Owner's club - Page 615

post #6141 of 6151
well crap. my PG278Q just started the dreaded blurry text and flickering. i'm just beginning to search for solutions, so far lowering down to 100Hz has fixed it (but i gather this is just a temporary fix). anyone have any experience with this?

Anyone know if there is a fix for the line down the center of the screen problem? I can usually disable and then re enable gsync to fix it but it always comes back.

Haven't posted in this thread since....around 2015?

Have a question. I have a PG278Q. Since release there have been multiple revisions including the PG279Q (IPS) and the PG278QR. Any improvements on the latter from my original model that would make it worth "upgrading"?

I just picked up a PG278QR yesterday. I'm frankly kinda blown away how good it looks for a TN panel and given the sentiment on most of this thread. It sits with my PG348Q right next to it (an IPS panel) that I keep calibrated with a Spyder5 regularly and out of the box it this TN looks great.

I couldn't be happier.

Looks like this refresh version (the R) is improved panel color, HDMI port, and 165hz. I throw my calibrator on it later and report the results.

I'd love to know if you found anything on this. My PG278Q just starting having these issues as well after 2 years.

All of my sleuthing on the internet tells me the panel is borked and the only way to fix it is to RMA back to ASUS. I haven't done it yet but I'm going to. Sort of a bummer. In the mean time I picked up a 40" Samsung 4K tv to try that out as a display. Pretty awesome.

there is alot of pages, so i dont know if this has been asked before.
But is there a way to overclock this monitor to 165 hz, or is it a different panel in this then the 279?

Was cleaning mine over the weekend and there must have been something on the microfiber cloth i was using because a small scratch has developed on my screen, it's not that noticeable unless it's on a white background but it's still annoying. Is there any known method for filling in or removing scratches on screens?

well to be honest the only way is too replace, the skill level to polish out a scratch, never mind the polishing media required are both hard to find things

I have my monitor for a while. The first one they gave me was sent to RMA, weird screen problem, blurry text half of screen etc..

The new one.. refurbished.. I insisted on getting a brand new but it was impossible.

THE PROBLEM: Black Flicker from time to time, very odd, happens one an hour, happens twice at a time sometimes happens 3 times in a row. Black black black miliseconds.

Sometimes i get the feeling that it does this more often when i leave PC and put down the headset, first i thought it was a accelerator in my Logitech artemis and that it was some application switching settings or what not.. but it dosnt seem to be like this. The flicker goes on even if the headset is unplugged. Any ideas??
