[PC PER] CES 2015: ASUS MG279Q WQHD Gaming Monitor with 144Hz IPS Panel - Page 135  

post #1341 of 1411
Thanks. Is it the time to buy this screen (6 month old) or other models may be more interesting in freesync QHD?
post #1342 of 1411
Hey guys i searched a lot and find best putting it here.So far we tested TOTAL 3 MG279Q and all of them bottom right corner IPS GLOW
First photo is my first panel showing BLB / GLOW

Second i RMA'ed and get THIS

Third one was tested in store and there was a bottom right corner IPS GLOW issue actually all panels have this issue right,did some research.
So my question is: i think there is no BLACK LIGHT BLEED on second photo right ? Should i keep use it or RMA again:) also no dead pixel or dust inside:o:o

I have it smile.gif MG279Q. Super happy for gaming, it is perfect. No ghosting with freesync in game.

By cons in browser I have big issues with the text on firefox and chrome. Ghosting when scrolling. And above text unclear. I tried to play with vivid and sharpness without much success. An idea? It can be the zoom ?
post #1345 of 1411
I have the text issue too and sometimes the vertical double-bar in the middle, try FPS Mode or sRGB mode with VividPixel 0 Tracefree 0 or even better get a second monitor .

The vertical line discussed previously here is very annoying, sometimes it's there, sometimes not. I cannot find a pattern or solution to fix, I even tried several cables but I believe it's the graphic card issue (Sapphire R9 380 4GB), with the Intel on-board graphic it's not there...

Overall it's so nice for gaming that I simply can't send it back so I ended buying a second screen for productivity Benq BL2411 1920 x 1200 GREAT!

I haven't the vertical bar problem and a limited fps glow.

http://reho.st/self/03b7d034a371c3e0480a13368ec32b78f20bb291.jpg with brightness 0.

But really text rendering is very very average! I'm testing sharpness 50 + 25 vivid.

Also i have a weird range in crimsons :

After countless inside fights and many hours spent reading reviews and comparisons, I have decided to return my MG279 and to drop my Sapphire ATI R9 380 4GB card too.

For now, I feel relieved... my last month was a constant fight to improve my gaming experience within a budget.

Let another round begin: NVIDIA & Gsync , no budget smile.gif







The blue sky color degradation appears when using DP or miniDP, the doubling-vertical line is not good when aiming smile.gif it's only visible at 90 Hz or 144 Hz but I believe my video card is faulty.

I just got a "replacement" the Acer Predator Z35, which is huge/large, it's a TV smile.gif it's almost twice: the size, the price and font size.
I'm not sure I will keep this one, for office work the fonts are too pixelated because of the big DOT pitch of 0.32mm .
I'm contemplating getting a 24' inch 144hz for BF4 and a 42 inch Sony for " immersive gaming " .




On the Acer Z35 the colors and contrast are superb, no glow, no blb, nothing bad so far, except desktop fonts !

Just to let you know,
I have returned the Acer Predator Z35 too, because of a ghosting trail of 4 cm long on testufo.com/#test=ghosting at 200Hz and I didn't like the huge font dpi 0.32 it wasn't worth 1300 US$ .
I just got a BenQ XL2730Z with 200 US$ off, which I believe ended my travel in the "wonderful" world of gaming monitors and I'm waiting "patiently" for the new R9 Fury X2 card.
