[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 184

post #1831 of 9392
Basically it's just a Acer HU with a better menu system and bezel. I'm surprised at their negative outcome of 165 Hz mode, but the step up from 144 Hz was always going to be a very small one.

Really the only thing I can think of for the quite higher price is that Asus actually tosses back the panels with dust specks/flaws etc. Like "binning" the AUOptronics panels since their quality control was so poor. This day and age to have these monitors produced in a non environmentally controlled factory and dust specks to get in panel layers is quite silly.

I am honestly not really surprised that 165Hz would not be working optimally. Luckily it has a lot of options to switch between different refresh rates so there is not a lot to lose except for the price tag. So far I don't see enough proof to conclude that 144Hz is worse than 144Hz with the XB270HU.

Though ULMB is probably still the best option if you can maintain the frame rate regardless of the 120Hz limit.

If anyone is interested I posted the review to /r/Monitors and someone is cleaning up the bad translation done by browsers. It's not perfect but it's a lot better than letting Chrome translate it. Direct link here.

Hmm well if 144hz is good then that is ok, but if anything over 120hz is worse, then that is a bit crap, I would be happy with the acer XB270HU performance with better quality control and stand. I already said in a previous post that I thought 165hz might end up worse than 144hz so I was sort of expecting that, but it really needs to work well at 144hz or that is a poor show.

this make me happy:


What distinguishes AHVA panels from many IPS panels is that there is no glow effect. There will be no yellow film over the image angles, but it is mainly the lighter, bluer blackness labeled. Or to the environment begins mirrored by reflexfiltet. Panel Contrast is close to 1200: 1, but this is influenced by the color settings.

But its the same panel as the XB270HU and MG279Q which both had very obvious glow, not sure about that, unless they actually did something with the newer panel other than make it thin bezel.

If thats true and it actually has no glow then that would be great, but its not likely TBH.

Also there were pictures of the PG279Q with loads of IPS glow, so no idea.

I've not heard this said before and from the evidence of seeing MANY AHVA panels with very evident glow, it sounds like a load of crap to me.

I think the issue regarding quality control is the panel itself. It's a recurring theme with the XB270HU and MG279Q and they both use the same panel and as you can guess the PG279Q uses it too. CallsignVega makes a good point by saying that Asus may cherry pick their panels to avoid the qc hate Acer received. I think a lot of the price delta is because of the Rog branding.
