[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 199

post #1981 of 9443
My advice is to wait. Wait for Acer's new models and then decide.
This is what i'm doing, waiting. At first i wanted to buy 1080p monitor but then i saw news about these two and now i'm just waiting. If they fail i'm going back to search for 1080p.

The Acer pricing is going to be interesting. If they price it at £650 it'll be popular than the Asus.

Scan let you return monitors that have bleeding but only if it's severe. Their policy regarding dead pixels is uses the ISO 13406-2 standard meaning the acceptance range is 3 bright pixels and 5 dead pixels. Equal to or lower being acceptable. Your best bet is Amazon. Their returns policy is glorious, they'll let you return it with 1 dead pixel.Obviously the issue being they aren't accepting preorders at the moment.

Product is not even out yet so you are basically buying unknown, untested product smile.gif. I would wait till next week at least if I were you. Me personally I wait for new Acer XB first to compare both monitor and prices.

I agree. I wish I couldn't preorder but I sadly have to as I'd have no monitor at all.

There's no such thing as 'letting' you return a monitor. You can return it without question for no reason if you so wish, in the UK under our consumer regulations. You may have meant this anyway, but it's only if you want them to pay for the return must your 'fault' meet certain requirements... although this can be a grey area with many retailers. How to determine the line between acceptable and unacceptable BLB for example. I certainly echo your Amazon comment... they are excellent for returns no matter what. I've never had to pay a penny for returning a single thing I've bought direct from Amazon (not so easy if it's via someone else selling on there). Given the risk buying any monitor these days, particularly an Acer, they would be my first choice by a long shot.

First of all you quoted the wrong person.

But yes I did mean what you said.

If you go to the gov.uk website it will tell you that refunds don't need to be given if they simply don't want the item anymore.

The ASUS monitors now have a date and "Scan" is normally very good with dates

I couldn't risk having to wait much longer than the claimed release date so I pre-ordered it today, since I had the money planned for it anyway. I sure hope we won't run into issues with the first batch.

Thats what I did, I ordered myself today decent IPS 1080p monitor just for 220 euro (24", DVI, HDMI, Display, IPS, full height regulation with 180 degree positioning), since I want second monitor for work and web browsing anyway to pair with on of those two. Only 60Hz, but I don't need more in 1080p. After new Acer XB is out I will see which 1440p I will get. And I hope when XB comes out prices will even a bit, since now PG is little overpriced imo.

Well, Hope Dies Last wink.gif. But in terms of hardware I always prefer to be sure, especially with top-end expensive stuff.

I'll be contacting Scan tomorrow to find out if the date is confirmed. I'll have to get it earlier than the rest of my build but I'm down for saving £40!

Yeah, normally I'd wait like I've done for years when it comes to CPU's for example. I usually gather information then look for the batch number that can overclock the most, but in this case I couldn't. You can't always be smart, especially if you have a really poor replacement monitor (BenQ XL2420T). We will just have to wait and see how it goes, I guess. biggrin.gif
