[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 228

post #2271 of 9443
Is there a visible difference between 1ms (TN) vs 4ms (IPS)?

PG279Q or PG 278Q?

He had a perfectly good monitor with two dead pixels. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't cry wolf over it.

Some people would say no, others would say yes. Personally, I don't notice it, but others do. You won't really notice in isolation unless you've always had 1ms TN screens, and even then it might not bother you. Until you try it, you won't know for sure. This really should be of relatively small concern if considering the PG279Q though, as it seems like the above example, trying to find one without faults (stuck/dead pixels, excessive BLB and/or glow) will be the biggest frustration! I fear we may have a repeat of the XB270HU on our hands here... mad.gif

If I got a monitor that was perfect except for 2 dead pixels, I would probably keep it, BLB, dirt and uniformity problems are worse than dead pixels. Although depends where they are and what color.

They can be INCREDIBLY annoying if anywhere other than the very corners, and even then you will see them, trust me... I had two stuck ones on a previous monitor and it drove me nuts. Maybe it's a personal thing and some people don't mind, but you can only say that if you've lived with a monitor that's had them for some time. At the price of these premium monitors like the PG279Q, I wouldn't accept a single one.

My current monitor has ZERO backlight bleed or uniformity problems, but 1 dead pixel, I would take the pixel over BLB or uniformity problems, but this is a NEC CCFL monitor so I doubt I will get another one with zero BLB with a LED backlight from Asus etc. Its almost funny how this is 7 years old and new monitors are a lot WORSE for these things, with technology improving they should be better not worse.

I'm not sure why people think spending 800+ (euro/pounds/etc) on a monitor and receiving one with 2-3 dead pixels is ok. It's a new product and I would expect all pixels to work. If you go and buy a new car, would it be ok if it had one or two scratches or dings? No, it's a new product and it should be....as new.

I've been using Apple and Dell monitors and never had any dead pixels, dirt or any other issues. I'm now interested in switching to a high refresh IPS display and the Asus PG289Q is the perfect candidate... however, giving all the issues people report, I'm think I might either have to wait a few more months for them to sort out the QC (will that ever happen?) or place an order for 3 monitors just to make sure I increase my odds of receiving a good display. I'm willing to spend up to £1000 for a monitor with these specs, however, I don't want to spend one pound if it comes with faults from day one... that's simply not acceptable.

No question, monitors are going backwards in many respects. Sure tech is advancing, but IPS was better than this years ago, and shoddy production processes are putting all kinds of dirty junk out there in the marketplace that wouldn't have even left the factory before. Buying any new monitor has become a lottery. All you read now is IPS being slated for glow and bleed issues... that was NEVER the case when it first hit the scene, and it angers me the likes of AUO and LG (panel manufacturers) are doing so much damage to its reputation to the point where TN is actually being considered a viable alternative. How far the mighty have fallen. frown.gif

I would never accept dead pixels, not with this price. Some are ok with it, and that's fine, some says, dead pixels are hard to see on high resolution, maybe i have a good eyesight, because i can see them very easy, and than can't stop looking at the dead pixels. I can't enjoy the monitor, even if it was covered in cold.
