Dark Souls, SOMA, Dead Space 1, Alien vs Predator, Thief and many more. Anything that is dark and has a lot of pitch black locations.

Witcher 3- caves and some dungeons (without fires).

I have Dead Space, Thief and The Witcher 3, probably go with Dead Space due to the current lack of graphical power. Most likely stuck using this monitor at 1080p 60hz for 24 days.

Let us know and post some screens. To take more realistic screen of your IPS glow record video (without light) of your monitor and either post video or take a screenshot from video. By taking normal photo shot you always make glow worse then it is.

Keep us posted.

Ordered mine, I should get it 21.X or 22.X. Fingers crossed. It is fresh banch so I hope I will get lucky.

Here we are many months after initial anouncement. I've said it many times before, but I will not jump on the IPS hype bandwagon. IPS are great for movie enthousiasts, mobile devises such as smartphones and ipads, portable devices such as laptops and cameras. IPS are used by artists, movie enthousiasts, wheters its bright foto editing or other artwork related things... but not gamers. Go ahead and ready your pitchforks and call me a blasphemer, but I have never been convinced about IPS for gaming. I'd take lesser viewing angle over ips bleed, backlight bleed and panel uniformity issues. You shouldn't play tennis while watching movies on your RoG Swift anyway. Its intended for PC gamers mainly with keyboard and mouse on a desk, not console controllers on the couch whilst eating popcorn from the other side of the room.

So lets see... PG278Q vs PG279Q, whats new really? HDMI? Seriously, don't buy a premium pc gaming monitor to play console games on it locked at 30 fps and 900p resolutions. I don't see this as an added value for me personally. Not to mention adding the extra hdmi inputs will probably remove the initial ''instant on'' feature of the RoG Swift, wich was nice imo. As for 165 Hz? Its a start I guess, but there is a point with diminishing returns and needing heavier hardware to run games at that refresh rate. I would like to see it in action with a game such as CSGO though. Removal of 3D Vision is very dissapointing as well. Original RoG Swift is still the master of backlight strobing too.

My current PG278Q has perfect backlight uniformity, with nice black colours and no ips bleed. Tbh, only reason I see why Asus decided to jump the IPS hype bandwagon is due to a cult following started by the likes of LinusTechTips with Acer's XHU270 first IPS 144Hz panel. Overated is all I have to say though. Maybe I'l wait for 4K 144Hz OLED tecvhnology, lets see what drawbacks it will have besides the price.

I think the PG279Q appears to be more of a hybrid multi-purpose monitor, rather then ''premium gaming'' it stands for.

The gaming is just a meaningless marketing label anyway. You just need to decide what affects image quality more: Poor colors and viewing angles on a TN or backlight bleed and glow on an IPS. Pick which one bothers you less, and go with that monitor.

This would indicate that IPS is best if the monitor in question has minimal bleeding and glow.

Your post implies that TN viewing angles are good enough when sitting in front of the monitor, which they are not. I'm sure you've noticed that TN screens are darker above eye level and brighter below it, not to mention even moving slightly changes the picture you see on the screen.

I will be using two GTX 980ti Lighting SLI overclocked with a 1080p 60hz TN monitor until the PG348Q comes out frown.gif

Mine has the "QC Passed" sticker on the box. I've also noticed a very small bleed in the top right corner... but it seems it's because the panel is a bit .. loose on that side. If i gently apply pressure to the top right corner the panel moves inside a bit and the bleed goes away. This is the only fault I found and the bleed is very small, about 1cm and not leaking a lot of light so I can live with that.
I made a post on this earlier, when I designed displays for the military, we had what we called glow marks and they were caused by hardware being over torqued when mounting the display to the chassis.

The display is probably slightly warped possibly.

Yes, the same here. When I apply pressure the bleeding changes, on the top right side it goes away but on the left it becomes worse. I've now got the Dell P2715Q 27" 3840x2160 next to the Asus and they look like this:

I have adjusted the exposure on the camera so that it shows what I see with my own eyes. Image was take in a 100% dark room. As you can see the PG279Q has a few areas that are not perfect while the Dell has no bleeding at all (but more IPS glow). The thing is... if you judge the panel by my image, you would maybe say it's bad... but if you turn the lights on in the room and put a dark scene from a film, it doesn't look bad at all. Games also look good and you can't really see the bleeds unless maybe there is a 100% black loading screen or something close to that.

Of course, it's not ideal... but I'm not sure how many times you'd have to RMA this monitor to get a perfect one. Not even sure a perfect one exists. Some reported issues with pixels, others with physical problems, others bleed and excessive IPS glow. I have some BLB and none of the others... hard to decide if I want to get a new one or not...
