[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 279

post #2781 of 9392
*Sigh*

I was initially very impressed and it is a nice monitor, but coming from a 1080p, 120hz monitor I'm not BLOWN away by it like I thought I would be.

For £700 i'm not sure I want to keep it with the dust / dead pixel in the middle

Definitely return it when you still can. Once you spot things like dust in the panel, it's impossible to not notice it every time you use the monitor. I'd try my luck for at least of couple of times to get near perfect one.

Some people have managed to get dust off their screens by moving the dust particle with their finger towards the edge of panel. There's a risk of damage to the panel when doing this, so I would be very careful.

Yeah, I could deal with a small dirt spot that's not too dark if it's far from the center, but right on the center... I'd send that back immediately.

Hello everyone!

I am new here and just wanted to chime in because I've been following this threat for quite a while now. I was very interested in the new GSync monitors coming out, and after reading about the problems with the PG279Q I wanted to wait for the new Acer XB271HU.

A week ago Amazon.de had the XB270HU on sale for 100 € less than regular price, and since I read here that all these IPS screens have the same panel, I figured I might as well go for the old Acer model. I don't need the high HZ and features etc.
New products always have glitches, so I thought maybe Acer improved their older models a bit QC wise.

Got the screen yesterday, and either I am one lucky bastard or Acer really did improve the QC. Production date was JUN15, I have no dead pixels, dust or anything. Also I don't really notice any kind of IPS glow that is out of the norm, or BLB.

Here's some pictures, one in complete darkness, one with flash and one with a table lamp turned on. The blue tint isn't there (at least I cannot see it), that's something to do with the camera (or my photographing skills wink.gif)






so, maybe this helps people who desperately want a new IPS GSync screen. Would love to know if I was just lucky or not!

cheers,

I think you just won the lottery wink.gif I doubt that the ACER improved the quality, but who knows ...

I have just noticed a second bit of dust so its definitely going back either way.

GTA and a few other games I have are stuttering on this monitor, they don't on my old one. Could that be related to GSync?

Make sure the cable is in firm and don't run boarderless window mode as the drivers seem screwed.

Did you enable or disable V-sync in Gta 5? I remember that gave me stutter.

Yeah i have also found some games prefer v-sync on and some v-sync off. I just turn on the fps counter and fiddle until i see the numbers moving around to show the frame are synced. I've not noticed any lag with v-sync enabled yet and the monitor doesn't seem to reach much over 155fps so haven't hit any sync lag limits. I wonder if they have built a frame limiter into the driver now to stop capping out at v-sync.

Hello everyone, I've just had my 9Q from scan UK delivered today. Seemed like everything was fine until I noticed this? Looks like dirt to me.

Personally I think it's something I will notice now that I have seen it once, will I be able to return with no hassle?

You don't realise how annoying it is topay 700 for a monitor only to have it have a bit of dirt underneath it. What's more annoying is that I don't seem to have any bleed or much BLG.

Also the build and design is stunning, pitty the main selling point of this monitor has major QC issues.
