[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 281

post #2801 of 9409
Hmm, but definitely it is not caused by monitor. Did you set g-sync correctly in control panel ? In any case, you are right DSR on 1080p (1.78x) with some MSAA look same than 1440p but with higher performance cost....

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Sure, but depends on resolution of your old monitor. If you want to use in mirror mode and if it's 1080p then 279 will run also on 1080p which does not look good. If both are 1440p then it's not a problem.

Just did a price to send it back via DPD and if you can drop it off to them, its only £5 next day service. I love DPD. Shame my local depot is like 45mins drive...

The scan website is down but managed to get on the scan support website to fill in a returns message.

1080p 120hz upscaled to 1440p 120hz in games looks hardly any different honestly. For £700 its not worth the upgrade at all.

How have you spotted that tiny bit of dust? Have you been checking it with magnifying glass? I am asking seriously as I was struggling to see it on your screenshot even id it was zoomed in coolsmiley.png

I agree, and G-sync is also not so big deal as well. I like the bigger windy desktop at 1440p, but I think it is not worth 850 euro. Maybe I will stick with my old IPS until something really big come out. But I'm still tempted to try 279Q :-P

No i'm not THAT fussy but I noticed it during normal use and once you notice it, you cannot live with it. Not when you just splashed out £700 on a new monitor.

Its hard to capture on a picture, especially with an iPhone camera!!

I can understand you are upset because I would not like to have that on mine, even for half of price you paid for PG279Q. All I mean is how did you spotted it, I could not see it on phone screen and had to turn PC on to see it, it is really tiny, but it shouldn't be there. I must check my MG279Q once again I think.

By the way, that was a question to SELBYFTW, my mistake, but both of you got the same problem.

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Yes of course you can. Just set it up as a second monitor.

I noticed it when I loaded up google and could see a small black mark on the screen. I went to rub it off, but it didn't move and was under the panel.

I then noticed another smaller patch when posting on here, again with a white background.

I tried running a Dead Pixel program for 1 hour but it made no difference so I think it is dirt / dust under the panel.
