[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 283

post #2821 of 9443
I asked before but didnt get any answers and I have difficulty picking one thinking.gif

What would you pick if you had the hardware to run both displays at the rated Hz:

Acer XB271HK: IPS 3840 x 2160, 75Hz
Asus PG279Q: IPS 2560 x 1440, 165Hz

Both G-sync. Mostly gaming usage

I would pick 1440p as I consider it sweet resolution spot. 4K is still exotic, need super GPU power that you have to maintain.

Of course that is personal preferance.

Also 1440p if you can get good one without issues tongue.gif

i'd pick the PG279Q because im already used to the 144hz+ . going back to 75hz is a PITA. right now, i'd pick 1440p over 4K anyways because 4K scaling on other software is just not that great yet, like windows is scaling fine but some popup windows are damn pixelated etc. 1440p is working perfect and 144hz and more is just pure awesomeness.

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

No its actually not... at least with the iphone 6 camera it isnt...

Find the word "Antworten" and look straight above the letter "t" in that word. That is dust uder the coating.

Thanks for the replies, I appriciate it. I have personally never used a 144Hz display before so I have very little context on what visual improvements I would have over a 60Hz/75Hz display.
My understanding though is that because the Acer 4K display got G-Sync it makes up a little for the lacking Hz vs the Asus making it smooth too?

Secondly, isnt the ppi extremely little with a 1440p across 27" display? I have used a lot of 17" 1080p notebooks and I think those have actually higher ppi than the PG279Q making me wonder if its just as crisp as the notebook displays?
Or doesnt the ppi count?

Thinking of buying PG278Q now, but...they are not faults free as well, dust and dead pixels reported as well, and no IPS.....oh dear....Wait for Acer XB1? It is going to be the same screen anyway, isn't it?

Just wait for 271 and new Dell Gsync. Then decide. Dell should out by early november, 271 late november/early Dec.

I got 144hz monitor now and love it, once you had it you dont want to go back to 60Hz, same as w ith IPS vs TN etc. 144Hz looks so good comparing to 60Hz, even if you can keep refreshing rate at 100Hz it still makes a big difference.

Prefer ASUS design to Acer, but it is all about quality now, but I have read reports that Acer has same issues as Asus

So nowhere will insure a PC monitor in transit so i think i might tell SCAN about the problem with this monitor and see if they will get it collected for me instead.

I'm guessing they are going to be super busy tomorrow though as their website has gone done today so no-one can place orders online.
