ASUS NEW SLOGAN... "IF YOUR NEW ROG GEAR IS DEFECTIVE KEEP IT CAUSE THE EXCHANGE MAY BE WORSE"
FINE PRINT.... Besides our customer service is horrendous

Just read this in their press release for new IPS monitors
About Asus
ASUS has more than 16,000 employees around the globe with a world-class R&D team of 5,200 engineers. Company revenue for 2014 was approximately US$14.5 billion.

world-class R&D team? 5200 engineers and not one of them bothered to mention to the buying department they invested in the crappiest panel on the market???

Had a conversation with Asus customer support today. I assure you that I couldn't have been more satisfied with their service.

I would also like to add that I've gotten a super good monitor, and the only issue I have has to do with the G-Sync function. Most of the ones complaining don't even own said monitor. Also, most of the ratchet whiners ignore the fact that many of us have said time and time again that we're very HAPPY with the PG279Q.

Not to mention that it's not Asus' fault the panels are a hit and miss.

Well thats good but I gotta ask are you happy with what they said or what they did? Meaning anyone can blow smoke and make promises they wont keep or did they actually do something for you?

Also g sync is a function of the monitor, issues are issues & an $800+ monitor shouldnt have any. Sure a "little" backlight bleed at most I think every panel has some but all these other issues are unacceptable.
Im just very worried about getting a 279q or seven. I dont want the headache but I also dont want to be stuck with a 24" 1080p panel (even though it has been flawless).

As Ive said I have had issues with two consecutive generation ROG motherboards and a ROG front base I just think its a little ballsy of them to be bragging about their "world class R&D team of 5200 engineers
with so many issues. Good to know some people are happy though with their panel, makes me fear my purchase a little less.

the most important is that you are happy with your monitor smile.gif
What did you expect from a 30 fps Youtube video? wink.gif

Overclockers are offering a pixel garentee with the monitor, a single dead one and they will swap it out so when scan issue my refund if I get another it will be from OCUK

Sorry, but that is poor form from you.

Scan is offering you a refund on your monitor and you're buying a replacement from elsewhere.rolleyes.gif

None of my business but these days when virtually noone offers good customer service and virtually everyone (well lets just say Acer & Asus or the panel maker) for the sake of this conversation
is selling subpar products with ridiculous defects and/or QC HECK yes spend your hard earned money with the vendor with the best policies and more important the best customer service!

We gotta look out for ourselves, if we feel we need a high end monitor for our expensive builds (which we do) I know im taking less risk if I can.
The company makin the product doesnt seem to care, yeah the one that netted 14.5 billion & braggin about it, so why not buy from a dealer that seems to.
But then again Im not rich, others may be & may not care about $800 but I can asure you thats what Asus is countin on wink.gif

I don't have a problem with AG coating on my 278 but maybe it is because it is better than on my previous LG IPS screen and don't know how better coating should look like smile.gif And maybe they've already improved coating on newer models... who knows....

What problems do you have with G-sync ? I'm pretty sure it is not fault of a monitor. Could be related to anything.

You can always play lottery with them, just make sure you buy the monitor from a local store near to you so you can go and replace it every day if necessary smile.gif With monitors I'm willing to pay 50 - 100 eur more if I know I can replace it without hassle if needed. Can't imagine I would need to pack the monitor and sent by a post - it's too big.

Also, it's a fact users usually only complaint if they have problem with something. If it is good they usually don't say about it on forums. Only enthusiasts or really excited users do that... I also was afraid to buy 278 because sooo many bad reviews but I don't have a single issue. Yes there is some pixel inversion noticeable in specific tests but I've never noticed in "real world". BLB is very minimal. No dead pixels or dirt (this things are not acceptable for me on 700+ monitor) The only problem I have - it's TN. Therefore I want to switch to IPS and this time maybe I will not have so much luck but I can always replace if defective. So there is not too much risk.

Can I buy this anywhere yet?
post #2980 of 9443
In my town lol? Ultimate elec. closed (used to work there), American tv closed, Compusa closed, Circuit City closed. We have a couple crappy little pc stores but they only sell cheap little parts nothing worthwhile.
Only place left I can think of is best buy, got a ton of those but I seriously doubt any of em will carry it not sure I would buy it there if they did.
Microcenter never had one here closest one prolly 500 miles.
