Sorry about some crappy camerawork in some but it was a bit rushed and does get better.
The last few have the FPS running in the corner, but I rarely fell below 100.
Mine has no dead pixels and zero backlight bleed. If you move your heaad to the top right corner you can see a small amount of IPS glow in the bottom right, but I can't see it in any games.
Judge for yourselves.

After 4 days testing on the games I am now off to enjoy my new monitor. The last few videos are still uploading but not be long.
Hope it helps someone make a decision and good luck in the lottery.

Games tested: GTA V (walking and driving), Witcher 3, Borderlands Pre Sequel, CSGO, Alien Isolation and 7 Days to Die.

Are you running SLI 980 Tis? Just wondering how you're getting Witcher 3 at 144 FPS @ 1440P.

For anyone interested, Overclockers' 'no dead pixel' return policy apparently extends to dust, BLB and obtrusive glow. DPD are picking mine up tomorrow free of charge and I should be getting a replacement soon.

SCAN have now sold out so will definitely be asking for a refund

The Alien Isolation video flicks through all the options showing changes netween the 6 preset modes.

Asus ROG SWIFT PG279Q Alien Isolation @ 144hz IPS PRESET MODES




Asus ROG SWIFT PG279Q CSGO @ 144hz IPS G-SYNC


After 4 days testing on the games I am now off to enjoy my new monitor. The last few videos are still uploading but not be long.

There were some BLB locations in the top right corner, again only visible when complete black. I think if it didn't have that color gradient I would have sticked with the monitor.
I didn't see any dust, maybe in one location, but it was absolutely not visible. No dead pixels as well, I ordered it with a dead pixel test.

But another thing I noticed was pixel inversion (at least I guess it was that issue) while running Eizo Monitortest. There is a test image with a grey grid. The images builds up from the top and while the monitor does that the grey was really redish or greenish. I never noticed it anywhere else, only in this test image. Do you guys have this as well?

Dude, I guess during assembly of your monitor they've accidentally equipped it with TN panel :-D All symptoms your are describing are specific to TN Rog Swift smile.gif
