But problem is as always, Asus sent them pixel perfect unit so the only negative thing about that monitor will be it's price. :/

I'm calm, I just reacted on that video because you did not explain earlier smile.gif You know, in that video it looks like you run the game 165FPS according Fraps. Some glitch most probably but for people not aware of problematic they could think you run this 165FPS smile.gif Other thing was that you said you were running that game 165Hz. This is also not true until you haven't used fixed refresh rate instead of g-sync. But it does matter anyway, better if people speak about issues or better if they speak only positive stuff.

Take my apology if I caused any confusion. I'll clarify.
2 Videos. For the first I went into the monitor settings. Overclocked it to 165hz. Restarted the monitor. Went into Nvida settings. G-Sync ON. Refresh rate set at 165hz.
Started Witcher 3. I think you'd agree that the 45-65 fps in the top corner seemed correct.

We can asume G-sync is in control.


After a suggestion to try again with G-SYNC OFF I made another.
On the second video I again OC'ed to 165hz. Restarted the monitor. Went into nvidia settings. Turned G-Sync OFF. Went to Nvidia refresh rate. Set it at 165hz.
Restarted Witcher 3 and what you see on the screen is exactly what I got.

https://youtu.be/PhZlFzJ3MXY
We can only asume the figure is fixed.

Confused I did another with COD on EXACTLY the same settings as the first video (OC 165hz, G-Sync ON, refresh rate 165hz)
This time the figure fluctuated between 140-165.

https://youtu.be/C3A57FAt3VA

Just done another with COD on EXACTLY the same settings as the second video (OC 165hz, G-Sync OFF refresh rate 165hz)
This figure again remained fixed at 165

No claims... just interesting results using the monitors refresh rate.
Personally I think the monitors refresh rate counter does not work when you switch G-Sync OFF

But on the other video it shows 55 which is real https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHp6qvQZI5Q

So he said he is running witcher at 165Hz (165FPS) which is not possible... That's all I wanted to say...
Yea it's a bug, the framerate It got stuck at 165FPS.
However it is best to use the more accurate Afterburner / Precision for readings smile.gif

I know this, it's been brought up time and again on this thread. My point is that they'll post their recommended monitor settings which is what I want to see.

Glad to hear several users have got perfect monitors. I wasn't one of them though, I'll have to pick another one later on. I don't really notice any dead pixels in day to day use, so let's see if I bother or not.

Is it close to the old swift? Or less agressive? Thank's

I also have both and the coating is less agressive, slightly more glossy. If you like better colours and could use the HDMI input, try it out, otherwise it is not worth the change.

BTW, i also got no dead pixels or dust, also some more IPS glow bottom right depending on the viewing angles. Will stay with the 279Q, my 278Q has to to back to Asus because of some dead pixels that appeared after transport to a LAN party ;-)

Nobody of us got PERFECT monitor. We only got monitor without dead pixels or dust, but all new PG users suffer from glow/bleed, especially at right corners. I am sure even TFT unit will be same, unless they manufactured it seperately just for review.

After playing at 35 brightness at good angle and 40 gamma in Thief in very dark scenarios I can say that well, glow in corners (or bleed I don't know) is noticable, especially down right corner, however that is also due to me always staring at this point. If I soak into game itself, and let myself just focus on centre of screen as I should I do not notice glow.

But yea, if some of you find corners glow/bleed iritating in dark games- do not buy it. You won't get one without it. Less, bigger- but always there frown.gif.

Gonna play week with it in dark games and see if I can make it work.

During day the glow is pretty much invisible.

Yes glow/bleed exists, but I guess it can't be fully avoided with these screens. Maybe you could say it's more of a feature than an actual fault.

If there is a way to open this baby up without voiding the warranty, I'm willing to try and see if the problem is fixable. More than likely, we'd just have to loosen a few screws just a tiny bit. But the monitor isn't out in US yet.

Has a review site done a tear down and opened this baby up? Someone had to, see that they looked at the display itself.

I don't think there is a way to do that without voiding it. I'm not sure if TFT Central disassemble them either.
