[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 336

So it is a cooling issue?
Really? Then it's definitely a thing Acer could do better.

I have no idea what causes it, but it sounds pretty logical if it's a cooling issue. What bothers me is that they stated it even in the review, so it's not just you. Proper calibration will help a little but not much.

"The PG279Q screen's uniformity is fairly consistent until we hit the bottom-right corner. Improved a little by calibration, a block of colour does feel very slightly off when looking at it with our own eyes."

@misiak since you asked- i sold my 270 cause i wasnt very happy with glossy housing of the acer, plus things turned out that i really need a 2nd input. I was otherwise happy with 270s image. I bought one from the very 1st batch and kept the 1st one. It had some blb in bottom right corner but it was acceptable still, on the positive side it had no poxel errors and very minimal glow.

But in the last months ive seen more ppl get bad panels on the acer with extensive glow and all the other issues..

My assumption is this- I think auo changed their manufacturing process to save some additinal costs and uses different parts in the panel than it did in the very first batch of this panel. Ive seen some other guy on a forum who sold his 270 that also had no major issues, he bought his acer at the same store like a week before me. So heres that theory and i think its very realistic too. My acer also had a better coating than the 279, it didnt create greasy spots when you touched it and didnt reflect ovjects in the room in an extremely weird eay as my 279 did.

I sold my 270 for 610 eur.. After all that panel lottery with the 279 id gladly pay 650 to get my old acer back.

A guy claiming his 279 has worst glow out of all users... Watch my YT vids how bad mine was wink.gif search for 279+glow

Now im waiting for 271 though and will decide then. If not the panel issues and the ugly glossy housing, id say acer had a pretty good 1st ips gsync monitor.

Im now moreconfident that 271 will be better than asus. The stand looks worse but monitor housing looks better imo. Since i have ergotron stand idc about the 271s lego stand.

Do you think the PG279Q has the same coating as the MG279Q? I've read that touching the coating of the MG279Q causes greasy spots too.

TFTCentral said the coating is the same as the MG279Q and XB270HU.

Ye its very likely that pg279 has same coating as mg279, thats what tft-c claims as well. However, they claim that the acer 270 has same coating as the other 2.

Now- i cant speak about 270s manufactured in the last months, but my 270 which i bought in march 15 had day and night better coating than my pg279q.

My Acer reflected objects in my room perfectly precisely without any distortion. Whereas the pg279q has some weird distortion on the objects it reflects and it seems like it "swallows" the light, which the acer didnt do.

I've had so much bad luck with these monitors. First one I ordered from SCAN UK. Arrived with dust under the screen, sent it back for a replacement and by the time it got there they had sold out and said that I would have to wait until the 6th of november to get a replacement. I then cancelled the replacement and got a refund and ordered another one from OCUK. This arrived very promptly the next day and had a piece of dust and a dead pixel, I sent it back yesterday for an rma and spoke to someone at OCUK today and they have told me that they are also out of stock and eta is unknown/two weeks time.

So now I'm down £750 and without a monitor for two weeks.

GG/WP.

So the Asus coating is stronger than Acer? I'm not sure how I should imagine what you're describing.
post #3359 of 9388
@waro- look at how my acer reflected the camera light- it looks crystal clear, almost like a mirror image img_2015cvshd.jpg

The 270 would have "swallowed" the light more, the reflected camera flash would be way smaller and look slightly distorted, not as crystal clear as the acers.

I would say asus coating is slightly more aggressive, but also reflects a little less than the Acer, HOWEVER- at no point did i feel like acer reflects too much or have noticed any reflections.

I think tft-c just assumes that the acer has same coating as pg/mg279, but i can tell u for sure, my acer had a better coating. Heck tft-c goes by memory, when did they test the acer? Back in march-april, and sent it back afterwards? Well, i had my acer just a few weeks ago still and can judge better...

Ok. But the difference isn't that strong, that the Asus seems unsharp?
