That is indeed another valuable alternative if G-SYNC is not that important and it could save a lot of money. I think the strobing will be similar to the FG2421 but we can't know for sure at this moment.

It's nice to see so many monitors releasing in Q4, a bit of patience gives a lot more options to choose from. Acer's XB271HU, Eizo's FS2735 and Dell's S2716DG have yet to be released although I don't expect any of them to really offer something that we can't get from ASUS already.

can other people who have the pg279q confirm that the glow is not yellowish?

and can confirm that the monitor don't change the bleed/glow after some hours of usage?

Confirmed, its white glow on my monitor. Also no it hasn't changed over the 4 days I have had it now.

There are few things that forced me to that decision. Let me explain:

1. Immersion: I am just immersion guy. Period. I am not competetive player, nor needing 144 Hz in single player games. I plsu SP games, RPG games and some MMO games, sometimes low demanding games like MOBS or other. I don't give a dam about 144Hz..
2. Glow and blacklight bleed drives me MAD. MAD. Like really MAD. I can't play games not to see this fking dam bleed and light at corners.
3. Angles. I have to sit at perfect dam position to minmize bleed/glow at corners etc. That is dam annoying. That is nowhere near comfortable playing. That sucks. I don't want that.
4. 1440p is great. I give it that. It is awesome to play with it. Also G-Sync. However- faulty chasis, bleeding, glow, angles! That is all JUST NOT FKING WORTH 850 euros.
5. This monitor is just not worth 850 euros. Hear me out- With its glow problems, bleed and other things- I would give it maximum of 500 euros. At this price I would be able to accept its faults.
6. I played at 60 FPS Thief, MGS, Watch Dogs and some others. Now I played on them on 80-120 FPS. And...yes. There is a differance. But not worth 850 euros. NOPE!

Right now I just play on it and every minute I feel like I overplayed for it by a HUGE margin. And I don't like it.

I have single OCed 980 Ti, 4790k CPU, nice case and some other things in my RIG. I don't feel like I overpayed for any of it. But with this monitor- I feel it on every step.

I think I am gonna buy for now some 144Hz TN/VA panel and just invest in second 980Ti to be able to play without G-Sync.

NOW- The only ONLY ONLY thing I will miss is G-Sync. Only that.


I will buy instantly VA, 1440p, 60Hz, G-Sync panel. Rest- not worth price for me.

That's a shame mate. I do love everything about this monitor except from the glow / bleed. Its really starting to annoy me and then makes you question its price tag. I know how you feel.

The problem is I really don't want to go back to my BENQ 2420T now, knowing what I could have. 144hz is a must for me and 1440p too if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a monitor again. This is my first IPS panel and yes colours and image looks excellent but its faded by the glow.

I'm going to play some games today to see how distracting it is and try and make a decision on keeping it or not.

Here's two new images taken from my S4.

On top we have an image taken with auto night detection turned on and below we have an image taken with auto night detection turned off.





Notice how the second picture looks a lot better than the first. IPS glow is still evident on the bottom left and glow is still noticeable on the top right and bottom right but is nowhere near as bad. Taking photos with a phone camera isn't as bad as people say it is, just make sure you turn auto night detection off to get a much more accurate representation of the glow and bleeding on your monitor. Just to confirm as well, both of these pictures were taken in the same environment less than a minute a part so there is no bias for either picture. You can notice the auto night detection doing it's job as the wall behind the first picture looks red when in reality it's white.

Yeah camera settings make a big difference.

Do any of you find the top right is the worst for the glow? On mine, I can notice it glowing over the image even on a boardered window on the desktop or with a darker wallpaper.

As you can see on my picture the glow is most visible on the bottom left for me with bleeding on the bottom and top right. As I've mentioned previously I thought the bleeding was worse on the top left compared to the bottom left but my older pictures suggested otherwise. This recent picture proves I was right and my bleeding really doesn't look as bad as I and some others thought.

So its livable for you?

Do you only notice it on dark games or is it always there?

Testing GPU Power Draw at Increased Refresh Rates using the ASUS PG279Q

This isn't anything new or specific to this monitor but it's good to be aware of it. If more than 120Hz is being used during desktop work, GPUs typically won't stick to idle clocks because of the extra load. For gaming that doesn't really matter because the GPU will be at max load anyway if you're not using an FPS cap.
