[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 346

But if you want to use it also for some work in desktop, browsing, writing, etc. be prepared for some uniformity issues which I found pretty distracting. The biggest problem are angles of course and even from ideal sitting position you can see yellow tint along sides of the monitor. It's because very narrow viewing angle. And the intensity is changing even with very small movements of your head. Typical for TN. On white, or if you have explorer window maximized yo can see left part of the screen yellowish then white and again right part yellowish. Besides, it has very ugly vertical gama shift so the top part is obviously darker then center and bottom. It looks like the page has some gradient set. Very distracting as well. And then there is this pixel inversion of course. Besides this, it's great almost no bleed and no glow. So if you can live with this, then you can take it. But for me it's no way other than IPS so seems I need to accept some level of glow.
i always buyed a tn panel then for me it s normal some color change for angles and washed colors,then for me pg278q is only on upgrade with same problem of my xl2411t ^^,i love ips colors and pg279q input lag but i m scared by this ips issues(i never own an ips and don t know if i can accept glow and bleeding)

Glow is only noticable in dark room, with absolutly NO LIGHTS in dark game envoirment. But like TOTAL dark.

Right now I am playing MGS V and some mission in night. Nights are not pitch black here, as start are shining etc and I can't notice glow on i at all.

MOST FPS games do not have pitch black envoirment and nights are usually bright so I don't think that will be problem.

I would take PG279Q and check it. You can always return it in two weeks after receivnig it and get refund.

And if that would hit, I would try with PG TN.

That is my opinion. Cheers mate,

Here is little gameplay from night of MGS with pitch black down right corner (where glow is). It is short and pure quality because it was from my phone camera but you can see for yourself.

And here is my PG general glow, corners glow/bleed and angle glow growth:

Hello guys! - bit of a dilemma here. I can get the PG278Q TN panel used for $450.00 (no dead pixels) or pick up the brand new PG279Q for $850.00 shipped. Which one do you suggest? Is the $400.00 IPS worth it considering better colors? Does it lag much behind the Rog Swift TN? Can anyone who have seen both chime in? thanks,

The IPS Swift is not worth $400 more.

Check the swift.
If that swift has no "pixel inversion/green flashing pixels" issue and no dead pixels and the gamma is close to 2.2, then you won the used panel lottery.
The PG279Q as the above poster said, is NOT worth $400 more if the used swift is in good shape.

However why is someone selling a used Swift? That panel is a good panel if it doesn't have defects, so there has to be a reason they are selling it.
People don't usually sell panels that won the panel lottery unless something MUCH better comes out (or they are doing something like exiting the PC market or something).

Hi - here are a few pics the seller provided me awhile back. I am not sure what to look for since I don't know much of about displays. Hope this can answer some issues of the panel? Thanks,

Looks like a winner. But gsync monitors need to be tested in use to make sure.
The gamma point on that monitor is unknown, although if it comes with a too low 1.4-1.8 gamma, that can be dealt with.
The pixel inversion problem is a bigger issue and that can't be detected in screenshots.

You can try this test, but only test it at 60hz. I found out that all panels get MUCH worse if you test it at 144hz.
If most of the tests pass with only minor inversion issues, then you have a winner.
Some of the panels were turning full green on the 2/4 tests if you scrolled down a little. Proper behavior is just minor flickering without everything turning full green. That might be unavoidable at 144hz (happens on a Benq too). But at 60hz, there should just be minor flicker or color variation.

The big issue is that this inversion issue should *NOT* be happening in games at all. The issue was people were seeing inversion artifacts, especially around red/green smoke or red/green glowing/halo effects in games, which caused rather severe scanlines type issues cutting through the image. That's the thing to look for after you get the monitor.

P.S> .On my Benq, at 60hz, the FPS presets make some of the grey lagom tests turn *Purple*. In standard mode, they're properly grey.
