[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 357

How are your experiences with pixel inversion with the PG278Q? To have no pixel inversion with the PG279Q is an important point for me.

Question is now, do you just pack it down in to the original box and thats all? or do you have to pack box in box ... cause that mother is huge already.

Dude told me to bubble wrap it, im like I got all the original things left, if I pack it down theres no more space!?
I will have to take a look at it.

Did you buy it from Sweden? What website?

OMG, that's crazy. They should compensate you for that. 850 for this ???? No way... It's like you buy a new car and they've already sent you wracked. Shame on those who made a QC of this one and let it passed to customers...

@Darylrese, seems you have pretty good one. But take a screen from your ideal sitting position at night with completely black background. You can use PassMark monitor test app for it.

To reassure myself (besides this post), the $350 can go towards something else or be saved for another monitor 3 yers from now.

Hmm, if you can live with pixel inversion and not great image quality then it will be fine. But I would not take TN panel anymore. If you only play games, then you will be fine. But in the desktop you won't be satisfied in my opinion. But maybe you are not so immersive like me. Let us know how you like it...

Pixel inversion is fixed, however there are other issues...

I would say all PG279Q should look like this one MG279Q (except those 2 dead pixel). Almost invisible glow and no BLB so you get the point. YES, such monitors exist so why you should accept some with defects ?

Just another reassurance post, I'll stop after this because I don't want to be that guy.

I wouldn't mind getting the PG279Q, but I don't want to deal with the QC issues, specially with a list of life challenges coming up. I'm coming from a 7 year old monitor, so as long as I don't see the PG279Q in person, I'm very satisfied with the PG278Q which looks amazing to me, this is my first 1440P monitor. Saving $350 and paying nearly half the cost of the PG279Q was worth the sacrifice. The money can either go towards pascal, SLI or when ASUS and Acer get their QC problems resolved or Dell comes out with a IPS G-Sync.

I don't want to deter anyone from getting the PG279Q, a part of me still wants it. But it was coincidental that someone was selling the PG278Q next to where I live with hardly any issues from what I can see and some curve balls life threw at me a few days ago.

I really do envy those that get a 279 with near perfect quality and get their moneys worth. And I feel absolute anger towards ASUS for making some of the people here have to play a lottery and RMA or pay restocking fees to get a good one.

On a side note, I realized that having the desktop at 144 hz pushes mine (and many others) GPU idle tempersatures pretty high.

If one can deal with 60 hz desktop, I recommend running the desktop at 60 hz and games at 144 hz. All this can be handled through NVIDIA control panel.

I'm noticing idle temperature differences of 6C to 10C. I'm using a Kraken G10 + H55, and I wan my PWM fans to be off at idle with temperatures at 30C to 32C to reduce dirt in my radiator and extend the life of my fans.

I would say thats a nice buy! Maybe I should try to hope for more glow.. and go for free sync while being a nvidia guy tongue.gif

Just use 120Hz in desktop and the card will downclock to idle wink.gif And in desktop the difference between 120Hz and 144Hz is negligible. In any case if you never had IPS panel I think you will be pretty satisfied. To me the image quality itself is very close to my IPS panel after a good calibration and the only problem is with uniformity (bad angles, gama shift, sides brighter will yellow tint) - but in games you hardly notice it smile.gif If I would want monitor only for games I would definitely take PG278Q. But because I also work at my PC the TN panel is no go for me...

More glow on my PG279Q - Get a refund and then buy the MG279Q.
Since I use nvidia I wont be able to use free synd but I get the 144hz and a great IPS panel biggrin.gif

I'll try 120 hz, I don't know why it doesn't downclock well at 144 hz... Is that a NVIDIA thing?

Yeah, I'm basically using it for gaming, I have a work mintor that's IPS.

It's because pixel clock is too high at 144Hz and 2D clocks are not reliable.

Ah, good joke smile.gif But the point is MG279Q has the same panel as PG279Q :-D So I'm pretty sure you can have good PG279Q with a bit of luck or much better QC from Asus side. It's not impossible...
