[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 358

post #3571 of 9400



Amazon.de had a deal for Acer 270 for 650 eur...They have 41 used 270s in the Amazon Warehouse deals, wich means 41 returns at least LOL. Thats just pathetic, theres no other way to describe it.

So apparently it doesnt look like the panel got fixed looking at all those returns..

Nice detective work there. I remember last black friday they had 15% off warehouse items, the ACER and ASUS were on there, but I realized "screw that, they're all returns."

ye when it comes to monitors its bets to stay as far away as possible from monitors, unless you dont mind one with dead pixels etc. when you can save like 100+ dollars.

Wrong.

The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q features an AU Optronics M270Q008 V0 AHVA (IPS-type) panel which is capable of producing 16.7 million colours with a true 8-bit colour depth. This is a new panel that we've not seen in any screen before. Early reports and some other reviews have wrongly stated that the screen is using the same M270DAN02.3 panel as the similarly spec'd Acer XB270HU and Asus MG279Q. That isn't right though, and isn't really logical given that this is a new borderless / frameless style panel as well. We expect to see this new panel used in the forthcoming Acer XB271HU when that's released too.

It is only slightly modified version of older panel. But maybe that's the reason why the quality is so bad. Hope this will improve. In any case I'm very curious on new XB271HU. 99% it will be the same .... as PG279Q.

My question is, despite being modified or new/old is it really that hard to produce a good monitor ?
They demand 750-900 euro for a screen and it seems as QC is bad, panels are bad, pixel control and dust is also an issue.

I now understand why people tried to tell others to not buy the Acer, or the first Swift. I tested the PG278Q and I had to turn it back after a day... That gamma and that yellowish tone across the whole screen just was not worth 750 euro.
Now they demand 900 for BLB glow and Bad Pixels tongue.gif

Starting to see a trend in game development, gaming gear and monitors. Produce fast and sell to make numbers but don't give a damn about customer satisfaction...

That's the truth. And like you imply, we are getting milked hardcore for computer monitors. That's why they don't use any really good SPVA panels in any computer monitors. I'd go bananas for a monitor using said panel with full array backlighting, good build quality, high refresh rate, and G-SYNC, but as long as people are willing to pay $700-800 for crap (like me, lol) it won't happen. On that note, at least I don't pay money for crap games or other hardware, and this is the last time I'll ever spend so much money for an IPS or TN panel, let alone one with so many QC issues.

True, mate. But how can we resist while there is just NO CHOICE for us. It is either this 144Hz, G-Sync IPS 1440p or....yea.... 120 Hz VA but not G-Sync and 1440p....144Hz G-Sync but TN....or VA G-Sync but 1080p....

So what can we do....

We can only play lottery. I will be playing mine until I get close to perfect PG. I don't care how many times my local store will have to return and replace me monitors. They can write complainments to ASUS for their shirt quality that make clients return defect units.

I have bought in my life quite lot of TVs on the other hand and I never had any issues like that. Every screen was perfect. Why can't gaming monitors be like that?

Because lts face it- Asus and Acer have monopoly right now for that kind of monitor so they demand price waaaay over the top.

I bet that in reality developing of this new monitors (PG and XB) cost less than 300 euros, maybe 350. And we are paying 850 for it.

Guess we are lemmings after all biggrin.gif But what we can do. Grow grey beards waiting for OLEDs?

Yeah we're lacking truly great options. I was considering getting a very nice 40-something inch 4k TV for PC gaming and mounting it farther back to compensate for the size increase, but I'll hold off for now and save that as a last resort.
