[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 359

post #3581 of 9400
Well folks,
This is EXACTLY why I'm sticking with my PIXEL PERFECT XL2720Z monitor.
No backlight bleed at all.
No strange inversion artifacts (at least not what other monitors don't already have just from the LCD tech)
No smudges
No ants in the screen.


Sure...I don't have gsync or freesync.
But I have full range motion blur reduction like a CRT at all refresh rates (Excluding 50hz).
What's wrong with sitting on something that works?

If you guys sat on something that worked, and didn't buy into the defective crap and just held onto your higher quality monitors, guess what? You would get higher quality new stuff since no one would be buying the defective stuff or the manufactures would be losing money from all the returns.

Sure we wont have our dream tech for awhile (which is OLED with 50,000 hours blue channel lifetime, freesync+gsync+strobed /scanning backlight (similar to Oculus rift) with ZERO Crosstalk (perfect like a CRT), but until then stick with what works.

The problem is a lot of you are extremely rich or well to do and you have more money than common sense. So you just throw money at hardware and complain about it while continuing to buy it. I guess that's the perks of having a lot of money to spend....

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...

Seems you had the same experience with 278Q as me. I paid 750 as well and I was disappointed. TN technology is already outdated. But I've expected this a bit but wanted to try 1440p and 144Hz. I might have tried XB270 instead... Btw, could you compare both monitors ? Is 279 much better if we exclude all those pixel/bleed issues ?

Sorry, but what is this VA G-sync 1080p ??? I'm afraid there is no such monitor like this on the market... Or am I missing something ? Or do you mean z35 ?

Yeah, I meant z35. We just don't have choice. If we want best of all worlds we are right now pretty much forced to buy new PG or XB. And that sucks QC would be better if AUO had competitors, but no one else is making that kind of panels.

Sucks hard.....

The reason of my replacement can be seen in this video: bottom right corner

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIEgFMigNWc&feature=youtu.be

Video taken at night, dark room in Witcher 3 total dark dungeon. Brightness: 24, Gamma: 40

Belive me if it was half as big- I would keep it. But that covers WAY to much of screen while sitting DIRECT in front of centre of the screen at level of my eyes.

As you can see all other 3 corner when looking at whole monitor from centre are perfect and there is no glow- only at angles.

OK so I actually think my problem is IPS Glow and not bleed! sitting further away from the monitor and using during the day both help to mask the glow from the top right corner. In fact it was so much better today it's made me want to keep it again.

As night drew in, the glow was more apparent. It varies with distance, lighting in room and monitor angle.

I've asked for an RMA but I'm still not decided

You right but 21:9 is not for me - also I would say resolution is to small for 32". Why the heck they won't make 16:9 ??? 24" ? Or better 1440p 27" VA? There is really lack of comprtition. AUO has a monopol here. Sad.

You are pretty unlucky for that crazy bottom corner glow, otherwise monitor looks siperb. Btw seems this guy has simillar issues:

I get where you're coming from and I totally agree with you. It's just that most of us really just want something better (higher resolution, gsync, etc.) and manufacturers just won't offer the very best with great quality for a long time, if ever. So we're left just settling for what we can get our hands on. Prior to my XB270HU I had an Asus VG248QE with zero problems but at the end of the day it was just a 24 inch 1080p TN screen with no gsync and really just left a lot to be desired for my gaming experience. I am one of the lucky few who managed to snag an acceptable Acer on the very first try and after hearing all the horror stories I definitely will not be buying another so called "Premium" gaming monitor for many years from any brand.

Yes, glow changes with distance. The closer you are the worse glow you may see. Can you make some video as benny did?

Yep, first world problems. Although I've actually learned my lesson; the XB270HU was my first high end gaming monitor purchase, and I'm going to be way more cautious from now on.
