Some swifts came with incorrect gamma out of the box, being shipped between 1.4-1.8 gamma when they should have had 2.1-2.2 gamma. Those swifts you linked that were washed out were the incorrect gamma units as I just wrote above.

I don't know why callsignvega gets bashed so much. He's been as helpful as chief blur buster in enhancing our monitor experience for years.

What the eff are you posting about?

There are other pictures in his build log where he corrects both monitors to equal brightness and sets both monitors to 2560x1440 resolution. Vega has gone through more monitors than most people and I highly trust his opinion especially when it comes to displays so when he says color performance on the Swift is that good I'll believe him. Of course the TN panel will still suffer from viewing angle problems and there's the dreaded grainy matte coating that ruins the overall image quality but I really don't think anyone can bash on the Swift's colors alone.

Strawman.argument.
Your argument has nothing to do with the 1.8 gamma badly factory calibrated swifts.

Exactly, which is why I didn't mention it. Both of you clearly missed the point of my original post.

Do you know where callsignvega got that test image from? I want to use it.

The ROG Swift (TN) and X34 (IPS) and PG279Q (IPS) absolutely do not have identical colours. Anyone saying otherwise is colour blind. Colour shift alone makes a huge difference. IPS will always beat TN hands down for colour reproduction, no question. The issue with the X34 and PG279Q is IPS glow and also bleed. The panels used in both these monitors are known to suffer with it, some badly. Bit of a lottery really, as some seem fine.

To answer for my earlier post.

Thats the image comparision I have and had with the same brightess.
Im not eve close at being any good with colors comparision but putting 2 dells between an TN Swift, you could not not notice the difference. Using same brightess on all 3 monitors even tried to match colors from different presets from tft central didnt make it any better.

Thats how I felt and what I saw but colors are also personal.
Also I could be completely wrong, but right out of the box all I could say was nope this aint anything close. My roomie who games himself said the same.

You wanted my experience, thats all I have :/

The new Acer XB271UH has probably the same panel as the Asus PG279Q.

Being listen in sweden already with mostly the same specs.
