[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 376

post #3751 of 9394
That Dell does look nice, but it doesn't seem particularly cheap to me... In my country Dell offers it for 1015 euro, I can order a PG279Q for 830. Now Dell does tend to inflate prices here, but even if I take the US price, convert it and add VAT, it can only match the price for the Asus, I don't see how people are saying it's so much cheaper.

There is no reason to prefer Dell. The only difference is design. It has the same panel from AUO so it will inherit all issues you can see with ROG. Saw image of a guy with dust trapped and something which looked like dead pixel in this Dell. So it will be the same story. I had zero problems with my Swift except some minor pixel inversion and screen uniformity which was a deal breaker for me.

Well that's the question I haven't yet seen a concrete answer to... DOES the Dell indeed have the identical panel as the Swift... i.e with the same aggressive AG coating and also the same pixel inversion issue it suffered with? If that is the case, there is indeed zero reason to prefer it over the Swift. If they have by some miracle been able to fix these problems however, it would be a serious contender.

Let's see what the TFT Central review says in a few days. I'm hoping the panel isn't the same. I really want a 1440p, 144hz G-Sync monitor. I don't care too much for IPS especially now I have experienced IPS glow and bleed.

I can't find reviews on the Dell anywhere!

It might not be exactly the same, but close enough. Maybe it's the one in the BenQ, either way it won't be much different since AUO is the only one making these kinds of panels.

Yeah. It's obviously a rubbish time to buy a monitor at the moment. So annoying! I have a 5930k, 980 SLI just begging for 1440p, 144hz and I've been stuck with my 1080p 120hz monitor for ages because of the problems with all the monitors that exist on the market.

Gone are the days paying good money meant getting good quality. A sure sign of the PC Master race taking a plunge...

That's sad, 980SLI would definitely deserve 1440p. But if I have to chose between a little bit (not extensive) glow and screen uniformity 278Q had, I would definitely take IPS. TN panels are just for pure gamers who don't care too much about image quality in desktop environment. But for someone who use PC also for work this is not a way to go. Maybe I will give a try BX270HU so I have just a comparison between this premium TN panel and IPS. I will write some report then. With a lot of luck I can get problem free one so I will keep it, otherwise I will return it within 14 days return period.

I would take uniformity problems over IPS glow. Thing is I have never even known about uniformity problems of TN panels until I heard about it in this thread. Hell, I was playing on TN monitors for last 10 years and never noticed it by myself.

However, glow- you can't not notice it. It is annoying and just irritating and it always interrupt me while gaming.

I am on 1080p IPS right now but I SO MUCH MORE PREFER it to PG279Q in terms of immersion couse I have no glow-bleed that it is just sick.

Yesterday I was playing MGSV- after 6 hours I noticed that I was playing 6 hours totally soaked into game. With PG279Q glow I couldn't play like that even for hour, seeing this terrible yellow glow.

If my next PG have same problems as previous I will try Dell TN. I wan 1440p and G-Sync and I can handle TN over IPS if that means no glow. Really. That is just me but I now what I want. Immersion.

I have a hard time believing you didn't notice the TN color shift. To me it's far worse than IPS glow and I'd have a hard time going back to TN. I think you just are used to it.

The PG279Q certainly has bad glow though. Worse than the XB270HU from my experience.
