I admit, that was me. Simply because it was my first "premium" expensive monitor and I tested it during daytime for dead pixels/dust. It has none of that so I was happy and hoped I got perfect monitor. Also I put pure black background (again, during daytime) and it was no glow, no bleed (I thought so). I was happy.

Then night and playing in dark room came and what dissapointment it was...man, the glow was just too much. I never though 850 euro monitor can have something like that. I tried to maybe stop noticing it but no way.

So yea, call it first glace happieness but then I hit a solid rock with my face and got back to reality.... biggrin.gif

When you look head on it's fine?

No. If you have like me or other- yellow glow at one/two corners they are there even if you look straight. That was deal breaker for us. If it was just at angles- I could live with it. But not when sitting straight in front of it. I buy it for gaming, not fitness biggrin.gif

When I turned PG279Q on and have checked all the games the only wow effect was the gsync which is a far better than dynamic v-sync in Radeon Pro (I wasn't comparing two monitors side by side because in my opinion it's really useless). In terms of colour quality/vibrance I expected to be shocked by IPS but I wasn't - only surprised by bleed/glow which is unbelievable in that price range

What is reshade/sweetfx and how to use it? What does it do? Never heard of it.

Thanks for reply everyone, my understanding i don't see any reason to get this monitor.

Just get Dell S2716DG and push vibrance more in NVCP

Not recommending Swift because i had it, and had pixel problems. Same as all who posted here.

My understanding Asus and Acer are worst companies to get 144hz monitors. And hoping that Dell QC will be better, need more reviews on that.

I'm also interested in XL2730Z but thats Freesync

ReShade is an awesome tool for modding how games look. SweetFX is a part of it: http://reshade.me

Here's for example a ReShade & ENB (another such tool but older) graphics mod for GTA V I'm working on: http://imgur.com/NwU2TOi
Sorry, for some reason the screenshot got garbled when I uploaded it from my phone. But it should show the color and lighting tweaks all right.

I so hope I get a good PG279Q like all of us here. Acer owns AUO basically so I wont be surprised if it's bad, but still.. I waited 9 months for the XB270HU and it was such a huge disappointment I got a Surface Pro 3 for the immediate IPS needs for work.

But any monitor that uses this Acer Unipac Optronics panel is more than sure to have some issues. There is if course good ones and I hope Asus has more of those and that they're going to have tighter QC over what gets through and what not!

EDIT: Worth a good look if you haven't yet read it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AU_Optronics

Hi guys, new to both OCN and Monitor forum. Amazon US opened the product page for PG279Q today for $799 with no product picture and "Out of Stock". Pulled the trigger pre-ordered.
I'm not a believer in this "US batch", this thing still is lottey , but with Amazon customer service and PB278Q on my desk, I have nothing to worry about.
Gonna upload some testing pictures when the monitor is on my hand, which probably will be in mid November.mad.gif

For us Americans, the S2716DG and the PG279Q are the same price. For many of us, I don't think it's worth the same price for a TN panel.

Thread Lurker finally made account. Have been waiting on this thing all year. I preordered on Amazon and I also have a PB278Q.

I have a MX279 for side monitor and recently noticed the colors seemed better than my PB278Q. I also realized how much IPS glow is on my PB278Q from reading this thread. The PB278Q I have is pretty bad with dark scenes, but I have gotten used to it so I don't think I'll mind the PG279Q much unless it is yellow. I do agree that the quality control issues with such an expensive monitor are inexcusable.


One last thing. My PB278Q had a dead pixel on top left part of screen that came alive after 2 years of use.( I think i had another towards the middle that went away with a pixel fixer thing that ran random colors on screen overnight.)

But the PB278Q isn't an IPS panel.
