[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 414

It reminds me what I had on TN panel, this gama gradient on the top. Looks a bit strange it you browse this forum and top comments are darker then rest. It's not so bad as with TN but obviously it is here! At least uniformity on sides is good. I was not used to this with IPS.

I did not find any dead pixels or dust though.

But, there is glow in 3 corners - yellowish one. Top left is perfect, the rest poor. I think it's yellow because of BLB. Here I took a screenshot from a video. Brightness on default settings (80).

So I think I will give chance also to Acer. I'm curious especially for this uniformity issue.




I think I will just wait for the XB271HU or the X34 until price comes down. Sticking with my current PG278Q until then.

Having read all 400+ pages of this and 100+ of other monitor threads, sounds like there are a number of people that are returning monitors after barely testing for defects (BLB/glow issues in particular). Also, this is a new technology, in general transitions in hardware are not smooth, that is one of the risks of being an early adopter. The fact that there is nothing else like this on the market probably indicates that it's either really new technology and/or really expensive to do and/or really hard to make well (which seems to be most likely, given the number of issues popping up).

It would be great if we had a separate post where people could share their test methodologies/settings so that users that aren't familiar with monitors can actually test and see if their monitors are defective or not, and list their production dates/issues with each monitor to see what batches are good and help Asus weed out defective products before they get shipped to merchants. Mass returns won't affect the hardware companies too much, they can write off those losses and still sell those products as refurbished. I'm just waiting for the Acer to get released and wait and see if I still want the Asus, or the Acer, or the Dell.This thread's gotten a bit out of hand that most casual readers or people interested in purchasing the monitor wont read much of.

I get 1400 mhz GPU clock speed and 7500 Memory clock on Asus GTX980 Strix stable.

I wholeheartedly agree with you mylilponey. People are returning it after using the monitor for not more than an hour. There are wide reports of Backlight Bleeding reducing and even completely disappearing after a few days on the XB270HU. Just go to the XB270HU Owners club and one will see plenty of before and after pictures. But the people here who've returned the monitor haven't even had it for two days.

I agree that we shouldn't accept faults on something that is priced so high, but listening to how hard some of these people are moaning gives off the impression that they are heavily biased and are walking in with the expectation of returning it. Just reading Benny89's story about how he returned 2 GPUs just because it didn't have a stable 50% overclock will tell you exactly how demanding they are.

I'm an Electrical & Computer Engineer, and for everybody bashing AUO, ffs there is a reason why they are the only ones making 144 hz IPS panels. This is something which has never been done before and the fact that they managed to do this is a milestone in itself. The technical details and manufacturing processes involved are undoubtedly incredibly expensive and complicated. No doubt a lot of research went into this, Before this, no IPS/PLS/VA panel could even do 76 hz without overclocks. And here comes a manufacturer who actually dared to offer the best of all worlds, and you guys are burning them at the steak even if you find the smallest amount of backlight bleed, something which occurs even in the high end LG IPS panel. There is a reason why LG and Samsung don't make 144 hz IPS panels. They literally can't! They're not willing to invest the R&D costs. And here is a company which is trying to offer everything that a gamer has asked for and this is what they're getting in return.

The XB270HU owners club was far better in comparison and wasn't loaded with impossible to please people. The people who returned it had legit cases of excessive BLB.

Does your 980Ti box say guaranteed 500Mhz overclock? rolleyes.gif You wouldn't even notice any difference between 1490 and 1520 Mhz unlike with a faulty monitor.
Just because the law allows you to doesn't mean you're not abusing the system.

Of topic again. Each 980 Ti can be overclocked. I wanted one that can pass 1500 Hz and I got one. I did not abuse system. I used rights I got to get what I want- that is all.

Besides my logic still stays regarding monitor. You read- IPS, 1440p, 165Hz, ergonomic stance, 27", superior angles etc. Do you see anywhere "Possible bleeding, dead pixles or dust?"- no? That means that there should not be there.

Did you read in GPU details "possible coild whine" or "not working fans" or "dead ports"? No? That means those should not be there. Easy logic really.

What you ctry ompare it to is if I wanted to get IPS without IPS glow or 165Hz being able to OC to 200Hz which I know is impossible. But I know is VERY possible to OC 980 Ti to 1500 and beyond (which was achieved MANY times by users on this forum). Especially G1s or Lightnings. In case of monitor- all I want is what they advertise, that is all.

And again- my GPU is off-topic.

Just wondering @Benny89, did either of your monitors have uniformity issues that have been reported by other users?

As I wrote to @misiak previously- I didn't notice it. But I know @misiak has much better eye to it and is more sensitive to it. I put pure white, pink, violet, green and red background on my screen and couldn't really see any uniformity problem... frown.gif

At first I though that top is darker but when I sat more straight and place monitor lower it faded and it was uniform at least for me.

But don't take my words for 100%. I am guy who came from 10 years of using TNs straight to new IPS screens and in this topic was first time ever I learnt about uniformity, color/gamma shifting and pixel invertions issues that TN should have and that I never ever noticed by my own eyes.

Now I have pure white ground put on PG and honestly it seems pretty uniform to me.

Unfortunately, the actual seller is not Newegg, but GizmosForLife. And they're selling it for $900, even though the MRP is $800.
