Does the Dell have a different AG coating to the Asus PG278Q then?

Well he referred to it as semi-gloss, so definitely yea. You don't see ANY reflections on the PG278Q. They say it's medium anti-glare, but if this is medium I don't want to see heavy. Hopefully the person at ASUS who made this medium AG decision has been fired and or waterboarded.

It's a keeper. Very happy with it and perfect in terms of QC

Sucks they dont sell it anywhere in Sweden.

It's not Asus who makes the decision on antiglare coating. Its already on the panel when they receive it.

Well it has a slight 'sheen' to it so i personally would call it a semi - gloss or satin finish.

Either way looks good. Yes IPS still better in terms of being ever so slightly sharper and better colours / viewing angles and uniformity but the Dell is a very good alternative for those who hate IPS glow / BLB on the Acer / Asus

Actually I just read on TFT central that it is the same coating as all other TN screens...

That makes more sense as its probably the same panel as all the other recent TN screens.

Annoying how the IPS screens cannot have black uniformity like these TN and most VA screens have.

Great work mate! I am giving Asus one last shot and if not Dell is coming to my desk too. Good review! thumb.gif

Did you check properly at the black background ? You have to look from 5cm to see them. At first sight I also did not noticed them, only after tough examination and I was shocked how many there are. They are all green on black...

Could you do me a favor, if you're not blind you will definitely see that problem with uniformity. It's pretty hard to capture but I will make a video and demonstrate how you can find out. Pls do that for me as I'm very interested. Because if you don't have it I will definitely give him another chance. Later this year on beginning on 2016 until all flaws are resolved.

Indeed, and let's not forget the price of the Dell which is VERY attractive given it would appear 100% free of the faults that are on all the IPS monitors at the moment. The only compromise is a slight hit on the colour vibrance and worse viewing angles. All in, it seems pretty much the perfect gaming monitor at this moment in time.

Nice video, looks very promising. One thing that would have been a nice addition though is a look at the viewing angles. It didn't really look like it had very bad colour shifting, but slowly moving around the monitor showing the different angles could have cleared that up a lot more.
Well now I'm not sure what to do, it does look nice and even if I could get a perfect pg, 200-250 euro is a big price difference if the Dell is "good enough". Still saving the money though, so I have some time to contemplate what I'll go for biggrin.gif

Sure, mate I will try. I can tell 100% sure I have not even one dead/stuck pixel. Tested on white, black, green, red, pink and violet backgrounds.
