[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 441

post #4401 of 9392
I'm going to wait it out with my Amazon order. In my previous experience, Amazon has been infinitely easier to work with when it comes to returns.

Edit: Just got done talking with an Amazon rep, I was told that they're expecting their first shipment in a couple of days. It was apparently back-ordered for a few days. The rep waived my one-day shipping charge because of the delay smile.gif

darn, i should have done that.

Didnt want to chance spending money on shipping when it might be defective and the money will be wasted.

If it's defective, Amazon will pay for return shipping.

Went to bed minutes before Newegg must have listed this! Oh well, I'm going to get it from whomever I can first (Newegg, Amazon or BBY). I'd prefer Newegg for free 2-day shipping, no tax, and free returns with Premier (note anyone with a .edu address can sign up for Premier for 1 year free right now).

Is that UK or US? Still nothing on the UK amazon page for pre order etc.

But my biggest disappointment is the bad uniformity of the panel. I've never see that.

+/- 600K° between top and bottom mad.gif

It's not visible in game but easily visible on white surface.

Previous post on this topic show the same symptom so I think my PG279Q is not faulty and perhaps it is the limitation of 1440p 165hz IPS panel ?!?

Strange that TFTCentral (and other) dont talk about it. Notice that LUMINANCE uniformity is better than PG278Q (and amazing constrast 1100:1, coating, etc...).


Can somebody take mesurement of uniformity ? Thank thumb.gif

Oh my god. This is exactly what I've had as well!!!! Extremely annoying thing. AUO should really make something with this panel because it sucks so much. I could live with stuck pixel, I could live with some minor bleed/glow but I couldn't live with this! Because I would buy TN instead if I would want such crap uniformity.... I returned 278Q just because of this. Ant it had better gama shift like this. Only sides were worse. I would recommend all people to wait couple of months until AUO put their crap together because this is not acceptable for a price tag this "premium" product has. The only advantage over VA is speed. I think I'd better stay fixed at 75Hz like this. Return, return and return... This is only think which can make wake them up....

And exactly, I wonder how Asus paid those reviewers, single review did not mention yellow tint. If it's only gama shift OK, but yellow tint ??? Sorry... But also that luminance variance up to 30% is ridiculous.

Exactly the crap I had on my PG279Q, I could see it clearly when surfing, not just with white background or browsing windows explorer etc. The top of the screen had a visible yellowish tint, the bottom corners had blueish tint. It was very annoying. Which is why I dont see much hope even in 271 Acer when it comes out, because it will use the same dog **** as the panel.

To be honest though, my Acer 270 didnt have it, which I bought as soon as it came out. I assume they changed something in the manufacturing process to lower the manuf. cost and thats why the panels in the last few months have so many issues... I might be wrong though, but it really seems like it.

For those purchasing from Newegg, just in case you weren't aware, this monitor does NOT qualify for Premier benefits. This was just confirmed by a Newegg rep.

Edit: I asked again, and was told this time that it does qualify for the free returns and no restocking fees benefits of Premier, just not the shipping benefits. Sorry for the confusion.

Hmm, even i spoke to a Newegg Rep yesterday as soon as the listing went up. According to him, the monitor doesn't qualify for Free 3 day shipping (which is one of the Premier Benefits), but does qualify for free returns. I'm not sure what to believe.
