[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 779

The only problem is that they don't sell the XB271HU in the Netherlands yet.
Now I have to choose if I go for a refund and gamble with the Acer (though with way better chances for a faultless panel) in a few months when it becomes available here or I just accept that fate is cruel, the world is less than perfect and keep this Asus. Decisions again...
still a lottery with the Acer, but a lottery with anything really if you think about it. I would say, wayyyyy better chances at getting a good Acer than Asus. And for the record, I am a huge Asus fan.

The panel used in both is the same, from what I have read on here it has to do with the way it is mounted in the frame and overall design. I don't see the issues with the PG going away without a redesign of the monitor coupled with better QC process to catch the bad ones from leaving the factory. I am going to guess it will be a long time, if ever, before we see these changes.

Here are a couple pics of my XB for your reference:





Both were taken with a phone camera, so the BLB pic is very exaggerated, I don't see any of that in person, only minor silver IPS glow.

Thanks for the pics, mikesgt. Now that's what I call screen uniformity. And the silver IPS glow that can be seen on the other image also looks pretty normal. I would trade my Asus for your Acer any day of the week.
I'm sure now that I'm going for a refund and test my luck with the Acer as soon as it becomes available in the stores here. As you said, it will be still a gamble, but a gamble with better odds.

I think that is a good call!

I really love the PG279Q except for the uniformity issues, I really think that is the biggest flaw with this monitor. Wonder if it is even possible to recieve one without this issue? What is the reason behind it? Is it the build structure, how the panel is mounted with the backlight, and back cover? Or do we simply just blame the panel lottery?

from what I read on this forum, it has something to do with how the panel is attached to the bezel which doesn't really make sense to me, regarding the uniformity problems. It does explain the bad backlight bleed problems, but not really the color uniformity. Not sure either why the uniformity is so bad with this monitor compared to the Acer version which uses the exact same panel.

Uniformity is a panel defect has nothing to do with hows its mounted. Also the 271HU isn't using the same panel as the 279Q.
TFT reviewed the 279Q also CallsignVega opened his 271HU's and the model numbers on the panels are different.

Is it safe to assume that the same AU panel that's in the XB271U is the one being used in this PG279Q? Skimming through the gallery pictures of this thread I see many similarities in defects... Just wondering if my 3rd replacement comes back a dud, whether to try out the ASUS train or if it's not worth it.

PG279Q glow seems to be more yellow/orange usually.

Decided to buy one of these yesterday. It's a december model.

I would like to hear your thoughts on this panel. The BLB is quite minor at 21-25 brightness and a bit visible at 50 and higher. Only the bottom right is really visible in games. It's a (bad) phone camera so the images aren't that great.

First image is 25% brightness, second 50% third also 50%. blue thing on the left is the collapsed windows taskbar.

I guess some people are more tolerable than others when it comes to BLB. For me this is beyond unacceptable.
