[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 780

post #7791 of 9290
I haven't made up my mind yet about whether to return it or not. It looks worse on the picture but it is definitely noticable in some dark games. So I though I'd get some other opinions. It's not worth the 850 euros I paid for it that's for sure.

I guess some people are more tolerable than others when it comes to BLB. For me this is beyond unacceptable.
I agree, I would cringe each time I see that on an all black screen or watching a video/movie on the monitor. Hate to see that the Dec. units don't seem to have improved much in this category either.... I personally don't see Asus upping the quality of these monitors any time soon, if ever. Heck, it may not even be possible based on sheer design.

I would give some more time. The BLB on my 3 latest PG279Q improved a lot after a few days. What about uniformity, anything you notice when using it?
post #7794 of 9290
I've looked at some white backgrounds I don't see some of the yellow hues found on a lot of other screenshots in this thread but it doesn't seem consistent throughout. Some places on the display seem a little bit darker than others.

If the BLB would improve I would probably keep it but after playing some Metro Last light (with the fps preset) I can say the bottom right corner really bothers me now. It's too bad the XB271HU is not for sale in the Netherlands or I would've bought a ticket in that lottery.

Here are some pictures of mine in a dark room with the monitor set to 100% brightness. It's a december unit. I haven't spotted any dead pixels so far, the red dots on the left are reflections from the camera light. The pictures were taken from a distance of about 70 cm from the panel.




The light from the lower right corner is quite distracting and noticeable in dark games even at 0% brightness.

These pictures were also taken under similar conditions as your photos. A dark room, monitor brightness at 100%, about 50-70 cm distance. Unfortunately with a phone camera but the bleed is also visible to the eye.





This image was taken from Metro: LL at 80% brightness with 75% saturation enabled. The whole bottom right is all BLB, the light above is ambient lighting.

Yeah IPS is really not suitable for immersive gaming especially in darker game environments.

Rwtd and kaelthai: both of your units would be auto-returns for me. Sorry to say. I can deal with a small amount of BLB if everything else about the monitor is good (uniformity, dead/stuck pixels). But it crosses the line when BLB is visible in regular usage and certainly while on dark backgrounds within games. You are paying a lot of money for these monitors. Demand better.

And also, don't fret about not yet buying into the XB1 lottery. XB1 number 7 is getting delivered to me tomorrow rolleyes.gif

Damn... 7? I don't think I have seen anyone go through that many XB1's... where are you getting them from? Kind of surprised they aren't concerned about the amount of returns. What was wrong with the previous 6 if you don't mine me asking? The XB has a much higher track record for keepers, so to hear that you have went through 6 is just mind blowing.

No offense, but that would be shipped back asap. That is ridiculous. Still can't believe that is a Dec. model too. How that even made it out of the Asus factory is beyond me, completely unacceptable at this price point.
