[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 782

post #7811 of 9290
Interesting, when you try to look up the PG on newegg, it looks like it was pulled. The search results pull it up, but when you click on it, the product is not found. I wonder if they are stopping sales of this monitor for the time being?

Nearly same panel type - I think the only thing to do for now, is wait for the next line of 144hz IPS monitors... Because it seems like they just cannot get it right with the current panel.

I have 3 other monitors in the house - and I have never in my life seen any of the issues Ive had on my 3 PG279Q's.

Today I was talking with Asus about hte next RMA - and to my suprise, they told me that they cannot "say good" for their product, and that I should request a refund rather than RMA if I wanted a fully functional monitor - since it wasn't going to happen.

And that was the words from the next level guys not the one in the customer relations...

Sad times...

I went through at least 5-6 PG's before going to the XB route, and got a good XB within 2 monitors. The uniformity is night and day different, and the BLB does not exist, all silver IPS glow. Telling ya, big difference in the two even though they use a similar panel (not the same model, CallsignVega proved that).

Got tired of Amazon never having stock for more than 5 minutes on the 279Q.. Ordered from Newegg just now for my 3rd unit.. Hoping for better white uniformity! Let you know, think it shows up on Saturday.

I am done ordering from Amazon, got the email about their return policy so no more returns with them. I ordered one of these off newegg, even though I have a good XB. I will give it one more shot....

Glad you like it. Can you tell us a bit more about it, such as manufacturer date? Have you checked out the back light bleed and color uniformity?

Just got mine from Newegg, I ordered yesterday got the rush processing and it showed up today. It's a december build, white uniformity actually looks pretty good. Backlight bleed is definitely there, but I've seen worse. Not sure yet but I might keep it. There might be 1 dead/stuck pixel I found, but honestly it's a struggle to pick it out even if I get right up to the screen. Non-issue for me. Photos are taken using the calibration settings from TFT central.

White uniformity


Backlight bleed, head on


Backlight bleed, right side


Backlight bleed, left side


The bleed shifts quite a bit from one side to the other. The camera is making it look MUCH worse than it does in person, but it's also still light out. I'd love to get one with less bleed, but this one seems to be pretty good compared to the others. What do you guys think?

I got the following problem:
If I enable ulmb (in the driver and in the osd) and i close the osd, I just get a dark screen. I mean not darker, like when ulmb is enabled, more like no backlight at all.
What is my problem? Do I have to do something else?
