[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 785

post #7841 of 9309
Hey guys.

We opened up 20 of these monitors at work to check for the BLB.
We didn't find any dead pixels, but we did find some BLB. Most panels had a manufacturing date of September 2015.

Here's the BLB:

And for comparison, the other TWO PG279Q (both September builds) that I kept look like this:

And the other:

I figured Asus fixed the Orange glow problem by now. The new December build is orangy still..

So nothing changed since September models... Guess I will still play XB lottery. In terms of pixels/dust it is the same crap lottery, but at least BLB is smaller and uniformity is better.

Ech...really, I wish LG and Samsung step up and start to get into gaming monitors. Nothing helps QC more than bigger competition.

Good luck with your next one! Fingers crossed thumb.gif

Thanks for doing this. Looking through the album I saw maybe 2-3 monitors that I could consider keeping. No monitor was free from bleed. Add to that other issues such as uniformity, and the likelihood that you want to keep one of these monitors approaches zero. For the price Asus (and others) charges, I want a perfect monitor, and that's it.

Going to a store to look and test some PGs tomorrow and swap one with the one in my last comment. any recommendations for testing in the store? except for the obvious BLB/uniformity and dead pixels test.

Also ordered an XB from germany which should get here within my "buyer's remorse" period so hopefully can finally find one monitor that's decent.

Thanks for doing this! What about white uniformity? Did all 20 monitors display whites perfectly? I returned mine for that reason alone.

In the grand scheme of things during usage.. been using my December panel for gaming and movies and normal Windows usage and the bottom right corner is hardly noticeable. . I may just keep it and use it as my far right screen since the positioning of the far right minimizes the BLB in the bottom right corner.. The photos I took really amplify the BLB than it is in real life .. But I did get a RMA and return shipping label.. My fear is my next one might be worse or have dead/stuck pixels.. All 3 of my PG279q's don't have any pixel problems which would bother me far more than slight BLB.

And the results are in.. this monitor is still very problematic. Both December builds... Monitor #1 had pretty bad BLB and a stuck red pixel. Monitor #2 had better BLB, but worse uniformity and one bad pixel in the upper right. I couldn't wait to hook my XB1 back up. Once I did, I ran the same tests again that I that I just ran on the PG's and there is such a huge difference regarding BLB and uniformity between the two. It isn't even close.

So, no more PG attempts for me for quite a while, if ever. Pretty happy with the XB1 despite the less than pleasing stand.
