[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 793

Are those on 100% brightness ? If they are then it's great. Really barely noticeable BLB!

I just ordered my new PG279Q from Newegg.com. I have two questions.

1) Is it true the stand doesn't sit straight on with the monitor? I was watching a review on YouTube and it said that this was the case.
2) Is there no way to turn off the lights in the stand either? I hate extra lights around my computer when gaming.

Thanks!

Afaik you can turn off the lights in the OSD. The manual should provide that information.

1) The stand sits straight and function smoothly.
2) I've never seen my light come on, maybe the lights are powered via USB, i don't use the monitor as a usb hub.

edit: oh, the on/off switch for light on the stand is in the OSD: system-setup / light-in-motion

Brightness is about 23 on each unit. calibrated to 120cd/m2.... Really happy with my setup finally.. At 100% brightness you'd see the bottom right corner being the most problematic on all 3 of my samples.

My current annoyance is that running some games spanned across the 3 monitors at 7680x1440 resolution is pretty low FPS so far using Titan X SLI. I'll have to test more games to see if Titan X's simply can't keep up at this resolution or if it's the game not being very optimized at spanning.

The issue with the stand is that there's rotation indicators on the base (like a compass) and when you position the rotation to the mark that indicates the dead center it doesn't line up straight.. Seems like a manufacturing fault of design.. But this does not affect the position of the monitor or making it perfect.. It's just a slight detail Asus messed up on.

Just got my second PG279Q today, first one had dirt under the panel. This one is very good in all aspects. There's hardly any noticeable BLB and the white uniformity is acceptable to me. Actually it's better than my Dell U2713H which has a brownish tint.I took a couple of photos with my crap phone, so yes the quality isn't exactly fantastic but it gets the job done. Both pictures were taken with 100% brightness. Seems it's a november build.

After I calibrated the screen after TFTcentral's suggestion, it just looks awesome. Don't see any issues in dark games etc, IPS glow isn't an issue it seems. Only thing I noticed was my Dell U2713H's colors were a bit more.. lush if I should use a word for it, but I'll live.

Awesome news, congrats on the great units you received! biggrin.gif this is fantastic if it's free of the problems they tend to have. Happy for you!

I'm done, though, after 1 XB270HU and 4 PG279Q's and 3 months of sending them around the world and waiting. I'll get a PG348Q hopefully in a few weeks when they come in stock. If that's also bad, I have no idea what I'll do...

Here's a quick rundown of the issues my units had:
1. XB270HU: Dead pixels, very bad BLB
2. Oct. PG279Q: Yellow tint, dirt, BLB
3. Oct. PG279Q: Horrible BLB
4. Nov. PG279Q: Yellow tint, maybe 100+ bright pixels and a few stuck ones that weren't fixed with the apps, bad BLB, dirt
5. Dec. PG279Q: 5-7 dead pixels, dirt, bad BLB but only in bottom right instead of all corners and sides like previously. Oh, and top 1/3 of the monitor has slight tint and is noticeably dimmer than the rest.

I was hoping this last one would be good finally, but it unfortunately killed the tiny bit of hope I had left and the will to try any more of them. Maybe the next one might have been, but I'm done biggrin.gif

Again, I'm so glad some here have gotten good PG279Q's. I've been following this thread since October (if I remember right) and at least there are a few lucky ones! Enjoy! smile.gif love the pics.

Holy Batman you had some bad luck there! I myself had 5 x GTX 980 Ti's with coil whine, now on the 6th one that's finally working right. Is it just me, or has the quality assurance departments been reduced to a near zero with the manufacturers? Seems "QA" is a joke these days.

Gosh wow! Which brand, or are they all having coil whine? Crazy! Yeah it's even worse with GPU's, they're kinda expected to just work... Wow..6....

True. It's more like Quality Absence nowadays with too many products huh?
