[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 839

post #8381 of 9398
Its still a lottery game, i got pretty good one with my first ROG, however its a returned screen monitor, i really dont get it why the previous user didn't keep it, i am not going to scrutinize every detail, for now no dust, no dust pixel, minimal BLB, all good...
If you like this monitor, keep persevering until you find decent one thumb.gif

Dear Valued Customer,

Hello, I would like to thank you for taking your time in writing this review. We certainly value your feedback. Just for your information, every NEW PG279Q sold in North America must now pass a visual inspection in a darkened environment before it's shipped to a vendor. This will help with the back light bleed issues. If your unit qualifies, we might be able to do an exchange for you. . If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Please copy a link to this post as reference.

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Regards,
Justin

It's mostly bs. Here is a photo of a January 2016 PG279Q that I sampled with the QC passed sticker on it:



It's overexposed, for sure. But you get the drift.

Hi all, just bought the monitor today where the ASUS staff claims it was shipped here 2 weeks back.

Took some pictures that what seems like unacceptable backlight bleeding, but i'm not really sure if it is BLB or just IPS glow. The first picture is with auto-focus, the second is without.

The photos were taken in a pitch dark room with no lights behind, so the monitor will have no chance of reflecting any light from behind.

Thus, could you guys advise me on whether I should RMA this monitor?

Thanks!

Impossible to tell from those, its way too overexposed . You have to film it without your phone and grab screenshots from the video and post those. Other than that, does anything bother you? If not, why go searching for errors? The perfect panel doesn't exis

Thanks for the quick response. Here's the updated screenshots and a video while moving around a little. Took a picture standing further away so as not make the image overexposed.

Seems like the BLB is mostly at the top right corner. Saw the mfg date as well stating it's the March 2016 batch. Should I still RMA this?

Does it bother you during normal usage? CAn you see any orange corners? Do you game in pitch black enviroment? If the uniformity is good on that monitor, id keep it, you arent gonna get much better than that tbh.

If it bothers you RMA it, but you wont ever get a 100% perfect monitor.

Agreed, if you can't notice the bleed during normal usage and you are happy with everything else, keep it.

Also, don't game in a pitch black environment. It's bad for your eyes, and ruins the perceived black contrast. Get a lamp with a 6500K bulb and ideally place behind your monitor for bias lighting. It makes a huge huge difference, trust me.

Hello guys,

I bought this thing at Amazon.es on Friday and it arrived today.

- Brand new, box was sealed with ASUS tape
- Mfg. date: January 2016
- No dead pixels.
- Panel uniformity (white background) is mediocre, but I can live with that.
- Now the hot topic: as expected, it has some minor bleed areas around the frame (which I consider acceptable) but unfortunately there's MASSIVE bleeding on the two right corners (especially the bottom one).

I paid 809€ (~$918.35) for this display, so this is a bad joke alright. I can't believe the balls of these scumbags at ASUS... how can this garbage pass QC?

Here's a picture (very low quality but it shows the issue clearly, exactly as I can see it with my own eyes):



If all four corners were like the top left one, it would be pretty good, I'd say 99% perfect. But man that bottom right... I played a movie with black bars (2.35:1 AR) and it made me feel sick.

I have my first RMA coming tomorrow morning, it will be interesting to get the chance to A/B a couple of them.

EDIT: Here's the display uniformity, pretty bad alright:

The PG279Q isn't worth the effort unless you're feeling super lucky, I think I've settled on PG278Q. Yeah it's TN and has some gamma shift but it's a good TN, if not for the heavier AG coating..... I honestly wouldn't be able to tell the difference in normal use. Just like you I put on a movie and felt like i was conned out of 800 bucks, there's good ones out there but you may never get one
