[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 844

post #8431 of 9395
What about the speaker on both of them?
Are they the same?
post #8432 of 9395
Not sure about the Acer but the speaker on the PG279Q sucks. I use them sometimes but quality is ****, no idea why they even included them

Speakers on both screen monitor suck.

I owned both:

- I find the matte coating heavier on PG279Q that means i find a slightly grainier on XB271hu

-Speaker on both monitor are rather awful

- Best design and OSD ergonomic for ROG

- Uniformity/bleeding/glow/dust/dead pixels, well i believe you have to win the lottery game rather expecting something about these scree monitors (both brands)
I had bad luck on Acer and my ROG sample is better (2 Acer vs 1 ROG)
Although my ROG was a few amount of bleed, i can see it in the dark on black font: rather yellowish/orange tint
On my Acer samples: it appeared as white/silver tint
I know i had more bleeding on my Acer, i believe on Acer, the glow is more visible, on Asus the bleed is more visible and vice versa

I was pretty much set on buying ASUS PG279Q but after reading all those horror stories on various communities, I am very hesitant now.
Perhaps, I should go for DELL S2716DG instead.

Hi everyone I just ordered one and should receive it tomorrow. I need to check this monitor for issues and wanted to know what the dust issues looks like. I have never seen this type of issue before. Can someone post a pic showing the dust issue ? Thanks

Dell is a TN, not IPS.

I was also very hesitant to buy one after reading this thread
But i jumped the gun and got one anyway and mine is flawless

So yes they do have problems but the problems are perhaps way overblown thanks to this thread
The PG279Q is a fantastic monitor and while it does have problems its not on every single one of them like it sounds

As long as you are aware of the problems and is willing to take a risk there is no reason not to buy the Asus PG279Q.

My old monitor had dust stuck on the inside and it looked like a dark spot on the monitor so thats how it looks.

It also has a lot to do with tolerance to defects. Uniformity defects stick out like a sore thumb to me and I'm pretty confident I wouldn't be satisfied with any PG279Q in that respect. Seems some people don't notice them as much though.

And again my PG279Q is flawless i am just as picky as you if not more so when it comes defects
but there is not a single defect or flaw on the PG279Q i got

I might have been very lucky but it proves that not every PG279Q has defects.

Hi I got my PG279Q today and am am extremely happy to say it is also most flawless. I am a bit surprised and was expecting the worst honestly. I am happy with the panel I got as I was not to find any dust in the screen nor were there any stuck/dead pixels. Only issue mines has is a bit blb on the lower right corner. Here are the pics I took they are both taken about 2meters away. Please note that the pics show the blb a bit worse than what it really looks like

This one is at 100% brightness.




Here is another one at 21% brightness it is the brightness I will use 24/7.





Please let me know what you guys think I know these panels are not perfect and a bit blb is normal in ips panels. Since the blb is the only issue I found and the pics show them a bit more exaggerated than what they really look like should I request an rma and keep playing the lottery ? Is the blb on this panel acceptable ? Thanks


P.S. I also calibrated the panel with my colormunki display and display cal. This panel is awesome i am really enjoying it.
