does anyone have a good color profile? I'm currently using a qnix profile for the asus and its definitely better.

If it's uniform across the screen, just lower red and green gain until you get whites that look white. But these screens are notorious for terrible color uniformity where one half of the screen is yellowish and the other half bluish.

So i got the first one from warehouse deals the second will arrive on saturday. What do you think about this one? Brightness on 25, contrast on 50 with TFT central ICC

Pretty pleased with the image quality on my monitor.

But I have a weird issue with some random blackouts, the screen goes *bzt* and goes black for just a few milliseconds and then returns.
Sometimes this happens quite frequently, sometimes it happens perhaps once a day.

Another issue is when this happens everything becomes really blurry, and at that point I can't do anything except reboot. Doing anything else, reconnecting cables etc the displaydriver crashes for all my monitors. Its just the Asus that has this problem.

Are both of these issues attributed to a bad Displayport-cable? I had the exact same issue with another one that i got exchanged. (Did try the other cable, same result)

I think I'll send mine back.

Don't notice any difference with Gsync compared to my 120hz Qnix without Gsync. And the colors on the Qnix are waaaaay better.

I have this issue once in a while and don't know if it's caused by the Nvidia drivers (I have the GTX 980Ti) or by the monitor (Gsync or something). It always happens after waking up the PC.

I had a similar issue on another monitor, bought some better quality Display port cables (the ones that have the interference filters at the end of the cable - see pic) never had any issues on my PG279Q or my old monitor since.

keeper or not, what do you guys think?


standard profile:








then i tested a couple out I found on the internet and on tftcentral, this one is by far the best in terms of showing white and not yellow. from the asus_mg279q.






as comparison, these are my qnix:

screen1





screen2







and tbh, it looks much more dramatic on screens than it is in reality? I do not see it in RL like it shows on the screens.

Download the asus profile and install drivers from their website. Driver and profile is under other and it's the WHQL driver file. Install driver via device manager

https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-SWIFT-PG279Q/HelpDesk_Download/





and follow this guide from asus to install it properley

I can get the Dell S2716DG for nearly $400 less than this monitor.

Is it worth it to return my PG279Q and grab that instead? Has anyone compared the two side by side?

Why you want to do that. this monitor if there's nothing wrong with this monitor it's then worth keeping this. You have more features and a better pannel (ips [asus] vs TN [dell]) and on my monitor the whites are white. Maybe not perfect but very good. I like the 165hz and the g-sync that comes with it and it will help me not needing to get the latest and greatest gpu to get me to 165fps all the time and fps. I know the Dell also has gsync but This is higher Hz. If you have no issues with your asus panel then stay with this panel for now unless the $400 is big enough for you. Don't go by the Response time as well as it's just pixel response and not related to input lag. The PG279q has better input lag than the pg278q that is tn.

according to TFT central the PG279q has beter input lag than the Dell sd2716DG
