Also, OLED could be great in some years, but right now input lag/latency iirc is way too high.


ALSO ALSO, fwiw I bought my panel the other day in store at Tsukumo here in Sapporo, Japan and it is perfect. No dead pixels or uneven bleeding. I didn't see any QC stickers that people were mentioning here.

For me yes the difference was significant even on desktop.

But you forgot to also mention the Matte coating on the PG278Q is ATROCIOUS! Completely unacceptable for true panel PQ aficionados. I've had the PG278Q AND the PG279Q side by side with my LG and Samsung 1440p/IPS "Glossy" panels and they literally look like garbage even with decent uniformity samples ... add in the 2.5x$ premium, I just couldn't stomach it redface.gif

OLED is not that far off ... yes there are input lag issue's but man that picture ... from HERE biggrin.gif

Yeah, way too expensive right now. I was deciding between a 4K TV and this PG279Q for a few weeks, and those OLED screens are crazy nice looking, but they are just way too expensive for what you get....not to mention completely irrelevant for the needs of people in this thread who value high refresh rates and low input lag above all else.

Hi guys,

I noticed on my PG279Q that while using G-Sync and switching on games between windowed or full screen, sometimes I get a vertical line as if the screen was mis-aligned. I believe it is the very same issue as the one reported here:

https://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Monitors/Line-down-the-middle-overlapping-image/td-p/418751/page/6

I am wondering if this is a known issue and if there is any fix for it such as a firmware update, or I'd have to RMA? It's not a big deal (Everything else is perfect, all pixels, no bleeding at all) since I can easily get rid of it by switching from windowed to full screen (alt+enter) on games really fast (or turning off and on the monitor), but I'd prefer if I could fix this thing. tongue.gif

Any clues?

This is a known issue and they are working on it. There will be a firmware update but you will have to sent your monitor to the customer service when it's ready.
You can't update these monitors by yourself.

Btw this issue is not a critical one. It doesn't harm or reduce the lifespan of the display.

I know, it doesn't worry me since it has a very easy fix (like switching windowed to full screen on a game, or turning it off and on), it's just a bit annoying. tongue.gif

Why would someone swtich games between windowed and fullscreen mode on such a small monitor (other than alt-tabbing of course).
Curious question.

Lets not ignore/downplay the fact that the issue is totally unacceptable, still, given the premium price point and positioning of this monitor.

When you pay 1k for a monitor, you dont expect it to come with a pre-existing, well-known issue that will require you to physically mail/transport your monitor to a service centre to be rectified.

The issue seems to be with the Gsync module (people with this monitor dont experience it with AMD cards, but started getting it when upgrading to nvidia 1080 etc?), and it happened in the acer models too.. so who technically is at fault here? Is it nvidias fault?

Basically to alt-tab/minimize, I own a Battlefield 4 server, so I tend to minimize a lot to check the Admin panel, or simply to browse a bit when I get killed. biggrin.gif

Yeah, it seems to happen with G-Sync only, happened on my previous GTX980Ti SLI as well, so not GTX1080/Pascal related. thumb.gif


Any idea if newer PG279Q batches are shipped with this issue fixed already? Or not yet?

not yet, pretty much only July (or even August) made batches will have the new firmware pre-installed

Maybe about 50% of the times that I minimize or switch from gamemode to fullscreen and viceversa.

It happens a lot, but luckily fixing it takes just a few seconds. tongue.gif
