[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 865

Perhaps try the Eizo Foris FS2735, BenQ XL2730Z, or go wide screen with the LG 34UM95, or 34UC98, or 34UC88-B(i've heard this one can go above 60Hz)?

With all do respect I really think that is nonsense. ASUS is selling the PG279Q as a premium monitor and so customers may expect a premium monitor where white is white and not yellowish on several parts of the display. Accepting these issues as a customer and telling yourself "the technology just isn't there yet" is wrong. If ASUS is not able to build a solid premium product they should not sell it as such.
If it was a 100 dollar monitor, sure. But i'm not buying a 100 dollar monitor because I want to buy a premium monitor without issues.

Also you claim that yours is a lot better. Why should another customer pay the same for less (terrible) quality?
Don't get me wrong, i'm happy for you but there are lots of people that didn't win the lottery and to tell them that the technology is just not there yet while you have a good sample yourself is not ok.

Simple said. I'm not accepting this and neither should other customers.

I am telling this almost a year now since I returned two of these get a Dell DG2716

Having to look at those pictures would bring out the OCD in me big time.
Yes the BLB is much better. No "edge plastic mounting grip" effects and silver glow instead of yellow glow. I don't know how to deal with uniformity issues (remember I'm on a TN). I'd say use a game or screen without a full solid color and see if that's acceptable.

That type of panel lottery though is why I haven't jumped on the upgrade train.

You have to keep in mind, that you pay a lot for the features and the name.
144Hz, IPS, GSync, WQHD, 27".
Also, currently there's only one manufacturer who makes these panels, that increases the price too.
If you want good uniformity, you either have luck and you get a PG279Q with good one or you have to look for a monitor which is made for working with graphics, colors etc.

Either you wait until LG brings a panel with these specifications or you keep playing the lottery or you just deal with an issue like that and live with it.
I decided to live with the uniformity issue, because I had 13 monitors here and the majority of them had dead pixels and/or dust.
Now I have a PG279Q which has no dead pixels, no dust or **** like that - But a uniformity issue which is not as bad as a dead pixel imo.

And even in the tftcentral test, it says that the top edge of the monitor was 29% darker and dropped from 120cd/m² to 93cd/m²
So, if you set your monitor to a higher brightness, this problem is much more visible.

Damn, i could have sworn.

Acer and Asus made their choice, and they compromised on backlight quality. It's nothing about the technology.

Then why has nobody found an alternative for him to try? What other monitors offer the same specs as this one with perfect uniformity?

Your comment is nonsense. Where are you extrapolating any of that from the title "premium"? There is no literal definition of that term in regards to computer monitors, or any other device for that matter. You shouldn't be expecting anything more than what the features on the box tell you to expect. There are no other guarantees, and if you are assuming otherwise, you are a foolish consumer.

"a 100 dollar monitor"

Are you joking? Do you have any sense of dollar worth? This is far and beyond the quality of 100 dollars.

I am just going to ask straight up. Should I buy this, the xb271hu, or the S2716dg?

Do you prefer IPS, TN, or have no preference?

In regard to PG279Q vs XB271HU, the latter will have its firmware updated sooner.

I currently use an rl2455hm monitor from BenQ and my though process is this: The colors on that monitor are absolutely horrendous next to my Macbook Pro's screen. I am not sure if my macbook is an ips display or not, but I have never (to my knowledge) used an IPS panel. All I really want is a monitor that is good for some light photoshop and lots of gaming, but I would really hate to have another monitor like my rl2455hm in which everything feels like its tinted an egg-white color. I have heard the 1440p TN panels are better, but I still dont know. Also, I am now intrigued by the S2417dg because I love the high PPI on my Macbook and that monitor seems pretty similar... There are so many options and unfortunately I cant get any hands on time with any of them, which makes this entire process so difficult.

Chances are, your macbook's display is glossy IPS. You're simply not going to find that kind of picture quality in a gaming monitor.

With that said, the closest you'll get is with the XB271HU and the PG279Q
IF you can get a unit with decent uniformity.

There are certain things one simple may expect from a monitor in this price range. They advertise it as IPS and IPS is known for good quality screen with accurate colour reproduction. Because its marketed as a IPS panel I expect it to have a good luminance uniformity as well as colour reproduction would be off. In combination with the fact that this is a monitor in a higher price range I call it premium. With this price one may expect they are using good quality parts.

So if i understand you correctly if white is yellowish on some parts of the monitor I may not complain because ASUS did not specify that white would be white on the box? What else do they need to specify? that the monitor has an on and off switch?

Long story short; IPS stands for quality so I expect good quality which includes proper luminance uniformity and colour accuracy.
