Brand new from Amazon prime, should be here Wednesday, I am so excited haha, I hope I dont have any major QC issues.

I got a Nexus 6 I will see if the default app will give me those settings and if not I will download one of the more pro camera apps to do some testing! I will keep you guys updated on my results since these should be the newest hardware releases at this point!

Just ordered the PG279Q here in Norway.
Got confirmed from the shop that it is a G8.

Will update this thread when I get to test it these coming days

What does G8 mean?

New revision I guess, the newer the better hopefully lol.

Im not 100% certain but I think the G8 is said to be the revision where they have started to manually inspect the monitors to ensure it passes their quality controls regarding dead pixels and light bleed etc. Maybe they started a little bit earlier, but G8 should be the best.

Asus promised they would step up their game regarding this, and from the reviews Ive seen lately, G8 seems to be the best. You can find good G2, G5 etc too, but that was more of a lottery.

But as I said, will report back when I have recieved the monitor and had chance to test it.

Fingers crossed

The way I understand it G is the year so 2016 and 8 is the month so August. I have a G8 serial but it's a refurb. They give the refurbs new serials so it was refurbished this month.

The original manufacture date on mine is January 2016 so it was a G1 before refurbishment lol

Good news regarding the yellowish tint issue.

After sharing my concerns with a support specialist from ASUS USA, and showing him around 10 negative reviews on amazon of customers complaining about the yellowish tint, he asked HQ for an explanation. Today the support specialist replied back to me telling me that ASUS HQ confirmed the issue and that the yellowish tint is because of a problem with the panels polarizer module. They've asked the panel supplier to change the polarizer module in January 2016.

The question now is when the supplier will fix the panels polarizer module and deliver new versions of the panel to ASUS so they can be installed in the PG279Q models. I've asked them if they can tell me when they will start shipping the PG279Q with the new panel so i'm looking forward to their reply.

Assuming you meant January, they asked the supplier to change the panels nearly 7 months ago, and they still haven't? I'm confused.

Yeah, still waiting for their reply. Would be great if they can tell us the issue is solved for displays manufactured after a certain date.
I was also wondering, what would ASUS do with the panels they've already bought from the panel supplier. If 50% of the customers don't care about the yellowish tint or simple aren't noticing it. I can imagine ASUS is first trying to sell the "old" panels because calling them all back would cost a lot of money.
