[Various] ASUS debuts ROG SWIFT PG279Q 144hz IPS and G-SYNC - Page 926

post #9251 of 9274
Just bought the PG279Q from Newegg on a refurbished deal. The 200 dollar difference in price is what drew me in. I unboxed it last night and ran it through a full test of the color spectrum. Not a single dead pixel! The backlight bleed is not even there, in my eyes. I see some normal IPS light that comes from the extreme angles - but I think I got extremely lucky with this refurb!

The only problem I have is the Asus logo has been mostly peeled away off the bottom center of the monitor, and the foil letters that were left stabbed me and cut my thumb!

Does your monitor buzz when you activate ULMB? thanks

From what I understand, ULMB does not work when I'm running G-Sync, so I couldn't honestly tell you since I have no need to test it :/

Well, if you could try it out a moment I would appreciate it, or if someone knows about the buzzing, let me know!

thanks!

EDIT: I'm going to send back the 2nd panel too, it's ******* annoying watching a movie and 3 corners with yellow tint from the BLB and even more ips glow on those corners because of BLB... SO you were all not as picky as I thought though... Don't know if I should keep trying or simply send it back and get my money...

No monitor issues with backlight bleed and I ran ULMB for a night of gaming and had zero extra noise that I could hear.

REALLY glad to hear that, I just ordered the same thing from Newegg last night. I picked up a Dell S2716DG 144Hz from Best Buy last night. Got it home and hated it instantly....the it has the notorious Dell TN version of white....which to me is a super dim yellow..tried all the usual settings fixes as well as ICC profiles and nothing. Going to return it today and wait for the Asus to come in with fingers crossed it's as good/intact as yours

Got another PG279Q from Asus yesterday.
Built in January 2017, was very surprised about that.

Can't find any dead pixels or dust.
BLB is there, but usually I don't play in complete dark rooms so I don't mind that.
I'll keep testing it a few more days to see if it stays free of dead pixels.

Congrats man! Glad to see they are still making new units. Hopefully the more this run is perfected, the better the future will be.

I have the PG279Q and PG348Q and have a problem with switching monitors/windows.
I would have BF1 windowed on my PG348Q and if I switch to my PG279Q, I get a 5 second lag delay.
It basically freezes and/or stutters for 5 seconds while switching in and out of the windowed game.
When I turn gsync off, the problem disappears and switching between everything is smooth.
Any ideas?
