Should I pull the trigger and buy MG279Q ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am wondering should I pull the trigger and buy Asus' MG279Q for 570 EU (628$) through a store where they unfortunately don't accept refunds for dissatisfaction of the product.

So basically I need to have a either dead pixel or some horrendous backlight bleeding to be able to get my money back since I don't want to waste my time replacing this monitor until I get the correct one (if the one I get has some of these problems which it seems the case to be).

The main selling point of this monitor for me was 1440P + 144HZ + IPS, and the other IPS monitors who have same thing have the same problems as this monitor.

If anyone here can help me solve my dillema I would be grateful , and if you guys would recommend against buying this monitor are there any other 1440p monitors with 144Hz (hopefully IPS but I doubt it) ?

Thanks.

I bought my MG279Q several weeks ago and so far it has been great.

Some wisdom I've learned concerning monitors over the years is that the most important part of the purchase is to buy from a dealer who will accept exchanges within a reasonable time span. The second thing to do is to run it through as many tests as possible within the return/exchange window to ensure no flaws exist. I'm kind of fussy about my equipment and nothing but perfection in the monitor was expected for the price that I paid. Others people may not be so fussy about dead pixels or light bled

On my first MG279Q, I had a dead pixel and was able to exchange it for a perfect monitor with zero dead pixels and no light bleed or dust issues.
I did have to pay a little bit extra to buy zero dead pixel/no light bleed insurance (2 years).

I was so happy with the monitor I bought a R9 390 graphics card to go with it and put my existing GTX 760 into another build.
Just be aware that the rating is from variable refresh range of 35-90Hz when using FreeSync.
It will do a fixed refresh rate of up to 144Hz,

Well unless you are an NVidia user, you would be wasting your money on the Acer XB270HU and Asus PG279Q. Eizo however has a 1440p+144Hz+IPS+Freesync monitor coming out. Maybe you should check that out, hopefully it will have a better Freesync range of say 35-144Hz and it also will include blur reduction.
