i think the monitor will be fine 110-240v as usual but you only need a plug adapter which costs $1-$2

Sort of confused, it seems HeXus is saying the ASUS PG348Q is using a 10 bit panel, I think this is wrong

"Display colors

1.07 billion (10-bit)"

Asus own site also says this:

The IPS panel gives you wide viewing angles with minimal distortion and color shift. The images will be vibrant and true-to-life thanks to a 100% sRGB color gamut, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and 10bit-color for 1.07 billion distinct hues.

I'm curious to see how their QC goes considering the acer x34 (which uses the same panel?) issues recently..... Hopefully they have hand picked these panels a bit better to guarantee overclocking ability, otherwise there will be seriously pissed off people, especially for the premium price they are asking for.

I gonna wait a few months and see reviews first me thinks....

im waiting too, i really want to switch to ultrawide but the problems with the x34 are just nothing i want to deal with right now. (ive had 4 different PG278Q and im now at my second PG279Q too )
i do really hope they improved their QC.

Wow that is awful.... four of the same monitors before you got a good one? those monitors are $1k here in AU too......
post #297 of 1177
yeah ive bought it the week it came out (the pg278q, that was october 2014) and asked them if i can return it if its having issues (there were already reports back then of failing units) and they were all like yeah sure, wont happen, our units are great. well once i hooked it up to the pc it went fine, for like 1hour than it just shut off and did nothing. so i brought it back to the store. they gave me another one and the same thing happend. so i went back again (all at the same day) and ive asked them if we can check it at the store to make sure it works, they agreed. so were opening this box and the bezels are bend and ****. then they had only 1 left and that thing didnt even turn on. so i got my money back. for the pg279q ive just returned the first one because of horrible ips glow, the one im having right now is almost perfect. i really want to change to ultradewide but its not like my actual monitor is bad - you just have to be damn lucky

Correct me if i'm wrong, i'm not fully versed on the tech to be honest.

It just worries me that people are willing to spend upwards of $2000 (for me in Australia) on something that could very well bust within a year or two? Or am I overestimating the potential risk of over clocking? Again a bit of a layman on overclocking.

I agree, on the Acer site it says "Boost your refresh rate up to 100Hz with built-in overclocking", the terms "up to" and "overclocking" are pretty sketchy.

Have ASUS officially announced the release date of this monitor yet? , I know they made a somewhat "official" announcement on the 29th of this month but I didn't see a release date.
