Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 39  

post #381 of 1177
Thread Starter 
I noticed today that the product page is no longer on the Asus website. There was one up for a little bit, wonder if that was intentional or not.

Aah Ok, I was using the link from a previous posting since when I went to the Asus website and just selected the 21:9 monitors it only showed up with 2 different monitors. Weird, Thanks though! Glad to see that it has the VESA mount on it, was worried with that stand and the fancy looking back that it might not support that.

So guys, if we're lucky some of us (me too) will recieve this beauty in like 15 days (i hope)
Have you got suggestion on how test our monitor?
What programs can we use to decide if our monitor have got some of the problems we are afraid of? or we have just "win the lottery"?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Its like anything you purchase a lottery.

Once you get the monitor, its old fashioned testing.

Black screen in a dark room to test back light bleed.

Completely white screen, to look for dead pixels,

Completely black screen again to test for bright / stuck pixels.

And from the sounds of it, the refresh rate you get will depend on your existing GPU set up, but I agree with others here, for the price even one dead / stuck pixel, or a refresh rate below 100hz, and the thing will be going back to the seller.

I have always used a program like Paintshop or Photoshop, created a completely Black or White canvas size to whatever the resolution of the monitor you are testing is, and go full screen edit for a completely blank screen.

I'm sure there are other methods, but this has always worked for me.

You can speak with your retailer before purchase and ask if they will test the monitor for defects before dispatch, although they will probably charge you for doing so.

You can just use UDPixel to test the colors of your monitor, works great.

well, that worries me they removed it from the main site. I hope we get it sometime soon in the US. I'd much rather order from someone here than "across the pond" in case of issues.

There were a few more computer forum sites announcing the PG348Q yesterday quoting that the PG348Q will be available worldwide by the end of February. Strange that none of the main E-tailers in the US have it for pre-order yet?

A few Indian websites announced the PG348Q a few days ago, but said it wont be available until April there....

So far I have only found three E-tailers in the UK listing it for preorder..

Scan

Overclockers

Aria PC

All for £999.95

Only Sacn lists an ETA of 12th February,

Strange that jd.com, a Chinese retailer already had it listed as pre-order on February 1st, and people already received the monitor after one day, but they paid the premium price, 14000 yuan, which is about 2100 USD.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95

Some things in the thread: base stand is plastic, doesn't seem to support 10-bit,BLB is ok on this monitor, one dude says his monitor only works fine under 90Hz.

Link to the thread if anyone in interested, it's in Chinese btw:https://www.chiphell.com/thread-1523841-1-1.html

I'm sad now.
