Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 58  

post #571 of 1177
Amazon shipped my x34 in the standard box not double
Boxed. They said delivery was going to be on Monday. I went out of town Thursday night till Sunday. It was delivered in Friday and fedex left it sitting on my front step. Left it standing on end and we had monsoon pouring rains from Thursday night till Monday. The box was so soft from rain it caved in on itself. I put it in the garage to dry and called Amazon. The lady said did you at least try it, it might work. I said no and I'm not going to becaue even if it does it might develop a issue later and if Acer sees evidence of water inside idle be screwed. Anyway it's gone back and I'm waiting for the Asus now anyways.

Anyone speak Croatian? :-)

This is Serbian and it's a guy form Asus Serbia.

Basically, he's talking about all the features and I'm pretty sure that all of you already know them. Also, mentions 100Hz that can be "called" at any thime via single button, low blue-light but he advises all of us to just take a break from PC and WALK outside a little smile.gif He is very impressed by this monitor saying that they didn't want any compromises and that Asus is proud of their new monitor, calls him The Ultimate and this monitor is a classic force demonstration smile.gif

Ok :-)

I Copy / Pasted the main text and a few of the comments and Google translate said it was Croatian....

Google translate did a very poor job of the Vietnamese link I posted too..

The whole blue light thing is more about metabolism than anything else. If you are playing games late at night your body is tricked into thinking its still daytime and not time to sleep, so makes it harder to get into a sleep pattern, plus other things are affected like the autoimmune system, healing etc, and memory function, compiling everything we've experience in the day, which both process better when we are sleeping.

The flicker free part is more about fatigue, as although we cannot consciously see the on off switching state of the screen at 60hz+ the brain does, and its constantly having to adjust to it, so tires us out quicker.

But yes everyone that works every day on computers or plays long hours on them should definitely get outside frequently. Vitamin D deficiency, eye strain, and what was mentioned above will all take a toll on your system eventually

Getting Scan to test mine, as I have paid around £6K in the last month at their shop, might get some pictures soon smile.gif

DP 1.3 will bring much better refresh rates and enhancements. Paying 1K for Pg348Q or X34 now, and then finding the price has dropped to 799 in a few months is going to hurt a little, but with UHD media out this year and players, and the new enhancements and higher refresh rates DP 1.3 will also bring to gaming, it will hurt even more next year.

That's my only beef with this display (or the Acer). Both would have been GREAT a year ago, but today they just don't have enough "useful life" time left in them to justify the price. If you, like me, are REALLY pressed for an upgrade right now, try the Samsung, Dell, or LG for just a little over half the price, and save the rest for the new batch of DP 1.3 monitors we all know are "coming soon".

Yeah, I've also built two high end systems over the last 4 years mostly using scan components, the one I'm using now , just the stuff in the case is almost 10K.

I still think despite what some others say here that DP1.3 next year will make a difference, not just the refresh rates but true HDR, larger colour space, wider luminance range etc.

But the PG348Q is so damn tempting!!! AAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!
