That will be next week, as I have to wait until Monday or Tuesday for my EK Predator 360mm, I have to use my old system now (FX 4100 and 5850, not sure it would even work) however when Scan tested with a black screen they said this

"One of the QC members did mention that there was a slight bit of IPS glow coming from the bottom of the monitor, but he had to look very hard to spot it, it shouldn’t affect your performance or usage"

Metros why you gotta troll me with these "BOX" pictures. Open that **bleep** up and show us. I'm sure you can still enjoy the monitor even if you don't have your main rig up and running.

It seems we got a winner!

Just set my display up, unfortunately having to work so maybe pictures later tonight (also better to document BLB, if any, because so far I see none). Short feedback, also compared to X34 (had three so I know that one)


1. Setup: A bit of a pain. Getting the stuff out of the box alone takes almost acrobatic skills and then fumbling around with screws etc. - it is a 10min exercise but compared to the X34 which was fully set up in the box it just feels a bit 'DIY'. Quality of components however pretty good (except for the plastic flap that goes onto the back, a bit very plastic-y but who cares)

2. Initial BLB impressions: Outstanding! On a grey London day with backlight set to 45 (out of box 80 burns my eyes out) I can not see any BLB whatsoever, in any corner, on a totally black background. Impressive. To be retested tonight when it is dark

3. Colours and subjective feel for image quality: Perfect for me - looks great, looks what I would call 'realistic'. Looking forward to see some people posting better RGB settings but out of the box very very happy. Had a very quick run at GTA V with GSync on at an average of 80FPS and it is buttery smooth, subjectively feels better than X34 (can't explain why, just seems to be smoother)

4. Issues known from X34: No scanlines which I could detect; No issues getting 100Hz (but never had that with X34 either, all three were perfect); Much easier display navigation; and most importantly for me: No noise whatsoever! Totally white background and I can hear nada!

So all in all - one happy customer here so far. Will put it through it's paces tonight I hope

It's actually sounding like ASUS used better parts and engineering on the board for this unit verses the X34, I really can't wait to get mine once they hit the states! Thank you for the updates everyone, please keep it up!

Just pray that they finally improve QC on PG279Q too....

Does it have any gamma options? Or is it fixed at 1 setting?

It is pretty common for a screen to look perfect in the day, then as soon as it gets darker things look a fair bit worse... I am interested to hear about it or see some pictures... it will have IPS glow that is a fact, but the amount of backlight bleed could be different, and backlight bleed can make the IPS glow worse.

My unbox review

Welcome to my review, I hope you enjoy reading, good quality images will be posted later on, should be about 5.00pm

Let's start from the beginning, trying to unbox this monitor can be so difficult, the polistrain is so tight and difficult to pull out without breaking it, although this is good, as it gives it extra protection, once you open the box, you are introduced to this great large panel (it is quite heavy) once pulling this out you are introduced to other bags (protective bags) with contents in them

Contents:

DP 1.2 cable
HDMI 1.4 cable
USB cable (for the USBs at the back of the monitor)
UK Power plug
Power supply
ASUS VIP club
Sticker
Safety paper
CD Manuel disc

Also the larger contents are the stand feet, stand (for the panel) these are also in protective bags and the cable back plate for the panel

I first took the feet out of the bag, these feet are steel (I think) and have rubber pads under them (to stop it from scratching the desk or worktop) they are quite heavy and very stable

Next is the stand, this is plastic and has the RoG light within it (which needs to be placed into the feet) the copper sections of the stand are also plastic. The panel arm is steel with some plastic. The copper on the back of the monitor is also plastic

Ergonomic adjustments

Height - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

Swivel - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

Tilt - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

The bezels on the monitor are plastic with a lined texture to them, the back of the monitor is also plastic

Nearly all of the plastic used is good plastic, not these awful plastics that you can find on some monitors

The screen has a protective cover and bubble wrap on it

Overall I think this monitor is well constructed and it looks great on a desk/worktop



I will test games next week (it will be Monday or Tuesday) as I have not got my EK Predator 360mm yet, to use my new system

If you have any questions, I will be here, one image for you (bad quality)




Thanks for reading
