Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Worth waiting for? - Page 93  

post #921 of 1177
You can't fix the gamma other than with a colorimeter and a 3Dlut for games, anyway I am done trying to explain things to people who do not understand or want to hear it. I have enough information now... I will leave you all to get on with your raving about the Asus ROG brand. I wouldn't be surprised if some only work at 95hz when more are released.

This is just ridiculous and Asus worship at its worst. You WILL NOT SEE a 5Hz difference, but you WILL SEE scanlines!! How on earth can you say you'd accept scanlines over a 5Hz drop?? Of course, all these monitors should run at 100Hz as advertised, but I'd sure as hell take a 5Hz drop over scanlines any day!!

Besides, the PG348Q has only JUST been released. Some people HAVE reported scan lines... clearly this is inherent to the panel/tech, and it will continue to be an issue. PERHAPS Asus have been a bit more vigilant in the QC process, but it's FAR too early to know that yet.

Have Asus guaranteed to 100hz overclock on this? Or is it possible some will only work at 95hz? I have noticed it says "100hz" on scan.co.uk, maybe they all work at 100hz IDK.

This post went from a discussion to a childish brand war. Shame

It is metro, he goes round every monitor thread trolling the hell out of them lol...

The PG348Q looks good, BUT it is in not an amazing new monitor which is massively better than the X34. My only point was that it does not actually seem much better than the X34 (worse in some areas better in other, you decide what is more important)..

I can see the difference between 95-100hz, but the point is that the 95hz issue is wayyy out of proportion, the majority of X34 do 100hz if you have the correct GPU, and we have not seen enough PG348Q yet to see if they ALL do 100hz

But yes if it is actually true that some PG348Q still have scanlines at 100fps... that is actually worse.... On the X34 they are gone by about 60-70fps, and why you would ever want to play any game at less than 60fps on a 100hz Gsync monitor anyway? still early.. But someone saying "still has scanlines at 100fps" is a bit worrying.

Then just leave this post already. You've said it like two or three times you were done. At this point you aren't contributing anything new.

People are coming to this thread to discuss the PG348Q. I want to hear from people who actually own the product.

Tell that to Metros who spams Acer Predator X34 thread calling X34 inferior product and telling PG348Q is better, when actually there is not enough data about QC or overclocking to 100hz to prove that PG348Q is superior (PG348Q is way too new to the market to tell the quality of PG348Q vs X34 that is about 5 months old).

Ok but I was actually trying to be helpful... as well as finding out about it myself... If you cannot take any criticism then you need to "man up" and stop getting upset about it... Its just a monitor... But yes everything I have said is very relevant to anyone looking at buying a 100hz ultrawide... and if you want the asus you will probably buy it anyway, even if 50% of the catch fire when you switch them on

One of the first to get a PG348Q in the UK,(Wednesday10th 2pm ) but one of the last to upload photos, anyway as promised for the weekend...

http://www.overclock.net/g/a/1477253/pg348q/

Got there eventually :-)

Had to work a late one last night, so the last thing I want to do is sit on the computer longer.

I'm happy with it so far, although I do think that the calibration out of the box is not so great, my greys had a slightly brownish tint IMO.

As I said before , no dead Stuck Pixels, the best back light I've seen so far compared to others pics posted, but I will have to wait until dark for that as I am in a white room with a huge window, even closing the curtains still causes glare.

No problems at all getting the 100hz refresh rate on one Titan or 4x Titans, and the refresh toggle is very fast.

Been away from this thread a few days due to a funeral on Friday and a contract, but seems its turned into a bit of a squabble.

I don't think anyone that bought a X34 made a bad choice. Panel wise they are exactly the same, although its too early to say, but so far the 100hz problem is not so much of an issue on the Asus, or coil noise..

For me, like I said in the beginning, I prefer the Asus, and I said this before owning one. I hate glossy black plastic, makes things look cheap IMO, and I do like a stand that can swivel.

Plus from all the forums I have read, people that have actually owned both monitors prefer the Asus, and say the build quality is better, and I would have to agree. I've not owned the X34 but the build quality of the casing and stand is very high. Yes mostly plastic, but strong and well finished.

I'm not the best photographer sorry, and took the photos with my mobile, during the time of day the sun shines on the monitor so had to angle the camera a little, . Should have got the Nikon out. Mobile gives everything a fuzzy white edge when zoomed.

I haven't bothered testing to see if the speakers work as I have some Gigaworks speakers, so don't really care about the quality of the built in ones.

I don't think that anyone spending this amount on a monitor should accept any problems with them, or pay for people to check them first. If a monitor has too mush IPS glow, excessive BLB, dead pixels etc, for this price, it should be perfect. Its not just the X34 or Asus having problems but all monitors with this panel. Its the responsibility of Acer and Asus to make sure these monitors leave the factory without defects, and this panel has been in production now for over a year, so QC needs to be much higher.

People are afraid to send them back in case they get an even worse one, but I would definitely be sending mine back, and definitely not paying someone to check it, as its a QC problem that Acer and Asus need to address, not the customer. People really should not accept this as the norm. The more people complain and send back their defective monitors, the less money Asus make having to send out free replacements to retailers, so eventually they have to sort out their QC. Just my opinion :-)

Back to the scan lines thing. I've check very closely on my monitor, and its a very clear crisp image with no scan lines on the pendulum demo. But if I try to photograph it, there is banding and cross patterning etc on some shots, but this is very normal when photographing a CRT or LCD monitor.

I hope people are not thinking they have scan lines because they can see it only when photographing, as that's completely normal. If you cant see it with the human eye, you don't have scan lines.
