[Official] ASUS RoG Swift PG348Q Owners Club - Page 181

post #1801 of 3542
I got my replacement, BLB, Glow, Pixels are like the previous one.
Faint Scanlines, I can't see them from a normal distance.
A little Coil Whine, not important, I can't hear with the headset.
The worst of the panel is the Gamma, by default 2,05 or something near that. I can calibrate it with Windows and now I have a 2.2 Gamma, but what are the cons of that calibration instead of the default gamma in games and apps? Will it change in games?
The colors by default are washed out, even with TFTCentral ICC profile.

Is there a way on this monitor to tell if gsync is on? I know the old PG278Q indicated it with the light ring at the bottom but I am unsure if there is any external indication on this one.

EDIT: NM found it. When Gsync is off the power light is white, when it is on the power light is red.

Also, the on-screen FPS counter doesn't work with GSync off.

I live in Belarus and any-reason-returns are not offered by our sellers. Furthermore they ask for 10% prepay on such "expensive and rare" products. And this is with the price about 2000 euros smile.gif
Lucky I am I had a chance to go to neighboring Poland and get one on regular european price with 23% tax return so it cost to me about 1100 euros and the trip.
Mine is okay, minor coil whine, normal 100Hz, March 2016 manufacture date.
But I think its kind of outrageously, when specs are not guaranteed. I dont like this lottery at all even if i won this time. Asus and others should be denied advertising it as 100Hz monitor or guarantee 100% return without any troubles and fees.

Just received it with manufacture date April 2016
Can't test it properly yet as I'm planning on getting a 980ti tomorrow


Whats the best way to test for backlight bleeding?

post #1807 of 3542
Is this backlight bleed? Seems to be a lot.
This is at 40 brightness

Wew, that's pretty much almost exactly what I had, check a few pages earlier for an overly-exposed image tongue.gif
And it's mostly IPS glow actually, it changes depending on angle of view, right? Anyway, I returned mine before I could check the manufacture date, and am still waiting for the new one.

It does change with the angle yeah.
I'll just keep it can't be arsed to stuff it all back in the box and return it.
However if it shows scanlines at 100hz i will return it

So, I just called the store to ask them why didn't a new monitor arrive yet (they said it would arrive on Monday or Thursday), and they said that they're just waiting for a new manufacture series (I don't know the proper name for the term) since pretty much everyone is returning the monitors made in this one. Although I still don't know the precise date of it.
