[Official] ASUS RoG Swift PG348Q Owners Club - Page 193

post #1921 of 3542
Really love how this monitor looks, but not keen on the massive amount of issues that people seem to have, for a $1200 monitor....

Is there any way to guarantee you get a decent panel?

no, one can come to the store and discover all available monitors wink.gif

According to testing, the Acer panel is slightly faster (unnoticeably so), and the Asus panel has a slightly higher actual contrast ratio and color accuracy(again, you probably won't notice the difference). Although from what I've heard you have a better luck with Asus panels since their QC is marginally less abysmal than Acer's.

I just got one of these. Love the styling, panel is gorgeous. February 2016 build. Overclocked perfectly fine, don't see any scanlines, although I'm not exactly sure what to look for. Awesome uniformity, no pixel issues.

I am however puzzled by the bleed / glow. On this monitor does IPS glow typically appear tan/yellowish? It seems to go away in one corner when I move around, but not so much in the other. It's noticeable during gaming, sometimes sticking around on top of normal darker colours such as blue in addition to blacks. Not sure if it's worth checking out another to see if the bleed/glow is less pronounced. I could live with it if need be but it's mildly disappointing for the price, and sort of distracting.

Welcome to the wonderful world of ips monitors...

Haha I'm quite familiar with this. I came from the XB270 where glow looked silver and I was always told yellow is bleed, however these Asus monitors have tan/yellow that seems to sort of go away and sort of stay no matter how you look at it. Hard to know how much is bleed versus glow.

Are newer batch dates known for being better in regards to the bleed department? Just curious at this point.

I just got my panel in today. The only issue I've noticed is that the Nvidia display drivers will randomly crash while I'm just sitting at the desktop (not playing games). Has anyone else had this issue? I have my display at 100Hz.

I don't think that's an issue with your monitor at all. I think the newest Nvidia drivers are to blame because I've had a couple crashes on the desktop as well.. usually when dragging a window to the top of the screen to fullscreen it.

Yeah it happens to me in those situations as well. It just did it again directly after I was testing BF4. I have a PG278Q right next to the PG348Q, but it's not active (it's plugged into the same GPU though). I wonder if maybe have two different g-sync displays causes the drivers to tweak a little?

Just thought I'd share this with users who are suffering bad backlight bleed;

My unit had a bit in the top corners so I decided to try massaging it away. Low and behold the technique of pushing towards the corners with a microfibre cloth and holding the back of the panel really does nearly alleviate BLB. It's actually almost completely gone on my unit after trying this. Your milage may vary but I can report significant success doing this on this monitor!
