Asus MG278Q vs Asus MG279Q for PC gaming and a lot of Console Gaming... - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Thats the monitor I upgraded from actually, I wanted to expand from 1080p and was a little sensitive to the flicker, but the colors were terrible out of the box. Got better after some calibration in the OSD settings. But I also used that monitor with my PS4 and Xbox and it was fine in terms of lag (havent noticed a difference between the 279q to be honest, and im very sensitive/ intolerant to lag as well.) If you have the dough to invest in a better panel type like an IPS, I strongly recommend you go that route.

thank you guys for your help...I wasn't looking into the 279q due to light bleed with the ips panels and the fact that it's 4ms vs 1ms but I thank you for all the help I just can't decide between the two...meaning the 278q and 278q

MG279Q=Vibrant and even colours, good viewing angles and a clear matte coating but more back-light bleed and white glow when viewing dark content.

The 1440p TN panels have slightly faster pixel response times but more overshoot ghosting unless the TN panels overdrive is reduced (Trace Free 40 from the MG278Q reduces the overshoot but slows the pixel response time down) which negates the speed advantage; overshoot ghosting is more obvious since it is quite unatural looking. Also, consider the Acer XF270HU instead since it has a higher Free-Sync range and likely has less lag at 60hz than the MG279Q which has a little bit.

This post contains a few comparisons including the Dell S2716DG which uses the same panel as the MG278Q and offers the same image quality. If not viewed on a TN panel it is obvious that the Dell has dull and uneven colors compared to the others.

Heavily exaggerating, I rather go for the TN because of faster pixel response and an IPS could have possible bad backlight bleed.

Not the freesync models but they are most likely very similar, the difference is not significant at all between the IPS and TN if viewing them head on and not at any obscure angle.
