[Asus] PG35VQ - 35" Swift G-Sync, 3440x1440, HDR, 200HZ Display - Page 67

Honestly it's not really ASUS, Acer and AOC per se. It's that they use AUOptronics panels in their gaming monitors. Pretty low quality stuff.

Not that Samsung panels seem to be any better, judging by the posts in this thread.

Hmn. While reading this i was thinking to myself. yeah i'm not believing it, dude had it on his desk for one day, lol.

But anyway, i of course then i checked the review.

Why i still somehow get excited about monitor reviews after reading them for over a decade when they are 99% of the time the same thing over and over is beyond me. Yet i still do. Must just be limitless hope tongue.gif.

That said, within the context of what we could only expect, or even hope for, this review doesn't look too bad. It seems to do what it needs to do at 120hz. I like that it does a decent low brightness. Contrast,.. really i have come to not really care too much about it. Anything close to 1000, is fine to me, but i just hate searing bright whites. I'm more about black depth. So in that, having a really deep black depth, but not necessarily searing bright whites, it still reads as a high contrast ratio. Gtg is of course no 4ms, Ctc is acceptable. It's definitely gonna have noticeable blur, but i could see those looking for a solid all around gaming and media 21:9 that this one would be pretty exciting to see on your desk, especially if you already went through the ips gamble in the past.

Yes, I remember the day when it was said that even though LCD monitors were hitting store shelves CRT's would always be a staple for PC's. And to think about it didn't have the inherent problems of LCD but I digress.
I look forward to that day. I embrace that level of change.

Makes you wonder what other technology will come out in the next 5-10 years that will surpass OLED. tongue.gif

Still the decision of those companies to buy those low quality panels and subsequently build a shoddy bezel and allow BLB. But you're right, AUO should also hold the blame, terrie QC on their end as well.

My review? I prefaced my impressions, not review, by saying it had only been a day, and that a professional review was on the way from a reputable company. Most of my observations could have been made in under 30 minutes, and I only posted because someone wanted to know how the monitor held up. I have plenty of experience with other IPS displays so really my impressions were only comparisons to the other IPS models. And if black levels are your primary concern you, VA or OLED is where you should be looking. That said, black levels, at least on my unit, are noticeably better than my older IPS models. This could be due to the less invasive IPS glow and minimal BLB, but really the blacks seem very deep, not far off from my Z35p. Thanks btw, are you looking for a new display right now as well?

the AW3418DW looks very good.. but after all this time is this all they can come up with? it seems the X34A is here stay for a long while.. reminds me of the OG titan / i7 2600k redface.gif

it doesn't help that they are still in the X34 territory yet still charging absurd prices

Yeh if you were lucky enough to get an X34 without defects or terrible QC, then it's questionable whether the aw34 is worth the upgrade. But a 120hz ips panel is still nothing to scoff at, especially since the 144hz panels aren't coming for potentially another year. One considerable improvement over the prior 34 inch models, for me at least, has been the mitigation or at least reduction of ips glow. With the X34 and Pg348q, the ips glow was almost intolerable. And pricewise, as of now, it's either the same or cheaper than the X34 and 348q. Amazon has them still going for 1100 or 1200 at times. I think really we're only going to see incremental improvements in panel tech until a well implemented FALD, or even better, OLEDs arrive to the display market.

over here the alienware is 200 more than what the X34 released for, like what nearly 2 years ago? tongue.gif

I think its going to take something like the x34 in terms of WOW to get me to upgrade

its like WOW i7 6700k (X34).. look alienware (7700k) biggrin.gif
