I don't know how long it took from announcing the first Swift to it being on sale but I remember people tracking the boat with the first shipment for a month biggrin.gif

Wasn't the ROG Swift plagued with issues and nearly impossible to get replacements? I love how everyone's bashing the Acer monitor for their QC when the maker of this panel had plenty of issues of their own with the TN Swift.

Since no GSync module exists that uses HDMI we can be certain that only the DP input will use the good features of the monitor. That, or they convert the HDMI to DP internally which ads lag and thus is still unacceptable


We also need confirmation on things like ULMB.

You're right, but atleast this is another chance at a manufacturer getting 1440p 144Hz IPS G-Sync right and more competition and choice is better for everyone.

Also I hope they can get ULMB working at 120Hz

I am in no way saying that's a bad thing. Competition creates better products and better pricing. What I am saying is that anyone trashing the Acer monitor QC in favor of an ASUS counterpart for a better chance at a defect free panel is a hypocrite.

The HDMI port is great for me. I know it won't work with Gsync, but for my second rig (non gaming rig), is a plus.

Conversion still doesn't make HDMI capable of utilizing G-Sync. You can convert the pixel data fine enough, but the part of DisplayPort that enables G-Sync just isn't there in HDMI.

Not a fan of the way it looks. Could have had a better design.

I can only speak for myself but I want to buy a monitor with these specs and the QC issues of the Acer put me off enough that I was going to wait for Acer to improve later batches, but now I have another monitor to look forward to in the Asus. I also prefer the design of the Asus. Will QC be better than the Acer? Who knows, could be a lemon, only time will tell. Hardly being hypocritical.

Does this have the same light anti-glare coating of the Acer? All I need to know on it.
