Just finished firmware update.
Took 1 hour 3 mins.
Blacks look better at 144hz. Cant tell any other difference with anything else.

I wonder if we will be able to use the firmware update once the new monitor releases they said it will still have the same black crush when using 144hz on the newer model I feel it should be priced exactly the same if they can't fix something like that on day one as the previous pg27uq or at least a little cheaper.

It will probably be more expensive. Micro LEDs in a gaming monitor is a first and products at the front line of innovation always attract a heavy surcharge.

why the firmware update hasn't been officially released yet? It's kinda weird that its only here because some guy got it from asus support.

Well, to clarify: I sent ASUS support emails, quoted/linked their own FAQ regarding the firmware update for over half a year now and asked for concrete updates. Recently I ended up getting a reply stating "Please have a look at this:" and they linked the very same FAQ I kept quoting for over half a year, that's it. I somewhat snapped and may or may not have told them to f*ck off in a more or less polite way. Around two weeks later I received another email with that link I posted here.


I don't know if ASUS made the tool "public" by now, and I don't care anymore if they do. I got really tired with ASUS being so silent regarding this tool, FAQ got updated Nov. 2018 I believe. Plus the monitor scene seems very uninspiring to me recently. Sure, PG27UQX, I can see it but it's not enough reason for me to "upgrade". I don't understand the PG349Q release either in 2019, maybe I'm missing the point. I'm out for now in terms of monitors and will be back when OLEDs or equivalents see the light of the day.

Yeah okay well i was kinda pissed about it aswell waiting a year for the update and now the black crush is finally fixed but do you have any idea about why this new update wont allow reference white to be changed anymore in hdr? No idea if it's intentional or a bug.

My PG27UQ is a release day unit. Updated fine you have to follow the instructions to the letter as in disconnect all other screens. Make sure computers set to not put screen to sleep. Make screen run at 4K 60hz. Not touch computer as its updating.

I bet those techs, Let the screen go to sleep which bricked the firmware update. Then they are just blaming it on hardware problem.
