I have this monitor, and its going back, due to me getting assburgers from IPS glow.

I took a picture of the pixel layout though, sharpness is like it should be, at least text is like it should be, can upload an image later if anyone wants that.

It has very light matte AG coating (much lighter than my VX2268wm, 120hz 22" TN panel from 2010~)

Sorry if anyone wants more, i already re-packed it though, so rest has to go by memory, a whole 10 minutes worth. - Guess neither IPS, nor 27" is for me!


Edit; i attached the image, its taken from a Pixel 2

i'm very interested in a 144hz ips panel
any problems with using the 144hz and freesync?
did it come packed with all 3 cable types and a driver disc? the 8Q version came with all 3 cables but no driver disc but the VA XG27PQ version did
what's the startup time? the 8Q is atleast 3 seconds and has to go through this asus splash screen nonsense... the XG goes through something similar with ROG but it's faster
the reason I ask is i've been spoiled with the lg's and it's like 1 second

from a normal viewing distance, does the text look soft? i'm looking for a softer look when comes to text, I know it's a tougher ask at 27" for 1080p but these lg's do it
my current lg's have ips glow so it's something i'm willing to deal with up to an extent

I did not test freesync (i have a GTX 970), 144hz worked fine though.
It only came with a Displayport cable, no drivers neede, none followed.
Startup time was about 3 seconds, there was no ROG logo, but an asus one.

From a viewing distance of 95 Centimeters, the text looked about the same as my ViewSonic at 62 Centimeters, the viewsonic is a 22" 1680x1050 Display.

I made a very small video, of the glow and the amount of BLB it had, but it didnt look like that in real life, so i didnt upload it, however i will say it had some bleed in lower left corner thats for sure.

$330 is borderline too much for this monitor, but consider the strobing + 144hz + 27" + IPS its not an absurd asking price.

It is the first of its kind offering a native 144hz 1080p IPS monitor, but i think it'd be a better value at $280. I'm personally going to wait for the smaller versions of these displays 23-24" is okay for 1080p. 27" i can easily see the pixels at my normal viewing distance. Depending what JOLEDs gaming monitor goes for i'll probably buy that as dealing with IPS glow or bleeding from LCDs is something i've dealt with for far too long. Also 1440p 144hz IPS is $400 from Acer, which is well worth the extra $70 over this monitor.

I was really looking forward to the new 4k 144hz freesync monitor from acer but the shortfalls of that one have put me off it entirely. I think by the looks of it i'll be waiting till late 2019 to get either a 1080p or 1440p 240hz IPS, i'd of course prefer the latter.

The price is a little bit off but at least it have fully adjustable stand. The only difference from those 1440p 165hz gsync panels is resolution really(and lack of gsync).
1080p is rather fine on 27". It's not a state of the art or anything but in games it's serviceable with fxaa or other good AA... and 1080p is still the most common resolution so no scaling issues.
It kinda makes sense seeing how rtx cards are aiming for 1080p with rtx in new games. Battlefield aims at 60, New metro will aim at 60 and so on. Kinda weird
Anyone tried it yet or found full spec? Would be good to know on the quality of coating, bleeding and panel used (auo or lg?)... still at that price 1440p vg270up is available and it probably can run 1080p just as well.

edit:
@Axaion reported a lot of ips glow and I've found this:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/co..._bad_ips_glow/
Does not look promising but pic is vastly overexposed... Looks like normal glow to me and no blb

I could have just gotten a bad monitor, but the upside is that at least it has good sharpness lol.

If one can deal with the glow (i might just be sensitive to it though.) and get a unit without too much BLB (mine had a pretty big blob on bottom left corner, actually made my old VX2268wm's black levels look like a VA monitor compared.) then it might be really good.

Panel lottery commence for the poor souls that are willing to do so

I don't like sharpness, it makes things too grainy, soft is much better for text and images
If you like sharpness you'll like the asus XG series with the VA panels

If you dont like sharpness, feel free to scale 720p on a 32" monitor or something, that will make it perfect for you.
That or you could put some butter on your monitor.

VA panels have horrific text rendering in most cases, not sure why you would tell anyone to use that for text

Neutral sharpness with a proper standard pixel structure is objectively the best, along with a sharpness slider in the monitors settings (which it didnt have, but my old monitor does)
