The reference white (nits) was a weird setting.
I used tftcentral recommended setting and everything was great. Now I can't even look at screen in HDR. It is just too bright.

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.
Man, it's so frustrating... I sent my PG27UQ back in April to Asus and had to wait one month for the update... I should have waited 1 month and do it myself.
At this point, I thought Asus would never release the firmware to public.

bmgjet 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.

Speezy 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.
