my PG35VQ was super silent compared to my Pg27UQ they Pg27uq would also constantly ram the fan up and down. It was so annoying. The fan ended up dying and ran at full speed after 8months of use.

i do like that the monitor displays a console on the hdmi port properly. the pg279q i have wouldnt unless i unplug the monitor then plug back on.
They fixed the fan sound in PG35VQ but that monitor has its own issue so hard to find a good monitor even when paying so much these days..

HyperMatrix After over a year of owning 2 of these monitors, I have to say I wish I had never bought it. A few key reasons:

1) Lack of GPU power to properly use the monitor (I blame Nvidia/RTX Fail Series for this). I've stuck to playing mostly racing games or rpg games that can be played with a controller. But....when I play games I can play with a controller....I prefer playing them on my TV. And when I lower the graphics settings or internal resolution scale on FPS games to be able to play them at a fluid rate, I remember how much better it would look when I was actually playing on a 1440p monitor. I went from doing 99% of my gaming on a PC monitor, to 50% on monitor and 50% on my TV now.

2) The matte coating, and lack of black contrast layer. Comparing it to my TV, the glossy pure black that Samsung uses makes images look so much more rich and vibrant. This is sorely lacking.

3) The FALD system. It's horrible. On the desktop when you move your mouse cursor, the entire color/brightness of the large 1" or so area around the cursor changes. There is no proper blending of the light zones either. And again, because it's missing that deep black coating that Samsung uses, it becomes impossible to block out minor bloom/haloing. So with the matte coating, and the poor FALD system, you get a worse contrast experience than you would with even a good edge lit HDR samsung TV. In FPS games there will also be a light blob around your crosshairs in the middle of the screen, or around any light source in the dark. It's really all very poorly done and despite showing off how hard it was to implement FALD with GSYNC, which I believe it was, it's a terrible experience.

4) GSYNC/HDR switching timing. Tabbing into/out of fullscreen games takes several seconds. On my TV I know it takes a second and a half to switch to HDR mode, but this is a lot longer, and annoying as hell. Especially when you're playing a fullscreen game, and you adjust the system volume, and windows pops up the little volume hud, which disables HDR momentarily, then takes a couple seconds to get you back into the mode.

5) 98Hz actual 10-bit HDR. I'd prefer 98Hz on the desktop, with 120/144Hz in games. And sometimes it works. But sometimes it doesn't. And it gets worse if you decide to wish a game could be played in 98Hz instead, but the game has no refresh rate controls. So then you have to go into nvidia control panel and set the refresh rate you'd like to use for that individual game. Overall it feels like a stupid compromise for such a supposedly premium product. This gripe is probably the least credible of the bunch, and this was known about the monitor before I even bought it.

Overall, I feel this is a beta product with a premium price tag. Too many corners were cut, and no thought was given to what customers wanted. It was developed under the same policy that gave us the RTX series. Lackluster crap that has potential, but is far too expensive, and falls well short of what's required for any of its advertised features to be of any use.

So to sum it up, I would NOT recommend buying this or similar monitors until a few things are changed:

- Full 144Hz 10-bit support
- Micro LED FALD
- Gloss deep black layer with anti-reflective properties like on Samsung TVs

You don't have to listen to me. But you'll be sorely disappointed, considering the price. I'd say an OLED with 120Hz and VRR would be a better investment and a far better experience if you're careful with image burn in.
