Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 27-inch 165Hz Gaming Monitor Review

 

We have the highly-anticipated ROG Swift PG279Q in the lab today. It's a 27-inch IPS-type panel with QHD resolution, G-Sync, ULMB and an unprecedented 165Hz max refresh rate.

Stable at 165Hz•G-Sync•Bright sharp picture•Saturated color•GamePlus•OSD joystick controller•Styling•Solid build quality

Significant light output reduction in ULMB mode•Calibration required for best image quality•Expensive

Asus' new addition to its ROG line isn't perfect but it certainly delivers on its promise. With a sharp and bright IPS panel, 165Hz and G-Sync, the PG279Q has everything an enthusiast could want. It doesn't come cheap but we suspect that buyer's...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Awesome! No issues!! ... well except price

 

- No Dead/Stuck pixels - Minimal if at any backlight bleeding (I'm honestly having trouble finding any at all on a pure black background) - I suspect the Refurb models are more closely inspected by ASUS than the "brand new" ones, so chances of getting...

- Poor Shipment packaging: -It came in the original box (great!) except that the tape was torn on two different sides of the box (that hold the box flaps down), so I'm surprised the display didn't fall out nor did it lose its cables. - Display was just...
