Hello All,

Anyone use or have Asus Rog Swift PG278Q? I'm thinking of upgrading to newer monitor and this one looks good but has very mixed reviews. Also looking at some newer Ultra Wide ones  by Asus but seems like lottery on them with so many issues. I really don't think 4k cause no graphics GPU's really can push to hit 4k yet. it seemed so easy last time I bought my panels everything was still 1920x1080 HD. So many choices these days lol.

I don't but, you have to remove the picture of the dogs in your sig. It's too tall to begin with, but with the other signature under it makes it even more obnoxious.

Done and deleted and I didn't realize having dog pic in signature was so obnoxious.

only because of the height of it. Otherwise, it was fine.

Stay away from the ROG Swift whatever you do. Get the comparable ACER!

Glad to see your surgery went well and you're feeling better too!!

is the Swift that bad? I will check out Acer model to see. The Predator seems like lottery with people based on forums and reviews for bad Back light Bleed issue and other QC issues. Thanks too yea I'm glad I still def have ways to go with recovery but doing a lot better!

Blacklight Bleed is so overrated, I never notice it on my X34 Predator while using it. The only time I even notice the bleed is when I turn off the computer and see the black screen as its powering down.

The X34 has been the best monitor I've ever purchased by far, no dead pixels, and a ridiculously gorgeous picture. I had several ROGs and they were all garbage. Acer makes a far superior panel imho.

glad to see you getting better mang.
i'm with twingunsh in regards to acer, they seem to be the ducks nuts atm, especially his x34. for something easier to drive graphics wise, i would recommend the Z35.

yea mang! i cannot do a monitor for $1200 just no way. I'm more of a baller on a budget it you get me. I'm checking that video out now and will look at the comments.

for some reason pcpartpicker doesn't list the cost for the z35 (on us and oz sites and being a window licker i don't check the prices) and i honestly thought it would be a lot cheaper than the z34. it turns out there is only $100 difference here in oz.

what are your current specs, does your vid card support g/free sync? if you're upgrading to 100+ hertz then i would go either the high end or the "bang for the buck" monitors ( 24/27 inch 1080/144hz range) and therefore skip the current mid-range stuff?

Yea those ones off your link are insane price!!! Even here in US they are like $1200. I'm really wanting the Gsync cause even with my current 24inch 144hz when you get dips which are gonna happen it definitely isn't smooth at all. This one looks good for price for 2560x1440 with Gsync off Newegg - @TwinGunsLLP  did you notice big difference for 2560x1440 from 1920x1080 and also didn't you say you noticed huge difference even with Gsync alone on new monitor beyond your Ultra 12k monitor ?
http://www.newegg.com/Pro ... p;SID=hawk-553786265

Then also locally they have if I keep 24inch and really just get it for Gsync its way affordable http://www.microcenter.co ... ing_Monitor_-_XB240H

oh and my card is Gsync capable as its EVGA GTX 980 SC

considering your specs it's not really an upgrade unless you go above 1080p and 24" in size, so that Acer (XB270HU Abprz 27" ) looks like a really good deal in your situation. as for the other monitor, i couldn't justify spending $350 just for g-sync. you could just o/c or lower the graphics as a stop go and wait it out a bit?*** because, as you've mentioned, we're at the transition period when in comes to monitor technologies and it's rather difficult and confusing atm, not to mention expensive.
*** my gtx760 still pumping out effortless 120fps @120hz on bf4 with medium settings, let me know if you need help getting stable fps.

Ok i pulled the trigger and ordered new monitor. I was so tired of researching forums and reviews its draining haha!!!! I ended up going for this one 

http://www.newegg.com/Pro ... Item=N82E16824260333

It has all the specs i wanted 2560x1440, 27 inches, 144hz and Gsync and it has stellar reviews across all sites and another bonus to me is has additional HDMI port as I have my Xbox one on my desk also as the Acer and Rog only had 1 display port. Once Pascal comes out I'm gonna finally upgrade CPU and GPU. 

That Acer one was strange as any results pull the IPS model not that TN as you notice the ABPRZ is for TN and IPS ends in BPRZ but same model number of XB27HU and any googling the TN is like non existent. Even on Acer's own site it isn't listed just the IPS one. Very strange.

Hey I don't know anything about that monitor but it looks very nice, especially for the price! Gsync has to be seen to understand what a great advancement it is. Even at max 100hz which is what my X34 does, it's far smoother than my old 144hz panel was. I honestly cannot imagine a smoother picture, I get no hiccups, no tearing, no nothing. The difference going to 1440p from 1080p is pretty substantial. If you have the horsepower video card wise, play around with the "res scaling" option in BF4. I've settled at 150% res scaling, which in theory looks superior to 4K.

I won't even consider a 4K monitor until somebody comes out with a widescreen (addicted to 3440x1440 now), with Gsync and minimum 100hz. I like what I have too much now to even consider unless the jump is huge, and I can't see that happening for another couple years. Hopefully the Pascal cards will get us there, but we still need the monitors.

Enjoy it, let us know how it goes!

Yea I never saw it till today and it was just released in OCT. 2015. I have a 980 SC lil OC on it and have heard nothing but how fucking good GSYNC is from threads I was reading. I can't wait to get it and I will def mess with the res scaling. I'm also definitely going to upgrade GPU too once Pascal releases so I can max this sucker cause i won't ever sli again after I had TRI SLI 680s just too many stuttering issues for me and single power card I like better. I'm sure your res at 3440x1440 its insanely gorgeous looking. Yea I've been on 1920x1080 for too long and wanted GSYNC monitor and better resolution. The ROG Swift how you said so many peeps have gone through so many its seems seriously plagued with issues from all searching I did. I didn't really like the gloss around the screen on the bezel of the Asus either for the one they have. I will post pics once I get it and I will need my wife to help me set it up cause i can't be lifting anything heavy doc said so I hope she is off the day its delivered to help me.

She arrived!! Just waiting for my wife to help my fragile handicap ass to hook it up and move old ones around. Bear in mind I had 3 Asus VG248QE 144hz panels in surround. Can't wait to get my GSync on now!

Hooked up and switched out old monitor in the middle to the top monitor above the Dell now. Damn thing is nice as hell and can tell huge difference on how pretty 2560x1440 compared to 1920x1080 is. I need to def mess with the colors and stuff but screen is impecable. No backlight bleed no dead pixels. Very nice construction for the monitor. Here is new pic with it in the middle and of course pics don't do jack to see how the monitor looks. Gonna play some games to see how GSync is too.

True true, a bit of a rally today. I mean none of us who got in "early" can complain though, it's still been a great investment. Unless you bought over $3500 you're not a bag holder. Time will tell, good luck all!

Should have sold coins a while ago. They had been talking about it for a while. And with N. Korea hacking specifically to steal bit coins, more fallout likely to come.
