Default ASUS PG279Q ROG Swift 27in 165Hz G-Sync IPS Gaming Monitor

PCCG received their stock on Friday and already shipping pre-orders....

I will upload pictures and first impression when it lands (and compare to my current TN Swift), but anyone that already have the panel please feel free to drop a line and share your thoughts on it.

Got mine from Scorptec today, September 2015 batch LCD, some horrible yellow tinting to the light on it. Been using IPS for 7 years so used to the back light bleed on them, this is the worst by far. Trying to play with settings to fix it but I think its faulty lighting, other than that no dead pixels and amazing at 165hz!

That is what worries me the most, I'm used to some B.L.B. but more and more people reporting the yellow tinting

The yellow tinting can be mostly removed by tweaking the RGB. As for the bleeding it's pretty bad in dark scenes. On the fence for returning, but likely to get another panel the same from what I have read too...

Have a read there, the colour temp is too warm by default. They run through the adjustments to make and even include a tweaked IEC profile to get the colour temp close to neutral.

Got mine up and running last night, had both new and old switft next to each other. IPS has slightly better colors (but not a huge difference) and is slightly more glossy finish.

They both look nearly identical, only noticeable difference being the backlit ROG logo on the new model and few more options in Menu due to additional HDMI + speakers and overclocking to 165Hz

Best of all, no dead pixels and nearly no Back light bleeding very happy

I was going to take few pictures and post here, but my bloody HTC One M8 camera is turning any picture in a pink-fested ugly blurry picture and don't have any proper camera at the moment

What settings such as brightness are you using?

Ah, I'm using the following - though the backlight is yellow when up high its pretty good when gaming etc. Having it under 30 helps with the bleed a lot.

Brightness: 26
Contrast: 50
R:93
G:91
B:100

Out of the 3 I don't notice the blb unless I've got the screensaver running as I use ribbons and that leaves a black screen most of the time.

Then out of the 3 one has significant corner bleed but if it's under normal use I don't notice it as that one which has the worst blb is the middle screen and one I use most.
