    Not Really Improved from the PG279Q . . . Another Panel Lottery, December 15, 2018

    I bought this after having gone through 4 PG279Q models, and it’s already on its way back. One may wonder why still even bother with Asus at this point? Well, it’s pretty much for the same reason everyone else does; the allure of a monitor with a refresh rate of 165 Hz, a resolution of 2560×1440, an IPS panel, and G-Sync. The monitor I received had light bleed similar to the fourth and last PG279Q I purchased. It’s always the worse in the top right corner, followed by the bottom right corner, with a very minimal amount in the bottom left corner and the least amount in the top left corner.

    It all has to do with where the bezels place pressure on the screen. One can press on certain points of the bezel and watch the bleed fade resulting in a more even spread of that cool blue/white sheen, known as IPS glow, that we’ve all come to know and love on IPS-type displays. Upon releasing pressure, the bleed creeps back in making the root of the problem quite evident. To top it all off, there was some orange tinting present in the upper left quadrant of the screen. This irked me to no end when I was in file explorer, word processors, or anything that had a white background. My sample not only did a poor job of displaying dark content but failed to deliver with lighter content as well.

    I have a Dell U2410 that I keep having to take back out because so far, at least for me, nothing has been able to beat it as far as color reproduction and overall panel quality go (although even these were known to have their own set of problems). I’ve tried to cut Asus some slack in that I understand that these are special panels by AU Optronics that support a technology that took some time to achieve, however, the problem lies not in the panel but rather the design of the bezels and their inability to apply even pressure where needed. I can’t help but think about how my Dell from 2010 has no bleed at all while being a mere three inches smaller. I can only hope that LG gets it right with their LM270WQA panel later on this year. I highly advise staying away from this monitor because the story is a familiar one.

    This is the newer model to the old model (pg279q) which you had to play the lottery to find a good one. The pg279qz Panel is perfect. No dead pixels. No ips glow. Amazing colors and they were spot on. Gsync is awesome. The specs are the same as the older model but the panel is much nicer quality.

    I did upload pictures, but it looks way better in person.

    I ordered this on December 9th. I’ve been waiting for the sale price of the PG279Q, but the model was just too expensive for me, and complaints about the BLB (backlight bleeding). Checking Amazon again, I saw this, (PG279QZ), Never seen this one before, but it was showing $599, “what’s this model?” I did my research and it is the IPS panel with Gsync, 2560×1440, 144hz and can be overclocked to 165hz in the panel option (easy to use), which is exactly what I needed! It’s also official on the ASUS website so not a knockoff. The truth is, there is still BLB, but it’s very minimal compared to the previous PG279Q model. All IPS panels have a slight bleed, which is normal. But I spent some time messing with the color settings and it looks beautiful. NOTE: the stock settings has the brightness at 100% so make sure to lower it and play the color settings and you’ll be happy.

    Anyway, the monitor is amazing! I came from a 1920x1080p 60hz monitor and didn’t think much of it being different to 2560×1440, but HELL YEAH IT IS! (Wanted to take advantage of my 1070 Ti and i7-8700k) Especially for gaming. Nothing seems blurry anymore and I noticed a HUGE the difference with the reticle/cursor/gameplay picture moving very smooth when I aim fast. YOU WILL notice the difference – gaming and just normal daily PC use. Colors are beautiful and vibrant. The quality of the build and stand itself is supurb, you can tell it’s not cheap and worth the money, heavy and sturdy. I love the fact that you the ROG logo and stand ring lights up red. Keep in mind you can turn this off in the physical panel settings.

    Overall guys, I know most of you are worried about the BLB, don’t be. It’s honestly not bad compared to the PG279Q. Tweak the color settings a bit and you’ll be fine. I wouldn’t say this is a huge upgrade from the previous model, but if you don’t already have an IPS/Gsync monitor yet and have been contemplating on purchasing one like me, BUY IT. It’s worth the money if you’re a PC gamer, especially at $599! Get it before it goes on high demand and the price will increase. Thanks for reading.
