ASUS PG279Q overview

  • 1Description

With a 165 Hz refresh rate and built-in NVIDIA G-Sync technology, the ROG Swift PG279Q 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Gaming Monitor from ASUS provides enhanced display responsiveness for fast moving videos and games. In addition to gaming, this ASUS monitor features a 2560 x 1440 WQHD display offering four times the resolution of 720p. You can also take advantage of 100% coverage of the sRGB color space for accurate color representation, and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio for true bright and dark color representation.

Incorporated in this ASUS monitor are a variety of features designed to further enhance one's experience. You can take advantage of four color temperature modes, three GamePlus modes, and six GameVisual modes. Each of these modes makes it easy to adjust the display to accommodate the content being viewed. Additionally, the low blue light and flicker-free features help to ease the strain placed on the eyes when viewing the display for extended periods of time.

Setup and configuration of the PG279Q monitor is simple as it comes equipped with both HDMI and DisplayPort connectors. Earphones can be plugged into the 3.5 mm headphone jack and USB compatible peripherals such as a mouse and keyboard can be plugged into the USB 3.0 ports. Once configured, the IPS panel offers 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angels making it easy to see the screen from nearly any angle.

IPS Technology
The ROG Swift PG279Q gaming monitor gives you enhanced images with improved colors thanks to 100% sRGB color gamut and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide 178-degree viewing angles ensure minimal distortion and color shift even when you're viewing from extreme positions.
Enhanced Refresh Rate
The ROG Swift PG279Q gaming monitor's 165 Hz refresh rate helps to eliminate lag and motion blur to give you the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy, and sports titles.

You can even select your preferred refresh rate with a turbo key to toggle refresh rates on the fly without needing to access the graphics driver control panel. Select from 60, 120, or 165 Hz refresh rates while in the middle of a game to match the different frame rates of different games to maintain smoothness. Lessen the load on your GPU and CPU by setting a cap on the Hz for different games.
NVIDIA G-Sync Technology
The ROG Swift PG279Q incorporates NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology to deliver a smooth and fast gaming experience. G-SYNC synchronizes the monitor's refresh rate to the GPU in your GeForce GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. This lets you enjoy seamlessly-smooth and lag-free gameplay when playing the latest fast-paced first-person shooters, sports, and action-adventure titles.
ASUS GamePlus Technology
The ROG Swift PG279Q gaming monitor features the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey for in-game enhancements so you get more out of your game. The crosshair overlay gives you four different crosshair options to suit the game you're playing. There's also an onscreen timer you can position on the left of the display so you can keep track of the elapsed gaming time; while the FPS (frames per second) counter lets you know how smooth the game is running.
GameVisual Technology
ASUS GameVisual Technology has six pre-set display modes to optimize visuals for different types of content. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the on-screen display (OSD) settings menu.
Narrow Bezel
The slim profile and super-narrow 6mm bezel makes it ideal for multi-display setups so your eyes move swiftly from one monitor to another. It can also be VESA wall-mounted.
Versatile Connectivity
The ROG Swift PG279Q has a wide selection of connectivity options for WQHD input including DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI ports. It also has two USB 3.0 ports to quick-charge your mobile devices while gaming.
Low Blue Light Technology
The ROG Swift PG279Q also comes with the ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light filters to protect you from harmful blue light. You can easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen through a handy five-way joystick that makes it easy to jump through the on-screen display (OSD) menus to fulfill your different scenarios.
Flicker-Free Technology
Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimizes instances of eyestrain and other damaging effects when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.
The ROG Swift PG279Q is specially designed for marathon gaming sessions. It has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position whether you're on the couch or sitting on your bed.

    ASUS PG279Q reviews

    ROG Swift PG279Q 27" Widescreen LED Backlit LCD Gaming Monitor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gaming monitor (for me). Perfect for a high end gaming PC with nVidia GPU. No issues at 165 Hz. I am using a GTX 1080. I also have it paired with a Korean 2560x1440 IPS as a secondary monitor running at 82.5 Hz refresh rate. I haven't noticed any problems with g-sync using this setup. My monitor has no dead pixels, but does have some back-light bleed. Fortunately it only noticeable on a black image (i.e. some loading screens). This is really the only flaw and while it is noticeable, for me it doesn't warrant lowering my rating of 5 stars (I might put it at 4.5/5, or 9/10). I'm happy and I'm sure this will suit me just fine for a few years until 144+ Hz at 4k is more reasonably attainable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor My first of this kind! Colors are outstanding. Gsync happened automatically with the DisplayPort cable. My GTX1080 works great with this monitor! I haven't seen any dead pixels anywhere! The only back light bleed I see is when turning it off and it goes to a black screen. The on screen menu is very helpful. When you know what your looking for it comes easy. I love how Doom looks on this monitor!! I don't have buyers remorse here with this product! It really does what it says it will! I've been doing this for awhile! Since the use of MFM drives- ya remember those? Will I've been pounding keys since. Thanks for a wonderful product! Jeff, Colorado

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Gaming Monitor Great size and resolution for modern games. Not as much graphics HP is required for 1440p when compared to 4K. I do have a little IPS glow in the lower right that was bothering me at first. It's only really visible with dark or black backgrounds, and not noticeable when working or playing. Zero back-light bleed. One stuck pixel that's only visible on a black background. Under normal usage it's unnoticeable. The anti-glare coating does its job, the bezels are small, the stand is nearly perfect, and the menus are very easy to navigate. On paper it's the perfect gaming monitor for 2016. In person its a quality display. I've read about the quality control issues, but took a chance and I'm happy to have done so. Docked 1 star for 1 pixel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far the Very Best I'm very pleased with the performance of these LCD panels. I got them in preparation for the arrival of NVIDIA's GTX 1080 series. I'm using 3 of these in NVIDIA surround and powered by a custom liquid cooled X79 system with 3 GTX Titans in 3-way SLI. So far, racing games work well with the high refresh rates of 120 and 144hz. The difference between these panels and my previous triple Dell U3014s is night and day. Although smaller in total screen area than the 30 inch Dells, the very high refresh rates of >144hz really make it easy on the eyes. Truly, you have to experience 144hz, Gsync surround gaming to understand what PC gaming is all about. I have both a 34 inch curved display and a 40 inch 4K panel, running @ 60hz.. None of these two screen platforms compare to a fully realized 144hz surround experience..with Gsync. BF3 plays very very well with my current hardware, as well as the Batman, Max Payne and Bioshock series. You'll definitely need the Pascal cards to play the rest of the newer triple AAA titles in Gsync surround. Overall, I'm very pleased with my transition to these ROG IPS panels. If you have the dough, just buy 3 of them...You'll see what I mean. Oh, and yes, these IPS panels do come free with annoying backlight bleed especially in the lower areas of the screen..but still ok enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Condition Delivery I have to applaud B&H on a perfect delivery and perfect monitor. I had my guys from IT set it up and check for dead pixels and black light bleeding and there was ZERO (0) dead pixels. I was a little worried when it took five days to arrive and that it shipped from New York to Baltimore before taking two days to come here but i was not disappointed and the wait was well worth it. I will definitely be buying more products from B&H. As far as the monitor itself,lives up to the hype 165 hz is lightning fast, G-Sync is a God send, I will never be able to look at another monitor again.
    Date published: 2016-03-24
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The backlight bleeding is real! Real bad.. I just purchased the 3rd PG279Q and while everything works as intended, there's still that annoying backlight bleed covering a fourth of the screen!! It's so unnerving when one has to spend this much time after spending this much money to get what you paid for in the first place !! I'll be returning this one as well and picking up my next ticket in the lottery..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming monitor Great decision on my part to buy this Monitor. I upgraded from a 24" TN panel monitor to this 27" IPS M onitor with ( G Sync ) at 144Hz that can be overcooked to 165Hz. The 27" is perfect for me. Not to small and not to big. It's very well built and looks great. The stand supports the monitor with no problem. I love it. The display function buttons along with the Joystick makes navigating the Settings very easy. Best I've seen on the market. The awesome colors displayed by this IPS panel blows away my old TN panel. If your considering a 27" IPS Gaming monitor with high refresh rates you can't go wrong with this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye-Opening Difference I have 2 pretty decent monitors and decided I wanted to get this bad boy to go with my Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti graphics card to see what it was capable of. With all of the features available on this monitor, my games run like butter. I have literally never had this level of smoothness in my gaming experiences. It's absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth the money you'll spend on it. The shipping was fast and it came in good working order. If you're considering getting a new monitor and you're looking at 4k, ditch 4k for everything this thing offers. You won't be disappointed.
