Asus ROG Swift PG279Q


The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q is, on paper, the ideal 27-inch gaming monitor. It has an IPS panel, so overall image quality should be superb, plus it can refresh at up to 165Hz and includes G-Sync technology too. Unless you're after a super-high-resolution...

Asus ROG Swift PG279Q review


The ROG Swift PG279Q lives up to its flagship aspirations, and sets a new standard for gaming monitors.

Asus has a mission to make the Republic of Gamers product line world-class in every category, and the ROG Swift PG279Q spares nothing in search of that effort. It offers not just excellent image quality, but also a high refresh rate, frame...

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...

ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Monitor Review - NVIDIA G-Sync 165Hz Bliss


ASUS refreshes its incredible ROG Swift display with the PG279Q, cranking the refresh rate to 165Hz. This is the gaming monitor you want.

Asus ROG PG279Q


G sync is awesome, image looks fantastic.

Quality control on these monitors is dreadful, I have had excessive back-light bleed and dead pixels. Currently waiting for return my 3rd one.

Amazing picture and fast frequency. Even the older games look stunning.

A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.

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...

Plagued with strange issues... Will update review once sorted.


I was thinking about RMAing this panel but I wanted to get some feedback form the community before I did so to exhaust all options before the hassles of a return. I want to love this panel, the picture is fantastic, no dead pixels very little issues...

Panel and build quality from a material and tactile standpoint. Image quality is amazing when it works.

Not plug and play leading me to think my panel is defective Nothing in the box but a single sheet of paper that folds out showing you how to install it, and one disc with outdated drivers.
