Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works?

HDTV 720/1080
Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" ASUS PG279Q ROG Swift 165Hz Nvidia G-Sync 2K, IPS Monitor, 2560x1440 4ms, 1000:1, DP/HDMI/2x USB 3.0 Black Red is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great Did my research, knew what I wanted and what I was willing to pay, chose this monitor. Have figured how how to use it and: it';s great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined by defects and faults and terrible support A functionally excellent monitor, except I'm yet to find one that is better than flawed after having 5! The first had light bleed in bottom corners, but I put up with it until an insect got under the screen. £700 for bad seals? That RMA resulted in a refurbished unit which also had light bleed and, guess, what? Another insect got in. The next RMA resulted in a refurbished unit which had 3 damaged/burned out spots and 2 dead pixels. The next RMA resulted in another refurb with terrible image retention. The next RMA doesn't even accept a signal from DP or HDMI. I'm waiting on response from Asus now, but I assume I will simply get sent another defective refurb that they hope I will accept. Too late now to get a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from IPS glow sucks Have IPS glow in top right corner which sucks, for this kind of money the QC is terrible, should have listened to the general advice to avoid these monitors. Probably the worst purchase I have ever made considering the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SO SMOOTH!! I have been considering buying a high refresh rate g-sync 2560 x 1440 monitor for a while now. I previously had a LGUC98 34 inch Ultra Wide monitor which was unbelievably good for immersion, but at just 60hz, not the pinnacle of online competitive gaming. This screen feels expensive, the build, the design, the internal menu system, the fantastic stand, you feel like you are buying a £700 monitor. A special mention has to go the stand, you can literally have the monitor in every position you could possibly want to (including vertically). But what really matters? The experience. The gaming experience on this thing is second to none. The 144hz refresh rate (can be over clocked to 165hz) along with g-sync capabilities for all you Ge Force GPU owners makes this screen the best of the best. This thing is smooth and I mean smooth. Screen tearing? Thing of the past. I have played Battlefield 1, Overwatch, Fortnite, Prey , Counter Strike Global Offensive on this screen and they all look and feel amazing. With a 2560 x 1440 resolution, the games look super sharp, as you'd expect. However, its the 144hz that take the experience to the next level. The response time and the clarity when you spin 180 degrees and start shooting someone is something that truly never becomes tiresome. Its always going to be a big commitment to spend £700 on a gaming monitor. I know I contemplated it for weeks. My advice? Do it. You'll never go back. My ONLY negative in relation to this screen is the back light bleed, particularly in the bottom right corner. In all fairness, I can only notice it when on a black/ dark loading screen or playing a particularly low light map on a game. However, for £700, you'd expect that to have been eliminated. Its definitely not noticeable enough to ruin your immersion, but it can be a bit annoying at times. Overall, I thoroughly endorse this monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are a gamer, this monitor it`s a must! First I was afraid about those blb and dead pixels everyone was talking about, but seems that Asus improved their QC by a lot since this monitor came on the market. No blb , no dead pixels , nothing :) I`m very happy, hugeeee difference between my old Acer 120hz tn panel and this one, colors are great, image quality is great out of the box and to navigate the menu is a joy with that joystick. It`s expensive? YES, but I don`t regret a penny spend on it.

Is this monitor 3D? Is it worth the extra cost?

Is it 3D? The other, cheaper ASUS ROG model seems to be. This one isn't marked as having it, however. I noticed this one is IPS as well, unlike the other ASUS ROG model on Scan. Is it worth the £200 extra? The 4K one seems to be the same price, also. (Although, it is only 60Hz and 4ms.) I definitely want a G-Sync monitor and I have heard the ASUS ROG swift series is up there with the best. Its just a quest of which one to go with.
Asked by: PcGamingRig
It is not 3D. IPS really adds more depth to color. Strongly recommend it. 4K would not really be noticeable with this size of the screen. But also harder to achieve a constant 60 fps, let alone abusing the 144 Hz. I made the choice of spending the extra cash for IPS after looking at reviews on youtube. If your spending x amount of cash on monitor, might as well chip in a little more for more vibrant graphics. After just getting off tomb raider on very high settings, I am really happy I went with this monitor.

Display Port

I'm interested to buy this monitor but am unsure if my Geforce gtx 690 graphics card which has a micro display port connector, can a micro dp to dp adapter be used?

I would avoid this monitor, these panels have terrible QC, you have to be very lucky to get a decent one.

Is there a dead/stuck pixel policy for this monitor?

If there's a bad pixel on this monitor, will Scan replace it, or do I need to contact Asus? Will Scan/Asus replace it for even 1 bad pixel or does there have to be a minimum amount?
Asked by: pizza
Even if there's a policy in place, I wouldn't trust Asus support at all. I've had terrible replacement units.
