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.
Ask your questions. Share your answers.
Yes this includes a display port cable.
Are you able to take the monitor off it's default stand and put it on another? Such as mounting it on a ScanFX TS633E.
Yes this has as VESA mount.
in the manual (which was on DVD) are basic instructions about unscrewing the stand for wall mounting.
Mine is still on its stand but on looking it appears there are just a couple of screws to undo to release the stand.
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.
This is a very popular monitor and is widely considered to be the best gaming monitor out there. You can see a video review of the monitor here -
I don't think it is 3d, but to be fair, you're probably better waiting for the Rift or other VR headsets if you want that kind of experience.
The TN panel is 3D.
I've bought the IPS 1440p and trust me it is perfect.
Unless you have 2 980TI's for 4k, you'd be best with the 1440p to be closer to that 165hz refresh rate.
but gsync is the most amazing thing you have to see it to believe it really impressive. 10 out 10 would do again. Lol
Will Scan/Asus replace it for even 1 bad pixel or does there have to be a minimum amount?
you need a gtx 980 to see this product sing or wait until pascal to launch I am x have gtx 780 currently.
