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.

27" Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 165Hz Nvidia G-Sync, IPS Monitor, 2560x1440 4ms, 1000:1, DP/HDMI/2x USB 3.0 Black Red is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great monitor if you've got the budget for it... After lots of deliberating, reading horror stories of BLB and excessive glow, I was thinking twice about ordering this panel. In the end I bought it, and I'm very glad I did. I have no BLB and absolutely minimal IPS glow. I'm pretty sure Asus upped their quality control because this is near to perfect as an IPS (AHVA) panel can get. It's very well made, feels solid and comes pre-assembled in a large box. Lots of adjustment, 80 degrees swivel either way, 25+ degrees tilt, 90 degrees rotation and 12cm of up/down adjustment. Ergonomically, it's excellent. Out of the box, it's very well calibrated, if a little bright. TFTCentral.co.uk have got some post-calibration settings to get you as close to image perfection as possible without expensive calibration hardware and it worked a treat. The settings also help to reduce IPS glow too, if you have a panel that suffers from it. Gaming on it with G-Sync is amazing. Buttery smooth, frame after frame at 144Hz (stock refresh rate) and you can overclock it to 165Hz but at the moment, I can't really notice any difference. Maybe when I'm 'used to it', I may do and I've got the option then. All in all, this panel is a lot of money but it's the highest quality. When I originally looked at these, they were £660 ish and I would have bought one, other than for the poor quality control back in the earlier production runs. Now they're nearly £800.... but, still a good investment in my opinion. If you're worrying about quality control on this model, don't. Asus have clearly sorted it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus ROG PG279Q Great monitor Bought one of these 2 weeks ago. This was a December 2016 model & its just Perfect, no colour bleeding, no massive amounts of Panel glow bearing it mind all IPS monitors do have some amount of IPS glow this is the nature of the technology. The IPS screen offers a significant improvement over the TN model in terms of image quality. The colours are just fantastic and Games like Witcher 3 are just amazing to see on this monitor. I came from a Benq XL2420t 120Hz Monitor. Gsync is great for playing all the games, Battlefield 4 will look ok, but its the Engine thats the issue with bf4 so it'll look the same on any monitor. Battlefield 1 looks fantastic. I would say that if your into competitive FPS then your better off getting a TN panel, if its just casual FPS play then you cannot beat this monitor. Would I buy this again properly not, but monitors are one of those components that last a long time. Pro: Great colours Thin bazel G-Sync & 144hz HDMI & Display port (thou more would have been nice) Cons: Cost Asus gaming features

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing monitor This is one of the best monitors I have ever been owning in my life, it works extremely well with G-Sync and the 165Hz makes it a very good experience. I had an Asus monitor that could go up to 144 Hz but as soon as I changed to this one I noticed the difference in fluidity of motion straight away. My monitor came in with virtually zero backlight bleed and the only way to "see" what backlight bleed the monitor had I had to use my Camera's sensitivity. It is fairly high priced but yet I really recommend it for those who like detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth Brilliant colour at nearly all angles. Best matched with 10 series nvdia gpu for g-sync capabilities. Crosshands helpful but limited with 4 options. Create your own one would be great. Worth buying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What more could you ask for... Beautiful display, using this with my 980ti. Came from a 144hz 1080p TN display and the difference in image quality an color is huge. I was hesitant to buy this monitor due to the issues people are having with back light bleed due to Asus's supposedly poor QC. My panel however has no backlight bleed or dead pixels and is working perfectly out of the box after a little calibration. It is expensive but if you want the best and are into pc gaming you can't go wrong. 10/10 for scan as usual and 10/10 for Asus in my case. Brilliant product I'm chuffed with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scan on top form I bought one of these from Currys it had really bad screen bleed, I sent it back and bought it from scan 10/10 on delivery. The monitor is outstanding g sync is cool loves my strix GTX 1070. There is very minimal ips glow on the model I got, baring in mind I saw a video of a guy in unboxing 20 of them to compare and mine is as good as the best one he had. Lovely bit of kit beats Lg 4K tv hands down if you have the money get involved. I have bought a lot of equipment from scan and would happily give them 10 out of 10 for customer service

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?
Asked by: HEO2
I believe that should be posible. But getting benifit of 165hrz you need g-sync and card fast enough to deliver it

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
I received one with a dead pixel. Only the one pixel. And scan replaced within 5 days. This second version has no dodgy pixels nor dodgy back light bleed. Chuffed to bits, top quality customer service. Recommend it.
