Product Comparison: Samsung C27HG70 vs ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q
- FPS feels supremely different with the big peripheral focus, and the multi-tasking for everyday use it helpful.
- Very nice monitor overall. Clear picture, and 21:9 in this package is just really neat.
- 165 Hz is amazing for gaming, especially fast paced games such as shooters, RTS, and racing games.
- Ultra Low Motion Blur has to be seen to believed. If you can support the consistent frame rates, it really brings gaming worlds alive.
- 100hz is amazing, but 144hz is better for FPS.. but seriously don't buy this if you're only gunna play shooters..
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q
- Blacks are as black as a non HDR can be and the colors are vibrant.
- No light bleed or other screen related issues, outside of the entire monitor refusing to run its advertised specs
- I play my games in a dark room, but usually have the brightness pretty low to not hurt my eyes. I am currently running this monitor at 25% brightness and it is beautiful.
- The brightness retention is really good. My old 27" Asus' screen becomes a lot darker when you look at the monitor slightly from above and a lot brighter when looking from below.
- It took me hours to get the color and contrast properly calibrated; it was a major pain, however the on-screen display controls employing their unique throttle control made perfect adjustment possible.
- Curve is subtle but surprisingly comfortable and not at all disorienting.
- The controls on the monitor are by far the best in the industry.
- The monitor's build quality and features are top-notch; you can really tell that Asus pulled out all the stops on technology and features.
- The stand is gaudy. I am not a fan of the light, which you can turn off in the menu. The stand is ugly. The predator x34 stand has a nicer not so in your face stand.
- The edge where the panel meets the bezel combined with the glass has a slight magnifying effect.
- I LOVE the colors, the refresh rate, the brightness, and the variety of ports for additional USB devices.
- Works as advertised, didn't come with a display port cable kind of a disappointment. Especially since to run 1440p at 144hz you need a display port cable, it does come with HDMI.
- The power does not come from the standard cable, but instead has an external power brick. I feel that the cables are a bit short, and you then have to store the brick somewhere on your desk.
- The usb ports are on the back panel and covered. a real pain to get at quickly.
- 144Hz/165Hz are only available with Displayport. Make sure that you get one that is DisplayPort 1.2 with HBR (High Bit Rate) 2 support.
