About the Product
Samsung QLED delivers purer, brighter, and more lifelike colours — especially reds and greens — than conventional monitors. And Samsung’s new Metal QD technology ensures longer lasting, more natural colours.
On a battlefield of gaming monitors, the Republic of Gamers stands strong. Even while surrounded by 144Hz pretenders to the throne, only one monitor can be utterly victorious. All hail the King of Gaming Monitors, the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 165Hz G-SYNC Gaming Display.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming Monitor
  • 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..

What customers say about "Display"
 
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming Monitor
  • 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.

What customers say about "Features"
 
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming Monitor
  • 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.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
 
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q Gaming Monitor
  • 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.
