This review is from: ASUS MG279Q Black 27" 144 Hz 4ms (GTG) WQHD Widescreen 2560 x 1440 LED IPS Panel, Adaptive-Sync (Free-Sync), Ergonomic Professional high performance Monitor, Pivot & High Adjustable
Pros: -144hz- This is a game changer. 144hz is awesome, and the reason I upgraded. BF4/CSGO look great with the high frames. I honestly feel that it has improved my game.
-Build Quality- Heavy and high quality build . The base is nice and wide. Its stable and doesn't allow random movement of the screen when typing or moving your desk.
-IPS- Colors look great. The change from a TN panel wasn't as drastic as I was expecting, but I honestly can't complain. Blacks are definitely more ink like.
-1440p- Really great resolution. I was worried about text being too small, but everything looks great. I run a 290x and it handles 1440p with no problem. Gotta turn down some AA once in a while though.
-Freesync- I wasn't looking for a freesync monitor, but I'm glad I have the option if I decide to use it. It definitely works, but it only has a range from 35hz to 90hz. Not sure why they would limit it like that. I honestly try to keep the frames as close to 144 as I can though. This will come in handy when the old 290x starts chuggin' and my frames stay in that range I suppose.
-27" screen- 1440p + 27 inch screen = Win
-UI- I love ASUS's UI and the placement of the monitor buttons. The small red joystick makes it easy to move around and select what you want. Don't see how it could get better than this.
Cons: -Price. This thing is just too dang expensive. I waited for it to drop in price, but still. You do get what you pay for though.
-Freesync range- I seriously don't understand why they would limit the top range of freesync. Gsync goes all the way to 144hz. Why can't Freesync? All Freesync monitors have this range problem though, so its not just against this monitor.
Other Thoughts: I know a lot of people have had some QA issues with this panel. I'll be honest, I was hesitant because of this. Fortunately, mine came perfect. No dead pixels. Very slight IPS glow in the lower right corner that I can never see unless there are no lights on in the house. This screen is amazing and I'm very happy with it. Glad I took the chance and got this thing.READ FULL REVIEW
