ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The build quality is top-notch. This monitor is very well constructed and looks fantastic. I wasn't sure I'd be a fan of the styling, but it really looks good, especially with that thin bezel. The specs are unmatched - it is the only G-Sync monitor at 1440p, and its the only 144hz monitor above 1080p that I know of.

It worked right away, and nvidia's drivers immediately detected and enabled G-Sync. The display controls are by far the easiest and most intuitive I have ever used, and calibrating it to my liking was a breeze. Zero dead pixels, and minimal backlight bleed. The color is not quite as diverse and doesn't pop like it did on my IPS panel, but it is really good for a TN.

This thing is so smooth. Even moving windows around on the desktop is noticeably crisp and smooth. G-Sync really is a thing of beauty. It is something that you have to experience yourself to realize what you've been missing.

The packaging was very solid, and I love the fact that it is ready to go right out of the box, no assembly required.

Cons: I'll mention here that when frames dip low enough, 30ish or less, it will still stutter with G-Sync.

Other Thoughts: I've been searching for a monitor for about a year, and after going through 3 different screens, I finally found one that satisfies. This is the best gaming monitor out there, hands down.

You will definitely need a top of the line video card to push 1440p and still get good frames on max settings in most of today's games. I have a 780ti, and while it performs great overall, there are a few titles that I can't quite max out and get >60 fps consistently.

I recommend you get monitor the driver from the product page on Asus's website. The turbo button did not actively change the refresh rate with the generic Windows 7 monitor driver.

The fact that so many reviews mention the cost as a con is laughable. If you bought it, then apparently the price wasn't too high. There is a strong demand for this monitor and a very limited supply. They could easily have charged more and still be sold out. If you buy it and then decide the value of the benefits are not worth what you paid, the current demand provides plenty of options to recoup...

Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

3 out of 5 eggs Not as Good as Expected 10/06/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Wireless with good range. Good frequency response. Virtual surround works pretty well. Mic sounds good.

Cons: I found them rather uncomfortable. The ear cups are smaller than I expected, and my pretty average sized ears were a tight fit. The wireless signal causes a hissing noise. It is barely audible when there isn't any sound playing. It becomes much louder whenever any sound is being played and for a few seconds after the sound stops. This hissing is a noticeable in the background of whatever you're trying to listen too, and it is a real nuisance.

Other Thoughts: I already own the Vengeance 1500 v2 headset, which, spec-wise, is the same thing only wired. I wanted a wireless headset, so the 2100 seemed like a no-brainer. However, the earcups are smaller on the 2100, the batteries make it noticeably heavier, and in general its not as comfortable. Add in the hissing noise specific to the wireless version, and the 2100 is significantly worse than its wired sibling.
