ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -144hz
-G-Sync
-Colors look better than my original product?
-No more back-light bleeding.
-3 Year Warranty
-Nice size, amazing mount.

Something happened during the RMA process that completely reversed all negative thoughts I had on this screen. But how long will it last?

After I sent it in for repair (My old review will be in the "other section") this monitor suddenly is very amazing. The colors got much better, the G-sync is working flawlessly again. All the oddities my screen was being effected with are gone. It's not only like its brand new, but its better than when I first received it. Especially in the colors. Grey-scale uniformity seems rather good. The colors pop when previously they were dull. No more back light bleeding.

The 3-year warranty really came in handy here. I didn't have any issues with the RMA forms online and talking with tech support via e-mail. Fast responses. Were quick to take me in and repair it.

Cons: I'm afraid it's going to break again!

Repair sent it back disassembled in several pieces, so I had to put it back together. Wasn't too hard, but I did find it odd.

Shipping from Ohio to Cali was $75 dollars via UPS. Not covered by ASUS.

Other Thoughts: I went from 2 stars to 4, and was debating 3. I decided on 4 because the RMA crew I think performed a miracle and delivered me what this product should have been from the start. So kudos to them. Still, can't give 5 stars because I had to go through with this to begin with.

My previous review, "Was great while it was working" starting from cons
"Cons:
-Colors aren't great
-Back Light bleeding
-right 2/3rd of the screen developed an issue where text would appear smudged, not too noticeable in gaming, unless there was text.
- G Sync stopped working, would cause the screen to flicker.
- Died completely after a year of very light use.

Other Thoughts:
I barely used this monitor, and it still died. I sent out a support ticket, and from what I hear about ASUS support... well, let's hope I get lucky."

I did get lucky!

Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm CW-9060027-WW

4 out of 5 eggs Keeps cool and quiet... only one complaint 06/29/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm CW-9060027-WW

Pros: Keeps my 6700k nice and cool while its over clocked to 4.8 Ghz

Cons: The bracket for the 6700k, LGA 1151, was plastic... and in the directions they do not mention that when first mounting the back bracket that the bolts will not be tight. I thought this was a mistake as they wiggled and I nearly broke it when over tightening.

So when you install the LGA1151 bracket BE AWARE THAT IT WILL BE LOOSE AND WIGGLE. It will tighten when you finally put the whole thing together.

Other Thoughts: I did replace the original fans, so I cannot comment on how loud the originals are. Sorry.

You need a lot of room for this baby, I knew that going in, so I got a case that could handle it. I wouldn't consider this a con. Just be aware.
