Pros: 1440p resolution
165 Hz refresh rate
Very nice and gamery looking
Very low input lag
Very nice and easy OSD menu navigation with joystick behind the panel.
Cons: Speakers are garbage. Who is going to pay 800 $ for a monitor and then listen to those speakers??!!!!!
I already returned two same monitors because of horrible back light bleed issues and dead pixels. Glad that the third one was good one.
Other Thoughts: Bottom line, this is the best gaming monitor to date if you get a good panel. I ordered two before this one. First one came and was September 2015 build. It has very bad back light bleed in all corners in addition to one dead pixel in the center, It was returned immediately. I waited for some time and bought another one from local store, this second one was made in December 2015, however out of the box has bad backlight bleed on the right lower corner and one pixel stuck in blue color again in the middle of the screen, so I returned that one as well. Ordered the third one and finally one that did not have major issues out of the box. This monitor is December 2015 build, no dead/stuck pixels. mild backlight bleed on right upper and lower corners but really mild and not bothersome like the previous ones (Looks like all PG279Q monitors will have some sort of backlight bleed no matter what). Overall I am glad with this monitor now and hope ASUS will focus more on OC issues in the future. When you pay 800$ for a monitor you expect to have a perfect overall monitor with no minor/major issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Very fast and powerful
- Absolutely silent when idling or doing light work.
- No issues with all games in 1440p in max settings, consistently getting frame rates of more than 60 frames per second even in high demanding games like far cry 4 and GTA 5. In BF4 I am getting average of ~ 90 FPS. Absolutely awesome.
- PrecisionX software is very nice and easy to use to overclock or change fan profile.
- Nice white lids that fit any build color scheme.
- Temps are nice, mine idles at ~48 degrees (fans off at this point) and max at ~ 80 with heavy long gaming sessions.
- Card is large but not very bulky. Fits nicely in my Corsair 750D.
- It is EVGA card and I am a fan of this brand.
Cons: The price is high but if you want the ultimate gaming experience then that should not be a con.
Other Thoughts: Will never buy graphic card other than EVGAREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice looking, Modular.
Cons: This PSU died suddenly in less than a week of regular usage. From what I read in reviews it sounds like this is happening frequently with this PSU.
Other Thoughts: I am a fan of corsair stuff. My last build has Corsair case (750D), Corsair PSU (HX750), Corsair SSD (neutron XT), Corsair CPU AIO liquid cooler (H90) , Corsair gaming keyboard and mouse (K95 and M65)...However the AX860 PSU was not up to my expectations, what a disappointment!
RMAed this one, thank you NewEgg for great customer support and fast, hassle-free RMA process.
I will be getting the EVGA 850W G2 instead. EVGA is my second favorite brand, however it may become the first now..
