More of a sidegrade than anything

Pros: -It has an HDMI port which is nice for hooking up a console or something
-Stand itself is well-built and allows it to be lowered further and raised higher than the PG278Q while maintaining the wide range for both roll and yaw.

Cons: -The quality of the panel itself is much worse than the previous PG278Q. The image suffers from severe color banding for darker shades which is an eyesore when playing games or watching movies, let alone viewing static images.
-The image will occasionally flicker and the frame rates stutter, and sometimes the display itself will black out for a couple seconds at a time repeatedly. Turning it off and back on seems to remedy this until my computer is restarted. My primary monitor is a PG278Q and has never had these issues.

Other Thoughts: This monitor isn't worth purchasing over other models. The older PG278Q, though lacking an HDMI port, has much better image quality overall. Given that this is supposed to be an improved version, it's extremely disappointing to see the drop in quality from the Q to the QR.

165Hz is a negligible improvement at best. It's not necessarily bad, but it doesn't really add anything of value.

In hindsight I should have gotten something much simpler, but I had originally intended for this to replace my older PG278Q as my primary display. After being disappointed with its image, it has been relegated to just a secondary.

If you're looking for a monitor with a high resolution and high refresh rate, as well as perfect response times and a beautiful image, then don't buy this. The PG278Q does it better, and I'm sure there are other displays that are also more worthy of your money.

Great monitor!

Pros: Great picture quality! No dead pixels!
Gsync is a real treat.
Works great paired with my RTX 2080. Hooked it up, powered it on and smiled!

Cons: I have no issues or cons, but I have read about this monitor having color banding issues and poor black levels. Make sure your refresh is set to 144hz, colors RGB and 8bpc in Nvidia control panel under change resolution. Mine defaulted to those settings, and I haven't had any of those issues.

Other Thoughts: In truth, I nearly returned this monitor unopened to newegg so I could buy an IPS panel after reading horror stories all over the internet about how bad TN panels are vs IPS or VA. I'm glad I decided to keep it. I would highly recommend this monitor to anyone. Maybe I should feel lucky I got this, I see many unhappy IPS panel owners due to light bleed and other issues. I will update my review if anything changes.

Great when it worked

Pros: Great picture
GSYNC is awesome
Small Bezel
Great refresh rate

Cons: Build quality
Picture degradation
Absolutely horrible customer service

Other Thoughts: This monitor was great when it was working but after a mere 2.5 years of use, the entire bottom left portion of my screen (20-25%) is now filled with dead pixels and the backlight is bleeding out of the edges of the bezel. ASUS will do nothing about it. I've had many ASUS monitors before and none have died as fast as this one. Would not recommend - for $800+ I expect a whole lot better. I will be purchasing from another manufacturer in the future and never buying another ASUS product again. Too bad too, since most of my build is ASUS.

Easy plug and play

Pros: I don't really use the 165hz as much at the moment, even though it is just a simple button to press on the monitor to activate it. I'm still breaking them in! Right out of the box they worked perfectly. I prayed to the dead pixel lords to spare me this one time and my prayers were answered! Sorry to the other customers that got caught in their wrath. R.I.P.

Cons: Could have done a buy 2 get one free deal ;)

Learned my lesson, never purchase ASUS products

Pros: Looks good, 2k low refresh rate etc.

Cons: - Terrible Customer Service
- Monitor has been recalled for G-Sync issues, black screens, split down the middle of the screen.
-Cannot provide Advanced RMA because they don't have item in stock. Don't offer model replacement. Won't work with you to resolve the issue. Don't care about the consumer. Won't respond back to your case and you'll have to call to know how issue was resolved.

Other Thoughts: Issue hasn't been resolved, ASUS has notoriously bad customer service but they have improved in the past 10 years. However they are way behind other industry leaders and they really shouldn't dive into the premium gamer device market if they're not willing to provide premium support to their customers. I learned my lesson, I hope you don't have to and can take my advice.
