Great monitor

Pros: Fast refresh
2k resolution
Minimal IPS glow (I mean very minimal, I was concerned before buying but am very happy. It doesn't really show up unless the screen is completely black)
Stand is just the right size and easy to assemble, the fully adjustable neck is also a big plus
Color reproduction is great
Games run very smoothly

Cons: USB ports are wedged in with the input ports, making them hard to reach
Comes with a mini display port to display port cable, the monitor does have a mini display port input
Built in speakers are very weak, but I did not buy the monitor for the speakers

Overall Review: The screen is very bright by default
I have not modified the brightness settings yet because the mode I usually use does not allow you to modify the brightness
A very tiny bug got behind the screen at night while I was using it, It went away later that night so I guess it isn't a big deal

Great monitor

Pros: Bright
Clear
Crispy

Movies and games look great. Colors are bright and clear. Great viewing angles. USB and headphone jacks are useful.
Still works, no dead pixels or any other issues.

Cons: Speakers could be better, but fine for the price, and nice to have (that headphone jack is great).

I was very disappointed in this monitor.

Pros: Refresh rate
Smooth, low lag
Good color

Cons: It had some IPS glow in the right side corners but nothing I couldn't live with.
Blurriness was the problem. I just could not adjust it for a clear image. Image was overly soft/blurry, or very stark with the available monitor settings. Eye strain was making it unusable.
I tried the recommended calibrations and monitor profiles, to no avail.
I felt the image on my current 1080p monitor was clearer.
Thankfully I was able to RMA it.

Blurry text, do not buy.

Pros: Everything that's great about the PG279Q, the gsync version of this monitor, applies to this one too except the sharpness. 1440p, 144hz, ips ect. The 35-90 freesync range can be changed to 57-144hz using cru.

Cons: The only huge con is the sharpness setting. In the racing mode, which is the recommended gaming mode and the one all reviews recommend you cannot adjust the sharpness setting. You can in other modes (scenery, cinema, fps, rts/rpg) but can't in racing mode. This wouldn't be a problem but its set too low and so the image is soft. I never noticed this till my brother brought his PG279Q to sit it side by side to do a racing mode comparison. If eye health is a concern for you the blue light filter only works with the racing mode preset.

Overall Review: Really disappointed in Asus. This wouldn't be a problem if you just allowed customers to adjust the sharpness setting, or release a firmware update to fix the sharpness.

Dont Buy This

Pros: looked nice while it lasted

Cons: Monitor has a yellow backlight glow just one month after the 3 year warranty ended

Overall meh, satisfied enough to buy a second, not much available in this market

Pros: 144hz 1440p IPS
Freesync ready (although range does not reach 144hz)
Aesthetic Design
Large screen size (27in)
Decent out-of-box color configuration
No hardware issues after 3 years use

Cons: Like other users, I experienced some QA issues. On one hand, I did not have any dead pixels or damaged bezel/monitor parts. However, I did find 3 tiny splotches underneath the panel that cannot be cleaned. They look like oil/fingerprint stains, similar to the tiny stains you might see on the face of the panel after a few months of regular use. Two of the splotches (~2mm) are near the center of the screen and are noticeable with a white background. The third splotch is in an upper corner and tinier (<1mm) than the other two, you really have to look to find it.

Knowing that other buyers have had much worse QA experiences I chose not to RMA my product and live with the defects. I'm not overly concerned about these sort of cosmetic defects, but I definitely understand how others could find this extremely annoying.

Overall Review: 3 YEAR UPDATE:
My monitor has held up pretty well. I put it through a lot, two long-distance moves, thousands of hours of on-time, but it's doin' great and still no dead pixels! It has developed a couple of tiny white "splotches" across the bottom of the screen, but I'm sure it's my fault for improper handling over the years. The 3 initial splotches it shipped with are still there but I've pretty much gotten used to them.
I am in the market to upgrade one of my monitors for a dual-screen 1440p setup and after 3 years of owning one MG279Q I am pretty surprised that not much has changed with regard to whats on the market. I'll probably buy another MG279Q, the price has come down a bit since I purchased mine in 2015 and it will be nice to finally have 2 of the same monitors.

Love it

Pros: 144hz
1440p
IPS

Cons: Freesync range kind of sucks so you have to pick - 144hz or 90hz

Overall Review: At 144hz I don't notice tearing so this is perfect for me. I got 1 because I wasn't sure about the 1440p hype and 1440p144hz was expensive. I now have 3 of these they're amazing.
