ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice monitor, obviously. Bezel size is one of a kind and the picture is great for TN.

Cons: The quality control on this product is so bad. I am on my second Swift and I'm having the same problem. Dead pixel, dead center of the screen. The panel lasted for one single week after the RMA arrived and then a pixel started to die and is now fully dead. Second time and now that I'm out of the 30 days, Newegg will not return or refund my purchase or give me any sort of compensation for all the hassle I've had with this monitor.

Other Thoughts: I love this monitor and it'd be great, but the quality control is too bad to gamble with. I'd go with a PG279Q, but I don't care for the extra response time or the IPS panel for an extra $400. I'll be dropping Newegg as my primary PC component shop and to a better company with a better return policy. If my replacement was still defective after I returned it once, I should at least be able to exchange again or get a refund. I feel as though that ASUS should've tested each of these monitors before they sent them out. I know this RMA hassle isn't because of ASUS and they have a return policy for such things, but it'd be nice to not have to deal with this after having to RMA once already.

ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q Black 27
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Awesome monitor, fantastic response time, beautiful display with great color reproduction for TN panel. Large enough for a good "cinematic" experience, (minus the 24fps), but small enough not to be overwhelming and be able to play your games with sharp visuals up close.

Cons: Got the monitor, hooked it up. All cables in the box, just like I bought it brand new. As soon as I hooked it up, bright green dead pixel in the center of my screen. Tried all the stuck pixel fixes for hours, nothing seemed to help. Playing games, watching movies or TV is very difficult with how distracting the dot is. It sticks out like a moon in the middle of the night. Can't do anything on the monitor without it glowing and annoying the heck out of me.

Other Thoughts: Will most likely stay away from ASUS monitors from now on. I had heard horror stories about the quality control on the ROG Swift PG278Q on YouTube from multiple reputable sources and I should have listened. I thought I'd get lucky and I played with fire and got burned.

MSI Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 R9 270X GAMING 2G 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is basically a 7870 to 7950, if I'm thinking correctly. Tons of these reviews are complaining as cons that there is no crossfire bridge. AMD has stated that no crossfire bridge is needed to crossfire R9 series GPUs.

Cons: None. If you want to crossfire, pop a second card in and presto, no crossfire bridge needed.
