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

Pros: -Came in original box, sealed with Asus tape (I would not have been able to guess that this was a refurbished product)
-No stuck/dead pixels
-Very clear display with good viewing angles for a TN panel
-Thin bezel
-G-Sync + 144hz make games look and feel phenomenal
-Build quality seems good
-The adjustable stand is very nice
-Looks awesome, but not too tacky like some other "gaming" products

Cons: -Slight brightness flicker during framedrops/very low fps events (i.e. loading screens) - I have found that this is just a characteristic of G-Sync, and not a reflection of the quality of the monitor itself

One thing I noticed: The bottom bezel gets fairly warm after steady use. I had not experienced this with other monitors, so I was a bit concerned at first. I later found out that it is normal, as that area houses a heatsink for the G-Sync module (which produces a decent amount of heat).

Other Thoughts: I was a bit wary of buying a refurbished version of such a high end monitor, but I have been nothing but impressed by it so far. I upgraded from a 60hz 21.5" Asus LCD monitor. Games obviously look much better on this monitor, but they also feel like they run much smoother as well.

I did purchase the extended 2 year warranty with it, so I will see if I ever need it.

Here are my specs if anybody is curious:

Mobo: MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition ATX LGA1150

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500gb
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1TB

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 and SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Affordable
-Looks cool
-Fancy BIOS
-No problems with it so far
-Nice heatsinks

Cons: -Placement of CPU power -- It is located right next to a big heatsink, which makes squeezing the clip to detach the power cable difficult (especially while its attached to the case).
