linus review for asus pg279q

tftcentral review for asus pg279q

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/...ift_pg279q.htm
I'm waiting for Linus to review the XB271HU, but then Linus always says this is the best monitor till the next one comes, he says that again.

The good thing about the new gen monitors is that G-Sync comes with Displayport as well as a HDMI port. Can plug in a game console and switch between.

Do note that both panel now are still produced from AUO and alot of QC has been raised with regards to panels produced from them... Its not directly ASUS or ACER fault tbh.



However the latest update I understand was a burn-in time is needed to reduced the BLB if u experience one when u purchase it...

Just saw Asus ROG Swift PG279Q price for Sitex.

Launch Price: $1369 w/ Free HDMI Cable and Free World of Warship in-game item

I hope the Acer one is much cheaper.

Asus always consider they're "Premium Brand" on par with Apple
