Asus ROG Swift PG279Q


The Asus ROG Swift PG279Q is, on paper, the ideal 27-inch gaming monitor. It has an IPS panel, so overall image quality should be superb, plus it can refresh at up to 165Hz and includes G-Sync technology too. Unless you're after a super-high-resolution...

Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 27-inch 165Hz Gaming Monitor Review


We have the highly-anticipated ROG Swift PG279Q in the lab today. It's a 27-inch IPS-type panel with QHD resolution, G-Sync, ULMB and an unprecedented 165Hz max refresh rate.

Stable at 165Hz•G-Sync•Bright sharp picture•Saturated color•GamePlus•OSD joystick controller•Styling•Solid build quality

Significant light output reduction in ULMB mode•Calibration required for best image quality•Expensive

Asus' new addition to its ROG line isn't perfect but it certainly delivers on its promise. With a sharp and bright IPS panel, 165Hz and G-Sync, the PG279Q has everything an enthusiast could want. It doesn't come cheap but we suspect that buyer's...

Great monitor, best i have owned - but let down by thunderbugs in the screen. Cheaper monitors prevent this. Shame.

BEST Monitor IPS


We really did like the PG279Q and we've now found our new reference gaming screen! The gaming performance was excellent, and second to none at the moment. Very fast response times for an IPS panel, 144Hz native refresh rate support, no lag, NVIDIA...
