Current King of Kings

This monitor is the best upgrade I have made for my gaming rig in years! There is nothing quite like it at this time and it will be a long hard climb before this becomes obsolete I highly recommend the PG279Q paired with G-Sync it is totally immersive gamming and super smooth all around You will not regret this purchase !

ASUS ROG SWIFT 27" WQHD 165Hz 4ms GTG IPS LED G-SYNC Gaming Monitor (PG279Q) - Black

Was concerned about IPS glow as indicated by other reviewers but this monitor has only a very small amount on the lower right corner and is only noticeable in a pitch black room with a black screen. Under normal conditions, the glow is non existent and has absolutely no effect on game play or basic use. G-SYNC with GTX 970 along with the 144Hz makes for ultra smooth FPS game play. Only down side (so far) is the fact this monitor is pricey even with a BB price match. If you have the cash, I would recommend this monitor.

Great, but still has backlight bleed

4 out of 5. features and performance are a 5, but still suffers bleeding issue. Purchased end of Dec 2016.

Relatively big investment but worth

I just got this monitor for Christmas. Delivered 4 days early so good job on that. The product is amazing so far. I mainly use it to play fps games like pverwatch and cod etc. long story short, I don't think I'll ever going to be able to go back to 60hz. It's a whole new world of competitive gameplay this monitor provide. The sharp image makes me feel I'm playing a whole new game. It is expensive but if you are looking to stay competitive in fps games this is definitely gonna help.
