One of the best monitor

The best gaming monitor in my opinion. Unit has very minimal black light bleed. It would be better if it had an extra hdmi slot. I am receiving points in the ROG Elite Rewards loyalty program for my review.

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.

Expensive But the Best! :D

Best IPS Monitor Money can buy. Cool LED light up Base, Amazing picture, great for gaming even while playing an FPS. Definitely expensive but if you have the cash then this is the one to get.
