    Newegg hasn't even sold any yet. That listing is a placeholder until they get stock. They have done it plenty of times before for future product releases. It's not nice to give out misinformation.

    Looks like a holding page. They don't even have product images up. This is similar to when the ROG Front Base came out, Newegg had the same thing until it was actually in stock. Note that you can't find that page through usual search on Newegg's site. It's a placeholder.

    My apologies .. you are correct, the link is not a PG278Q
    ..that was a PA279Q, with exactly the same specs minus the 1milsec. response time and whatever that is
    around the frame.
    Type in ROG Swift @ Google and you will see how the tragic error of my ways occurred as no model number was in the OP. I will flog myself severely .. almost to the point where I enjoy it.

    Thanks Kronvict ... I was only off by a few milsec's ...
    NavasC .. I do know where I am however, Welcome to ROG. .c.

    Sorry - didn't mean to come off so rude. But hardly the same specs "minus the response time". It completely lacks G-SYNC, and is an AH-IPS panel instead of TN, arguably two of the more important monitor specs. (Some may argue the IPS as a benefit, however)

    It doesn't show up on any regular searches yet, because it's not out yet.

    NavasC .. thank you for bringing that to my/our attention, I never want to give incorrect info .. well done bro.

    I didn't take it as exactly rude .. no probem at all.
    If I have neglected to say so before ... Welcome to ROG.

    So the question remains .. where, when ... is the best buy thing true.

    ((doesn't sound like a best buy move to me .. or Asus. BB is notorious for 'dumbing down' their
    models of whatever to reach their undercutting pricepoints .. this is a top shelf monitor ..
    no wiggle room for 'dumbing down' and then the one that was actually developed isn't released ? naaa
    I would be as surprised as the OP .. and NewEgg doesn't put placeholders up for product they
    are thinking about ordering .. if it is there I would think it is on it's way .. I could be wrong, did
    anybody see my meds ? ))

    Listen I have no reason to troll here and I understand I'm a new member so of course my post is going to be in question. I encourage everyone to always think for themselves.

    I literally called NCIX yesterday and I was right out told they will not be carrying it and its exclusive to BestBuy. If that means Canada only , I have no idea.. Pretty sure I dialed the US 800 #. is there BB in Canada? I have no idea but I wouldn't doubt it, as there HQ is in Minnesota which is a bordering state and pretty damn close.

    Company's do exclusive stuff all the time, they pay money to have the rights. Its called a marketing partnership, PC gaming and computers in general are so main stream these days and with the rise gamers spanning generations born from the last 40 years I wouldn't doubt it. The only thing bad about this is pricing for consumers. It creates no competition.

    This is the same thing when hardware manufactures get exclusive rights to promote their products on software. Such as EA/Nivida or exclusive maps for XBOX say for COD.

    I don't see a reason for them to lie as their basically turning away business. Call yourself and find out if you want.

    Maybe NCIX is out, maybe Newegg and Tiger Direct are in. Notice Neweggs place holder "May or may not be restock"

    I will say it again, and iw as even in shock to hear they sales guy say "BestBuy is the exclusive retailer.
