TTL Approved

The single ROG Swift PG279 is one of our favourite monitors on the market. It's probably the monitor that we'd recommend above all others, to the point that we wish everyone in our offices could have them. The colour reproduction is fantastic, the viewing angles are excellent, and no matter how hard we push it we don't see any ghosting. The addition of nVidias GSYNC technology only enhances the end user experience and you're left with a monitor which fills your vision with eye candy in both the literal and figurative senses of the word.

Where gaming is concerned, the Asus PG279Q is one of the two best 27-inch monitors you can currently buy. Along with the Acer Predator XB271HU, the PG279Q offers fantastic image quality, a wealth of features and superb gaming performance.

“Your graphics card is only as good as your monitor, and the ASUS PG279Q ROG Swift is very good indeed. Class-leading usability and an array of extra features are the cherries upon the delicious cake of outstanding picture quality. The 1440P resolution is the current sweet spot and the ROG Swift is the perfect foil for your graphics card, and thus wins our OC3D Enthusiast Grade Award.”

Good

Mit einem Straßenpreis von derzeit rund 850 € erhält man ein Gaming-Display, das auch abseits des Spielbetriebs eine gute Figur macht. Die Performance im Spielbetrieb ist anderen Displays erneut eine Nasenlänge voraus, was den Preis auf jeden Fall rechtfertigt. Als Gaming Monitor kann hier nur eine sehr gute Wertung herausspringen. Selbst die sehr schlechte Farbreinheit, von der man subjektiv nichts sieht und nur bei einem Grafik-Monitor ein K.o. Kriterium darstellt, hätte uns nicht dazu bewegt eine Abwertung vorzunehmen

If you have high demands on the technical quality of the gaming experience, the Asus ROG Swift PG279Q is a good bet. It is also a high bid. But the extra resolution, on the other hand, can be future-proofing you a year longer, ahead of the almost equally good screens with "only" Full HD resolution. The rich image quality, the high speed and the many good details make Asus a winner among the fast game screens.
