I know this is an older model and the new one has RGB but that’s no excuse to not make the ring on the base RGB. Who wants a red ring just sitting there. The base is pretty large. Yeah it makes it firm but again the newer design fixes this with its legs. Other then that it’s Ana amazing monitor. Screen gets super bright with vibrant colors. 165hz plus 1440p makes it a win at its price point.

The newer model with a higher refresh rate and a slightly lower price? Count me in.

Huge upgrade from my old 1080p 60 Hz TN panel. This screen is crisp, bright and smoother than I could've imagined. I'm not a fan of the bright red light in the base so I turned it off. Other than that it's an amazing monitor! Overclocks to 165 hz without an issue and that's what I'm currently running. Paired with a 1080 ti it runs things like a dream.

Here comes the beast that I regretted to buy at first but not after using it.
I was playing Assassin's Creed Origins on a classic 60Hz monitor and frames were really stuttering specially when you capture an eagle point and the scenery turns around the character. Anyway that screen make things super smoothe and it is a real pleasure to play with it.
So question is : yes it is worth the money

One was refurbished and was on for a great price. I hate the fact that it doesn't have RGB, but it has the specs I currently am aiming for. Will upgrade when 4k becomes more commonplace as the intro says. It fulfills my needs so I will have to make due until then.
Why 4 stars: Overall this is great, but if you're paying full price you better get EVERYTHING YOU WANT. In my case, paying close to almost half for a refirb was value enough to forgo RGB. This will end up being my secondary monitor once I move to 4k gaming as it becomes for affordable.

Had to replace it, faulty after just one week. Second monitor has dead pixels. Not what I expected from such an expensive monitor. Looking nice in games but overall not very satisfied.

This thing is a true dream for me as a gamer. 1440p resolution, 165hz refresh rate for butter smoothness in game play, 1ms response time and G-Sync for push those demanding titles at ultra settings.
This and other amazing feature that can be read about in the product description makes this a great component and a must have for a true PC enthusiast.
The refresh rate on this baby is the true high point for me, input lag is a thing of the past.

I couldn't be happier. I have seen very few monitors in early 2019 that are as good for gaming.

I bought this screen over a year ago in preparation for this build and it's beautiful. The colors are fantastic and everything looks silky smooth in 144hz. G-sync compatible too which is a near must these days.
Only complaint is a dead pixel that appeared off and on for a few months after I got the monitor That actually went away though and never came back so no complaints anymore.

I couldn't find the ASUS PG279Q with IPS screen in stock at local retailers and after I've read of all the screen bleeding issues with the IPS monitors from ASUS I wasn't very keen on spending extra for an IPS screen. I've also considered the more expensive Acer Predator XB271H before this purchase but it's high price and stocking issues pushed the ASUS PG278QR out in front.
Pros: Support g-sync with 144Hz at 1440p with a thin bezel. Like the fact that it uses a AU Optronics TN Film that seems to be better than the normal TN panels and has a 1ms G2G response time. Can tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjust. Viewing 3D movies is possible on this screen as a result of support for streoscopic 3D. Cables provided in the box for DisplayPort. Got it with the ASUS promotion with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Standard Edition.
Cons: The PG278Q does not offer any aspect ratio control options through the OSD menu at all and Picture in picture (PiP) and Picture By Picture (PbP) is not available in this model. There are also no integrated speakers or audio connections on this monitor.
