  • I think I'd give the edge to the Dell if you can get it for a similar price. Its 165hz mode is native, not OC'd, and has DP 1.4, plus some USB ports. The USB ports are convenient for me, though I only need 1 or 2.

    The annoying thing about both monitors is that the controls are on the back instead of the bottom or front. This makes it hard to turn the monitor on if you have a multi monitor setup. The only way to reach to it is underneath and blindly.

    It's not too difficult to get to if you can reach into it from the right side, but if you have another monitor to the right of it up against this one, the only way is from the bottom.

    • The Dell on/off button is directly underneath it on the lower right hand side, not on the back.

    • Are overclocked refresh rates really a thing??
      Im yet to be convinced they're anything more than marketing rubbish.
      Stick the word overclock on it and it's suddenly cooler.
      I have an Asus Preadator that had a 165Hz overclock mode, but i haven't had to adjust anything except a menu option to achieve it.
      So if it's just there in the menu to be toggled on is it really an overclock?

  • 3 years advanced replacement warranty is definately something to consider before buying..

  • This was good value when it came out but nowadays the Gigabyte M27Q is better and is availible for cheaper at $500. Only negative with that monitor is the BGR subpixel layout. Plus that has KVM built in which can cost quite a bit if you want it and have to buy a seperate switch..

    • The BGR subpixel layout is a massive negative for me though. But I agree if that doesn't bother you than the M27Q is amazing value.

      • It says a lot about display manufacturers when they release a product that will look poor just because they could not be bothered to put the panel in the right way up

    • I’ve had the M27Q for 1 week now and the BGR sub pixel layout doesn’t bother me at all. In fact if I didn’t know about it I wouldn’t even have notice it. But YMMV.

    • Doesn't the subpixel layout only matter with Cleartext, which is configurable to match the subpixel layout anyway?

      • I think this is right.
        Why is BGR an issue?

        • Clear text doesn't always work right, the implementation of it isn't as good on say Mac OS. Doesn't seem to bother a lot of people here, but I know if I mentioned the monitor without mentioning BGR people will bring it up.

  • 1ms MPRT

  • What's the difference between this and the pg279q?

  • thanks for the post, already got one and have no complaints at all, but at this price might aswell replace second monitor with one of these too.
