The ASUS VG279QM is one of the fastest gaming monitors available thanks to its 280Hz overclockable refresh rate. However, this doesn’t provide a big difference over other 240Hz models – some of which offer more noticeable advantages such as a higher pixel density or better MBR performance.

    Precise colors, wide viewing angles, ELMB-Sync, Quick response time and low input lag, Plenty of gaming features including FreeSync, Fully ergonomic design

  • -

    Low pixel density, Backlight strobing technology could be better optimized, IPS glow and mediocre contrast ratio (as expected from this panel technology)

Came with Dead pixels in center of screen. Brand new monitor and defective. Will return.

This monitor will go black on its on and each time it lowers the refresh rate down to 144 and I will have to turn the monitor off and back on to fix it! I’m not the only one either that this happens to
