This truly is a top of the line monitor, and I'm always struck with awe with how well the picture looks with 4K HDR.
Jumping from 24inches to 27 inches is like stepping into another world.
It runs really well with my RTX 2080 @ 1440p and 4k
If you don't want to run 4k resolution, games will still look good @ 2560x1440 resolution on this monitor.
I guess my only gripe comes from the well known "IPS glow" when a screen is pitch black. Google it to see what I mean. But in all honesty, it's not that big of a deal or noticeable when you're playing games with dark areas.
If you have the money, this is definitely worth it. I'm going to be keeping this for a very long time.
*8 month UPDATE. Fan whine is UNBEARABLE*
So I've had this for about 8 months now and the fan has st, arted to make a really high pitched noise. It sounds like a C note. It is ABSOLUTELY unbearable and the only way to stop the fan is to literally unplug the monitor. One of the other reviews mention the whine too and mine just got worse.
I think it's safe to say this is definitely a monitor I cannot recommend because of this. The only way I can bear it is if I'm wearing headphones.
Probably my biggest buyer's remorse of this year.
I started the RMA process, paid to have it packaged, used the FedEx label their support team provided, and sent it to them on November 12th. It was returned to me on the 22nd and I praised them for having such a quick turnaround time.
But..... then I plugged it in using the same DisplayPort cable I used before (and had been using with my PG279Q while I waited for it to be fixed) and the screen is completely black with minor outlines of what the PC was projecting. The menus won't show up, there's no image, and the monitor is completely unusable.
I went back to the customer support team, sent them the attached video, told them what the new problem is, and they actually had the nerve to send me graphics and instructions on how to plug in various types of cables.... They also asked me for my phone number... This process started when THEY called ME on my phone. I also provided my phone number in my emails 4 or 5 times.
The kicker is that they insisted that I pay more money out of my own pocket to package the monitor, again, so it could be sent back to them for more repair. I asked to speak with a supervisor (which coincidentally sounded exactly like the previous associate I was speaking with) and he also said they won't pay for the packaging. At this point I'm getting unbelievably frustrated and angry, so I asked to speak with a manager or someone who I can actually have a real conversation with. Finally when the opportunity arose, I was put on hold for a half hour and they said they couldn't find anyone so they'll have someone call me later.
A day passes, no phone call. I follow up with them again, I get another call from a person who also sounded exactly like the original associate, and they say the same thing. They won't pay for any packaging in order for them to fix THEIR mistakes with the monitor. What kind of company forces the customer to pay out of their pocket so they can fix their mistakes? Is this some kind of sick joke?
The whole experience was like talking to a brick wall. This monitor was $2k and they returned it to me in a worse condition that's completely unusable.
I am 32 years old and this is hands down, without a doubt, the WORST customer service experience I have ever encountered with any product, company, or industry as a whole. While I was on hold waiting for a "manager" to speak with me, their automated phone messages talk about awards, customer service praises, accolades, etc. and I can tell you right now: NEVER buy a product from ASUS. They treat their customers like garbage and they simply won't care what you have to say.
If I could, I would give this product 0 stars. As it sits, it doesn't work and it's nothing but a $2k paperweight.
If someone from ASUS, who isn't likely the same person I've spoken with countless times already, wants to reach out to me so I can FINALLY put this problem to rest and use my monitor, please feel free. I really really don't think that receiving full compensation to send this product back for repair, so they can fix THEIR mistakes, is too much to ask. Quite frankly, if it was an option at this point, I would LOVE to just send this piece of trash back to them and receive a full refund... but of course there's no way they'll do that.
In any other instance, the person I've dealt with would be fired for incompetence. Clean up your act, ASUS. This is absolutely unacceptable.
Sidenote - the monitor is amazing and awesome as a $2000 monitor should be.

This screen is BRIGHT. (which apparently is key to making HDR useful and look good, and it looks amazing)
Couple of notes to point out as of November / 2019 (time of writing the review) for this monitor:
The active cooling fan is no where as 'annoying' as people claim.. I run an air cooled system and a hepa filter in my room I cannot even tell that there is active cooling on this, unless you have a complete silent build (passive cooled) I couldn't see you even telling this is active cooled.
Do note to get 144hz you need to enable overclocking, which might be the fan noise people are complaining about. However unless you are running 4k beyond 120 fps there is no reason to overclock to 144hz.
- For full 10 bit color depth the max refresh you can run this monitor at is 98hz (or max 98 fps displayed) (not 144hz)
- 120 hz is the native refresh rate on the monitor, which you run with 8+2 bit color (over display port only of course) this is viable as there's no notable image quality loss to me between 10 bit vs 8+2bit
- 144 hz 4k is possible, it is considered overclocking the monitor.. however you drop to 8+2bit color AND 4:2:2 chroma subsampling most say they can't notice it, but especially on text to me it's completely garbage, it looks like your using 80-90's style 3d glasses on most text displayed.
TLDR: 98hz for max quality @ 2160 (4k), 120hz for un-noticeable image quality, 144 hz quality is pure garbage. Consider this a 120hz gaming monitor, 98hz if your a color snob like myself.
The other point is finding a modern day video card that can run gsync hdr, possibly ray-tracing and 4k resolution beyond 120 fps. (hint: no card currently exists)
However you are definatley able to make sure the panel isn't easily obsolete anytime soon. definatley future proofing yourself here.
On to the RMA hell:
My monitor arrived with 7+ bright pixels (how did Q/C miss this???) image should be attached from a cellphone pic of the monitor. Now 7-9 ish pixels is hardly noticeable to the naked eye at 4k most of the time, but when you see it. you cannot unsee it. and at a 2,000cdn + tax monitor this shouldn't be happening.
I'm current in a RMA queue with Asus, they claim they 'have no more stock' of these monitors, are they limited run? discontinued? I have no idea, regardless I'm currently unable to get a replacement unit as Asus claims to have no more of these monitors in stock. (odd)
All said and done despite the minor nightmare of spending 2 grand on a monitor with not even dead but bright pixels is just not acceptable, I don't know if it's a shipping issue, or a Q/C at asus issue, but your premium products should be premium.
I would get this monitor again at a discount if given the chance provided I can actually get a working non defective panel.
Will have to wait for the 30 series Nvidia cards or hopefully AMD to pull another trick out of their sleeve in the GPU market to properly drive this thing, but defect aside it looks amazing, and out of the box color accuracy is very very good) IPS glow very minimal aswell.
Short of an OLED display it doesn't get better than this right now and probably won't for a while.
Yeah you pretty much need an RTX 2080 Ti or titan to really take advantage of the 4k resolution which I have the former. But even 2k looks good on the monitor which I can run all games at with an RTX 2080 ti.
Also it is technically a gaming monitor so image response time and input lag is also very good. Don't have measurements but they're out there to find.
Took off a star from picture quality because of 3 not so huge reasons. One is that there is some slight uniformity issues that really I've seen from pretty much every monitor I've owned but still it's unfortunate to see them again still, especially being such an expensive monitor. The uniformity issues are that there is some very slight backlight bleed on some of the sides. Also a bit of IPS glow mostly noticeable top left but even overall almost the whole left side looks like it's glowing a but brighter than the right. I've seen this with every IPS monitor I've owned with slight variations. ALTHOUGH, with FALD enabled it makes these issues (the bleed and IPS glow) almost completely unnoticeable. And really there isn't any reason to ever disable FALD unless you're doing something like photo editing.
The second reason is that there is some blooming caused from the FALD in really dark backgrounds with small brighter spots like when your mouse cursor or text is on a full black background. There are not too many situations where this is noticeable though and it's just something a limitation of FALD atm. It would take a fair amount more dimming zones to fix it.
Now for the third is that when overclocked to 144hz there is some color compression going on but the only time I noticed it was with SDR text when HDR was enabled. It's really not noticeable 99% of the time.
In conclusion, being that is has 384 FALD zones and is an IPS display, this monitor has unmatched picture quality for it's type. By like, a lot. It's definitely worth it if you have an RTX 2080 Ti.
If I'd have to be honest though it's probably better to get the Ultra Wide 35" version of this monitor and I might have gotten it instead if it wasn't over $1000 more. If you have the money and the desk space though I'd get that one over this one.
One more negative I'll throw out there is that I don't like the stand design for it. Very non practical. Highly recommend a 3rd party stand or mounting option.
So it looks like there is a newer version of this monitor coming out some time this year with more dimming zones. I would probably wait for that. The new model is the PG27UQX.
I will also note that there is no fan noise at all that I can hear of which is the common complaint with this monitor.
No regrets purchasing this monitor. Highly recommend!
**Vale la pena comprarlo si tienes la tarjeta ( o las tarjetas) de vídeo que puedan darte la calidad visual de la altura de este monitor.
