Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

Hence why I got a refund for my PG259QN and got the Alienware instead! Haven't had a single issue with that one. Historically Asus has been decent but I feel they rushed things with the PG259QN to be the first to claim the 360hz... and they cut corners. A LOT of corners.

Re: Alienware AW2521H 360hz Arrives!

I saw the review above and I cringe every time he speaks about himself. "Essentially, what you should know is that I'm really good". WHO SAYS THAT! And once again, Shroud is also really good but doesn't know much about monitors. In terms of settings, I actually found "fastest" to be the best setting...

That's a great question, while I did have the calibration sheet with the Asus, colors still seemed off. Perhaps it was saturation, brightness or contrast related.

Re: Alienware AW2521H 360hz Arrives!

Yep, having used both, it now feels as if Asus really rushed to get to market first to be 'the first 360hz' monitor while Alienware (Dell) spent their time refining it and creating a proper product with the same panel. I can tell it's the same panel but the way each company tuned it makes a huge dif...

Re: Alienware AW2521H 360hz Arrives!

It's here. And... it's considerably better than the PG259QN. Pros: - Right out the box, the colors are set properly. - The stand is super sturdy (not that the PG259QN wasn't, but this is on another level) - The presets... there are TONs and they are pretty good. Tweaking colors was considerably easi...

Alienware AW2521H 360hz Arrives!

My Alienware AW2521H 360hz monitor is scheduled to arrive tomorrow (replacing my PG259QN). Hopefully it makes it (and isn't delayed).

I'll be happy to answer any questions about the monitor! Ask away.

Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

I started the return process on my Asus PG259QN and purchased an Alienware AW2521H instead. I'll be equipped to provide a subjective comparison when the new monitor arrives. First, the return is due to a dead pixel is the MIDDLE of the damn screen. I tried everything I could to revive it / fix it in...

Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

And now I have a stuck red pixel in the middle of the screen!! I'm really not having a good experience with this monitor. Currently running stuckpixel software to try to fix it (it's been running for 5+ minutes and it's still stuck) At this point, I'm thinking of returning the monitor that I've been...

Re: Official Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Owners Thread

I *finally* received my PG259QN but couldn't land on a color profile / setup I liked last night. Also, I don't know WHY but things seem a little softer than my LG 240hz. I wonder if there was any sharpening happening on the LG. I'll have to play around with it today! Did we come to a conclusion on t...

Re: Shroud received his 1440p 240hz display

I agree that when you're gaming, the difference isn't as noticeable. Here's the thing though... people that think that streamers/gamers know anything special about computer hardware is ridiculous. SOME of them do but they are the exception rather than the rule. Shroud knows how to click heads. Howev...
