They can still screw up the coating, but I have a feeling they will go for a less obstrusive/agressive coating this time around.
IPS does not automaticly mean better then TN.
Sounds really nice, but I will be very catious personally. IPS does not automaticly mean better then TN. I'm just wondering what a IPS Swift would offer to me, if I don't care about viewing angles. They can still screw up the coating, but I have a feeling they will go for a less obstrusive/agressive coating this time around. Other then that, I'm not interested in realistic colours, I prefer unrealistic but bright colours, wich the Swift does very well. Then there is the IPS glow, wich ruins the black uniformity of the screen. The current Swift has incredible black uniformity, especially on my last october unit, one of the best I've ever seen.
As a gamer, I was not even slightly interested in the Acer IPS, I don't do artwork nor do I watch movies. I only play games.
I'm just being cautious, but hopefully we'l be surprised the coming days with what Asus has in store for us. If someone else can convince me to be more optimistic, i'd like to hear your opinion why an IPS Swift would be better, for gaming.
It probably uses the same panel as the XB270HU which by all accounts has a superior and less aggressive AG coating compared to the PB278Q.
TN vs IPS
with current technology no one should be going TN unless you are dirt poor and can not afford a good IPS screen. .
I take it you really dont care about visual accuracy of a picture
PS4 is smooth as butter on it too.
I'm just hoping this monitor won't have QC issues like the other recent 144-Hz.
Yeah man that buttery smooth 30 frames per second. Really shows off what your monitor can do.
He's probably talking about his TV. Most modern tv's have decent interpolation processing which can make a PS4 look much smoother than any 144hz screen.
I dunno. i get the feeling they'll use a different panel.and it'll be better than the acer. nice effort by acer though.
G-Sync is technically better than Freesync. So if you want the best you know where to go.
been waiting almost 4 months for this monitor to be released what is the hold up
i do not understand why acer was able to release a IPS 144 hz gsync monitor before everyone else
What the heck are these monitor manufactures thinking????
Does not make any sense
