I got a PG348Q

So I created this topic to help answer questions regarding this product. So far early impressions, great screen, no dead pixels, some back light bleed on the top right and top left corners, and overclocks to 100hz without issues.

Edit: just a heads up, the scan line issue that Acer X34 monitors experience is present with this monitor as well, not surprised since they both use the same panel. However it doesn't bother me as its only noticeable against single solid colored backgrounds i.e. Blue skies and you also have to look for it to see it. Easy to loose them during actual gaming. Jus thought I would warn potential buyers who were holding off hoping this issue would be resolved.

Give me a couple of days and I'll update you on how it handles long gaming sessions. As for the curve I honestly don't feel like it's a major difference or adds any advantage to gaming.

Here is a pic of the BLB with the lights in my room off its much less noticeable than what's shown in the picture I tried to get the exposure of the iPhone camera as close to what I am seeing in real life as possible.



That looks like some bad BLB there. Do you have any pictures of it in a completely blackened room? I am disappointed to see that ASUS is still sending out defective panels to unsuspecting buyers. I was really looking forward to this panel but I just don't feel like playing the lottery.

It's hard to take a picture with a phone in complete darkness without it being over exposed or under exposed. It's not as bad as the pic and that room was pitch black at the time of the photo. But yeah there is still some BLB.

It sucks that BLB is an issue that is monitor buyers still have to deal with. All that matters to me though is that I don't see it during gameplay and I've played plenty of dark games like tomb raider, rogue Galaxy, etc.

I was wondering if you could download everquest 2 and let me know if it supports the resolution , if you wouldnt mind please

I apologize I just saw your question, looks like it's already been answered though.

Hey man

First thing is you got a sweet monitor man! I can't wait for the release and getting this bad boy. I currently have 2 PG278q's and still deciding how i should run this setup along side the 34". Are you running both monitors currently based on your pictures? One for desktop space and the wide screen for gaming i assume?

I may do what you do one 278q + 34" (when it comes out). Meanwhile moving the extra 278q to my wifes computer. Undecidied... first world problems.

Yes I am currently running both monitors. I use the PG279Q for browsing because portrait mode browsing is perfect for almost all web pages. I also use it to monitor temperatures during gaming I have a Aida64 showing a sensor panel on that screen.

Also on the odd occasion you get a PC game that crashes where you are stuck on that black screen of nothingness where your computer is responding but the game window refuses to close and is blocking everything including tad manager (PC gaming I know right?) it's easy to move the task manager to the second screen and get rid of the pesky application.

I know it's overkill to use a monitor like the PG279Q for such tasks but I'd rather not sell it on the off chance that there is a game I absolutely want to play but completely lacks 21:9 support, I just move things around and I can game on that instead of the PG348Q. (And yes I know you can play 16:9 games on a 21:9 monitor but this way I get a bigger size 16:9 area and I don't have to deal with annoying black bars).

Wow didn't realize this post would be this long lol.

You are right man - I may do what another person just suggested. 278qs on both sides 34" in the middle, basically use the 278q's for desktop space and gaming when 21:9 is not supported as you have said. Since the 348q does not come out fast enough, I will live through you for now 🙂

I like to know if it is possible to remove the stand? I don't like the stand because it takes a lot space on the desk. I would use third party mount stand.

The stand is removable however I'm not sure how you can use a a VESA mount on this. It was clip on you don't screw it on or anything like that.
