GET SWIFT. BE UNBEATABLE
ROG Swift PG258Q is all about speed — making it the perfect monitor for eSports and fast-paced action games. This Full HD monitor has breakthrough 240Hz native refresh rate, 1ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology for silky-smooth gameplay and ultra-realistic visuals. On top of that, Swift PG258Q has distinct ROG-inspired design elements that let everyone know that this is no ordinary gaming monitor.
INCREDIBLY FAST 240HZ REFRESH RATE

NVIDIA G-SYNC TECHNOLOGY WITH ULTRA LOW MOTION BLUR
Coupling ROG Swift PG258Q's 240Hz refresh rate with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology results in the smoothest, fastest, most breathtaking gaming imaginable. G-SYNC synchronises Swift PG258Q's refresh rate to the GeForce GTX graphics card in your PC or laptop to eliminate screen tearing and to minimise display stutter. There's also the Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology to make objects in motion look sharper, so gameplay is more fluid and responsive.
1MS RAPID RESPONSE TIME
ROG Swift PG258Q uniquely fast, with a 1ms gray-to-gray response time to completely eliminate smearing and motion blur. It's especially useful in fast- paced games – so you can take corners like a pro race car driver, or make that impossible headshot.
CUSTOMISABLE LIGHT SIGNATURE
Light Signature lets you create and customise ROG Swift PG258Q's light projection effects. It includes two ROG logo covers, and three blank covers that you can customise with a marker to create your own unique light projections, to shine against your desktop surface.
The ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey provides in-game enhancements like a crosshair overlay, an onscreen timer, a frames per second counter, and a display alignment function.
ASUS GameVisual Technology offers six display mode presets to optimise visuals for different types of content.
NAVIGATION JOYSTICK AND HOTKEYS MAKE GAMEPLAY ALL EASY
A 5-way navigation joystick and four hotkeys on the right-rear of the monitor keep display settings and advanced gaming features within easy reach.
NVIDIA 3D VISION-READY
ROG Swift PG258Q is compatible with the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 kit to open up a world of 3D gaming. All you need is a NVIDIA GeForce graphics card and 3D glasses for a more immersive gaming and movie-watching experience. And with the latest NVIDIA 3D LightBoostTM Technology, you'll enjoy brighter 3D visuals, without an increase in energy consumption.
ROBUST CONNECTIVITY AND CABLE MANAGEMENT
ROG Swift PG258Q has a wide selection of connectivity options including DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI. There are also two USB 3.0 ports for your mouse and keyboard.
Flicker-free technology helps reduce onscreen flicker, giving you a more comfortable, marathon-ready gaming environment. It is designed to minimise eyestrain, headaches and eye fatigue when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.
ERGONOMIC ADJUSTABLE STAND
The ROG Swift PG258Q is specially designed for marathon gaming sessions. It has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, pivot, and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position whether you're on the couch or sitting on your bed.

As my old monitor was hooked up through DVI-D, I purchased a DisplayPort cable in advance. I bought Amazon's own DisplayPort cable v1.2 (AmazonBasics DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable - 0.9 m) as a back up. I had read that the monitor does in fact come with a cable, but the quality of it wasn't great. You do actually get a HDMI cable in the box too, but I am not sure what version it is. I would presume that since the monitor runs natively at 144hz with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, it will be fit for purpose.
The monitor arrives very well packaged. My order came through DPD, and the external box was slightly damaged. Thankfully, the screen itself was very well protected internally, and hadn't suffered any damage.
After setting everything up, I configured the screen to perform at its best. I used this guide: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/asus-pg279q-rog-swift-27-inch-165hz-monitor,review-33467-3.html. It looks absolutely beautiful, especially when compared to my old 144hz TN monitor. You'll want to make sure you change the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor through the Windows settings (right click on desktop, and select display settings).
To test the monitor, I played a bit of Battlefield 1. It absolutely blew me away. I used the recommended settings as per GeForce Experience. The game ran as smooth as butter, and the monitor's standby light glowing red informed me that G-SYNC had kicked in. I didn't suffer any motion blur or tearing. I jumped onto Overwatch next, and I could see a vast improvement there too. Everything was much more vibrant and sharp. I was definitely impressed.
As you may have already read, this monitor is known for suffering from awful backlight bleed and dead pixels, so I ran a few tests, and it turns out I was very lucky. The backlight bleed is almost non-existent. There is a slight glow in the top right corner, but it's completely unnoticeable during normal use. I do, however, have a dead pixel in the top right of the monitor. It's far enough toward the edge of the monitor to not cause me any annoyance, and can only really be seen when looking at a white background, or other light colours.
I am incredibly impressed with this monitor, and I've only been using it for a day. It does everything I need it to, and more. This premium quality comes at a price, but I would say that the price is justified. Here are my pros and cons for the monitor:
- The monitor makes modern games look incredible. It's hard to put into words how beautiful everything looks, and thanks to the 144hz refresh rate and G-SYNC, screen tearing is a non-issue.
- The monitor comes with a DisplayPort cable, HDMI cable, Euro kettle lead, UK kettle lead, and a cable to allow you to use the USB ports of the monitor.
- As this is an IPS panel, you can see the screen clearly from any angle without any discolouration.
- Even taking into account the eye-watering cost, the monitor is worth every penny.
- The buttons on the side of the monitor are easy to use. Activating the turbo mode to increase the refresh rate to 165hz is easy, but absolutely not necessary.
- Backlight bleed and dead pixels are an issue. I got lucky, and only had the one dead pixel, and minimal backlight bleed. For the price you pay, I would like to think that quality control should be considerably better.
A few tips:
- Make sure you change the refresh rate of the monitor to 144hz. To do this, right click on your desktop, select Display settings, Display adapter properties, select the Monitor tab, then change the drop down menu to 144hz (I used Windows 10, but the process on Windows 7 is very similar). If the refresh rate is locked to 60hz, ensure you are using either a HDMI or DisplayPort cable.
- If you plan on sending the monitor back until you receive one with no backlight bleed or dead pixels, note that Amazon will allow you one exchange before insisting you instead take a refund. This information was provided to me by an Amazon representative over live chat before I purchased the product, but your mileage may vary depending on who you speak to, and how assertive and persistent you are.
- You can check that G-SYNC is working by the colour of the standby light on the bottom right corner of the monitor. If it's red, it means that G-SYNC is enabled. Note that G-SYNC only works with NVIDIA cards, and unless your card is a GTX 960 or above, I wouldn't really recommend buying this monitor. Another way to test if G-SYNC is working is to open NVIDIA Control Panel, click on Change resolution, then select Display at the top, and tick G-SYNC Indicator. Every time you open a game, a notification will appear on the left to let you know that G-SYNC is enabled.
- Make sure that your PC can handle 1440p at a high enough refresh rate, or you won't get the most out of this monitor. I am using a GTX 1080Ti, and an Intel i7 7700k, and I am consistently blown away by the image quality.
In summary, if you have a PC that's capable of 1440p at high enough settings, this monitor is the way forward. The upgrade from a 1080p TN panel is incredible, and is truly something that you need to see to believe. Be warned that your monitor will likely suffer from backlight bleed or dead pixels. If this doesn't bother you, or you have the time and patience to return/refund until you receive the perfect product, then go ahead. You won't regret it.
Out of the box this monitor looks great but it isn't as good as it can be. Calibrate it correctly and it looks fantastic - IPS level fantastic and with a much quicker response time and no back light bleed. Put you brightness down to near zero for a start - trust me.
I understand that there were some manufacturing inconsistencies with the previous version (PG278Q) but I certainly have had no issues for the 2 months that I have had this monitor. It's outstanding. Buy this instead of the IPS version and put your savings toward the GPU, you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Generally good colours if tweaked (Red 97, Green 92, Blue 100), viewing angles are acceptable for a TN (though not from below - and you'd not want to run this 90deg rotated as 'below' would be 'from left') however original monitor that was shipped had a noticeable yellow tinge towards top of screen is noticeable
Less input lag than my old Samsung 226BWs - the only good panel I've used since my awesome Panasonic 19" CRT bit the dust 10 years ago - I actually have two 226BWs and they are very similar in viewing experience.
Nice matt screen finish.
Adjusting the Colour Temp, for personal preference, is great unless you then apply the Blue Light filter in the evening as this has the effect of wiping your preferred Colour Temp. and it resets the R,G & B values back to 100 - this means that every day after using this feature you're going to have to reset your preference. That's rather poor in my book.
Light In Motion is just the one colur as opposed to previous incarnations and the 24.5" model I believe.
And now for the failure and why I returned the first monitor that was shipped:
In the Windows environment:
I inititally setup my GPU brightness with Windows colorcpl.exe as the NVidia panel caused severe banding of colours in game if I set it to look right in Windows, however it was still far too bright when viewing a Browser page (such as this). I tried all games modes but had to set the monitor to 0 Brightness in all. nb the black 'X' in the colorcpl.exe setup was always very visible.I settled omn using the default 'Racing' mode.
nb - PG248Q.icm from the Asus disc was installed and is showing in Windows.
Still using the Windows colorcpl.exe, I could not get it to satisfactorily calibrate Brightness/Contrast/Gamma using the Lagom test screens as reference- if I got one to look correct then at least two of the rest were wrong. It was also still quite bright when looking at a predominantly white web page in a daylit room (and too really bright at night even with Blue light filtering) and I found myself leaning back away from the screen to cope.
With the Asus in In Racing Mode and with it's Gamma set to 2.2, Colours tweaked as above(Red 97, Green 92, Blue 100), Brightness at 0 and contrast at 54, no Blue Light filter, no OD, no Dark Boost and no Adaptive control and using the DisplayPort connection (incidentally, HDMI was similarly bright) and, still with the Windows colorcpl.exe, the Lagom Gamma test was showing 1.7 (I simply cannot get a higher value (ie lower down the bar) no matter what I did); the first two in the top row of black squares in the Black Level test were missing; and just about see the 1st bar in the Contrast test; White Level is pure white from 248 onwards with 247 only barely perceiveble if you scroll the screen up/down; Gradient Banding test was fairly good.
With this overall setup, and still in Windows. Just to mention, I do like a dark environment to work/game in but I have only just bought my first pair of prescription sunglasses and am happy with brightness outdoors in general.
In a Game environment:
Now, the above might have worked for Windows but it left me rather in the dark in Game. So I went back to the NVidia panel and found that, keeping the monitor's settings the same (Brightness still at 0 etc), if I were to set the nVidia panel to Brightness 30%, Contrast 50% and Gamma 1.02 would give me a good gaming experience but would again leave me with an overly bright screen when returning to Windows (why this should be when neither of my 226BWs did this is beyond me). The results in the Lagom test now were most peculiar and very poor indeed- only 4 Black squares visible out 20!; White Saturation 253 was just about perceivable - the only test to have improved; Gamma was about the same at abnout 1.7; Contrast seemed to lose bars 2 or 3 and below. Unless I'm doing something wildly wrong then clearly this particular monitor cannot cope with full-screen games and fulfil a passable experience in Windows without two different settings (and even then is still too bright) which is not really satisfactory IMHO.
Some extra detail - if I drop the nVidia brightness to 20 - a bit more comfortable then I'm down to 2 Black square in the Lagom test.
All my tweaking above did not change the yellow tinge, in fact it became more apparant due to one's focus on trying to acheive a good result. I took 4 shots: a shot of a fullscreen blank Notepad which I split and flipped to show the gradual tint, however this didn't really convey the problem fully so I attached three shots of a quick Excel sheet with 3 pairs of random colour blocks and took pictures from above, straight on and one from below to show that it wasn't a viewing angle thing (in fact the 'from below view' was horrible!).
And as for the replacement:
Much easier to setup, though brightness is still dialled right down - probably made easier in part due to all of the previous tweaking I went through on the first monitor, though it may actually be due to the previous monitor being flawed of course. There is still a faint yellow tint to the top of the screen, which can be observed if actively looking for it, though it is noticeably less than the previous problem that was observed. Whilst I can see the difference, and could supply more photos of it, in practice it doesn't seem an issue and is far better than living with a single dead pixel (the reason I had avoided the Acer Predator which seems to suffer from that?).
Ultimately it's still a good monitor albeit with a hefty price tag.
One thing to note is that the Amazon returns policy, whilst very good in this case, has a potential problem as they suggested the Pass My Parcel service to return the monitor despite it being larger than the accepted max size for the PMP service - cue a home pickup ny the Hermes guy.
