ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q G-SYNC Monitor Review
The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q
ASUS went all out on the stand too—it supports height, swivel, tilt, and pivot adjustments. The ROG Swift PG278Q’s height is adjustable from 0 – 120mm, the display swivels 60 degrees to either side, it can tilt from +20 to -5 degrees, and it can pivot from portrait to landscape mode.
The base also features a built-in, lighted red ring which adds a little bling without being gaudy. Stamped into one corner of the base is the ASUS “Republic of Gamers” logo and badge and the angular design language present on the rear panel is employed here too, to nice effect. We should also mention that the base isn’t terribly heavy, though it is quite sturdy. There’s no way you’re knocking this display over without putting some serious muscle into it. ASUS also ships the ROG Swift PG278Q fully assembled, so there’s no need to mount the base yourself, as is the case with many other monitors.
In terms of connectivity, the ROG Swift PG278Q is equipped with a single, full-sized DisplayPort, a power connector, and three USB 3.0 ports—one upstream and two downsteam. This is perhaps the only area where the ROG Swift PG278Q is lacking. Many other displays in this class are outfitted with numerous inputs.
