Not very charming too look at but you'll notice the connectors at the bottom side of the screen. You'll see a DisplayPort connection, a USB 3.0 HUB and that's it. Well aside from the power connector. This means you can use only one input / source connection. The ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor includes DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output and two USB 3.0 ports for pass-through connectivity.
The ROG Swift PG278Q is part of the Republic Of Gamers series products and that shows, it has an everything but ordinary design, stealthy almost. The build quality is fantastic, very stylish and sturdy. Interesting to see is a red LED ring that fades in and out in brightness.
The PG278Q features a slim profile has a 6 mm bezel, that makes it pretty well suited for multi-display setups as well. It looks awesome alright.
Yeah, that's TN alright. If you move your head up/down/left/right ... you will see a rather narrow view-port.
