ASUS does not cheap out on its packaging, with the same story being told for the new ROG Swift PG279Q.
The front of the box is filled with everything you need to know at the bottom: WQHD/2560x1440 resolution, IPS panel, 165Hz refresh rate, a 4-way ergonomic stand, and of course - NVIDIA's G-Sync technology.
There's not much going on at the top, but we still get teased about the 2560x1440 resolution and 165Hz refresh rate.
Even the side of the box is filled with information, so whatever angle you're looking at the box on the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q, you're going to be informed about every single bit of ASUS' latest and greatest gaming monitor.
Now for a trip around the monitor, which is one of the best-looking gaming displays you can buy.
The front of the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q, with an ASUS logo on the thin bezel, and DisplayPort and HDMI logos in the bottom left-hand corner. To the right, we have the icons for the buttons that are hidden behind the display.
From the rear of the display, we have a Republic of Gamers (ROG) branding at the top of the stand. ASUS branding at the top, and the controls for the OSD on the left (which will be on your right, behind the monitor when it's placed in front of you).
Here we have the ROG Swift PG279Q in Portrait mode.
Here we have the buttons for the monitor, with the red joystick kicking ass to control the PG279Q with. A much better control system than competing displays.
Here's the menacing ROG logo glowing red... now this is an awesome touch from ASUS!
