The Swift PG278Q comes in a black and red box, with the main selling points listed on a couple of the sides, while the other sides strictly featured the ROG branding, ASUS branding, and monitor name.

You can see above that the monitor is protected by foam and is wrapped in a protective foam bag. The monitor comes fully assembled, so it's practically ready to go right out of the box.

Dead Pixels

No dead pixels were found in the monitor.

Assembly

As discussed above, no assembly is required for this monitor.

Port Layout

You can see the layout of the ports in the picture below.

From bottom to top, we have the power in, DisplayPort, the USB-in for the hub, and the two USB ports that make up the hub. Above that, there is a port for service use only.

Styling

I just want to take a second to show off the styling that I previously mentioned. In the pictures below, you can see how the monitor's design is clearly influenced by the ROG line of gaming laptops by ASUS.

The monitor features the same angular design, which is quite stunning. It also features the glowing red ring around the base.
