Hey guys,

I didn't see this posted, so I thought I'd share. The Asus MG279Q Monitor was a popular deal last month at $10 more!

The open box version is $407. Anyone have any experience buying open box from newegg? I'd hate for this thing to arrive just for me to send it back because of dead pixels.

Had very good experiences with open box items . I bought 2 motherboards , a video card and something else I can't remember but no issues with any of them . With that said I dunno if I would go with an open box monitor because there could be some things wrong with it that may not necessarily be considered "defects" by the vendor ... For example excessive bleed, or maybe a few dead pixels etc . I would personally either buy brand new or refurbished but not used/open box

Lots of QC issues reported on this monitor, so check it carefully for dead pixels and light bleed if you get one. It seems like its 50/50 great panels and crap ones.

This is definitely the monitor to get if you plan on running AMD cards for a while though. If you want an IPS with 1440p and 144hz you can buy this or you can buy something for $700.

Personally, I'm waiting to see how Pascal and Polaris (the next gen cards from AMD and Nvidia) look before committing to one brand or the other. If Nvidia continues to smoke AMD I will get a Gsync monitor instead

Thanks for sharing.. I messaged neweggs service rep about return limits on a open box monitor. Ill go either open box or new based on his response. I suspect you are right tho that a couple dead pixels or other minor issues might not be sufficient to warrant open box return. We shall see. In either event, I want this monitor bad.

yeah i'd say if you don't mind the potential hassle then Newegg is a pretty good place to buy an open box item and I'm sure they will give u a full refund if there is something wrong with it. I'm personally super picky with displays but who knows you have a pretty good chance with getting a good one.

I see 27"1080p monitors on sale for about $200 quite often. Obviously, there is something about these monitors that make them much superior to $200 ones but I can't seem to understand what. May someone who's more experienced (and willing to pay $480 for a 27" monitor) tell me what is about these monitors that is worthy of a 140% difference in price compared to the other ones?

I bought an open box monitor from Newegg a year ago. The return was a serious hassel and not consumer friendly. I rather pay the extra money not to have to deal with the time and stress of the experience again.

Other posters are right. These monitors are hit and miss. The problem is those that experience problems are more vocal about their issues than those that had a perfect experience. I skipped Newegg and went with Amazon the second time around ending up with a WareHouse item labled "Very Good" that was perfect and looked brand new. At least I could count on Amazon backing up their customer service if anything was wrong.

Thanks. it seems like new is the way to go for this model. this is a solid price. not the lowest it's been, but very tempting.
