Packaging & Unboxing
Our review sample of the ASUS ROG Swift PG27U monitor has been passed around a bit, so please excuse the slightly beat up box. A front and back picture of the monitor cover most of the box.
Besides the carry handle, the top of the box is adorned with logo after logo for all of the features of the monitor.
Most of the same logos can be found on the side of the box as well.
Inside the box, the PG27U is sandwiched in a massive block of Styrofoam like most monitors.
A protective padded bag covers the monitor inside the foam.
The rest of the stuff like the cords, power brick and stand in cutouts in the base block of foam.
It takes a moment to fish all of the stuff out of the packaging.
You get three ESD safe type bags with USB and display cables, and the power brick and regional appropriate power cord.
The brick is rated for 180W, enough for a high-end laptop.
The top side carries a glossy ASUS logo.
You get a DisplayPort, HDMI, and USB 3.0 cable.
The cables are ROG branded with the signature ROG eye logo on each. Connectors and contacts are also gold plated.
The light projection under the monitor is done via a user replaceable lens with the pattern you see. You also get a few blank lenses to put your own projection pattern on for complete customization.
You also get a driver disk, which is somewhat amusing for a monitor
