No, its just lower quality on the asus with the weird behaviour to create greesy spots when you touch it, which are hard to clean, but the sharpness difference is probably non visible.

I would personally say that my acer had the perfect coating, it was the best possible balance of clear image but still anti-glare.

Asus one is like 90-95% similar image, but lower quality overall.

Seems like AUO wanted to save some additional manufactoring costs and changed the process to the worse actually than it was for the very first batch of this panel. Seeing all the dust and **** under the coating, its like they outsourced the manufactoring of this particular panel to a garage type factory where noone cares about clean environment and wearing gloves.. (My 279 had finger prints spread all over the coating out of the factory, it def. didnt get opened after the factory)

So I have had the monitor for a week now and I have not had the same issues I had with the PG278Q. I have not had any blanking out issues and its not repeatedly crashing and creating vertical lines.

Colour uniformity is definitely there, I can see it on the overclockers site that its a bit more blue in the bottom right hand corner compared to the rest of the screen. Its not something that bothers me as the colour shifts on the PG278Q's were much worse than this in actual impact but its definitely there on my model.

165hz just worked, not had any problems with it running it on a 3m mini DP to DP DP 1.2 HBR2 capable cable from startech. Colour contrast looks pretty good and the amount of blur in games seems reasonable. Its a keeper for me, best monitor I have owned and certainly a lot better than the PG278Q.

Can someone explain this to me? I have glow in corners of PG, like everyone. Left side being more whiteish/blueish while right side being more whiteish yellowish glow in corners? Is this this colour uniformity?

Becasuse apart from that I didn't notice anything else about color shifts etc. Testing on grey, green, yellow and white background I didn't see any colour shift.

Apart from black when I see glows on corners.

Explanation please? smile.gif

Really? Then it's definitely a thing Acer could do better.

ACER cannot do anything better with the monitor, only worse

I would say one is normal IPS glow and the other is backlight bleed. Can be of course combined with glow as well...

Backlight bleed = the backlight is showing through the edges of the bezel. Looks like the backlight is... bleeding out of the bezel.

IPS glow = the screen just glows. Visible on a dark screen. Seems to emanate mostly from the corners, especially the right side and especially the lower right side. Can look yellowish/brownish or just white. If you want to really see it in action, on a black screen stand up and move to your left while looking at the screen.

Color uniformity = what it sounds like. The colors are less accurate at certain parts of the screen. On this monitor it will be hard to notice this unless yours is seriously messed up.

Then I got 3 messed up monitors in a row. 3 different shops - noticable color uniformity issue on all of them.
