Yes. I was commenting that I've had the PG279Q for a week now, and it's color quality were noticeably duller than my old Dell IPS. It gave it a washed out appearance.

So I decided to buy a monitor after the new year.

The bezels on the Asus VG248QE and the Benq XL2720Z are built like tanks...

It's not the bezels so much as the panel itself. It's just notorious for BLB and glow. People need to understand that about this monitor, the junk PANEL is at fault, not the monitor itself. The XB270HU suffered just as bad, and that had a totally different thicker bezel all around. Whether you buy the PG279Q, the XB270HU or the upcoming XB271HU, you're all entering the same lottery as they all use the same shi**y panel.

Right? Which is why I couldn't help but face palm every time someone claimed that they would wait for this Asus monitor instead of buying the already available Acer XB270HU a few months back thinking that the Asus would somehow perform better quality wise.

Well, for example me and many others here, were waiting for Asus because of quite simple reasons: design and look. For some it might sound strange because XB has everything PG has and is cheaper, but I love PG stand, ergonomics, look, back design, menu and joystick added to it.

That is why I waited for PG. Now I am getting replacement for it so yes, it is same story as with XB but I just like PG better in terms of how it looks on my desk smile.gif

That's fair enough and a plenty good reason to wait. Other waited for this monitor simply for the included HDMI port for console connectivity. There are just a few people who actually waited for this monitor purely for unproven QC reasons.

QC seems just as bad, and the new Acer actually looks nice! So lets hope they will deliver a better product Incase we start to refund and buy the acer instead XD
