Amazon has better return policy than newegg unless you have newegg premier account. I was lucky enough they accepted my rma on the first one for 1 stuck pixel with just a regular account. The 2nd is fine except for small dust speck in very top of screen but I'm fine with that, it's not noticeable.

Do you notice a darkening of the screen around the left or right edges? Particularly on a full white or full color screen.

There's no BLB on mine that I can detect, but theres a fair bit of that darkening.

Yeah that's what I thought. But it's unnoticeable unless you shine a direct light. And something tells me exchanging isn't going to guarantee another perfect piece either.

I think I will check with my retailer if he has extra stock. I don't think it's worth the trouble going all the way to the Acer repair center and waiting for an exchange there.

I'm quite surprised they don't have a protective plastic film stuck on the monitor when it's shipped.

That looks very reasonable, to be honest.

I just received mine from Newegg. No sure where I check the manufacture date, but I don't have any dead pixels and very minimal IPS glow, so I'm happy I didn't have to roll the roulette wheel multiple times.

This. Glow doesn't much if at all between units.

It has ULMB, a new and improved version of Lightboost. Works at 85 Hz, 100 Hz, and 120 Hz, but 85 Hz and 100 Hz are pointless.

For someone that plays FPS games, gets over 120 FPS constantly, and has always used monitors at a 120 cd/m or lower brightness, is there any downside to using ULMB?
