I've read people saying if you haven't had the issue you will with this monitor, how does that work? Why would it appear or come up later vs always being an issue?

Picked up my XB1 last night, $1090AUD. Really love it, aside from the backlight bleed in the bottom right corner, which is visible very frequently in desktop use. Should I return this, or are the chances stacked that I will get a worse panel than this one?

This is with my brightness set to 28.

That's pretty bad. Especially for the price you paid.

I'm not happy with it. Every aspect of the monitor has been great after calibration, but this much glow at only 28 brightness is crazy. Now to engage in the horrible war with my brick and mortar to return this, and wonder how long I will not have a monitor for before a replacement.

I can't see any bleeding on my current dell at 40 and below. I'd send that monitor back and try again.

Went to the store after work and returned the XB271; thought I'd try my luck on a PG279Q.







Honestly lost, don't know what to do for a screen right now.

If you can live without the higher refresh rate and G-Sync, I'd go LG 34" Ultrawide when on sale. Either the 34UC88 or 34UM88. Other option would be to wait for the Acer x34p or the new LG 34" 144Hz UltraWides coming in the next couple of months. Price will be steep though.

I'm putting up almost 144 frames the whole time I play but....is this characteristic of everyone else's experience? The 4ms response time isn't fast enough to keep up with high paced FPS?


Anyone else play games that are very fast paced and notice the slight blurring/tearing/lagging when moving your mouse very quickly? I've come from a CRT so I have never seen this before

I haven't had any trouble but, I also haven't done a direct comparison to a CRT, let alone a good one. Your eyes should adjust eventually as long as you stay away from the CRT.

Which CRT have you been using all this time, I'm curious?

I've been using this bad boy:
Samsung Sync Master DF1100
It still works very well after all these years, manufacture date of Nov 2005.

I was hoping to get my 1080 FTW a little more room to shine in but the LCD ghosting type distortions I've found with this monitor make me unsure
