Nice monitor choice. I have the PB278Q also. biggrin.gif

How much of a difference did it make? Just something you have to see for yourself?

Night and day. Having two PBs really exposed just how different each panel can be. Brightness settings (which you would think are universal since it's a set-scale PWM) require different settings on each screen as does contrast and even hue. The i1 is also cool because it can, through software, adjust the settings in the OSD on these screens.

The cost wasn't so much a factor when I realized I had ~$1300 in displays on my desk and am likely to add a third within the next few months.

The best part about it was that out of the box, each screen had a different tinting. My first panel had a yellowish tint with all settings at default, and the second was reddish. I'd adjust the gains and offsets, then realize that adjusting one or the other then threw off what had been a balance and it went on and on forever, Since I am OCD, this problem most likely will not affect other users. But for $1300, I demand that the colors on each screen be identical. And now they are. biggrin.gif

ETA: This second monitor, in addition to no dead/stuck pixels and zero light bleed, is an exceptional example of the PB series! That contrast ratio is pretty freakin' fantastic for a non-MVA panel.

You will love it, got Shimian qlite 1440P. It's a thing of beauty, gaming @ 1440p is a big step up from 1080p.

Hopefully you get a decent screen with no dead pixels thumb.gif

It looks like an issue in the lcd pannel. It is something you would have to see if they would even honor a repair for.

EDIT - can't be cracked - it is to straight of an issue. mabye something causing a column of pixels to get stuck. I seen it happen more often as a horizontal line but have seen vertical ones but usually just 1 or 2 pixels wide.

Have you tried tapping the screen gently to see if that changes anything. I'm gonna guess if its broken you would have seen some kind of physical damage on the front or back of the unit.

Am in the same boat as you. One of my monitor is yellowish and the other one is blueish. Looks like i'll get the i1 Display Pro as well. Does this work for gaming as well. Or is it just for windows like browser,videos and stuff
