I bought an Asus PB278Q recently and returned the first one due to it having too much of a yellow tint half way to 1 quarter on the bottom of the screen. The PB278Q I got in exchange is more even , although it still has the yellow tint at bottom of screen.
So upon further examining the screen, theres some gradient banding issues when doing the www.lagom.nl
Here is an image showing the gradient ramp, taken with my SLR. It looks better in real life but do you think this is acceptable for this monitor?http://imageshack.com/a/img89/2990/cmnu.jpg
In general the monitor has an incredible image, but simple gradients do reveal banding that seem to be a bit uneven in tone. I'm well aware that monitors do have gradient issues but comparing to a cheaper acer monitor in the house, this is worse. However the monitor is better in many other ways.
Compared to the previous PB278Q, i cant personally remember if the previous one had the same issue or not. They both in general have the same great image though for most use.
I work on graphics (3d modelling, photography etc) and this is to replace a 30inch HP which just died on me. It too had gradient issues horizontally, but i dont remember if it had issues vertically.
Can anyone share, confirm their own findings with this image. Thank you.Edited by DwindleFlip - 3/30/14 at 9:35pm
