[Official] Asus PB278Q & PB278QR Thread: Read the 1st Post - Page 140

I notice the extra space which is nice, but the text does seem smaller to me. I think this is due to the increased PPI. My 24" 1080p had a PPI of around 92, this monitor has a PPI of 109. That is why text looks smaller. Even writing this I can definitely tell that the text is smaller.

Hmm yea, maybe some programs and things have different results, I tried moving a few things around and finally saw a difference, but not on everything. I am also using a 23" 1080p monitor for my secondary so the PPI is like 95 if i worked things out right.

If its insanely noticeable and hard to read then thats a different story, but if its slightly different I wouldnt mess with scaling or anything as you will probably get used to it fairly quick and then can still enjoy the extra space the higher resolution provides. Perhaps sit a bit closer if possible, I think I am roughly 18" away from mine when sitting upright.

Also, I have noticed the annoying yellow light bleed at the bottom right of my screen as mentioned here by another user. There is nothing that can be done about this or should I exchange my panel?

Do you have the Q (US version) or QR? I have replaced several PB278Qs from Amazon because they all had an annoying stuck colored pixel. They also all had varying amounts of light bleed so it depends how distracting it is. You might get a better one but it could be even worse lol. On another note what is the manufacturer date on the back of yours? The one I am keeping is from Dec 2014, the Jan 2015 ones all seemed to have terrible bleed. The very strange thing is on the same settings the Dec 2014 colors are much different. Check out my picture below of the whites. Which does yours look like?

My monitor is made in Jan 2015, I just bought it yesterday. Not sure which mine looks like more but the only thing that bothers me is the yellow backlight bleed at the bottom right corner which is really only noticeable on a black backgound. The funny thing is that I can only see the bleed when I look straight at the monitor, if I look from the right it is not there.

Can you take a picture on a cell phone or something? That is what I used. Here is another picture of the backlight bleed on each. The Jan 15 one is on the left and looks a lot worse to me, I think the right one is very good considering that is max brightness. Pictures make bleed stand out more and at brightness levels that don't burn your eyes out it isn't noticeable.

This is the panel with 100% brightness and an all black screen. As you can see the bleed at the bottom right corner is quite significant to the point where it is noticeable on dark backgrounds. It wouldn't bother me as much if it were white light but it looks yellowish to me when looking straight at the panel. I know someone else also mentioned this earlier back.

Well I guess it doesn't do much good to compare because your camera is picking up much more than mine but I definitely think you should exchange it. Since you can see it during normal use that is a major problem I can't see any bleed unless I am testing for it. Hopefully you got it from somewhere that is easy to deal with.

I was doing more research and I guess this is considered IPS glow, which is quite common in these types of panels... Guess I'll have to learn to deal with it.
