Out of curiosity, how bad is the glow on you guy's PB278Q's? I am currently having problems with the glow on mine (just RMA'ed it and got the same problem). For me, it's a shimmer that covers 1/4 to 1/3 of the screen if I'm sitting a little less than 2 feet looking at it straight on and destroys the colors of anything within that range unless it's an extremely bright scene. Is that normal for this sort of display technology or not?

so it seem the glow is the common thing for this monitor. the glow only appear in total dark scene and if i move screen up a little bit or change viewing angle it does improve and eliminate the glow . it doesn't seem to be problem with me though as i upgraded from TN panel therefore this is a big improvement in term of colours and viewing angle .
so this is as far as the LCD technology goes at the moment. its really depend on luck for someone to buy a monitor ( Blacklight bleeding , glow, deadpixel, stuckpixel and Ununiform ) some less or some more than another ,even with most expensive monitor it will still suffer from it .

Hmm, interesting to know. I'm trying to figure out whether the amount of glow/bleed on mine is par for the course or whether I should just learn to live with it. Would you mind looking at a picture of the glow on mine and tell me whether the glow seems excessive or not, in your opinion?

the angle that you took photo make it look worse. if you take from str8 front of monitor it won't look like that . ( when i look at the screen from the front angle , my one still have glow from the bottom right and left but when i adjust my stand monitor up a little bit then the glow disappear ) so its only show it some angle when you look at monitor and at total dark room and dark scene only, you won't see that in day time or normal use ,

if you want to avoid all the LCD problems , you have to use CRT monitor if you don't mind bulky as some ppl are still using them as they hate all the LCD issues

this is my 6th LCD monitors in pass 8 years. i can tell you that this is the best monitor i bought yet.

what you can do now is adjust the stand to the right height and set brightness lower to 27-35 ( this should at least make the glow less than before )
but from the amount of money of the monitor if you are not happy then i think you should return and try to exchange or change monitor .

I received my second Asus PB278Q, if you read the whole thread, you may find the story about the 1st - defective one.
The second one seems to have no problems that the 1st one had and I'm happy now so far smile.gif

The only minus so far, is that when I'm trying to play Crysis 3 on new monitor, I cannot play as good as on the smaller one biggrin.gif
it needs some time i believe, to gain the skills on the huge one smile.gif

Hey guys, I'm getting pretty frustrated with Asus. I went onto their website to check my RMA status, and they have said that they have found no trouble on my monitor while they were repairing yet. It says, "waiting for customer confirmation, no trouble found," yet I haven't received an email from them, a call from them, nothing in my technical inbox on their website, nothing at all. I would hate for them to just ship it back to me without doing anything to it, and me wasting $60 to ship it to them for no reason.

Heh, they just did the exact same thing to me. It said that on their website, so I talked with a few ASUS reps about it. He said that they installed new parts in the monitor and wouldn't email me, but I received the same monitor back a few days later without a single thing done to address the problem.

My advice, get a hold of them and make absolutely sure that they are fixing it and not sending it back with nothing done.
