Me too! Got it this morning before work and set it up, geez it's big, going to take sime getting used to. Ran Crysis 3 on high as well and got similar results. Calibrated it as per this thread, and a little tweaktomy own tasted. Man, what a beautiful screen it is. Had a little bleed, but not too bad, and no dead pixels that i can see. Money well soent!

Went from 5760x1080 tn panels to a single 2560x1440 pb278q and wow. Much much better than the 5760x1080. Love this monitor. No stuck pixels and very minimal light bleed in the upper right corner so i am satisfied thumb.gif

Yea, I just now finally got an email back from the same guy who issued the RMA and who is apparently doing the servicing on my monitor asking me to explain what inputs I used, what settings I used, and how they could recreate the problem, considering they couldn't see the blatant backlight bleed. I then sent back a very lengthy email explaining that I have used many different graphics cards, nearly all of the inputs, and things like that and reassuring him that it is indeed the monitor. I even sent him the same picture i posted on here of the whole monitor with the areas of backlight bleed clearly circled in white. thumb.gif

Anyways, I also asked him to just send me a new one that doesn't have backlight bleed if he still cannot find the problem. I'll keep you all posted, again.

Good luck. Although if this individual can't see the problem on yours I wonder how he would be able determine if your replacement is free from excess bleed. tongue.gif

Wow, I got a Spyder4Pro just this week and decided to do my own calibration and measurements and damn... the 6500k preset in mine was closer to 7600k. It was easier to just set to 5500k, which was almost spot on at 6600k.
Not sure if it's because of some different measurement or what, but my contrast ratio was said to be 550:1, which seems pretty bad (close to that calibrated, or not).
Guess I got a very crappy panel =/ and it's a second one, cause the first had a dead pixel and some strange smudge.

Toying with the idea of trying 1440p.

Asking current or previous ASUS PB Series PB278Q owners - If you had the choice between your monitor and any other monitor (price aside) after owing the PB278Q would you have chosen any diffentely?

I like this monitor and contemplating between IPS or PLS.

I'm also looking at Dell U2711 (no back lighting) and other monitors under the $1000 price range. Rather than start a new thread....I'd ask you guys since I'm leaning toward PB278Q (with back lighting).

Despite my Asus PB27Q have a dead pixel short answer no i would not buy another monitor.

The Asus PB278Q is by far the best monitor i have had or seen so far and i would never go back to 1080P ever

If price wasn't an issue, I'd probably go with that Viewsonic equivalent. Either way, never going to anything less than 1440p again.
post #399 of 1501
if the money isn't issue then i'd like to get Viewsonic VP2770 or Samsung S27B970D which both are not using PWM backlight dimming .

but Asus and Dell are in my budget and i decided and went with Asus which this is the best monitor i own

Yesterday received mine smile.gif Seems not that much backlight bleeding and zero dead pixels.
Building quality seems decent enough, although I got some really minor scratches on the glossy part
of the bezel on the top of the monitor (seriously need to surpress my neurotic visual eyes! frown.gif).

All in all really satisfied with the screen and amazing images (esspecially with 4k movies!) thumb.gif
Applied the profile from tft-central, seems beter but 2night gonna try some more settings smile.gif
